From PocketWizard:
New Auto-Sensing Transceiver allows photographers to combine on-camera TTL flash with remote manual flash
So. Burlington, VT (March 7, 2016 )– LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the world leader in reliable wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and light meters, announces that the new PocketWizard Plus IV Transceivers first announced last fall, are now shipping to retailers in the United States.
PocketWizard now offers the best of both worlds in one easy-to-use, reliable wireless trigger. The Plus IV Auto-Sensing Transceiver provides photographers with the benefit of on camera TTL flash combined with remote manual flash. When used as a transmitter, the top shoe provides on camera TTL compatibility with most Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Fuji and Olympus cameras and flashes. When used as a receiver, the top shoe pairs with virtually any speedlight for easy mounting and manual power adjustment of a remote flash. Built on the reliability and simplicity of the PocketWizard PLUS legacy line of products and loaded with numerous features and functionality, the Plus IV Transceiver is the “go to” radio when a fast set-up is required.
“Serious photographers understand the benefits of controlling the light at the time of exposure, both in-studio and on location,” said Karen Marshall, CEO of LPA Design, the U.S.-based manufacturer and distributor of PocketWizard products. “I’m delighted that PocketWizard engineers have been able to add TTL pass–through, for use with on-camera flash, and a metal foot and applied it to our time-tested technology, offering our users even greater versatility.”
The Plus IV includes performance enhancing features such as Long Range and Repeater Modes to help photographers tackle the most challenging shooting environments, opening the door for never-attempted image ideas. All features, channels and zones can be easily set using the soft-touch keypad and are clearly displayed on the backlit LCD display.
The new Plus IV looks like a Plus III on its side, with the most requested features added in. However, the Plus IV is not a replacement for the Plus III, rather they’ve been designed to complement each other. For example, an ideal set-up might be a Plus IV for on-camera flash in TTL mode, another Plus IV with a speedlight mounted in manual mode and two Plus IIIs connected to studio lights. The Quad-Zone feature in both the Plus IV and the Plus III allows photographers to easily turn their remote flashes on or off directly from the camera, and either create different looks or work in different areas.
The versatile new PocketWizard Plus IV is compatible with all other PocketWizard radios and virtually every popular flash and professional digital SLR camera system. The standard ISO compatible hot shoe can accommodate almost any speedlight for simple manual triggering, including newer Sony models. It also communicates with all PocketWizard-enabled photo gear including select Profoto, Dynalite, Norman and Photogenic flash systems and Sekonic light meters.
The new PocketWizard Plus IV Transceiver is now available at Retailers in the United States at an MSRP of $153.00.
B&H has the PocketWizard Plus IV Transceivers available for preorder.

With its 15 stops of light-reducing power, the Super Stopper sits at the top of the Stopper family, joining the Big and Little Stoppers in the long-exposure photography revolution.
The Super Stopper is designed for use in bright conditions, during the middle of the day – a time that’s traditionally considered unsuitable for photography because of the harsh, contrasty nature of the light.
However, with the Super Stopper filter fitted, the softness that arises from any movement contrasts pleasingly with any areas of bright light, creating an effect rarely seen in photography before now.
Like all the filters in the Stopper family, the Super Stopper is constructed from the high-quality optical glass and is supplied in a metal case for protection. It has only a minimal colour cast that is easily corrected in postproduction.
The exposure guide chart below allows you to find out the extremes to which photographers can now take their long exposures.
Lee Super Stopper Exposure Guide
B&H will carry the LEE Filters 150 x 150mm SW150 Super Stopper.

From Profoto:
Profoto releases collapsible, more portable version of the classic Beauty Dish
When the Profoto Softlight Reflector was released in 1980, fashion photographers soon nicknamed it “The Beauty Dish” due to its unique ability to bring out the beauty of the model. Since then it has grown to become one of the most iconic tools for creating a creamy yet crisp light, often referred to as a “beauty light”.
Now, Profoto releases a new version of this classic. The new version is named OCF Beauty Dish and is a collapsible, more portable version of the original.
The main difference is that the OCF Beauty Dish is not made of metal but high-quality fabrics. When collapsed, it is stored in a carrying bag that fits in a small backpack. Mounting the OCF Beauty Dish is quick and easy too, thanks to a clever, patent-pending design that allows you to snap it onto the OCF Speedring without having to bend and fumble with the rods. The entire tool, including speedring and deflector plate, weighs a mere 0.48 kg (1.1 lbs.). When mounted, the OCF Beauty Dish has a diameter of 56 cm (2').
The OCF Beauty Dish is available in two versions: white and silver. The white version delivers a softer and slightly more even light than its silver counterpart, while the silver version delivers a bit more punch and contrast. Both versions are delivered with deflector plate, diffuser and carrying bag.
Being a fully integrated part of Profoto’s Off-Camera Flash system, the OCF Beauty Dish can be used with the B1 and the B2 O -Camera Flashes, as well as the new OCF Gels. Note that it may not be used with any other Profoto flash due to heat issues.
The OCF Beauty Dish is available from March 7 at a recommend price of €160/$179. The OCF Speedring is bought separately.
The OCF Beauty Dish is also included in a special offer available as of today – buy a B1 or B2 Off-Camera Flash kit before June 7, and get the OCF Beauty Dish White 2’ and an OCF Speedring for free.
B&H carries the Profoto OCF Beauty Dish.

From Canon USA:
Liebman listed in top ten “influential movers and shakers” by Long Island Press for fifth straight year
Mar 4, 2016 – MELVILLE, N.Y. – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce that Seymour Liebman, executive vice president, chief administrative officer and general counsel of Canon U.S.A., Inc., has been ranked fifth among Long Island’s 50 most influential leaders as part of the Long Island Press’ “Power List.” This is the fifth consecutive year that Mr. Liebman, who also serves as senior executive officer of Canon Inc., and vice chairman of Canon Solutions America, Inc., has both made the list and been placed within the top 10.
“To once again be named alongside these influential leaders in our area is truly an honor that I accept with tremendous gratitude,” said Liebman. “This distinction is a testament to the success of Canon and the great work that everyone continues to do here. I congratulate my fellow honorees and thank the Long Island Press for this prestigious distinction.”
Mr. Liebman accepted the award alongside fellow honorees at a special reception event, hosted this year at Canon U.S.A.’s headquarters in Melville, New York. For thirteen years, the Long Island Press “Power List” has been a collection of influential individuals throughout the fields of business, politics, education, healthcare and not-for-profit across Long Island. Honorees are selected from hundreds of potential candidates by the Long Island Press’ editorial staff based on their impact on Long Island over the past year.
In his current position, Mr. Liebman is responsible for legal affairs and corporate administration functions for Canon Americas. Currently, Mr. Liebman serves as vice chairman of Canon Solutions America, a wholly owned subsidiary that provides sales and support for Canon and Océ hardware, software and services targeting general office, production print and large format markets in the United States. Mr. Liebman's leadership continues to help strengthen the Company's position as an imaging industry leader.
In conjunction with his roles at Canon U.S.A., Inc. and Canon Inc., Mr. Liebman serves as a board member for various local councils and associations including the Touro Law Center where he serves on the Board of Governors, the Long Island Association Board of Directors, the Information Technology Industry Council and the Council of Overseers for the Tilles Center.
From Sean: Does anyone else think it's odd that a company that is famous for manufacturing DSLR cameras and lenses fails to include a headshot of the main subject with its press release?
