"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending August 31st, 2013
In the news...
On Tuesday, PocketWizard announced the availability of their Hot Shoe to Miniphone Cable. Dave Schmidt, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for PocketWizard noted, 'This cable has been long overdue in our line. There are several flashes on the market that skipped the basic PC port making this cable a necessity and the PC port is not known for its reliability. This high-quality cable will provide the connectivity and reliability photographers expect from PocketWizard.'
On Wednesday, Adorama announced its new Glow series light modifiers from Flashpoint. The Glow series includes budget-friendly softboxes and octaboxes made for studio strobes and shoe-mount flashes. Check out the Glow series at Adorama for all the products offered.
In site news and reviews...
On Thursday, Bryan published image quality test results from the Canon EOS 70D. The camera seems to produce results that are a great balance between the 60D’s and T4i’s sharpness levels. Bryan also posted an MP3 of the 70D’s frame burst - sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
