“What is the Delkin Difference?” asks Jenn Sherry, Delkin's Director of Retail Sales & Marketing. She continues, “a handful of key things make us rock. Our Delkin BLACK line offers the World’s Best Warranty for memory cards, the cards come serialized from authorized retailers and we offer customer service in four time zones around the globe. No other memory card company offers that to their customers. If you haven’t purchased a Delkin CFexpress card before, give us a chance.

It is important to note though that CFexpress™ Type B cards are not backwards compatible with either CFexpress™ Type A, CFast 2.0 or CompactFlash hosts.

In addition to their “Lifetime Warranty” policy, Delkin continues to offer a unique built-in insurance policy for their BLACK memory cards, known as the “48-Hour Replacement Guarantee”.

While I'm sure the new show will offer great opportunities, I'm going to miss the old PhotoPlus Expo.

PHOTOPLUS Embraces New Identity as Create NYC, Relocates to Brooklyn to Welcome Creator Community

MAY 2, 2022

After two years of in-person event cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PHOTOPLUS is proud to return this year as Create NYC Powered by PHOTOPLUS. To be held from September 29 to October 1, 2022, the three-day event leaves the Jacob Javits Convention Center for the Duggal Greenhouse in Brooklyn, NY.

The photography industry’s premier trade show morphs into a festival experience. Create NYC immerses attendees in anything and everything Image Culture. It celebrates all visual storytellers whose work crosses various platforms, expresses shared experiences, inspires dialogue for change, and blurs the lines between art and cultural relevance.

Create NYC puts education and experience first, featuring a main stage of dynamic speakers who will strike meaningful conversations about the impact of imagery on society. Additionally, the event will offer attendees the opportunity for intimate educational moments through creator walks, sessions, and lab-style workshops – all known as Creator Experiences led by engaging visual creatives, including photographers, filmmakers, editors, artists, and more.

Tickets for Create NYC will be available starting June 13. Unlike in previous years, ticket quantities will be limited.

“The decision to reimagine PHOTOPLUS into Create NYC was in response to demand from a rapidly growing emerging creator community,” said Create NYC Show Director Joseph Kowalsky. “The definition of an imaging professional and visual storyteller has broadened. Create NYC aims to be the home for all using imaging technology to create stories that trigger emotion and impact society.”

About Create NYC Powered by PHOTOPLUS: A 3-day experience based in Brooklyn, NY, that celebrates the world of Image Culture, shedding light on visual storytellers that transcend the boundaries of the frame, page, or screen to broaden and share collective experiences, inspire meaningful conversation and change, and act as the bridge between artistic work and cultural relevance.

When other serious photographers are photographing you instead of the amazing scene in your viewfinder, your sanity feels questioned.

Despite appearing big in this image, Lathe Arch is relatively small. Making it appear large in the frame requires getting close to it relative to the background. Getting close from the best side of this arch offers very few options, and gaining this vantage point required getting into a small opening between the large, abrasive granite rocks.

The tripod legs were spread straight out, straddling the crevice, and I was thankful for sturdy boots that were not crushing my feet despite being wedged between the rocks. I was mostly hidden from people walking by but was apparently photo-worthy to a couple of photographers that noticed me.

The widest focal length available on the mounted lens was 15mm, and that angle of view was not nearly wide enough to capture the entire arch and the supporting rocks beside it. Thus, a panorama was called for.

I suspected that this scenario was coming and often have a Really Right Stuff MPR-CL Rail with Integral Clamp in the bag. The rail mounted on the vertical side of the L-plate allowed the lens to pivot over its nodal point, ensuring that the foreground details aligned when stitched together. While nodal alignment is not essential when the foreground is distant, this foreground was very close.

There was a lot of blue sky above the arch, but much of that was framed (and cropped) out of this image. The 22mm focal length provided a sufficient vertical angle of view. The finished horizontal angle of view was determined by the sum of the camera angles used for the pano.

The next issue to resolve was the inadequate depth of field. The closest foreground rock was immediately in front of the lens, while Lone Peak and the mountains beside it were far away. This scenario calls for focus bracketing, an easy strategy with the Canon EOS R5.

I considered adding HDR bracketing to the already complicated capture and processing but didn't — and didn't regret that decision. The R5's dynamic range easily handled this scene.

After dialing in a manual exposure that barely avoided red channel overexposure, the camera was rotated to the left-most side of the capture, autofocus was acquired on the nearest point of the rock, and the set of focus bracketed images was captured. The ball head base was not close to level, so the panning base could not be used for the lateral movement. The ball was loosened, and the camera moved using the thirds gridline to locate the next position. Moving the bottom-left thirds gridline intersection to the former position of the bottom-right thirds line intersection provided a considerable 2/3 frame overlap between image sets, with the electronic level ensuring the camera remained level.

A 1/3 overlap is usually adequate, so moving the bottom-left thirds gridline intersection to the former position of the bottom-right line leaving the frame would have been more efficient.

Additional sets of images were captured until the complete width of the pano was finished. The result was five images per focus stack and four focus-stacked image sets for the panorama.

Creation of the final image involved processing the stacks and then creating the panorama from the four stacked images. While this process may sound complicated, it was simple. The computer did all of the work.

Capturing this image was high on the awkwardness scale, but as usual, I barely remember the discomfort, and the image will bring back the great memories of this morning long into the future.
