Preventing light from reaching the camera's imaging sensor sounds counterintuitive, but that is what you want a neutral density filter for.

From RØDE:

RØDE Microphones is excited to announce the next iteration of its field recording app for Apple’s iOS devices, RØDE Rec. This update, released to the app store today as a free upgrade, has a number of enhancements including a dedicated iPad interface, MP3 publishing and support for ten different languages.

RØDE Rec has been incredibly well received since its launch in January of this year, where it was the only app on the market to allow for recording at 24-bit/96kHz (using RØDE’s iXY stereo microphone).

This is the first update since RØDE acquired the FiRe app from creator Audiofile Engineering, and signals RØDE’s intention to provide not only the best field recording app for mobile devices, but a platform that rivals dedicated audio field recorders.

The update’s addition of a retina-compatible iPad interface enhances control on the larger device considerably. Users can now view the waveform, transport controls, non-linear editing and much more, all in the one screen making recording, editing and publishing a breeze.

The popular MP3 format has also been added, following overwhelming demand from existing users.

“While RØDE Rec is designed for the capture and sharing of broadcast-grade audio there’s no denying the popularity and indeed the convenience of the MP3 format.” explains Damien Wilson, RØDE’s Global Marketing & Sales Director.

“RØDE Rec is one of very few apps on iOS that supports MP3, and combined with one-touch sharing via dropbox and email it’s a great option when you want to share an audio grab quickly with friends, colleagues or clients.”

This updated version also marks the app’s debut in localised languages, with support for Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese (simplified), Japanese and Korean, in addition to English. The localised apps are available on the relevant international iTunes App stores.

An update to RØDE Rec LE, the free, feature-limited version of RØDE Rec will be released shortly, including the dedicated iPad interface and enhanced stability. Download the app now for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on the iTunes App Store or via www.rodemic.com/getroderec

Adorama carries the RØDE iXY stereo microphone for iPhone/iPad.

From Think Tank Photo:

Think Tank Photo today released the eighth in its "About A Photograph" video series. In it, photojournalist David Burnett, described by American Photo magazine as one of the "100 Most Important People in Photography," narrates the fascinating story behind his disturbing images of victims of Chilean president Augusto Pinochet’s brutal dictatorship.

Santa Rosa, CA – October 02, 2013 – Think Tank Photo today released the eighth in its "About A Photograph" video series. In it, photojournalist David Burnett, described by American Photo magazine as one of the "100 Most Important People in Photography," narrates the fascinating story behind his disturbing images of victims of Chilean president Augusto Pinochet’s brutal dictatorship. The video interview can be found at http://aboutaphotograph.com.

Burnett sensed the "sixtieth of a second" when the eyes of "The Man In The Picture" (as the photo soon became known) caught Burnett’s and history was captured. The image ran in magazines and newspapers around the globe soon thereafter.

"There can be a moment when a photograph almost transcends the public moment and becomes something very private within that space," said Burnett. "I’d love to take a picture of him now. But more importantly, I’d love to shake his hand."

Burnett is a photojournalist with more than four decades of work covering the news, the people, and visual tempo of our age. He is co-founder of Contact Press Images, the New York based photojournalism agency now entering its 37th year. In July, 2011, David worked with Photographers for Hope to create a workshop for homeless news vendors in Glasgow, Scotland. He is also collaborating with the group "Facing Change - Documenting America" which is trying to recreate a modern version of the FSA, and take a serious look at the issues facing the country during these turbulent economic times.

From Profoto:

We do not need tell you why collapsible reflectors are great. Every photographer knows that (affordable, lightweight, easy to use, etc.). But what you most probably did not know is that Profoto now makes them.

Profoto’s Collapsible Reflectors stand out from the crowd. First of all, the sturdy yet collapsible squircle-shaped metal frame is equipped with two ergonomically shaped handles, which makes the reflectors much easier to fold and hold in various positions.

Secondly, Profoto's Collapsible Reflectors are designed with high-quality fabrics and the frame itself is far tougher and durable than the average reflector.

Last but not least, Profoto's Collapsible Reflectors are available in no less than ten different versions. Four types of two-sided Reflectors are available: Silver/White, Sunsilver/White, Gold/White & Matte Black/White. There is also a translucent screen available to be used as a diffuser. Each of these is available in two sizes: Medium (80 cm /32’’) and Large (120 cm /47”).

In short, it is now easier than ever before to obtain your first piece of Profoto gear, and those who are already familiar with the brand can expand their set of Profoto tools with a powerful and cordless continuous light source – also known as the sun.

The Profoto Collapsible Reflectors are officially released on October 1.

Adorama carries Profoto gear.
