The tiny but awesome Nissin i40 flash is now available from Mainlinephoto

Kowa wide angle MFT lenses available from Mainlinephoto

We are proud to have added to our growing range of Micro Four Thirds lenses. The Japanese made Kowa range which includes the 8.5mm and the 12mm. Lots of fun to be had with these little beauties!

KOWA 8.5MM

 

Also available in Green to special order, I think all lenses should be green….

 

The 8.5mm 2.8 looks to be a red hot seller especially neat is the close focus of 20cm. This means that it will be a very cool wide angle for video on the GH series cameras and the Blackmagic Pocket Cine Camera. Available to order here.
