Handy app for getting your tripod and head level, Pro Compass iphone app

This is a great little app that really works as promised not only does it look cool but it does the job of getting everything level quickly, especially in low light no torch needed. Those in camera levels can be very inaccurate so spend the dollar and get it today. Oh and works as a compass too!

More info on this great tool can be found here at Hunter Instruments. Only available for the iphone.

A must have for the travelling outdoor photographer. The Walkstool.

This great little product caught our attention sometime ago and we have now managed to get supply of the Swedish made Walkstools.

Once you have used one of these you will be going why didn’t I think of this. Not only is it really well made and very comfortable ( and we mean all day comfy) it packs up small and is lightweight. Perfect to simply be left in the car as a go to seat, or use it when shooting with a tripod not only is this more relaxing but as you lower the tripod you are more stable. More uses than a ferret and less smelly everyone deserves one. Tip the 55cm suits most folks.

Voigtlander 25mm MFT Lenses get an Update

Voigtländer has announced a highly anticipated and improved 25mm 0.95 MFT  lens  expected to land in March.

Step-less aperture control – like on the 17.5mm variant – will be possible on the new 25mm lenses.

With tack-sharp optics and that solid brass “Leica” feel, this lens just got much better for those wishing to use it for serious videography work.  Here’s a photo I took last year with the first model and my Olympus OM-D.
