LED Flashlights, Great For A Focus Light

Image from Amazon.com

I ran into these cool flashlights from a student in the Mentor Series Workshop in New York City. We used them to allow the camera to auto focus in a dimly lit restaurant. Later we also use a pair of them to give a champagne bottle a nice backlit glow in anther shoot. The have now found a place in my location kit that I take on every job.

You can find them here on Amazon

No-Moiré Netting Background, From California Sunbounce

no-moire-net-background-half-stop
This netting is primarily used in the film and video world when doing an interview. Usually it is placed 5-6 feet behind the subject. It is perfect for placing behind your subject to give a soft diffused look to the background. The result is that the background is darker and slightly out of focus.

The Lightware LT300 long lens case has been around for a few years and is known as a ultra crush proof case for your high value lenses. The new 2014 Mac pro slides right in like it was made for it. All of Lightware’s Lens Tubes are built with an interior structure of a crushproof tube. This is then surrounded in layers of shock resistant, closed cell foams, which are then encapsulated in a padded soft tricot fabric. Combined with a padded ballistic nylon exterior, the case is formidable against the rigors of travel. An excellent choice to protect your new Mac.
