The Maxima 7 flicker-free LED light is a 1200 PAR HMI equivalent with 700 Watts of power

LED lighting technology has come very far over the last decade. It’s replaced the more traditional incandescent “hot lights” we used to see in video, movie and photography studios. The Maxima 7 is a new 5600K Chip-on-board (COB) LED light that’s the equivalent of a 1.2K HMI that lets you pretty much recreate the sun […] The post The Maxima 7 flicker-free LED light is a 1200 PAR HMI equivalent with 700 Watts of power appeared first on DIY Photography.

Canon has officially announced its new 24-105mm f/4-7.1 RF mount kit lens

Well, there was bound to be a cheap “kit lens” coming along at some point for Canon’s RF mount. I don’t think anybody anticipated it having an aperture quite this slow, but here we are.

The Canon EOS 850D/Rebel T8i brings 4K video to “enthusiast” level DSLRs

Canon has now officially announced the new Canon EOS 850D/Rebel T8i, and it looks like the rumours were mostly true.

The Edelkrone JibONE is a motorised remote controllable mini-jib for your camera

I see a lot of jibs, sliders, cranes and other doohickies appear across my screen as new gear is announced. Other than the ridiculous ones they use in Hollywood, not many of them grab my attention. But Edelkrone’s new JibONE certainly has.

Sony’s new Wireless Shooting Grip lets you vlog more easily and control your camera remotely

Sony has announced the GP-VPT2BT Wireless Shooting Grip. Don’t get too excited, this isn’t a “grip” in the traditional sense that allows you to more easily shoot portrait orientation without contorting your arms.

Paul C. Buff is back with the LINK battery-powered, TTL & HSS-capable strobe

It’s been a while since Paul C Buff has really released anything new. Sure, they announced the “DigiBee” back in 2016, but that was more of a refresh of the old AlienBees than an entirely new product, swapping out the modelling light for an LED, and it was still pretty limited in capability.

The PowerEgg “X” drone lets you fly in the rain and even take off or land on water

Way back in 2016 at Photokina we saw one of the craziest looking drones we’ve ever seen. It looked like a giant egg – hence the name PowerEgg. Created by PowerVision, it offered a very unique design, but it didn’t seem to really take off (pun unintended). It looked like a great performer, but it […] The post The PowerEgg “X” drone lets you fly in the rain and even take off or land on water appeared first on DIY Photography.
