The Profoto Pro-7B Lighting Kits

If you're looking for both portable and truly affordable studio quality light, consider the Profoto Pro-7b. With an effective 250 full power 1200ws flashes per battery, recycling between 0.09-2.8 s, and flash durations as fast as a 1/3000 of a second, the Pro-7b will give you the light you need, wherever you need it. The Profoto Pro-7b is the battery pack for everybody with serious lighting needs when away from the studio. The unit also delivers a full 7 f-stop range in 1/6 step adjustments. Reflector and 100 watt modeling lamp included.

These state of the art lighting kits are highly portable, ever-ready, powerful, and stylish. Our kit includes one 1200 watt second Pro-7B power supply with one battery, one lamphead. The kit rents for $75 per day. An extra lamphead is available fo $20.00/day, an extra battery is $15.00/day.

Canon EOS 50D

Our EOS line up now includes the Canon 50D. With an effective resolution of 15 megapixels, this camera is an improvement of 50% compared to the 40D's image resolution of 10 megapixels. It contains a higher image buffer, the Digic 4 processor. Also noteworthy are the newly enhanced Live View, integrated cleaning system, and Auto Focus system. Our rental unit includes the grip and two batteries. Give it a try for $90 per day.

Nikon D700

The full frame digital camera is now available to the public and is becoming increasingly popular. The familiarity to 35mm operation is returning and Nikon has helped create the market for this type of camera with their FX badged D700. Like the Canon 5D, the D700 uses a 35mm sized sensor and offers the same image quality of the Nikon D3 in a smaller package. The camera will accept DX format lenses and integrate the required resolution crop. Unlike the D3, the D700 has a built in flash, which allows it to become a flash commander in the Nikon Creative Lighting System. It is a rugged build and available for rental for $150.00 per day, which includes the vertical grip and two batteries.

Sigma 8mm F/3.5 Circular Fisheye

This circular fisheye lens produces circular images with an angle of view of 180° when attached to a full-frame digital SLR or 35mm film SLR camera. On an APS-C sized sensor, the lens will become 12mm. It has a fast maximum aperture of F3.5 and a minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm (5.3"). Sigma's super multi-layer coating and Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass provide excellent image quality for digital and film SLR cameras. The special fisheye design allows maximum creative expression and a different point of view. The lens is available for rent in both Nikon and Canon EOS mount for $25.00 per day.

Two New DSLR Cameras & Rebates From Canon

(excerpts from

Canon's update to the wildly popular full frame EOS 5D will be soon available from Canon and it's better than ever. The EOS 5D Mark II has a stunning 21.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor, a vast ISO Range of 100-6400 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 12800 and H2: 25600), plus EOS technologies like Auto Lighting Optimizer and Peripheral Illumination Correction. It supports Live View shooting, Live View HD videos, and more. It can shoot up to 3.9 fps, has 9 AF points plus 6 AF assist points, a new 98% coverage viewfinder, a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots/VGA) and a rugged build. Full-frame shooters rejoice! For more information click here.

For stunning photography with point-and-shoot ease, look no further than Canon's EOS Rebel XSi. The EOS Rebel XSi brings staggering technological innovation to the masses. It features Canon's EOS Integrated Cleaning System, Live View Function, a powerful DIGIC III Image Processor, plus a new 12.2-megapixel CMOS Sensor and is available in a kit with the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens with Optical Image Stabilizer. The EOS Rebel XSi's refined, ergonomic design includes a new 3.0-inch LCD monitor, compatibility with SD and SDHC Memory cards and new accessories that enhance every aspect of the photographic experience. To find out more click here.

And a Canon Winter Rebate program is now in effect, so from now is a great time to consider finally purchasing a 70-200mm f/2.8 IS because you'll save $125. More information and a downloadable coupons available by clicking here.

Leica Intoduces Something New; the Leica S2

(excerpt from Leica press release)

This camera revisions camera technology in through an interesting approach. With a custom 37.5-megapixel, 30 x 45 mm sensor that is 56% larger than full frame, it establishes parameters of imaging excellence that are well beyond those obtainable by conventional pro-caliber DSLRs. In the Leica tradition, it utilizes the classic 3:2 aspect ratio that corresponds to the human field of vision and is widely acclaimed as the Leica Format.

In designing this brilliant new camera, Leica's engineers took a close look at the best existing DSLR designs and then synergized them into a radical but practical new camera that combines the performance parameters of a medium-format digital camera with the ergonomics, form factor, and handling ease of a 35mm SLR. The result is the new Leica S2, an entirely new, finely crafted, professional tool developed in-house by Leica with hands-on input from some of the most renowned professional photographers in the world.

It incorporates an advanced new dual shutter system with in-body focal-plane shutter for fast lenses, and in-lens leaf shutters for high flash sync speeds, an ultra-high-precision autofocusing system, a new series of lenses designed for the highest possible performance with the new sensor, and a Maestro image processing system that provides twice the speed of comparable medium-format backs, reduces power consumption, and provides in-camera JPEG capability. Remarkably, all of this has been incorporated into a camera that is smaller than a full-size professional 35mm SLR, and still has the unmistakable look and feel of a Leica.

Nikon Improves Upon Its Bright Creative Lighting System Idea With The SB-900

(information collected from

The SB-900 is Nikon's newest addition to their Creative Lighting System. Like the SB-800, the SB-900 is able to control an infinite number of compatible speedlights with four available grouping channels. However, SB-900 carries some improvements, such as an expanded zoom coverage of 12-200mm, auto FX/DX lens recognition and color gel detection, and flash tube overheat protection.
