Yesterday at the ever-popular Launch Pad event, WPPI 2013 attendees got a sneak peek at some of the products being displayed at the Trade Show. While many exhibitors displayed their latest wares, here are a couple that caught our eye.
Fiilex LED lighting
The two ex-Brooks photography students who developed these new LED lighting systems claim that they provide full spectrum color tuning so they can be used to match other lights. The P360 has an array of specially designed Dense Matrix LEDs that can be tuned to different colors and color temperature settings from 3000K to 5600K. The P200 FlexJet is a similar unit but it is designed to be affixed to fiber optic or acrylic light sources for delivering creative lighting. Details can be found at www.fiilex.com.
As it’s name suggests this is a device that can be used with a Canon or Nikon DSLR to wirelessly transmit photos to an external device such as a iPhone or iPad for viewing images. It can also capture JPEG images instantly and be used to control the camera remotely. It fits on a camera’s hot shoe and is connected to the camera through its USB port. Details at www.hypershop.com.
