Photo by Maci MacPherson for Grand Canyon National Park
I came across these photos of a highly talented and super creative photographer Matt Shumate and his beautiful aerial shots. Then I watched this video on how he was accomplishing it.
Whoa! If that doesn’t make you cringe…..! The thought of throwing upwards of $5,000 dollars of delicate photographic equipment into the air is enough to make some photographers lose it. Yes. His images are beyond beautiful and incredibly interesting. But the risk involved is enough to turn my stomach. So what if there was a better, safer way?
There IS a better way that I invented — The Maven Adapter No need to risk your expensive equipment to get that amazing shot. For a very small investment the Maven Adapter will enable you to connect your already existing camera gear to the end of a hardware pole, allowing you to extend it 15 feet or higher. It will also allow you to connect Speedlites, an umbrella, go pro or other accessories.

This is a pretty great idea. An affordable, portable, teleprompter that uses your smartphone. They’re calling it “The Parrot” and they’re looking to raise $30,000 on Kickstarter. Check out the video below to see how it works.
After a Japanese camera website found a patent filing for a Nikon 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 VR full frame lens the rumors began swirling. Nikon Rumors is convinced it’s just a matter of time and that 2015 will see the release of a full frame mirrorless camera from Nikon. Check out what they’re saying here.
