When you need the camera, you can simply press the red release button on the plate and grab it. So if you are really into outdoor photography, then is the perfect clip for you.

The Gnarbox

The Gnarbox - Photography Gadgets

This is what we call a modern solution to a modern problem. Photo and video editors are aware that getting the work done on-the-go is no simple task. After finishing your shoots outdoor, you will need your laptop for editing the files. This is where the problem arises. Your footage and your files are at a risk of ending up corrupted on your memory card or hard drive. Gnarbox tackles this issue by bundling a Wi-Fi hard drive with a quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM, a dedicated GPU, about seven hours battery life and a comprehensive mobile app.

It is the first rugged device which gives you full control over your HD content while on-the-go. It has been designed for your media content. It is the only product that downloads your camera’s data, organizes your files and allows you to quickly add current highlights at full resolution from your smartphone. So you no longer need to take your laptops wherever you go. Just plug in your camera’s memory card, connect to the Gnarbox Hotspot and open the app.

Petzval 58

Petzval 58 - Photography Gadgets

Photography with the involvement of technology may have gone digital, but, there are still a lot of die-hard analog fans out there. Lomography’s new Petzval 58 lens is all about the bokeh, that wonderful blurred background technique that makes photos look dreamy.

The first thing you’ll notice about the Petzval 58 lens is it’s shiny brass made body, just like their Petzval 85 lens and the original Petzval lenses from 150 years ago. The Bokeh Control Art lens is a manual focus lens with no electronics component at all. It uses the classic gear rack mechanism for focusing, a design that is pretty much old fashioned these days. The 58mm lens has a maximum aperture of f/1.9 and it is said that 58mm focal point is more suitable for portrait and landscape. The amount of bokeh can be adjusted using a seven-step control ring, which Lomo says had not been possible before. In all, this is an amazing lens to be added to your collection.
