This class will be appropriate for all DSLR users, but equipment demos will focus on Nikon and Canon speedlights. Students should bring their camera and speedlight so they can follow along and shoot during demos. Participants should have a solid understanding of Photo 101 (ISO, shutter speed, f stop, flash synch) prior to class. If you need a refresher, consider our Photo 101 Class on January 20th, 7PM-9PM.
Sometime last night and this morning Nikon Announced that they will have two new cameras out soon. The Nikon D5, and the Nikon D500 are the official names for the two models. Stats wise they both seem to be incredible, and should out perform anything in their class at the moment.
We do not have any solid information of when the release of these two cameras will be, but we will take pre-orders on them if you like. Call or stop by to do so, or if you just want to geek out with us over images and/or stats of the camera, feel free to do that too. Keep in mind that we do take trades, and you can trade your gently used gear towards the cool new stuff.
Is that Pesky Christmas Cash your family members gave you burning a hole in your pocket? There are plenty of nifty items here at the store that you can purchase with it. Yes, Aunt Millie wants you to buy that new Flash or lens.
There are plenty of rebates still available to take advantage of. For example the rebates for the Tamron 16-300mm and the 150-600mm are good until the 7th of January. But just imagine how great these lenses will be to capture the New Years Fireworks above downtown from Dix Hill? Just ponder that a sec.
Get back up to $130 from Tamron. Both Canon and Nikon mounts available.
