Used Sony Alphas

This week has been a great week for used gear.  Earlier this week we took in a big lot of Canon gear with plenty left to check out.  Today we aquired a few Sony alpha mirror less cameras.  The Sony A7s full frame 12mp camera is going for $1850

New low-cost LED light set from Savage

New to the store is a 2-light LED kit from Savage for only $139.00! In the box you’ll find two 250w LED’s with mounts, stands, and umbrellas- all in a small carrying case. A perfect starter light set for portraits or small products.

LEDs provide daylight-balanced, continuous light without getting hot like incandescent photofloods or halogen bulbs. The umbrellas can either be reflective or shoot-thru, but be advised they’re not the brightest bulbs we’ve ever seen. If you can crank your camera’s ISO up into the stratosphere you can use these just fine.

This portrait of Shelley was shot with A Canon T5i & 18-55 kit lens at ISO 1600, 1/125 @ f5.6. One LED was positioned just to the right of camera with a shoot-thru umbrella, while the 2nd LED was behind and to Shelley’s left in a reflective umbrella, spilling onto the background and Shelley’s shoulder.

With such a small, lightweight, cost effective kit and today’s high-ISO cameras you can set up a small headshot studio just about anywhere.

Canon 5Ds bodies are in stock

Your need for 50 megapixels can now be full filled.  The 5Ds is in stock and priced at $3699.99.  DETAIL, that is all that you will be seeing.  Nothing else on the planet, besides larger format cameras will give you what you have been missing in life. Word to the wise, on the way home go pick up a few 4TB drives for your computer.   On average the Large RAW is 100Mb each, that makes your Apple music collection look like small potatoes.
