(Photo Plus Expo at Javits Center, NYC)
This episode, Antonio visits the Photo Plus Expo in NYC and gives a small report from the field. The PPE is one of the largest photography trade shows in the US and has always taken place in NYC in late October. Many photography-related companies attend to show off new camera gear and accessories and so much more. It’s a great event to attend to take seminars, meet other photographers, play with new stuff and just recharge your photographic juices. Antonio traveled the show floor and found some neat gadgets to share from companies you probably haven’t heard of. In his field report (his first for this podcast), he interviews the folks at Beastgrip, iBlazr and MIOPS. Beastgrip makes a cage/grip for your smartphone, allowing you to attach a myriad of accessories which increases the photographic functionality of your smartphone. iBlazr makes a small, nifty Bluetooth-enabled flash also for your smartphone, or DSLR. MIOPS created a remote trigger for your camera that can be activated by lightning, sound, or even a laser beam.
