PASM Workshop is now carrying a number of photography accessories for photop enthusiast. If you want to order, send your email, contacts number and number of quantities needed to sales@pasm-workshop.com.

RPS Studio Speedlite Accessory Kit (HK$495) is designed to fit most popular speedlites on the market today. The kit allows photographers to improve the quality of the light from small flash units.

The RPS Studio Speedlite Accessory Kit features grid spots for creating dramatic effects. Also included is a reversible silver/white bounce reflector, and a red gel filter (Additional gel filters may be purchased). All of these accessories are mounted to a speedlite via the included mounting frame that attaches to all speedlites via hook and loop fasteners which are included.

The mounting frame has adjustable click stops to keep it at the desired angle for either bounce flash or to position a filter and/or a honeycomb grid. You can also quickly move the grid or filter out of the way for standard flash photos. The mounting frame folds up flat for easy storage.

Consisting of a mounting frame, three honeycomb grid spots (30°, 40°, and 50°), a silver/white reversible bounce reflector and a red filter, the Dot Line RPS Studio Speedlite Accessory Kit enables you to better control the spill rate and reflective qualities of your on-camera flash.

For Glare Free LCD screen viewing… Checking your histogram, composition and focus outdoors is easy with Hoodman’s HoodLoupe. HoodLoupe is worn around your neck just like a normal loupe. When it is time to review your shot; bring Hoodloupe up to your image and place your eye up to the eye cup for complete glare free viewing. HoodLoupe has a +-3 diopter to accommodate those with less than perfect vision. HoodLoupe adjusts focus just like a binocular eye piece… you turn the eye piece in or out to set for your vision. HoodLoupe’s precise German glass optics give you a 1 to 1 ratio for true LCD screen viewing. Each HoodLoupe is encased in a user friendly rubber for comfort and protection from bumps that will occur throughout your shoot. Comfortable lanyard and compact protective storage case included. Fits up to 3.0 inch LCD screens.

Press pic to hop over to ModoSteady 585's product page

Okay, you probably have a Sony NEX-5 like I do, or the new lines of DSLR capable of shooting Full HD video like the Sony A33, A55, Nikon D3100 or Canon EOS 550D and you like me are probably looking for some sort of stabilization accessories so to enable you to shoot smoother video.

Of course one can go the professional way with systems like Redrock Nano (US$387.50 and up), Steadicam Merlin (US$849), Zacuto Target Shooter (US$475) and the list goes on and on, but these close to professional steady systems do cost a fortune. One alternative I found over the weekend, is this ModoSteady585 from Manfrotto launched way back in 2007, some three years ago.

Originally designed for small video camcorders, the ModoSteady 585 can carry loads up to 750g or 1.7lb and the newer line of video DSLR fits just right in. The ModoSteady 585 cost around HK$790 (US$100) and it sure does the job albeit mixed reviews since it was introduced. I tried it out with my Sony NEX-5 and it just fits perfectly although the quick release plate is bit wide for the slim body of the NEX5 where the circular plate sticks out on both the front and rear sides of the camera. There are tons of video on the ModoSteady 585 on YouTube, check it out for yourself and see if this works for you. It works for me.

Some pics of the ModoSteady 585 after the jump.

David Hobby, the founder of Strobist (http://www.strobist.blogspot.com/), gave us exclusive permission to screen part of his 10-hour long Strobist Lighting Seminar DVD (http://strobist.blogspot.com/2008/05/now-available-strobist-lighting-dvds.html).

In this screening event, we will be screening the part on the Conference Room Headshot which is recommended by David Hobby for this screening. According to David, “that was designed as a progression through several basic techniques, and is a pretty good self-contained module”.

At the screening, there will be a lucky draw where we will be giving away Rosco Cinegel Swatchbooks (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/45184-REG/Rosco_950SBCNG0103_Cinegel_Swatchbook.html) and Rosco Strobist Gel Pack (http://www.rosco.com/us/video/strobist.asp?CFID=138423&CFTOKEN=80974460). These gel packs are color gels specially for shoe-mount flashguns.

In addition, Victor will also be displaying his collection on some of the Strobist equipment he acquired in the past years which includes products from HonlPhoto (http://www.honlphoto.com); Lumiquest (http://www.lumiquest.com/)…. etc.
