Raymond Ser over at Gear Diary posted up his first part of the review on the all new Olympus E-P1 Digital Pen this week. As Raymond puts it, the review is more from an amateur perspective which I found to be very easy to read (lacks the camera jargon). That coupled with some really nice shots of the Olympus E-P1 Digital Pen, definitely a good review on the camera. Check out his review here. Can’t wait for the second part.

For those interested to know, the street price of the Olympus E-P1 Digital Pen in Hong Kong is around HK$6,880 (US$882).

Vernissage: 5 September 2009, 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Exhibition Continues: 6 September 2009 – 21 September 2009

Venue: Main Gallery, 21-31 Old Bailey Street, Central, Hong Kong

Schoeni Art Gallery is proud to present art photos by Karl Lagerfeld in collaboration with Baystar Hong Kong Photo Production. The charity exhibition will feature a limited collection of 45 art photos produced by Karl Lagerfeld and Adnan Taletovich – a professional fashion model and photographer – for the very first time in Hong Kong and Asia. Adnan Taletovich has collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld in numerous photo shoots for Karl Lagerfeld’s men’s clothing campaign and “Photo KL” perfume. This rare photograph collection not only features familiar faces of world renowned models such as Linda Evangelista, Helena Christensen and Patricia Velasquez, but also reflects the artistic style and mastery of a great designer and artist – Karl Lagerfeld.

Many of the images in the collection were shot at Karl Lagerfeld’s residences in Paris and Monte Carlo, in the 1990’s. The images embrace an extravagant mystery quality with ultimate elegance and sophistication, which echoes the power and poise so distinctive of Karl. In one of the street scenes work, the production team managed to get a street closed for shooting in the Le Marais district in Paris. The almost theatrical scene aims to relive 19th century with Kristen McMenamy dressed in the typical androgynous style. A few of the works in the collection also reveal off-scene jovial moments captured through the eyes of Karl Lagerfeld, including one with Helena Christensen playfully pulling off Adnan Taletovich’s towel.

Interfit

Been looking at this Interfit STR102 Mini Beauty Dish Reflector for quite some time and finally found the knock-off at Ying Kee in Shamshuipo for HK$168. As for the results, well not bad for a mini-dish, best if added off-camera above subject tilting down aiming at subject but have to be real close for a tight portrait, otherwise, you wouldn’t see much effect.

Once again, Mark Wallace over at SnapFactory got yet another great tutorial vid on PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 and high speed sync. So far, Pocket Wizard only have the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 out for the Canon (HK availability soon).  Nikon will be shipping later this Fall and still no words on Sony.
