Lighting / New LumoPro flash is nearly here!
« on: July 08, 2013, 12:44:40 PM »
I only know of one place that is selling this in the USA.  Pre-orders are being accepted with shipments starting on July 16th.

http://mpex.com/lumopro-lp180-quad-sync-manual-flash.html

Loved the previous incarnation, the LP160.  This LP-180 has some interesting new features; I really like the ability to gel the flash without resorting to velcro.  Being able to directly screw it into a light stand and plug it into an external battery pack are really nice touches as well.

Just wanted to bring this flash to the community's attention. This brand has been the "go-to" for Strobists who prefer manual over TTL until it was discontinued.

Disclaimer: I do not work for nor profit from MPEX in any way.  I just cannot find this flash on the internet anywhere else for sale.  Got an email from MPEX and thought there could be a few of us out there in need of a quality, manual flash.

Saw this deal mentioned over on Ken Rockwell's site.  At Adorama, the 800mm super lens is available for a mere $13,249 which is the same as places like Amazon but Adorama is throwing into the deal a $1000 gift card and a $10 software package.

So, Neuroanatomist, have you got your 800mm yet?  ;D

The second unit has more ports but both should be able to do accurate colors.  I know this is not Canon or directly a camera item, but I'm sure there are some out there who could use one of these beasts with their digital darkroom.

Sorry if inappropriate but this got me laughing out loud and thought a few here may also enjoy the humor.
