Why Professional photo (Why Profoto…)

Wow, I have always loved the best gear, so Profoto was a no trainer. I have tried all the others but nothing is as robust and pretty as Profoto. Oh yes looks are important too. I like to buy the best because I want to know my lights will work when they have to, if I have a 5 minute window with a busy famous person I want to concentrate on my images not my gear.

I expect things to work always and that’s what Profoto gives me… reliability. I started with Profoto over 15 years ago, I bought two

Tele Ace

Fujifilm builds out its zoom catalog.

In April, 2013, this 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 OIS zoom ($699, street) joined the Fujinon 18-55mm f/2.8-4 zoom ($699, street) to round out a relatively fast and useful XF series optical system for Fujifilm’s impressive X-series of ILCs . How good is it?

An 84-305mm full frame equivalent, the 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 includes a built-in stabilizer, two ED and one Super ED elements for controlling chromatic aberration, and has a unique soft-sided lens pouch that doubles as a cleaning cloth.

The 55-200mm is strikingly plain-Jane, with no subject distance scale, ornamental brand markings, or even f-stop numerals

Tester’s notes

Skids. Drifts. Oversteer. Churlish, childish stuff that is inefficient, irresponsible, wears through tyres and slows cars down. All true. A colleague came back to the office the other day and reported that an industry test driver had told him one of the “problems” with car journalists is their obsession with going sideways. True, too, perhaps.

This driver, and the company he works for, likes cars that go fast. Flipping fast. If there’s too much lateral slip, too much looking out of the side window, too much smoking of tyre, with knuckles visible through the windscreen to amply demonstrate

ONE Jerk for all occasions.

It is widely believed that jerkbaits can be used only in the spring, as well as in shallow waters to catch pike, zander and perch. David

Hagemayster considers it a great mistake.

Using little tricks, fishing guide uses jerks and summer catchability places.

I rarely meet in the waters anglers who catch predatory fish on jerkbaits. On the one hand, this can be explained by the high cost of such baits, on the other hand — the false understanding that jerks the spring can successfully catch and in the rest of the year they can be fished a shallow
