Gear That Works – ThinkTank Comes Up With Smart Gear, At The Right Price

Those guys in black are doing it one more time, with gear for those of us that may shoot on location. Or out of the studio. Or anywhere you can set up your computer.

This is the Pixel SunScreen V2. Folding light and flat as a round reflector, this pop up workspace has been designed just right.

Here is how we used it: did a location shoot in a backyard, MacBookPro set up with Seagate external drive, Lexar UDMA firewire card reader, broadband card. We could have added more stuff, (mirror back-up HD, shot list, pens, penlight) but this has been a simple set-up, working quite well for us. And when it came time to fold it up the thumb illustrations worked perfectly.

And for about $70 USD, this is a total winner. Order through this link and you’ll also get a free ThinkTank bag worth over $30. Sweet.

There is another piece of gear we have been looking for that meets real world requirements.
We’re talking about the best flash bracket out there. After disappointments with a few, we may have found the best unit out there. Only have done a few shoots with it, but loving life. No re-tightening, smooth operation, compact for travel. REALLY compact
Coming soon!
