Welcome to the Fotobug Podcast number 113! Photokina is now underway and we expect lots of announcement of new products over the coming weeks. Canon has released the upgrade to the 7D, the 7D Mark II and Nikon has just released the new D750 full frame DSLR. Jim and Fred discuss these as well as the new Western Digital My Passport portable drive with an SD card reader built in. Canon is also celebrating their 70th anniversary and Tamron has announced a 15-30mm f/2.8 zoom for full frame cameras.
Fred and Jim continue testing the NeroTrigger, this time testing the sound trigger. The setup included firing a pellet gun at various objects after dialing in the proper delay (actually it was discovered no delay was the setting that worked best). Several balloons and crackers sacrificed themselves for this test! The Nerotrigger is connected directly to the flash and you must have a darkened space in order to capture high speed flash images. If you try this yourself, please keep safety in mind and be careful with the pellet gun - you could put your eye out :) !
