The Awesome Stuff at PMA
I love the DIY Photography blog, mostly because it's usually got great tips on hacks and homemade devices to make taking pictures better and more fun. But today they've got on their extra-fun hat, and they're behaving more like my favorite fun photo site, Photojojo. That's where I go to buy totally unique, fun and funny photo accessories. The DIY gang just returned from the PMA show (where all the newest and bestest photo stuff is announced) to compile a list of favorite items from the show floor. These are the types of projects that you wouldn't be surprised to learn were funded by Kickstarter, or where the exhibition booths are manned by the actual inventors of the products on display. There's some pretty cool stuff in here—from miniature rolling dollies for video to my personal favorite, the Swivl, which is a remote controlled camera operator. Don't worry photographers, it's not all about video. Take a look and see what you can expect to find on the shelves of your favorite photo retailers in the coming months—if you're lucky.
