New lenses now available for checkout!

New glass for new photographs…

lenses

MICA Photo is pleased to announce several new lens purchases that we now have available for you to check out from the Photo Crib. Above you will see that we now have from Nikon three new prime lenses: a 20mm f/2.8, a 35mm f/1.8, and an 85mm f/1.4. These new lenses are especially good for photographing in low-light situations, and/or for obtaining a shallow depth of field.

We also have several new lenses for our Sony cameras as well. Pictured above, you will see the wide 16-35mm zoom lens, the wide 28mm f/2.0, and the “standard” 50mm f/1.8. We have two of the 50mm lenses which will also work great for shooting video.

And last, but not least, we have a new Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens for the new Canon 6D camera we just purchased. This lens is great in low-light too, and is a fantastic lens for video as well.  So come by the Photo Crib and see all the new things we have for you to borrow. New equipment can help you to see in a whole new way, and it’s also a great opportunity to try out equipment that you may want to have for your own in the future.

New lighting possibilities…

New flash units available for check-out!

We have some new lighting to tell you about…

First, we have created six small flash kits for you to borrow that are extremely useful for light-weight, on-the-go, shooting situations. Each kit contains a flash with a built-in infra-red slave trigger, a remote controlled radio flash trigger & receiver, light stand with grounding spikes, umbrella, umbrella/flash holder,  mini gels, bounce flash attachment, and even a removable grid spot for controlling the light beam.  This versatile kit comes contained in a single, over-the shoulder bag that weighs only a couple of pounds!

Second, we have purchased another new Dynalite Baja Strobe kit. This adds to the two other Baja kits we currently have for loaner use. The Baja Kit is a powerful, versatile, portable flash kit with two 400 Watt strobe heads in each kit. These versatile kits are AC/DC compatible and are great for location shooting where a power outlet is not an option. The heads have a small modeling light, and they can be discharged using a remote trigger. Each head has a detachable reflector that can accommodate a set of included grid spots. All kits come with an instruction guide.

We also received a donated Nikon SB-24 Speedlight flash. This flash unit expands our inventory of off-camera flashes, and is very easy to use in the “manual” mode. So come by, and get all “FLASHY”!

New cameras available in the Photo Crib

Several new cameras are now available to borrow from the Crib…

new-cameras

We wanted to let you all know that we have some “new” 35mm cameras, as well as a brand new “full-frame” digital camera available for check-out at the Photo Crib. The 35 mm cameras are “new to us”, and expand our choices for quality 35mm cameras.

The “NEW” camera we are excited about is the new Canon 6-D full frame digital camera with a 24-105mm f/4 zoom lens. With the addition of this camera body, we now offer full-frame digital shooting options on the Nikon, Sony, and now the Canon camera systems. This new Canon camera does still imagery as well as hi-res video. It features a 20.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor, a 4.5 fps shooting rate at full resolution, and is able to record full HD 1080p video at 30 fps.

We also have recently purchased a “fast” prime lens for this camera…a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens. This lens is great for shooting in low-light situations, and works great for video too. Please stop by the Photo Crib to get your hands on these great new additions to our loaner inventory. Keep your eyes on the blog for more new equipment announcements…!
