I had a friend ask me if Photoinduced was still going since he only accessed it through the email blasts.
Figuring it all out.
So in the interest of time:

Enter Logistics 30
Throw in your strobe heads, packs, bodies, lenses, cables, and if you are a good packer, some Nano lightstands, umbrellas, and reflector holders.
I’ve used a similar unit like this, and go in most gear needed for a location shoot. Keep your softboxes, tripod, etc. on the outside.
Sometimes one bag can be too heavy. Pack accordingly.
Then they went real small in answer to the burgeoning market of 4/3rd’s or mirrorless cameras.
I love this series. Walking in NYC with a good compliment of lenses in a small footprint bag, works like crazy.

Next up is a cool little travel product.
It’s the Kingston MobileLite Wireless Flash Reader
. When your smartphone or tablet seem like it is at or near capacity, after downloading amazing apps, or shooting like there is no tomorrow. Or even downloaded some great, but long content.
Transfer your favorite movies to media cards or USB drives and carry a whole library with you when you travel.
Or, go in reverse and grab content off of your mobile device to a card or USB flash drive.
Shoot away with your prosumer camera, using SD cards and share on a tablet or social media, easily.
Multiple people can watch the same content, using the app.
Gives you a dedicated wi-fi network, and card reader.
You can use this tiny block to read SD and Micro-SD cards, and with an app installed, you can choose what content to look at, edit etc.
No need to feel bad about not getting a larger capacity photo/tablet.
It’s all about the media cards.
Shoot away with your prosumer camera, using SD cards, and share on a tablet or social media, easily.
After using this for a few weeks, we can confirm that it does all that it says it does. The larger single shot files took longer to upload, but the movies, once set for streaming gave a great watching experience.
Very cool all-in-one device.
