iPad 3 and March 7 Madness

March Madness

Today is the third day of March and the madness has begun. Typically, many companies will unvail new gadgets and of course Apple is always at the forefront.  They get your attention every March and not even the death of Steve Jobs is able to stop it.  So what are they up to this March? Well, the iPad3 is coming out on March 7, 2012 and rumor has it that it will be sleeker, lighter, faster than the iPad2.  That means if you have an iPad2 this is your time to sell it quickly if you intend to get the best price possible.  If you were wavering between the iPad2 and the Kindle, this is a no brainer- get the iPad2 for cheap. March is a good time to get the new or get the relatively new at a great price.  That is what  is so great about March madness.

If you are a photographer you are drooling at the mouth right now because Cannon is releasing a the Canon 5D Mark III with an amazing 21mp. Wow! What are you going to do with so many pixels. This is exciting indeed.  Then they are also coming out with a Speedlight Flash 600EX.  That is expected to be an upgrade on the 580EX and that was top dog just a few days ago.  SO what do you do? Think about it, there was nothing wrong with the 580EX flash so if you always wanted a top of the line flash you can buy it now.  I guarantee you will pay far less than what the new 600EX will cost you.  Later on down the road you can always get the latest model.  I hope that make sense to you.

Canon and Apple are not the only one creating March madness, it’s time for the NCAA basketball tournament and this is beyond madness- this is insanity.  They keep doing it year after year thinking it is going to be different, but we love it.  March is a happy month for basketball fans. Oh yes!  do you follow NCAA or college basketball? I love it because when you follow college basketball you are familiar with the players when they get to the NBA.  This year I think Duke, North Carolina, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Clemson, Kentucky are going to be some major players. Watch out! Join the March Madness!

PDN Photo Plus Expo in New York City

CANON BOOTH at PDN PhotoPlus Expo in NYC

Hello world,

The PDN Photo Plus Expo is on at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.  Yesterday was the first day open to the public and it was really well supported.  I can only imagine what today and tomorrow will be like.  Like last year, Nikon, Canon, Sony, Bay Photo, Smug Mug, and Epson are everywhere.  Not to be outdone is Blurb, the book people.  Their setup is like a living room with beautiful white leather sofa.  it is awesome.  When you get tired you can sit and relax at Blurb.  Also, they are giving you a 20% discount on your next book published with them.

Unique Photo out of New jersey was also very big.  So too, Adorama our photo people down the block from superpower     B & H Photo Video.  B&H has shuttle buses for two days since they are closed on Saturday.  The workshops are interesting and informative.  The have brought out the top guns. Gary Fong is there, Manfrotto, Wescott, HP, PNY, Tamron, Sigma, OnOne Software, and many more.   I found a company who makes something similar to a pocket wizard for less than half the price and it worked well when I tried it.

If you are a photographer, or even a tourist with a point and shoot camera, you will love Photo Plus Expo.  It is epic.  Tomorrow is the last day so get there early.  Of course, apart from the general sessions and the booths, thee are seminars, lectures and even portfolio reviews.  If you are serious about photography all roads lead to Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City this weekend.  Get there today or tomorrow.

Enjoy the pictures from the Photo Plus Expo.
