A Preview Of Aquatech’s New Oli Cape


Our rep was in yesterday with one of Aquatech’s new Oli rain capes, so, I grabbed my trusty phone and Emily, our resident nervous web minion, and we got some footage of thing for you to watch while we wait on the info needed to get it live on our site. It’s pretty cool stuff, and the video is as delightfully awful and awkward as long-time viewers know to expect, so, give it a spin, yeah?

Roberts Raw Footage Returns(ish)


It’s been a while since we rocked a Raw Footage out at ya, but we’re remedying that right now, you see. Mind you, we actually shot this a month or two back and just forgot about it (oops!) in a bunch of office shuffles we’ve had recently later. But, don’t take that as a slight to the product in it, the Olympus XZ-1 is a fine little camera with surprisingly good image files and a pretty phenomenal f1.8 aperture lens. But, I can tell you more in talky form below.

Raw Footage and the Sony NEX-5


So, remember that thing, that system that Sony announced recently? You know? yeah? What was it, interchangeable lens compact, tiny body, Alpha sensor, new “E” mount lenses? Ringing any bell? No?

Well, then you probably have no idea why all the hush-hush cloak-and-dagger in this video. Oh well, you should watch it anyway.

And learn.

Executive Panther out.

Raw Footage and the ThinkTank Retrospective 30


While I’m busy working on the new look for Roberts Raw, how about some Friday distractions in the form of absolutely silly videos about an absolutely not-silly product: the ThinkTank Photo Retrospective 30 messenger bags.

These bags are big and roomy and, well, why don’t you just watch?

And, if our take’s not enough, don’t forget Jared “The Fro” Polin over at Fro Knows Photo, whose take on theRetrospective 30 we’ve politely YouTube ninja’ed below for your viewing enjoyment.

Raw Footage and the Induro 5-Way Head


Well, it’s been a while, but we’re back with a new episode Roberts Raw Footage, now with considerably more nonsense and captions. We like captios.

Up on the block is a quick video for the new Induro 5-Way head, which features the usual 3 ways, a nodal adjustment set, and some other nice touches that we’ll leave to the video. I’m a huge fan of Induro equipment myself, so this exciting.

There’s also some other MAC Group stuff at the end, a promo from X-Rite, and an overview of a shiny new Skooba accessory.

The Voice of Raw Returns, 40% More Rambling Guaranteed


So, the last couple months were a bit rough around here, and I didn’t have time to pull Nick away from his other duties long enough for us to cut our usual Voice of Raw podcasts. But, it’s the post-Christmas lull right now and we’ve missed the sounds of of our voices as we obstensibly tell you what’s up in the camera world.

So, we’re back…TA-DA!
