Two "Must Have" Speedlite Products shown at Imaging USA

Copyright-2010- Dutra

This year's Imaging USA show found iDC's owner Bruce Dorn giving a lighting presentation as well as "live" speedlite demonstrations in the Canon Booth on the show floor. Bruce is always happy to share his lighting philosophy with interested photographers. As you might suspect, Bruce uses products that he personally designs in order to achieve simple solutions to common lighting challenges.  The speedlite wall mounting plate Bruce demonstrated is called the “Plastic Slipper” and the umbrella speedlite mounting product is the “Triple Threat”.
