Tiffen ImageMakers are scheduled to appear, along with other professional photographers, giving hands-on product demonstrations and presentations.   • Steadicam Smoothee for iPhone 5: Combining the iPhone 5’s much improved camera optics with the Steadicam Smoothee technology akin to the professional $60,000 rigs used in Hollywood, users can shoot smooth high-quality footage right from their iPhone. Also on display from the Steadicam Smoothee family will be the Smoothee for the Apple® iPod touch, iPhone 3 and 4/4s, and GoPro HERO2® and the new GoPro HERO3®.   • Next Generation Domke Camera Bags and Gear: For over thirty years, photographers from amateurs to pros have relied on the quality and reliability of Domke’s weather-tough camera bags, accessories and utility clothing. Tiffen’s Next Generation Domke line keeps the core Domke DNA and personality, expanding upon the line to offer the new Journalist, Metropolitan, Visionary and Adventurer series. Now with the latest PocketFlex™ and GearProtex™ technology to offer the most advanced customization capabilities, Domke bags can be ultra-personalized to fit every shooter.   • Lowel Lighting: The completely portable Lowel GL-1 Power LED lets shooters move freely, focusing the light source selectively using the warm, flattering nature of the tungsten color as key, fill or accent. With the Lowel Blender 3-Light Kit, shooters can set each light output to tungsten color, or daylight, or any blend of the two for the classic three-light interview. Lowel Prime Power LEDs are brighter than many similarly sized production LEDs, with a wider, more usable 50-degree beam angle. Lowel Prime LEDs are fully DMX addressable and dimmable, and available in dedicated high CRI daylight and tungsten color models.   • Tiffen Optical Filters Featuring the Variable ND: Tiffen filters are manufactured using the company’s award-winning ColorCore™ technology, which enables Tiffen to control the color and density of its filters with greater accuracy than typical dyed-in-the-mass filters. The Variable ND filter is a versatile and flexible filter that offers users the convenience of leveraging seven Neutral Density filters in one, with 8 true stops.   • Tiffen Dfx 3.0: Simulating 2,000+ popular award-winning Tiffen glass filters, specialized lenses, optical lab processes, film grain, exacting color correction, plus natural light and photographic effects, the Tiffen Dfx digital filter suite is the definitive set of digital optical filters for both amateur and professional photographers and video enthusiasts worldwide.   • Davis & Sanford Magnum, Artisan and Traverse Tripod Lines: A must-have tripod for the traveling photographer, the Davis & Sanford Traverse Tripod line offers compact, lightweight and versatile tripods that can be transported almost anywhere, even under the seat of an airplane. Ideal for the DSLR shooter, the Davis & Sanford Magnum XG13 tripod with FX 13 Head is the perfect combination of solid lightweight tripod legs and a very attractive multi-functional photo/video head. Light, strong and compact, the new Artisan Tripod Series offers tremendous versatility for nature and sports shooters on the go. With a maximum working height of 60 inches, Artisan Tripods have one of the highest working heights in its class.   • Genustech Camera Accessories: Ideal for enthusiast to the professional, Genustech camera accessories offer a wide range of digital imaging accessories including matte boxes, 3D camera rigs, ND fader filters, camera adaptor plates and rod supports, shoulder mount kits, cheeseplates and accessories, and cages and supports.   • Listec: On display at CES, the new Promptware PW-04 and PW-10 mini teleprompter products turn your smartphone, iPod touch, tablet and similar devices into a professional teleprompter.
