Chris Klapheke from Outdoor Photo Gear (www.outdoorphotogear.com) to tell us about some of the new photo items he saw at the recent Photokina show in Germany and to give our viewers an early look at the Black Friday sales coming up Thanksgiving weekend.
In the news, Brikk releases a special gold plated Nikon if you have $43,000 you can spare, Think Tank has announced new bags and packs for mirrorless cameras, news from the trade show at Japan's Display Innovations hints at new high end LCD displays, Drift has released a new smaller sports camera called Stealth 2.
Also, our congratulations go out to Rob Daugherty, The Vest Guy, whose image of a grizzly bear was chosen for Your Best Shot by National Geographic.
Finally, on a sad note, David Stoecklein passed away this past weekend. David was the keynote speaker at the Black Hills Shootout four years ago.
Be sure to go to www.outdoorphotogear.com for the Black Friday specials running all weekend and let them know you heard about it on The Fotobug podcast!
