Fred and Jim welcome back Maurice Ribble to show off his Air Flash.  The Air Flash is an extremely fast strobe unit that can freeze bullets in mid-flight. Maurice has built a number of units in hopes of selling them, but is currently looking for a liability insurance company to underwrite insurance on the unit due to the high voltage.  Maurice talks about the new unit and shows off some images he recently made with the flash.



Maurice is also the engineer behind The Camera Axe which can be used to trigger based upon events and triggers.  Maurice's website is www.cameraaxe.com.

In the news, the hack on Adobe's Creative Cloud effects 38 million users, Canon releases a firmware update for the Canon 5D MK III, the ION is a new sports camera, and OnOne Software is running a public beta program for their Photo Suite.
