Since Jim is traveling (again!) - no photo news for this podcast, but we will be back with updated news for the next podcast!
The Neewer 31.5" motorized slider is one of the latest among the "bargain" sliders for video and time-lapse. However, there doesn't appear to be much compromise in quality featuring aluminum mount and carbon fiber rails. Jim and Fred offer a first look at this new slider and promise to due a full feature review later - along with a YouTube post of how to assemble and set the time-lapse settings.

In recent photograph news, Parrot confirmed they are leaving the toy drone market. A UK photographer has turned a shipping camera into a giant camera! LAANC is now available in the US to allow drone pilots to more easily get permission to fly in previously restricted areas. Wacom Tablet has released a new Cintiq that might be more affordable ($1200). VESA has released new details of the next DisplayPort which can handle video up to 16k. Topaz has released Studio 2 - which might be a free upgrade for current users.
A few episodes back, Jim and Fred posted a how-to to photograph a car and used speedlights fired remotely. Viewers have asked just how to fire a strobe remotely, so in today's podcast, The Fotobug guys discuss techniques to do just that! If you have questions, or suggestions, be sure to leave them in the comments and please subscribe to The Fotobug YouTube Channel!
The Black Hills Photo Shootout is around the corner, last weekend in September and is now taking registrations for the weekend sessions. Check out the podcast for information on how to register and watch the newly released Fotobug promo video for the event!
