Jim and Fred's guest this episode is Greg Horvath, from Alpine Labs.  Greg is part of the Alpine Labs team that is developing the next generation of the Radian Time Lapse device.  The Radian 2 is an updated version of the original Radian that allows the photographer to program the device from an android or IOS tablet or phone, and will then control a camera as well as tilt or rotate or even drive a slider!  The Radian 2 is the most recent Kickstarter project from Alpine and is expected to be released this fall, possibly in September.  The original Radian and Michron timelapse controllers are now available on the Alpine website at http://alpinelaboratories.com and are also available from leading photo retailers and Amazon.  We will be following up with Greg after the new system has been released which promises blue tooth connectivity and more!
