The loading bar is a signal to many of us to take care of those little things- like making a cup of coffee, taking that bathroom break or just petting the dog. We have been told that Fiber’s seemingly instant connections have taken away that valuable time. So today we are introducing Dial-Up Mode to slow your Fiber speeds down. Relax to your 56k connection and get those precious moments back.

From PBS.org:
"After two years of extensive upgrades, the Large Hadron Collider was warming up on March 21 for another round of experiments when a circuit controlling one of its massive magnets shorted out. Dismayed, scientists began repairing the equipment, hoping for a short delay. Just yesterday, CERN announced that the LHC could restart within days.
 
Then the unexpected happened. As physicists were testing the repairs by zipping a few spare protons around the 17 mile loop, the CMS detector picked up something unusual. The team feverishly pored over the data, and ultimately came to an unlikely conclusion—in their tests, they had accidentally created a rainbow universe.
 
'Rainbow universes were pure speculation before this happened,' said Jessica Czerniski, the CERN physicist who was overseeing the warm-up procedures. 'We had some solid math backing us up, of course, but none of us ever dreamed we would live to see this day.'"

Flashpoint PolarLight LED Lights
From Adorama:
 
April 1, 2015 – After months of research Flashpoint has developed the first ever on and off camera LED light series especially designed for cinema cameras with 4K recording.
 
Our new lights have a polarizing filter which spreads the rays for optimal 4K capture by dispersing the light in a "slower" way and matching the sensitive sensors that 4K cameras have. Available as a standard LED light or with adjustable color temperature, and as an on-camera unit (300 diodes) or an off-camera panel (1350 diodes).
 
The on-camera unit features a universal battery design, silent vented cooling, and up to 3 hours battery life. The off-camera panel can use AC power or V-mount batteries, and is the brightest unit of its kind on the market, even with the polarizing filter.
 
Flashpoint PolarLight 4K LED (Color Temperature Adjustable or Regular)
 
  • On-Camera – $349
  • Light Panel – $1,200
Product Highlights
 
  • Industry changing breakthrough technology
  • Exceptional brightness (1000lux /6150lux)
  • Vented cooling for silence
  • Color temperature adjustable
  • 6 stops stepless power control
  • Power source flexibility
  • Battery life readout
  • Panels can be combined to create large arrays
  • 1 year USA warranty
Pre-orders coming soon! Projected shipping time is beginning of September 2015.

Photoflex Closing its Doors
Popular lighting and accessory manufacturer Photoflex has announced via its homepage that it is closing its doors after 30 years in the industry.
 
I own a Photoflex Umbrella with Adjustable Frame and love it; I'm sad to see them go. Hopefully they will reconsider their hasty decision to close and continue to bring us high quality, innovative products as the first rays of sunlight dance on the horizon tomorrow. [Sean]
 
Update: Photoflex has indeed gone out of business. This is not an April Fool's Day joke.
