Pink Shutter Photobooths

Tom Kanemoto and Lance Yabut, Co-Founders of Pink Shutter Photobooths, recently went on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank to seek financing and a partnership with the sharks.  They initially were seeking $300K for 10% of their company.

Damon had a problem with the $100K salaries.  Others thought it was simply a bad deal.

When it went down to Barbara, she thought the evaluation was way high and then offered $300K for 33% and a $100K salary.  Mark Cuban decided to jump back into the tank.

Tom and Lance counter offered $300K for 25% to both remaining sharks.   When Mark dropped out for the second time, the guys decided to accept Barbara’s $300K deal for a $100K salary and 33% of the company.

Congratulations to Pink Shutter Photobooths on the new partnership!  Here’s their Facebook page.

PocketWizard PlusX

pocketwizard plusXPocket Wizard released it’s newest transceiver this week.  It’s listed price on B&H Photo is $99!  The PlusX is a great way to get into the Pocket Wizard family of transmitters.

Here’s the information listed on the Pocket Wizard website:

FULL FEATURE DESCRIPTIONS:

10 Standard Channels

With the PlusX’s 10 Standard Channels you can work in your own “zone.” Claim your own channel for exclusive triggering when working with other photographers at crowded events.  Use different channels for different setups or looks and select them simply and intuitively with the turn of a dial. And these 10 channels are compatible with every PocketWizard ever made* set to Standard Channels 1 – 10. (* radios of the same frequency)

Backlit Channel Dial
Setting channels is as easy as turning a dial. The backlit channel dial clearly displays the set channel and because the backlight consumes so little power, it stays on all the time for convenience.

Internal Antenna
The PlusX features a durable, side profile design with an unobtrusive, internal antenna minimizing visual obstruction between you and your subject. By utilizing an internal antenna, there’s no chance to kink or break it when on location. The total height of the transceiver and antenna is less than 4.2 inches, and it weighs only 4 ounces, including batteries.

Easily Connected / Cable Port
On your camera, the PlusX slides into the hot shoe with no cables required.  For your remotes, it features one do-it-all miniphone (3.5mm or 1/8”) sync port. The miniphone connector is much more reliable than a PC connection and every PlusX comes complete with a miniphone-to-miniphone cable, a miniphone-to-phono (1/4″ or 6.3mm) adapter for triggering the majority of modern flashes, and a miniphone to locking PC cable for triggering some remote speedlights or for using your PlusX on-camera when you can’t put it in a hot shoe.  Other miniphone connector cables are available for major brands of lighting equipment in a variety of lengths. Dedicated remote camera triggering cables are also available for popular camera systems.

Auto-Sensing Transceiver 
With our patented Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology, the PlusX Transceiver is one smart radio. The PlusX will instantly and intelligently switch between transmitter and receiver modes keeping setup as simple as possible. The PlusX may be set to Transmit (Tx) only when needed.

Auto-Relay Mode
Our Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology lets you trigger a remote camera in sync with remote flashes using only 3 PocketWizard radios: the one in your hands, a PlusX cabled to your remote camera, and the one connected to your remote flash. The PlusX cabled to your remote camera will receive a radio signal and trigger the camera’s motor drive, then switch to transmit mode and trigger your PocketWizard-connected remote flashes on the next channel up, all automatically.  Start the sequence by simply pressing the TEST button of any PocketWizard transmitter in your hands. Remote cameras require motor drive cables. Find the correct cable for your gear using the PocketWizard Cable Finder.

Status Indicator/Battery Life Indicator
The PlusX features a tri-color LED status indicator that serves two functions.  When the PlusX sends or receives a triggering signal, the LED will glow red.  During normal operation, the indicator will blink a single green blink meaning it is operating normally and the battery life is above 50%.  It will blink a double amber blink when the battery is below 50% but above 25% and it will blink three red blinks when the battery life is below 25% and it’s crucial to replace the batteries.

Transmit Only Mode
There are times when you only want your radio to transmit, usually when two or more photographers are sharing a set of lights.  By enabling transmit only mode, you disable the receive and auto-relay functions to make sure all your radio is doing is transmitting.

Range and Reliability
PocketWizard Plus radios are known for their range and reliability.  Although the PlusX costs less than other PocketWizard radios, you still get the range and reliability you’d expect.

Sync Speed
Ultra-fast microprocessors allow for reliable sync speeds of 1/250 for focal plane shutters and 1/500 for leaf shutters.

PocketWizard Compatible

The PlusX is compatible with all PocketWizard transmitters and receivers including PocketWizard-enabled photo gear from Profoto, Dynalite, Norman, Photogenic and Sekonic light meters.  The PocketWizard Wireless System allows for total flexibility with whatever lights or cameras you may be working with.

Made in the USA
Like almost all PocketWizard radios, the PlusX is made in the USA.  We keep production close to ensure the highest quality.
