New photography toys on the market

A new lens company named Irix has entered the market with some new ultra-wide perspective lenses.  Available for Canon, Nikon and Pentax mounts, the Irix 11mm f/4 Blackstone lens is a rectilinear wide-angle prime that offers an expansive 126-degree angle of view.  This manual-focus lens is housed in an aluminum-magnesium alloy body with weather sealing at the focus ring and lens mount for durability in outdoor use.  It can focus as close as 10.8 inches and features an engraved focus scale with UV light reactive paint markings.

Len's cleaning kit called LensPen has an expanded set of lens and filter cleaning tools that use a carbon compound to safely remove dust and fingerprints from your optics without the need for fluid cleaning solutions.  These are very popular because they're compact and easy to use.  The DSLR Pro Kit includes the Original LensPen for your lenses, the FilterKlear pen for filters and the MicroPro for your camera's viewfinder, all in a microfiber pouch that is useful, too, for cleaning your camera's LCD, smartphone screens and more.

Framed on Gitzo is a Gimbal Head that is crafted for wildlife photographers and balances heavy equipment perfectly and provides smooth movement of the head for convenient handling throughout the shoot.

Create Midday Magic with the Lee Filters Super Stopper.  This is a 15-stop glass neutral-density filter that allows you to dramtically cut the light reaching your sensor to enable creative techniques such as long exposures to blur moving water or to use larger apertures than would otherwise be possible.  It's available for Lee 100mm, Seven5 and SW-150 filter systems.

Achieve Perfect White Balance with the ExpoDisc.  Speed up your post-processing workflow by eliminating the need to correct white balance in software with the ExpoDisc 2.0  Great for both stills and video work, it attaches to your lens like a filter and allows you to set a precise custom white balance for the ambient light.  It can also be used to meter for an 18-percent incident exposure and to map dust on your sensor in a few simple steps.
