Rangefinder Technical Editor John Rettie is at WPPI 2013 and yesterday attended Launch Pad, where attendees got a sneak peek at some of the products being displayed at the trade show in Las Vegas. While many exhibitors displayed their latest wares, two new product lines particularly caught his eye.

One is the LED lighting gear from Fiilex. Their two new arrays provide full-spectrum color tuning so they can be matched to any light. He also took note of the Sanho iUSBportCamera.  As its name suggests, it is a device that can be used with a Canon or Nikon DSLR to wirelessly transmit photos to an external device such as a iPhone or iPad for viewing images. It can also capture JPEG images instantly and be used to control the camera remotely.

John Rettie’s full post about Launch Pad is  on the WPPI blog.
