Rangefinder Tech Editor John Rettie took a last look around the WPPI trade show floor and has posted a wrap-up of new products that debuted there this week. He was able to preview the new lighting kit from Lowell, the Medusa lighting system developed by photographer Peter Hurley, the Fotodiox RhinoCam, which adapts a compact camera to work with a medium-format lens, a new bag from LowePro, and more. He also checked out how Animoto Pro has changed its slide show software to expand the length of presentations and, thanks to a deal with Triple Scoop Music, make licensing music much easier.
