Think Tank Photo / MindShift Gear – (Booth #1029)

MindShift Gear’s new TrailScape backpack balances outdoor photographers’ desire to have access to their essential photo gear while maintaining a slim and compact profile. The TrailScape fits a complete camera system, including a 70-200mm f/2.8 attached with hood in the shooting position. With its multiple lash points, photographers can carry extra gear, such as a light jacket and lunch. Its laptop and tablet slots allow them to use this as their “go to” backpack while in transit. Additional features include a dedicated quick access smartphone/sunglasses pocket, a tripod/monopod/hiking pole mounting system, and two large water bottle pockets with cinch cord.

WhiteWall Lab – (Booth #140)

WhiteWall lab has truly revolutionized the print process with its new ultraHD Photo Print, taking photo prints to the next level in terms of sharpness. Thanks to innovative exposure techniques and technology, WhiteWall has managed to achieve twice the resolution of conventionally developed pictures. Regardless of whether a photo is taken with a medium format camera or a smartphone, the ultraHD Photo Print lives up to its name, producing the highest possible amount of sharpness. These incredibly sharp results are created by solid state laser exposure working in perfect harmony with more efficient developing and drying processes.

To make the photo paper as even as possible, it is climatized in a special room with constant humidity and stable temperature. This helps minimize laser beam dispersal, resulting in razor sharp prints. Proprietary software is used to optimize the color intensity and sharpness of image files.  For those looking for the ultimate in image sharpness, the ultraHD Photo Print Under Acrylic Glass is an exciting option. ultraHD Photo Prints are available with ¾-inch or 1.5-inch acrylic glass to accentuate the image’s depth and vibrant colors.
