Matin Neoprene Lens Pouch Set Review

Matin Neoprene Lens Pouch Set of 4
Neoprene is a quite durable synthetic material that besides thermal insulation provides also great protection and shock absorption.

The Matin lens pouches are made of 3mm thin neoprene fabric, the same material that in thicker versions is used for scuba diving suits.

These neoprene lens pouches are very soft and elastic, but still durable enough to hold and protect your lenses and not only as we shall see further down.

The Hejnar Photo line of Dedicated modular L Brackets for SONY cameras was enriched a couple of days ago with a dedicated L Bracket for the SONY α7ΙΙ Interchangeable Lens Mirrorless Camera.

Hejnar Photo Universal Modular L Bracket 44 Review

The Hejnar PHOTO Universal Modular L Bracket 44 follows the concept of the Modular Hejnar Photo Universal Camera L Brackets previewed quite some time ago.

Much like the Universal Modular L Bracket 22 reviewed last April the L Bracket 44 is a pre-assembled package of the Hejnar Universal L Bracket Base 4 combined with the Hejnar Universal L Bracket Side 4.

I will continue mentioning in all my previews and reviews concerning universal L brackets, that there are both advantages and disadvantages in choosing a universal L bracket instead of a Custom / Dedicated L bracket.

New Feet and Extenders for Metabones Adapter from Hejnar Photo

Hejnar Foot Assembly with Metabones Adapter
Metabones® Adapters are quite popular with Interchangeable Lens Compact Cameras, expanding the arsenal of lenses with models coming from long established manufacturers like Canon and Nikon.

Although the latest Metabones adapters feature a tripod mounting foot, beeing Arca-compatible even, there are some restrictions and limitations when the users come to deploy a large diameter lens, a Battery Grip or a Tilt-Shift lens.

New Sunwayfoto Custom Discal Quick Release Clamp for Arca-Swiss P0

Sunwayfoto DDY-60p0 on Arca-Swiss P0 head
Together with the recent release of the Updated DDH Series of Panning Clamps (Preview), Sunwayfoto has also released a custom clamp for the Arca-Swiss® P0 ball head.

Reverting to a long tongue alignment mechanism for the moving jaw, a long screw knob and a satin-black hard coat anodizing, the new Sunwayfoto DDY-60p0 Discal Quick Release clamp reminds me a lot of the old Sunwayfoto DDY-64 Discal Quick Release Clamp (Review) in looks.

Sunwayfoto Updated DDH Series of Panning Clamps Preview

Sunwayfoto DDH-04 Panning Clamp top view
While there has been an intermediate release of the DDH-03i panning clamp, which was described in detail in the Sunwayfoto Revised 2014 version DDH-03i Panning Clamp Review, it's been a year and a half from the release of the i=improved versions of the DDH-02 and DDH-03 panning clamps.

The initial announcement of a new DDH-05 replacing the DDH-03i back in December 2014, was a little unexpected because of the recent DDH-03i / 2014 version release.
