We here at B&H are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Steve Jobs. Our sincere condolences go out to Steve’s family, and we wish them the best as they deal with this tragic and difficult time. Apple products have been a very important part of the B&H catalog, and we take pride in our position as one of the premiere retailers of Apple computers, tablets and portable media players. Steve’s creative spirit and amazing legacy will always be with us. Rest in Peace, Steve. You will be missed.
Steven P. Jobs, co-founder of Apple, passed away on October 5, 2011 following years of declining health.
I have blogged, lectured and argued for many years that a camera is nothing more than a tool that solves a given photographer’s problem. A camera brand is not a symbol of loyalty to one kind of photography, nor is it some kind of credential for membership in some kind of “club.” The sooner each photographer starts to figure out what their particular challenges are, and which camera works for them to resolve those challenges (regardless of brand), the sooner they will start making the kind of photographs they want. Recent experience has taught me that I need to start talking the same way about the laptop computers that photographers use for digital image processing.
The Pro Audio section of the B&H SuperStore comprises almost a quarter of the first floor. In this area, customers can peruse keyboards, speakers, a DJ area, electronic drums, Apple Mac Pro workstations, software, and even a soundproof booth with microphones. The audiophile, sound technician, musician, or gear enthusiast will be dazed by all of the audio equipment surrounding them—which they can play with, too!
Take a look at our photo tour of the Pro Audio section, and listen to some rockin' tunes while you're doing so.
The new workstations at B&H bring together the worlds of video post and audio production like never before. They allow you to test drive the latest software and hardware, and witness firsthand how the sonic and visual sides of post production interact. Have you ever used Final Cut Studio software on a powerful Apple Mac Pro computer? Want to audition the latest Universal Audio UAD-2 plug-ins in a Logic session? Now you can!
I hate backing up. I do it, but I hate it. If you’re not running back ups, you’re courting heartache. My cautionary tale: A few years back, my brother and I were editing our first indie feature. Our data got corrupted. Nothing was backed up. We lost 3 months of post-production -- the entire film. Starting from scratch nearly killed us. Don’t let it happen to you.
When Apple released the first version of Aperture back in 2005, the industry took notice. By combining professional-grade photo editing with an extensive file management system, the software became an instant hit with smaller studios and photojournalists. Back then, almost all editing was done in Photoshop. Creating individual layers to control shadows, mid-tones, and highlights was industry standard.
