Light & Easy to Use

Before the Nikon D3400 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black), you chose your smartphone camera for convenience. Zooming was clumsy. Shooting in low light was nearly impossible. Capturing fast action was a game of luck. But after the D3400, you’ll see that you were compromising image quality. That some of the greatest photos happen when the light is low. That fast action can be frozen in perfect clarity. And that a camera and a smartphone can work together in harmony to make the photos you share absolutely amazing.

One of our favorite photographers, Ralph Elliott Starkweather, took the D3400 for a spin. Read his review and check out his photography here.

Purchase the Nikon D3400.

Fly with Peace of Mind

Calling all drone enthusiasts: The Parrot BeBop Drone 2 with Skycontroller (White)combines aerodynamics, style and robustness in a lightweight and compact drone.

Bebop 2 is equipped with a system of automatic shutdown of the propellers in a collision, a rear powerful LED to always determine its direction and automatic “return home” functions. With drone, one can fly with confidence.

As stated in an official press release:

The Fahey/Klein Gallery is pleased to present The Grey Ghost, an exhibition of work by contemporary photographer Dan Winters. The exhibition coincides with the release of Winters’s latest publication,The Grey Ghost (Rocky Nook, 2016).

This body of work is a highly personal collection of images that serves as a visual diary of the time Winters spent living and working in New York City throughout the late 1980’s and up until 2016.

Among the icons of the city, Winters captures the fleeting, beautiful, and strange happenings one experiences on the streets of New York. The serendipitous moments that only become visible to those comfortable with a city, when the bustle and noise begin to fade and one can truly begin to see what makes the city so remarkable. The Grey Ghost becomes an ode to the city-as-muse, one that eternally captivates and inspires.

For exhibition hours and information, visit here.

Samy’s Camera recently had the pleasure of sitting down with David Fahey of Fahey/Klein gallery. Stay tuned…

Happy Friday!
