  • Just Announced: Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Macro Lens

    Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Macro Lens

    Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Macro Lens

    Nikon announces a new lens, the AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Macro lens (Nikon Part #2200, UPC 018208022007). This lens is designed for DX, "crop" sensor cameras, like the highly popular D3100, D5100, or D7000. On a DX-format camera the effective field-of-view is equivalent to a 60mm lens. One of Nikon's most popular macro lenses has been the 60mm f/2.8. It only makes sense then for them to come out with a lens like this that has a 60mm equivalent field-of-view for DX camera bodies.

    The tentative release for this lens is sometime in August. We already have our initial order in with Nikon, and when the lens comes in you will be able to purchase it from our website here. If you are interested in pre-ordering, please call our retail store at (802) 244-0883.

    We are excited for this lens to come in for testing. It is the cheapest macro lens we have seen in a long time ($279). When we get one in we will test it out and let you know here, on our blog, our initial thoughts.

  • NEW! Olympus PEN E-P3, E-PL3, E-PM1 Digital Cameras and 12mm f/2.0, 45mm f/1.8 Lenses

     

    New Olympus Pen Digital CamerasWe are excited for the new Olympus PEN digital cameras, and we are also very excited for the newly announced 12mm f/2.0 and 45mm f/1.8 lenses. The full-frame equivalent focal-length for these lenses will be 24mm and 90mm respectively, making the 12mm perfect for low-light/fast wide-angles, like landscapes, and the 45mm perfect for portraiture.

    In our opinion, although it is fun to adapt lenses to the PEN system, it is about time Olympus has announced some faster aperture, fixed focal length lenses to compliment the 17mm we saw a while ago. And, we are happy to see that the build quality looks to be better than any of the lenses we have seen thus far.

     

  • Now Available! New Think Tank Photo Speed Bags!

    New! Think Tank Photo Speed Convertible Beltpacks

    The wildly popular Think Tank Photo Speed bags have been updated to V2.0 and are now available for sale. We sold a ton of the Speed Demons, Speed Freaks, and Speed Racers, and were a bit concerned when Think Tank told us they were being discontinued. Our customers loved them. Think Tank mentioned the upcoming release of updated replacements, but did not provide us with any details of what and when. Well, we are happy that we can now say the replacements, labeled V2.0, are here, in stock, and ready for sale.

    The Think Tank Speed Bag In Use

    These new, updated bags are really cool. They are virtually two bags in one. The Speed Demon V2.0, Speed Freak V2.0, and Speed Racer V2.0, which range in size according to the order listed here, can act as a beltpack/waistpack or shoulder pack as shown above. The designers at Think Tank were able to create a slick little resting place for the waist strap (see below) that is completely out of view, so when you are using the case as a shoulder bag it is completely out of the way, which means you aren't tripping up on the strap while photographing.

    New Think Tank Photo Speed BagsAll of the new Think Tank speed bags are available at our website with free standard shipping (restrictions apply): www.gmcamera.com. Click the bag names in the paragraph above to be taken to those bags directly.

  • PocketWizard ControlTL Products for Nikon Now Available

    It's been a long time coming, but the PocketWizard MiniTT1, FlexTT5 and AC3 ZoneController for Nikon have started shipping and are now in stock (for now, at the time of this writing).

    As powerful as the Nikon Creative Lighting System is, it has its disadvantages and limitations. The biggest setback is the line-of-sight requirement. Want to hide a speedlight behind a wall, tree, or any other obstacle? Well,  sorry, but it probably won't fire. Also, in bright sunlight, or at greater distances, you'll be out of luck too.

    PocketWizard took the advantages of a wireless TTL flash system like the Nikon Creative Lighting System and gave it more guts. Instead of using the visible spectrum of light for communication, PocketWizard was able to make it work on a radio frequency. This improves the working distance, and obstacles no longer become...obstacles.

    Also, the AC3 ZoneController is an awesome accessory. It puts the power of being able to change lighting ratios at your fingertips. Have a couple lights all on the same system, but want to change their effective exposure? The AC3 allows you to quickly make that change right at your camera.

    For a more in-depth look at how the system works, make sure to check out this video. Please note, it was produced at a time when the ControlTL products were not available for Nikon, so the host only mentions Canon. No need to worry because--as you now know--they're available for Nikon too, and you can purchase them here.

  • Canon's Full HD Movie Print Now Available for PIXMA Pro Printers

    If you're unaware, Canon's latest printers like the MG6120 and the MG8120 come prepackaged with software that allows you to take your HD videos shot with select Canon digital cameras, freeze the video, and print still images of those frozen frames.

Want to hang it on your wall? Go for it!

    Many customers have been asking for this feature for their PIXMA Pro printers like the Pro9000 Mark II and the Pro9500 Mark II. And, now its available on these printers. All that's required is updating your Easy Photo Print EX software. Not sure how to do this? No problem. We've linked to a document Canon sent us that spells it all out for you:

    Here's how you can update your Easy Photo Print EX software to take advantage of the HD Movie Print feature with your Pro9000 Mk II and Pro9500 Mk II printers.

  • Confused by Color Management? This will help!

    Datacolor has posted a series of webinars on color management using the Spyder system. If you've been confused by color management (or if your asking youself "what the heck is color management" right now), these free webinars may just be the thing you need.

    Datacolor Color Management Webinar Schedule for 2011

    Datacolor manufactures color management products for photographers, digital artists, and more. The first step for good color management starts with calibrating your monitor. If you've been editing your digital photographs and the prints just aren't coming out right, you've probably got the monitor blues (or reds, or greens). You may also need to get your printer profiled, but your monitor is the first, and easiest step. If you want to start off small, Datacolor offers the Spyder3Express. It offers professional results on the cheap. But, there are other, more comprehensive options too.

    Check out the calibration page on our website to see what Datacolor has to offer for color management products:

    Green Mountain Camera in the News

    Published in Champlain Business Journal November 2010 Issue

    Green Mountain Camera is proud to have an article featured in the November 2010 issue of the Champlain Business Journal.

  • Green Mountain Camera is Moving, New Time-Lapse Video

    Green Mountain Camera is proud to announce it is moving to a new bigger, better location just North of its current home. Green Mountain Camera is currently "chopped up" into two locations: a warehouse and a retail store. The new home of Green Mountain Camera will provide a centralized location with both expanded warehousing and expanded retail space. What does this mean for you, the customer? A much better shopping experience! Our retail customers will have more access to new equipment, and all of the used equipment we warehoused for lack of space in our retail store will now be immediately available for viewing in our retail store. In addition, our online customers can expect even faster ship times as all of our inventory will be available under one roof. So, items that used to take one business day to ship will be available for shipping immediately.

    In anticipation of the move, Jay (an associate at Green Mountain Camera) made this time-lapse video. This video shows the carpenters painting the ceiling and walls of the new retail space. Jay shot the video over many hours and comprised the video from over 600 frames. He also added in a little information about the new location and a picture of the new retail store. We hope you find the video as exciting as we do, and if you have any questions about the move or the equipment used to make the video, or anything else, please feel free to contact us.

  • JUST RELEASED: Canon EOS 5D Mark II Firmware Upgrade

    A new firmware upgrade for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II was just released. The new firmware is version 2.0.7, and incorporates the following improvements and fixes:

    1. Fixes a phenomenon in which the aperture exhibits abnormal movement when shooting movies in manual exposure mode and Aperture Priority AE (Av mode) using some Canon lenses (such as macro lenses).
    2. Fixes a phenomenon in which the exposure level shown in the LCD panel differs from what is shown in the viewfinder when shooting still images in manual exposure mode.
    3. Fixes a phenomenon in which the Wireless File Transmitter (WFT-E4 or WFT-E4 II) may not automatically power off when used for FTP transfers.

    These phenomenon only occur with the Version 2.0.4 and Version 2.0.3 firmware.

    The Version 2.0.7 firmware being released this time is for cameras with firmware up to Version 2.0.4. If the camera's firmware is already Version 2.0.7, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

  • NEW: Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. Lens

    Interested in this lens? Check it out here, and contact us for pre-orders! First deliveries are expected in July.

    Announcement copied from Leica:

    Leica Camera presents a new member to the M-Lens family – the Leica Summilux-M 35mm/f1.4 ASPH. In the M-System, the 35 mm lenses are the most popular . The combination of moderate wide angle characteristics paired with natural dimensions makes this focal length versatile.
    The optical design of the Leica Summilux-M 35mm/f1.4 ASPH has been optimised for the use with either the digital Leica M cameras or the traditional analogue cameras for stunning results. In particular, this lens shows its full potential with the Leica M9.

    The Leica Summilux-M 35 mm/f1.4 ASPH is equipped with a Floating Element, which keeps the outstanding imaging performance at a very high level even at close focusing distance. The new patented, rectangular, full-metal lens hood makes the lens more compact than its predecessor.

    The advantages of the Leica Summilux-M are:
    • Outstanding imaging performance even at full open aperture throughout the full focusing range from infinity down to 28.
    • Selective sharpness ability for creative photography due to the large maximum aperture of F1.4.
    • Very good supppression of stray light and reflexes for high-contrast pictures even in back light situations.
    • Very good visibility through the viewfinder due to compact dimensions.
    • High quality, all-metal lens hood.
    • 3-years passport warranty.
