What is Focus Magic? Focus Magic uses advanced forensic strength deconvolution technology to literally "undo" blur. It can repair both out-of-focus blur and motion blur (camera shake) in an image. It is the only software that can significantly recover lost detail from blurry images. It is the only sharpening software I use for all of my images!
I have recently started using the amazing Breakthrough Filters. They make the world's sharpest and most color neutral polarizers - check them out!

Our friends at Think Tank Photo have just announced an exciting new partnership with hard-case manufacturer SKB. Think Tank’s designers have created internal divider sets, organizers, and a backpack designed specifically to fit within 10 SKB hard cases. There are times when you simply have to airline gate-check your most precious photography equipment. At moments like these, nothing will do a better job of protection than a hard case. But one of the downsides of hard cases is that they are basically hard shells with not a lot of other features built into them. Think Tank’s partnership with SKB solves this problem. The result is the best of a hard case with the best of internal organization. Don’t forget that with our special partnership with Think Tank that you receive free gear and free shipping when you order using our special link.
