The Capture PRO Camera Clip v2 – available at HolgaDirect

Here at HolgaDirect headquarters we are always on the lookout for any gadget or device which can make our lives easier. And now we are super excited to be able to offer the latest Capture PRO Camera Clip v2 from Peak Design.

For those of you who have not heard of this ingenious device the first version of the clip was launched by Peak Design on Kickstarter and was hugely successful. And now the great team at Peak Design have done it again with version 2 of the Camera Clip. Originally the Capture v2 project required $100,000 to reach the Kickstarter target but by the end of the campaign they had managed to reach a whopping total of over $800,000! Anyway, here is some background on the new Capture Clip which we are sure will be a real popular choice this year for that photo gift for any outdoor photographer!

Pixelist Instagram Contest Winner- Finished Painting

Painting of Contest Winner Janna Gibson’s Instagram

We just got a look at the final painting from our Instagram contest with Pixelist and it looks amazing. HolgaDirect had a chance to chat with Janna about her image and how she ended up taking such an amazing pic with her iPhone.

About the photo:

This photo was taken in Ulsan, South Korea in January, 2012. The portrait is of a friend HeeJinnie and was snapped as we were walking from my apartment down the road to a nearby bus stop. Growing up landlocked in the southeastearn part of America, I’d never been so bone chillingly cold as I’ve been in the winters of South Korea. When this photo was taken, my first year in Korea, I lived just 1 kilometer from the sea, which led to some terrific wind on days that were as cold as -18 C ( – 4 F). Continue Reading…

HolgaDirect Sweden arrives!

Here at HolgaDirect headquarters we are often amazed at the diversity of our community of fans, followers and customers. Taking a quick look at our Google Analytics account for 2012 we can see that we had website visits from 187 different countries! Some of the more surprising countries on the list are Zambia, Turkmenistan, Greenland, and Papua New Guinea. We’d never have guessed to be seeing those names on the list when we started a few years back.
