Lou Jones at PhotoPlus Expo 2010

One of the many things that I like about PhotoPlus Expo in NY, is chatting with the photographers who visit the Lowepro booth. They’re interesting and are happy to share their knowledge. We provide a place for them to show off their stuff too.

Here’s a short video featuring Lou Jones. I first met Lou at PhotoPlus last year. He’s a master with portable, off-camera flash. So I asked him how he’s packing his Pro Roller x200. Here’s what he had to say.

    I just purchased one of your camera cases. While it is a suitable product I was disappointed to read on the stiff card attached that it was designed in California but manufactured in China.
    That sure as hell is nothing to brag about.The unemployment numbers in the good old U.S. of A. are staggering and you export possible jobs to China. I thought that Walmart was bad but now I see you too are part of the bloody problem. No use coming back to me with a spiel about costs because it will do no good.
