It’s rare these days to find a family business that treats you like an old friend when you walk in the door. Inevitably, someone always asks the question, “How did you get started”? Want to know how this real family business got started? Bill Porter, President and CEO of Arlington Camera tells the interesting story here.


The 2nd Annual DFW Photo Expo, presented by Arlington Camera was held December 1st & 2nd, 2012 at the Arlington Convention Center in Arlington, TX. DFW Photo Expo is an incredible free trade show with lectures and training, product giveaways, amazing show deals, the most awesomest people ever and an unforgettable time. If photography is your passion, the DFW Photo Expo 2013 is where you want to be. It’s a gathering of the brightest minds, of breakthrough products, and a cast of the industry’s leading trailblazers. A community event to celebrate our customers and to hold our biggest annual sale. Arlington Camera has alway been a great supporter  of Kupo Grip. They had a lot of success with our products at the expo. Here are a couple of photos of the event.

Cinegear L.A. 2012

Out of all the trade shows where Kupo exhibits, Cinegear has to be one of my favorites. It is a two day event held this year, June 1st & 2nd, 2012, on the Paramount Pictures lot where we happened to be located on street called Greenwich Village. Being a New Yorker, it plays with your head to see reproductions of the neighborhoods that I grew up in. Cinegear features the latest top gear for cinematographers and video professionals. It is a smaller show than NAB, but being outside in the California sunshine playing with all the toys a DP dreams about, and talking with industry pros makes for a unique experience. If you would like more information about cinegear, just head over to If you’ll be in the L.A. area next year we welcome you to come buy and visit our booth. See you next year!

I would like to thank Mole-Richardson Co. for lending us some lights to dress up our stands as well as inviting us to their 85th Anniversary celebration. From being a pioneer in using incandescent lighting to replace the less efficient Carbon-Arc lights to Peter Mole’s Academy Awards, the first one for creating the Fresnel Spotlight, I wish Mole-Richardson Co. another 85 years of incredible lighting innovation that has lit up Hollywood and abroad since 1927.
