The X100s has pretty much been sold out since it’s release, but B&H has a few back in stock! The Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L is back in stock as well. Plus they also have the Fujifilm X-E1 with XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens for sale with a $200 instant savings! The used department also has refurbished D600s in stock.
Induro is one of those companies that had a really slow start, but has worked extremely hard to climb their way to being a household name. My first few experiences with Induro (although brief) were not great. The build quality of their products left a lot to be desired. Oh how things have changed! Today I’m going to give you the rundown on an Induro CT-114 Carbon Fiber Tripod. [more]
The Fujifilm X-A1 with 16-50mm lens is back in stock at B&H as is the Wacom Intous Pro in Medium! The X-A1 is a little guy that packs a nice punch, it’s available in Indigo Blue and is awaiting your add to cart click. It also comes in black and is available for pre-order. It packs a punch at 16 megapixels and has a 1.5 crop sensor. It comes in at a mere $599, so it’s a cost effective alternative for those who are in love with the X100 and X100s but don’t want to drop the cash. It still has the ability to shoot auto and manual but the best part is unlike the x100 and x100s, the lens can be swapped. [more]
When Nikon released the D610, I’m sure that many of you (myself included) initially reacted with joy. “Hooray!” we said. “They’ve fixed the problem of the D600! Nikon made things right!” But then I let things sit for a few hours and I realized, Nikon did no such thing. They didn’t fix anything, no more than Canon “fixed” the T4i when they released the T5i. Hooray? No. Not hooray. [more]
Designed by Apple’s Jony Ive and designer Marc Newson, Leica’s one-of-a-kind M for RED will be auctioned off at Southeby’s on November 23rd 2013 to raise money for The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

The rumor mills have been buzzing, and Nikon has finally answered the rumors with the announcement of the Nikon D610. The main upgrade for the D610 is the shutter mechanism, after addressing the “oil-like leak” on the sensor from the D600 model. Other enhancements include a small jump in burst speed, and some new weather sealing advancements. [more]
Zeiss, makers of some of the most outstanding glass on the market, announced a new member of their Canon and Nikon connected lenses: the 55mm f/1.4 Otus Distagon T* Lens. It is a standard focal length premium lens optimized for full-format DSLR camera sensors. If it’s anything like the 135mm f/2.0 APO SONNAR, there is a lot to be excited about. [more]
As cell phone companies continue to improve their cameras, users are finding it increasingly easy to take better photos. Aside from resolution and low light capability, most phones now offer some sort of Automatic Image Stabilization. The technology works by either moving the sensor or lens to counteract unwanted movement before the image is converted to digital information.While some companies struggle to communicate how the image stabilization operates, LG has found a hilarious alternative to technical jargon.

If you are like me your work computer is one of your most prized possessions. It does the heavy lifting in post production, and it’s also there in times of need, like “needing” to waste four hours on Facebook instead of finishing your retouching. So, what is the best way to keep that fine piece of machinery in tip top shape? Well, honestly there are a lot of ways, but I’m only going to tell you about my favorite apps, all 6 of them. Unfortunately for you Windows and Linux peeps I’m an Apple user, so most of these apps are Mac only. *womp womp* [more]
On Tuesday, Apple quietly (and I mean VERY quietly) released the newest update to the iMac line of personal computers. It’s curious why they (Apple) didn’t make any sort of major announcement, or even blend this into the September 10th announcement of the iPhone 5S. I personally think that this update is fairly newsworthy, not only because the iMac has become one of the staples in a lot of professional studio’s digital labs and Tech carts, but it’s a huge leap in performance over it’s predecessor, if you believe the info on Apple’s website that is.

Miley Cyrus is just becoming the talk of the town lately, but the one time she does something completely normal, everyone has to make a big deal out of it. Which is why she posted a plain old Nikon N80 35mm camera on eBay and it’s currently up to
$13,300 $80,100 $92,000 with plenty of time left to go.
Often as photographers we put in long hours on our feet, walk quite a bit, bend, crouch, shimmy and shake all while carrying heavy gear on our shoulders and back. At the end of the day my feet would be sore, my legs tired, my thighs chaffed and my back aching. If you have felt the same way, here are three things that will help you be more comfortable and pain free while out on long shoots. [more]
I use PASS for my gallery systems. I use it because it’s pretty on both the computer and on mobile devices, something that Smugmug and Zenfolio sometimes fail on. The system is pretty expensive ($30 per gallery), and gets a lot of criticism for completely hustling photographers over with their print system and prices. To top it off, Pass creator has had his share of controversy. Introducing Pixieset, everything that PASS SHOULD be, and at a reasonable price. [more]
There are an endless amount of options to help organize your daily tasks. Whether you are a working professional or simply a procrastinator, we have all felt the suffocating feeling of projects as they slowly begin to pile up. Some folks might be lucky enough to inherit a photographic memory or super human organizational skills, but if you are like me, you possess neither of those. Here is the best $15 I have ever spent to help keep myself organized. [more]
