If you've been saving up your holiday money for some new gear, check out this opportunity. In a big year end bash, Canon and Nikon are both offering some pretty big discounts on a bunch of different cameras and lenses. The best deal Nikon is offering gives you $1,000 off a D750 and lens while Canon is offering $650 off a 7D Mk II with various lens options. Not only do Canon deals include some of their best bodies and lenses, the award winning Canon 600EX-RT speedlite is also on sale. These discounts will only last until January 2 so check out your options below.
MacPhun released Aurora HDR just a few weeks ago and touts it as the most advanced high dynamic range (HDR) software in the world. Certainly, veteran users of Photoshop and Lightroom might be skeptical. But if your sole purpose is to create HDR photos on the Mac, Aurora HDR might be the best option out there, seeing as it was created with the close consultation of HDR photographer Trey Ratcliff. In this video, Ratcliff dives deep in a first-hand look into how to get the most from Aurora HDR.
[UPDATE: The contest has closed and a winner has been randomly selected. Congratulations to Patricia Schwenk for being selected as the winner of a new Tamron lens!]

Happy Thanksgiving! Of course, the die-hard dealmakers are busy planning for their Black Friday shopping lists, trying to find the best last-minute deals that less money can buy. From deals on prominent gear and photography business services, to those on accessories and computer equipment, we have a few deals rounded up from around the Internet for you. Take it or leave it, this is some of the best stuff you'll find tomorrow (and in some cases, through the weekend and Cyber Monday).
Have some money saved from the holidays? Maybe a few B&H Photo Video gift cards? Now may be the perfect time to buy with savings of up to $900 and $850 on Nikon and Canon bundles, respectively. B&H Photo Video is offering instant rebates on most Nikon and Canon systems, including the newer Nikon D750, D610, and D4s, and Canon 7D Mark II, 5D Mark III, and 1D X.
So you didn't get the new Sony a7 Camera you wanted for the holidays? Well there's still time to take advantage of Sony's trade-in incentives toward a new a7 camera and/or select lenses. In addition to the trade value of your working SLR or mirrorless camera, B&H is also offering 15% credit toward your purchase. I don't want to sound like an advertisement, but I had an opportunity to use the Sony a7 system recently for a product shoot and I'm definitely buying one. I just need to figure out whether to go with the a7, a7II, a7R, or a7S before this promotion expires on December 31st.
As a professional photographer I have always been curious about the art of videography since the two seem to go hand in hand, but I have never made the jump to shooting my own content because I was always quite unsure of where to start. I wanted to quickly learn the basics and start shooting right away. I’m a visual learner, and I figured a crash course in an online tutorial would be my best bet, but searching for tutorials scattered across Youtube seemed tedious. Recently Jared Polin, better known as Fro from FroKnowsPhoto released a comprehensive guide to shooting video using a DSLR called The FroKnowsPhoto Guide to DSLR Video.
From now until December 24th, Hasselblad is offering 40 percent off of their H5D series of cameras and lens bundles. They are also offering 20 percent off of lenses when bought with H5D, H5X, and Certified Pre-Owned bodies. If you've been waiting for the right time to purchase a Hasselblad, this may be it.
Happy Independence Day! As with every holiday, companies roll out some of their best discounts for the year on gear and electronics. I have been researching to find the best deals for the Fourth of July, and have came up with a comprehensive list of websites and offers you should take advantage of immediately. If you are looking to pick up a new camera, stock-up on memory cards, finally get a new camera bag, or splurge on a new TV, this list has something for everyone.
Oh man, less than two weeks until Christmas and you STILL haven't finished shopping. It's ok everyone, we're in the same boat. That's why we are continuing to update our Holiday Gear Guide to reflect the best gifts between $200 and $500 so you can make a big splash with some amazing stuff stuffed in those stockings.
UPDATE: Though the B&H deal has expired, you can grab Lightroom 5 on Amazon for a cool $69. Lightroom 5, which was already on sale for under $110, for the next three hours (1 PM ET to 4 PM ET) is only $89. If you've wanted to own Lightroom 5 for a bargain-basement price, now is the time to grab it. For those of you who bought it at the $110 price, maybe there is still time to cancel the order and pick it up for cheaper.
Today is the last day to save on photography training courses over at KelbyTraining.com. This is their biggest sale of the year so you don't want to pass this up. With over 700 hours of training from some of the best photographers in the world, they have discounted every subscription. Normally an annual subscription is $199 but they're offering $40 off and a monthly subscription is just $14.95.
Well there is no avoiding it now that Thanksgiving is over and December has begun: the holidays are upon us. If you're still thinking about gifts for that photographer in your life (or yourself), we have updated our Holiday Gear Guide to reflect the best gifts between $100 and $200 for those of you with a little bit more set aside to afford to pack under the tree.
