This is one of the most comprehensive overviews of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II that I've seen. It's definitely a good reference if you're considering stepping up from a Rebel or xxD series camera. For even more detail on this highly capable camera, check out Bryan's full review.
 
From the Canon USA YouTube Channel:
 
Step up to a Canon EOS 7D Mark II Digital SLR - designed to meet the demands of photographers and videographers who want to cover a wide range of artistic opportunities – from sports to wildlife and everything in between, and find the quality you've been looking for.

Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens
The balance of the standardized test results (distortion, flare and vignetting) along with measurements and product images (standard and eye candy) have been added to the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens review page.
 
Note that the first image quality link in my last Sigma 24 Art post inadvertently showed results for the 7D Mark II instead of the full frame 1Ds Mark III. If you didn't catch that, check the Image quality results again.
 
As I said in the last post, my goal is to complete this review within a week. Stay tuned.
 
B&H has the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens available for preorder with "coming soon" being the expectation for arrival.

Triggertrap Timelapse Pro App
From Triggertrap:
 
Triggertrap Timelapse Pro is an advanced companion app to the hugely successful Triggertrap Mobile App, offering flexible and powerful modular timelapse creation to iOS users for just £3.99.
 
Retaining the same user friendly format and beautiful design that has made Triggertrap Mobile such a hit with photographers, Timelapse Pro inspires timelapse photographers to create stunning images, customisable to their specific needs and situation. The app enables users to create timelapse sequences composed of so-called ‘Intervalometer’ and ‘Delay’ modules. These modules can be configured, mixed and matched. Several modules can be added to each timelapse sequence. Users can reorder and delete modules as they please, adding even more flexibility to their sequence. Photographers can also create and save as many timelapse sequences as they like, giving the option to save favourite settings for different scenarios.
 
Timelapse Pro takes all this power and enables photographers to dig even deeper into the fascinating world of timelapse. The app has been created in response to the needs of Triggertrap’s community of timelapse photographers, and the intrepid team of Triggertrap developers will continue to add features that fill the gaps in the timelapse photographer’s toolkit. Put simply: Timelapse Pro enables photographers to take epic, complex timelapses in an uncomplicated fashion.
 
Timelapse Pro is available to buy in the App Store from today for just £3.99 ($4.99). Users combine the app with a Triggertrap Mobile kit to use the app with their camera, expanding the photographer’s existing camera gear on to a world of new timelapse options.
 
Features:
 
  • Create multiple timelapse sequences with custom names for quick access.
  • Intervalometer module. Select the intervals between shots and either how many exposures photographers want to take or the duration you’d like to take exposures for.
  • Delay module. Insert delays between intervalometer modules that last seconds, minutes, or even hours.
  • Add as many modules to your timelapse as you like, allowing you to build more complex sequences.
  • Reorder your modules to suit your needs.
  • Power Saver mode that darkens screen while the timelapse is running to save power.
  • Battery Threshold. Stops activity when your battery hits the threshold so you don’t kill your device’s battery.
  • Available on iOS devices running iOS 8 or newer, including iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices.
Check out our Triggertap Mobile Dongle Review for more information.

Canon Digital Learning Center
From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
"Ever since the Speedlite 600EX-RT was introduced a couple of years ago, my [author Eric Stoner's] life as a portrait artist changed forever. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my Speedlite 580EXII! But, the amount of additional control and reliability that the Speedlite 600EX-RT offers is, in a word, superior!
 
'Speedliting,' for many people, can be a scary proposition especially using E-TTL Automatic flash. One reason, and it’s a good one, is that you never really know how much power the flash is outputting. Does one really NEED to know that information? I’m sure for some of you that the answer is 'yes' and I understand it, but I’m a results kind of guy! I know that these Speedlites work very well and I trust them!"

B+W Circular Polarizer Filter
B&H just made the 52mm circular polarizer filter choice easy! They have the B+W 52mm Kaesemann XS-Pro Circular Polarizer MRC Nano Filter on sale for $42.95 (Reg $82.95). This deal is for today only or while supplies last.
 
This is one of the best CP filters made (this is what I use) and at this price, I doubt the supply is going to last for long. Act fast!

Canon Professional Network Logo
From the Canon Professional Network:
"Canon Explorer Fernando Guerra originally qualified as an architect, but went on to combine this training with his love of photography, to become one of the world’s foremost architectural photographers. The new EOS 5DS DSLR – with its extraordinary 50.6 Megapixel sensor – is the perfect tool for people in Fernando’s line of work, as well as for landscape and studio photographers. So when Canon invited him to put a pre-production model of the camera through its paces, he was only too happy to accept. Once his test run was over, CPN caught up with Fernando to get his first impressions..."
