Canon EOS 7D Mark II Cable Protector
Buried in the press material for the EOS 7D Mark II announcement was an image showing a unique accessory that is being bundled with the camera – a cable protector.
 
Canon says in the EOS 7D Mark II User's Manual:
"When connecting the interface cale, also use the provided cable protector. Using the cable protector prevents the cable from accidental disconnection and the terminal from getting damaged."
You can see the cable protector socket in the following diagram:
 
Canon EOS 7D Mark II Cable Protector Socket
 
And here's how you install and use the cable protector:
 
Canon EOS 7D Mark II Cable Protector Installation
 
The included cable protector means that I won't have to purchase a 3rd party accessory (like the Tether Tools JerkStopper) to protect my 7D II's camera's ports from excess strain when using the interface/HDMI cables. Nice! [Sean]
 
B&H has the Canon EOS 7D Mark II available for preorder.

Canon Digital Learning Center Logo
From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
Autumn begins around late September, bringing with it a seasonal change that inspires photographers across the nation: Fall foliage. Autumn’s dramatic landscapes are stunning to behold and the challenge is how to preserve the impact in a still photograph that captures the unique quality of this season.
 
An autumn-colored tree is a subject unto itself. It is a time where a photograph of a simple tree can stand on its own and, in most cases, break all the rules of composition. There’s just something special about a tree (or landscape full of trees) turning brilliant colors this time of year. However, if you take it a step further — give the tree some dramatic lighting, throw in a compositional aid such as a creek or road, make use of color filter effects, and think carefully about framing and composition — then you’re on the right track to making a great photo that doesn't just rely on pretty colors.
See the entire article on the Canon Digital Learning Center.

Nikon D750 DSLR Camera
From AmateurPhotographer.co.uk:
"Nikon has advised D750 DSLR users to manually activate the security setting on Nikon’s Wi-Fi software app for mobile devices, to avoid the risk of unauthorised access to the camera’s images by a third party.
 
Amateur Photographer (AP)’s technical team has discovered a potential security flaw during their review of a full-production sample of the D750, which went on sale in the UK two days ago.
 
If users do not manually activate the Wi-Fi security settings, via the app, then they could expose the D750’s images to unauthorised access."
AP technical editor Andy Westlake added:
"If you have Wi-Fi turned on, anyone with a smart device and the Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility can connect to the camera and download images from the memory card without the owner’s permission."
