The-Digital-Picture.com Note: I own this compact viewfinder and use it regularly with my 5D III. It's extremely useful for viewing images on the LCD in bright conditions. The compact design takes up less room in my gear bag. I highly recommend it! [Sean]

The Nikon Blog has posted an interview with immersive photographer Henry Stuart. The article is interesting enough, but the excerpt below made me laugh out loud:

And what’s the most unusual job you’ve ever done?
 
The weirdest must be taking the 360° image of Raja, a Komodo dragon at London Zoo. I wasn’t allowed to enter the enclosure – these are big, dangerous predators – so I had to teach the head keeper how to use my D800. He went in there armed with a stick, and bottle of fish juice and blood which he scattered around to tempt Raja out into the open.
 
Just as we’d finally gotten the shot, Raja started to take a huge interest in the camera and tried to run off with it. The keeper managed to rescue it by hooking the strap on the end of his stick, and then Raja started to chase him round the pond. So there was this poor guy, fish-juice bottle in one hand, D800 dangling from the stick in the other, with the Komodo dragon in hot pursuit… When he finally got out and I got my camera back, the smell from where it had been licked was disgusting. I wasn’t allowed to leave the zoo until the strap had been boil-washed and my D800 had been completely swabbed down and disinfected. I could still smell that saliva on it two months later!

See the entire article at the Nikon Blog.

A few days ago Canon Korea garnered some attention for a teaser page they posted hinting at an upcoming announcement.
 
It looks like Canon Japan has let the cat out of the bag. A teaser video found on Canon Japan's Facebook Page bluntly states, "White Kiss Debut!"
 
In Japan, the Canon EOS Rebels are known as Kiss cameras. ;-)

This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending November 9th, 2013.
 
In the news...
 
On Tuesday, Nikon finally announced their retro-styled full-frame camera – the 16.2 megapixel Df, along with a redesigned 50mm f/1.8 special edition lens. The Df combines design elements inspired by Nikon’s classic “F” series with modern technology borrowed from the D4. The camera features a robust design with mechanical dials for ISO, shutter speed, and exposure compensation. The Df will hit the shelves later this month with an MSRP of $2,749.95 (body only) or right at three grand for the camera & 50mm f/1.8 SE lens kit.
 
Also on Tuesday, Profoto announced their TTL enabled, battery-powered and completely cordless off-camera flash – the B1. The B1’s battery will give you up to 220 full-power (500 watt-second) flashes from a single charge and recycles in less than 2 seconds. The B1 will be available in December for a suggested retail price of $1,995.00.
 
On Thursday, Tamron announced the development of its SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD lens. The lens features an optical construction of 20 elements in 13 groups with 3 Low Dispersion glass elements, a compact design, and a redesigned tripod mount. Unfortunately, the release date and price are as of yet, unknown.
 
On Friday, we posted a screenshot of Canon Korea’s teaser page and asked – what do you think it is? So far, most people believe the soon-to-be-announced camera is a white Rebel-series camera. We probably won’t have to wait much longer to find out…
 
In site news and reviews...
 
On Wednesday, we asked for your most challenging shot stories. We want to know what challenges you faced when capturing your toughest shot.
 
Our first visitor-submitted challenging shot story was posted the following day and involved the complexities of shooting a Tesla machine and theatre performance.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Friday, we posted a deal from DigitalRev where you could get Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens for $769.00. That’s a $130.00 savings off the normal retail price.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!

Canon EOS 5D Mark III with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens
eBay (via BigValueInc) has the Canon EOS 5D Mark III with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens available for $3,555.38 with free shipping. Compare at $3,779.00.
 
Caveat Emptor: BigValueInc's positive feedback rating is at 98.3%. We received information that some buyers received the wrong product when purchasing from this merchant. Be sure to keep all supporting documents if taking advantage of this offer. eBay does seem to trust "BigValueInc" enough to continue listing their auctions as "Daily Deals" and we had a good first-hand experience with them.
