While these rebates have been extended before, there's no guarantee that it will happen again. If you're on the fence about a purchase, now would be a good time to click the "Buy" button before it's too late. ;-)

Brianna and Her American Flag Cake
Happy Independence Day, USA! I know – I'm a day late (the holiday is on the 4th). But, the cake was not done in time to post this yesterday.
 
One of my life's best investments was in The Cook's Illustrated Cookbook. We gave it to my oldest daughter, Brianna, for Christmas a couple of years ago. The cookbook seldom left her side for the next year and it still gets lots of use. Brianna has become an excellent chef in that time – with deserts being one of her specialties.
 
Fast forward to earlier this week. I showed Brianna a picture of a cake decorated as a flag using fruit and whipped cream (our Independence Day holiday is best represented by the American flag).
 
Yesterday, the investment in the education (the cookbook and the time Bri spent with it) and the inspiration of a picture came together to yield this cake.
 
The cake of course turned into a photo subject. This time the Canon SL1 was paired with the Canon EF-S 18-55mm STM IS Lens (above) and the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC Lens (below). While the lenses were not the most drool-worthy, the subject sure was.
 
American Flag Cake
 
The design was a few blueberries short of authentic, but the cake still looked great. And I can tell you that it tasted twice as good as it looked.
 
What inspiration are you finding in pictures? Are you generating inspiration with your pictures?

Adorama Logo
One of my jobs here is to make sure that we have the funding necessary to continue producing this site for you. Another is to find and recommend the best deals for you. Along with a great price, my definition of a good deal includes a reliable retailer with great customer service.
 
Adorama has emphasized again and again how much they like the site and you, our site's family. And to this point, they are making a significant commitment to all of us. While Adorama's support is going to be critical to our ongoing operations here, it is with great confidence that I direct you back to them via "BUY" buttons and other links on this site. I have personally trusted Adorama for far over $100,000 worth of gear purchases in the last 4+ years and I fully trust them to take care of your needs equally well. Adorama is a great company to work with.

Your Support Is Necessary
 
Many of you know this, but it takes an incredible amount of time (and money) to keep this site running (Monday was an 18 hour day for me, I'll log about 14 hours today (Tuesday)). Even with Sean and Doug working full time, I typically spend 60 - 80 hours a week working on this site which of course leaves no extra time for other income-producing work to feed the kids. My family (Sean and Doug's also) relies completely on this site and those supporting it for our financial needs. I humbly request your support by making your purchases at Adorama through the links provided on this site.

Canon LP-E6 Built-In Battery Management Guide
From Mike Chan at the Canon Digital Learning Center:
 
Memory card management during a shoot is very important and we all strive to avoid that sinking feeling when you take a memory card out of your card wallet, insert it into the camera, format the card, take a shot and realize that you inadvertently overwrote a full card. A lack of battery management is not AS catastrophic, but it can mean missing a series of key shots while trying to find a fully charged battery out of your bag.
 
There are many different methods to battery management and it is up to you to decide what feels comfortable. For example, Canon Explorer of Light Vincent Laforet mentions in his time-lapse tutorials his method of putting colored gaffers tape over the battery contacts as a visual cue for unusable batteries. For users of the Canon LP-E6 battery (found in the EOS 60D, EOS 60Da, EOS 70D, EOS 7D, EOS 6D, EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 5D Mark III), Canon Inc.’s engineers have built a battery management system into the yellow battery cover.
 
See the entire article on Canon Digital Learning Center.
 
B&H carries the Canon LP-E6 battery.
