Using White Balance for Artistic Purposes

Nikon D800 DSLR Camera
eBay (via BigValueInc) has the Nikon D800 DSLR Camera available for $2,332.82 with free shipping. Compare at $2,796.95.
 
Caveat Emptor:
Note that the camera deal listed here is not advertised as coming with Nikon USA service or warranty and is likely a grey market item. The auction indicates that a warranty is included, but that warranty may be a BigValueInc warranty. If such, BVI's warranty only covers parts for 1 year and labor for 90 days.
 
BigValueInc's positive feedback rating is at 99.2%. That is a good rating (and has been improving), but not a stellar rating. We have received a couple of reports of buyers receiving the wrong product when purchasing from this merchant, so be sure to keep all supporting documents if taking advantage of this offer. eBay trusts "BigValueInc" enough to call them a "Top Rated Plus" seller and to list their auctions as "Daily Deals". We have had a good first-hand experience with them (here and here).

Canon Flash
Adding to the photography gear comparison tools available on the site is the new Flash Product Images page.
 
Here you will find images of many recent Canon flashes and flash transmitters along with the ability to visibly compare them with any other included model (similar to the Lens Product Images page). Access to this tool is, as usual, found on the main tools page and from within individual flash reviews.
 
Please note that some of the older images in this tool were not captured to the precision of my current standards, so there may be a very slight size difference in size and/or alignment accuracy shown in some comparisons. The feature differences are quite clear.
