Lowepro Toploader Pro 70 AW II Bag
PETALUMA, Calif., Sept. 15, 2014 — Lowepro, the leading maker of photography carrying solutions, launches its agile and flexible toploading design from the Professional Collection: the Toploader Pro Series. Sports, event and active photographers will benefit from the updated features, including four wearing options.
 
“We looked at how people carry and work with their bags and designed a flexibility strap and harness system that lets photographers wear it four ways,” said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro brand director.
 
The multiple wearing options allow for tremendous freedom of movement. The bag includes 2 utility straps to configure as an over-the-shoulder strap, 3-point holster, or 4-point chest harness. The Toploader Pro may be secured at the waist using a belt or strapped to another bag via its SlipLock attachment loop.
 
Toploader Pro 75 AW II and 70 AW II are built to protect pro-sized set-ups with a snug, protective fit and fast access from the contoured, body-side opening.
 
Lowepro takes its patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover up a notch by adding a 360 degree All Weather AW Cover that protects contents from the bottom to the lid, so photographers can work out of the bag in the snow or rain.
 
The Toploader Pro Series also includes these premium features: super-strong metal D-rings from Duraflex to keep straps and harness secure; glove-friendly, U-shaped zipper pulls; soft, tricot lining on inside lid to protect screen; multiple storage pockets for small accessories and essentials.
 
Toploader Pro 75 AW II fits: Pro DSLR with 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached; small accessories
US MSRP $99.95
 
Toploader Pro 70 AW II fits: Pro DSLR with 24-70mm f/2.8 or 14-25mm f/2.8 lens attached; accessories
US MSRP $89.95
 
B&H carries the new Lowepro Toploader AW II bags.

Devin Graham used a Canon EOS 1D C and a Glidecam HD4000 stabilizer to shoot this fantastic promotional video for a skate park in Utah.
 
Takeaways from a Video Novice [Sean]
 
  1. The first element to a fantastic video is a great concept. Skateboarding through 5000 balloons? Who thinks of that?! Devin Graham – and that's a big reason why his video productions are so well-liked.
  2. Big ideas usually require a lot of setup. A reliable group of friends is an excellent asset to have.
  3. The Glidecam HD4000 is a great tool for helping to stabilize the video at the time of capture. But it also requires a strong forearm and quite a bit of determination when filming with a heavy camera like the 1D C. I know this first hand because I've shot video for two weddings in the past couple of months using a gripped 5D III with an external audio recorder sitting atop of the HD4000. Filming can be exhausting, but the end result is well worth the effort.
  4. Capturing scenes of static camera angles to mix in with your stabilized motion segments allows for a wide variety of options when piecing the video together. Sometimes I don't capture enough b-roll.

broncolor Siros Studio Flash
From broncolor:
 
broncolor is to introduce two new products at this year's photokina. Not only will they present a powerful addition to the versatile HMI series but also a completely new compact device. All photographers working with studio lighting will not want to miss these unveilings.
 
broncolor's new compact device combines unbeatable flash and super-fast charging times with reliable and intuitive handling. At 400 and 800 joules, Siros will not only be available in two output versions but also as a basic- or S-model. The flash time curve in the new Siros is controlled by broncolor's widely known ECTC technology, which also guarantees flash times of up to 1/13,000 s (t 0.5) and constant colors. Charging times of 0.02 up to 0.65 s at 400 joules as well as an enormous control range – up to 9 apertures and reducible to only 2 joules – round off the impressive performance of the S-highend-model.
 
Furthermore Siros is fully compatible with the extensive accessory range of light shapers that broncolor is so well known for and which offer limitless creative possibilities. Two of these light shapers have been especially developed for Siros: an umbrella reflector, which, combined with a lid, can also be used for protection during transport and an L40 reflector, optimized in size and, through a snap-in system, easily extendable with a honeycomb grid.
 
Handling and menu navigation are both easy and intuitive with Siros and are regulated through a single control dial, which allows for aperture adjustments in 1/10 steps or, by using the new twist function, in full apertures.
 
Brand-new app – bronControl – for all-round control
 
Also new with Siros is the bronControl app, which allows remote control of all functions. As soon as Siros has established a WiFi network, different devices in the studio or outdoors are recognized via multi-colored LEDs and can be controlled via a smartphone or tablet.
 
PocketWizard technology for undreamt-of possibilities
 
Siros is not only ideal as an addition to already existing studio flashlight setups. The compact devices with their integrated PocketWizard receivers allow for the integration in already existing setups but also open the gates to the world of HyperSync photography, which enables a shutter speed of up to 1/8000 s. The ideal pairing of Siros and PocketWizard allows for limitless creativity while remaining simple to operate.

Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens
B&H has the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens available for preorder. The price – $1,999.00 with free shipping.
 
This price point makes the new Sigma lens about twice as expensive as the Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD. It'll be interesting to see how the two lenses compare.

Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens
In case you didn't notice, the Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens is currently sitting at the top of the "Most Popular Lens" leaderboard (on the home page). Impressive image quality from a very long focal length zoom lens with a very reasonable price has driven the 150-600 VC's popularity.
 
The lens has become so popular that finding one in stock has become a challenge. Amazon states "Usually ships within 1 to 3 months" for this model. The 150-600 VC is available on eBay, but be prepared to pay a premium for it. That this lens has become difficult to find has led to theories that Tamron pulled the lens from shelves or stopped production of the lens to address a deficiency. The other report I'm receiving is that the latest models of this lens are autofocusing more accurately than the early models. (thanks Chris)
 
To clear things up, I contacted my Tamron rep. What I learned is that the firmware installed on this lens has indeed been updated; starting with models produced in May 2014. The firmware update was specific to the Canon-mount version and was designed to improve autofocus performance. Unless a dealer is sitting on old inventory, all lenses currently being shipped should have the updated firmware. Lenses with the original firmware can be sent to Tamron for the update.
 
The other clarification that I received was that unavailability of this lens is entirely due to demand exceeding supply. There have been no halts to production and no recalls issued.
 
If you want to add a Tamron 150-600mm VC Lens to your kit, preorder and be patient.
