Tamrac 5587 Expedition 7x Backpack
Use promo code TAMF1FtN at Focus Camera to get 20% off any Tamrac product.
 
Use this coupon for an excellent deal on the Tamrac 5587 Expedition 7x Backpack ($55.99 Off). I personally use the next slightly larger bag in the series – the 5588 – and I've been very happy with it. But the 5588 is probably too big for most people's needs. ;-) [Sean]

Nikon D610 DSLR Camera
eBay (via BigValueInc)h as the Nikon D610 DSLR Camera available for $1,716.79 with free shipping. Compare at $1,896.95.
 
Caveat Emptor:
Note that the camera deal listed here is not advertised as coming with a Nikon USA 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 99.3%. 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 list their auctions as "Daily Deals". We have had a good first-hand experience with them (here and here).

Pocketwizard Plus III in Bowens Yellow
From Pocketwizard:
 
Photographers benefit from seamless integration between flash, radio trigger and exposure and lighting control
 
White Plains, NY – February 28, 2014 – In a joint announcement, Bowens, PocketWizard and Sekonic have aligned to create a complete wireless triggering solution for electronic flashes that will be first introduced in the U.S. market. Now most Bowens Gemini monolights will accept an optional PocketWizard module, which enables photographers to wirelessly trigger their flash with industry-standard, and widely used PocketWizard radios and Sekonic light meters.
 
Compatible components within the system are Bowens Gemini 500R, 500Pro, 750Pro, 1000Pro & 1500Pro series of monolights with PocketWizard module, all existing PocketWizard radio’s and today’s Sekonic L-478DR and L-758DR exposure meters. In addition, other (earlier) Sekonic meters can be used with an optional PocketWizard transmitter. All take advantage of PocketWizard 32 channels and 4-zone system.
 
Bowens USA President, Jan Lederman, brought the three technology leaders together to create a powerful alliance for the photographic flash market. When asked what prompted this he responded, “With the rapid advancement of photographic technology in our digital world, it is a natural evolutionary step to marry these technologies. Our goal is to provide a complete wireless environment in which photographers have greater and more accurate control of lighting in a more effortless way.”
 
To commemorate the alliance, PocketWizard is introducing a new Plus III Transceiver in the “Bowens’ signature yellow” color.
 
Pricing and Availability
 
Bowens products are available for purchase and rent from a growing list of specialty camera and video retailers as well as rental houses across the United States.
 
B&H carries Bowens, Sekonic and Pocketwizard products.
