Zeiss Milvus 100mm f/2M Lens
Image quality results have been added to the Zeiss Milvus 100mm f/2M Lens page.
Image sharpness, while extremely good, is not alone going to drive many upgrades from the Zeiss 100mm f/2 Macro Lens because ... it was already great. However, image sharpness is not going to impede anyone considering the purchase of this new Milvus lens as it is also a great one.
B&H has the Zeiss Milvus 100mm f/2M Lens in stock.

Fall Photography Tips: Shoot from above
As trees are usually much taller than us, it is common is for us to look upward at leaves or minimally view them from a side perspective. Also typical is for the leaves to be facing, at least to some degree, upward and for the light to be reaching the leaves most strongly from above. While photographing glowing backlit leaves from underneath is commonly recommended (and a good tactic), the top of leaves generally have the strongest color with that color facing the light. Thus, capturing the best leaf color in the best light often means photographing the top of leaves.
Because most leaves (on trees at least) are higher than us, moving in close to the tree can diminish the amount of color seen. Moving farther away, unless that distance means a lower elevation, can provide a more colorful view of a tree by simply lowering the angle of view. Better is to get a higher vantage point. This means going up on a hill, up on a deck, up in a building (shooting from an open window for example), up on a ladder, etc.
A photo accessory that I've long considered acquiring, one that would help greatly in this regard, is a Bucket Truck. I know, you think I'm kidding, right? Not so. I think having such a truck would be a competitive advantage and I am always seeing locations where I could make use of one.
I don't know if that idea will ever come to fruition for me, but more popular is the use of drones. While the rules and regulations book for use of these devices is still being written, drones can get to many locations that would previously have required a bucket truck, crane or helicopter. Getting above the leaves is no problem for a drone.
If moving up means moving back, a longer focal length lens may be desired to keep the same framing and that the perspective will change should not be overlooked.
I was evaluating the Tamron 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens and while looking down the steep hill from our house, a beech tree with various shades of yellow and salmon-colored leaves caught my eye. At 35mm, the tree was tiny in the frame, so I went down to it. The closer I got, the less I was noticing the color patterns that initially caught my attention and the more I was looking across the side of the leaves, leaving the bare woods showing through the color. While still beautiful, this was not the image I had envisioned from the top of the hill.
I took some photos that I liked at 35mm, but then went back to the house to mount the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens. With the narrower angle of view, I could easily fill the frame with color and the downward view on the leaves left few holes into the background.
The next time you are looking at beautiful fall foliage, consider moving to a position that affords a downward view to maximize the color available to you.

X-Rite ColorChecker Video Series
From X-Rite:
Reduces editing time, improves color balance and control, eases matching of multiple cameras
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., October 22, 2015 - X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, today announced that it is launching two new products in its popular ColorChecker series. ColorChecker Video and ColorChecker Passport Video targets reduce video editing time, improve color balance control, make it easier to match multiple cameras and simplify editing for mixed lighting conditions.
“These two new products are the natural extension of the ColorChecker family that has been used for years by photo and imaging professionals and enthusiasts alike.”, said Chris Winczewski, X-Rite’s Vice President of Product Marketing, “Whether filmmakers do their own color grading or engage a colorist, whether they shoot or direct, they’ll find our new products invaluable tools that easily integrate into their daily work process. This is the first time a color target solution has been available to the burgeoning video market that is functional and affordable for anyone involved with producing or editing video. When using ColorChecker Video or ColorChecker Passport Video, the production workflow is faster, more consistent and more balanced, and users can more quickly get to an ideal color balance for developing their creative look.”
40-Year Heritage
The ColorChecker brand from X-Rite has enjoyed a positive reputation in the photo market for nearly 40 years. Now, the ColorChecker targets for video bring that unique color science to the world of video, delivering versatility on set and improved productivity in editing. Professionals and hobbyists using Adobe Premiere, Apple Final Cut Pro, DaVinci Resolve, Avid and other video editing software will be able to take advantage of ColorChecker targets specifically tuned for video production.
The Details
The new X-Rite ColorChecker Video targets are available in two forms to deliverconsistent, predictable and repeatable results, frame to frame and camera tocamera.
  • ColorChecker Passport Video delivers all-in-one pocket-sized convenience in a rugged hard case with four different targets:
    • A color reference for evaluating specific chromatic colors aligned with video production, including skin tones, gray balance and highlights and shadows.
    • White balance for creating a consistent neutral white point, eliminating the need to correct each frame later.
    • 3-step grayscale target that includes white highlight, 40 IRE midtone gray and saturated black references.
    • A focus target that facilitates center and edge focus.
  • ColorChecker Video’s larger format is great for camera checks, and for wider shots, both in studio and on location. It includes:
    • Two series of grayscale patches: 7 smaller patches for even gray balance with extra steps close to the highlight and shadow regions, and 4 larger gray level rectangles, including a high gloss black, that are easily recognized by the camera,
    • A range of skin tone patches from light to dark along the outer edge for easy alignment.
    • A series of saturated and desaturated chromatic colors allowing for appropriate color and saturation adjustments.
    • A full size white balance target on the reverse side.
“Achieving proper exposure in video can be challenging,” Winczewski adds. “ColorChecker Video targets help you quickly dial in an exposure that will give your editor or colorist an easier time matching cameras or lighting conditions in post-production. And since all cameras, even of the same make and model, can have variations in the way they reproduce color, ColorChecker Video targets allow you to evaluate how your camera will capture color in any given scene so you can adjust accordingly. We are very excited to be able to make this capability available to the broader video market.”
Color Finale Plug-In for Final Cut
Color Grading Central’s Color Finale plug-in for Apple Final Cut Pro X will be supporting ColorChecker Video targets in the fourth quarter of 2015. “Color Finale offers a brand-new set of industry standard grading tools for Final Cut Pro X,” said Denver Riddle, President of Color Grading Central. “We are totally thrilled to integrate the ColorChecker Video targets into Final Cut Pro X through Color Finale because of what it will mean for the filmmaker. Simply placing the ColorChecker in the beginning of shots and then using the Color Finale plugin takes all the guesswork out of primary color correction. This means less time spent fidgeting with corrections and more time focused on creating looks and beautiful images that enhance the story. With Color Finale and the ColorChecker Video targets you can feel confident that you’re getting ‘true as shot’ coloraccurate images that springboard your creativity.”
B&H has the X-Rite ColorChecker Video products available for preorder.

From RocketJump Film School YouTube Channel:
Here's a quick, cheap way to create a ghost effect, in-camera, without any VFX! Also known as "Pepper's Ghost", this effect has been around for ages, and is still used today. Disneyland's "Haunted Mansion" and the Hogwarts Express at Universal Studios both use this effect, and a modified version is still used in modern tele-prompters.
Materials Needed:
  • A dark, low-light scene with 2 light sources
  • Large pane of glass (or plexiglass) held up by a stand or clamps
  • Black blankets or fabric to hang behind your ghost
  • Camera

From Canon USA:
Professional photographers are obsessed over the details, but we wanted to find out how obsessed. We invited three people to analyze the same print and used eye-tracking technology to trace every eye movement they made. In the end, it was clear, a photographer's obsession is unmatched. Luckily, there's a printer that's equally obsessed - the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000.
B&H has the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 Professional Inkjet Printer available for preorder.

General Purpose Add-Ons to Get You Over the Expedited Shipping Threshold
by Sean Setters
Has this ever happened to you?
You want to purchase something from B&H, but its value doesn't put it over the free Expedited Shipping threshold? While the item may qualify for free standard shipping, getting my newly purchased gear sooner rather than later is my personal preference (I might be a tad impatient).
With that in mind we've developed a list of relatively inexpensive items that may be less practical when purchased on their own, but instead can help push you over the Expedited Shipping threshold when bundling with other purchases.

Devek Gaffer Tape 1in x 10yd Black

1) Gaffer Tape
This stuff is a no-brainer. Gaffer tape is a photographer's best friend. It's strong, peels away without making a mess and is even reusable (to some degree). It comes in a variety of widths, lengths and colors and having a roll on hand can literally save a shoot. If we listed all the ways we've used gaffer tape over the years, this post would turn into a Potter-like epic.
If you don't have any gaffer tape, add some to your cart. If you already have gaffer tape, adding another roll to your inventory is still probably a good idea.

Canon E 77 II 77mm Lens Cap

2) Lens Cap/Body Cap
If it's been a while since you've purchased a new Canon lens, then you're missing out on Canon's new, very convenient center pinch lens caps. The new lens caps are a worthwhile investment especially if you typically have a lens hood mounted to your glass.
Don't want to shell out for the Canon-branded lens caps? Third-party center pinch lens caps are also available at a significantly lower cost.
And while we're on the subject of "caps," it's not a bad idea to keep extra body or rear lens caps on hand in case you lose one (I can't tell you how many times I've misplaced a body cap).

Vello ET 65III Dedicated Lens Hood

3) Third-Party Lens Hood
A lens hood is an excellent accessory to add to your kit if your lens(es) did not come with one. Not only can they prevent lens flare in your images, they can also help protect your lens's front element from impact. Typically speaking, Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) lens hoods are pricey. However, as lens hoods are typically easy to design and relatively inexpensive to manufacture, purchasing a third-party lens hood makes a lot of sense. Third-party lens hoods may not fit quite as well as the OEM ones and they may lack special features (such as interior flocking), but otherwise [typically] work just as well as their more expensive counterparts.
How much can you save by purchasing a third-part lens hood? The amount varies widely, but here's a good example: the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM uses the ET-67 Lens Hood which will set you back $36.00 for the OEM version; the third-party Vello hood is only $14.95.

Vello LCD SCreen Protector Ultra

4) LCD Screen Protector
There are few things I loathe more than a scratched LCD screen; that's why nearly all my electronic devices (including cameras) have a high quality screen protector in place. I specify "high quality" because there are a lot of low quality (less durable, less clear) screen protectors out there.
I've personally used dozens of screen protectors over the years with various levels of satisfaction. My current personal favorites for camera LCD screen protectors are the Vello LCD Screen Protector Ultra series and the slightly cheaper Vello Glass LCD Screen Protectors. The former is a perfectly-sized piece of transparent optical glass while the latter has a small black frame around the edge that shows branding and the protector model number (but the frame isn't distracting in my opinion).

Sensei 62 77mm Filter Wrench Set

5) Filter Wrenches
If you've ever experienced stuck filters (especially if one of them is a circular polarizer), then you'll likely already know the true value of these inexpensive tools. Filter wrenches take up very little room in your gear bag and can save you the huge headache of dealing with filters that are stuck together while you're on a shoot. If these angst avoiding tools are not already a part of your kit, you'd be wise to bundle them with your next purchase.

Giottos Rocket Blaster Dust Removal Tool Medium

6) Rocket Blower
This is another one of those must-have tools that ranks up there with gaffer tape and a microfiber cloth – the Rocket Blower. Regular use of a Rocket Blower can help keep your sensor clean of dust and debris that may impact image quality with the result of time consuming post-processing needed to remove the distracting artifacts.
Need to create high quality product images? The Rocket Blower can help you remove dust from the items so that your images look more professional. Indeed, using a Rocket Blower is Bryan's first step when creating the product images used for this site. If a Rocket Blower is missing from your kit, bundling one with your next purchase may be a smart way to surpass the Expedited Shipping threshold.

Ruggard Desiccant Silica Gel Pack - Metal Case

7) Desiccant (Silica Gel Packs)
Keeping a desiccant (or two) with your camera gear can help prevent the growth of mold and fungus which can [understandably] degrade image quality and significantly reduce the resale value of your equipment. The most well-known and widely available type of consumer desiccant is Silica Gel which usually comes in single-use packs or reusable canisters that are reactivated by heat (usually an oven).
My suggestion - buy both. Keep the reusable desiccant with your gear stored at home and throw a couple of single-use packs in your gear bags (and replace periodically) for the ultimate in moisture protection.

Delta 1 Gray Card 8x10in

8) Gray Card
If you're unfamiliar with what a gray card can do for you, Bryan's Gray Card review written several years ago is just as relevant today as it was then. The short version: a gray card can help you set a custom white balance in-camera (reducing post-processing) as well as assist in determining exposure values based on a meter reading off the card.
I'm finding a gray card to be indispensable when shooting Super Color IRs as getting the correct white balance in-camera makes post-processing so much easier. One really nice thing about the 8x10" gray card is that it can easily be stored in your camera bag's laptop compartment (if the bag has one) which helps protect the gray card while also allowing it to be nearby whenever you need it.

Vello RS C2II Wired Remote Switch for Select Canon 3 Pin Cameras

Third Party Wired Remote Switch
A Remote Switch is a simple tool that allows you to trigger your camera's shutter without touching the shutter button. It's not as handy as an intervalometer (an intervalometer can do everything a switch can do and much more), but if you don't need the intervalometer's additional functionality, the remote switch is a good item to have at your disposal.
The remote switch can prove especially beneficial if photographing young children by allowing you to make eye contact with the subject(s) while triggering the camera from a short distance away from the camera. The remote switch can also be helpful in bulb mode because the shutter can be locked for an indefinite period of time and released without ever having to touch the camera.

Oben Tripod Hammock

Oben Tripod Hammock
Full Disclosure: I do not actually own this product... yet. I ran across the Oben Tripod Hammock a few days ago and I thought it was a really interesting, novel piece of gear. The hammock is suspended by the legs of your tripod and can be used hold filters, lenses, microfiber clothes, or anything else you might need while shooting from a fixed location. Even if your tripod features a hook on the center column, you may even prefer to use the hammock for your ballast needs as it will be less susceptible to wind.
For those reasons, I'll be adding this item to my next B&H purchase that, without it, would not qualify for free expedited shipping. ;-)
So that's 10 general purpose add-ons you can use to help qualify for free expedited shipping. What do you think? Any additional suggestions?

Fall Photography Tips: The Isolation Technique
I have to confess. I'm a fall leaf color addict. If the leaves have changed to their fall colors, I'm struggling to resist being outdoors 100% of the daylight hours with a camera in my hands. Fortunately, I don't have to go far from home to find some of the best color available anywhere.
Even with colorful trees being easy to find, photographing the fall color can be very challenging and one of those challenges is to create a compelling composition. Many of the most-brilliantly colored local trees, primarily old maples, are found in town, where houses and other buildings, power lines, signs, etc. interfere with the natural look I'm typically seeking. A picture of a complete tree may capture the color, but the likelihood of something undesirable being in the frame is quite high. Even in the countryside, the ideal trees can be difficult to work into great compositions for a variety of reasons including a lack of supporting elements.
One fall foliage technique I like to use is isolation of the colorful leaves of one tree with other parts of the same tree or another tree filling the rest of the frame. Find an attractive leaf or set of leaves that are in good condition and then determine what could be a good background for the composition.
Determine the focal length of your lens based on how large the foreground leaves should be in relation to the selected background. The focal length decision will also be affected by how large the selected background is and the space you have to work in with a longer focal length requiring less background area needed. The longer the focal length selected, the easier it will be to make the background blurred and of course, the vice versa is also true.
Determine the aperture used based on how much depth of field is desired with a very wide aperture capable of putting the background into a primary-subject-isolating blur. Also note that a wider aperture makes a faster shutter speed easier to obtain (at a lower ISO setting) and a faster shutter speed may be necessary to stop any wind-imparted motion of the primary subject leaf or leaves.
Don't stop with your first setup. Continue to refine the shot until you have it perfected. Then find another composition to work on.
The brilliantly colored maple tree in this picture was on the corner of an in-town street intersection with power lines and houses directly behind it. I moved in close to the foreground leaves and aligned the angle of view with the lines created by the trunks and limbs. The backlit leaves on the other side of the tree and some green grass across the street complete the composition. The result is a brilliantly colored fall photo that is, at least somewhat, unique.
While photo trips to grand landscapes with brilliantly colored trees are awesome, knowing the isolation technique can land great fall foliage images much closer to home (for many of us) and in many more locations (for all of us).
A larger version of this image is available on Flickr, Google+, 500px and Facebook. Also, if reading from a news feed reader, click through to see the framed image.

Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4 Lens
Image quality results have been added to the Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4 Lens page.
While I gave the "Most Beautiful Lens" title to the Zeiss Milvus 21mm f/2.8 Lens, the Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4 Lens is not far behind it on my list. This lens feels at least as nice in hand as it looks in the pictures.
The Milvus update, including a new optical design, has been very good to Zeiss' 50mm f/1.4 in terms of image quality as well. Here is the new vs. old Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 comparison. While the Milvus 50 is not as crazy-good optically as the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 Lens, it costs far less. And it competes well in many of the other relevant comparisons:
