Adobe recently released Camera Raw 9.5 with support for the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II, 80D, T6, Nikon D5 & D500. Unfortunately, if you're using OS X 10.7 or 10.8, you'll want to hold off on installing the update.
 
From Adobe:
Camera Raw 9.5
 
We have a critical issue with support on OSX 10.7 and OSX 10.8. Please continue using Camera Raw 9.4 until we issue an update that resolves the issue.

If you are a Netflix subscriber, you can't miss seeing Finding Vivian Maier.
 
The 2013 documentary attempts to shed light on the unknown-in-her-lifetime, but completely brilliant street photographer Vivian Maier. From FindingVivianMaier.com:
Finding Vivian Maier is the critically acclaimed documentary about a mysterious nanny, who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that were hidden in storage lockers and, discovered decades later, is now among the 20th century’s greatest photographers. Directed by John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never before seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.
 
Maier’s massive body of work would come to light when in 2007 her work was discovered at a local thrift auction house on Chicago’s Northwest Side. From there, it would eventually impact the world over and change the life of the man who championed her work and brought it to the public eye, John Maloof.
 
Currently, Vivian Maier’s body of work is being archived and cataloged for the enjoyment of others and for future generations. John Maloof is at the core of this project after reconstructing most of the archive, having been previously dispersed to the various buyers attending that auction. Now, with roughly 90% of her archive reconstructed, Vivian’s work is part of a renaissance in interest in the art of Street Photography.
Watch Finding Vivian Maier on Netflix.

If you are using the WR-1 with a WR-R10, have a Nikon-authorized service representative update the WR-R10 to firmware version 3.00.

Wireless Remote Controller WR-R10 Firmware v.3.00
 
Firmware Ver. 3.00 upgrade details
 
Shooting using radio-controlled advanced wireless lighting (hereafter "radio AWL") requires a digital SLR camera and Speedlight that support radio AWL, as well as a WR-R10. However, WR-R10s running a version of firmware prior to Ver. 3.00 do not support radio AWL. The modifications indicated below, including support for radio AWL, will be enabled with this firmware upgrade.
 
Modifications enabled with firmware Ver. 3.00
 
  • Support for radio AWL has been added.
  • Support for the D5 and D500 function that enables Link Mode (Pairing or PIN) for radio AWL has been added.
  • Support for the D5 and D500 function that enables or disables the status LEDs on the WR-R10 has been added.
  • The maximum number of devices with which the WR-R10 can be paired has been changed from 64 devices to 32.
Requesting firmware upgrade
Those who would like to have their WR-R10 firmware upgraded to enable support for radio AWL may take or send their WR-R10 to a Nikon authorized Service Center where the firmware will be upgraded free of charge.
 
Please direct inquiries regarding this matter to your nearest Image Nikon Service Center or create a Free Service Returns Request.

From Tamron USA:
 
February 22, 2016, Commack, New York - Tamron, a leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, announces the launch of the SP 85mm F/1.8 Di VC USD (Model F016), the world's firs fast-aperture lens with VC (Vibration Compensation). Tamron's acclaimed VC makes it possible to take handheld photographs in dim light or at night. The 85mm SP lens uses LD (Low Dispersion) and XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) glass elements in the optical design to minimize color fringing and to achieve sharp and clear image quality with high-fidelity color. It also achieves attractive bokeh that draws attention to the image foreground subject. In addition, Moisture-Resistant Construction has been added to prevent intrusion of moisture, and a highly durable Fluorine Coating has been applied to the top element surface to prevent condensation and repel smudge-causing substances. This new lens joins the 35mm F/1.8, 45mm F/1.8 and 90mm Macro in a lineup of SP series prime lenses that has been expanding since 2015.
 
The lens will be on sale on March 24th in Canon and Nikon at $749.00.
