German artist Thorsten Brinkmann is a self-proclaimed serial collector. He works primarily with items from resale shops and junkyards, incorporating the found objects into his photography and site-specific installations. Wearing a trash can for a helmet and a fabric scrap for a vest, he is suddenly transformed into a seemingly noble character that mimics the style of paintings done by the old masters. In this short from Walley Films, watch how Brinkmann creates these whimsical self-portraits for his latest show at the Rice University Art Gallery in Houston, Texas.
Due to a trademark issue (with Foveon), Breakthrough Photography has renamed their "X3" to line "X4". While the change means nothing to the quality of the product, it could cause confusion if you were looking for the older product name as it no longer exists.
Note: The Canon version of the Vello FreeWave IR TTL Flash Commander is similar in functionality to the significantly more expensive Canon ST-E2 Speedlite Transmitter. On the plus side, the Vello Flash Commander features a rotating head which can come in handy under certain shooting conditions. However, a downside is that the Vello Flash Commander does not feature an AF Assist beam like the Canon ST-E2.

Note: This would be a great starter kit for anyone wishing to gain experience with off-camera flash. Just be sure to select the appropriate kit (Canon or Nikon) as the flash triggers are brand specific. [Sean]
Right now, the Canon EOS 5Ds R qualifies for a $300.00 instant savings. But in addition to the instant savings, B&H is throwing in a free WD 4TB Elements External Desktop Hard Drive ($149.00 value) via this special bundle deal.
I suppose B&H thought you might need some extra storage for all those 50.6 MP files, huh? [Sean]
I'll further explain and add commentary to the entire 15 sets (13 samples each) of results soon.
I'm totally loving this camera so far. I have photographed a couple of soccer games (including one under the lights) and a round of prom pictures with the 1D X II and very much look forward to a full sports schedule week ahead of me for further testing.
B&H has the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II available for preorder. Order the Premium Kit ($300 value for no extra cost at the moment).
