With its 15 stops of light-reducing power, the Super Stopper sits at the top of the Stopper family, joining the Big and Little Stoppers in the long-exposure photography revolution.
The Super Stopper is designed for use in bright conditions, during the middle of the day – a time that’s traditionally considered unsuitable for photography because of the harsh, contrasty nature of the light.
However, with the Super Stopper filter fitted, the softness that arises from any movement contrasts pleasingly with any areas of bright light, creating an effect rarely seen in photography before now.
Like all the filters in the Stopper family, the Super Stopper is constructed from the high-quality optical glass and is supplied in a metal case for protection. It has only a minimal colour cast that is easily corrected in postproduction.
The exposure guide chart below allows you to find out the extremes to which photographers can now take their long exposures.

B&H will carry the LEE Filters 150 x 150mm SW150 Super Stopper.

From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
Weddings can be the most important day of a couple’s life, and the photographic memories are a wonderful gift and keepsake. In this article series by Liza Gershman, you will learn valuable information for photographing weddings. Liza provides important tips from her extensive experience, and discusses preparation, organization, and explains traditional wedding images that will aid you in your own wedding photography.
Articles posted thus far:
We posted Liza Gershman's first article "Top Tips for Great Wedding Photos" a couple of weeks ago. At the time, however, we didn't realize the article was intended to be part of a larger series. It appears that more articles will be added over time covering many different aspects of wedding photography.

From Profoto:
Profoto releases collapsible, more portable version of the classic Beauty Dish
When the Profoto Softlight Reflector was released in 1980, fashion photographers soon nicknamed it “The Beauty Dish” due to its unique ability to bring out the beauty of the model. Since then it has grown to become one of the most iconic tools for creating a creamy yet crisp light, often referred to as a “beauty light”.
Now, Profoto releases a new version of this classic. The new version is named OCF Beauty Dish and is a collapsible, more portable version of the original.
The main difference is that the OCF Beauty Dish is not made of metal but high-quality fabrics. When collapsed, it is stored in a carrying bag that fits in a small backpack. Mounting the OCF Beauty Dish is quick and easy too, thanks to a clever, patent-pending design that allows you to snap it onto the OCF Speedring without having to bend and fumble with the rods. The entire tool, including speedring and deflector plate, weighs a mere 0.48 kg (1.1 lbs.). When mounted, the OCF Beauty Dish has a diameter of 56 cm (2').
The OCF Beauty Dish is available in two versions: white and silver. The white version delivers a softer and slightly more even light than its silver counterpart, while the silver version delivers a bit more punch and contrast. Both versions are delivered with deflector plate, diffuser and carrying bag.
Being a fully integrated part of Profoto’s Off-Camera Flash system, the OCF Beauty Dish can be used with the B1 and the B2 O -Camera Flashes, as well as the new OCF Gels. Note that it may not be used with any other Profoto flash due to heat issues.
The OCF Beauty Dish is available from March 7 at a recommend price of €160/$179. The OCF Speedring is bought separately.
The OCF Beauty Dish is also included in a special offer available as of today – buy a B1 or B2 Off-Camera Flash kit before June 7, and get the OCF Beauty Dish White 2’ and an OCF Speedring for free.
B&H carries the Profoto OCF Beauty Dish.

From Canon USA:
Liebman listed in top ten “influential movers and shakers” by Long Island Press for fifth straight year
Mar 4, 2016 – MELVILLE, N.Y. – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce that Seymour Liebman, executive vice president, chief administrative officer and general counsel of Canon U.S.A., Inc., has been ranked fifth among Long Island’s 50 most influential leaders as part of the Long Island Press’ “Power List.” This is the fifth consecutive year that Mr. Liebman, who also serves as senior executive officer of Canon Inc., and vice chairman of Canon Solutions America, Inc., has both made the list and been placed within the top 10.
“To once again be named alongside these influential leaders in our area is truly an honor that I accept with tremendous gratitude,” said Liebman. “This distinction is a testament to the success of Canon and the great work that everyone continues to do here. I congratulate my fellow honorees and thank the Long Island Press for this prestigious distinction.”
Mr. Liebman accepted the award alongside fellow honorees at a special reception event, hosted this year at Canon U.S.A.’s headquarters in Melville, New York. For thirteen years, the Long Island Press “Power List” has been a collection of influential individuals throughout the fields of business, politics, education, healthcare and not-for-profit across Long Island. Honorees are selected from hundreds of potential candidates by the Long Island Press’ editorial staff based on their impact on Long Island over the past year.
In his current position, Mr. Liebman is responsible for legal affairs and corporate administration functions for Canon Americas. Currently, Mr. Liebman serves as vice chairman of Canon Solutions America, a wholly owned subsidiary that provides sales and support for Canon and Océ hardware, software and services targeting general office, production print and large format markets in the United States. Mr. Liebman's leadership continues to help strengthen the Company's position as an imaging industry leader.
In conjunction with his roles at Canon U.S.A., Inc. and Canon Inc., Mr. Liebman serves as a board member for various local councils and associations including the Touro Law Center where he serves on the Board of Governors, the Long Island Association Board of Directors, the Information Technology Industry Council and the Council of Overseers for the Tilles Center.
From Sean: Does anyone else think it's odd that a company that is famous for manufacturing DSLR cameras and lenses fails to include a headshot of the main subject with its press release?

The previous round of Tamron rebates ended at the beginning of this month. The good news is that Tamron has another rebate program in place runing from March 1 to April 30. The bad news – many of the previous mail-in rebate values are lower than before.
There is one notable exception, though – the Tamron 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD's rebate actually doubled (from $100.00 to $200.00).
Note: The Tamron 16-300 F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD and 150-600 Di VC USD feature instant (not mail-in) rebates.
