Gitzo GT3542L Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs
From Gitzo:
 
We are proud to inform you about the official launch of our new Mountaineer tripods – Gitzo’s most popular, ‘all-purpose’ carbon tripod family.
 
Mountaineer tripods have been developed further to incorporate the latest Gitzo technology which increases rigidity, improves performance and ease of use for professional photographers.
 
Stiffer legs and structure
 
More than ever, our priority is to ensure that Gitzo tripods allow photographers to get sharper images no matter what weight of equipment, length of lens or duration of exposure is being used: that means making them as rigid as possible.
 
New Mountaineer tripods are more rigid than the preceding Carbon 6X models, thanks to the newly developed, innovative Carbon eXact tubes. The new tubing optimises fiber composition for each tube size, including HM (High Modulus) carbon fiber composition (a denser fiber made up of finer individual fibers) in the narrower tubes. Carbon eXact tubes have larger diameters that strengthen the tripods even further, particularly the narrower tubes used for the lower leg sections.
 
The Mountaineer top spider and column lock are also redesigned for greater rigidity.
 

 
Benefits of the new Mountaineer range
 
Stiffer legs and structure

  • Carbon eXact contains High Modulus carbon fiber and has larger tube diameters
  • The top spider and column lock are redesigned for enhanced rigidity
  • New models are significantly stiffer than predecessors and competitors

Enhanced usability and comfort

  • G-lock Ultra: softer to use, protects against dust or grit
  • New Ground Level Set and leg angle selectors are easier and faster to set up

B&H carries Gitzo tripods.

Nikon has published a compatibility notice regarding the EN-EL14a lithium-ion battery. In short, cameras compatible with the older EN-EL14 battery are compatible with the new EN-EL14a battery (although some require a firmware update).
 
What Nikon fails to mention in the compatibility notice is that upgrading your camera's firmware may cause your camera to be incompatible with third-party batteries.
 
From Nikon:
 
The EN-EL14a rechargeable Li-ion battery can be used in place of the EN-EL14 rechargeable Li-ion battery.
 
The EN-EL14a battery life has been improved by up to 20% compared to an EN-EL14 battery (depending on the camera model and shooting conditions). Both batteries can be charged using the MH-24 battery charger.
 
All cameras that currently use the EN-EL14 can also be used with the EN-EL14a. See the following for further information regarding EN-EL14a compatibility with each camera.
 
D5200, D5100, D3200, D3100, COOLPIX P7700- By upgrading firmware, EN-EL14a performance is maximized and more images can be captured (battery performance) when an EN-EL14a is used than when an EN-EL14 is used.

  • D5200 - Firmware C: 1.01 or later
  • D3200 - Firmware C: 1.02 or later
  • D5100 - Firmware A: 1.02/ B: 1.01 or later
  • D3100 - Firmware A :1.02/ B 1.01 or later
  • COOLPIX P7700 - Firmware version 1.3 or later
  • COOLPIX P7000 or P7100 - Although firmware enabling support for the EN-EL14a will not be released, the battery can be used with these cameras. However, the camera's battery indicator may quickly reach the half-charge point on its display.
  • COOLPIX P7800 - The camera already supports the EN-EL14a from the time it was initially released, so does not require a firmware update.
  • Nikon Df, D5300, D3300 - An EN-EL14a is included with purchase. The EN-EL14 can also be used with these cameras.

B&H carries the Nikon EN-EL14a battery.

Commercial photographer Thorsten Ott has created a six part video series explaining the use of various modifiers for indoor and outdoor portraiture.
 
If you're just getting into portrait lighting, this will be an especially good introduction into various lighting tools and techniques.
