Tamrac 5374 Adventure 74 Backpack
B&H has the Tamrac 5374 Adventure 74 Backpack available for $59.95 with free expedited shipping. Regularly $109.95.
 
Note from Sean: I own and use one of these backpacks all the time. When I want to carry most of my gear, I take the Tamrac 5588 Expedition 8x. But for all other times, I pack what I need into a Tamrac 5374 and hit the road running. It's been a very good bag for the outings that require less gear.
 
Don't get me wrong, though – you can stuff quite a bit into one of these bags. For my latest trip to Atlanta, GA, I planned on filming our family Christmas get-together with my DSLR gear yet I also wanted to be prepared to capture static images as well (just in case). Here's what I packed into the Tamrac 5374:
 
  • Canon EOS 7D Mark II with Battery Grip
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Battery Grip
  • Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L Tilt-Shift
  • Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM
  • Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
  • Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art
  • Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC
  • Canon 580EX Speedlite
  • Canon TC-80N3 Timer Remote
  • BlackRapid RS-Sport Extreme Strap
  • ND Filter and Step-up Rings
  • Flash Gels
  • Gaffer Tape
  • Microfiber Cloth
As you can see, this backpack can hold a decent amount of gear. ;-)

Nikon Europe Warns of Fraudulent D800E Cameras
From Nikon:
 
Notice regarding fraudulent Nikon D800E digital SLR (fraudulently modified D800) cameras
 
We have confirmed that there are cases in which D800E digital SLR cameras were received for repair, only to find that the cameras were actually fraudulently modified D800 cameras whose covers had been replaced with D800E covers. It seems that these fraudulently modified products are in circulation via Internet auctions and the like. As the Nikon warranty does not apply to fraudulently modified products, Nikon will not inspect or repair such products. In addition, Nikon cannot be held responsible in any way regarding the use of fraudulently modified products. Please take all necessary precautions to ensure the authenticity of a camera before purchasing one.
 
Identifying these fraudulently modified cameras
Display an image captured with your camera in the camera monitor. When the overview* display option is enabled in full-frame playback mode, the name of the camera used to capture the image is displayed in the top right corner. If "NIKON D800E" is displayed, your camera is an authentic D800E. If any other name is displayed, your camera is a fraudulent D800E.

*See the D800/D800E User's Manual for instructions on enabling overview display.

Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flash
From Profoto:
 
Get a perfect exposure at any aperture or shutter speed with Profoto's new solution for high-speed sync
 
December 15, 2014 – Up until now, HSS solutions have been either consistent but lacking in speed and power, or fast and powerful but inconsistent. On December 15, Profoto releases a new solution that has all of the benefits and none of the limitations.
 
High-Speed Sync (HSS) is the technical term for syncing flash with shutter speeds shorter than the so-called x-sync, typically 1/250 of a second. It is a useful tool for controlling ambient light and for freezing action. But there used to be limitations.
 
Current solutions for speedlights give you a fairly even exposure. But it does so at the expense of speed and power. Previous solutions for larger flashes were faster and more powerful. But the exposure could differ as much as 2 f-stops in a single shot.
 
Profoto’s new HSS solution for the B1 Off-Camera Flash has all of the benefits and none of the limitations. The B1 itself is about ten times as powerful as the average speedlight and fast enough to keep up with your camera. With the new HSS upgrade installed, you switch to HSS Mode with a simple button-press. You will then be able to shoot at shutter as fast as 1/8000 of a second.
 
But it does not stop there. Profoto HSS is a unique, patent-pending technology, providing an extremely fast series of flash pulses. What this means in practice is that you get an extremely consistent exposure with no measurable variation over the image.
 
In other words, Profoto HSS is fast, powerful and consistent. This opens up completely new light shaping possibilities for Profoto customers. For instance, you can now shoot with a large aperture in bright conditions to get a shallow depth of field and get that perfect deep blue sky. Or capture super crisp action in mixed light conditions without getting motion blur from ambient light.
 
Profoto HSS works for both Canon and Nikon and has been tested for all common camera models.
 
Profoto HSS is available through a firmware upgrade. Go to www.profoto.com and download it for free. Once installed, HSS Mode is activated with a simple button-press. It is very easy, and there is no need to change the flash bulb. Also note that you can use Profoto HSS with TTL, making it fast and easy to do fast paced action shots or daylight backlit portraits with large apertures.
 
B&H carries the Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flash and Air Remote TTL Trigger.
