For a limited time, Adorama has the ProOptic 4X4 (100mm) Filter Holder Foundation Kit available for $39.95 with free shipping. Regularly $69.95.
 
Product Features
 
  • Aviation-grade CNC process aluminum
  • Matte black frosted anti-reflective finish
  • Easy to use, compatible with 100mm wide and 2mm thick filters or round (86mm) camera filters
  • No vignette for wide angle lens larger than 18mm even when using 3 filters at once
Note from Sean: This is a really good deal. The LEE foundation kit costs about $90.00 and you still have to purchase an adapter ring to complete the kit. When adding ProOptic Foundation Kit to your cart, Adorama allows you to add an adapter ring up to 77mm at no additional charge (the 82mm adapter ring is $1.00) via the following screen.
 
I purchased the ProOptic 4X4 Filter Holder Foundation Kit (seen above on my 5D III) when we posted the deal on Oct. 30. I've used the filter holder several times since it arrived and I'm even more convinced now that this product is an excellent value (especially at this price). [Sean]

At least three of these accessories will fit in even a small Christmas stocking and the fourth will likely qualify as a stocking stuffer for a standard-sized sock. Having them in your kit will, for many, be worth the mostly stocking-stuffer-sized prices:
 
Super Clamp
Magic Arm
Double Ball Joint Head
Tripod Head Mounting Plate with Hex Stud
 
These reviews are primarily to highlight what I'm using and find useful, but ... being able to reference these items will be helpful for an article I hope to have ready for you on Monday.

In the wake of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, most manufacturers extended their already in-place [before the shopping holidays] rebates with only a few minor changes to a few of the Canon rebates.
 
One particular change worth nothing – the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM's previous $100.00 instant rebate has been doubled to $200.00.
 
As usual, the Canon DSLR rebates vary depending on whether your purchase a specific lens (or set of lenses) or the CS100 with the camera.
 
As far as Nikon is concerned, there are still a good number for instant rebates on their DSLR cameras; however, there aren't any lens rebates available at the moment aside from a $320.00 instant rebate on the Macro & Portrait Two Lens Kit (that I've found, at least).
 
Update: The Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM's rebate is actually $270.00 through Saturday, then it drops back down to $200.00 (by my understanding).

From Time.com:
"The moment you meet BB-8, you build up some form of weird human connection," says Marco Grob, who photographed the new Star Wars character for this week’s TIME cover. "It has one eye that has this really cute way of looking at you. It’s just incredible."
 
"For me, Star Wars is much more than only a film," Grob says. "Star Wars is hundreds of people who try to push the envelope. People who take enormous risks in creative and in technical aspects. They try to do things we’ve never seen before in a way nobody would have imagined to ever see before. And for me, it’s incredible.”
Is anyone else a little envious of Marco Grob right now? How cool would it have been to get that assignment? [Sean]

From Karl Taylor Photography:
 
In this video both myself and Urs Recher look at the techniques for combining fast exposures and long exposures to create a beautiful dance portraits where we reveal both the detail frozen and the motion blur recorded. To do this we use flash and HMI lighting.
 
Photography Shoot Technical Details
 
The HMI 400 W from the right with illuminates only the back of the model. In this way, the front and the face are not affected by this light and remain dark. Because of its position the background shouldn’t get any light from the HMI either.
 
The Siros light focused in the Para 133 can therefore guarantee an absolutely sharp picture of the model’s front and face if the flash duration is short enough. Here on the Siros it is set to t0.1 (min) of appox 1/4000 sec.
 
The exposure times were between ¼ and 1/2 a second and the camera is set to rear curtain sync meaning the flash fires at the end of the camera exposure time.
 
B&H carries Broncolor gear.
