Upper Saddle River, N.J. (May 23, 2016) – Manfrotto, a leading global innovator and manufacturer of premium photo, video and lighting support products and accessories, announces the launch of three new tripod bags: two versions which are 75cm long, padded and unpadded, and a smaller unpadded version which is 60cm long.
 
With the addition of these three latest models, the tripod bags range perfectly matches several Manfrotto photo tripods, including the latest 190Go! and 290 collections.
 
The asymmetric tapered shape allows photographers to store a tripod with the head attached. Tripod legs fit comfortably in the narrower end and extra space is allowed for the larger volume of the head at the wider end. Getting a tripod in and out of these bags is easy and quick due to the zipper which extends down to the full length of the bag, even where the head is stored. Each version features a strap for comfortable carrying on a shoulder.
 
The 75cm version is also available in the full-padded option. Thanks to the padding on the entire length of the bag, maximum protection of the tripod is guaranteed. The thermoform padding on the top also protects the tripod with head mounted.
 
Each bag is made with the highest quality materials: ballistic nylon that prevents the bag from tearing and abrasion, and an external coating that makes it protective and water-repellent.
 
The new tripod bags are now available nationwide:
 
Bag Model #MSRP
MB MBAG60N$29.99
MB MBAG75N$39.99
MB MBAG75PN$49.99

Image quality results from the Canon EOS 5Ds R and Canon EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 IS Lens Review.
 
While an f/2.8 max aperture for a prime lens may not grab your attention, this lens' image quality might. The 28 f/2.8 IS is regularly a decent value and the $100.00 instant reward makes it a great value.

The iamNikon blog has a very interesting article on the aerial photography of Dan Vojtech.
 
One of the most impressive shots from the article involves Vojtech using strobes placed in each plane flying in a mirror formation. The strobes are positioned to light the plane which is flying about 15 feet away (above/below). [Sean]

May 20, 2016 – TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that its D5 digital SLR camera is the recipient of the Camera GP (Grand Prix) 2016 Readers Award. The Camera Grand Prix is held by the Camera Journal Press Club (C.J.P.C. / Japan).
 
The Readers Award is presented to the camera that is selected through voting by users. Out of the nine times the Readers Award has been presented, Nikon digital SLR cameras have been the recipients of the award a total of seven times, proving that Nikon cameras are extremely popular with, and appreciated by, a great number of camera users.
 
Earlier this year, the D5 was also the recipient of the TIPA Awards 2016 Best DSLR Professional/Action awards, sponsored by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA).
 
Reasons the D5 was selected: A selection of comments from users
 
  • The D5 exhibits the absolute performance and presence of a flagship model. I am especially impressed with its unparalleled performance at high sensitivities, which greatly expands the possibilities for imaging expression.
  • I really like the fact that it is a still camera that offers a level of advancement never before seen with all major functions, including AF, AE, and high-sensitivity characteristics, and that it clearly expresses the direction cameras and technology will take in the future.
  • With features such as support for standard sensitivities as high as ISO 102400, advanced AF, and a touch screen monitor, this model seems indicative of what we can expect of flagship models in the future. In addition, the availability of two versions of the camera, one supporting XQD cards and one CompactFlash cards, clearly shows that Nikon took both existing and new users into consideration with development.
  • The excellence of this camera is something of which Japan can be extremely proud.
D5 primary features
 
  • A new-generation, 153-point AF system capable of capturing the intended subject under a wide variety of conditions
  • High-speed continuous shooting at up to approximately 12 fps with a viewfinder display that keeps the view through the lens incredibly stable for clear visibility
  • Consistently superior image quality, even with shooting at high sensitivities
  • Equipped with a 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) movie recording function that videographers will find very useful
  • Functions and performance that respond to a variety of on-site demands and achieve a fast workflow
