From Shutterstock:
 
NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2014 – Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a leading global provider of commercial digital imagery, recently announced that it has paid over $200 million in royalties to contributors since the company’s founding in 2003. With artists in over 100 countries, the milestone illustrates the dynamic global marketplace the company has built, and its ability to connect more than 55,000 artists to nearly 1 million image buyers around the world. Each time a customer licenses an image from Shutterstock, the contributing artist receives a royalty. More than 100 million images were licensed in 2013.
 
“This milestone is testament to the quality of content being created by Shutterstock’s contributors,” said Shutterstock’s VP Content Scott Braut. “Businesses of all sizes need images and we’re proud to provide opportunities for photographers, illustrators and videographers to earn money licensing their work through our marketplace.”
 
Shutterstock currently has over 33 million images and more than 1.5 million high-quality video clips, including a growing 4K video collection available for license. Last year, the company launched Shutterstock Stories: Profiles in Creativity, an artistic grant program that celebrates the work of its contributors.

Image quality, flare, distortion and vignetting test results along with some product photos have been added to the Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens Review page.
 
The Tamron 150-600 VC Lens vs. Canon 100-400mm IS Lens comparison is what many of us have been waiting for.
 
Especially for the price, I think that you are going to be very pleased with the image quality this lens delivers. I hope to have a full review of this lens completed in the near future.

This upgrade means that DxO Optics Pro 9 now supports the Nikon D3300, the brand’s latest entry-level DSLR, along with the Canon EOS M2. Of note, too, is that DxO Optics Pro v.1.3 also now works with the Panasonic DMC-FZ70 and the Samsung NX1000 and NX1100, thus completing support for the entire hybrid camera range.

DxO Optics Pro v9.1.3 has been enriched with new DxO Optics Modules: 264 new cameral/lens combinations have been added to the library, which today counts 17,400 available DxO Optics Modules.
 
Among the new lenses supported is the NIKKOR AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II — the upgraded standard zoom found in most of Nikon’s entry-level DSLR kits, as well as the Samsung NX 20-50mm F3.5-5.6 ED II.
 
DxO Optics Modules contain all of the information characterizing each camera and lens, thus enabling DxO Optics Pro 9 to automatically correct distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lens softness with an unrivaled level of quality.

From Nikon:
 
Thank you for choosing Nikon for your imaging needs.
 
Affected Products:
Nikon D600 Digital SLR Cameras
 
Some users of Nikon’s D600 D-SLR camera have reported the appearance of tiny spots on certain of their images. Not all users have experienced this issue. Nikon has thoroughly evaluated these reports and has determined that these spots are caused by dust particles which may become visible when the camera is used in certain circumstances and/or with certain settings. It is a well-known fact that the presence of dust particles cannot be completely avoided when using a D-SLR camera even after normal sensor cleaning procedures, because of a number of factors including components moving at high speeds when images are taken, the use of interchangeable lenses, and the different environments in which a D-SLR camera may be used. As part of its customer-service commitment, Nikon is providing a customer-service measure to reduce the potential impact of dust particles on images taken by its D600 D-SLR cameras.
 
The solution: Nikon is making available to all owners of D600 cameras (even if Nikon’s product warranty has expired) this customer-service measure, which includes the inspection, cleaning and replacement of the shutter assembly and related parts of your camera, FREE OF CHARGE as well as the cost of shipping D600 cameras to Nikon and their return to customers. Once again, please understand that regardless of this service, your D600 camera as is the case with all D-SLR cameras, will continue to require normal periodic sensor cleanings.
 
To have your D600 camera serviced free of charge please follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the Schedule Free Service link below.
  2. On the following pages, you will need to provide the serial number of your D600 camera and your contact information.
  3. Then, you will be prompted to create and print your Pre-paid UPS Return label and packing slip.
  4. In shipping, please secure the D600 camera in a plastic bag inside the shipping box with several inches of quality packing material on all sides of the D600 camera. Please send your D600 camera and packing slip only. Do not include any lenses, batteries, memory cards or other accessories. Please do not ship in the original display box (It will not be returned)
  5. Drop the shipping box off at any UPS facility. (Visit https://www.ups.com/dropoff for hours and locations.) You may also arrange to have your shipment collected by a UPS driver.
