LensTag App Logo
Lenstag, a website devoted to protecting your camera gear, has just released it's newest tool in the fight against theft - the Lenstag App for iOS and Android.
The Lenstag App allows you to register your own gear and check the serial numbers of cameras/lenses you are considering purchasing to see if the items in question have been flagged as stolen in the Lenstag system.
And if the worst happens to you, the Lenstag App allows you to quickly flag your gear as stolen from your mobile device.
For what it's worth, all my cameras and lenses are registered with Lenstag. I highly recommend taking advantage of this free, valuable service. Check out the Lenstag website for more information. [Sean]

CoolTweak Logo
Yann Kerangueven, the author of CoolTweak asked if I wanted to try a handy piece of software that our site visitors might be interested in. Once I started reading about CoolTweak, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try it out.
For the last couple of years I've been using a program called Faststone Photo Resizer to quickly resize photos for posting to social media or emailing. And I've been very happy with it – until now. CoolTweak is my new favorite [quick] resizing tool.
Installing CoolTweak adds the option to resize photos with a simple right-click action. But that's not all – you can also share your images to social media sites or add your watermark with a right-click action. You even have the ability to modify the output options to customize each right-click action to suit your needs.
So far, I've really enjoyed using CoolTweak. There's only one feature I'd like to see added – the option to dynamically change the size and placement of your watermark image based on the size of the image it's being applied to. Right now, you'd have to create different watermark presets based on specific image sizes or do it manually each time. I've contacted the developer and hope it's a feature he can implement in the near future.
Oh, and here's my recommendation for getting high quality images on Facebook – create a custom preset that uploads images that are 1024 (or 2048) pixels on the long side with a quality setting of 98 or higher. That seems to work really well for Facebook uploads.
From CoolTweak:
Everything is just a click away with CoolTweak !
Resizing, adding watermarks and sharing your pictures on social networks has never been so easy with COOLTWEAK.
Completely free, this smart software pops directly from the right-click contextual menu of all your images and process them in an trice.
No more time wasted, process all your files with a single click. All these very handy features make COOLTWEAK an essential tool to have.
Best of all, you can customize and manage all the menus and their actions with a really intuitive menu editor. Change them at will and build the menu you like.
Don't wait any longer to get your life simpler, let COOLTWEAK handle all the tedious tasks for you.
Resizing and sharing your photos from a single click... Sounds good to you ?
We often need to share pictures around us and we usually have to face the painful problem of reducing their weight before we can send them. For most of us, that is the beginning of lots of troubles and wasted hours, resizing one picture at a time with Microsoft Paint.
Fortunately those days are gone ! Let COOLTWEAK handle repetitive processing and watch it do this work for you in seconds. A single right-click on your pictures folder and voila.
Even better, it can publish your pictures on main social networks with the same ease.
Just build the right-click menu that suits you
COOLTWEAK is a mighty tool but keeps it simple.
You have the full control of what will be shown in your right-click menu. It comes out the box with a wide range of actions that you can customize any time you want to fit your needs.
Adding a new menu by choosing what action it will complete is an easy task thanks to COOLTWEAK menu editor. You can create an action (from the simplest to the most sophisticated one) and then make it appear in the right-click menu immediately.
(Everyday) Life saving features
Be able to manage ourselves right-click menu's contents, we honestly wonder why it has never been invented before ! All your shortcuts are anytime just a click away, that is the true strength of COOLTWEAK.
COOLTWEAK is a powerful toolbox that enables you to resize your pictures, protect them with a watermark and share them on main social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Picasa/Google+, Flickr et 500px.com).
You can even combine several operations to create your own « tweaks » (actions).
The time savings are real ! Just give COOLTWEAK a try and you will probably love it (and wish you had installed it way earlier).
Everything comes with a price... It’s 100% free
COOLTWEAK is a personal initiative designed to provide a free but valuable tool for Microsoft Windows users.
The license is entirely free, there is no advertising and no personal data gathering.

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending December 14th, 2013.
In the news...
On Tuesday, we learned that Nikon’s newest firmware updates may have contained an undocumented modification. Users report cameras with the new firmwares no longer work with 3rd party batteries. Did Nikon purposefully attempt to kill 3rd party battery compatibility or was this an unanticipated side effect of the updates?
On a related note, we shared our own experience with 3rd party batteries being incompatible with Canon’s newest LC-E6 battery chargers. That got us wondering – did Nikon take a page out of Canon’s playbook?
On Thursday, we learned about Zeiss’s plans produce an 85mm f/1.4 OTUS lens. Zeiss outed the lens’s development via a Facebook comment displayed on their own website.
In site news and reviews...
On Tuesday, we posted a full review of the Pocketwizard PlusX Radio Transceivers. In short, the PlusX transceivers offer a rugged build quality with a limited, yet attractive feature set that will surely grow Pocketwizard’s fan base.
On Wednesday, we posted our standard image quality test results for the Sigma 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens. Tests available for viewing include ISO resolution, vignetting and distortion [flare results are also available].
On Thursday, Bryan posted his full review of the Sigma 24-105mm f/4.0 DG OS HSM Art Lens. To sum up the review, Sigma’s new 24-105mm lens follows in step with all their recent Global Vision releases – meaning excellent image quality, sound build quality and a moderate price tag. Check out Bryan’s review for all the details.
And, for our deal of the week…
On Sunday, we posted a deal from BuyDig.com where you could get a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM Lens for $1,679.00 after rebate. That’s a $620.00 savings off the normal MSRP.
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"

  • Adobe exited Q4 with 1 million 439 thousand paid Creative Cloud subscriptions, an increase of 402 thousand when compared to the number of subscriptions as of the end of Q3 fiscal year 2013, and enterprise adoption of Creative Cloud was stronger than expected.
  • Creative Annualized Recurring Revenue (“ARR”) grew to $768 million, and total Digital Media ARR grew to $911 million.
  • Adobe Marketing Cloud quarterly revenue was $316.2 million, representing 38 percent year-over-year growth.

Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens
Cutting-edge eBAND Coating and three LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements deliver superior imaging performance, while the latest built-in VC (Vibration Compensation) system broadens users’ horizons in achieving sharper handheld photographs.
November 26, 2013, Saitama, Japan - Tamron Co., Ltd., a leading manufacturer of precision optics, has announced the release of an innovative ultra-telephoto zoom lens with a focal length range of 150mm to 600mm for full-frame and APS-C format DSLR cameras.
Tamron’s previously announced 200-500mm (Model A08), still currently available, is a popular, compact, easy-to-use ultra-telephoto zoom lens, but customers have shown great interest in having a lens that provide an even greater focal length range.
This all-new ultra-telephoto zoom lens features VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization, speedy, precise USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), state-of-the-art eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating, which significantly reduces the unwanted light reflections that cause flare and ghosting, and, in addition a sophisticated and stylish new external finish.
Its 4x ultra-telephoto zoom capabilities, with a focal length range from 150mm to 600mm, enhance the creative potential of telephoto photography, a captivating feature for all photographers, particularly nature, wildlife, and sports shooters.

  • 4x ultra-telephoto zoom lens with a focal length range of 150mm to 600mm
    The focal length range of this lens was extended by 50mm on the wide-angle side and 100mm on the telephoto side compared to the existing model (Model A08), making it possible to take even more striking photographs of birds, wildlife, sports, and other distant subjects. Mounted on APS-C DSLR cameras, it has a stunning equivalent focal length range of 233mm to 930mm, almost to 1000mm.
  • World class image quality
    Employing 20 elements in 13 groups and boasting an advanced optical design, it delivers a superior balance of resolution and contrast for sharp, clear images. The front group contains three LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements (two in the first group, one in the third) for enhanced optical correction effectiveness, enabling the lens to thoroughly compensate for on-axis aberrations at the telephoto end. The lens also adopts eBAND Coating, developed from state-of-the-art coating technologies, and conventional BBAR(Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating to greatly suppress ghosting and flare even when shooting under adverse lighting conditions.
  • Achieves a 600mm focal length in a compact easy-to handle package
    Ingenious optical design features minimize the movement of lens groups within the lens when zooming. This reduces the amount of barrel extension needed to cover the complete focusing range, making the entire lens more compact.
  • Beautiful background blur effects
    Adopting a 9 blade circular diaphragm enables users to create beautiful background blur effects (bokeh), which provide even greater potential for creative expression. This circular diaphragm retains a nearly circular shape even at two stops down from its maximum aperture.
  • VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism creates greater opportunities for sharper handheld photography
    Tamron’s proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization system uses a three-coil system, delivering significantly sharper images and creating greater opportunities for handheld ultra-telephoto photography.
  • Comfortable autofocus
    Tamron’s new SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD features a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) ultrasonic motor drive for swift and accurate AF response, it delivers high torque, very fast response times, and very low noise. The full-time manual focus mechanism allows users to make fine manual focus adjustments at any time even when AF is engaged.
  • New elegant, high-class external finish
    Tamron has upgraded the cosmetic design and finish of this lens to create a more sophisticated, high-end look in keeping with the demands of discerning full-frame DSLR users. Employing a sophisticated linear pattern rubber grip on the zoom and focus rings and an attractive and stylish tungsten silver name-brand ring, this newly designed model accentuates its visceral presence with understated elegance and class.
  • Easy to use tripod mount
    The tripod mount has been completely redesigned to provide superior stability, durability, ease of use, and portability.
  • Comes with "SILKYPIX Developer Studio for Tamron," RAW image development processing software for Tamron’s SP lenses

The SILKYPIX Developer Studio for Tamron provides a range of functions, in addition to the basic adjustment capabilities, such as correcting aberrations (chromatic aberrations of magnification, distortion, peripheral light fall-off), based on the optical data. Used in tandem with Tamron's SP series lenses - renowned for their high-depiction capability - this advanced technology efficiently produces images that meet photographers' most exacting demands.
The Canon mount model will be released first in Japan on December 19, 2013 and subsequently elsewhere. The launch dates of the Nikon and Sony compatible mount models will be announced at a later date. The SP 150-600mm Di VC USD lens will be available in the USA on January 17, 2014.

Eye-Fi Mobi 32GB WiFi Memory Card
From Eye-Fi:
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., December 10, 2013 — Eye-Fi, the global leader in wireless memory cards, is announcing a beta Windows desktop receiver for the Mobi card. The Eye-Fi Mobi card will now instantly transfer directly to the desktop, extending the simple camera-to-mobile photo and video transfer users love.
With pricing yet to be announced, Eye-Fi's new desktop receiver for Windows will be free to all customers during beta and gives Mobi users more choice in where their high-quality photos can be transferred, stored and shared. Mobi users will now have the option to transfer to mobile for on-the-go sharing or to the desktop for greater archiving and editing ability — all without the hassle of wires or any delay in showing off their best photos whenever and however they want.
"Our customers love the ability to snap great pictures on a camera and instantly share from a phone or tablet, and now we're taking that experience one step further," said Matt DiMaria, CEO of Eye-Fi. "Now we're adding a simple, instant way to transfer to the desktop and make it easy for customers to get their photos on their computers to edit and archive."
The Eye-Fi desktop receiver for Windows will offer the same, reliable features that Mobi customers already use and love, including:

  • Simple setup: Once installed, simply enter the Mobi card's unique 10-digit activation code, and your Windows computer is paired. Use the same activation code to pair with multiple desktops and mobile devices as needed.
  • Transfer anywhere: Built-in WiFi means no WiFi network, hotspot or home Internet connection needed for pairing or transfer; Mobi transfers photos from a camera to the intended device anywhere, whenever new content is detected.
  • Works with cameras users already know (and love): Mobi works in thousands of cameras, including hundreds of Eye-Fi connected cameras that have integrated Eye-Fi technology for improved usability.
  • Backs up automatically: Photos and videos transfer as they're taken, so if anything happens to the camera, content is already safe on your mobile or desktop.

The beta Eye-Fi desktop receiver for Windows is available for Mobi users to download now, and a beta version for Mac is coming soon.
