Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens on EOS 5D Mark III
Image quality results for a second lens have been added to the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens review.
 
It is hard to distinguish the results between the two lenses with a minor exception of the latest lens showing very slightly better wide open performance at 35mm. The latest tested lens is sample "1".
 
Also added to this review were:

  • Standard flare test results
  • Coma discussion and example
  • Image illustrating AI Servo AF testing

Canon Rebates Banner
Canon created a new set of rebates after the previous rebates expired on July 5. Unfortunately, the instant rebates of the previous round are gone (aside from the instant savings on the EOS 7D).
 
Saying the previous rebates were "extended" would be a bit of a misnomer. While most of the same items are eligible for rebates, many of the rebate amounts are slightly less than they were just last month. And this round of rebates seems a bit more complicated than they have been in years past.
 
For example, if you buy one of these bodies:

  • EOS 6D
  • EOS 7D
  • EOS 70D
  • EOS 60D

You qualify for a rebate on these specific lenses:

LensRebate Amount
EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM$300.00
EF 100mm f/2 USM$100.00
EF 100mm f/2.8 L Macro IS USM$150.00
EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM$100.00

Note that these lenses do not qualify for the other mail-in rebate which covers lens-only purchases.
 
Of course, Canon also has printer rebates. Purchasing one of the following cameras with a PIXMA PRO-1, PRO-10, or PRO-100 qualifies you for a $300.00 mail-in rebate:

  • EOS-1D X
  • EOS 5D Mark III
  • EOS 6D
  • EOS 7D
  • EOS 70D
  • EOS 60D
  • EOS Rebel T5i
  • EOS Rebel SL1
  • EOS Rebel T3i
  • EOS Rebel T5
  • EOR Rebel T3
  • PowerShot G1 X
  • PowerShot G16
  • PowerShot G15
  • PowerShot S120
  • PowerShot S110

Unfortunately, I was told by Canon USA's Marketing Department that the rebates aren't stackable. So if you bought a Canon EOS 6D, EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM and PIXMA PRO-100, you would not receive $600.00 in rebates (only $300.00).
 
As usual, DSLR rebates will vary depending on whether you buy a body only or a lens kit.

From the Profoto Blog:

"There are days when the whole world seems to smile upon you. But there are also days when the forces of nature seem to conspire against you. This shoot belongs in the latter category…
 
The shoot was done at Långtora Airfield outside Stockholm, which is the airfield where my gliding club is based. The look we were going for was a modern version of the flying ladies of the 1940s. Quite a few of the classic Hollywood stars flew gliders. The particular glider we were borrowing for this shoot was used by the Danish air force during the 1940s to train fighter pilots. Some people at the club claim that the gilder was once flown by Greta Garbo. But that fact is still to be verified…
 
Lighting-wise, we planned to shoot with sunlight and Collapsible Reflectors only. I wanted a subtle and natural backlight in the images, and Collapsible Reflectors are great for that. The fact that Profoto offer ten different Collapsible Reflectors in six fabrics (black, white, silver, sunsilver, gold and translucent) would be helpful, as that allowed us to create different light characters and moods by simply replacing one Collapsible Reflector with another.
 
That was the plan. But as it turned, the forces of nature refused to cooperate."

Read the entire article on the Profoto Blog.
 
B&H carries Profoto Collapsible Reflectors.

Dogwood Park Fountain, Cookeville, TN
Site vistor Mark J. sent us a great tip – Microsoft has a freely downloadable program for producing GIFs, called Microsoft Research Cliplets.
 
After learning about the program, I simply had to try it. I went to the local park to capture a video of its fountain in action (shown above).
 
Check out the video below to see how it works.
