Photographer Martin Evening has written a thorough and informative article on the open standard DNG file format.
 
From the Photoshop Blog:
Is it wise to convert your raw files to the Adobe DNG format? If you are using Lightroom or Photoshop with Camera Raw, you have the option to convert your master files to DNG. In this article I want to focus on the benefits of converting, the reasons why converting to DNG may not always be ideal or necessary, as well as tackle some of the misinformation about DNG.
Read the entire article on the Photoshop Blog.

Typically speaking, B&H offers 2-4% Rewards on DSLR cameras and lenses. However, for a limited time B&H is offering 10% Rewards on select Canon DSLR cameras. However, you must use the link in the previous sentence to trigger the higher rewards.
 
The Rewards Program works like this: roughly 40-60 days after a qualifying purchase, the customer is sent a B&H Gift Card via email which is valid for 6 months after issue.
 
Keep in mind, 10% Rewards on the Canon 5Ds R would be enough to cover the cost of accessories such as the BG-E11 battery grip and the recently reviewed Feisol TT-15 Mini Carbon Fiber Tabletop Tripod.
 
Canon DSLR Cameras Eligible for 10% Rewards
 
  • EOS 1D X
  • EOS 5Ds
  • EOS 5Ds R
  • EOS 5D Mark III
  • EOS 6D
  • EOS 7D Mark II
Canon DSLR Camera/Lens Kits Eligible for 10% Rewards
 
  • EOS 5D Mark III with EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM
  • EOS 5D Mark III with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
  • EOS 6D with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
  • EOS 6D with EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Update: It looks like there are several Nikon DSLRs that qualify for the 10% Rewards as well.

I recently had the opportunity to photograph from the top of the Rockefeller Center, from the observatory decks named "Top of the Rock". The view from this location is excellent and the imagery waiting to be captured is eye-catching, but there are some things you should know before you go. I have posted a guide to help you maximize your time at this location along with many tips that can be applied to other similar locations.
 
The Ultimate Guide to Photographing at Top of the Rock (and Tips for No Tripods Allowed Locations)
 
This image was captured at 16mm with the amazing Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens, a great choice for this location. And, the Feisol TT-15 Mini Carbon Fiber Tabletop Tripod made this 2 second shot possible.
 
A larger version of this image is available on Flickr, Google+ and Facebook. Also, if reading from a news feed reader, click through to see the framed image.

B&H has their Fotodiox LenZcups available (in Canon and Nikon variants) for $14.95 each. Regularly $24.95 - $29.95.
 
I have one of these that looks like the EF 24-105L and it was always a hit when I worked in an office environment. These mugs make excellent stocking stuffers and are sure to be a catalyst for conversation when filled with one's favorite caffeinated beverage. [Sean]

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]
