At least three of these accessories will fit in even a small Christmas stocking and the fourth will likely qualify as a stocking stuffer for a standard-sized sock. Having them in your kit will, for many, be worth the mostly stocking-stuffer-sized prices:
 
Super Clamp
Magic Arm
Double Ball Joint Head
Tripod Head Mounting Plate with Hex Stud
 
These reviews are primarily to highlight what I'm using and find useful, but ... being able to reference these items will be helpful for an article I hope to have ready for you on Monday.

From Time.com:
"The moment you meet BB-8, you build up some form of weird human connection," says Marco Grob, who photographed the new Star Wars character for this week’s TIME cover. "It has one eye that has this really cute way of looking at you. It’s just incredible."
 
"For me, Star Wars is much more than only a film," Grob says. "Star Wars is hundreds of people who try to push the envelope. People who take enormous risks in creative and in technical aspects. They try to do things we’ve never seen before in a way nobody would have imagined to ever see before. And for me, it’s incredible.”
Is anyone else a little envious of Marco Grob right now? How cool would it have been to get that assignment? [Sean]

From Karl Taylor Photography:
 
In this video both myself and Urs Recher look at the techniques for combining fast exposures and long exposures to create a beautiful dance portraits where we reveal both the detail frozen and the motion blur recorded. To do this we use flash and HMI lighting.
 
Photography Shoot Technical Details
 
The HMI 400 W from the right with illuminates only the back of the model. In this way, the front and the face are not affected by this light and remain dark. Because of its position the background shouldn’t get any light from the HMI either.
 
The Siros light focused in the Para 133 can therefore guarantee an absolutely sharp picture of the model’s front and face if the flash duration is short enough. Here on the Siros it is set to t0.1 (min) of appox 1/4000 sec.
 
The exposure times were between ¼ and 1/2 a second and the camera is set to rear curtain sync meaning the flash fires at the end of the camera exposure time.

Technically speaking, a new firmware for the Canon EF-S 55-250 IS STM appeard on Canon USA's website back in July (but we missed it). However, the firmware udpate may be more relevant than ever for the large number of people who likely took advantage of the crazy Black Friday refurb. deal on the lens (I'm included in that group). Then again, this updated firmware update seems to only improve AF performance when the lens is used with the EOS M3 via adapter.[Sean]
 
From Canon USA:
 
Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Firmware v.1.0.3
 
Firmware Version 1.0.3 incorporates the following enhancement.
 
  • Improves the autofocus speed when the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM is attached to the EOS M3..
*To mount the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM to the EOS M3, the mount adapter EF-EOS M is required.
*The enhancement in the autofocus speed only applies when the lens is used with the EOS M3.
 
Firmware Version 1.0.3 is for lenses with firmware Version 1.0.2. If the lens firmware is already Version 1.0.3, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
 
Identification procedure
If the 3rd digit in the serial number of your lens is either 0, 1, or 2, then it is equipped with firmware Version 1.0.2 e.g.
 
xx0xxxxxxx, xx1xxxxxxx, xx2xxxxxxx
 
Lenses with serial numbers other than those listed above are equipped with firmware Version 1.0.3 or later.
 
Cautions:
 
  • To update the firmware of the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM, the EOS M3 and the mount adapter EF-EOS M are required.
  • If an extension tube is attached, the firmware update may not be carried out successfully, so please make sure to detach the extension tube before performing the firmware update.
  • For this firmware update to be effective, you need to update the firmware of the EOS M3 to the latest version (Version 1.0.1 or later).
Note: Canon doesn't mention it, but the lens firmware can also be upgraded via select DSLR bodies like the EOS 7D Mark II.
