"This is's Weekend Recap for the week ending August 24th, 2013
In the news...
On Tuesday, we posted about the 5D Mark IIIs with Magic Lantern pre-installed available for rent from LensRentals. The cameras ships with a 1000x memory card and enable users to capture amazingly clear RAW video.
On Thursday, Canon announced four new PowerShot cameras - the G16, S120, SX510 HS & SX170 IS - and a special edition Facebook-ready PowerShot N. Canon’s new top-of-the-line PowerShot, the G16, has been updated with a DIGIC 6 processor, improved AF, shorter lag, and built-in WiFi connectivity.
Also on Thursday, Canon announced the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens. Building on the popularity of the previous 55-250mm consumer zoom, the new lens features an improved AF system, reduced chromatic aberrations, and Canon’s stepping motor for reduced AF noise in video mode.
In site news and reviews...
On Monday, Bryan posted an atypical review for the site - the Toshiba KIRAbook 13. In short, Bryan liked the laptop’s cutting-edge speed, dense screen resolution and out-of-the-box color calibration. Check out Bryan’s review for more information.
Also this week, Bryan sent out the site’s inaugural newsletter and announced a giveaway. Anyone who signs up for the newsletter, or is already on the distribution list, will automatically be entered to win a Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive Camera Backpack.
The newsletter will include review updates, new product announcements, prize giveaways, picture explanations, and exclusive deals. If you’re interested in getting the newsletter, or want to enter the camera backpack giveaway, look for the signup box located above the menu bar on the site.
And, for our deal of the week…
On Tuesday, we posted an eBay deal from 47th Street Photo where you could get a Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM “Art” lens for $779.00 with free shipping [deal has expired]. That’s a $120.00 savings off the normal retail price.
This has been the’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!'

Barnegat Bay, NJ
Answer: Island Beach State Park, Seaside Park and Seaside Heights, NJ
I took a Pelican case full of gear for a 2-day road trip last week. This area was severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy last year, but the recovery effort has been remarkable. Repair of the unfortunate Barnegat Bay pier shown above was obviously remaining on the to-do list.
This image is a 2-frame composite. I was able to hold adequate highlights and shadows in a single frame, but using a 2+-stop overexposed frame allowed for a much better motion blur of the water. The two images were processed in DPP (the longer exposure was darkened 2 stops) and then stacked in Photoshop where the lower portion of the shorter-exposed top layer was deleted to let the water show through.
Watch for a review of this 16mm-capable full frame lens.
