From Gentec International:
 
Gitzo upgrades heads and tripod kits with a new quick-release system compatible with Arca-Swiss plates.
 
JANUARY 20, 2014 - Gentec International, the exclusive Canadian distributor of Gitzo products, announces a new quick-release system that is being introduced across many of Gitzo’s heads, Traveler tripod kits, and accessories. Compatible with Arca-Swiss plates and most other manufacturers’ Arca-Swiss style plates, Gitzo’s new system also offers a number of significant advantages over alternative quick-release systems.
 
Gitzo’s new system is easier to use during set-up and changeovers, and offers failsafe support of camera equipment. The camera/plate can be snapped into the head from above, which is faster and easier than trying to slide it in from the side. When a Gitzo plate is used, the quick-release system’s secondary safety pin will also engage to prevent camera equipment from falling accidentally from the head, even if the plate locking lever is not fully locked.
 
The plate also features Gitzo’s new camera screw design. To make it as easy as possible to use, no matter where you are and what tools you have on hand, the screw can be tightened by hand, using a coin or with the supplied allen key. The hybrid system, used on many of the new models, will also take traditional Gitzo C-profile plates, making it especially useful for photographers who already own and use Gitzo C-profile plates as their standard equipment. To accept Gitzo C-profile plates, the adaptor is simply removed from the clamp.
 
The new quick-release system includes three standard centre ball heads (GH1780QD, $379.95 MSRP; GH2780QD, $479.95 MSRP; GH3780QD, $549.95 MSRP), two Traveler centre ball heads (GH1781TQD, $319.95 MSRP; GH2781TQD, $359.95 MSRP), a Systematic head (GH5381SQD, $669.95 MSRP), and two Traveler tripod kits (GK1580TQD4, $1,039.95 MSRP; GK2580TQD, $1,149.95 MSRP). Accessories are also available and include quick-release adaptors and plates, plus a panoramic disc.

Arca-Swiss Monoball Z1 sp Ballhead
Last week we posted about Arca-Swiss's change in manufacturing which now makes their ballhead quick-releases non-replaceable (at least by the consumer). According to the Arca-Swiss representative we spoke to, the only way to replace the quick-release clamp on a newly manufactured Arca-Swiss monoball (like my Z1) and keep the warranty intact was to have Precision Camera Works perform the replacement. We were told there was a $30.00 flat fee for the procedure.
 
However, Precision Camera Works has just updated their Arca-Swiss QR clamp replacement policy. The updated policy means you may qualify for a QR clamp replacement at no charge. Details are as follows:

  1. If the user supplies the replacement clamp and the ballhead is one of Arca-Swiss's newly manufactured designs, then Precision Camera Works will discount the service if the user forfeits the ballhead's existing clamp. The value of the discount may fluctuate depending on the condition of the existing clamp, but the maximum value is a free replacement ($30.00 value).
     
  2. If you buy the replacement clamp from Precision Camera Works for your newly designed ballead, the QR replacement is free. You may elect to forfeit your current clamp for [up to] a $30.00 credit. Again, the condition of the current clamp will affect the value of the credit that is offered.
     
  3. If you have one of the old style Arca-Swiss ballheads with a captive clamp mechanism (distinguishable by a bolt that does not have a hexagonal/allen wrench fitting on top), there is a $98.00 QR replacement fee. The increased fee is due to the ballhead needing to be fully disassembled (and reassembled) for clamp replacement.

While on the subject of Arca-Swiss ballheads, Precision Camera Works wanted me to reiterate an important point – never use lubricants, cleaners (like WD-40), acetone or alcohol on your ballhead. Doing so will damage the head and void your warranty. For more information on how to care for your monoball, check out Precision Camera Works's page titled "The Care and Feeding of Your ARCA-SWISS Monoball Head."
 
Also, if you decide to send in your Arca-Swiss Monoball for a QR clamp replacement or for service, be sure to include your full contact information and return shipping address on the inside the box (I almost forgot to include my own return shipping address). Failing to do so will certainly delay the usually speedy service. ;-)

From Nikon Europe:
 
It has recently become clear that in some very rare cases, if the camera is subjected to a strong shock such as being dropped or struck, heat may be generated from inside the camera and the top cover of the Nikon COOLPIX L25 may become deformed and a small gap may be visible near the shutter-release button. This may occur regardless of whether the camera is turned on or off. There is no danger of fire.
 
Area where the camera may be deformed and/or a small gap may appear after a strong shock is shown below.

Nikon COOLPIX L25 Service Advisory (Image 1)

What to do if your camera is subjected to a strong shock
If your camera has received a strong shock, remove the batteries immediately to prevent further problems. It is possible batteries may become hot, handle them with caution.
 
Free inspection / modification service
In order to ensure users' peace of mind, we will be offering a free inspection and modification service to prevent the possibility of this problem from occurring. Please contact Nikon customer support (Europe/USA) for further advice on how to return your product to a Nikon Service Center.
 
How to identify products that have already been inspected / modified
Products that have already been inspected and/or modified have a white identifying mark on the tripod socket on the bottom of the camera. The free inspection / modification service is not necessary or offered for products with the white mark.
 
Identifying mark for products already checked / modified is shown below.

Nikon COOLPIX L25 Service Advisory (Image 2)

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this matter may cause you.
