Adorama has the Flashpoint Backlight Stand (3.3') available for $14.95. Regularly $30.00.
Product Highlights
  • Optimal leg spread to height ratio
  • Large comfortable knobs for easy height adjustments
  • Standard 1/4" screw on a 5/8" stud
  • Super small
  • Super compact
  • Variable tension for precise raising & lowering
  • Rubber tipped feet to protect flooring & reduce vibration & sliding
I have several medium to large-sized light stands (my favorite being the Matthews Maxi Steel Kit Stand – B&H | Adorama) as well as a backlight stand base, but I oftentimes find myself needing something right in between those two sizes. This looks to be the perfect middle ground height I've been looking for. Even though shipping is not free with this item, its with-shipping final price is still lower than competing products. [Sean]

Ready for the Future of Image Editing – A Faster, More Powerful Experience
COPENHAGEN, December 1, 2016 – Phase One today released Capture One Pro 10, a major release of the world’s premiere raw conversion and image editing software. Designed to support wide ranging workflows of both professional and passionate photographers, Capture One Pro is known and trusted for rendering the finest image color and detail from more than 400 digital camera models. Now, based on customer feedback, Capture One Pro 10 puts superior user experience center stage – with interface improvements, under-the-hood tuning, and exciting new features that furnish the fastest, most reliable and most powerful performance yet.
What’s New with Capture One Pro 10:
Enhanced User Experience
Faster browsing, zooming, panning, and ease in switching between images even at 100 percent view. Also, a new default workspace offers a more intuitive experience for new users, with examples for getting started.
Greater control, with a three-stage image sharpening process:
  • A new lens tool option corrects lost sharpness caused by diffraction;
  • User-defined creative sharpening (utilizing a new Halo Suppression slider and a new blending algorithm) allows the photographer the option to sharpen an entire image, or just various elements within it;
  • User-defined output sharpening in the recipe tool. For print sharpening, users can also specify the distance from which the final output image should be viewed.
On-screen proofing
An enhanced proof mode takes the guesswork out of the raw conversion process. From the viewer panel, users can now simulate the final size, resolution, color, compression artifacts and sharpening of images. This is especially useful for live assessment of files – particularly small files for the web and for optimizing image compression quality.
A look into the future of image editing
Inspired by video grading processes, users can now access Capture One Pro directly through a Tangent panel system. This fully integrated panel is literally a new interface into image editing – for deep dive color and image adjustment –– allowing fast, multiple input commands simultaneously, while viewing the master monitor as the editor “feels” input into the application.
Camera Focus Tool
A camera focus tool module for tethered cameras – especially useful for product, still life, macro, and Cultural Heritage photography projects.
“We have developed Capture One Pro 10 to greatly improve users’ experience so they can achieve the results they want much faster and with greater confidence,” said James Johnson, software product manager, Phase One. “Image adjustment options are now at a whole new level. We believe that with this release, we are delivering the most powerful, responsive, and user customizable image processor available.”
The Complete List of New Features:
  • Three-phase sharpening tools (see above)
  • Output proofing (see above)
  • New default and intuitive workspace (see above)
  • Camera focus tool module for tethered cameras (see above)
  • Tangent panel: full integration (see above)
  • New filter option: search by orientation of images
  • Optimization of Jpeg output for size/quality
  • Move folders in catalogs
  • Auto masking extended to any editable file type (including Xtrans)
  • Improved compressed RAW and Fuji support
  • Hardware acceleration – OpenCL is now enabled by default
  • Stripe reduction LCC for 100MP
  • Optimized LCC creation
  • Computer ID in license for activation management
  • Apple script – new properties (Mac only)
New camera and lens support
New camera support includes: Olympus E-M1 mkll, Sony RX100M5, Sony A6500 and A99M2.
New lens profile support includes: Sony FE 70-200 mm F4 G OSS, Sony 70-200 mm F2.8 G, and Sony E 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS

From the LensRentals Blog:
Author: Roger Cicala
I like to start articles by stating my expectations, because, like everyone, my expectations going in color my opinion after seeing the results. Given Canon’s recent series of home-run lens upgrades, I expected the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 IS II would be a superb lens. I was particularly expecting improvement at 105mm, which was the weak point of the original lens.
And, I usually put my conclusions at the start of an article so those of you who don’t like MTF graphs and spirited discussion about optical results don’t have to scroll down to the bottom. The new Mk II version is a bit better than the original version, but I was expecting a lot more. I wouldn’t rush out and upgrade from the 24-105mm f/4 IS if your goal is amazingly better optics. There may be other reasons to do so, but optics is not it.
