Adorama has special pricing on Photoflex Adjustable Umbrellas – now 20% Off.
 
So just what is an "adjustable umbrella?" It's an umbrella that can change shape - from circular, to oblong to square!

Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens for Canon with Removeable Hood
eBay (via BuyDig) has the Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens for Canon for Canon available for $199.99 with free shipping. Compare at $279.00.
 
I have the original Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye (without the removeable lens hood) and really enjoy using it. It's a great lens to use for capturing expansive scenes with dynamic and threatening storm clouds (see below). [Sean]

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending November 23rd, 2013.
 
In the news...
 
On Wednesday, Sigma released firmware updates for all of its Global Vision lenses. The updates were necessary to allow Sigma’s Nikon-mount lenses to work properly with the newly announced Nikon D5300 camera. If you have a D5300 on pre-order, be sure to update your Global Vision lens’s firmware for full compatibility.
 
Also on Wednesday, Nikon announced that it was the official camera of Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. The agreement means that there will now be Nikon branded picture spots throughout Disney’s properties.
 
In site news and reviews...
 
On Monday, Bryan posted his Canon Super Telephoto Lens Shootout from Shenandoah National Park. In the article, Bryan gave his thoughts on using the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS and the 500 and 600mm f/4L IS II lenses for photographing wildlife. Check out his post for more details.
 
On Thursday, Bryan posted the Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G AF-S Lens test results to the site. Lens tests added include image quality, flare, light fall-off and distortion. Lens specifications and measurements were also added.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Wednesday, we posted a great deal from Adobe where you can now get the Photoshop Photography Membership Program on Creative Cloud – that’s Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 – for only $9.99 per month with no previous Photoshop ownership required. Previously, a version of Photoshop CS3 or later was required to qualify for this pricing.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"

Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera
eBay (via BigValueInc) has the Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera available for $885.00 with free shipping. Compare at $1,146.95.
 
Caveat Emptor: BigValueInc's positive feedback rating is at 98.3%. We received information that some buyers received the wrong product when purchasing from this merchant. Be sure to keep all supporting documents if taking advantage of this offer. eBay does seem to trust "BigValueInc" enough to continue listing their auctions as "Daily Deals" and we had a good first-hand experience with them.

LensRentals Logo
Roger Cicala of LensRentals has published "The Cynic’s Photography Dictionary" for all of us to enjoy.
 
Sample Definitions:

Bokeh – the look of the picture in the parts where you can’t tell what you’re looking at.
 
Image Stabilization – a technologic triumph consisting of lenses, magnets, position sensors, springs, and electric motors that is nearly as effective as 3 sticks of wood attached to a base plate. See also, Tripod.
 
Lens coating — thin layers of of substances applied to clear glass that makes it clearer. In the 1600s people would be burned at the stake for claiming things like this.
 
Sensor – The device that actually takes an image. Its most important attribute is the number of megapixels unless yours has fewer, in which case dynamic range, high ISO performance, microlens effectiveness, color accuracy, and other characteristics are more notable.

Check out the the LensRentals Blog the full list of humorous definitions.
