Adobe is citing higher-than-expected currency fluctuations for its plan to raise Creative Cloud rates in the UK and Sweden starting March 6, 2017.
From Adobe UK:
Adobe and currency fluctuations
Currency exchange rates have fluctuated significantly over the last few years. Like many US-based global companies, Adobe is making pricing adjustments in a number of countries to offset fluctuations in foreign exchange rate. Starting on March 6, 2017, the price of Adobe products in the United Kingdom and Sweden will be increased. Existing customers will receive information about their subscription pricing directly from Adobe.
When do the product prices increase in the United Kingdom and Sweden?
The increased prices are effective starting on March 6, 2017.
I have an existing membership. Is my monthly fee going up?
If you have a month-to-month plan, you will see the price increase on your statement at the next billing date. If you have an annual plan, the new price goes into effect at the end of your annual term.
On the one hand, I hate to see a monthly rate increase for any service that I subscribe to. On the other hand, I can certainly understand how a company with such a global reach may have to periodically adjust prices based on drastic currency fluctuations. I only hope that these periodic adjustments will include price reductions if the exchange rate goes in the other direction. [Sean]

Resolution and noise test results along with specifications have been added to the Sony a7R II Review page.
Creating perfect apples-to-apples comparisons between different systems is very difficult and I ask you to use careful discernment as you make such comparisons. In the Sony a7R II vs. Canon EOS 5Ds R noise comparison, I see more noise in the higher resolution camera (a higher pixel density sensor showing more pixel-level noise is expected), but the difference is slight and partially due to the Canon noise details being rendered slightly sharper (sharpening the noise).
I don't have under and overexposed examples available for the EOS 5Ds R in the noise comparison tool (at least not yet), but do have them for the EOS 5D Mark IV. In this case, the Canon has lower pixel density (and resolution) to its pixel-level noise advantage. With that difference in mind, the a7R II vs. 5D IV comparison shows the 5D IV results having slightly less noise and less grain to the noise when exposures are pushed 3 stops. Whether the less-grain difference is positive or not is a bit of a personal preference and the processing of the RAW images may come into play here.
Here is the Sony a7R II vs. Canon EOS 5Ds R resolution comparison. And, here is the Sony a7R II vs. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV resolution comparison.
If you missed the post earlier this week, the Sony a7R II Review page has a brief discussion on the Sony RAW converter and processing settings decision process.
B&H has the Sony a7R II with a $300.00 rebate. As I said before, to get a huge bargain, trade in any camera or lens (even something of very low value) and get an additional $480.00 off of this camera (in addition to the trade-in value) or a significant amount off of many other Sony products.

On January 31, Triggertrap's founder Haje Jan Kamps announced in a blog post that the company will be shutting it doors in the very near future. The failure of its failed Redsnap/Ada Kickstarter campaign as well as competition from products such as the Miops Camera Triggers proved too difficult to overcome.

From the B&H YouTube Channel:
As many people know, our National Parks are seeing ever increasing numbers of visitors which means traffic jams, long waits, and huge crowds at the better known photo spots. The good news is that almost everyone disappears after the sunset fades. Chris and Lance are two of the five instructors that make up National Parks at Night, and they will show you how to make the most of your visit to any national park and experience them in ways that most people never do. National parks have some of the darkest skies in the country, which means they are filled with amazing views of the Milky Way.
Lance has been photographing at night for 30 years, and has almost 20 years experience teaching night photography, and Chris literally wrote the book on photographing national parks. Together they will share their experiences photographing the night sky in Parks like Acadia, Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Death Valley, Zion, and many others. They will also present general tips on night photography, including techniques and gear for working in natural light situations.
