From Think Tank Photo:
 
One of the most common questions we receive from experienced and new photographers alike is "How do I most effectively pack my camera equipment, travel with it and then arrive at my destination with my gear intact and ready to shoot?" Over the years our Customer Service team has gathered the very best advice, which they now present in a free report, "PACK TRAVEL SHOOT," available for download here.
 
For example, did you know:

  • You can configure the dividers in your shoulder bag so that your camera is better protected, lessening the chances of it being damaged?
  • With airlines, the weight of carry-on bags is becoming as much of an issue as their size?
  • Because of weight/size restrictions and the lack of airline insurance, many photographers now ship their gear in advance using services such as FedEx?

This guide is filled with insights that, we hope, keep your gear safer and increase your enjoyment of finally getting to your destination and shooting.

From Think Tank Photo:
 
The third in our "About A Photograph" video series has just been released. In it, National Geographic staff photographer Steve Winter narrates the events behind his gripping remote camera shot of two tigers located deep in a national park in India's interior.
 
Said Winter, "We got this picture the first day. I wanted to change the lighting when we came the day after, but I looked at my assistant and said, 'We can change the lighting, but we're never going to get anything better than this.'"
 
Winter has been attacked by rhinos in India, stalked by jaguars in Brazil, charged by a 11-foot grizzly in Siberia, and trapped in quicksand in the world's largest tiger reserve in Myanmar. He started at National Geographic in 1991, which he calls "the best job in the world." He is also Director of Media for Panthera, www.panthera.org, an organization whose mission it is to save the world's 36 unique cat species.

From Datacolor:
 
For anyone who views images via tablets or smartphones – and for on-the-go photographers in particular – they should think about color calibration. Tablet and phone displays are amazing, but are they always accurate?
 
The Android version joins the previously available iOS SpyderGALLERY app. Using a Spyder4 calibration device, Android users can now enjoy color-managed image viewing in the SpyderGALLERY app, which accesses existing photo albums to display accurately calibrated, vibrant images. Viewing images through the color-managed viewer will allow for more accurate color and provide users with a closer match to desktop monitors and other color-managed displays.
 
You can get the SpyderGALLERY app for Android in the Google Play store. The iOS application is available in the Apple Store.
 
Adorama carries the Datacolor Spyder4 Colorimeters.

Canon EOS Rebel T5i Camera
* Not my normal review
 
Perhaps the biggest Rebel T5i/700D upgrade from the T4i/650D is the name. The Canon Rebel T5i is practically identical to the Canon Rebel T4i, so I borrowed the T4i review to create the T5i review. I outline the differences between these two camera models at the top of the review. If you are familiar with the T4i review, you probably only need to read through the first bullet list.
 
Canon EOS Rebel T5i / 700D Review
 
Do I recommend buying the T5i over the T4i? Yes, definitely. But the biggest reason is price. The T5i body is priced $50.00 USD lower than the T4i body right now.
 
With a $50.00 - $200.00 instant rebate available, check out the Rebel T5i combo specials currently available at Adorama.
 
Worth noting is that the Canon EOS 60D body is currently $50.00 less than the Rebel T5i. And the refurbished 60D is a great deal at $170.00 USD less.

I [Sean] have a collapsible softbox very similar to this one and use it all the time. It's great for product photography or even headshots (when used relatively close to the subject).

Lenstag Homepage
Lenstag (https://www.lenstag.com/) is a new site aimed at discouraging the sale of stolen camera gear and helping the original owner locate the gear through tips. And another great thing about it - it's free!
 
From Lenstag's FAQ:
 
How does it work?
 
Lenstag works like this:

  • Sign up & add your cameras, lenses & video equipment to your account. It's totally free.
  • Verify that you're in possession of each item by uploading a picture from your phone or computer of each item's serial number or something else that shows you own each item (warranty card, etc.).
  • If an item gets stolen, immediately flag it as such and we'll create a public page to help you get it back.

Bonus feature: if you sell or give an item to someone else, you can transfer the record to them using Lenstag and save the next person from having to re-verify.
 
How can I tell if a camera or lens is stolen?
 
Do a web search for 'stolen', the serial number of the item and 'lenstag' for good measure. If the item's page shows up, there's a good chance it's stolen. If you know something about the item (location, craigslist post, etc.) please type it into the box and leave your email address (optional) so we can follow up.
 
Check out the Lenstag website for more information.
