From Samyang:
 
Explore Your Wideness
 
Samyang 20mm f/1.8 ED AS UMC is a wide angle manual focus lenses for DSLR cameras with full frame sensor size. The flow of light is devised based on the uniqueness of the distance from glass to sensor in mirrorless cameras to create optimal performance.
 
The bright f/1.8 aperture secures a fast shutter speed even under the restricted lighting conditions to offer best quality images. It will brighten up your everyday snapshots. Also it creates an outstanding out-of-focus look by highlighting the main object effectively. In between ultra-wide 16mm and wide-standard 24mm, 20mm lens is a perfect fit to explore wide angles not only for shooting indoor images such as concerts and interior photos but also street snaps. The 0.2m of minimum focusing adds versatility to the lens.
 
Based on Samyang Optics’ exceptional optical technology, Ultra Multi Coating and two aspherical lenses and three extra-low dispersion have been included among 13 glasses in 12 groups to minimise aberration and unnecessary light dispersion, delivering high resolution from the centre to the corners of the image.
 
Samyang 20mm f/1.8 is compatible with 10 camera mounts: Canon EOS, Nikon AE, Pentax K, Sony E, Canon M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, Sony E, FT, MFT.

Adorama has the DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter with Extra Battery available for $898.99 with free shipping. The extra battery is valued at $118.49.
 
It wasn't that long ago that the retail price of the Phantom 3 Professional was $1,259.00 without an extra battery. Of course, the introduction of Phantom 4 was the catalyst for the lower Phantom 3 prices we're seeing now. But make no mistake – the Phantom 3 Pro/Advanced models are still extremely capable (and fun) machines.

Sigma has firmware updates available for the following lenses:
 
  • Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art
  • Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary
  • Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary
  • SIGMA 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports
All three firmware updates resolve an underexposure issue when the lens is used with a Nikon D500. The 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports firmware update is only required if using a TC-1401 or TC-2001 teleconverter with the lens.
 
Sigma Global Vision lenses (like the ones above) can be updated using Sigma USB Dock. Before updating, be sure to download and install the latest version of Sigma Optimization Pro.
 
If you do not own a USB Dock, you can send your lens to a Sigma Service Center and have its firmware updated free of charge. However, considering the cost of shipping a lens insured and the universal nature of the dock, simply buying the USB Dock seems to be the most practical way to update your lens' firmware.

From Canon USA:
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., August 3, 2016 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will be bringing their service and support expertise to Brazil to help maximize the uptime and performance of its users' professional imaging equipment. From pro DSLR cameras and EF lenses to broadcast television lenses, Canon's award-winning service and support staff will be providing preventative maintenance and repairs to help professionals who have put their trust in Canon imaging equipment.
 
Canon's team of over 70 highly trained technicians and support staff will be in Brazil for nearly a month to support professional photographers and broadcasters, just as they do throughout the year. Canon Professional Services (CPS) is set to provide comprehensive equipment maintenance and repairs, extensive equipment loans and expert technical support.
 
"Canon is proud to offer professional photographers and broadcasters high quality image-making solutions that are thoughtfully designed and versatile so that they can capture sharp, clear, detailed images and video," said Elizabeth Pratt, director, Professional Client Development and Support, Canon U.S.A. "Knowing that iconic images will be captured, seen and shared by people around the world really drives Canon to provide professionals with not only high quality equipment but the customer support they need to help ensure they never miss a beat if anything happens to their equipment."
 
Canon EOS DSLR cameras and EF lenses are the camera and lenses of choice of a majority of the top U.S.-based news agencies and professional sports photographers.
 
The Associated Press will be using Canon cameras and lenses exclusively, including cameras which are integrated with advanced robotics systems. The robotic camera systems can be mounted both in the rafters high above a field of play and underwater in pools, all fully controlled remotely over a network. "High-speed and high-performing digital imaging solutions like the EOS-1D X Mark II camera and L-series EF lenses are key to our team's success," said Santiago Lyon, vice president and director of photography, Associated Press. "Canon provides innovative technology and world-class optics that give us the solutions we need to create compelling images."
 
A majority of Reuters photographers from around the world will be using Canon DSLR cameras and lenses and trust Canon products and award-winning support team to keep them up and running. "Photographing large sporting events for thousands of news outlets and an audience of billions requires meticulous planning and technical resilience. The staff and engineers from CPS help ensure that the Canon cameras used by the world's top sports photographers receive precision treatment that allows them to take pictures that capture key moments and illustrate the spirit of competition," said Kevin Coombs, editor-in-chief for Thomson Reuters.
 
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II DSLR camera and ultra-wide zoom EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens were selected to be used for Getty Images' new high-tech, remote-controlled underwater robotic system. The camera provides Getty Images with a fully networkable solution that features precise white balance, a blazing fast frame rate and impressive low-light capabilities, which make the camera ideal for capturing fast action. When combined with the durable and rugged EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens, the system will allow Getty Images to capture images at extremely wide perspectives with incredible sharpness and minimal distortion from the center of the image to the periphery, all across the entire zoom range. "As the world's leading visual communications company, we believe that our world class sports photographers must have the most up-to-date photographic technology that empowers them to do their job, and to do it exceptionally well. Getty Images is using Canon's EOS-1D X Mark II cameras and EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lenses in a unique, remotely-controlled underwater camera system that gives us the flexibility to follow and capture action from beneath," said Ken Mainardis, vice president of Sport at Getty Images. "We recently used the new underwater system and the images were remarkable. We're looking forward to using our Canon gear to capture more fantastic underwater imagery."
 
"The European Pressphoto Agency (EPA) will have a photographic team of 40 capturing incredible moments. Months ago, EPA's entire U.S. contingent switched over to the Canon EOS System," explained Gernot Hensel, EPA's long-standing head of sports and deputy editor-in-chief. "The EPA team is comprised of colleagues from all over the world, and the majority of them will be using Canon equipment, including robotic systems, to capture the action."
 
Simon Bruty, an award-winning sports photographer and Canon Explorer of Light is one of the best sports photographers in the world. "As a professional photographer, I have to be able to capture every moment of the action because a hundredth of a second can mean the difference between capturing or missing the winning moment or race finish, and Canon cameras, like the new EOS-1D X Mark II, deliver the stunning image quality and speed I need while working," said Mr. Bruty. "The 14 frames per second that the EOS-1D X Mark II camera can capture, which enables over 12 seconds of continuous RAW shooting without buffering, means that I could shoot an entire 100 meter dash without taking my finger off of the shutter release. If I shot in JPEG mode and have a large enough memory card, I could do it for the entire 2+ hours of a marathon race!"
