Fracture Logo
Due to manufacturing and expansion costs, FractureMe.com will be raising prices on half the glass print sizes they offer starting May 16. Through May 15, use coupon code TDPSAVE20 to get 20% off your order at the current price for an especially good deal.
 
From FractureMe.com:
 
Fracture’s mission is simple: to redefine how the world prints and displays its favorite images.
 
That means we strive to provide incredible photo products at prices you can afford. We love how frequently we get comments from first-time customers just like you who say “WOW, I didn’t realize that such an amazing product could be so affordable”.
 
However, as we continue to grow and encounter the realities of being a fast-growing young company, we need to make that we can cover our costs and be certain that we’re able to stick around for a long time, so we can be there for you and your favorite memories for years to come.
 
Because of that, starting on May 16th, we’ll be raising prices on some Fracture sizes.
 
Raising prices is never easy, but above all it’s important that we communicate with you. Good news or not, you deserve to know what’s going on, and why we make important decisions like this that can affect you.
 
We’re raising prices for these two reasons:

  1. As the Fracture team continues to grow, we must ensure that we’re able to provide for them as they continue to work incredibly hard to build the amazing Fracture experience you enjoy.
  2. Our costs to custom-make each Fracture here in the U.S. are increasing - our explosive growth demands that we prepare for the future and that means purchasing new equipment, scaling our facilities, and adding more team members.

While we’ve done everything internally to operate in as lean a fashion as possible, the new pricing reflects our best additional effort to offset the cost increases listed above as we continue to provide the high quality products and services that we are known for.
 
Which sizes are increasing in price?
 
We are happy about the fact that we were able to limit price increases to only half of our current Fracture sizes. New pricing will be applied to the following sizes:

  • Small rectangles
  • Medium rectangles
  • Classic rectangles
  • Large rectangles

Prices will NOT increase for the following sizes:

  • X-large rectangles
  • Small Squares
  • Medium Squares
  • Large Squares

You mean the world to us and we mean that. Without customers like you, we simply wouldn’t exist. We wanted to give you an opportunity to place any orders now before May 16th and enjoy our current pricing. Upload your latest photos and Spring time memories and we will get to work printing them for you!

Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens
It has been 2-days short of a year since the last Canon L lens announcement (for the ultra-expensive, but amazing, EF 200-400mm f/4 L IS USM Extender 1.4x Lens), so you are not likely surprised to hear that I have been experiencing ever-increasing new-L-Lens withdrawal symptoms. Well, that anxiety has just been lifted. The long Canon pro gear drought has just ended thanks to the announcement of the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens.
 
The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens review page contains a preview of the lens including:

With a moderate price tag and an impressive-looking MTF chart, I highly recommend that you preorder this lens immediately at B&H to preserve your place in line. This will likely be a very in-demand lens and has the potential to be hard to get for some time. You can always cancel a preorder, but getting a good place in line is far harder to accomplish later.

Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flash Location Kit
From Profoto:
 
Profoto releases the B1 Location Kit, making the highly portable B1 off- camera flash even easier to bring to an on-location shoot.
 
May 12, 2014 – Ever since its release in November 2013, the B1 off-camera flash has flown off the shelves as fast as Profoto has been able to deliver it to the stores. The most attention-grabbing features have always been the B1’s TTL metering and its cordless operation. Both of these convey the same message: the B1 is not a studio flash. It is an off-camera flash designed for on-location photography.
 
With the release of the B1 Location Kit, the B1’s portability is taken to the next level. The kit contains two B1 off-camera flashes, two batteries, a Fast Charger that recharges the battery in one hour, and a Car Charger that plugs into any standard car cigarette connector and recharges the battery in two hours. The gear is packed and delivered in a comfy backpack with room for additional gear not included in the kit, such as stands and lenses.
 
The B1 Location Kit comes with a streamlined price. Sold at €2950/$3950, the kit offers roughly €250/$200 discount compared to buying the included items separately.
 
The B1 Location Kit is the latest addition to Profoto’s growing and evolving off-camera flash concept. In November 2013, the B1 and its many accessories were launched. In April 2014, the first firmware upgrade was released, enabling TTL metering with the Canon EOS- 1D X.
 
Profoto is now working on a firmware upgrade that will enable high-speed sync (HSS). Profoto is also busy developing the new Air Remote TTL-N that will enable TTL metering with Nikon cameras. Both the HSS upgrade and the Air Remote TTL-N are expected to be released in 2014. New Light Shaping Tools, optimized for off-camera flashes, are also on their way.
 
B&H has the Profoto B1 Location Kit available for preorder.
