This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending April 13th, 2013
 
In the news...
 
On Monday, Canon released a firmware update for the Canon 6D. The new firmware addresses a bug that would cause the 6D to spontaneously request confirmation of the date and time settings even after the settings were already configured.
 
Also on Monday, Red Rock Micro announced its newest product – the One Mane Crew. The One Man Crew is a slide system that runs automatically keeping the subject in focus thanks to its parabolic track. The device promises to deliver cinematic results with minimal resources.
 
On Wednesday, PocketWizard announced its beta firmware release plan update. PocketWizard plans to update the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 for compatibility with the Nikon D600, D5200, D3200, the Canon 6D and T4i, and provide HyperSync Improvements for both systems.
 
On Friday, we posted a news announcement about newly purchased Canon lenses arriving with the Mark II center-pinch lens caps. Long-time Canon customers will surely be happy with this change.
 
In site news and reviews...
 
Bryan continued to highlight his updated lens recommendation pages this week. Bryan highlighted his lens recommendations for weddings, outdoor sports, indoor sports, macro subjects, wildlife, and landscapes. And on Saturday, Bryan also highlighted what he considers to be “bargain buys” in the lens world.
 
On Monday, Bryan posted an update regarding his Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC lens standardized testing. In the end, the lens provided very impressive image quality results – but the difficulty in obtaining a trouble-free copy of the lens indicates Tamron may have some quality control issues to address.
 
On Thursday, Bryan responded to questions as to whether or not the Canon 85 f/1.2 L’s autofocus was acceptable for sports use. In short, when paired with a very capable body like the 1D X, the lens provides decent results even in moderately challenging conditions.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Friday, we posted promotional deals from Adorama where you could get several popular items at significant savings. The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM was an especially good deal – only $1,949.00 with free shipping, 2% Rewards, and a free Red Giant Production software bundle.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!

Canon EF 85mm L II USM Lens Sample Picture
Since we were discussing the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Lens yesterday, I thought I would put up some fresh sample pictures for that lens. Hopefully you will find them - or one of the included tips - interesting and helpful.

For a limited time, DigitalRev has the Lumiquest LQ-114 Speedlite Snoot available for $10.90. Compare at $23.95.
 
Note: From what I have read, this product ships with self-adhesive velcro tabs that enable the snoot to be affixed to your shoe-mount flash. In my opinion, that's a less-than-optimal solution. This will be a much better and more versatile tool if you already own a velcro strap for your flash - like the LumiQuest UltraStrap or, my personal favorite, the Honl Photo Speed Strap. -Sean

Canon EOS M Mirrorless Camera with 22mm STM Lens
eBay (via BigValueInc) has the Canon EOS M Mirrorless Camera w/ 22mm STM Lens available for $399.99 with free shipping. Compare at $529.00.
 
Caveat Emptor: BigValueInc's positive feedback rating is at 98.2%. However, eBay seems to trust them enough to continue listing their auctions as "Daily Deals."
