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.

The team over at Camera Technica posted a video showing Canon's image stabilization in action. Granted, the video was posted two years ago - but "IS" systems still work the same way today (and the video is rather mesmerizing to watch).
 
See Camera Technica's full article on image stabilization.

The Canon Store has increased its 90-day warranty to a full 1-year warranty on all refurbished DSLR Cameras, Lenses/Flashes, and Camcorders. According to the Canon representative I talked to this morning, all eligible refurbished gear purchased after June 24 qualifies for the 1-year warranty.
 
The Canon Store is a great resource for buying like-new gear at reduced prices. The increased warranty is a welcomed additional benefit. (thanks Steve)

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending July 13th, 2013
 
In the news...
 
On Thursday, Nikon introduced its interactive Facebook experience called “My Nikon World,” a photographic community with features such as photo challenges, leader boards, and competition badges. Check out Nikon’s Facebook page for more information.
 
In site news and reviews...
 
On Monday, Bryan posted the image quality comparison tests for the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM “Sports” Lens. In short, the new lens is proving to be a little bit better than its predecessor. Check the image quality tests for more comparisons.
 
On Thursday, Bryan posted his full review for the Canon EOS Rebel SL1. The tiny camera (in DSLR terms, at least), provides pro-grade image quality that stacks up well against all of Canon’s recent APS-C sensor cameras. Its small size and intuitive controls make it an excellent travel camera. Check out Bryan’s full-review for more details.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Monday, we posted a deal from BuyDig.com where you could get a Canon Rebel T5i with 18-55mm IS STM lens, Adobe Photoshop Elements & Premiere Elements 11, 32GB SD card, Canon PIXMA PRO-100 Professional Inkjet Printer, a pack of Canon photo paper, and two 4GB flash drives for $749.00 with free shipping (after $400.00 mail-in rebate). When you consider that the body alone retails for the same price, the package provides one heck of a deal.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
