"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending September 14th, 2013
 
In the news...
 
On Monday, LensRentals announced they were opening a new office in Brentwood near Nashville, TN. If you live in the Nashville area, you will have the opportunity to pick up and drop off your rentals in person to avoid shipping charges.
 
On Tuesday, Canon Professional Services USA notified CPS members of upcoming program changes. Some of the changes include getting rid of paper vouchers for maintenance cleanings, shortening evaluation loan times, and modifying repair discounts for Gold and Platinum members.
 
In site news and reviews...
 
On Tuesday, Bryan published his full review of the Canon EOS 70D. Bryan was very impressed by the 70D’s responsive, full-featured autofocus system and image quality that seemed “just right.” For all the details, check out 70D’s full review.
 
On Wednesday, yours truly published a full review on the Spiffy Gear Light Blaster. The Light Blaster allows you to use items you probably already own – a flash and a DSLR lens – to project transparent slides onto any surface. You can use the Light Blaster to easily transform a drab background into something more intriguing. Check out the Light Blaster review for more information.
 
On Thursday, Bryan published a tutorial on how to create natural-looking HDR photos using any image editing program that allows you to create layers and masks. Want to keep the detail in your shadows without blowing the highlights in your next landscape photo? Check out Bryan’s tutorial to see how.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Wednesday, we posted a deal from BuyDig.com where you could get a Canon 5D Mark III, EF 24-105mm f/4L IS, PIXMA PRO-100 printer, photo paper and an Adobe software bundle for $3,499.00 after rebate. Considering that a 5D Mark III sells for that retail price all by itself, the bundle was an especially good deal.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"

Canon Professional Services Logo
From Canon Professional Services (USA):
 
Since announcing the changes to the CPS program a few days ago, we have been monitoring feedback from our membership base. Please see below for additional information regarding the upcoming changes to the CPS program.
 
Effective Date for the New CPS Benefits Structure
The new CPS member benefit structure will become effective for all members on October 1, 2013.
 
Equipment Evaluation Loan Period
To allow for transit times, the period for equipment evaluation loans will be ten days, starting when the loaned product is shipped to you and ending when we receive the loaned product back.
 
Handling of Clean and Check Coupons that Have Not Yet Been Used
From October 1, 2013 until the end of your current membership term, the entire annual Canon Maintenance Service (CMS) benefit will be available for you to use (10 pieces of cameras or lenses for Platinum members and 5 pieces for Gold members). Since the number of CMS transactions allowed under the new benefits structure is greater than the previous number of Clean and Check coupons, the coupons will no longer be needed.
 
Shipping Charges for Canon Maintenance Service (CMS)
Shipping charges for eligible CMS requests will be handled in the same manner as eligible product repair requests. Platinum level members will receive free shipping for both inbound and return. Gold level members will receive free return shipping service.
 
Annual Repair Limits
From October 1, 2013 until the end of your current membership term, the entire annual repair limit benefit will be available for you to use (15 pieces for Platinum members and 10 pieces for Gold members).
 
We appreciate your feedback and understanding while we transition to the new program benefits.

The-Digital-Picture.com Facebook Discussion
Today we're going to start something new - a discussion post. We'll post a topic and you're invited to sound off on our Facebook page.
 
What was the key feature that drove you to upgrade from your previous camera or caused you to choose a higher end model in the lineup?
 
Was it the AF system? Full-frame sensor? Burst rate? Build quality, weather sealing, electronic level, or something completely different?
 
Tell us what the catalyst was for your upgrade (and why) on our Facebook page.

Canon EOS 70D Sample Pictures
The whole point of having camera gear is to take pictures. And posting pictures is one of those tasks I'm significantly backlogged on right now. To make a tiny dent in the project, I have added a handful of Canon EOS 70D sample pictures to the review.
 
I usually try to add educational and/or interesting commentary to the photos. Be sure to look AND read.

SanDisk Extreme Pro 256GB 160MB/s CompactFlash Memory Card
From SanDisk:
 
SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash Cards Are Optimized For Cinema-Quality 4K Video Recording
 
PMA, MELBOURNE, Australia, Sept. 12, 2013 – SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK)), a global leader in flash memory storage solutions, today announced the availability of the 256GB SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash memory card, the world’s first high-capacity, high-performance CompactFlash card with the latest Video Performance Guarantee (VPG-65) specification. Also being announced by SanDisk today are faster speeds across all other capacities of the SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash line of memory cards.
 
"SanDisk has been at the forefront with storage solutions that enable the broader adoption of new video capture technologies. We always design our SanDisk Extreme Pro cards with professional photographers and videographers in mind," said Susan Park, director, mobile and imaging worldwide retail product marketing, SanDisk. "Cinema-quality 4K video capture demands tremendous performance and capacity, which is exactly what we have delivered with the new 256GB SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash card."
 
The card delivers minimum sustained write speeds of 65MB/s, optimized to capture 4K and Full HD video. The 256GB SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash card has industry-leading transfer speeds of up to 160MB/s, designed to dramatically improve workflow efficiencies, and delivers fast shot speeds of up to 140MB/s for advanced functions such as fast action and continuous burst mode shots.
 
"The speed and capacity of SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash cards, as well as the ability to shoot and store 4K video directly to a CompactFlash card, are a major step forward for professional photographers and videographers,” said Sam Nicholson, founder, Stargate Studios. "My work rarely allows for a second chance to capture a big shot or important footage, so when I select SanDisk memory cards, I’m trusting them with assets that are essential to me and my clients."
 
SanDisk Extreme Pro memory cards are designed for professionals and are backed by a lifetime limited warranty. The cards are durability tested, include RTV silicone coating inside for added protection against shock and vibration, and perform in extreme temperatures from minus 13 degrees Fahrenheit to 185 degrees Fahrenheit. The cards also include a one year downloadable offer for RescuePRO media recovery software, which lets photographers recover their images in case of accidental deletion.
 
Increased Speeds Across the Product Line
To coincide with the launch of the 256GB SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash card, SanDisk is increasing the speed across each capacity of the SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash line. The other SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash cards, available in capacities of 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, will now feature read speeds of up to 160MB/s4 and write speeds of up to 150MB/s, as well as the same VPG as the 256GB card.
 
Pricing and Availability
SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash cards are available in capacities of 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB, and are shipping worldwide now with MSRPs of $219.99 to $1,809.99.
