From the Nikon Europe YouTube Channel:
 
This video was shot using the brilliant 16-megapixel COOLPIX AW120. Follow the AW120 as it explores the ocean depths in Indonesia and snowy slopes in Japan. The brilliant Wi-Fi enabled AW120 is waterproof to 18m, shockproof to 2m and freeze-proof to -10°C - making it the perfect travel companion.
 
B&H has the Nikon COOLPIX AW120 Waterproof All-Weather Camera available for pre-order.

Canon EOS Rebel T5 / 1200D DSLR Camera
Specifications and product images (including comparisons of both) have been added to the Canon EOS Rebel T5 / 1200D Review page.
 
Perhaps most relevant is the Canon EOS Rebel T5 vs. T3 comparison.
 
And perhaps most interesting, as suggested by commenter "SLClick", is the Canon EOS Rebel T5 vs. T2i comparison. "I loved the T5 from the moment I saw it. When it was called a T2i." [SLClick] These cameras are very similar from a specifications perspective.

Nikon has published a compatibility notice regarding the EN-EL14a lithium-ion battery. In short, cameras compatible with the older EN-EL14 battery are compatible with the new EN-EL14a battery (although some require a firmware update).
 
What Nikon fails to mention in the compatibility notice is that upgrading your camera's firmware may cause your camera to be incompatible with third-party batteries.
 
From Nikon:
 
The EN-EL14a rechargeable Li-ion battery can be used in place of the EN-EL14 rechargeable Li-ion battery.
 
The EN-EL14a battery life has been improved by up to 20% compared to an EN-EL14 battery (depending on the camera model and shooting conditions). Both batteries can be charged using the MH-24 battery charger.
 
All cameras that currently use the EN-EL14 can also be used with the EN-EL14a. See the following for further information regarding EN-EL14a compatibility with each camera.
 
D5200, D5100, D3200, D3100, COOLPIX P7700- By upgrading firmware, EN-EL14a performance is maximized and more images can be captured (battery performance) when an EN-EL14a is used than when an EN-EL14 is used.

  • D5200 - Firmware C: 1.01 or later
  • D3200 - Firmware C: 1.02 or later
  • D5100 - Firmware A: 1.02/ B: 1.01 or later
  • D3100 - Firmware A :1.02/ B 1.01 or later
  • COOLPIX P7700 - Firmware version 1.3 or later
  • COOLPIX P7000 or P7100 - Although firmware enabling support for the EN-EL14a will not be released, the battery can be used with these cameras. However, the camera's battery indicator may quickly reach the half-charge point on its display.
  • COOLPIX P7800 - The camera already supports the EN-EL14a from the time it was initially released, so does not require a firmware update.
  • Nikon Df, D5300, D3300 - An EN-EL14a is included with purchase. The EN-EL14 can also be used with these cameras.

B&H carries the Nikon EN-EL14a battery.

Commercial photographer Thorsten Ott has created a six part video series explaining the use of various modifiers for indoor and outdoor portraiture.
 
If you're just getting into portrait lighting, this will be an especially good introduction into various lighting tools and techniques.

From the Flickr blog:
 
It’s a real ‘modern-day’ love story: Boy takes a photo and posts it online. Girl randomly finds it and comments on the photo. They talk, meet and fall in love. Four years later, boy asks girl to marry him. And it all happened thanks to Flickr.
