Epson SureColor P600 Professional Photo Printer
From Epson:
 
Epson SureColor P600 Leverages Next-Generation Epson UltraChrome HD Ink to Deliver Exhibition-Quality Prints with Unprecedented Black Density
 
LONG BEACH, Calif. – Oct. 28, 2014 – Epson today announced the industry’s most advanced 13-inch photo printer – the Epson SureColor P600. Designed for creative professionals, fine artists, and advanced amateur and pro photographers, the SureColor P600 combines an advanced MicroPiezo AMC printhead with next-generation Epson UltraChrome HD pigment inks driven by enhanced AccuPhotoTM HD imaging technology to produce exhibition-quality black-and-white prints with never before seen pigment black density and stunningly vivid color prints.
 
“The Epson SureColor P600 was designed to not only meet, but exceed the capabilities of today’s exceptional digital image captures by producing prints with the superior level of quality our customers have come to expect,” said Larry Kaufman, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America. “With the advent of next-generation Epson UltraChrome HD inks and unrivaled fine art and roll paper support, the Epson SureColor P600 is poised to represent the new benchmark in desktop photographic printing.”
 
Advanced media handling, including a front-in and front-out paper path, enables borderless photos with exceptional clarity and sharpness up to 13”x19” on a wide variety of glossy, matte and fine art papers, while improved roll paper support allows for breathtaking panoramas over 10 feet long for Windows and Mac users. In addition, custom images can be created and printed directly onto canvas, art boards and CD/DVDs.
 
The Epson SureColor P600 also offers new ease-of use features and capabilities, such as a 3.5-inch tilting color LCD and touch panel and unparalleled connectivity options for its class, making it easy to print from a home office or studio via USB, Wireless n1, Wi-Fi Direct, or wired Ethernet. High-capacity individual 25.9-mililiter ink cartridges with an innovative Save Ink auto-switching Mode between Photo and Matte Black inks is also available to drive productivity.
 
Designed to provide unmatched performance, exhibition quality and professional media support, the Epson SureColor P600 offers several innovative features, including:
 
  • Epson UltraChrome HD Ink: Industry leading professional eight-color ink set delivers rich color and a black density never before seen from a pigment ink. Built on Epson’s heritage of professional ink technology, this ink set offers instant color stability and exceptional print permanence ratings for color and black-and-white prints. Three-level Black ink technology simultaneously uses Black, Light Black and Light Light Black ink for richer blacks and unsurpassed gray balance.
  • Advanced Media Handling: The SureColor P600 features three paper paths, including a high-capacity, cut-sheet feeder; a single-sheet, front-in, front-out thick paper path for fine art media up to 1.3 mm thick; and a rear-mounted 2-inch core roll feeder. Allows users to print full-bleed, borderless cut-sheet prints up to 13”x19” on a wide variety of photographic and fine art paper, including Epson’s line of Signature Worthy papers. It also offers enhanced roll paper printing up to 129-inches long for both Mac and Windows users, for gorgeous panoramas, as well as CD/DVD printing.
  • AccuPhoto HD Image Technology: Created in collaboration with the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Munsell Color Science Laboratory, this complex mathematical architecture and advanced screening technology ensures precision placement of each individual ink droplet for smooth, grain-free images. This technology optimizes ink usage to maximize color gamut and provide smooth transitions and gradations, and reduces the metameric index to achieve consistent color under different lighting conditions.
  • MicroPiezo AMC Printhead: The eight-channel, high-precision printhead produces a maximum resolution of 5670 x 1440 optimized dpi and variable-sized droplets as small as two picoliters and places them with precision and accuracy. For decreased maintenance and increased reliability, the printhead also incorporates an ink repellent coating.
  • Intelligent High-Capacity Ink System: Nine individual 25.9 ml ink cartridges with pressurized ink technology ensures reliable ink delivery at all print speeds.
  • Auto-Switching Black Inks: The Epson SureColor P600 automatically switches between Photo and Matte black inks to produce the deepest blacks and richest color on glossy, matte or fine art media, and an innovative Save Ink Mode uses less ink when switching from Matte Black to Photo Black.
  • Unparalleled Connectivity: Built-in 100 Mbit Ethernet, Wi-Fi Direct, Wireless n1 and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 provide flexible options for fast connectivity to multiple computers in a home or studio.
  • Advanced Black-and-White Photo Mode: Professionals can choose from one of four pre-set modes – neutral, warm, cool, or sepia – for stunning neutral or toned black-and-white prints. This feature provides intuitive and consistent control through custom slider bars and a color tone wheel for advanced tone adjustment. In addition, customized settings can be saved and recalled to achieve consistent prints, and using the optional downloadable Epson Print Layout software, users can automatically preview personal images with the selected settings.
Pricing, Availability and Support
 
The Epson SureColor P600 will be demonstrated for the first time in North America at PhotoPlus Expo (booth #701), taking place Oct. 30 – Nov. 1 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City, and will be available for purchase in Q1 2015 through authorized resellers for $799 (MSRP). The printer is supported by a one-year whole-unit exchange limited warranty plan and specialized technical support staff.

Canon EOS 1D X DSLR Camera
The last round of Canon rebates (which expired October 25) have been extended. This time around, however, many of the rebates have actually gone up.
 
And in an unprecedented move, the not-yet-available 7D Mark II qualifies for a lens combination rebate. And in another first, Canon's top-of-the-line 1-series body also qualifies for a huge mail-in rebate – $800.00, to be exact. See below for all the details.
 
The following DSLRs qualify for a mail-in rebate when purchased alone or in a standard lens kit:
 
The following DSLRs qualify for special lens combination rebates:
 
Qualifying lenses for combination rebates:
 
Keep in mind – the lens combination rebates are stackable with the body-only rebates. That means that if you buy a Canon EOS 6D and an EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM, you would qualify for a total of $450.00 in rebates ($200.00 body + $250.00 lens combo rebate).

Phottix Indra500 TTL Light
From Phottix:
 
U.S. introduction of Indra500 delivers new levels of power and versatility for professional photographers whether on location or in the studio
 
New York, NY (October 28, 2014) – Phottix announces the versatile new Phottix Indra500, a powerful 500 Watt-second Studio Flash designed with essential features that any on-the-go photographer will appreciate. Significant among these features is its built-in TTL Flash Triggering operation designed for use with both Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras, thanks to its award-winning Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger technology.
 
The new Indra500 TTL Light also features High Speed Sync up to 1/8000 second and 8 stops of versatile power adjustment from full-power to 1/128 power. Significantly too the flexible Indra500 can be powered by either a Li-ion Battery or an AC Adapter, making this new light perfect for use in the studio or on location.
 
“Having High Speed Sync on a studio light is a game changer for helping photographers control ambient light,” said Phottix CEO Steve Peer. “We’re very happy with the Indra500 TTL because it provides photographers with a lot of power and many control options.”
 
Features:
 
  • 500Ws Studio Light
  • TTL, Manual and Stroboscopic Modes
  • High Speed Sync – 1/8000s shutter speeds
  • Second Curtain Sync
  • Adjust +/- 3 EV
  • Manual Power 1/128 to Full Power in 1/3 Stops
  • Wireless Radio Power Control with Phottix Odin and Mitros+ systems
  • Odin for Canon and Nikon Receivers Built in
  • Phottix Strato II Receiver Built in
  • LED Modeling Light
  • Battery and AC Adapter Powered
  • 400 full-power shots when using 5000 mAh Indra Battery Pack, 2 second recycle times
The Phottix Indra500 TTL was developed for photographers on the move. Developed with input from some of the industries biggest names, the Indra500 TTL packs a lot of punch for its 4 lbs. 10.1 ounces weight.
 
Use TTL to shoot during fast moving events like weddings. Shoot on-location, under harsh sun and control ambient light with high-speed sync. Shoot wide-open with shutter speeds up to 1/8000s. The built-in Phottix Odin Receiver for Canon and Nikon makes the Indra500 TTL easy to control and trigger.
 
The Indra500 TTL offers 8 stops of power adjustment – from full power to 1/128 – perfect for overcoming midday sun or adding just a hint of light when shooting with large apertures. TTL exposures can be adjusted in +/- 3 EV levels.
 
High Speed and Second Curtain Sync
Traditional studio lights have limited shutter speeds to 1/200-1/250s. On location these speeds make balancing ambient light a challenge, having to sacrifice desired depth of field to get proper exposure. With the Phottix Indra500 TTL’s High Speed Sync function photographers can shoot at speeds up to 1/8000s, allowing wider apertures while still being able to control ambient light.
 
The Indra500 TTL’s Second Curtain Sync Functions brings untold functionality to the table. Photographers can’t do that with a traditional studio light. Flash bracketing and flash exposure lock can all be used to help get that perfect shot. With Stroboscopic Mode, the Phottix Indra can be used for special effects and creative images with flash frequency of 1-100HZ and flash count of 1-100 times.
 
Built-in triggering
The Phottix Indra500 TTL has the power and control of the award-winning Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger inside. Switch between TTL and Manual modes, adjust EV and manual power levels, use high speed sync and second curtain sync, all from the Phottix Odin TCU or Mitros+ Flash unit. With the Phottix Odin receivers for Canon and Nikon built-in, no extra hardware is needed.
 
Phottix Strato II users can also trigger the Indra500 TTL. With a Strato II receiver built into the Indra, Strato II transmitters can trigger the studio light in manual mode. An optical slave mode is also available. A 3.5mm sync port rounds out the Phottix Indra’s triggering offerings – it’s compatible with most major triggering systems.
 
Battery Pack and AC Adapter
The new Indra series from Phottix offers cutting-edge accessories for both the Indra500 TTL Studio Light and Mitros series flashes, starting with the Indra Battery Pack and AC Adapter. The Indra Battery Pack provides a lot of power in a compact unit. When used with the Indra500 TTL Studio Light it allows photographers to shoot 340 full power shots. Its dual power ports can power two Indra500 TTL Studio Lights simultaneously, perfect for on-location work.
 
The Battery Pack’s LED display provides instant visual feedback on power remaining in the 5000 mAh or 10000 mAh cells. The Battery Pack’s USB charging port allows for easy charging of smart phones or tablets. The Indra Battery Pack can also power hot shoe flashes. With cables compatible for Phottix, Canon, Nikon or Sony flashes, the battery pack offer ultra-fast flash recycle times for small flashes.
 
The Indra AC Adapter can power two Indra500 TTL studio lights in 110 or 220V environments – great for studio use, and provides added functionality for flashes – super-fast recycle times.
 
The Indra AC Adapter can also feed AC power directly into hot shoe flashes for lightning fast recharge times. Battery power is no longer an issue. The perfect accessory for using hot shoe flashes in the studio.
 
The Indra series of products is part of Phottix’s new PhottixPro line-up of products. PhottixPro products will be the company’s most innovative and technologically advanced.
 
The Indra500 TTL Studio Light, Indra Battery Pack and Indra AC Adapter will be available in October 2014. Indra500 TTL Light and Battery Set will be priced at $1295 USD.
 
B&H has the Phottix Indra500 TTL Light available for preorder.

From Nikon:
 
Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that its flagship digital SLR camera, the Nikon D4S, supports the next-generation, high-speed Ver. 2.0 specification for XQD memory cards.
 
XQD Ver. 2.0 is a next-generation specification for XQD memory cards announced by the CompactFlash Association (CFA) on February 13, 2014. This new specification enables faster read and write rates than does the current XQD specification. The new specification also uses a dual interface, PCIe Gen2 and USB 3.0 format, making it easier to use with computer devices including card readers, and allowing for high-speed transfer of images to a computer.
 
Sony G series XQD memory cards announced on September 12, 2014 will support the XQD Ver. 2.0 specification.
 
Support for the XQD Ver. 2.0 specification by the Nikon D4S enables faster write times, as well as the ability to capture more shots with continuous shooting, when XQD Ver. 2.0 memory cards are used.
 
Though the Nikon D4 does not support this new specification, mutual compatibility between current XQD memory cards and XQD Ver. 2.0 memory cards means that the same level of performance available with current XQD cards is possible when XQD Ver. 2.0 memory cards are used with the D4.
