Weekend Recap for March 10-16, 2013


 
Because of weekend travel arrangements, the Weekend Update's publication had to be postponed until Monday.

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending March 16th, 2013.
 
In the news...
 
On Monday, Spider Camera Holster announced the Spider Monkey accessory holster. The Spider Monkey allows photographers to affix commonly needed accessories - like flashes, light meters, or external battery packs - to any belt for fast and easy access.
 
On Tuesday, we reported on Canon’s 1 Million Minutes Watched video posted to YouTube. Canon created the video to celebrate 1 Million Minutes watched on its YouTube channel.
 
On Thursday, Nikon posted firmware updates for its UT-1 Communication Unit and WR-RT10 Remote Controller Transceiver. Both firmware updates provide support for the D7100 and, in the case of the WR-RT10, provide a few additional features when paired with the WR-1.
 
In reviews...
 
On Monday, Bryan posted a review of a backpack with a not-so-obvious pronunciation – the Bataflae 32L from Gura Gear. Bryan reviewed the bag after putting it through its paces during a photographic journey through 'The Aloha State.'
 
Bryan gave the Bataflae 32L high regards because of its convenient size, high quality materials, durable construction, side tripod storage, and comfortable fit.
 
On Tuesday, Bryan posted some notes regarding his experiences using the 5D Mark III camera while in Hawaii. Bryan applauded the 5D III’s lack of sensor dust, built-in horizon level, weather sealing, and high-ISO performance – all of which proved very beneficial while on his trip.
 
And on Wednesday, Bryan added Helicopter Aerial Photography Tips to the website. If you’re planning on photographing Hawaii from the air, be sure to check out Bryan’s helpful hints and find out which aerial charter he personally recommends.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Saturday, we posted a deal where you could get a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens for $764.99. That’s more than a $280.00 savings over the standard retail price.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
