Weekend Recap for Nov. 3 - 9, 2013

This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending November 9th, 2013.
 
In the news...
 
On Tuesday, Nikon finally announced their retro-styled full-frame camera – the 16.2 megapixel Df, along with a redesigned 50mm f/1.8 special edition lens. The Df combines design elements inspired by Nikon’s classic “F” series with modern technology borrowed from the D4. The camera features a robust design with mechanical dials for ISO, shutter speed, and exposure compensation. The Df will hit the shelves later this month with an MSRP of $2,749.95 (body only) or right at three grand for the camera & 50mm f/1.8 SE lens kit.
 
Also on Tuesday, Profoto announced their TTL enabled, battery-powered and completely cordless off-camera flash – the B1. The B1’s battery will give you up to 220 full-power (500 watt-second) flashes from a single charge and recycles in less than 2 seconds. The B1 will be available in December for a suggested retail price of $1,995.00.
 
On Thursday, Tamron announced the development of its SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD lens. The lens features an optical construction of 20 elements in 13 groups with 3 Low Dispersion glass elements, a compact design, and a redesigned tripod mount. Unfortunately, the release date and price are as of yet, unknown.
 
On Friday, we posted a screenshot of Canon Korea’s teaser page and asked – what do you think it is? So far, most people believe the soon-to-be-announced camera is a white Rebel-series camera. We probably won’t have to wait much longer to find out…
 
In site news and reviews...
 
On Wednesday, we asked for your most challenging shot stories. We want to know what challenges you faced when capturing your toughest shot.
 
Our first visitor-submitted challenging shot story was posted the following day and involved the complexities of shooting a Tesla machine and theatre performance.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Friday, we posted a deal from DigitalRev where you could get Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens for $769.00. That’s a $130.00 savings off the normal retail price.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!
