Weekend Recap for Nov 24 - 30, 2013

This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending November 30th, 2013.
 
In the news...
 
This week began with a flood of holiday deals. Amazon kicked off the week by starting their Black Friday deals the Sunday before Thanksgiving. The unprecedented move led to many retailers starting their Black Friday deals early as well – like Adorama, who started their Black Friday deals the following Wednesday.
 
In other news, on Thursday Canon released their firmware update for the EOS C300 Cinema Camera. Canon originally released the firmware update on November 12th but later pulled the update from their site because of discrepancies in color balance caused by the new firmware. The re-released firmware fixes the color balance issues associated with the previous version.
 
In site news and reviews...
 
On Monday, Bryan posted some Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM “Art” lens eye candy. The review page now features many original images for site visitors to enjoy.
 
On Wednesday, Bryan posted the highly-anticipated image quality results for the Sigma 24-105. Check out the Sigma 24-105’s Review Page for all our standardized tests including image quality, vignetting and distortion.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
Being the week of Black Friday, picking a deal of the week was no small task. We were flooded with tremendous deals from many of our favorite retailers. While many of the deals would qualify for recognition, I picked this week’s deal based on two things: the value represented by the deal and the fact that it’s still available at the time of the Weekend Recap’s publication…
 
On that note, this Saturday we posted a deal from Amazon where you could get the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM lens for $1,799.00 after $300.00 mail-in rebate. Considering that the lens normally retails for $2,499.00, this price represents an excellent value for one of Canon’s most useful, high-performing zoom lenses.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!
