From the B&H YouTube Channel:
 
In this video, Jake from B&H takes the brand new DJI Spark for a spin, and it just happens to be his first time flying a drone. For a new pilot, the Spark features easy-to-use gesture controls, positioning systems, and tracking modes. It's extremely small size and light weight also make it one of the most portable drones around, plus it's capable of recording 1080p video.
 
B&H has the DJI Spark (Alpine White) in stock.

While Nikon's development release was devoid of any specific details regarding new features to be expected in the D850, a video posted to their various YouTube channels highlights at least one new feature – 8K time-lapse videos.

In a recent blog post on LinkedIn, CEO of 3 Legged Thing Danny Lenihan explains why their new product – the QR11-LC Universal L-Bracket – costs $49.99 while competing products from China cost significantly less. He also goes on to explain the impact of widespread intellectual property theft on the photographic accessory market (as well as other industries).
 
From LinkedIn:
In the last couple of weeks my little brand, 3 Legged Thing, launched a brand new Universal L Bracket - the QR11. For the most part, the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
 
Then, somebody sent me a link to a well known forum, where a conversation had started about the press release for the QR11. The comments were almost wholly negative with more than one contributor stating “You can buy this from **insert website name** for $7? or “I got one from China for $5 and it works just fine”.
 
Fantastic. What you actually did is perpetuate a cycle of intellectual property theft, and put your own equipment at risk by using something that has zero accountability, or any certification, made with unknown materials, in a factory where you have no idea what the conditions are like. That’s what you did. I’ll take you through it, step by step, so you can understand.
Read the entire article on LinkedIn.

In a press release with lots of fluff and very little substance, Nikon has announced that they are developing an update to the D810. [Sean]
 
From Nikon:
 
TOKYO – July 25, 2017 –Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the development of the next-generation full-frame, high-resolution, high-speed digital SLR cameras with the upcoming release of the highly anticipated Nikon D850.
 
The D850 will be a formidable tool for creators who will not compromise on exceptional image quality and versatility, including aspiring and professional photographers, as well as hobbyists, who shoot landscapes, commercial sports, fashion and weddings, and multimedia content creators.
 
The D850 is the successor to the D810, which was highly praised by its users for offering extremely sharp and clear rendering, with rich tone characteristics. This powerful new FX-format digital SLR camera is engineered with a range of new technologies, features and performance enhancements that are a direct result of feedback from users over the years – who demand the very best from their camera equipment. The D850 will exceed the expectations of the vast range of photographers that seek the high resolution and high-speed capabilities that only a Nikon of this caliber complemented by NIKKOR lenses can offer.

From Nikon:
 
Nikon D600 / D610
 
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.02 to 1.03 (D600) and 1.01 to 1.02 (D610)
 
  • Added support for the following features of AF-P lenses:
    • If the standby timer expires after the camera has focused, the focus position will not change when the timer is reactivated.
    • In manual focus mode, the focus indicator in the viewfinder (or in live view, the focus point selected in the monitor) will flash to show that infinity or the minimum focus distance has been reached by rotating the focus ring.
  • Added support for AF-P DX lenses.
  • Fixed the following issues:
    • Optimal exposure would sometimes not be achieved in photos taken in live view using a lens with electromagnetically controlled aperture (type E lenses).
    • When used to take pictures after an option was selected for Custom Setting d10 (Exposure delay mode) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU, Camera Control Pro 2 would sometimes display the error “The camera was not able to take a picture.” despite having actually taken the picture.
Note: Due to the possibility of this firmware update breaking compatibility with some third party lenses, you may want to keep an older version of the firmware on-hand just in case you need to roll back the update. (thanks Richy)
