From Manfrotto:
 
Boundless creative freedom for travel-ready professionals and macro photographers on-the-go
 
  • The Befree GT XPRO is the first Manfrotto travel tripod with built-in 90° column for enhanced creative versatility
  • Completes the Befree range of high-performance travel tripods
  • Lightweight, sturdy aluminum and carbon fiber versions in an impressive compact size
Upper Saddle River, NJ – September 10, 2019 - Manfrotto, world leader in the photography, imaging equipment and accessories industry, introduces the Befree GT XPRO Travel Tripod Kit. Dedicated to professional travel photographers who are always ready to set off on challenging creative adventures, this new addition to the Befree family enables photographers to unleash their creativity. By combining the sturdiness and reliability of the Befree GT series with the versatility of Manfrotto's celebrated 90° column, this compact professional tripod is unique to the market. The new Befree GT XPRO is a premium travel tripod kit, 100% engineered, designed and manufactured in Italy. This groundbreaking support solution, with its premium quality materials, precision machining and meticulous design, completes the Manfrotto Befree range, further solidifying its position as the premier reference for travel photography support solutions. The Befree GT XPRO comes in the same folded compact size as the successful Befree GT family, measuring only 16.9 inches. It is the first Manfrotto travel tripod developed for on-the-go photographers who shoot macro or low-angle shots and need more versatility. The new Befree GT XPRO travel tripod comes in both aluminum and carbon fiber versions and features intuitive and ergonomic design. This is the first travel tripod to feature both Manfrotto’s innovative 180° foldable legs and its iconic built-in 90° column mechanism, housed in the tripod’s top casting. The 90° column is stored out of the photographer’s way until it is time to create epic visuals with a challenging overhead macro shot or a low-to-the-ground capture. Photographers can keep their new Befree GT XPRO safe and travel-ready in the supplied Befree bag.
 
When it’s time to capture the decisive moment, setting up the Befree GT XPRO is a breeze. Simply twist the legs to securely set it up with the intuitive M-lock system and choose one of the three independent tripod’s ergonomic side-pull selectors. This lightweight tripod provides impeccable performance and impressive stability to assist photographers in capturing their best shots in a solution weighing only 3.88 pounds in carbon fiber or 4.41 pounds in aluminum. The Befree GT XPRO features the Manfrotto 496 Center Ball Head with independent panoramic and friction knobs for smooth movement and remarkable locking power to support an impressive 22.05 pounds of photography gear, including DSLRs or CSCs with zoom lenses. The included 200PL-PRO rubberized plate increases camera grip and makes it fully compatible with Manfrotto's RC2 and Arca-type head attachments. In addition to the new Befree GT XPRO, Manfrotto introduces the Top Lock Traveler Quick Release Adaptor. The new Top Lock Traveler Quick Release Adaptor is the first Arca-Swiss adaptor on the market that is fully compatible with the Befree tripod kit range as well as Manfrotto's 494, 496, and 498 ball heads. Specifically, the MSQ6T is compatible with the MH490-BH, MH494-BHUS, MH496-BHUS, 494RC2 and 498RC2 ball head. Adaptor is compatible with all Arca-type camera plates and L-brackets as well as Manfrotto's 200PL-PRO.
 
The new Befree GT XPRO Travel Tripod Kit and Top Lock Traveler Quick Release Adaptor are the natural choice for professionals with wanderlust whose creativity knows no bounds.

With a forward head tilt and relaxed ears, this bedded whitetail buck looks cute and cuddly, presenting an image perhaps ready for a child's storybook. But, make no mistake, this is a huge ball of muscle ready to violently fight anything it thinks poses a threat to its interests (that right-side G4 tine required significant force to break off). This buck knows exactly what the doe bedded nearby behind it is doing and if another buck moves in or the doe moves away, this big bad boy will be up in a flash.
 
Very positive was that this bedded buck provided a wide range of poses for us, including head rested solidly on the ground, a large yawn, and ears perked in attention.
 
I'm not often a fan of a downward camera angle when photographing wildlife and in this case, getting down to the buck's eye level using a fully-retracted monopod made complete sense. This low/level angle provides a more distant background that can be strongly blurred with a 600mm f/4 lens, allowing the subject to clearly stand out against an even very distracting background. With the subject being stationary, the distance and alignment could be selected and varied. In this case, the leaves on the ground provide a solid base for the image. The large tree trunk on the left and the small tree trunk on the right provide a frame for the subject.
 
Wildlife photography is a great source of stories and this situation brought back a memory from the year before. I was in Shenandoah National Park photographing a different bedded buck from a reasonable distance when it suddenly bolted straight toward me. I jumped behind a tree just as it went past a short distance away. Fortunately, it was not racing after me but instead after a doe. I just happened to be in its path.
 
The shot of adrenaline took a little time to wear off, but the memory is a fun one.
 
Want to photograph these awesome animals and create some stories this fall? Sign up for the "Whitetail Buck in Rut and Much More", Shenandoah National Park instructional photo tour.

Not long ago, the headline above would have seemed ideal for use on April 1st. Today, however, it's real news. [Sean]
 
From Sigma:
 
2019.09.11 - The SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of “FF Classic Prime Line” as a new series in the SIGMA CINE LENS.
 
FF High Speed Prime Line has been offering the highest resolving power in its class, that is compatible with 8K shooting with large format sensors, while achieving outstanding compact design. Based on this product line, the FF Classic Prime Line incorporates more non-coated optical elements to achieve unrivaled expression. It retains the high resolution capability that SIGMA CINE LENS is well known for, and offers a unique combination of low contrast and artistic flare/ghost in the image. As with all other lenses from the FF High Speed Prime Line, it creates beautiful bokeh effects to improve creativity.
 
FF Classic Prime Line has implemented newly developed coatings on the glass elements and offers consistent T value across the lineup (14mm and 135mm at T3.2 and the rest of the lenses at T2.5). This will greatly contribute to the effective workflow in postproduction. Furthermore, it is compatible with the communication protocol of Cooke “/i Technology”, thus an ideal tool for shooting and editing with the latest technology, such as VFX. A special coating is implemented on the front and rear elements so that the lens durability is ensured as with all other cine lenses from SIGMA.
 
“Classic Art Prime” is a new solution from SIGMA that is required for the most advanced technology for classical expression. The “look” that FF Classic Prime Line can offer will enable cinematographers to explore new possibilities in movie creation.
 
From September 13th to 17th, SIGMA is going to display this new product at the IBC 2019 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

I'll not likely ever repeat a shot similar to this one captured on a fall evening in Rocky Mountain National Park.
 
Photographing multiple animals (vs. a single animal) significantly increases the compositional challenge and especially with a 600mm lens in use, having all of the animals in the plane of sharp focus, especially at f/4, is a big challenge. At this moment, these three subjects aligned themselves nicely for me at this moment. The number 3 is meaningful to this discussion in that an odd (vs. even) number of animals often works best compositionally (note that it also works well in landscape photography and in landscaping).
 
When multiple animals are in the frame, interaction between those animals usually increases the image's appeal. If you look carefully at this photo, you will see a quite humorous interaction occurring. The bull is licking the cow who is showing us her shocked face. The cow's yearling is looking intently at the behavior, seemingly very interested in what is happening. The yearling facing the opposite direction somewhat completes a circle (while a portion of the circle of life plays out). Icing on the cake is that the head shadows of the cow and yearling are showing facing each other on the side of the bull.
 
There are two openings remaining for the September elk in rut photo tour, one for each week. The time is rapidly running out, but it's not too late for you to join a small group of passionate wildlife photographers pursuing these awesome animals and the beauty of RMNP. Photographers at all skill levels are invited to join!

The Versatile NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S Delivers Superior Optical Performance, Equipping Nikon Z Series Creators with an Incredibly Sharp, High-Resolution Lens to Explore Wide-Angle Perspectives
 
MELVILLE, NY – Today, Nikon Inc. announced the fast, wide- angle NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S, the latest addition to the ever-expanding NIKKOR Z lineup of lenses. The 24mm f/1.8 S is optimized for capturing everything from cityscapes to environmental portraits and is built to take advantage of Nikon’s large Z-mount, delivering the ultimate combination of fast, bright and sharp performance in nearly all lighting conditions.
 
“The NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S continues our commitment to offering exciting prime lenses to Nikon Z 7 and Z 6 users, while also providing exceptional level of quality achieved by the S-Line of NIKKOR Z lenses,” said Jay Vannatter, Executive Vice President, Nikon Inc. “The combination of wide-angle perspective and a fast f/1.8 aperture is optimal for all types of photography including landscapes, making the NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S a must-have lens to unleash the full potential of the Nikon Z series.”
 
The NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S – A Storyteller’s Dream Lens:
 
The NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S joins the S-Line of high-performance NIKKOR Z lenses, giving creators an essential focal length to add to their kit of fast prime Z-mount lenses. The lens takes advantage of the most advanced NIKKOR technologies to deliver optical superiority, exceptional sharpness, beautiful bokeh and high-resolution across the entire frame, even at maximum aperture.
 
The new NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S was designed for photographers and videographers looking to capture gorgeous wide-angle landscapes or vivid street photography, a travel adventure or a stunning starscape. For videographers and content creators, this popular focal length is a staple for production due to its natural perspective. Thanks to the advantages of the lens’ bright and fast f/1.8 maximum aperture along with the wider Z-mount, Nikon Z series users can capture exceptionally sharp images in dimly lit settings, with a lens that’s ideal for nighttime shooting and astrophotography.
 
The NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S features 9 rounded aperture blades, allowing users to capture beautifully circular bokeh that adds a level of dimensionality to help capture compelling content. Users can confidently explore their creative potential in nearly any landscape thanks to the lens’ reliable dust and drip resistant design, ideal for tough weather conditions. The lens construction also consists of four Aspherical Lens Elements and one Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass element to combat aberration, while Nikon’s patented Nano Crystal Coat helps eliminate ghosting and flare. The 24mm f/1.8 S is further equipped with Nikon’s Multi-Focusing System, which uses two AF drives in tandem to deliver superior resolving power and achieve fast and accurate autofocus, even at minimum focus distance. In addition to achieving the top-notch image quality that storytellers and content creators have come to expect from the S-Line of NIKKOR Z lenses, the NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S is also optimized for video capture. As a popular cinematic focal length, the 24mm f/1.8 S will be a welcome addition to Z series shooters’ arsenals, boasting near-silent stepping motors for ultra-quiet performance, reduced focus breathing, a customizable control ring for smooth control of aperture and exposure compensation and the ability to take advantage of the in-camera 5-axis VR + eVR of the Nikon Z series cameras.
 
Price and Availability
 
The NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S will be available in mid to late October 2019 at a suggested retail price (SRP) of $999.95.

Where there is smoke, there may be drifting! Kinetic friction expert Ryan Litteral leaves a plume of smoke behind his high-powered Formula Drift car while painting new lines on the street.
 
When shooting a fast-moving subject at a relatively long shutter speed (for panning blur), the sharp image rate is typically low. Increasing the number of keepers is the Canon EOS 90D's fast 10 fps continuous shooting speed, a highly-welcomed upgrade from the 80D.
 
In this example, I was evaluating the 90D AF system's ability to select the desired focus point using Auto AF point selection (all 45 AF points active) and ability to select the correct focus distance with a fast-moving subject. The results were very good with the AF point switching nicely while I attempted to track the car in the viewfinder.
