B&H Photograph is launching its Vacation Head Begin particular with the subtitle “Beat the Rush.” As a part of the promotion, they’ve prolonged all returns on B&H by February 1st, plus applied numerous gross sales. Among the many offers to this point, essentially the most wonderful I’ve seen to this point is the massive sale on SanDisk excessive transportable SSD exhausting drives, making them lower than half the standard value. Those deals are found here. A 2TB transportable SSD for $150 is loopy, and it was once $450.

For some photographers, even full body is small. If that’s true for you, right here’s an attention-grabbing low cost: The Pentax 645Z body and 75mm lens set may be purchased with a $2,700 low cost, for a present value of $4,997.

You could have already missed the autumn foliage, however winter on medium format may be magical too.

Now I’ve a suggestion from the alternative finish of the photographic world – a camera for a very completely different goal, with a a lot smaller sensor. The Insta360 ONE R 1″ Edition motion camera, a GoPro different, is now out there at a reduced value of $220 from $330.

Different Pages of Curiosity

Earlier than the celebrated Nature magazine publishes the year’s best science photographs this December, check out those that caught the editors’ eye in 2021. You’ll see that scientific pictures, slightly than being a dry description of actuality, can have a substantial amount of aesthetic enchantment.

Within the Good Offers and New Gross sales part, I discussed the Insta360 ONE. When you’re undecided what such a camera could be good for, maybe the next video will present some inspiration. On this case, the camera is mounted neither on the selfie stick of a good looking woman nor on the helmet of a motorbike racer, however on the again of an eagle. The eagle flies past the castle in Hohenschwangau, Germany, which was the inspiration for Disney Cinderella Citadel.

Lastly, let’s take to the skies as soon as extra. A while in the past, Peter Juracka – a scientific photographer, hydrologist, mountaineer, and avid drone pilot – determined to mix two of his passions collectively. A ardour for mountains and a ardour for drones. And since Juracka is a madman (sorry, Peter, for saying it right here in public), he took his DJI Phantom 3 Superior with him to one of many highest mountains on the planet, K2. Out of this journey got here a world record in high-altitude drone flying. Though this video shouldn’t be new, it’s positively value watching.

Have an excellent week and good gentle.
