Online Gallery Update

My web presence has long included this blog and a separate online gallery housing a large archive of photographs — perhaps about 3000 of them at last count. Earlier this week the gallery had a technical issue that snowballed and eventually took that gallery completely offline.

During the past few days I have spent way to many hours trying to get the gallery working again, and I have (mostly) succeeded at this point. A new version of the gallery now holds essentially all of the photographs that were at the old gallery. The format is a bit different, though the underlying organization of the images is similar. At this point, the titles of photographs do not display correctly, and you’ll see file names where there used to be titles. This is fixable, but not right away.

If you tried to find the old gallery and couldn’t, thanks for your patience. If you haven’t seen the gallery, feel free to wander over there and take look!

Canon 6D is Arriving – With Price Reductions

Shortly after releasing the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (and the Canon EOS-1DX and assorted other goodies), Canon announced a forthcoming less-expensive full-frame DSLR, the EOS 6D, a 20+ MP with a range of attractive features and a price barely above $2000. Right now site-sponsor B&H is offering a $200 “instant savings” on the Canon EOS 6D Digital Camera with Canon 24-105mm f/4.0L IS Lens bundle that lowers the cost of the lens and camera to only $2,699. The product is also eligible for the B&H “2% reward” – read more about that at the link.

Where does the 6D fit into the Canon eco-system? I think that for many people looking for a first full-frame body, and for many whose primary consideration is purely image quality, the 6D is going to hit the sweet spot. A 20 MP full frame image, assuming you shoot with skill and understand how to post-process, can produce an outstanding print in sizes much larger than the typical user will ever produce. There is every reason to think that the image quality produced by this camera will be essentially indistinguishable from that produced by the fine Canon EOS 5D Mark III. I have not used the camera, but from many reports I have read from those who have had their hands on a copy, it sounds like it will be a fine performer.

Canon ‘Instant Rebates’ on Lenses and Speedlites

There is a new Canon ‘Instant Rebate’ promotion at site sponsor B&H that features a lot of interesting gear at even lower prices than were available during the instant savings promotion that recently ended. In fact, the selection of lenses and electronic flashes and the size of the discounts both seem unusually large. (It is a bit tough to realize that I just bought a lens at $100 off under the previous offer… and it is now available at $150 off! I’ve heard a rumor that some vendors may honor the more recent pricing if you call them, so I may give that a try.)

Click the link to see a newly updated full list of eligible equipment and read more details – or read on to see a list here on my blog. The promotion runs from November 27 through January 7. (Making your purchase from B&H by clicking through these links helps support the blog and does not change your price. Thanks in advance!)
