Apologies for the lateness of this roundup. Your reporter is pursuing bald eagles along the Hudson river these days, which takes up most mornings.
Profoto announced the B2, a combo of a battery pack and an off-camera flash that can also be used on camera. Links to the system below. A kit starts at $2200.
The Photography Blog reviewed the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II. So, the site calls the camera a five-star ‘essential’ piece of gear, but has doubts about the price, especially considering the competition, including Olympus’ own E-M1, Fuji’s X-T1 and Panasonic’s GH4. B&H
Olympus posted its announced firmware update for the E-M1, increasing the continuous shooting speed and improving AF tracking in continuous mode.
As predicted in my comparison piece a while back, Canon is bringing the price of the 5D Mark III in line with the comparable Nikon D750, at least for now. Prices drop by $300 plus a temporary (?) $300 instant savings. The Canon 6D drops $100 in price and comes with a similar $300 instant rebate. The new D7 Mark II gets $100 off for now and several other cameras also see savings.
