COMING SOON: 3D Printed Canon Eg Eyepiece Extender EC-6 for 7D Mark II 5D Mark III IV 1D X

[update headline="LATEST UPDATE (1.24.17):"]NOW AVAILABLE HERE.[/update]
One of the most popular/visited reviews on our site is the JJC EC-6 Eyecup Eg Extender. We have been getting emails on where this item can be purchased from. If you're not familiar with the eyepiece extender, it extends the eyepiece 5/8" (15mm) from the camera body. This is useful for eyeglass wearers and others to keep the tip of the nose from touching the camera screen. It comes with a small lens for magnification but we removed it because it distorted the viewing of the viewfinder.

I contacted the manufacturer and was informed that the item has been discontinued. Goja, another 3rd party manufacturer that offered the extender, is no longer selling the extender as well. Considering that there are new Canon cameras being released that uses the Eg eyepiece, I do not know why they would stop producing them. That leaves Canon users looking for alternative options and currently, there are none...

Press Release: DJI Announces Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2 Drones

DJI has announced the release of two new drones, the Phantom 4 Pro and the Inspire 2, and both of them are packed with interesting upgrades and features.

Visually the Phantom 4 Pro looks similar to the Phantom 4. The Phantom 4 Pro includes a camera with a 1" 20MP sensor with almost 12 stops of dynamic range and has a mechanical shutter to eliminate rolling shutter effects from fast motion. It can record 4K/60p video at 100 mbps and offers H.265 video compression. The FlightAutonomy feature uses three sets of visual systems to map obstacles in front of, behind and below the drone to help it avoid obstacles, while a Landing Protection function will help it avoid landing on uneven ground or water. It has a maximum speed of 45 mph and a high performance battery provides up to 30 minutes of flight time. It also includes new intelligent flight modes.

For professional and semi-professional drone uses, the Inspire 2 is similar to DJI’s Inspire 1 model. It features a magnesium-aluminum alloy body which increases stiffness while lowering weight and a new battery system allows flight time up to 27 minutes. It also offers a new forward-facing camera that will give the pilot a view for flying while a camera operator can independently control the Zenmuse camera mounted on the main gimbal. It includes a new image processing system, called CineCore 2.0, which improves file processing and supports 5.2K video at 4.2 Gbps for CinemaDNG Raw video capture, as well as support for ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 4444 XQ, H.264, and H.265.

DJI has also released two new Zenmuse cameras for use with the Inspire 2. The Zenmuse X4S includes a 1" 20MP sensor with 11.6 stops of dynamic range, a 24mm F2.8-11 lens and a mechanical shutter. The Zenmuse X5S has a 20.8MP Micro Four Thirds sensor with 12.8 stops of dynamic range, and it supports 8 lenses ranging from wide angles to zooms. A handheld mount will also be available for both cameras in the future.

The Phantom 4 Pro will retail for $1,499 with a standard controller and $1,799 with a high luminance display controller. The Inspire 2 will retail for $2,999 (aircraft only), and $6,198 for the Inspire 2 with the X5S camera, CinemaDNG, and Apple ProRes license, but will be available for $5,999 if ordered before January 1, 2017.

You don't have to wait long as the Phantom 4 Pro will begin shipping one week after launch, the Inspire 2/X5S camera combo will begin shipping in early December, and the Inspire 2 and X4S/X5S cameras sold separately will ship in early January 2017.

All products are available for immediate pre-order: Amazon | B&H Photo

Press Release: GoPro Karma Recalled Due to Drones Losing Power

As if having shipping issues wasn't enough and for those lucky enough to have received a GoPro karma, GoPro just announced a recall of its first-ever drone, the $799 Karma. Approximately 2,500 Karma units sold since October 23rd are impacted. Pretty much, all of them. According to GoPro, a very small number of cases, Karma units lost power during operation.

Recalled Karma drones can be returned to GoPro directly or wherever they were purchased originally for a full refund. Since stock of the Karma has been hard to come by, the company won’t be offering any exchanges for a fixed model; you’ll have to wait until shipments resume “as soon as the issue is resolved.”

The recall is a significant setback for GoPro as it attempts to challenge leader DJI in the drone business and their new Mavic Pro.

Press Release: Nikon Announces AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8E FL ED VR and PC Nikkor 19mm F4E ED Tilt-Shift Lens

Nikon has announced the latest iteration of its 70-200mm F2.8 lens. The AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8E FL ED VR, has a new optical design, improved Vibration Reduction as well as an electromagnetic diaphragm.

The lens has a total of 22 elements, with 6 ED, 1 fluorite and 1 high refractive index element. A Nano Crystal Coat reduces flare and ghosting while fluorine coatings on the front and rear class helps prevent smudging. Vibration Reduction has been improved, now reducing shake by 4 stops (vs 3.5). The electromagnetic diaphragm allows for responsive adjustment and the ability to adjust the aperture in live view and movie mode on all camera bodies.

The second lens Nikon has also announced is the new PC Nikkor 19mm F4E ED tilt-shift lens. This ultra-wide lens offers 97° of coverage and can shift ±12mm and tilt ±7.5°. Unlike the existing PC-E designs, the mechanism for tilt can be rotated independently from the mechanism for shift, allowing the tilt to be set either parallel or perpendicular to the shift. The lens has three ED and two aspherical elements as well as Nano Crystal Coating.

Both the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR and PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED will be available starting in November 2016 for suggested retail prices (SRP) of $2,799.95 and $3,399.95, respectively.

You can preorder from the following sites:
