According to Nikon Japan, the Nikon D3300 entry level DSLR has been discontinued (what Google translates as “old products”). That it’s listed as discontinued before an announcement for its replacement has been made could potentially mean an end to the D3x00 line.

Brand new unopened cameras are not uncommon on eBay, and usually aren’t that big a deal, unless that camera is something like a military issue Leica Leitz KE-7A. With a price tag of $45,300, it’s certainly aimed at a very special type of collector.

During what EOSHD describe as a “Red Bull sponsored surf shoot”, Levi appears to have posted a photograph of the crew to his Instagram feed, with a caption that mentions “the new unreleased Canon camera”.
In the words of Jay P Morgan, “If you can’t fix it with gaff tape, it probably does not deserve to be fixed”, and he’s right. Gaffer tape (or gaff tape, if you prefer) is one of the most useful and versatile things you can keep in your camera bag.
Probably the most common use for me is hanging flags from light stands or attaching snoots made from Cinefoil to flashes, but here’s at least 50 ways you can use your gaffer tape, courtesy of The Slanted Lens.
