During the holiday season, I’m sure all of us want to get some festive family shots with our loved ones. But how to make the best out of them? In this video from B&H, photographer David Flores shares some quick tips to take your holiday family photos to a new level.
Although DJI might be pushing the new Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom drones, the original DJI Mavic Pro is still a very competent drone, and still very popular. Many have stuck with the Mavic Pro despite the newer releases, and many are still looking to buy one, hoping to catch those deals.
Well, here’s a deal for you. B&H has the DJI Mavic Pro Fly More Combo on sale today for only $869. That’s $430 off the regular $1,299 price.
As a result of South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., photo & video retail giant B&H is now collecting sales tax in 22 states across America. Until this year, B&H only collected sales tax in New York and New Jersey, the only two states where B&H had a physical presence.
If you live in Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, Washington (state) or Wisconsin, your prices are going up if you order from B&H.
The Sony A7II & 28-70mm kit is currently on massive discount at B&H. They’ve dropped the price from the A7II kit’s regular $1,598 down to a mere $998. That’s almost a 40% discount. But it’s not just the camer and lens. The kit also comes with a 32GB 90MB/sec SanDisk Extreme memory card, a spare battery and an external charger.
The LitraTorch from LITRA has impressed us somewhat here at DIYP. For such a small light, it’s extremely durable and packs quite a punch when it comes to light output. We did a comparison of the LitraTorch against the Lume Cube not too long ago, which you can see down below.
The LitraTorch is pretty inexpensive as it is already, typically retailing for around $75. Today, though, B&H has the LitraTorch on sale for a mere $49.95.
If you remember the beginnings of digital photography, then you probably remember that it was all about the megapixel count. Today, the market still offers us cameras with 10 MP, but there are those with 50 – 100MP, too. And how much does it really matter? In this video from B&H, David Flores discusses how important the megapixel count really is, and why there can be some advantages even to lower-resolution cameras.
There’s no two ways around it, Pelican cases are expensive. But, there’s a reason for their cost. They have the reputation of being the toughest cases out there. Many users trust them to hold thousands of dollars worth of equipment. But just how tough are they, really?
That’s what the folks at B&H wanted to find out. So, in this video, they put one the new Pelican Air Cases through its paces. They threw it off a roof, banged it against a tree, and even set fire to it. It took a hammer to even make a crack in the thing. But, even after that, it still managed to take a lot more abuse.
Anybody who’s ever ordered anything substantial from B&H will likely, at some point, receive a printed catalogue. This is essentially an inch thick (or bigger) 300+ page book featuring every product in B&H’s inventory. I’ve received them myself in the past. It started after ordering my first “Pro” lens. I didn’t ask for them, and after receiving the second I wanted no more.
Having to throw them out is a terrible waste, and not throwing them out when a new one arrives is simply taking up space on the shelf that could be otherwise better used. There is an easy way to stop the printed catalogues from showing up regularly on your doorstep, though. All you need do is simply fill in this form on the B&H website.
Setting up a green screen to record footage of a subject that will be cut out and composited into another background has become commonplace these days. What is ultimately a pretty straightforward process, however, can be a difficult one to learn.
This video presented by Doug Guerra from B&H shows us some tips and techniques to help eliminate a lot of the common issues faced, such as colour spill, key fringing around our subject, and only partially removed backgrounds.
Photography has all sorts of ‘rules’ that we’re told to adhere to: thirds, inverse square, golden mean and so on.
While these rules certainly help build the foundation of any great photographer, it’s important to remember to break the rules and step out of the mould every once in a while to learn and gain new insights.
