Vello Ringbox
B&H has the Vello Ringbox available for $59.95 with free expedited shipping. Regularly $89.95.
 
The Vello Ringbox seems to be a clone of the Roundflash Ringflash Adapter which retails for $113.00. I purchased the RoundFlash around Christmas of last year and have enjoyed playing around with it. It makes an especially useful tool for macro subjects.
 
I captured this image of a Rosemary bush using the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, 580EX Speedlite and the RoundFlash Ringflash Adapter.
 
RoundFlash Rosemary Macro Shot
 
EXIF: f/7.1, 1/100 sec, ISO 100 (exposure reduced by 1/2 stop in DPP)
 
The exposure settings meant that the shaded fence behind the plant fell into darkness making this outdoor shot look like it was captured in a studio. The soft, even light of the RoundFlash allowed for every detail in the subject to be visible. [Sean]

The-Digital-Picture.com Discussion

I've never been a big fan of New Year's resolutions. However, I've always been a fan of setting goals. That may seem a bit ironic and it may just be semantics, but I always felt like an un-met goals was still obtainable – while an unfulfilled resolution felt more like a failure.
 
As such, my goals for 2015 are as follows:
 
Shoot more creatively; get out of my own comfort zone
I tend to get stuck in my own comfort zone, photographically speaking. Some of the biggest rewards in life also come with the biggest risks. I've rarely regretted doing something, because even in failure, I've learned valuable lessons. But I've often regretted not going out on a limb.
 
Sell off unused gear
I've generally done a good job in investing in the gear that's well suited for my needs. However, there are a few items lying around my house that have become irrelevant due to upgrades or changes in my shooting preferences. By selling off this gear, I can not only free up space in my home, but I can also reallocate those funds to purchase gear I will likely use much more often.
 
Be diligent about backups
A hard drive failure in 2014 meant that I lost a lot of images that I didn't have backups for. This year, I'm going to be more rigorous about my backup procedures to ensure that when the inevitable happens, it doesn't leave me empty handed.
 
So what are your photography goals for 2015? Let us know in the comments!

SanDisk Ultra 64GB Class 10 SDXC Memory Card Up To 40MB/s
Amazon is featuring select SanDisk SDHC/SDXC/microSD memory cards and Cruzer flash drives as its Gold Box Deal of the Day.
 
With the burst rate of cameras like the EOS 7D Mark II, even moderately sized memory cards tend to fill up rather quickly. Be sure to have extra memory cards on hand (or purchase high-capacity ones) so you never miss the action.

Nikon D750 DSLR Camera Kit
From Nikon:
 
Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.
 
We have received indications from some users that when photographing scenes in which an extremely bright light source, such as the sun or high-intensity lighting, is at a certain position along the top border of the frame, flare with an unnatural shape caused by the reflection of the light may sometimes occur in images captured with the D750 digital SLR camera.
 
As we at Nikon are constantly striving to ensure the satisfaction of our customers, we have released this announcement to inform users that we are already working on measures to address this issue and will, of course, keep you advised of these as they occur.
 
Please direct inquiries regarding this matter, contact Nikon Customer Relations by phone at 1-800-Nikon US (1-800-645-6687), 9AM–8PM EST, Monday to Friday (closed certain holidays) or online here.
 
Once again, thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.
