Mosquito Bites Black Bear Cub
See the mosquito on this black bear cub's ear? The black bear is at the top of the food chain in Pennsylvania, but that does not mean they don't get bit. Getting bit is certainly going to be on the back of everyone's mind when photographing a bear cub this small as the highly protective mother is guaranteed to be nearby.
 
A mother bear nearby makes the zoom capabilities of the Canon EF 200-400 f/5.6 L IS Lens highly desirable. To capture this picture of a tiny cub required use of the built-in extender for 560mm of focal length (plus a small amount of cropping). To capture a full body portrait of the much larger mother (with or without cubs in the frame) required a wider focal length. Bears are very unpredictable and may not have tolerated (or stayed long enough for) a lens change. The 200-400 L lets me work fast, capturing the ideal framing potential from the situation.
 
This was a very productive bear session (and not the same as the recently shared bear picture was captured during). I'll try to share a few more shots from this encounter with you soon.

At an hour and forty minutes long, this isn't exactly "light viewing." However, this video may prove useful if playing in the background while you're completing other tasks. If you overhear a tip you're interested in, you can always focus your full attention on the video at that time. At least, that's how I usually enjoy these videos... [Sean]
 
From B&H's YouTube Channel:

Ubertronix Strike Finder Touch
From Ubertronix:
 
The Strike Finder TOUCH is our top of the line device in our camera trigger line-up. It has a programmable touch-screen interface that features 5 capabilities in one device. One of the most exciting features is the ability to trigger time lapse based on an external event such as lightning, motion and sound. When it detects high-speed flash events (such as lightning or fireworks), a tripped laser beam, movement, or sound, it sends a signal to the camera or flash at the precise moment to capture the photograph. The fully programmable touch-screen interface allows you to set multiple options (e.g. Sensitivity, Exposure, Timing, Delay (in milliseconds) and will detect motion up to 30 feet away! The motion and sound sensors can be extended by adding additional extension cables.
 

 
The Time Lapse is one of the hallmarks of the Strike Finder TOUCH, it contains all options you’d expect from an intervalometer but also boasts a unique feature that allows a photographer to start time lapse based on external events such as motion, a high-speed flash, sound, etc. Anytime one of these external events occurs, it will take multiple photos based on your setup taking a sequence of pictures from one to several thousand and also lets you adjust the frequency and exposure.
 
Adjustable Settings:

  • Time
  • Exposure
  • Number (number of pics to take)

Additionally, it has the ability to start time lapse when:

  • Motion is detected
  • Sound is detected
  • Lightning is detected
  • Laser beam is broken

When using the Lightning feature, it can capture lightning strikes day or night depending on how far the storm is. Since lightning strikes can last for several hundred milliseconds (ms) and contain dozens of strikes, the Strike Finder TOUCH has plenty of opportunity to catch the lightning bolt. The device is very fast, triggering the camera in less than 1ms!
 
Adjustable Settings:

  • Delay
  • Sensitivity
  • Number (number of pics to take)

The Laser Trigger was designed to capture anything that breaks the laser beam from water droplets to insects, to bigger things such as a sprinting runner. Once the laser has been tripped, the device instantly sends a signal to the camera telling it to release the shutter (external laser pointer required).
 
Adjustable Settings:

  • Delay
  • Sensitivity
  • Number (number of pics to take)

The Sound Trigger allows you to do high speed photography using sound. The sensor attachment plugs into the side of the Strike Finder TOUCH with an 12? cable. When it senses a loud sound, the device sends a signal to your camera to release the shutter.
 
Adjustable Settings:

  • Delay
  • Sensitivity
  • Number (number of pics to take)

The Motion Trigger uses a passive infrared sensor that is capable of detecting motion of any kind. Once detected, the device will trigger your camera once or multiple times depending on your setup. The sensor comes as an attachment that plugs into the side of the device with an 12? cable and can be extended with additional extension cables.
 
Adjustable Settings:

  • Interval (frequency(in seconds) to take pics while motion is present)
  • Number (number of pics to take)

Technical Specs:
 
Size 4" x 2 1/4" x 1"
 
Powered by 4 AAA batteries or optional power adapter Sound and motion sensors are external attachments that plug into the device, extension cables are available too.
 
B&H carries the new Strike Finder Touch.

From RODE:
 
RØDE Microphones has today announced the iXY with Lightning connector for iPhone 5, 5s and 5c -- the highly-anticipated update to RØDE’s stereo microphone for Apple iPhone devices, that allows high-quality recording at sample rates up to 24-bit/96kHz.
 
The original iXY was announced in early 2013 and was the world’s first microphone for iOS devices, able to record at such a high-quality resolution. This innovative approach saw the iXY awarded several product design awards, culminating with the prestigious International Red Dot Design Award, which recognizes products of the very highest quality by an expert panel of 37 judges from around the world.
 
Equipped with the same broadcast audio performance as the original 30-pin microphone, the iXY with Lightning connector features a matched pair of ½ inch condenser capsules arranged in a stacked X-Y configuration, with on-board high-fidelity analogue to digital conversion. This ensures accurate, immersive and true to life stereo recordings.
 
Interchangeable rubber mounting clamps are supplied to suit both iPhone 5/5s and 5c, which also provide shock mounting and help to minimise vibration transferring to the microphone capsules. A foam windshield for outdoor recording and protective storage pouch are also included. The RØDEGrip mount is optionally available for mounting the iXY and iPhone on a camera or microphone stand, and a “deadcat” windshield for high wind conditions will be available shortly.
 
“The original iXY was an industry leader in both design and function, so we’re thrilled to continue this success with the updated version for iPhone 5.” commented Damien Wilson, RØDE’s Global Sales and Marketing Director. “Being able to record at this quality with a device that sits in your pocket has been a game changer not only for audio professionals, but for enthusiasts alike. We saw this first-hand with so numerous entrants to our My RØDE Reel short film competition choosing to use the iXY for their amazing short films”.
 
Finally, RØDE’s field recording app for iOS devices, RØDE Rec also recently received an update to increase compatibility and stability on the iOS 7 platform. RØDE Rec and RØDE Rec LE are available now in the App store for iPhone and iPad.

Adobe Logo
From the Lightroom Journal:
 
What happens to Lightroom after my membership ends?
 
Since the launch of the Creative Cloud, Adobe has engaged in an ongoing dialog with the photographic community. We’ve tackled mobile workflows, provided ongoing enhancements and lastly, provided a membership plan tailor made for all levels of photographers. With the latest update to Lightroom 5.5 I believe we’ve also addressed a lingering concern in the community: What happens to my photographs after my membership ends?
 
With Lightroom 5.5, at the end of a membership, the desktop application will continue to launch and provide access to the photographs managed within Lightroom as well as the Slideshow, Web, Book or Print creations that we know many photographers painstakingly create. The Develop and Map modules have been disabled in order to signal the end of the membership and the need to renew in order to receive Adobe’s continuous innovation in those areas. Access to Lightroom mobile workflows will also cease to function. We hope this meets the expectations of our customers and we look forward to an ongoing dialog.
 
TDP Note: For what it's worth, I'm a big fan of Adobe's Photoshop Photography Program. In my opinion, a continuously updated Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 for only $9.99 per month is a great deal – and one I'll be more than happy to invest in for the foreseeable future. [Sean]
