Last Year, we posted about a Sam's Club "Pelican" style hard case that's enough to hold a DSLR body and a few lenses. This year, it seems that Sam's Club has seen how popular these types of cases are, and are now offering a 24" Rolling "Pelican" hard case, that looks to be the equivalent of the popular carry-on sized Pelican 1510.
Now that the 6D Mark II is out, we're beginning to see a lot of steep discounts on the older model. Coupled with the holiday shopping season, prices are dipping into entry-level territory.

I recently took a trip to New York, and brought WAY too much camera gear with me (SPOILERS: It was totally worth it). I brought along the X100F as well, as I liked the idea of having a small, pocketable camera to use for everything, and also because I always have the X100F on me.
In a new series I'm starting on modifiers, I cover what's fast become one of our favorite modifiers — the Broncolor Para 133. The Broncolor Paras are considered a "holy grail" modifier, usually because of the exorbitant price. But what do you get for the money?
