DSLR Gear Deal Roundup

There are a ton of deals going on at B&H for a very short time. Thought I would list them for you guys here. The Canon rebates end in 2 days and I am being told the 60D, T3i, and 7D deals won’t be around long.

Canon T4i and 40mm Lens Available for Pre-Order

Canon has release yet another HDSLR. The Canon T4i hasn’t added too much to what Canon currently offers. Autofocus during filming, angled touch screen lcd, and improved low-light sensitivity are some of the new features we’re seeing on this camera.

Canon also has announced a new 40mm Pancake lens. This lens is one of the new video optimized lenses from Canon. So you will find it to be much more quiet compared to other lenses. I am interested to see where Canon takes this idea going forward.

Nikkor Lenses: Nikon to Canon Adapter for DSLR Video

There is a wonderful world of manual lenses out there. This guide is dedicated to using Nikkor lenses on Canon, and other camera mounts. Using a Nikon to Canon adapter you can bring these incredible lenses back to life.

UPDATE: Disregard the use of paper to tighten the lens adapter to the lens. There are actually small slits on each of the 3 lips that you can widen to tighten the lens adapter. Better yet, check out the Redrock Micro Nikon to EOS adapter which uses 3 screws to adjust play.
