Free cases from ThinkTank with backback purchase in Feb.

Great news from our partners at Think Tank Photo. For the month of February, whenever you order one of their rugged, multifunction, and secure backpacks* they will give you for free your choice of one of their popular AppHouse 8 or AppHouse 10 tablet cases. Their backpacks range from the field-oriented StreetWalker backpacks to their transportation-oriented Airport backpacks, as well as their expandable Shape Shifter and their “long glass” backpacks. The AppHouse shoulder/belt-mounted tablet bags are a great way to carry a digital portfolio or presentation, transmit images, or access your music, games, apps and more.  And don’t forget, as a friend, whenever you order $50 or more of any Think Tank gear using my special link you can add yet one more free item to your order, as well as free shipping!  To receive your free AppHouse follow the rebate download instructions on the backpacks’ product pages.  [*Note: this special offer does not apply to Perception backpacks.]

Awesome $100 savings on Sony mirrorless right now!

A few days ago I shared some travel tips & gear reviews, including my favorite little travel camera, the Sony NEX-6, recently updated to the a6000. It just went on sale at B&H for $100 off! Check out all the deals here. This is a great backup camera or when you really want to travel light. Here's a sample image from a recent trip to Machu Picchu, taken with the 50mm f1.8 lens. I made a big print for the wall at my office and the detail and image quality is amazing.
