RRS: Really Right Stuff Broken Trim Cap Replacement – BH-55
Just a quick couple photos on how to replace the cap on your RRS ball head if it happens to show up with the cap broken. No idea how but RRS support was very good like usual and sent a replacement. It simply pops out and the new one can go in its place

Black Rapid Strap Upgrade?
I guess this has been going on for some time but for those that do not know and have an older Black Rapid Strap you can upgrade your existing strap (well turn it in for a discount on the latest version) http://www.blackrapid.com/tradein-program I assume this is due to issues they had with the old style latches backing off. That is all the issues I can find with what is considered a great strap overall. I will be reviewing the new one vs. two other straps I have based on my eternal search for the perfect camera strap setup.

Trey’s Photomatix Preset Pack 2
  As a user of the first set – I just picked up the second set today to check out the latest creative items for Photomatix. Yes we could all spend weeks and months creating these ourselves, but honestly, they are worth the 14 bucks Trey is charging to save me 2 years of creative time I sadly rarely have anymore. 🙁 Check them out at this link   TREY’S PHOTOMATIX PRESETS – VOLUME 2 If you buy Volume 2 which contains 27 brand new presets, whatever you do, don’t click on the preset called “You’ll Regret Clicking This.” You will. Oh, and there’s another preset called “Facebook Drama” that will make you roll your eyes just like you do when some distant relative posts something insanely stupid. And if it’s the middle of the day, why not try out “Underoos Moist” or if your partner leaves to run an errand, dip into “The Pr0nstash.” You really can’t go wrong with these presets. Scout’s honor!
