Fujifilm has announced two new Macro Extension Tubes that add high magnification to Fujinon XF and XC lenses. The MCEX-11 and MCEX-16 rings retain all the function of the attached lens, while letting you get close to subjects and objects; the latter gives you even more close-up magnification. Available in mid-December, the adapters cost $ 100 each. Fujifilm also said that the X-T1 firmware (version 3.0), originally announced in September 2014, has a firm release date of December 18 ( click here to read more about the update). X-T1 users can download it then, which will add several enhancements to the camera.

This week we asked our Parenting Panel: What kind of camera do you bring to Disney theme parks? Do you use PhotoPass? advertisement Sheena also known as Mermaid, teaches first grade in Arizona where she lives with her husband and two children, Matthew (3) and Katie (2). She visits the Disneyland Resort as often as she can and has passed on her love of the parks to her little Mouseketeers. Sheena writes: When it comes to vacation photos, I love to take a lot and then pare them down later. There is something about looking back at them and reliving those fun times again and again. If there was a not so fun time, well that picture gets deleted! We have a lot of cameras and use most of them to some degree on all of our vacations. We have in our aresenal: Canon DSLR Rebel T3i: We got this when my second child was born in 2012. We like to say we have a lot more pictures of my oldest, but they are better quality with my youngest. My husband is the one that uses this the most on vacation. He wears a Canon backpack that holds it, and the three lenses, nicely. We also have the red Mickey parts strap that is sold in the photo stores at the Parks. The problem we have found is that strapwhile adorableis too short, so the camera lives in the backpack most of the time.
