Canon Rebates for October

Not only has Canon dropped the price on the 5D Mark II substantially, but they have also implemented some aggressive instant rebates for the month of October. Many of these rebates are simply a continuation of ones they implemented on September 21st. Note that they are "instant" so you don't have to mail anything in! See the details below...

NEW: Sennheiser Mics and audio accessories at Beau!

Beau Photo has finally received their first shipment of Sennheiser products, mainly the really small, lightweight and high quality MKE-400 hotshoe mounted shotgun microphone. This mic is perfect for use with your video DSLR. We also brought in some accessory kits, consisting of a furry windscreen and XLR adapters. rentals already has an MKE-400 and plans on putting a wireless lav-mic kit into rentals too, once that shipment arrives. We also brought in some wired lav-mics too, if you want to use them with a small recorder and not bother with a more expensive wireless solution.

While we are not stocking all that many SKUs, we can special-order in anything you might want from Sennheiser.

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2.0 Lens

We now have this wonderful little wide-angle lens in stock. Not only does it fit the Olympus PEN series of Micro-4/3 cameras, but all the Panasonic Lumix Micro-4/3 cameras as well of course.

It has superb anti-reflection coatings and is one of the best wide angle lenses I have seen for flare resistance. It is also very sharp, even corner to corner when stopped down to at least f/4, and boasts the first manual focus scale with depth of field markings of any Micro-4/3 lens that I am aware of. Sadly, it does not include a lens hood, but it is so well behaved when sunlight is hitting the front element, that only in certain situations will you ever really feel the need for a hood.
