If you’ve ever thought about giving Corel’s AfterShot Pro a try, it is currently on sale for $8.99 for the download version (for PC or Mac).

AfterShot Pro was updated this past summer with 37 new cameras supported for RAW file processing. Check it out here on Amazon.
B&H has the Vanguard Alta Pro 263AB 100 tripod and SBH-100 ball head combo for $149.99 (reg. $209.99) through Dec. 31. The SBH-100 is an excellent, heavy-duty ball head and Vanguard’s Alta Pro tripods are highly regarded. This is a hard kit to beat for this price. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
