JEFF CABLE'S SPONSOR DEALS

I am sponsored by the following companies, and I recommend them because I truly believe that they are the best in the industry. Having the best equipment does not guarantee to make me a good photographer, but the right choice in gear sure makes it easier for me to be that much better. Not only do I get the benefit of partnering with these great companies, but it allows you to get some deals from them as well. I have reached out to each sponsor and asked for deals for my followers. You will fond all of those here. I hope you find great benefit with these deals.

I spent the first 8 years of my photography career searching for the perfect ball head for my Gitzo tripods. After an exhaustive search, I came across the Acratech ball heads and have made these my standard ever since. The precision build and the accuracy of the Acratech products is second to none.

Most of my hard drives are mounted inside of Drobo 5D or Drobo 810N boxes. These RAID systems are amazingly fast and offer me the piece of mind, knowing that my data is backed, and even if a drive did fail (which has never happened) that my data would still be safe.

I know this might sound crazy, but before leaving to photograph my first Olympics, my biggest challenge was not the camera and lenses, it was the best way to transport all my gear. I found that the highest quality bags are made by Think Tank. Their quality is excellent and customer service is unmatched. Click on this special link and order $50 or more of Think Tank gear and you will receive a free gift and free shipping with your purchase.
Although Photo Mechanic is not as well known as other applications, it is as important, if not more than Photoshop to me. I use Photo Mechanic to cull through all my photos to determine which images are removed and which ones are saved and retouched. This program is one of the biggest time savers for me and helps me make my crazy fast deadlines at the Olympics. If you want to try it out, they offer a 30-day trial here. You can also get 15% off by using the code “JEFFCABLE” at checkout.
Zenfolio logoZenfolio logo In 2013 I was in search of a new platform for my web site. My old system could no longer keep up with the times and I wanted something flexible and yet easy to use. I asked my Facebook fans what they were using, and many commented that they were using Zenfolio. I did my research, signed on to Zenfolio, and within days had the basics for the site you see today. Incredibly easy to use and customer support always there when I need them! If you want to use Zenfolio and want to save 20% off their normal pricing, click here to get the savings.
It might be just a camera strap, but this is a really important piece of camera gear for any photographer. Walking around with heavy cameras for 10 hours a day can be really uncomfortable. Blackrapid makes camera straps that are the most comfortable in the industry. This is the reason that neck and my back love their products. You can order products from Blackrapid and use the discount code "BRJeffCable" to get 10% off their straps and accessories.
People use filters on their lenses for various reasons, either to protect their lens from scratches or wear or for special effects. Either way, it is imperative to use a filter that does not degrade the overall quality of your lens. For this reason I use Tiffen filters, and have for more than 10 years. My favorite filters are UV filters for protection, Circular Polarizers for shooting deep blue skies and to cut glare, and Variable ND filters to darken the scene for long exposures. For my filters, Tiffen is clearly the best. Deal code coming soon.
