It finally has a non-destructive workflow for layers, focus stacking, and sees some digital asset management updates.
Sony has become rather popular for its video features over the last few years. But with the latest round of mirrorless cameras from Fuji, Nikon and Canon, we’re starting to see them lag a little behind. The new cameras from all three of those brands shoot 10Bit video (through HDMI, even if not all internally), while the Sony still only puts out 8Bit.
Can Sony still keep up? Well, yes, kind of. It’s not quite the same as shooting actual video, but the burst modes, according to Josh Yeo are so quick that it might as well be video. He uses the burst mode to create full raw file image sequences to use in his videos.
RED’s entry into the world of smartphones was supposed to be exciting. As one of the leaders in cinema cameras, everybody expected the RED Hydrogen One to be a magical video powerhouse of a phone. Now that they’ve started shipping, though, some customers aren’t quite so impressed with what they’ve received for their money.
Well, this is interesting, if it turns out to be true. Canon Rumors says they’ve received a report that an upcoming Canon APS-C interchangeable lens camera is going to contain a Sony sensor. Specifically the Sony IMX571, a 26MP APS sized sensor destined for DSLRs – although it could go in a mirrorless, too.
There are a lot of Lightroom tips & tricks videos out there, but they all seem to gloss over the same handful of things. A lot of the really useful stuff is missed because they’re so used to the software that they go on autopilot and do things without even thinking. So, when asked, they don’t recall.
In this video, though, from photographer Mark Denney, we hear seven tricks that he uses on a daily basis as part of his image editing workflow.
The historic West Bottoms district of Kansas City is fighting back against photographers. They’ve been battling what seems to only be describable as a “swam” of photographers taking over the area for photo shoots. It’s a beautiful place, photographically speaking, so the draw for photographers is obvious. But these local business owners have had enough.
They’ve had photographers coming up to use their buildings as photographic backdrops to the point of not only hindering the operation of their business but also blocking entire streets. The business owners have even gotten to the point of putting up “No Trespassing” signs with the words “No Photography” written on them.
With a history dating back to 1851 and over 125 Pulitzer Prizes under its belt, the New York Times has amassed a mountain of photos. Between five and seven million of them. They’re all stored in the “morgue” under their Times Square office. Packed into countless drawers and cupboards, they’re now working with Google to digitise the entire collection.
According to the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), there’s a minor geomagnetic storm going on today and tomorrow (9th and 10th) that will cause the Aurora Borealis to appear over the USA’s northern states including Montana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, north Dakota and the northern tip of Maine as well as Canada and Alaska.
Interesting Engineering reports that it’s expected to start pretty soon, too. They’re scheduled to appear on Friday the 9th from 4-7pm EST and then again from 10pm until 1am tomorrow morning.
The popular Rylo 360 camera gets an upgrade! While a rather impressive camera already with extremely impressive software, the Rylo 360 camera had one slightly flaw for many users. It only shot 4K resolution. Plenty enough resolution for a flat camera, but not for converting 360° footage to a flat view.
Well, in response to that Rylo has now released a new firmware update for the camera. Yes, that’s right, you just download, install and boom, you’ve got 5.8K resolution. No hassle, no gimmicks, no new camera to spend money on, just upgrade the one you already have.
Although the Canon EOS R has received some criticism since its initial announcement, especially from the “Pro” users, Japan’s not listening. They’re going to buy it anyway. And they’re going go buy it to the tune of 22% full-frame mirrorless market share in only a month.
This instant boom in sales, combined with the Nikon Z7 release has seen Sony’s market share drop from 99.5% in July down to 67% as of October. BCN Retail has released their latest full-frame mirrorless sales report, including a breakdown of full-frame mirrorless sales between April and October 2018.
