It was three years ago, in 2015 when Canon released the EOS C300 Mark II. It came with some pretty significant advantages over the original EOS C300 cinema camera. But it’s time to start thinking about another refresh. And that’s exactly what Canon Rumors says is happening in 2019. But that C300 Mark III refresh may include the option of an 8K sensor.
A freelance videographer by the name of Dave Cooper is suing Adobe for the deletion of around 100,000 digital video clips totalling around 500 hours. After upgrading to Premiere Pro 2017 v11.1.0 in April of last year, he claims that a bug caused the deletion of video clips that cost him around $250,000 to create.
He says that the bug exists in the “clean cache” feature which deletes temporary files and backups created during the editing process. And Adobe has actually acknowledged this bug, but I can’t help but feel there’s quite a bit of user error here.
ON1 Software has today announced ON1 Photo RAW 2019 with an “all-new photo editing experience”. They say it features a new streamlined more elegant workflow with new features and software tech.

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.
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.
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.
We have seen people destroying works of art, nature, and their own lives while taking selfies. A few days ago, a visitor of an exhibition in Russia managed to ruin two works of iconic artists: Salvador Dalí and Francisco Goya. While the Goya painting only had the glass and the frame damaged, in Dalí’s case, the painting itself suffered the damage as well.
