There are more than a few online courses that you can take for free right now, and DxO is joining the party.

While many companies have closed their doors during the coronavirus pandemic, Ilford has decided to keep providing you with film. In a recent statement, the company has announced that its factory is staying operational. But there’s more: it seems that they couldn’t resist mocking panic-buyers of toilet paper. Among other things, the statement encourages you to stockpile rolls, but “those that go into a camera.”
The Loupedeck CT is Loupedeck’s most recent control deck, launched in October last year. It features native support for much of the Adobe CC suite of applications, along with Final Cut Pro X, Ableton Live and as of today, Streamlabs. Also new today, Loupedeck has announced a major new feature for the Loupedeck CT – the Loupedeck Profile Creator.
The Loupedeck Profile Creator allows Loupedeck CT users to create their own custom profiles for any application they like, even if it doesn’t have native integration. It’s being launched with example profiles for applications including DaVinci Resolve, Avid Pro Tools, Cubase, and even non-creative tools like Microsoft Excel.
DJI’s Mavic Mini made big news when it was announced in October, especially given that it was something so small. But being small and lightweight is exactly the point of the Mavic mini, weighing in at a mere 249g – 1g below the minimum limit required by many of the world’s governments before the operator requires licensing and regulation.
It looks like the DJI Mavic Mini might have something of a design flaw, though. Under certain conditions, particularly during Sport mode, the propeller blades seem to be able to hit the body of the drone. User djiuser_JXraXHrZCs7w posted images to the DJI community website along with a written note about the problem.
Techradar recently had a chat with Canon Product Marketing Specialist, David Parry about the new upcoming Canon EOS R5. While there haven’t been any new specs or details released about the camera, he did confirm that while the EOS R5 isn’t a 5D Mark IV replacement, it does target the same market and customers who might have otherwise bought a 5D series DSLR.
It’s an interesting interview, as is often the case with David, which covers a number of topics about the new EOS R5 camera. As usual, while David is happy to expand on the topics he is allowed to talk about, he remained tight-lipped when it came to letting out any new information on the capabilities of the camera itself.
Pentax has today officially announced the development of the new HD PENTAX-D FA★85mm F1.4 ED SDM AW K mount lens for Pentax.

Tamron hasn’t announced its upcoming 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens yet, however product photographs of the new lens have leaked online.

There are no official specs yet, other than the obvious ones – the focal length range and maximum aperture, but here’s what the new lens looks like.
