Following a two-month free public beta, Adobe today released the shipping version of Photoshop Lightroom 4, the company’s pro and enthusiast-oriented all-in-one photo management, RAW conversion, image editing, and image output application.
Headline features for the new version of Lightroom include simplified and improved image processing controls, new highlight and shadow recovery technology, additional local editing controls, enhanced support for video files, location-based image management features, and integrated photo book creation. 
And in perhaps the biggest practical change in the new version, Adobe has reduced Lightroom’s price by half. A standard license costs US$149 in the U.S., and both an upgrade license for previous Lightroom users and the student/teacher version cost US$79 in the U.S. Lightroom 4 is available now.

The new Speedlite 600EX-RT wireless flash from Canon.

Published on 02/03/12 in the section of Presentations

By viewAt.org Team

Canon has announced the Speedlite 600EX-RT flash, its first to include wireless radio control, alongside a selection of EOS accessories. A radio frequency transmitter, the Speedlite ST-E3-RT, has also been released and can trigger up to 15 Speedlites at up to 30 meters. Meanwhile, the GP-E2 GPS unit allows for automatic geotagging of images from the latest Canon DSLRs and the WFT-E7 wireless file transmitter can use either a Wi-Fi or Gigabit Ethernet connection to move files from camera to computer or to control the camera. There's also the BG-E11 dual-slot battery grip for the EOS 5D Mark III.

The radio connectivity is a first for Canon and comes in addition to the infrared triggering found in previous models. Major drawbacks to infrared remote flash control are that it requires a direct line of sight and has a relatively limited transmission range, particularly outdoors. By including built-in radio control, Canon now offers a system that gives its users an alternative to the popular PocketWizard radio transmitters and receivers. The Speedlite ST-E3-RT can trigger up to 15 Speedlites over distances as far as 30m.

The GP-E2 GPS receiver weighs in at under 3oz and offers automatic geo-tagging (via EXIF metadata) of images shot with the EOS-1Dx, 7D (with a firmware update) and the co-announced 5D Mark III. With older EOS cameras the GPS receiver can generate tracklog files at specified time intervals - even with the unit detached from the camera - which users can then manually import into compatible mapping software.

Continuing with the theme of wireless communication, Canon has announced the WFT-E7 wireless file transmitter which can transfer files from the EOS 5D Mark III over a Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n) or Gigabit Ethernet connection. For remote camera setups, the transmitter has a server function that allows for camera control via a web-enabled mobile device. Rounding out support for the EOS 5D Mark III is the BG-E11 battery grip which adds dual battery slots and additional external controls for shooting in portrait orientation.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III Hands-on Preview


Preview based on a pre-production Canon EOS 5D Mark III

On March 2nd 1987, Canon unveiled to the world the EOS 620, its first ever 35mm autofocus SLR and the start of a brand new camera system. With its fully-electronic lens mount, in-lens aperture and focus motors, and reliance on electronic button and dial operation, the EOS system established a blueprint that all successive camera systems have followed. Now, 25 years later to the day, the company has launched the latest model in the line: the EOS 5D Mark III.

Up until now, the 5D series has been a dynasty of slightly unlikely revolutionaries. The original EOS 5D of 2005 was the first 'affordable' full frame SLR, and the camera that cemented the 24x36mm sensor as the format of choice for many professional applications at a time when many were questioning its continued relevance. The 5D Mark II was the first SLR capable of recording full HD video, a feature that revolutionized the market in a fashion that no one could possibly have envisaged at the time - least of all Canon. On the face of it, though, the 5D Mark III offers little that looks likely to make the same impact.

As the inevitable internet leaks have suggested, the 5D Mark III has a 22MP full frame sensor in a body based on the EOS 7D design, and with a 61-point AF system borrowed from the flagship EOS-1D X. From the glass-half-empty point of view, this could be seen as an unambitious update that trails disappointingly behindNikon's 36MP D800 before either camera has even hit the shops. But for those whose glasses tend more towards the half-full, it might turn out to be the camera that 5D Mark II owners always really wanted.

Indeed the 5D name itself is almost misleading - compared to its predecessor the Mark III is essentially a completely new model, with every major system upgraded and updated. In a way it's better seen as a full-frame 7D, with that camera's control layout, extensive customizability and 63-zone metering sensor. But it also gains a raft of additional tweaks and improvements in response to customer feedback; these range from dual slots for CF and SD cards, though a locking exposure mode dial, to a large depth of field preview button that's repositioned for right-handed operation, and can be reprogrammed to access a number of other functions.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III key specifications

  • 22MP full frame CMOS sensor
  • ISO 100-25600 standard, 50-102,800 expanded
  • 6 fps continuous shooting
  • Shutter rated to 150,000 frames

SeaView: Google Street View for the Sea

 SeaView: Google Street View for the Sea

New service called the Catlin SeaView Survey is planning to do for the ocean what Google Street View has done for land. Using a special camera, the joint venture between the University of Queensland, Google, and insurance firm Catlin Group will use a specially designed underwater camera to capture interactive 360-degree panoramic photographs. The purpose will be to carry out one of the most intensive studies of reefs ever, starting with Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. It’ll go into full swing starting in September, but some sample imagery is already viewable over at the SeaView website.
