When planning their next IMAX 3D film ‘A Beautiful Planet’ about the International Space Station, Director Toni Myers and Cinematographer James Neihouse soon realised they would have to make the move from film to digital. Since their last Space Station film together in 2002, the Space Shuttle had been withdrawn from service, removing the option to shift weighty film canisters in and out of orbit. CPN writer James Morris asked Neihouse how the 4K quality of Canon’s EOS C500 and EOS-1D C digital cinema cameras helped reveal space in all its three dimensional glory...
There is no question that this one is 5Ds R-ready. The 200 f/2.8 II is a great lens and you are probably not going to be surprised by the excellent results it delivers in front of the 5Ds R. Results with extenders are included as usual. The sharpness of this lens is especially impressive considering its price.
London, UK, 22 July 2016 – Canon Europe will be demonstrating its full range of professional imaging products at IBC 2016, the leading global tradeshow for the media and broadcast industry in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Having exhibited at IBC for more than three decades, Canon will display its latest industry-leading innovations – the range will include professional cameras, broadcast live streaming, reference displays and in excess of 100 lenses.
The Canon stand will provide visitors with the opportunity to get hands-on with Canon’s Full HD, 4K and HDR products, through a variety of end-to-end workflow scenarios – from shooting experiences, to review and editing processes, including innovative low-light and long distance live shooting demos.
Since its inception in 2011, Canon’s Cinema EOS range has been instrumental in transforming the professional video industry – with a range of innovations, including Dual Pixel CMOS AF for effective autofocus, leading sensor technology and advances in resolution. In April 2016, Canon saw the family of Cinema EOS products expand further with the launch of the versatile ME200S-SH, a compact professional multi-purpose video camera, and CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS, a compact cinema EOS lens with cine-servo style functionality. Both will be on display for touch and try, for the first time in Europe.
“The recently announced ITU HDR TV standard reaffirms the importance of both HDR and 4K for the future viewing experience, at Canon we continue to listen to our customers when developing the product range to ensure our innovations meet their needs,” said Kieran Magee, Director Professional Imaging, Canon Europe. “We understand that content providers and creators demand quality products that will deliver the creative vision in HDR and 4K. At IBC 2016, we’ll display our largest range of 4K HDR products to-date.”
At the show, broadcast and cinematography professionals will be able to get hands-on with Canon’s full range of 4K, Full HD and HDR products including the prestigious Cinema EOS Range, stunning reference display units and broadcast solutions. Visitors can experience the full power of the company’s optics portfolio, with Canon’s extensive range of lenses, from broadcast to cinema and EF lenses.
Canon’s IBC stand can be found at Hall 12, stand D60.
Scott Kelby shares a really slick little tricky for aligning two piece of anything and have it be right-on-the-money pixel perfect using (wait for it...) a little used Blend Mode. It's cooler than it sounds.
The Canon TC-80N3 has been a valuable part of my kit for quite some time. I use it for time lapses and long exposures (like the one below). Considering that the Vello ShutterBoss II Remote Switch offers similar functionality at [currently] roughly 1/3 the cost of the Canon, it makes a strong case for adding to one's kit. [Sean]

July 20, 2016, Commack, New York - Tamron USA announces its fifth "My Travel Exhibit" photo contest, offered exclusively to Tamron USA lens users. Entrants will create a 3D virtual exhibit showcasing 8-14 of their best images in a travel theme on Tamron's unique photo-sharing exhibit site, myphotoexhibits.com. Tamron judges will select the winning exhibit based on overall image quality and originality of the collection. The winning exhibit will be featured on the Tamron USA website and in the Tamron eNewsletter. The winner will also receive his/her choice of any Tamron lens.
Unlike traditional static online galleries, Tamron's SoHo-styled MyPhotoExhibits (MPE) interface, available at myphotoexhibits.com, allows users to create customizable gallery exhibits with a vibrant interactive experience. Photographers simply set up a user avatar and bio, upload their favorite high-resolution images, and create their personalized online exhibit space. After organizing the exhibit and captioning the photographs, users can put finishing design touches on their exhibit. By choosing wall and floor textures and colors, frames, furniture, and lighting, photographers are invited to extend their creativity and show their work in complimentary settings. It's easy to go back into the MPE interface at any time to add more photos, tweak presentation specs, or create an unlimited number of new exhibits that feature travel pictorials, special events, projects, and more.
Spreading the word about these custom exhibits is another way in which MyPhotoExhibits stands out from other online galleries. Once an exhibit is ready to "open," it's easy to share it with friends. Users simply send invitations from the website or the iPhone and iPad app to Facebook or other social media platforms or by email. Visitors can sign the photographer's guestbook, choose favorite exhibits, and follow exhibiting photographers.
Companion App for On-the-Go Viewing and Sharing
An app for iPhone and iPad for photography enthusiasts on the go will further enhance MyPhotoExhibits' convenience and user-friendliness. The free app-available in the iTunes App Store, which can also be accessed from tamron-usa.com/lenses/apps_mpe.php, offer easy mobile access to MyPhotoExhibits. Through their iPhone or iPad, users can browse through all available MPE exhibits, view their own exhibits, check out other photographers, and share exhibits by sending out invites to friends.
