From the Canon Professional Network:
"Fireworks are one of the most inspiring and photogenic, yet challenging subjects, to capture. And unfortunately, this is one of those shooting situations where fully automatic exposure and focusing may not help. However, with these tricks up your sleeve, a few accessories and a willingness to experiment, you'll capture amazing fireworks photos this Fourth of July!"
Check out the full CPN Article for all the helpful tips.
 
Note: I'll add one more tip to the list – Combine multiple exposures in post-processing using the "Lighten" blending mode.

"Travel photographer and Canon Explorer Lucie Debelkova was one of the first to shoot with the high-resolution EOS 5DS R and, as she explains to CPN, she found 50.6 Megapixels brought her much closer to the magic of the north...
 
Regular visitors to CPN will be familiar with Lucie’s intoxicating mix of majestic vistas, full of stunning colour and detail. Her precision with her camera and a love for wide-angle lenses has won her acclaim around the world. So it was entirely appropriate that she had chance to sample a new world of high-resolution imaging with a pre-production EOS 5DS R. So how did it all go?
 
'Well, I went to shoot the Northern Lights and an ice hotel in Sweden, about 250km north of the Arctic Circle,' she reveals, 'And I put myself at the mercy of the weather and conditions...'"
The images in the article's showcase gallery are quite stunning and definitely worth a look. [Sean]

From the Canon Professional Network:
“I didn’t know I needed it, until I saw the quality...”
 
Fashion photographer and Canon Explorer Quentin Caffier is on fashion photography’s fast track. One of Europe’s new breed of busy modern professionals, his recent shoot with a pre-production EOS 5DS has convinced him that – to stay ahead of the curve – he needs every one of those 50.6 Megapixels. CPN caught up with him recently to find out why...
 
“I am always looking for quality in my pictures,” he states. “But in my work I have to shoot fast. From my previous experience with high megapixel medium-format cameras, the bigger the megapixels meant the slower the camera. And for me, when I use a camera like that, the risk I face when working with models spinning around in dresses, for example, was always that I might lose the shot. That’s why I always preferred to use my EOS-1D X DSLR because I knew it would never let me down. Its reactions were always so much faster.”
 
But the advantage of speed always came at the expense of ultimate image quality. In Quentin’s business, detail is king and when the EOS 5DS arrived he was keener than most to see how it performed.
 
“I only had the opportunity to use it twice, because there was only one body to share amongst all the other Canon Explorers,” Quentin explains, “But it was enough. I shot JPEG because the RAW software was still being developed at the time, but I can tell you that I was impressed.”

From the Canon Professional Network:
"Canon Explorer Fernando Guerra originally qualified as an architect, but went on to combine this training with his love of photography, to become one of the world’s foremost architectural photographers. The new EOS 5DS DSLR – with its extraordinary 50.6 Megapixel sensor – is the perfect tool for people in Fernando’s line of work, as well as for landscape and studio photographers. So when Canon invited him to put a pre-production model of the camera through its paces, he was only too happy to accept. Once his test run was over, CPN caught up with Fernando to get his first impressions..."

From Canon Professional Network:
 
Canon Europe has revealed the latest members of its Ambassadors Program with the addition of six new ‘Explorers’ – highly talented photographers and filmmakers from across Europe who share a passion for photography and film with a love of shooting with Canon equipment.
 
The new Explorers joining the Ambassadors Programme have been specially selected by Canon representatives from across Europe and they come from a wide range of genres including wildlife, photojournalism, architecture, adventure and filmmaking.
 
The six new Explorers to become part of the Canon Ambassadors Program are:
 
The six latest Explorers joining the Ambassadors Program mean the Explorers tier has now swelled to 53 top imaging talents from right across Europe, Africa and the Middle East, each of whom being superb exponents of their art. They join the 11 Canon Ambassadors – world-class photographers from a wide range of photographic disciplines and from all corners of the world and the four Masters – world-renowned industry influencers and spokespeople.
 
Canon Europe’s Ambassadors Program was launched in June 2008 and over the past seven years the Canon Ambassadors, Explorers and Masters have lent their expertise to workshops, seminars and major photography shows around the world, as well as providing expert feedback to help in the development of future Canon imaging products.
 
Kieran Magee, Professional Imaging Marketing Director, Canon Europe, explained: “We very much value the relationship we have with our Masters, Ambassadors and Explorers, and the addition of six new Explorers means we can continue to connect with Canon photographers who are actively using our products to further their creative vision.”

From the George Lepp for the Canon Professional Network:
"We’ve had the ability to capture time-lapse images with Canon EOS cameras for some time. What was needed was an interval timer to attach to the camera to fire it at a regulated interval. This interval could be as short as 1 second to as long as days. To do this, you needed to purchase an interval timer (intervolameter) and carry it with you. Canon’s answer for advanced DSLRs is the TC-80N3 Timer/Remote Controller. It has several functions beyond being an interval timer and is usually found in my camera bag. But there have been numerous times that I’ve been out photographing and didn’t have all my tools with me, including the TC-80N3, and I was out of luck when it came to time-lapses.
 
The new Canon EOS 7D Mark II has the interval timer built into the camera. Access the 4th Red Menu on the camera’s LCD and follow the procedure below. You will have the option of setting the number of captures from 1 to 99 or set to “Unlimited.” The time between each exposure can be set from 1 second to 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds."

CPN's Inside Canon EOS Utility 3 Software Banner
From the Canon Professional Network:
"The release of Canon’s Digital Photo Professional (DPP) 4 software in mid-2014 was accompanied by an updated version of its EOS Utility software – version 3. EOS Utility 3 acts in tandem with DPP 4 and enables you to download images from a camera’s memory card to your computer, remotely control the camera to capture new images or edit camera settings, such as the image owner’s name. You can then organise and process the imported images in Digital Photo Professional 4. EOS Utility 3 features improvements to form and function and the increased integration between Canon’s two free apps helps to streamline the shooting, importing and editing process. Indeed, you can now launch EOS Utility 3’s Live View window and remote camera shooting panel from within the Digital Photo Professional workspace, which allows the two packages to work together as a tighter team. CPN writer George Cairns takes a closer look at the capabilities of EOS Utility 3 and how it works alongside DPP 4..."
Canon EOS Utility 3.x is available from Canon USA. You must enter a compatible camera model number to download the software.
