From Eyefi:
 
Eyefi mobile apps and cloud service gives photographers freedom to use multiple cameras and enjoy one unified, organized photo library available anytime, anywhere.
 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., November 20, 2014 — Eyefi (www.eyefi.com), the global leader in connecting digital cameras across devices and to the Internet, today announced it would make Eyefi Cloud available without the need for Eyefi Mobi WiFi SD card enabling photographers to use their smartphone or WiFi enabled camera to experience the benefits of a unified, organized library anytime, anywhere.
 
With Eyefi apps and cloud service, photographers will enjoy the benefits of instant organization, editing and sharing as soon as they take a photo and know that all their photos, regardless of which camera they used to take them, will be organized in a unified library available anytime, anywhere. Eyefi Cloud syncs the entire photo library to all devices so photographers can enjoy a simple, elegant and visually engaging photo library — always organized, always up-to-date on any device.
 
"Our research shows that photographers use multiple cameras and devices to take photos and that well over 200 billion photos will be taken next year," said Alan Bullock of InfoTrends. "Photographers and consumers alike are turning to apps and services that organize their burgeoning photo collections and make them accessible on the devices they use daily."
 
"Photographers want to focus on their craft rather than be mired in the details of photo management," said Matt DiMaria, CEO of Eyefi. "By making Eyefi Cloud available to anyone, photographers have the freedom to select the camera that's right for the moment and still enjoy a unified library in sync on all their favorite devices — all by simply clicking the shutter."
 
Eyefi provides a companion to photographers who use multiple devices and cameras including smartphones and WiFi cameras. Eyefi gives photographers the flexibility to choose the right camera to capture the perfect shot while at the same time eliminating the hassles of manual merging, e-mailing and endless searching. Photographers can pick up a smartphone to snap a photo of dinner with friends and it's automatically organized and synced through Eyefi Cloud. Additionally, photographers have the flexibility to add an Eyefi Mobi WiFi SD card to their digital camera to take fast action, low light shots and view those photos right along side the ones taken with the smartphone. As soon as the photo is taken, Eyefi Cloud syncs the entire photo library to your smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop and makes original resolution photos safe and secure.
 
Other features include:
 
  • Enhance and organize on the spot: Preview all your photos, make adjustments — crop, rotate, or organize them with tags or create albums using your phone, computer or tablet.
  • Learn and improve: See what camera settings (EXIF visualization) were used so you're able to recreate the perfect picture or make adjustments.
  • Enjoy every shot, everywhere: Photos sync to other devices automatically for instant access whenever and wherever you are, even offline.
Photographers can download the Eyefi Mobi app available for iOS, Android and Kindle devices to organize, edit and share the photos on their mobile device. Users can sign up for Eyefi Cloud within the Eyefi Mobi app to sync those photos to their favorite devices. Eyefi Cloud includes a free 30 day membership. Annual memberships are available for $49.99/year and include support for unlimited photo syncing and storage.

juicedLink Logo
JuicedLink debuted a product at NAB (March) that I was very interested in, the Little DARling (Distributed Audio Recording). The concept was simple – instead of using wireless mics to transmit their audio to a single recording source, each mic would be individually recorded at the point of capture to a small wearable device. While I was sure that distributed audio recording could introduce some issues that I'd need to consider, I thought it was a solution that I could use for several of my video productions (assuming it was cost-effective).
 
The Little DARling was initially scheduled for release in late summer 2014. As that time came and went, I sent an email to Robert at juicedLink on Wednesday to inquire about the delayed release. He was tight-lipped about the details regarding the delay, but nudged me to subscribe to the blog for updates (the blog hadn't actually been updated since March). Two days later, an updated appeared...
Little DARling Update: Wireless Control
 
So, everybody wants to know what happened to the Little DARling Distributed Audio Recorder that I showed at NAB this year. Well, I got more ideas of things I wanted to add to it. Specifically, wireless control. It was clear after many conversations at NAB, that the market adoption of the Little DARling would be limited until a couple of problems were first solved:
 
  • How to sync the audio from the Little DARling with the video, when the Little DARling audio could potentially be very different from the camera audio.
  • How to navigate within potentially very long DARling recordings.
My plan became to introduce both versions of the Little DARling at the same time, so they could share the same printed circuit board. So, this meant pushing out the original DARling, to work on the wireless stuff. I also did not want to go public with this plan until I was far enough along with the design, where I knew I could fit the wireless receiver on the board. Check out this brief introduction v-log:
 
The entire update is worth reading if you might be interested in the Little DARling. I'm personally looking forward to this release.
 
We'll keep you updated as more details – like availability and price – roll in. [Sean]

Canon Professional Network Logo
The Canon Professional Network: Tips and Tricks has been around for quite some time. It's updated quite regularly with new tidbits of information. Lately, they've been adding items relating to the EOS 7D Mark II and the Speedlite 600EX-RT.
 
From the Canon Professional Network: Tips and Tricks:
Speedlite 600EX-RT: auto assist beam firing
 
Within the camera menus of several EOS models, there is an option to enable or disable the AF assist beam when shooting in low light. If you enable the function on the camera menu, but the AF assist beam on your external Speedlite does not fire, check the Speedlite’s custom function settings. If the custom functions in the Speedlite are set to not fire the AF assist beam, this will over-ride any setting made in the camera menu. To re-enable the AF assist beam, simply switch the Speedlite custom function to allow the beam to fire.
 
EOS 7D Mark II: EOS iTR AF
 
Like the flagship EOS-1D X, the EOS 7D Mark II features EOS iTR AF, which improves autofocus tracking by recognising faces and subject colours in addition to looking for subject contrast. When shooting with the EOS iTR AF function enabled, you may find the AF is actually slightly slower and the maximum shooting speed in continuous high speed AF is slower than expected. This is especially likely in low-light shooting and is due to the extra data being processed from the metering system before a subject can be tracked. If you need the fastest AF possible and want to achieve the maximum frame rate and do not need to make use of the colour and face tracking, switch the EOS iTR AF setting to ‘disable’.
I suggest bookmarking the Tips and Tricks page and checking it periodically. Even if you're very familiar with your camera gear, you will likely find a useful gem.
 
Recent Tips and Tricks
 
  • EOS 7D Mark II: EOS iTR AF
  • EOS 7D Mark II: AF point orientation
  • EOS 7D Mark II: AF point selection settings
  • EOS 7D Mark II: AF Tracking sensitivity
  • EOS 7D Mark II: viewfinder information
  • EOS 7D Mark II: anti-flicker shooting
  • Speedlite 600EX-RT: auto assist beam firing

  • Speedlite 600EX-RT: temperature warning
  • Speedlite 600EX-RT: using modelling flash

  • EOS 70D: shutter speed display
  • EOS 70D: AF assist beam
  • EOS 70D: AI Focus and Servo function

Trout Surfacing in Alta Lakes, Telluride, CO
The drive to the abandoned mining camp at Alta Lakes in the Uncompahgre National Forest just south of Telluride is a treat – if you have a high-clearance 4x4 vehicle and you know how to drive off-road. The AWD crossover SUV I had rented was marginal in meeting that first qualification, but I'm apparently at least somewhat qualified for the second requirement as I managed to navigate the vehicle to Alta Lakes. Unquestionable is that the drive to this amazing scenery was worth taking.
 
When at a high elevation, strong wind is generally what you find. OK, more like always what you find. Even at about 11,000' of elevation, there was no wind on this day and the Alta Lakes (3 of them, Upper is shown here) were absolutely calm.
 
Give me a mirror-smooth lake with something attractive behind it and I can be entertained for hours. OK, more like days. The snow-covered Wilson Mountain easily qualified as "attractive".
 
There was one exception to the mirror-smooth water surface and that was the occasional trout feeding on the surface, sending rings of ripples across the lake surface. When this happened, I would pause my shooting until the lake was again smooth. Then the nicely-time trout rise happened.
 
I was shooting HDR images to insure that I had lots of flexibility in final image brightness. One frame was exposed to hold the highlights, preventing the brightest clouds from becoming blown (pure white with no detail). The second frame was exposed to maintain the shadow details including those in the evergreen trees. The third frame included a trout's jump that synched perfectly with my 2 second self-timer release. I find the trout, though small in the frame, to add a positive element to an image that I already liked.
 
I generally share images because I like them. It seems that images with clean frame borders very frequently bubble up in my selection process and this image again has this trait. From a compositional perspective, placing the horizon in the middle of the frame with a reflective lake in the foreground virtually guarantees a perfect vertical balance to the image.
 
A larger version of this image is available on Google+, Facebook and Flickr.

From Nikon USA:
 
“I AM Generation Image” Will Include Inspiring Content and Encourage Others to Share Their Own Passions Through Authentic Imagery
 
MELVILLE, NY (November 20, 2014) Today, Nikon Inc. has announced its new “I AM Generation Image” integrated campaign, which is the imaging leader’s new platform to amplify the voices of individuals who want to stand out in a world of visual noise. The brand campaign aims to reinforce confidence in the entry-level and enthusiast DSLR markets, and inspire people to create images far beyond just “good enough,” to have their stories heard. “I AM Generation Image” will officially start today, with the launch of an immersive website featuring the content of a select group of creative individuals representing some of the eyes and voices of this generation.
 
“Each day we upload tens of thousands of images, making us the first generation to truly embrace pervasive visual communication. Whether it’s love, laughter or a call to act for the greater good, the feeling you get when you look at a photo or watch a video should reflect the intent and emotions of the person behind the lens,” said Lisa Baxt, Associate General Manager of Communications, Nikon Inc. “Generation Image was created to answer this need, and celebrates the stories of our lives and the important role that imagery plays in telling them, while inspiring users to capture more, and capture better using Nikon.”
 

 
Defining “I AM Generation Image”
 
The concept of “Generation Image” was born from a desire to understand people’s relationships with their images. After extensive research, it became clear that the number of images captured and shared every day is significantly increasing, and that quality is critical to celebrate and purposefully represent the motivations of this new generation of image makers. Across the country, people are using their cameras as a tool to share what is important to them and each have the potential for significant impact. From families or hobbies, personal causes to accomplishments, this new segment of creative individuals enjoys expressing and sharing what they are passionate about through photos and videos. On social media channels, the hashtag #IAMGenerationImage is a rallying cry. It echoes the desire to deliver the best images possible, in order to convey emotions and passions that rise above the noise.
 
“I AM Generation Image” reminds us that we are all part of this generation, and Nikon will enable our stories to ring loud, true and authentic. The campaign will help to define this generation as the first to overwhelmingly express themselves through images en masse and on a global scale. The successful “I AM” international campaign has acted as a worldwide catalyst for millions of fans to self-identify with the Nikon brand. The new campaign builds upon the “I AM” architecture to make imaging a personal experience for North America.
 
Campaign Elements
 
In North America, the campaign begins today in the United States with an experience site that features content from a select group of extraordinary individuals who document their own passions through imagery. This group of visual storytellers will capture content that will be seen through an immersive experiential website that acts as a portal, offering a glimpse into their fascinating worlds. These individuals are a diverse group of personalities who are not professional photographers; they represent a wide range of stories from entrepreneurs, philanthropists, comedians and more. The online portal will also act as a hub for the campaign, offering followers a chance to become personally invested with the lives of this imaginative group as they share content in real-time. Formal participants in the campaign will share imagery under the hashtag “#IAMGenerationImage” and Nikon will encourage widespread consumer participation through its social channels.
 
The “I AM Generation Image” Campaign will be driven by non-traditional media, including video advertisements, digital media on relevant websites, rich media and social paid promotion. Additionally, a series of videos defining the campaign will drive to the branded microsite. Consumers will see an immersive experience through rich media advertisements, and both mobile and desktop users will enjoy an interactive experience with high production values for video and sound. Users will also be encouraged to interact with the campaign by tagging their own visual stories with #IAmGenerationImage for the chance to be incorporated into the campaign. Advertisements will run through the end of 2014 and the Spring of 2015 to support the various aspects of the campaign. The integrated campaign was created and will be executed by Nikon’s agency partners, McCann Erickson, ID Media, MRM / McCann, Initiative Media and MWW.

From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
"Blood Brother is one of those films that lingers with you for a long time after the credits roll. In part, of course, this is due to the truly heart-wrenching, soul-searching and thought-provoking content. But also present in the mind’s eye are the images – truthful, sad, scary, and yet uplifting and enlightening.
 
“The artistry in Blood Brother is one of the things I'm most proud of,” says Blood Brother’s cinematographer John Pope. 'It might not be the most classically beautiful film. From a cinematography standpoint, it’s sloppy at times, it has such a raw edge to it, but I like that. Those moments of rawness are beautiful. They lend themselves perfectly to the character and human element of the film.'"

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens
Image quality results have been added to the Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens Review page.
 
My expectation was for this lens to be a great bargain – similar to the nearly-identical Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens. If I directly compare these two lenses on the same camera body (with a very low sharpness setting), my initial impressions are that my expectations have been realized. You will see more distortion in the 24 (the barrel variety), but these two lenses are otherwise more similar than different in this comparison. That is a lot of image quality for a nicely-built pocket lens costing only $149.00.

When I think about portraiture, I think of Gregory Heisler. When I think about photojournalism, Joe McNally is who I think of first.
 
I've been a big fan of Joe McNally's work for several years now. To me, Joe's work perfectly blends creative storytelling with technical skill. Watching this video simply confirmed what I already knew – that Joe's a master of his craft. [Sean]

Canon EOS 7D II, 1D X and 5D Mark III AF Point Comparison
Ever since the 7D Mark II was announced, the big question on my mind has been "How does the 7D Mark II AF system compare to the best-ever-prior AF system found in the 1D X and 5D Mark III?"
 
The 1D X and 5D Mark III AF systems are easily the best I've ever used and my in-focus hit rate when using these cameras, especially with subjects in motion, has never been higher. Then the 7D Mark II was announced with even more focus points (including a higher number of cross-type AF points) and many of the same or even improved AF features found in the 1D X/5D Mark III.
 
To answer this question, Chuck Westfall (Advisor, Technical Information, Canon USA) was gracious enough to prepare a detailed technical comparison for us. Chuck's information is a must-read for anyone choosing between these three DSLRs:
