Image quality results from the Canon EOS 5Ds R and Canon EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 IS Lens Review.
 
While an f/2.8 max aperture for a prime lens may not grab your attention, this lens' image quality might. The 28 f/2.8 IS is regularly a decent value and the $100.00 instant reward makes it a great value.

The iamNikon blog has a very interesting article on the aerial photography of Dan Vojtech.
 
One of the most impressive shots from the article involves Vojtech using strobes placed in each plane flying in a mirror formation. The strobes are positioned to light the plane which is flying about 15 feet away (above/below). [Sean]

May 20, 2016 – TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that its D5 digital SLR camera is the recipient of the Camera GP (Grand Prix) 2016 Readers Award. The Camera Grand Prix is held by the Camera Journal Press Club (C.J.P.C. / Japan).
 
The Readers Award is presented to the camera that is selected through voting by users. Out of the nine times the Readers Award has been presented, Nikon digital SLR cameras have been the recipients of the award a total of seven times, proving that Nikon cameras are extremely popular with, and appreciated by, a great number of camera users.
 
Earlier this year, the D5 was also the recipient of the TIPA Awards 2016 Best DSLR Professional/Action awards, sponsored by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA).
 
Reasons the D5 was selected: A selection of comments from users
 
  • The D5 exhibits the absolute performance and presence of a flagship model. I am especially impressed with its unparalleled performance at high sensitivities, which greatly expands the possibilities for imaging expression.
  • I really like the fact that it is a still camera that offers a level of advancement never before seen with all major functions, including AF, AE, and high-sensitivity characteristics, and that it clearly expresses the direction cameras and technology will take in the future.
  • With features such as support for standard sensitivities as high as ISO 102400, advanced AF, and a touch screen monitor, this model seems indicative of what we can expect of flagship models in the future. In addition, the availability of two versions of the camera, one supporting XQD cards and one CompactFlash cards, clearly shows that Nikon took both existing and new users into consideration with development.
  • The excellence of this camera is something of which Japan can be extremely proud.
D5 primary features
 
  • A new-generation, 153-point AF system capable of capturing the intended subject under a wide variety of conditions
  • High-speed continuous shooting at up to approximately 12 fps with a viewfinder display that keeps the view through the lens incredibly stable for clear visibility
  • Consistently superior image quality, even with shooting at high sensitivities
  • Equipped with a 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) movie recording function that videographers will find very useful
  • Functions and performance that respond to a variety of on-site demands and achieve a fast workflow

Adobe Releases Spark Web App and Updates Companion Mobile Apps
 
Thursday, May 19, 2016 9:00 am EDT - SAN JOSE, Calif - Adobe today announced the immediate availability of Adobe Spark, the only integrated web and mobile solution for creating and sharing impactful visual stories. Free and designed for everyday communications, Adobe Spark empowers anyone - including small businesses, social marketers and students - to create stunning visual content that engages audiences across multiple channels and looks great on any device.
 
“Today anyone can create content and share it via social media, but most people lack the skill, time and resources to create something that cuts through the online clutter,” said Bryan Lamkin, executive vice president and general manager, Digital Media at Adobe. “With Adobe Spark, anyone can create authentic, professional looking visual content for their project, passion, cause or business."
 
A new service that is part of Creative Cloud, Adobe Spark brings Adobe’s 30-plus years of technology and innovation for creative professionals to creative consumers. The Adobe Spark web app seamlessly syncs with Spark Post, Spark Page and Spark Video iOS mobile apps, allowing users to create, edit and share their story from wherever they are - regardless of their design experience.
 
The integrated solution consists of:
 
  • Adobe Spark web app: a browser-based web experience for creating social posts and graphics, web stories and animated videos.
  • Spark Post: an iOS mobile app that enables anyone to create stunning social posts and graphics in seconds.
  • Spark Page: an iOS mobile app that helps users create beautiful web stories.
  • Spark Video: an iOS mobile app that enables users to create compelling animated videos in minutes.
Helping Entrepreneurs and Businesses Succeed
 
As part of its focus on everyday communications, Adobe Spark is designed to help solo entrepreneurs and small businesses succeed. Adobe is collaborating with Facebook Blueprint - a new global education and certification program to help agencies and advertisers achieve their business results through marketing on Facebook and Instagram platforms. Facebook Blueprint users will benefit from Adobe’s expert guidance through tutorial content on how to successfully market themselves on the Facebook and Instagram platforms using Adobe Spark.
 
Adobe Spark is also partnering with Change.org, the world's largest social change platform, to co-create training materials for petitioners and change agents. Petitions with a video receive six times more signatures than those without, and Change.org petitioners will gain access to Adobe Spark resources for creating effective explainer videos for cause-based and crowdfunding campaigns that further their causes.

Additional resources and inspirational Adobe Spark content is available at:
