Putting the “real” in “virtual reality”
 
March 31, 2016 – Virtual reality has brought us to places ranging from the bottom of the ocean to the surface of Mars. But as good as VR is, it’s never been quite as real as, well… real life. Google Cardboard Plastic, launching today, changes all that. It’s our latest step toward truly immersive technology—a new viewer that lets you see, touch, smell and hear the world just like you do in real life.
 
Cardboard Plastic is the world’s first actual reality headset, complete with 4D integrated perspective, 360° spatially accurate sound, 20/20 resolution, and advanced haptics for realistic touch sensations. Expertly crafted from polymethyl methacrylate, Cardboard Plastic is lightweight, waterproof, and engineered to last a lifetime—no batteries, no wires. And unlike other VR headsets, it integrates seamlessly into your life—so you’ll never miss a thing. Unless you blink.
 
Find more about Cardboard Plastic at google.com/cardboardplastic. The future is clear.

In 2010, Canon announced a special Studio Version of its EOS 7D which allowed for the embedding of barcode details in its images' EXIF information via a specially modified WFT-E5A Wireless File Transmitter.
 
Although no official announcement has been made, it seems Canon has developed a similarly modified EOS 7D Mark II and has provided an overview of its capabilities when paired with a WFT-E7A. Here are couple of screenshots from the video above:
 
Canon EOS 7D Mark II Studio Version Overview 1

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Studio Version Overview 2

As you can see, the Studio Version of the 7D Mark II can be identified by a label on the battery door. Right now there is no indication whether or not previously-purchased WFT-E7s will have to be modified by a service center in order to enable compatability with the extra features available in the 7D II SV.
 
My guess is that Canon USA will release an official announcement about the specially modified EOS 7D Mark II in the not-so-distant future.
 
From Canon USA:
 
Join Canon USA Technical Advisor Mike Gurley as he gives an overview of the EOS 7D Mark II SV Studio Version with a barcode solution. He goes over key camera features and discusses how the camera can be used for different workflows in event photography. Mike also shows how to set up the camera to sync with a compatible barcode scanner.

From Fotodiox:
 
MARCH 29, 2016 –Fotodiox Pro, creator and distributor of several lines of specialty solutions for videography, cinematography and photography, has announced the Wonderpana FreeArc XL - a comprehensive filter system for the Canon 11-24mm lens. Ultra wide-angle lenses, like Canon's extremely wide 11-24mm lens, are usually impossible to filter due to their bulbous front lens element, lack of filter threads and potential for severe vignetting with typical filter solutions.
 
The WonderPana FreeArc XL, however, is the latest in Fotodiox’s custom filter system line and is designed expressly for the Canon 11-24mm lens. Its aircraft aluminum lens collar allows photographers to attach a custom series of massive 186mm filter options, like ND 4-1000 and circular polarizers.
 
The WonderPana filter system has been a worldwide success since its debut, particularly among landscape and architectural photographers and filmmakers. To suit Canon’s ultra wide 11-24mm lens, Fotodiox re-engineered the WonderPana FreeArc to create larger "XL" versions of the mounting system and custom filters to maintain the same level of flexibility and creative control as the acclaimed original.
 
Durable and lightweight enough for hand-held shooting, the WonderPana FreeArc XL can be ready at a moment’s notice to answer any image challenge that require filters. It can even remain installed full-time on a photographer’s lens as a critical layer of lens protection.
 
Additionally, photographers can add the WonderPana WP80 Filter Brackets to the WonderPana FreeArc XL to mount one or two square graduated filters at the same time as a round filter. Measuring 200mm x 260mm, the WonderPana FreeArc XL's square filters are the largest commercially available in the industry today, available as both soft and hard-edged graduated filters at .6 and .9 ND – perfect for meeting any shooting conditions head-on.
 
The WonderPana FreeArc XL is available now for $229.95.
 
The Fotodiox WonderPana FreeArc XL is available on Amazon.

As I work through the 80D evaluation, testing this camera's Anti-Flicker Mode was on my to-do list. This technology is such a game-changer for indoor and after-dark outdoor action that I felt compelled to share the test results from the latest EOS model to feature this capability.
 
The top set of images show consecutive frames from an 80D 7 fps burst using a 1/1000 sec shutter speed under fluorescent lights with no flicker avoidance in use. The uneven brightness and white balance shown in these photos represents a daunting post processing challenge.
 
The best solution to the light flicker problem is Canon's Anti-Flicker Mode, available in many of Canon's EOS DSLR cameras, starting with the 7D Mark II. The bottom 8 images show the results of the enabling the Anti-Flicker Mode. My results from shooting an indoor soccer match with the 80D were similarly excellent.
 
B&H has the Canon EOS 80D in stock.
