RØDE iXY Stereo Microphone
From RØDE:
 
The RØDE iXY stereo microphone for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has been recognised as a product of the very highest design quality by the prestigious international Red Dot awards. An expert panel of 37 judges from around the world, including fashion icon Jimmy Choo, assessed over 4,600 products from 54 different countries and identified the iXY as a creative, innovative and overall outstanding product.
 
Since its inception in 1955, the Red Dot awards have represented the highest standards of product design. It acknowledges the excellent ergonomics, functionality, longevity, formal quality, durability, aesthetics and innovation of a product.
 
The iXY is RØDE’s first product offering for Apple’s iOS devices, and features broadcast-quality 24-bit, 96kHz recording. It is the only iOS microphone able to record at such a high quality resolution.
 
It features a matched pair of ½ inch condenser capsules arranged in a stacked XY configuration, ensuring detailed and immersive soundscapes that are always true-to-life. These are housed in an all-metal chassis that makes the iXY incredibly robust, while also adding electromagnetic shielding.
 
Its unique combination of portability and high-quality audio capture makes the iXY suitable for a wide range of applications, from recording live music to sound design and on-camera use, through to reporting and electronic news gathering (ENG).
 
“Everyone here at RØDE is incredibly proud of this honour,” commented Damien Wilson, RØDE’s Global Marketing & Sales Director. “The iXY represents years of blood, sweat and tears, and to have it received so well by customers and critics alike is validation of the entire team’s efforts.”
 
Peter Cooper, RØDE’s Vice President of Design and New Product Development echoed this sentiment. "We're delighted to win a Red Dot Award. The iXY is designed to be the best product of its kind in the world. To receive such high level recognition is testament to the quality of work by the many people involved."
 
Professor Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of the red dot, pointed out that strong design competence is a hallmark of a Red Dot award winner, explaining, “The winners of the ‘red dot award: product design 2013’ are the protagonists of a highly developed design culture and design industry.”
 
The RØDE iXY will be on display at the Red Dot museum in Essen, Germany along with all 2013 Red Dot Product Design award winners from July 2nd to 28, 2013.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens
Your second-most important lens is probably your telephoto zoom. So it only makes sense that the Canon Telephoto Zoom Lens recommendations page is released second in our long week of suggestions. These lenses cover a very wide range of uses, providing great utility to the kit they join.
 
A focal length range example is included along with a handful of recommendations covering a wide range of prices.

From Canon:
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., April 4, 2013 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the opening of its service and support center in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey. This facility is located just across the George Washington Bridge outside of New York City, and will provide comprehensive product repair and maintenance services for the growing customer base of Canon's professional imaging products.
 
The Ridgefield Park on-site repair operations include state-of-the-art camera and lens dark rooms, Canon's most advanced adjustment and calibration equipment, spare parts inventory, and an experienced repair staff that will work to quickly return Canon's professional products to their original factory condition and operation. This new facility, available exclusively for Platinum and Gold level members of Canon's Professional Services (CPS) program, including owners of Cinema EOS products, and broadcast lens clients, confirms Canon U.S.A.'s commitment to providing personalized and local service and support to imaging professionals in the New York/New Jersey metro region.
 
This facility is Canon's second service facility exclusively available to professional clients, joining the Canon Hollywood Professional Technology & Support Center that debuted in the heart of Hollywood, CA, early last year. Both facilities provide factory quality repair and maintenance service for Canon's extensive lineup of professional-grade cameras, including EOS Digital SLR cameras, Cinema EOS cameras, and high-definition camcorders. All of Canon's professional lenses, including EF series photography lenses, Cinema lenses, and broadcast and studio lenses are also supported at this new facility.
 
"The opening of another support facility that caters exclusively to imaging professionals signifies the growth and demand of Canon's professional imaging products and Canon's commitment to imaging professionals," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies and Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. "Opening this location illustrates our desire to bring Canon's industry-leading support directly to our clients in areas where they work and live. Being closer to our customers will help enable us to further improve on our outstanding repair processing times for professional products, which average less than three days in most instances."
 
An advance reservation is required for all service and support requests handled by the Ridgefield Park, N.J. facility. Canon Professional Services (CPS) Platinum and Gold level members can make a reservation via the CPS hotline by calling 1 (888) CPS-4540. Owners of Cinema EOS, professional video cameras and broadcast lenses should call 1 (855) CINE EOS to schedule an appointment.
 
Additional camera and lens service facilities for both professional and consumer clients are located in Jamesburg, N.J., Irvine, C.A., and Newport News, V.A. Each of these facilities operates with the same Canon speed and quality that is unrivaled in the industry. By the end of the year, Canon plans to further expand its local service center presence to the Midwest with the opening of a new service and support facility to support imaging professionals in the Chicago market.

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM
OK - There will be enough new/updated pages to cover a week and a half. So I'm starting this "week" on a Wednesday.
 
It is Spring in the northern hemisphere and we are ready to end hibernation and to start filling memory cards. Spring sports have started and I *think* the grass is showing a hint of green-ness. Leaves will soon be pushing out and the landscape will take on a new attractiveness.
 
The Canon lens recommendation pages on the site were showing some age, so I'm going to be announcing updates and additions all this "week". Hopefully you can find a cure to that Spring Fever amid these pages.
 
To get started, the General Purpose Lens Recommendations page update is now live.
 
The general purpose zoom is probably the most-used and most-important lens in your kit. It should be the highest quality model you can afford.
