The Rio 2016 Olympic games are scheduled to run from Friday, August 5 to Sunday, August 21. Considering the sheer number of great photographers covering the event, a flood of captivating images is inevitable.

From the Mike Olbinski Vimeo Channel:
 
Blood. Sweat. Tears. Joy. That's what this spring was for me. The miles, the grind, the failing, the epic days missed, the lack of sleep, the jubilation, the friendships strengthened, and the time away from my family. And when the chasing was all done...wondering, was worth it all?
 
Heck yeah it was.
 
I had three goals this spring: Get a tornado on time-lapse, capture the best footage I possibly could, and chase as much as my schedule would allow. That ended up totalling 18 chase days. 20,000 miles driven. Almost 60,000 time-lapse frames shot. Nine total states. Hours and hours and hours of editing. All between April 15th and June 15th.

From Makiko Yamazaki, Reuters:
Canon Inc (7751.T) cut its full-year profit forecast on Tuesday, becoming Japan's first major technology company to report a weaker outlook on the yen's surge following Britain's vote to leave the European Union.
 
The world's biggest maker of cameras and printers forecast group operating profit of 265 billion yen ($2.54 billion) for the year through December, from 300 billion yen estimated three months prior.

Verizon has agreed to purchase Yahoo for the paltry sum of $4.83 billion. Considering that Microsoft offered to buy Yahoo only 8 years ago for a cool $45 billion, "paltry sum" seems like a fair descriptor even if Yahoo's glory days seem far behind them.
 
Included in the purchase – and of special interest to our site visitors – is Flickr, the still-popular photo sharing site. While Flickr may not be the juggernaut it once was, it's a service that I still personally enjoy using on a daily basis.
 
Even though I have many photo sharing accounts (500px, SmugMug, Google Photos, Instagram, etc), Flickr continues to be the one I like best. It's simple to use and there are wonderful groups who enjoy aiding in one's growth in photography. And even though Flickr has seemed neglected at times over the last few years, it has steadily improved (for the most part), regaining some relevance in the process (in my opinion, of course).
 
However, Verizon's takeover of Flickr gives me pause. I doubt Flickr is highly profitable in its current form, so I'm concerned about what changes Verizon might bring about to better capitalize on their investment.
 
Ads everywhere? A higher price for Pro Accounts? Disk quota limitations placed on all members? A complete liquidation assets or shutting it down entirely? Your guess is as good as mine.
 
Only time will tell if I am needlessly worried or hopelessly spinning my wheels with a photo sharing service that's seen its last hurrah.

From the Canon Professional Network:
When planning their next IMAX 3D film ‘A Beautiful Planet’ about the International Space Station, Director Toni Myers and Cinematographer James Neihouse soon realised they would have to make the move from film to digital. Since their last Space Station film together in 2002, the Space Shuttle had been withdrawn from service, removing the option to shift weighty film canisters in and out of orbit. CPN writer James Morris asked Neihouse how the 4K quality of Canon’s EOS C500 and EOS-1D C digital cinema cameras helped reveal space in all its three dimensional glory...
