From Red Giant:
PluralEyes v4.0 audio/video syncing software for any Non-Linear Editor. Sync directly in Premiere Pro without leaving the host-app. More automation than ever before. Red Giant Offload integration with PluralEyes, and much more.
Portland, OR – February 10, 2016 – Red Giant today announced the release of Shooter Suite v13.0, which features the brand new PluralEyes v4.0, the fastest, most accurate audio/video sync tool available, compatible with any Non-Linear Editor. Topping the list of new features in PluralEyes 4.0 is the ability to sync with PluralEyes directly in Premiere Pro, without having to leave the host app, Smart Start capabilities, automatic drift correction, vertical track scaling, integration with Red Giant Offload, and more simplicity and automation than ever before.
What’s New in PluralEyes 4.0
Syncing audio and video clips in PluralEyes is now easier than ever, with flawlessly synced media just a click away thanks to under the hood enhancements that allow PluralEyes to analyze footage and automatically choose the the best possible options, so the user doesn’t have to. Sporting a completely updated look, additional new features include:
Adobe Premiere Pro Panel
All the power and simplicity of syncing in PluralEyes without ever leaving Adobe Premiere Pro – just hit the sync button in the Premiere Pro Panel and PluralEyes takes care of the rest. Giving users ease of mind, PluralEyes in Premiere Pro offers the same color coding capabilities as it does in the standalone version, so editors will know which clips, if any, require attention.
Smart Start
Importing media is easier than ever with PluralEyes’ Smart Start feature. Drag and drop an entire folder of media into PluralEyes, and during a sync it will automatically detect which device the media came from. Your files will be sorted so that media from the same device are on the same track.
Automatic Drift Correction
When syncing long clips, sound and video can tend to stop matching up perfectly. PluralEyes can account for this and export a perfect sync with Automatic Drift Correction, announced in version 3.5. New in version 4, when drift is detected, PluralEyes will automatically fix it, then give editors the option to toggle between the drift-corrected sync and the original audio for comparison.
Color Coding for Unsynced Clips
An essential feature from the PluralEyes beginnings, color coded visuals show editors the progress of the sync, making it easy to make adjustments. Now, export from PluralEyes to Premiere Pro features a color coding option for clips that don’t sync properly.
Red Giant Offload Integration
Red Giant Offload performs a checksum during media transfer from camera card to hard drive, giving filmmakers the peace of mind that footage was backed up with no loss. PluralEyes 4.0 is able to detect Offload events and bring footage over, for a seamless workflow from Offload to PluralEyes to the host-app.
And more
  • PluralEyes now has the same keyboard shortcuts as Premiere Pro for a more intuitive, familiar timeline and playback experience.
  • Vertical Track Scaling in PluralEyes 4.0 allows users to see more detail in the waveform when inspecting media.
  • Users can easily compare tracks and verify the sync by selecting which audio waveform is shown next to the video track
  • A brand new look that modernizes the application, keeping in line with the entire line of Red Giant tools.
PluralEyes 4.0 is available for Red

From Google:
Moving on from Picasa
Friday, February 12, 2016 – Since the launch of Google Photos, we’ve had a lot of questions around what this means for the future of Picasa. After much thought and consideration, we’ve decided to retire Picasa over the coming months in order to focus entirely on a single photo service in Google Photos. We believe we can create a much better experience by focusing on one service that provides more functionality and works across mobile and desktop, rather than divide our efforts across two different products.
We know for many of you, a great deal of care has gone into managing your photos and videos using Picasa—including the hours you’ve invested and the most precious moments you’ve trusted us with. So we will take some time in order to do this right and provide you with options and easy ways to access your content. We’ve outlined below some of the changes you can expect.
The transition to Google Photos starts on May 1, 2016. See the full Google post for more information.

Both Tamron and Sigma seem to be set to announce new lenses very soon.
Tamron is teasing at least two lenses on its website with an ETA a week from today. Sigma Austria is teasing on its Facebook page that another "world's first" will be added to their lens lineup on February 23.
It looks like next week will be an interesting one as far as lens announcements are concerned. We'll keep you posted.

From Motherboard:
A piece of legislation that would exempt small drones from almost all upcoming Federal Aviation Administration regulations has been attached to an FAA funding bill in Congress, a version of which must pass before the end of March.
The "Micro UAS" or "Micro Drone" amendment has been added to the Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Authorization (AIRR) Act, a bill that funds the FAA and must be passed by March 31 in order to keep the agency that oversees all aviation in the country functioning as normal.
The rule would exempt drones under 4.4 pounds from upcoming FAA commercial drone regulations, meaning anyone could fly a drone for any purpose, so long as it’s under the weight limit. The drones would still have to be operated under 400 feet, at speeds of less than 46 MPH, within line of sight of the operator, during daylight, and at least 5 miles away from any airport.
The “micro UAS” distinction would subdivide the FAA’s “small UAS” distinction, which encompasses all drones between 0 and 55 pounds. Most small hobby drones weigh less than 4.4 pounds.
Check out the full article on Motherboard for more information.

From Zhongyi Optics:
Shenyang China, Feb 14, 2016 – Zhongyi Optics (ZY Optics) has released an improved version of their first f/0.95 lens, Zhongyi Mitakon Speedmaster 35mm f/0.95 Mark II. The mark II verison features a drastic improvement in sharpness, better control of chromatic abberations and a much more compact size. The new version comes with a Fuji X / Sony E / EOS-M mount and is able to cover the image circle of APS-C sized sensors.
Zhongyi Mitakon Speedmaster 35mm f/0.95 Mark II is an ultra-fast prime lens which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of around 53mm in APS-C cameras. A maximum aperture of f/0.95 makes it extremely convenient to shoot in a low light conditions without flash. The new optical design incorporates a 11 elements in 8 groups structure, including one of extra-low disperson elements, two extra-high refractive index elements and three high refractive index elements. This structure effectively improved the image resolution by 30% compared to the previous version from corner to corner. This also controls the chromatic abberations very well and delivers excellent image sharpness even at f/0.95.

The new Speedmaster 35mm f/0.95 is light and compact. Total weight has been reduced from 680g to 460g, making it an ideal companion for the compact mirrorless cameras. Manual focus design and a click-less, silent aperture ring promote smooth handling and are especially well-suited to video applications. The lens features a metallic enclosure with the finest finishing, which gives extra durability and a pleasing aesthetic.
Pricing & AvailabilityMitakon Speedmaster 35mm f/0.95 is now available to purchase at authorized resellers. The recommended retail price is $599.00.
