This week, we discuss public speaking, mispronunciation of words, and the new show Atlanta. Adam also tells the story of how he recently fixed Norm's broken camera lens (an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM on a 5D Mark IV) with some unorthodox problem solving. Plus, a new book recommendation!
 
From Sean: For less severe stuck filter problems, we suggest keeping some of these in all your camera gear bags.

From the Adobe Creative Cloud YouTube Channel:
 
Photographer Andrew Scrivani shares his top 5 tips on how to improve your food photography.
 
Note from Sean: In Andrew's second tip, "Soften light with a diffuser," I would call the tool he uses a "diffusion panel," "scrim" or "diffuser," but not a "flag." A flag is typically used to entirely block light from an area, while the other terms are used for tools that modify the light that actually hits a scene. Also, the "light cutter" tool Andrew uses is typically referred to as a "black card" used for negative fill.

Tamron has published their 3Q FY2016 financial results. Unfortunately, they do not provide the easier-to-read presentation material, but... you may still get a sense that the previous quarter was not as good as last year's 3rd quarter by comparison.

From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
An important part of creating a botanical photograph with impact is one of the areas that people often ignore – COLOR. The use of color in your floral images can help create mood, vibrancy, electricity or tension. Choosing the soft pastel palette can create a restful, peaceful feeling. It can create a calmness that allows a respite for your eye, a certain soothing of the soul.

From Canon USA:
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., October 28, 2016 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce that Academy Award winners Leonardo DiCaprio and Fisher Stevens chose Canon EOS Digital Cinema cameras and lenses, including the Cinema EOS C300 Mark II camera, for their new documentary Before the Flood. Directed by Stevens and produced by DiCaprio, the film presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions individuals and society can take to help prevent catastrophic disruption on our planet. Before the Flood premieres on National Geographic Channel this Sunday, October 30th at 9 pm ET/8 pm CT in 171 countries and 45 languages. Coinciding with the television premiere, Before the Flood will also be released commercial free on a number of digital and streaming platforms around the world, including NatGeoTV.com and Nat Geo TV Apps.
 
The two filmmakers, known for their environmentally themed documentaries, joined forces for Before the Flood’s two-year production, which follows U.N. Messenger of Peace DiCaprio as he travels to five continents and the Arctic speaking to scientists, world leaders, activists and local residents to gain a deeper understanding of the complex issue of climate change and investigates concrete solutions to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time.
 
“Canon is honored to have been selected as the camera and lenses of choice in the creation of this documentary,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Viewers will see on Sunday, with the clarity of the imagery produced with Cinema EOS products, a compelling picture of the current environmental conditions around the world.” To capture the stunning visuals of the documentary, cinematographer Antonio Rossi relied on a mix of Canon EOS Digital Cinema cameras. He began production with the EOS C500 and EOS-1D C Digital Cinema Cameras, the latter often rigged to a handheld camera stabilizer. They shot portions of the documentary in RAW 4K using the EOS C500 camera in conjunction with an external recorder.
 
When the EOS C300 Mark II camera was introduced, the production adopted it as their new “A” camera. “The switch to the C300 Mark II camera was seamless and easy, and we were happy to have on-board 4K recording as well as extended color gamut options,” Rossi said. “Overall, we found that Canon Cinema EOS cameras were the perfect tools for this project, as they enabled us to shoot in a variety of configurations while maintaining a consistently beautiful look and image quality.” Before the Flood mixes interviews with some of the most influential world leaders, with chilling but beautiful footage from locations impacted by our changing global climate. Rossi and his team traveled north of the Arctic Circle to Greenland and to Canada’s Baffin Island to show the rapid ice melts, as well as to Sumatra to capture some palm oil farmers burning rain forest habitat, among other shooting locations.
 
Rossi primarily outfitted his cameras with the Canon CN-E 30-105mm T2.8 compact zoom lens and the CN-E 17-120mm T2.95-3.9 CINE-SERVO lens.
 
Before the Flood is vital viewing for anyone who has any doubts about humanity’s role in global climate change,” Rossi said. “Working with Fisher Stevens and Leonardo DiCaprio on the film was a magical and elucidating journey.”

We were expecting the arrival of the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens next week and anxious to begin testing, but... evidence suggests that we may be waiting a bit longer for the highly anticipated lens. The lens was originally scheduled for availability in "late October," but B&H now lists an expected availability date of December 10 for EF 24-105L update. Amazon expects the lens December 6.
 
Will the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR Camera with 24-105mm f/4L II Lens Kits, which were originally supposed to be available at the same time, be delayed as well? We're not sure, but neither B&H nor Amazon have changed their originally posted "Oct 31" expected availability date. If that's the case, we'll be ordering a 5D IV kit in order to get our hands on the lens ASAP.
 
B&H has the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Lens available for preorder.
