From Nikon:
 
The Next Generation Full-Featured Social Camera Helps Users Step Up Their Photo Sharing With Stunning Images and Instant Access to Their Favorite Apps
 
April 10, 2014 – MELVILLE, NY – Today, Nikon Inc. announced the new COOLPIX S810c, which combines Nikon’s powerful camera imaging technologies and the vast capabilities of the Android Operating System (OS). Whether photographing friends dancing into the night or fast-action sports, the 16.0-megapixel COOLPIX S810c helps users never again settle for sharing a sub-par cell phone photo to their social networks.
 
“The COOLPIX S810c combines the best parts of a Nikon camera and the limitless possibilities of the Android Operating System, so users can seamlessly integrate their digital lives with their creative passions,” said Masahiro Horie, Director of Marketing and Planning, Nikon Inc. “Nikon COOLPIX S810c users will be able to stay connected and share everyday moments with ease through Full HD video and amazing stills.”
 
Capture and Share Photos, Without Sacrificing Image Quality
 
The new Nikon COOLPIX S810c provides users with the power to capture high quality images in low-light or from a distance, delivering the results that would otherwise be a challenge to capture with a smartphone. The COOLPIX S810c features a 16.0-megapixel, backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor for excellent low-light ability, and a 12x optical zoom NIKKOR lens (with24x Dynamic Fine Zoom) to get the sharp shots from up close or far away. Further bolstering the low-light capability of the S810c, the camera has an ISO range up to 3200, as well as Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) to help banish blurry photos, even while shooting handheld. To capture those special moments, the camera also has a fast continuous shooting mode.
 
Stay Connected, Share Effortlessly With Built-in Wi-Fi
 
Whether liking a status or tagging a photo, COOLPIX S810c users can seamlessly share their most memorable moments with friends and family with the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean Operating System. When accessing Google Play, users have access to endless apps including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and many other apps where they can share photos and stay connected. With the Android OS, users can surf the web, read their latest emails, browse through their friends’ photos and videos, navigate with maps as well as many other functions offered by Android apps. The built-in Wi-Fi capabilities of the S810c provide a simple way to directly share photos instantly with friends and family. When no external Wi-Fi network is available, users can also connect to a compatible smartphone or tablet via the dedicated “Connect to S810c” app*(1) in order to transfer, share and view their images on that smart device. Additionally, the COOLPIX S810c has built-in GPS for location-based apps, as well as a stereo headphone jack, which allows users to operate their camera as a mobile media player device. With the COOLPIX S810c users can easily navigate to their dinner date, while listening to their favorite playlist, and then shoot and share their entrée as well as the night’s details with friends, all with the same device.
 
Proven Nikon Technologies and Features
 
Whether sharing, swiping, composing or navigating, users will appreciate the wide and bright 3.7-in. touch-screen LCD monitor with 1.2 million-dot resolution, as well as the ability to capture Full 1080p HD video. Additionally, COOLPIX S810c photographers can explore their creativity with a variety of special and creative effects including user-friendly modes and features like Easy Panorama, which lets the user simply sweep the camera to create an ultra-wide panoramic image. Furthermore, the camera also features a new enhanced battery, allowing users to stay connected longer.

The Nikon COOLPIX S810c will be available in early May 2014 in Black or White for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $349.95.

Datacolor SpyderHD Color Calibration Bundle
From Datacolor:
 
Integrated color management tools for imaging professionals seeking an all-in-one solution
 
Lawrenceville, NJ – April 7, 2014 – Datacolor, a global leader in color management solutions, today announced SpyderHD, the premiere color calibration suite for advanced and professional photographers and videographers. SpyderHD is designed to color manage photo and video workflows, from scene, camera and editing, to final output.
 
SpyderHD includes the new Spyder4ELITE HD integrated display calibration application; the first of its kind, with calibration functions for computer displays, video reference displays, and TVs, all within a single application. SpyderHD also includes the innovative SpyderWEB, a universal mounting system that securely mounts the Spyder for calibration of most screens up to 70”.
 
“As a photographer who has been calibrating for a long time, I understand the value of color calibration. SpyderHD is my preferred solution for tonal linearity in computer display calibration, and beats my personal calibration technique for video reference display calibration,” says Lee Varis, renowned Hollywood photographer.
 
In addition to display calibration offerings, SpyderHD includes two important camera solutions: the SpyderCHECKR, a powerful color reference and gray card system, and the portable SpyderCUBE, which provides white balance, exposure, black level and highlight references in any lighting condition. Combined, these tools enable photographers and videographers to capture consistent color day-to-day and camera-to-camera, enhancing their entire digital workflow.
 
“There is nothing else like the SpyderCUBE; the value of it is hard to over-emphasize for defining the light sources in a shot,” continued Varis. “Also, I find the SpyderCHECKR to provide all the camera color correction I need, for both photo and video.”
 
SpyderHD is available immediately for $349.00 USD at photo and video retailers. For more information, visit www.datacolor.com/spyder-hd-pr.

AVCHD and Canon XF support. Faster import. PluralEyes integration.
 
Today, Red Giant announced BulletProof 1.2, an update that brings more camera support and other improvements to its footage backup and preparation tool.
 
Bruce Sharpe, Shooter Suite business unit manager said, “Last year at NAB, we released BulletProof - a product that we knew had the potential to become an essential tool for shooters. This year, we’ve updated it to support the AVCHD and Canon XF format, two formats that are a mainstay of the industry.”
 
In addition to the existing support for Canon and Nikon DSLRs and GoPro cameras, BulletProof now includes support for Panasonic and Sony DSLRs, and for the Canon C-series and XF-series cameras.
 
BulletProof is designed to solve several challenges that, since the DSLR revolution, have plagued shooters, both on set and right before post-production. One of those challenges is the issue of reliable backup.
 
“Shooters work under extreme time pressure while on set,” said Randon Morford, Shooter Suite product manager. “Reliable file backup is often considered a luxury. At best, most shooters simply copy their footage to a hard drive, blazing on with their shoot and hoping for the best. Too often, however, the data is corrupt and doesn’t make it to the timeline. We designed BulletProof to make sure that never happens.”
 
BulletProof, which boasts robust automated backup and verification tools, allows shooters to do what they are already doing, but with confidence. Once the camera card is in the card reader, BulletProof creates copies of your footage and verifies them to ensure a perfect duplication. In addition, while the footage is being backed up, the shooter can use BulletProof’s GPU-accelerated playback tools to review the footage and make sure they got the shots they need.
 
Also new to BulletProof is a highly requested feature called “Add Mode” - a reference mode that speeds up the import process by cataloging media that has already been copied to disk.
 
While BulletProof's features start with backup and review of footage on set, it also addresses the next area of pain in the shooter’s process - preparing the footage and notes for post-production. BulletProof includes powerful tools for tagging, adding metadata, notes, in-and-out points, and even suggested color correction to the footage - all to help bring the shooter’s intention over to the timeline. These features can be used right on set or once the shooter gets back to the edit suite.
 
In addition, BulletProof is now integrated with PluralEyes, Red Giant’s hugely popular automated audio/video sync tool. One of the editing industry’s most popular tools, PluralEyes literally saves hours or days of audio/video syncing work, with the touch of a button. BulletProof now makes the process even more fluid by sending the footage over to PluralEyes in an organized way, so that you can sync your footage immediately. Once synced, PluralEyes sends the footage directly to the editing timeline, ready for editing.
 
“Since PluralEyes allows the shooter to work more freely on set by not having to worry about timecode or clapboards,” said Sharpe, who also created the app, “it seemed like a natural progression to have our footage backup and prep tool integrated with the next tool in the production chain.”
 
“For the last year we have been singularly focused on making BulletProof a better tool for people working on set and in the edit bay,” added Morford. “We’re proud to offer a product that lets the shooter work with the confidence that comes with knowing that their footage will make it home safe, sound and in sync.”
 
Pricing & Availability
 
BulletProof 1.2 beta will be available soon, with a release in Q2 for $199. It is a free upgrade for existing users of BulletProof 1.0.

Canon EOS C500 Cinema Camera
MELVILLE, N.Y., April 2, 2014 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, shared today that its parent company, Canon Inc., announced a software upgrade for the EOS C500 digital cinema camera (launched in October 2012), part of Canon’s Cinema EOS System lineup of professional digital cinematography products, that will enable users to more efficiently on-set production workflows. The Company plans to offer the free-of-charge Cinema RAW Development software upgrade* starting in October 2014.
 
The new Cinema RAW Development 1.3 software, currently under development, will deliver enhanced shooting workflows, including the on-set playback and confirmation of 4K RAW video, when using the EOS C500 camera.
 
Through collaboration with Intel, Cinema RAW Development 1.3 will deliver improved performance using a beta version of the Intel Media SDK 2014 Professional Camera Pack, making possible faster development of 4K Cinema RAW data when using a PC equipped with Intel Iris Pro graphics. Canon’s software upgrade will support greater workflow efficiencies for 4K RAW data by enabling real-time playback with playback speeds of up to 24 frames per second (fps). To date, previewing 4K RAW video footage on a notebook PC and other compact computer devices had been difficult because of the slow fps rate and the need for tremendous processing power, which was only available with a workstation PC. Now, with a combination of upgrades to Canon’s Cinema RAW Development 1.3 software, compatible with the Intel Media SDK 2014 Professional Camera Pack, and a PC with Intel Iris Pro graphics, Canon users will be able to more quickly preview their 4K video footage while on a shoot.
