From Savage Universal:
 
The photography equipment manufacturer marks its nineteenth presence at the convention with an array of new product demonstrations for LED lighting, paper backgrounds and support systems
 
CHANDLER, AZ – MAY 18, 2016 – Savage Universal, the worldwide leader in backgrounds and photographic products, is pleased to announce that it will be returning to Photokina for the company’s nineteenth time as an exhibitor. Photokina is the world’s largest trade fair for the photographic and imaging industries and has been held in Cologne, Germany biennially since 1950.
 
Savage Universal will be showcasing popular studio photography backgrounds like seamless paper, collapsible backdrops, and Translum, as well as new, innovative studio equipment like LED light interview & portrait kits, auto-extending light stands and macro photography tools. The manufacturer has focused product development efforts over recent years towards expanding in the lighting and equipment spectrum, introducing items new to the market and exclusive to the brand to secure its position as the professional’s choice in studio gear.
 
Essential for every photography studio is proper lighting, and Savage welcomes attendees to demo the Cobra LED Light Kit at its exhibition this year. Three included 204 high-efficiency “chip on board” LED lights with an ultra-thin, lightweight design attach to the new patented Drop Stands, along with an exclusive flex arm and counterweight system. Color temperature can be adjusted anywhere from 3200K to 5600K and provides an extra-long 3 hour run time when used with included high-capacity Sony battery. Also on display this year will be the new Luminous Pro LED Shooting Tent. With LED light strips running from front to back, this shadowless light source is designed to bring out the true colors of any tabletop product being showcased.
 
Diving into the world of macro photography, new Macro ART Variable Auto-Extension Tubes will be featured with a special, flexible Dual Arm LED Light, designed for even lighting of macro subjects to capture fine detail at close range. The extension tubes are exclusive accessories for DSLR macro photography that combine the three most common automatic extension tubes into one integrated range.
 
Background stands and light stands are also among the focus this year. The new Savage Drop Stand is the most convenient and speedy light stand on the market. Its gravity-collapsible and expandable legs allow for easy repositioning of lighting when moving between groups and in tight spaces, with air-cushioned durable aluminum components. In addition, the new Universal Background Stand is comprised of 3 upright stands with a unique middle bracket to allow for a corner setup with two backdrops or 7.3m extra-wide productions.
 
Having recently extended its line of popular paper backgrounds in 2015, Savage is proud to present Printed Background Paper at Photokina for the first time. Printed with state-of-the-art high definition printers, realistic backgrounds that photograph beautifully are produced in patterns like wood, brick and bokeh in a convenient 1.34m x 5.5m size.
 
“We are proud to commemorate our history in the worldwide photographic industry with each Photokina experience and look forward to being a part of the world’s largest photo conference once again this year,” said President Syl Hank.

May 17, 2016. London, UK. – Anthropics Technology today announced the launch of LandscapePro, the industry’s first intelligent landscape photo editing software, available in standalone and Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Elements plug-in editions. The new software radically simplifies and speeds up outdoor and nature photo retouching. It includes landscape relighting, sky replacement, 3D depth estimation, a depth of field simulator, distance controls, intelligent selection tools, and photo-adaptive controls among other powerful features. With one-click presets and targeted editing available, users can create beautiful landscapes in seconds.
 
LandscapePro is a new way to enhance pictures that rises to the challenges and nuances of landscape photography. It assumes no prior knowledge or technical skills, and photographers can create unique, dramatic effects quickly. The new product comes from the makers of the award-winning retouching software PortraitPro and PortraitPro Studio with a plug-in mode for Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and Apple Aperture.
 
“Inspired by the success of Anthropics’s PortraitPro software, we are delighted to introduce a new product to help photographers expand their creativity and take landscape retouching to the next level,” said Andrew Berend, CEO, Anthropics. “LandscapePro offers an innovative and easy way to create stunning landscape photography, and can be used by novices or experienced photographers alike. As its intelligent controls uniquely adapt to the features of each photo, it enables photographers to do incredible things with their outdoor photos simply by using sliders.”

  • Landscape relighting. Lighting adjustment to fit any creative goals: change light source, temperature, time of day, or go from dawn to sunset. Note how the side lighting brings out the texture on the ground.
  • Instant sky replacement with presets. The unique sky controls enable photographers to replace sky, change clouds, or cast cloud shadows. Note how the change in sky has automatically relit the ground.
  • Cloud and atmosphere adjustment. Tools to manipulate skies by separately adjusting the clouds and the atmosphere behind them.
  • 3D depth estimation. A unique, easy-to-use depth of field simulator respects 3D objects in the scene. As easy as using a single slider.

To be perfectly frank, I wasn't terribly impressed with the side-cancelling sound of the MKE 440 in B&H's traffic demonstration. However, the indoor demonstration was a different story. When comparing the MKE 440 to a traditional "single barreled camera-mounted stereo shotgun mic," the difference in sound quality was definitely noticeable. The MKE 440 produced a better voice recording while allowing for a decent, pleasing balance with ambient sound. [Sean]
 
From the B&H YouTube channel:
 
We're taking a look and a listen to the Sennheiser MKE 440 camera-mounted directional stereo shotgun microphone. Designed to focus the stereo field on what's actually in the camera lens, we put it to use recording speech in the B&H Superstore and a musical performance in a traffic island on Manhattan's glorious West Side Highway.
 
B&H has the Sennheiser MKE 440 Shotgun Microphone available for preorder.

From Canon USA:
 
Canon U.S.A. supports future generations of women in the community with educational event
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., May 17, 2016 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today hosted Girls Inc., a nonprofit organization that focuses on giving confidence to girls, for “A Day at Canon” at the Company’s corporate headquarters in Melville, NY.
 
“We are so grateful to Canon USA, Inc. for putting together this truly inspirational event for our girls” said Neela Lockel, executive director for Girls Inc. of Long Island. “The team prepared a wonderful day that left the girls excited and thinking about their own futures.”
 
Approximately 30 young women ages 15-18 across Long Island attended this all-day event specially designed to bring young girls together. They were presented with opportunities to learn about Canon, be inspired by women in the workforce today and visualize their personal future career paths, perhaps one day in the technology sector with Canon.
 
“Canon follows a Kyosei philosophy, which means, all people, regardless of race, religion, or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future”, said Christine Sedlacek, senior director of Digital Marketing Services Division, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We are excited to have the opportunity to positively impact these young women and share our Kyosei philosophy in a tangible way within the local community.”
 
Girls Inc. guests were greeted with a Continental breakfast and received tours of the corporate showroom, showcasing some of Canon’s top product lines, such as Cinema EOS and Mixed Reality. Influential female employees of Canon U.S.A. across the IT, Product Marketing, Social Media, Legal and Finance departments met with the girls to educate them on their journey in the workforce and their experience with Canon U.S.A.
 
The young women of Girls Inc. participated in a series of workshops focusing on budgeting and career planning to give them tools to positively impact their career path. They also completed their own personal journey timelines outlining how far they have come to get where they are today. To close out the day, the girls printed out their journey timelines to bring home and leave by their workspace or pin to an inspiration board as an encouraging reminder.
