Datacolor Spydercheckr 24 Color Calibration Target
From Datacolor:
 
Affordable, portable target offers photo and video professionals an on-the-go solution for color control
 
Lawrenceville, NJ – August 5, 2014 – Datacolor, a global leader in color management solutions, today announced Spydercheckr 24, a new addition to the Spydercheckr product line, which includes the flagship 48 patch Spydercheckr. Spydercheckr 24 is a precise and versatile camera color calibration and white balance target for photo and video color control for on-the-go professional photographers and videographers. Portable and affordable, Spydercheckr 24 is designed to color manage camera and scene for both still and motion imaging workflows.
 
Spectrally engineered with 24 pigment patches, Spydercheckr 24 offers the accuracy of a full size, large patch photo target in a thin, compact design. Spydercheckr 24’s gray face provides in-camera and post-process white balance and exposure adjustment, while the color face allows users to color correct capture automatically in Adobe Photoshop ACR, Adobe Lightroom, Hasselblad Phocus, and Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve.
 

 
“The biggest advantage of the system is that camera calibration is not limited to RAW files but can also be applied to JPEGs and video too,” said Lee Varis, professional photographer and digital imaging artist. “For imaging professionals who shoot a combination of still and motion, especially site photography and videography, Spydercheckr is a game changer.”
 
The Spydercheckr 24 is available immediately for $49.00 USD at photo and video retailers.
 
B&H has the Datacolor Spydercheckr 24 available for preorder.

Bummed that Apple has decided to cease Aperture support? Want to migrate to Lightroom? Adobe has you covered with a free informative guide.
 
From Making the Switch from Aperture to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom:

"At Adobe, we’re working on a migration tool to help you bring your photos into Adobe Photoshop Lightroom from Aperture, but if you’re eager to switch before the tool is ready, this guide can help ease your transition. We recognize that this migration may be a challenging process and offer the following resources and methodology to help get you up to speed with Lightroom and provide a road map for successfully migrating your photos.
 
The first challenge is that the terminology, layout, and controls of the two applications are different. It’s a good idea to start processing photos in Lightroom and become familiar with it before you migrate your photos from Aperture. You can do so by taking some new photos, importing them into Lightroom, and then using Lightroom.
 
Here are some resources to get you started with Lightroom:

We are providing a workaround solution for the second challenge of switching: Aperture and Lightroom use different image-processing engines, which means that Lightroom cannot read adjustments made in Aperture. For any photos you have edited in Aperture, you should transfer the original plus a .tiff file with adjustments applied. Then, in Lightroom, you can organize the original and the .tiff file so that they appear alongside each other.
 
In addition, Lightroom cannot read Aperture color labels, flags, or custom metadata fields. So, before you export your originals, use Smart Albums or the search filter to find images by those attributes, and apply corresponding keywords (for example, Color-red, Flagged, or Meta-ModelRelease-Yes).The steps that follow provide a generalized method for migrating your photos from Aperture to Lightroom. Please keep in mind that this guide outlines a basic workflow: you may need to tailor the steps to fit your particular setup."

Canon PIXMA PRO-100 Professional Inkjet Printer
From Canon:
 
TOKYO, August 4, 2014—Canon Inc. announced today the start of a new program launched in cooperation with paper manufacturers and paper sellers that provides users with an expanded selection of specialty print media compatible with the Canon PIXMA PRO (PIXUS PRO in Japan) series of inkjet printers. The program allows professional and advanced-amateur users of PIXMA PRO printers to choose the ideal paper according to their personal preferences and print project demands.

Canon PIXMA PRO Partner mark

The new Canon initiative gives users access to inkjet print media that satisfies standards for the popular Canon A3+/13”-wide PIXMA PRO printer lineup: the PIXMA PRO-1, PIXMA PRO-10 and PIXMA PRO-100. Print media that meets these criteria will display the PIXMA PRO Partner mark.
 
Users will be able to purchase paper carrying the PIXMA PRO Partner mark with peace of mind, knowing that the product has been tested for use with the PIXMA PRO printer series. Accordingly, users will have an enhanced printing experience as they will not only be able to use Genuine Canon Paper, but also select from a variety of art and specialty print media according to individual print needs. To ensure optimal print results, the ICC profiles for paper offered through this initiative by other companies can be obtained on paper manufacturer and seller websites and elsewhere.
 
By combining Genuine Canon Paper along with paper from other companies that satisfies Canon standards, Canon provides users with an extensive selection of specialty print media to meet the diverse print needs of professional and advanced-amateur users.
 
B&H carries Canon PIXMA PRO inkjet printers.

Canon India Something BIG Reveal
On Wednesday we were intrigued by a post made on Canon India's Facebook Page. The post teased, "Get your camera ready, something BIG is coming."
 
Today we found out what Canon India was referring to – a large photography competition.
 
Exciting as it may be for some, I'm afraid the news will be a bit anticlimactic for most...

From B&H's YouTube Channel:
 
Join landscape photographer and Canson Infinity ambassador Robert Rodriguez Jr as he shares advanced workflows in the Lightroom 5 Develop module.
 
Creatively developing images in Lightroom is more than just optimizing tonalities and color, it entails careful interpretation of the raw file to effectively convey the essence of the image. Selective detail, subtle use of color, and local adjustments are some of the things Robert demonstrates using the tools in the develop module. He also explain why these adjustments are important and how they can contribute to better images. This is not about pre-sets, but rather being open to your personal creative vision.
 
B&H carries Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.
