Your Support Is Necessary
Many of you know this, but it takes an incredible amount of time (and money) to keep this site running (Monday was an 18 hour day for me, I'll log about 14 hours today (Tuesday)). Even with Sean and Doug working full time, I typically spend 60 - 80 hours a week working on this site which of course leaves no extra time for other income-producing work to feed the kids. My family (Sean and Doug's also) relies completely on this site and those supporting it for our financial needs. I humbly request your support by making your purchases at Adorama through the links provided on this site. I give you a hearty "Thanks!" for supporting us and I promise to continue bringing you the best camera and gear information I am able to deliver.
Go visit Adorama.
"It has been almost 3 years since I released The Unseen Sea and I'm excited and proud to share with you my latest project Adrift.
Adrift is a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area. I chased it for over two years to capture the magical interaction between the soft mist, the ridges of the California coast and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. This is where “Adrift” was born.
The weather conditions have to be just right for the fog to glide over the hills and under the bridge. I developed a system for trying to guess when to make the drive out to shoot, which involved checking the weather forecast, satellite images and webcams multiple times a day. For about 2 years, if the weather looked promising, I would set my alarm to 5am, recheck the webcams, and then set off on the 45-minute drive to the Marin Headlands.
I spent many mornings hiking in the dark to only find that the fog was too high, too low, or already gone by the time I got there. Luckily, once in a while the conditions would be perfect and I was able to capture something really special. Adrift is a collection of my favorite shots from these excursions into the ridges of the Marin Headlands.
I hope with my short film I am able to convey the feeling of happiness I felt while I experienced those stunning scenes."

My understanding is that the "limited compatibility" lenses will be able to autofocus in Live View using the more-conventional contrast detection method, but they will not support the new Dual Pixel AF. The reason is likely due to a lack of capability in the lens' CPU.
"The EOS 70D digital SLR camera is ideal for anyone looking to take more control of the photographic process for satisfying creative results. Replacing the popular EOS 60D and sitting above the EOS 700D, the EOS 70D is the first DSLR camera in the world to feature all-new Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, and combines powerful creative features with wireless sharing functionality for a highly responsive, all-purpose camera."

"Thank you to all of our Canon fans in helping us reach a new milestone of 1 million video views on our channel (and counting)! We could not have accomplished this without your help and support. As a thank you, we've created this short video including clips of our products, tutorials, movies, explorers of light and much more! We hope you enjoy!"
In March, Canon celebrated 1 million minutes watched on its YouTube channel.

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending June 29th, 2013
In the news...
On Wednesday, Canon released a significant firmware update for the EOS M mirrorless camera. Announced at the beginning of June, the updated firmware significantly increases autofocus performance in One-Shot mode. If you have an EOS M camera, installing the firmware update is highly recommended.
On Friday, we reported the availability of Manfrotto’s new Acra-Swiss compatible quick-release mounts and plates. As Bryan noted in the announcement, “Manfrotto makes great gear and gives you a lot for your money. I found the lack of Arca-Swiss compatibility to be a drawback. That drawback has now been erased.”
On Saturday, we reported on Carl Zeiss’s rebranding announcement. Joining the likes of Madonna and Bono, “Carl Zeiss” lenses will now be known by the single word – “ZEISS.” The company decided to drop “Carl” from their lens branding because of the strength and global recognition of the ZEISS name and to create greater consistency among its product markets.
In site news and reviews…
On Monday, Bryan posted his full review of the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4 L IS USM Extender 1.4x lens. The best word to describe the lens – impressive. In versatility, image quality, and investment required. Check out Bryan’s full review for all the details.
On Thursday, Bryan posted his full review of the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. In short, the lens is a significant upgrade to its predecessor. Canon’s new kit lens features an improved AF motor, better manual focusing ring, and a front element that doesn’t rotate with focusing. The lens is an especially good value when purchased in a camera kit.
And, for our deal of the week…
On Tuesday, we posted a deal from DigitalRev where you could get a Sekonic Lightmaster Pro L-478DR Touch-Screen Light Meter for $359.00. That’s more than a 23% savings off the normal retail price.
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
