Firmware 5.15 Corrects Data Table Issue in 5.10
 
"We recently released the latest official ControlTL firmware, version 5.10. Based on continued internal testing and feedback from users, it appears that a couple of the exposure and timing data tables became corrupted somewhere in the process. We’ve had reports of improper exposures with several camera models as well as shutter clipping with the 1Ds Mark III and 1D Mark IV. We have corrected the tables and the revised firmware is available as version 5.15 and can be downloaded via the PocketWizard Utility now.
 
We recommend upgrading to 5.15 as soon as you can.
 
The manual addendum for v5.10 is still the same for v5.15."

ISO 12233 Resolution Chart and Lens Specifications and Measurements Tools have been added to the Nikon 200-400mm f/4G AF-S VR II Lens Review page.
 
I have to admit - I was not expecting much difference in sharpness between this lens and the version 1 Nikon 200-400mm f/4G AF-S VR Lens. But, I'm very pleased with the improvement at 400mm. This difference is confirmed in the with-extender tests. When shooting sports, I often had the version 1 lens at 400mm and was not excited about the results I was getting, so this improvement is very welcomed. Canon needs one of these.

As I mentioned yesterday on the site news page, the root cause of the community site being down was a mandatory site migration to the webhost's new datacenter (performed by the host). After 12 hours of being down with no solution in sight, I made the decision to relocate the site to RackSpace along with the main site. The hosting costs more, but will hopefully be more bulletproof.
 
The incompetencies shown by the web host in this site migration are simply beyond my comprehension. These include, along with giving me no notice of the actual cutover and among many other things, the restoring of a 3 week old database (so much for daily backups). And they thought no one would notice?
 
Fortunately I had a personal backup. Unfortunately, my latest backup was from early evening on Aug 6th. I strongly apologize for the inconvenience of the lost information - please restart/complete the threads that were important to you. Thanks!

Since the RSS news feed is currently down, I am going to push a planned implementation of new RSS news feeds ahead of schedule. I intend to 301-Redirect (automatically forward) the previous feed (when its functionality is restored) to these new feeds, but changing your news reader now will restore the site's RSS news functionality immediately.
 
The available feeds are:
 
Canon, Nikon News, What's New (all posted news) Follow The-Digital-Picture.com on Twitter Follow on Facebook 
Canon News, What's New (Nikon-related news filtered out) Follow Canon_News on Twitter 
Nikon News, What's New (Canon-related news filtered out) Follow Nikon_News on Twitter 
 
Simply click on the link of the feed you desire to get the subscription address/URL. For my Nikon friends, Nikon news will be ramping up. If you have no interest in Nikon-related posts, simply subscribe to the Canon-specific feed - and vice-versa.
 
Facebook and Twitter offer alternatives for keeping up on the news.
 
Please pass the word about this change.

The Nikon-specific posts will be ramping up in the future.

The Community.The-Digital-Picture.com subdomain (the forums and RSS news feed) is currently down. The root cause of the problem is a mandatory site migration to WebHost4Life's new datacenter (performed by WebHost4Life). An issue with the IP address and DNS are thought to be at the root of the problem.
 
I apologize for the inconvenience and will make resolution of the problem a top priority.
