FreeFly MoVI's biggest competitor, the DJI Ronin, is set to be available beginning next month. DJI's stabilizer seems to equal FreeFly's in every way except for price – the Ronin can be preordered for only $2,999.00 (compared to $4,995.00 for the MoVI).
 
Only time will tell if the DJI Ronin is as good as the ground-breaking MoVI; the lower price will certainly make the Ronin very alluring for a lot of filmmakers.

Mosquito Bites Black Bear Cub
See the mosquito on this black bear cub's ear? The black bear is at the top of the food chain in Pennsylvania, but that does not mean they don't get bit. Getting bit is certainly going to be on the back of everyone's mind when photographing a bear cub this small as the highly protective mother is guaranteed to be nearby.
 
A mother bear nearby makes the zoom capabilities of the Canon EF 200-400 f/5.6 L IS Lens highly desirable. To capture this picture of a tiny cub required use of the built-in extender for 560mm of focal length (plus a small amount of cropping). To capture a full body portrait of the much larger mother (with or without cubs in the frame) required a wider focal length. Bears are very unpredictable and may not have tolerated (or stayed long enough for) a lens change. The 200-400 L lets me work fast, capturing the ideal framing potential from the situation.
 
This was a very productive bear session (and not the same as the recently shared bear picture was captured during). I'll try to share a few more shots from this encounter with you soon.

At an hour and forty minutes long, this isn't exactly "light viewing." However, this video may prove useful if playing in the background while you're completing other tasks. If you overhear a tip you're interested in, you can always focus your full attention on the video at that time. At least, that's how I usually enjoy these videos... [Sean]

Is trying to master certain aspects of Photoshop making you pull your hair out in frustration? The Event Space and expert Andy Graber are here to help. We tried something new with this class: We asked YOU to help us design the curriculum by interacting with us on social media. What aspects of Photoshop are you having trouble with? What is it you need to learn about? In advance of the class, we chose a selection of your questions and built this workshop around them.
