United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 21 June 2016 – Canon UK, a leader in imaging solutions, today marks the company’s 40th anniversary with a birthday celebration for all 2,000 employees who will also receive an extra day off to celebrate their own birthdays.
 
Canon Business Machines was established in the UK on 21st June 1976 when the key focus was on sales of calculators, micrographic equipment and photocopiers for the business market. In 1982, Canon merged with a separate camera sales operation to create Canon UK, as it is now known, growing to become a leader of digital imaging solutions for office and home environments.
 
Dave Newell, a long-serving Canon employee who joined the company in 1982 said: “It’s brilliant to work at a company like Canon. There is a great atmosphere and staff are treated as valued members of the team, rather than just cogs in a wheel. When asked why I have chosen to stay at one company for so long, I have to say that it’s not the same company – the business continually transforms in really exciting ways to support the changing needs of our customers.”
 
When Canon first came to the UK it operated from a house in Croydon but now has offices across the country including the award winning head office in Reigate (Surrey) as well as London, Birmingham, Livingston (Scotland) and Belfast where today’s anniversary will be celebrated.
 
Throughout the period, Canon has continued to evolve and enhance its broad offering to create exciting technologies that continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in the world of imaging, including developments in broadcast, production print, photography and office solutions.
 
When Canon UK was established the latest product was the “AE-1”, the world’s first 35mm AE SLR equipped with a central processing unit (CPU) and seen as a pioneer of automated and computerised cameras. With its strong ongoing investments in R&D, Canon remains a creator of ground breaking new technologies, such as a 250-megapixel CMOS sensor, the world’s highest pixel count for its size.
 
Canon’s ongoing passion for the power of image has extended and grown into new markets such as 3D print and Network Video Solutions ensuring that the demands of customers are met today and into the future.

According to a study published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, approximately 80% of those in North America live in ares where the Milky Way is no longer visible.
 
From ScienceAdvances.com:
We found that about 83% of the world’s population and more than 99% of the U.S. and European populations live under light-polluted skies (that is, where artificial sky brightness at the zenith is >14 µcd/m2). Due to light pollution, the Milky Way is not visible to more than one-third of humanity, including 60% of Europeans and nearly 80% of North Americans. Moreover, 23% of the world’s land surfaces between 75°N and 60°S, 88% of Europe, and almost half of the United States experience light-polluted nights.
 
The countries with the populations least affected by light pollution are Chad, Central African Republic, and Madagascar, with more than three-quarters of their inhabitants living under pristine sky conditions. The countries and territories with the largest nonpolluted areas are Greenland (only 0.12% of its area does not have pristine skies), Central African Republic (0.29%), Niue (0.45%), Somalia (1.2%), and Mauritania (1.4%).
 
On the other side, the most light-polluted country is Singapore, where the entire population lives under skies so bright that the eye cannot fully dark-adapt to night vision. Other populations experiencing this level of light pollution are Kuwait (98%), Qatar (97%), United Arab Emirates (93%), Saudi Arabia (83%), South Korea (66%), Israel (61%), Argentina (58%), Libya (53%), and Trinidad and Tobago (50%); all of these countries have more than half of their inhabitants living under extremely bright skies.

From Cokin:
 
The dark side has never been so attractive.
 
Hampstead, MD — June 14, 2016 — Only a few months after having introduced NUANCES Full ND filters – the best Neutral Density filters available, Cokin is proud to announce NUANCES Graduated Neutral Density (GND) filters.
 
Cokin states that their biggest challenge has been to adapt their coating technology to make it graduated. A nano-metallic alloy is gradually applied on both sides of a highly resistant tempered Schott Glass B270, renowned for its high transmittance and low reflection. The result is stunning neutrality, completely free of infrared pollution. Multiple NUANCES filters (GND or Full) can be stacked without color cast.
 
NUANCES GND filters are dedicated to landscape photography. When the dynamic range of film or the sensor is too narrow, they allow a balanced brightness between two parts of an image by efficiently keeping details in overly-bright part of a scene. GND filters effect cannot be reproduced in post-processing, where clipping is hard to recover. The transition between the dark and light areas is soft, making it easier to use in most situations.
 
NUANCES GND filters are designed to fit Cokin’s range of CREATIVE filter-holders, from M to XL sizes. They can be combined with other filters from the CREATIVE Filter System range for unlimited creativity. L and XL sizes to begin shipping in late June with M sizes to ship in late July.
 
B&H carries the Cokin NUANCES line of ND filters.

Image quality results from the Canon EOS 5Ds R and Canon EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM Lens Review.
 
The 14 L II was Canon's widest rectilinear lens until the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens came along. Interesting comparison: Canon EF 14mm L II vs. 11-24mm L at 14mm f/4.
 
What other 14 L II comparisons do you like?
