"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending June 22nd, 2013
 
In the news...
 
On Monday, Canon announced a service notice for its 1D X and 1D C DSLR cameras. Canon warns that insufficient lubrication within the cameras’ drive mechanism may lead to its inability to autofocus correctly. Check out the service notice to see if your camera is affected and steps for resolving the issue.
 
Also on Monday, Adobe announced a major update to Creative Cloud. Among other things, the update added new features to Photoshop CC like Camera Shake Reduction and an all-new Smart Sharpen tool. Adobe Creative Cloud is available now through Adobe and authorized retailers.
 
On Wednesday, Spider Holster announced the newest addition to its product lineup – the Large Lens Pouch. The pouch features a built-in solution for tethering a rear lens cap, a removable pouch lid, and the ability to add additional accessories through the Spider Holster clip system.
 
On Thursday, Nikon released an apology regarding “Image Space” account issues. Apparently, a technical glitch led to 43 user accounts being accessible by two people – the original user and one additional person. To remedy the situation, Nikon says they have fixed the technical glitch and emailed affected users with a personal apology and directions on how to proceed with their accounts.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Tuesday, we posted a deal from DigitalRev where you could get a Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens for $369.00. That’s a $280.00 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!"

From Canon Professional Network:

"With the advent of video capture on DSLR cameras the craft of cinematography has moved within the reach of many of those who previously just thought in terms of stills. Carey Duffy (Technical Director of filter company Tiffen in the UK) writes for CPN on what to look for when selecting the right filters for photography and filmmaking..."

The full article covers the basics of neutral density filters (solid, graduated and variable), circular polarizing filters, and low-contrast filters for use in HDSLR video.

From National Geographic:

"Over the past year, Anna Possberg and her husband, Claus Possberg, have traveled four times to the Scandinavian Arctic to photograph the [auroras] phenomena, which appear as stunning light shows in many northern countries, especially during dark winters.
 
Claus is a radiologist who’s also an avid traveler and photographer, and Anna is a full-time professional filmmaker. The Arctic Lightscape project, which the couple funds independently, resulted in a time-lapse video: a series of still photographs stitched together into a video format and published on Vimeo last week."

The full article illustrates some of the challenges faced by the Possbergs and how they overcame obstacles such as freezing temperatures, less-than-ideal weather, and finding shelter.

Keith Sutton's career as a freelance motorsport photographer took off when a young Ayrton Senna approached him and employed his services as he swiftly climbed the motorsport ladder in Britain during the early 1980s. Afterwards, Keith went on to form Sutton Photographic in 1985 with his younger brother Mark. The company aimed to cover every Formula One Grand Prix, in addition to other motorsport races around the world.
 
Today, Sutton Photographic has evolved into Sutton Images, and the company continues to go from strength to strength. Based in state-of-the-art offices in Towcester, near Silverstone, Keith and Mark, along with their staff and a team of agents worldwide, continue to cover the best motorsport the world has to offer.
