From Canon Professional Network:

"Modern action movies are generally packed with computer-generated imagery (CGI), resulting in production budgets that have soared into the stratosphere. But when director Scott Waugh enlisted Shane Hurlbut as Director of Photography on the movie spin-off from the ‘Need For Speed’ game franchise he wanted to buck the trend and shoot the action as close to live as possible, which called for a special camera. CPN writer James Morris spoke to Shane Hurlbut to discover how and why Canon’s EOS C500 Digital Cinema Camera satisfied all the important requirements for shooting live action at 150 miles per hour."

PocketWizard Multimax Transceiver
From PocketWizard:
 
South Burlington, VT - July 17, 2014 - The PocketWizard MultiMAX, our venerable flagship radio product, is being retired effective immediately.
 
The MultiMAX was born in early 2001 and is just a little older than Windows XP. One of the first digital transceivers in the photo industry, the MultiMAX became the professional choice for over a dozen basketball seasons, seven Olympics, and countless portraits and weddings. Its special mix of technology enabled it to survive the industry’s transition from film to digital. Some of its features, like Custom IDs, True Trigger Confirmation, and Equalization, have never been duplicated. Certainly, the MultiMAX has earned its place in the history of photography.
 
Today, key parts are no longer being manufactured. Case in point is the LCD which was based on an early flip phone (the Motorola StarTac of the late 1990’s). So, regrettably, we can no longer market the MultiMAX.
 
Fortunately, the PocketWizard Plus III radio carries on the primary features of the MultiMAX, like 32 channels, Quad-Zone Triggering, Long Range Mode, and Auto-Relay and is fully compatible with the MultiMAX and the entire PocketWizard line.
 
Stock:
Final orders have shipped. Check with your dealer or distributor for retail availability.
 
Warranty Repairs:
PocketWizard will honor warranties and perform customer repairs for the next few years. If warranty repairs are unable to be performed due to parts depletion, we will make reasonable efforts to help photographers maintain PocketWizard compatibility by offering alternative product at a special value.
 
Custom IDs:
The Custom ID service for the MultiMAX will remain available for MultiMAX owners. We will investigate the possibility of implementing Custom IDs in the Plus III or a future radio.
 
Special Accessories:
All PocketWizard remote camera and flash cables will remain in the product line. MultiMAX specific accessories like PW-CC (Confirmation Cable) and PW-AC-MX (AC Adapter for older 6-pin radios) will no longer be produced, but may still be available at retailers.
 
If you have a moment, please share your MultiMAX stories on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pocketwizards

Canon Digital Learning Center
The Canon Digital Learning Center has published a lengthy Quick Tips page for Underwater Photography.

"With its richly colored landscapes and fascinating sea creatures, there are few places more beautiful to photograph than the underwater world. Whether you’re scuba diving among sharks or snorkeling along a reef, the photographic possibilities are endless and intriguing.
 
Of course, underwater photography can be a little intimidating since it presents unique photographic challenges. But you’ll get immediate feedback with your digital SLR, so you can make adjustments when necessary and it won’t be long before you’ll be showing off images of your underwater adventures to fellow divers, snorkelers and land-locked shutterbugs. To help you gear up and grab those once-in-a lifetime shots, here are some guidelines and tips to get you started."

Check out the Underwater Photography Tips on CDLC for a tidal wave of information. :-)

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens
The site's first tested Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens was provided by Sigma. That Sigma could have handpicked a superior lens was questioned, so I picked up a retail copy of this lens to verify the image quality this lens model delivers.
 
The image quality results from the second lens are now included in the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Review. The first link loads a comparison between the two lenses with the new lens shown on the left (sample "1"). I would say that the second lens is even slightly sharper than the already-impressive first lens. AF consistency for the second lens is the same as the first.
 
Image quality test results from the EOS 60D are also now included for this lens.

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.
