Hoya EVO Antistatic Filter
From THK:
 
JULY 22, 2014 – Huntington Beach, CA. - (July 22, 2014) - Kenko Tokina USA, Inc. is proud to introduce the new Hoya EVO ANTISTATIC series of professional photographic filters.
 
Hoya engineers have developed a new ANTISTATIC coating that acts like a force field around the filter to repel dust. Perfect for environments where dust is common, these filters require less frequent cleaning and maintenance than traditional filters. Additionally, the hardened, antistatic top-layer is water repellent, stain and scratch resistant, and cleans easily when smudges or fingerprints are introduced to the surface.
 
The new EVO ANTISTATIC professional filters are made in Japan using hand selected silicates that are carefully smelted and blended to yield high performance optical glass. Hoya then uses extreme care and precision to apply the Improved 16-layer Super Multi-coating formula which greatly reduces or eliminates reflections on the surface of the glass and yields a 99.8% light transmission rate. This means the filter has virtually no effect on the color balance, contrast, or clarity of the final image.
 
The filters in the new EVO ANTISTATIC series* utilize a lightweight, one-piece, low-profile aluminum frame to house the glass. This one-piece design allows the filter to maintain perfect parallel alignment to the sensor plane for maximum sharpness, while the low-profile frame eliminates vignetting when used on ultra-wide-angle lenses.
 
The new EVO ANTISTATIC series of filters consist of a Protector, UV, and Circular Polarizer in common sizes ranging from 37mm to 82mm.
 
Hoya EVO ANTISTATIC filters were developed in conjunction with Kenko Tokina USA, Inc. and intended solely for the USA distribution.

The EVO ANTISTATIC filter will be available in mid-August.

This is an older video that slipped under my radar late last year. But it begs the question – what would you do with 50 EOS 1D X DSLR cameras?
 
From Canon Suisse:
 
With the support of Canon Switzerland, the Swiss Radio and TV SRF produced two elaborate Bullet Time Shots for the programme "Sommer-Challenge". 50 Canon EOS-1D X cameras were used in one indoor and one outdoor shooting.

Canon Professional Network Logo
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
