Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens
Just posted: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens Review.
 
The 50mm f/1.8 STM is not a perfect lens, but it is nearly Canon's smallest and lightest lens. And that it is Canon' least expensive lens we can all appreciate.
 
B&H has the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens in stock.

IBC 2015 Logo
From Canon UK:
 
LONDON, 13 July 2015 – Canon Europe will be demonstrating its end-to-end professional 4K workflow at IBC2015, the leading global tradeshow for media and broadcast professionals in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Canon, having exhibited at IBC for more than three decades, will showcase its first-class 4K range in its entirety for the first time in Europe – with 4K lenses, sensors and reference displays, all on show to demonstrate the company’s advanced glass-to-glass 4K workflow.
 
The Canon stand will include dedicated areas for live capture, providing visitors with the opportunity to get hands on with Canon’s 4K and Full HD product range through a series of shooting scenarios, review and editing processes. A variety of live demonstrations including cinema shooting and documentary shooting will also be available to visitors.
 
Canon’s Cinema EOS range has transformed the professional video industry since its introduction in 2011, with leading sensor technology, lens heritage and innovative product updates. In April 2015, the range expanded with the introduction of the next generation of 4K imaging devices, including the EOS C300 Mark II, a 4K video camera, and the DP-V2410, a lightweight and robust 24” 4K reference display. Both will be on display in Europe for the first time at IBC.
 
“As the industry realises the benefits of 4K within a professional workflow, Canon has been developing our product range to meet the needs of our professional imaging customers,” said Kieran Magee, Marketing Director, Canon Europe. “Canon recognises that demand for higher quality production is going to grow. This year at IBC Canon will be displaying the full set of tools needed for this next step forward in versatile 4K content production.”
 
At the show, broadcast and cinematography professionals will be able to get hands-on with Canon’s full range of 4K and Full HD products including the recently launched XC10 and the EOS C300 Mark II cameras, as well as having the opportunity to experience the full power of its optics portfolio. Industry professionals will also be able to experience the full power of the company’s optics portfolio with the opportunity to touch and try Canon’s extensive range of lenses, from broadcast to cinema and EF lenses.
 
Canon’s IBC stand can be found at Hall 11, stand E50.

The Canon 7D Mark II and 100-400 L II Capture a Willet Standing on One Foot
Under a cloudy sky, the lighting was right at any subject angle and throughout much of this day at Blind Pass in Captiva, Florida. This giant softbox-like lighting permitted me to maneuver to the ideal angle for this subject (from the side) and the NatureScapes Skimmer Ground Pod II allowed me to comfortably work from right on the sand.
 
This low perspective caused the background content to be farther away. That distance, combined with a long focal length and close primary subject, meant that the background became significantly blurred. When it becomes a blur, the background's color and shapes become the primary concern.
 
In this case, the ocean was my background. The wave patterns, including breaking waves, supply the gently-changing color and shapes.
 
When the ocean is in your frame, shutter release timing often matters as the ocean is constantly changing. A wide variety of waves shapes worked well for this situation, but my final selection included not only the willet with ideal head and body angle, but also with most breaking waves (white color and shape) avoiding the bird's outline.
 
As I've said before, the Canon EOS 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II Lens make a great birding combo.
 
The Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II Lens was released many months ago, but has been out of stock for most of that timeframe. B&H has this lens in stock at this moment.

San Francisco Gallery Created Using the Epson SureColor P600 and P800 Wide-Format Printers
 
July 09, 2015 – Epson today announced it has partnered with DJI, the market leader in easy-to-fly drones and aerial photography systems, to create photographic prints for the upcoming “Perspectives by SkyPixel” gallery. Leveraging the exhibition-quality prints of the Epson SureColor P600 13-inch and P800 17-inch printers and Epson Signature Worthy Exhibition Canvas Natural Gloss media, the upcoming gallery features photos and stories from the SkyPixel community, a platform dedicated to the art of aerial photography. The exhibit will run from July 11-19 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the La Boutique, l’Art et la Mode in San Francisco, Calif. The prints will be auctioned off at the completion of the gallery, with proceeds to benefit Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area.
 
“DJI aerial photography solutions empower artists to elevate their craft, both literally and figuratively, and this gallery captures images and perspectives that were once out of reach, highlighting the artistic capabilities of creators who see the world from a different angle,” said Reed Hecht, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “The SureColor P600 and P800 take advantage of the exceptional print longevity of Epson UltraChrome HD ink to preserve the legacy of the print and deliver gallery-quality art with outstanding color reproduction, making them a perfect match for showcasing photography that pushes the limits of what is thought possible.”
 
The “Perspectives by SkyPixel” exhibit is touring art galleries in leading cities in the United States, Europe and Asia. The galleries will consist of aerial photos and stories submitted by its community of users – offering the world a glimpse into the photographer’s vision and how it was captured. Select aerial photos and stories will be displayed at galleries during the tour, and will then be auctioned off to benefit local charities.
 
“The Epson printers were an ideal choice for this gallery, as they produce exceptional output that accurately conveys a photographer’s vision,” said Romeo Durscher, Director of Education, DJI. “In addition, the UltraChrome HD ink offers color stability and exceptional print permanence so we are confident in auctioning off the prints to benefit charity, knowing the photos will last for years to come.”
 
For additional information about the “Perspectives by SkyPixel” gallery and upcoming cities and locations, visit SkyPixel’s website or Facebook page.
