The Contest Opens February 25, Inviting Consumers of All Skill Levels to Submit Trailers of Their Everyday Life Moments
 
NEW YORK, N.Y., February 17, 2015 - Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced that actor, Josh Hutcherson, star of The Hunger Games franchise, has partnered with Canon U.S.A. Inc. and Ron Howard for Project Imagination: The Trailer, and for the first time ever, anyone's life moments can become a movie trailer and inspire a Hollywood film. The user-generated experiment invites consumers of all skill levels to create and submit trailers of their everyday life moments, resulting in one winning trailer selected by Ron Howard and Josh Hutcherson, which will ultimately inspire a short film in which Hutcherson will star and produce.
 
"Josh Hutcherson is going to be a great addition, empowering a whole new generation to pick up a camera and realize they are far more creative than they give themselves credit for in their everyday life moments," said Ron Howard. "I encourage people to really have fun with their storytelling; who knows, the kid's birthday party might end up looking like a horror film or a trailer for a fantastic thriller that could truly captivate us."
 
"I'm fascinated by filmmaking and recently sat down with Ron Howard to hear about the history of Project Imagination," said Josh Hutcherson. "The creative process truly excites me, as does officially joining the cast of Canon's Project Imagination: The Trailer. I'm really looking forward to starring in a film inspired by user-generated trailer submissions."
 
Submissions will open on February 25 at imagination.usa.canon.com. Until then, consumers can visit the website and get inspired by watching "The Trailer of Your Life" - a 45-second trailer about the project, leveraging everyday footage from everyday consumers. The site also includes Ron Howard's tips for creating trailers.
 
Project Imagination: The Trailer marks Ron Howard's third time partnering with Canon, a brand that aligns with his conviction that people's everyday lives are visually and cinematically worth recording.
 
"We're delighted to continue our great partnership with Ron Howard and welcome Josh Hutcherson to the project," said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO Canon U.S.A.

Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens
I wanted to visually see the new Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens beside the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens and the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens. So, I sized the lenses to scale and composited a prime Art lens family photo. You can definitely see the family resemblance.
 
B&H is accepting preorders for the Sigma 24mm Art Lens with initial shipments expected to arrive March 20th, 2015.

Sean and Amanda's Valentine's Day 2015 Image
by Sean Setters
 
Amanda and I have been dating a little more than a year now. And even though I have a camera in my hand nearly every day, we have relatively few pictures of us together. This Valentine's Day, however, we decided to address that issue.
 
I've slowly been accumulating a collection of old, 35mm transparent slides for use with my Light Blaster. One recent eBay auction win left me with a set of humorous title slides designed for use with early films. Considering our fondness of hats, one slide in particular seemed well-suited for inclusion in our image.
 
We used my driveway (with a bordering fence) as the location for our shoot. The chair shown usually occupies a spot in my living room. I chose that specific chair because it was bulky enough to help me conceal the lower part of the light stand that the Light Blaster would be on.
 
For optimal results, the timing of the shoot proved essential. I needed the ambient light to drop low enough so that the projected image would show up well on the fence. Too much ambient light would make the projected image less distinct. Therefore, we set everything up shortly before sundown and kept shooting as dusk rolled in.
 
The mainlight consisted of a 580EX Speedlite flash diffused by a 24" Glow Collapsible Softbox positioned just out of the frame to the right. The softbox was chosen because its directionality allowed me to keep light from contaminating the background projection. I used a Lumopro LP180 flash zoomed to 105mm for the rim light which was positioned behind us, camera right. I used another 580EX positioned directly behind the chair with the Light Blaster + Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens attached. This lens provided the perfect size projection while its wide f/1.4 aperture also allowed me to squeeze every bit of illumination out of my flash (wider aperture = brighter projection). I used radio triggers to trigger the flashes and a Canon RC-1 wireless remote to trigger the tripod-mounted 5D Mark III + Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens (f/2.8, 1/160 sec, ISO 320). We positioned ourselves very carefully to conceal the top half of the light stand and flash / Light Blaster.
 
After a couple of dozen attempts we had the shots we wanted. After a small amount of post processing, we arrived at the image shown above. Amanda was especially happy with the shot, so it was well worth the effort.
 
And just in case you're curious, the shirt I'm wearing underneath the jacket says "Bokehlicious".

From the FAA:
 
Regulations will facilitate integration of small UAS into U.S. aviation system
 
February 15, 2015 – WASHINGTON – The Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration today proposed a framework of regulations (PDF) that would allow routine use of certain small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in today’s aviation system, while maintaining flexibility to accommodate future technological innovations.
 
The FAA proposal offers safety rules for small UAS (under 55 pounds) conducting non-recreational operations. The rule would limit flights to daylight and visual-line-of-sight operations. It also addresses height restrictions, operator certification, optional use of a visual observer, aircraft registration and marking, and operational limits.
 
The proposed rule also includes extensive discussion of the possibility of an additional, more flexible framework for “micro” UAS under 4.4 pounds. The FAA is asking the public to comment on this possible classification to determine whether it should include this option as part of a final rule. The FAA is also asking for comment about how the agency can further leverage the UAS test site program and an upcoming UAS Center of Excellence to further spur innovation at “innovation zones.”
 
The public will be able to comment on the proposed regulation for 60 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register, which can be found at www.regulations.gov. Separate from this proposal, the FAA intends to hold public meetings to discuss innovation and opportunities at the test sites and Center of Excellence. These meetings will be announced in a future Federal Register notice.
 
“Technology is advancing at an unprecedented pace and this milestone allows federal regulations and the use of our national airspace to evolve to safely accommodate innovation,” said Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.
 
The proposed rule would require an operator to maintain visual line of sight of a small UAS. The rule would allow, but not require, an operator to work with a visual observer who would maintain constant visual contact with the aircraft. The operator would still need to be able to see the UAS with unaided vision (except for glasses). The FAA is asking for comments on whether the rules should permit operations beyond line of sight, and if so, what the appropriate limits should be.
 
“We have tried to be flexible in writing these rules,” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. “We want to maintain today’s outstanding level of aviation safety without placing an undue regulatory burden on an emerging industry.”
 
Under the proposed rule, the person actually flying a small UAS would be an “operator.” An operator would have to be at least 17 years old, pass an aeronautical knowledge test and obtain an FAA UAS operator certificate. To maintain certification, the operator would have to pass the FAA knowledge tests every 24 months. A small UAS operator would not need any further private pilot certifications (i.e., a private pilot license or medical rating).
 
The new rule also proposes operating limitations designed to minimize risks to other aircraft and people and property on the ground:
 
  • A small UAS operator must always see and avoid manned aircraft. If there is a risk of collision, the UAS operator must be the first to maneuver away.
  • The operator must discontinue the flight when continuing would pose a hazard to other aircraft, people or property.
  • A small UAS operator must assess weather conditions, airspace restrictions and the location of people to lessen risks if he or she loses control of the UAS.
  • A small UAS may not fly over people, except those directly involved with the flight.
  • Flights should be limited to 500 feet altitude and no faster than 100 mph.
  • Operators must stay out of airport flight paths and restricted airspace areas, and obey any FAA Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs).
The proposed rule maintains the existing prohibition against operating in a careless or reckless manner. It also would bar an operator from allowing any object to be dropped from the UAS.
 
Operators would be responsible for ensuring an aircraft is safe before flying, but the FAA is not proposing that small UAS comply with current agency airworthiness standards or aircraft certification. For example, an operator would have to perform a preflight inspection that includes checking the communications link between the control station and the UAS. Small UAS with FAA-certificated components also could be subject to agency airworthiness directives.
 
The new rules would not apply to model aircraft. However, model aircraft operators must continue to satisfy all of the criteria specified in Sec. 336 of Public Law 112-95, including the stipulation that they be operated only for hobby or recreational purposes. Generally speaking, the new rules would not apply to government aircraft operations, because we expect that these government operations will typically continue to actively operate under the Certificate of Waiver or Authorization (COA) process unless the operator opts to comply with and fly under the new small UAS regulations.
 
In addition to this proposal, earlier today, the White House issued a Presidential Memorandum concerning transparency, accountability, and privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties protections for the Federal Government’s use of UAS in the national airspace system which directs the initiation of a multi-stakeholder engagement process to develop a framework for privacy, accountability, and transparency issues concerning commercial and private UAS use.
 
The current unmanned aircraft rules remain in place until the FAA implements a final new rule. The FAA encourages new operators to visit:

Restrap Shoot Camera Strap via Kickstarter
From the Restrap Shoot Camera Straps Kickstarter UK Campaign:
 
Less than a second. That’s the time it takes for a camera to be attached to the Shoot strap. No extra pulling or tightening, just one single action, with one single hand - all through the power of magnets.
 
The Shoot’s magnetic connection system (“SNAPS”), capable of bearing 100kg, allows any camera to be carried with unfailing security. The SNAPS are a pair: one side attaches to the camera, the other to the strap. The result is a seamless connection. Cameras are fastened, removed, swapped and fine tuned with unbeatable ease.
 
Shoot is the brainchild of Restrap, a well-established, British brand with expertise in producing innovative products, totally hand-made in Yorkshire.
 
There are two versions of the strap: The Shoot (£35) secures the camera around the photographer’s neck or in a sling style, whilst the Shoot Mini (£20) attaches around the wrist – either right or left – to keep the camera closer to hand.
 
In addition to the powerful forces of the magnets, the straps themselves are designed to withstand anything. Made from recycled, automotive-grade seatbelt webbing in 50mm (Shoot) and 25mm (Shoot Mini), they are secured with custom laser-cut tri-glide buckles and are stylishly finished with genuine, hard-wearing suede. Both models are available in red or black.
 
Nathan Hughes, founder and director of Restrap, says: “We set out to design a strap that would offer unparalleled strength without compromising the flexibility photographers want when shooting on the streets. The Shoot range gives them the security they need, whilst letting them play around with the camera quickly and easily.”

Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens
Image quality results have been added to the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens review page.
 
I think that you are going to like what you see from this lens. You will notice strong barrel distortion at 15mm (details in the top crop sample get enlarged) and some chromatic aberration to be corrected, but overall this lens is looking good including at f/2.8.
 
Here are some comparisons:
 
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L II
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Canon 16-35mm f/4 L IS
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Tokina 16-35mm f/2.8

Single On-Camera Flash Illuminates the Beauty of a Rose (Hint: Valentine's Day is Tomorrow)
Roses are arguably one of the most beautiful flowers on the face of this planet. They don't smell so bad either, which makes working around them even more pleasant. Buy the wife (or yourself) a bouquet of roses and you have days' worth of photo subject for your macro lens (and presumably a happy spouse).
 
For this image, I attached a Rogue FlashBender softbox to a forward-facing Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite. With this setup, I was free to shoot handheld as I worked on finding pleasing compositions – with deep-reaching soft light following me. This turned out to be my favorite image from this shoot. A nearly centered rose's petals curve outward into and subsequently out of the frame in a balanced manner.
 
Later, print one of your rose pictures to gain even more return on your small investment.
 
With tomorrow being Valentine's Day, I thought you might find this subject idea timely.

Roger Cicala performed a teardown of the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM and came away wondering, "Is this the best built lens ever?"
 
From the LensRentals Blog:
"For those two or three of you who don't like a little lens strip-tease I'll give you the quick summary: the build quality on this thing is amazing. I usually laugh when people describe a lens as 'built like a tank' because what I know is the lens they are describing has a thick, heavy outer metal shell filled with tiny delicate pieces that break and wear out with great frequency. But this lens is built like a tank inside and out.
 
...
 
I know I can't really, without showing you dozens of other lenses, do a good job of impressing you with just how robustly engineered this lens is. I will say that the insides look more like what we'd expect to see in a 500mm f/4 or 600mm f/4 lens, rather than a telezoom. It's by far the most heavily engineered zoom lens Aaron and I have ever seen; and we've seen the insides of dozens of lenses in this range.
 
Well done, Canon engineers, well done!"

B&H has the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens available for preorder. The price is quite reasonable, too – it's less than both the 50mm and 35mm Art lenses!
 
And while we're on the subject of price, try comparing the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art to the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM. I'm still a little stunned.
