July 18, 2013 - Ever heard of Parkour? It's an athletic discipline that has one of Joe McNally's friends literally climbing the wall. Joe shows how he shot and lit the action.
 
In this episode of , shot exclusively for AdoramaTV, Joe McNally deconstructs the lighting setup for a location shoot of a Parkour practitioner in the streets of Brooklyn, NY. Joe explains how to match the quality of your existing light, in this case hard daylight, with a hard flash off-axis, and do it quickly and with minimal setup.

Companies Offering Advanced Options for Gigapixel Photography
 
Portland, Ore. - July 17, 2013 - Gigapan and Promote Systems have united to help photographers simplify their workflow process when creating High Dynamic Range (HDR) and focus stacked gigapixel imagery. The Promote Control, an all-in-one, advanced remote control for digital SLR cameras, enhances the Gigapan EPIC Pro robotic camera mount by increasing the flexibility in exposure bracketing needed to create high-quality images.
 
The EPIC Pro and the Promote Control automatically capture high-resolution panoramas with almost any camera and lens combination. The Promote Control connects to both the camera and the EPIC Pro, allowing the EPIC Pro to manage the exposure time at each image location, while the Promote Control triggers the camera. The EPIC Pro automatically shoots hundreds or thousands of photos, as the Promote Control assists with HDR and focus stacking. The Promote Control also manages the camera’s image capture and lens focal plane adjustment.
 
A new instructional video demonstrates the EPIC Pro and the Promote Control working together, and a new gallery on gigapan.com has also been added, featuring images shot using both technologies.
 
With the EPIC Pro and Promote Control, photographers have the ability to:

  • Easily take up to 45 photos at an individual location during the capture process for HDR
  • Control the camera to take up to 120 different focal planes at each location for focus stacking, creating an amazing image that is tack sharp from front to back
  • Capture exposures anywhere from 1/8000 of a second up to several hours
  • Automatically switch to Bulb mode bracketing for images longer than 30 seconds

“Combining the Promote Control with the EPIC Pro takes shooting HDR and focus stacked imagery to a higher level,” said Josh Friedman, CEO of Gigapan. “It makes it immensely easier for photographers to capture stunning and highly technical shots with more control and options when shooting high-resolution panoramic images.”
 
“In my desire to document the drastic changes the climate continues to have on the Columbia Icefield in the Canadian Rockies, I envisioned panoramic images that not only captured high resolution, but also allowed exposure brackets to shoot in HDR to show depth and clarity,” said Joe Poulton, professional photographer, Columbia Icefield Gigapixel Project. “The combination of Promote Control and the Gigapan EPIC Pro helped create my initial image of the Athabasca Glacier. I will continue to capture aspects of the Columbia Icefield, as weather permits, using this combined system."
 
“The Gigapan EPIC Pro is a perfect companion for panoramic imaging professionals and amateurs alike,” noted Artyom Kamshilin, inventor and chief designer of the Promote Control.
 
“When paired with a Promote Control, the combination offers unparalleled flexibility, reliability and ease of use for both HDR and focus stacked panoramas.”
 
Adorama carries the Gigapan EPIC Pro and Promote Control.

Tether Tools Vu Booth
From Tether Tools:
 
Combination of products creates an accessible photo booth for weddings and events
 
July 17, 2013 – SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Tether Tools is excited to announce the introduction of the Vu Booth – a simple, portable and affordable photo booth solution for weddings and events. Designed with photographer ease in mind, the Vu Booth serves many photo display needs, travels easy and affords the photographer various options for set up.
 
By providing a modular booth setup that leverages Tether Tools’ Vu Monitor Mounts, the Vu Booth helps photographers offer a photo booth option to their clients without having to invest in a major casing/housing. The Vu Booth system includes a choice of one of the Vu mounts – Studio Vu, Local Vu or Go Vu Mount – and includes a Camera Platform, Articulating Arm and Rock Solid ProClamp. The system is designed to utilize a monitor, DSLR and studio stand of choice.
 
The Tether Tools Vu Booth sets up in minutes. Easily connect any VESA compliant monitor to the Vu Monitor mount of choice. Once mounted, the monitor can easily rotate from landscape to portrait position. Then connect the Pro Clamp and Articulating Arm to a tripod leg or studio stand column. The camera platform mounts any camera, which can be positioned on top, below or to the side of the monitor. When not being used as a photo booth the same equipment can be dismantled and utilized in a number of other capacities and situations in the photography and video workflow.
 
Choosing the right Vu Mount
 
The Vu Booth offers 3 different mount options – Studio Vu, Local Vu or Go Vu – to connect the monitor, depending on size/weight, to the stand of choice. The Studio Vu mounts easily to a studio stand’s standard 5/8” (16mm) stud and has a maximum weight capacity of 80 lbs. (36.5kg)*. The Local Vu mounting options include 1/4”-20 thread tripod/ballhead mount, 3/8” tripod mount, 5/8” (16mm) stud as well as an Arca-style plate mount. The Go Vu offers a 1/4”-20 thread tripod/ballhead mount as well as an Arca-style plate mount. The maximum weight capacity of both the Local Vu and Go Vu is 35 lbs (15.88kg).
 
“Photo Booths can be large, cumbersome and expensive. Tether Tools VU Booth introduces a solution that allows photographers to integrate gear they already have on hand to create a portable and streamlined photo booth for their clients. With the Vu Booth, photographers can use their photo booth software of choice and users can see their images immediately, generating instant gratification and encouraging more event attendees to participate.” said Josh Simons, president of Tether Tools.

Canon EOS M Camera
First, Canon USA did not announce the EF-M 11-22mm lens. Canon USA later stated that this lens is not going to be imported to the USA: "Thank you for your inquiry regarding the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens. We can certainly understand the confusion surrounding this release! Unfortunately, this specific lens will not be sold or serviced by Canon USA."
 
Then the big retailers dropped the EOS M price to an insane level.
 
Then the EOS M was marked as discontinued at Adorama. Adorama confirmed to me that their buyer's understanding is that EOS M has indeed been discontinued.
 
This, however, is in contrast to what my Canon USA PR rep is telling me: "The EOS M is not a discontinued product and this is also true for the lenses associated with this product." Canon USA will of course not disclose any future plans.
 
We are left to speculate the future of the M.
 
If Adorama's buyers are right, it seems strange to have two EF-M lenses available without a camera to sell them with. Is a new EOS M coming soon? Next week will mark the 1 year announcement anniversary of the EOS M, but I've only had my first-available "M" since November. This camera is not very old.
 
But, what the EOS M cameras need is the new Dual Pixel CMOS AF Canon has recently announced as coming in the Canon EOS 70D. Although the EOS M's AF performance is much improved with the recent firmware update, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF would make it an even better camera. So, introducing a new M model makes a lot of sense.
 
Introducing a "new" lens along with a new camera also makes sense – this happens frequently. Also having precedent is bringing a "new" lens to the USA after it has been available elsewhere in the world. I'm of course referring to the EF-M 11-22.
 
What makes sense to me is the introduction of an EOS M II featuring Dual Pixel CMOS AF and at the same time, announcing the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens in the USA.
 
Amazingly still in stock is the Canon EOS M with EF-M 18-55mm Lens at Amazon – for $349.00 shipped. And the Canon EOS M with EF-M 22mm Lens for $299.00 shipped is available for backorder. Jump on this awesome deal if you have not already done so. Start your Christmas shopping early.
 
Read the Canon EOS M review for more information on this extremely good camera value.
 
Just because Canon USA is not importing the EF-M 11-22mm lens to the USA doesn't mean USA residents cannot get this lens. DigitalRev will be happy to send you one.
 
Side note: Your browser zoom setting has probably not changed. I increased the font size of much of the text on the site, including the Site Index page, to make reading easier. Spacing between lines of text is also slightly increased. Most in-text links now have a blue color to make them easier to identify. Hopefully you find the changes to be improvements. Thanks for your support!
