From DxO:
 
Also available, DxO FilmPack v5.1.4 and DxO ViewPoint v2.5.6 are now fully compatible with Adobe Photoshop CC 2015
 
Paris – July 1, 2015 – DxO, one of the world leaders in digital imaging technology, announces the immediate availability of DxO OpticsPro v10.4.2, DxO FilmPack v5.1.4, and DxO ViewPoint v2.5.6 for Mac and Windows. These three updates allow these DxO solutions to support the Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R cameras, and to allow DxO FilmPack 5 and DxO ViewPoint 2 to integrate perfectly with the 2015 edition of Adobe Photoshop CC.
 
Enhanced Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R images
Renowned for its unequaled management of highlights, outstanding color rendering, and the spectacular results of its ultra-high-quality PRIME denoising feature, DxO OpticsPro 10 now supports RAW files from Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R cameras. Digital noise is removed; details and color saturation are preserved, particularly in dark areas; and textures are preserved, even when shot at the highest sensitivities — perfect tools for these two extremely high-resolution cameras from Canon, which offer a wide range of sensitivities and high accuracy.
 
25,000 available DxO Optics Modules for unrivaled optical corrections
DxO OpticsPro v10.4.2 also adds 789 new camera/lens combinations to its DxO Optics Modules library, thus offering support to lenses from Canon, Samsung, Sigma, Sony, Tamron, Tokina, Voigtlander and Zeiss for numerous Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony cameras.
 
Developed in the laboratory using an exclusive calibration process, DxO Optics Modules contain all of the information about the characteristics of each camera and lens. This database, the most unique in the world, allows DxO OpticsPro to automatically correct distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lens softness with an unparalleled level of quality.
 
Compatible with the 2015 edition of Adobe Photoshop CC
Praised by professionals for the high fidelity of its analog renderings, DxO FilmPack allows users to reproduce the characteristics of the films that made photo history. Its ultra-simple interface allows users to apply numerous original renderings, filters, tonings, and visual effects — all of which can be combined in an infinite number of ways — all while preserving the image quality, thanks to DxO FilmPack’s RAW format support.
 
DxO ViewPoint fixes even the most complex perspective problems and easily restores the natural shapes of subjects located on the edges of images. Benefitting from all of DxO’s optical calibration know-how, it corrects barrel, pincushion, and fisheye distortion.
 
DxO FilmPack and DxO ViewPoint can be used both as standalone applications as well as plugins for Photoshop, Elements, Lightroom, Aperture, and DxO OpticsPro. As either a standalone application or as a plugin for DxO OpticsPro, they allow users to directly process TIFF, JPEG, or RAW images. As plugins, they offer an extremely flexible workflow with Adobe and Apple solutions.
 
Prices and availability
DxO OpticsPro v10.4.2, DxO FilmPack v5.1.4, and DxO ViewPoint v2.5.6 are immediately available at photo resellers.
 
Photographers who acquired a DxO OpticsPro 9 license on or after September 1, 2014, are entitled to a free upgrade to version 10. Photographers who purchased a DxO FilmPack 4 license on or after September 1, 2014, are entitled to a free upgrade to version 5.

For what it's worth, this is my primary, pack-almost-everything bag that I take with me on almost every major shoot. Fully packed with gear it isn't light, but the shoulder straps and waist belt make it comfortable to wear especially over short to moderate distances. Make no mistake, this is a big bag (take a good look at the "packed" photo above). The quality of the bag is excellent and it has held up extremely well over the 3 years I've been using it; I do not regret my decision to purcahse this bag (even at full price). [Sean]

Watch how San Francisco-based design director Bradley G. Munkowitz uses lazers, smoke, colored filters and falling crystal dust to create what will soon be the ubiquitous Windows 10 hero image.
 
For historical context, Windows XP hero image is generally regarded as one of the most viewed photographs in history. Below you can see photographer Charles O'Rear describe how he captured the familiar image.

Samyang Optics UK Website Changing to Samyang Foods
Not long ago, the Samsung UK website was one of the better sources for obtaining information regarding Samyang Lenses. Why? As the Samyang UK site was authored by English-speaking natives, it was much easier to read (the press releases were translated very well) compared to some of the other international Samyang sites.
 
Over the past year or so, the main Samyang Optics site has gotten much better for English-speaking individuals and has been redesigned with a great look. The main site has gotten so good, in fact, that it looks as if Samyang decided to go a different direction with their UK-oriented site.
 
Just think, if Samyang had made this change around April 1, no one would have thought I was being serious in reporting this change. But truthfully, I'm just not creative enough to have come up with this.
 
Ramen, anyone?
