From Epson Germany:
 
August 9, 2013 - Epson Germany is reaffirming its commitment to the environment by supporting environmental photofestivals, including the renowned "horizonte" festival held at Zingst on Germany's Baltic coast earlier this year. The company became the festival's premium partner for print and projection for the third successive year.
 
The festival's guiding principle is that photography increases environmental awareness through visual means, and Epson enthusiastically participated by using its state-of-the-art Epson SureColor SC-S series printers to print over 1,400 square metres used in 25 indoor and outdoor displays on site. The exhibition included the "Life-Size Elephants" open air installation by Austrian photographer and filmmaker Klaus Reisinger.
 
"Sustainable business and environmental protection are core elements of our corporate philosophy. It's a real stroke of luck when a festival's objective and a company's message overlap to such an extent. That is why Epson feels committed to doing all it can to support the message being imparted by the photographers and all who build on the power of the printed image", asserted Epson Germany Managing Director Henning Ohlsson. "The festival's spectrum matches the technological diversity we can bring to bear here - whether in the Digigraphie Gallery, in indoor and outdoor photo displays, multimedia shows, print workshops or the print studio. We are delighted to be partnering the festival again this year.
 
"High image quality is at the heart of the cooperation between Epson and the festival,"added Ohlsson. "A perfect print brings images to life. It makes the photographer's stories tangible in the truest sense of the word. The outdoor displays are particularly technically challenging. High quality also means great durability - and the prints have to be able to withstand the harsh weather conditions by the sea in Zingst. We are superbly equipped for this."
 
Epson Germany has also supported exhibitions of camel photographs by Ralf Baumgarten in Dubai, and also plans to be involved in other such exhibitions going forward.
 
Adorama carries Epson printers.

From Canon UK:
 
United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 13th August 2013
 
Canon today announces the details of its biggest ever presence at IBC, the leading global tradeshow for media and broadcast professionals held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
 
Canon has been an exhibitor at IBC for more than 30 years, and 2013 will see the company’s largest stand to-date. Covering a full 432m2, the stand will be a clear demonstration of the company’s on-going and expanding commitment to the broadcast industry and will display Canon’s complete range of world-class products, including more than 75 lenses, as well as Full HD and 4K camera solutions.
 
Reflecting current industry interest in acquiring content at higher resolutions, this year will combine touch and try opportunities with a greater focus on how 4K production can be brought to life, including a live 4K production workflow using Canon’s latest products.
 
Canon’s Cinema EOS System, XF and XA cameras will all be available to touch and try on the stand, along with a complete range of Canon television and cinematography lenses. Showcasing Canon’s heritage as a manufacturer of optics, visitors will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the huge range of options on offer. Technical demonstrations will showcase other unique capabilities of Canon’s line-up, including the incredible low light performance of Cinema EOS cameras.
 
Ken Koyama, Deputy Head of Professional Imaging Group, Canon Europe, said: “Last year’s IBC was our chance to introduce Canon’s expansion into 4K to the European market. This year we’re focusing even more on fully demonstrating not only the capabilities of new 4K technology, but how the breadth of Canon’s overall range enables production of first class content at all levels.
 
“We’ve been listening to a huge range of voices from the industry, which have been telling us that content creators are looking for tools that allow them to really express their creative visions, so we have continued to add features to our products that enable them to be more expressive. We’ll be at IBC to demonstrate the full range of Canon’s products and help visitors to identify and take their next creative step through the latest innovations in broadcast technology.”
 
In addition to Canon’s on-stand experts, a selection of independent industry professionals will also be on-hand to present on an exciting array of topics, sharing their experiences of using Canon products and answering visitors’ questions.
 
Canon’s stand location at IBC 2013 will be Hall 11, Stand E50.

Note that I posted the full Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens Review earlier today. Unfortunately, I used the wrong title, saying "First Looks" instead of "Full Review". Sorry for the duplicate post, but I don't want anyone to miss this one. It's a great lens.

Devin Graham is a well-known action/adventure/travel videographer who uses Canon DSLRs and GoPros for his filming. In his most recent video, Devin films longboarders riding along a closed road course in Utah.
 
While the above video is certainly exciting and entertaining, the behind the scenes video was most interesting to me. Notice how much planning and preperation goes into the shoot and how seemingly dangerous the camerawork is (although significant safety precautions were followed).
 
Behind the scenes:
 

 
DSLRs have changed the landscape of filmmaking over the last few years. The introduction of the Canon 5D Mark II helped lower the bar on investment for creating high-quality, high-definition videos. If you'd like to share a video you captured with Canon or Nikon DSLRs, post a link to it on our Facebook page and tell us the gear you used in the post.
 
Note: If sharing a video, please make sure it's family friendly. :-)

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending August 10th, 2013
 
In the news...
 
On Monday, Nikon announced several new products. Along with a couple of PowerShot cameras, Nikon announced the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens and the compact, lightweight SB-300 AF Speedlight. Both products are scheduled to be available at the end of this month.
 
On Thursday, we posted a video from National Geographic’s YouTube channel demonstrating how photographer Nick Nichols and videographer Nathan Williamson used robots and aerial drones to capture dramatic images of Serengeti lions that appear in this month’s issue of National Geographic.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Tuesday, we posted an eBay auction hosted by Adorama where you could get a Refurbished Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens for $279.99 with free shipping. That’s a 60% savings off the normal, new retail price.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
