From the Canon Australia YouTube Channel:
 
“My biggest fear is regret. So I follow my curiosity to the ends of the earth. To capture the fleeting moment, the soul of a place.”
 
Meet Canon Master Krystle Wright, adventure photographer:-http://www.canon.com.au/krystlewright
 
To celebrate the inspirational personality and sports photography of our newest Canon Master, we sent Krystle and Abraham Joffe of Untitled Film Works on a mission to explore Australia – with our most extreme sports athletes.
 
Our new film starts atop the vertigo-inducing heights of Mount Wellington deep in the wilds of Hobart, Tasmania as Krystle photographs her friends, rock climbing experts Simon Bischoff and John Fischer, plus the mountain landscape.
 
From ascending sheer faces to jumping off them, Krystle then takes her Canon 1DX camera canyoneering with Anthony O'Hern and Leon Bedford at Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain – complete with Aquatech underwater photography housing.
 
Krystle then returns home to Sydney, to go free diving with world vice-champion master diver Yoram Zekri, and then photograph mountain-biking with Chris Southwood, of Flow Mountain Bikes.
 
Finally, she returns to the rocks with Tom Farrell, capturing the art and athleticism of the most simple of action sports: bouldering.
 
"I've an insatiable desire to explore with a camera. Adventure photography is a lifestyle I live and breathe. But, also a passion and obsession." – Krystle Wright.

From PocketWizard:
 
Latest TTL firmware update expands extensive list of compatible cameras making PocketWizard more in sync with what today’s photographers are shooting with.
 
So. Burlington, VT – August 5, 2014 - LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the world leader in wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and flash power control with Sekonic light meters, announces today a new update to its ControlTL firmware for both Nikon and Canon versions of its MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios. Firmware version 3.700 for Nikon includes compatibility with the recently released D810, D610, D4S and other Nikon cameras. Additionally, firmware version 6.700 for Canon now provides TTL compatibility with the Canon 1D X, 6D and T4i as well as other recently released Canon cameras. See the compatibility list below. Any current owner of the ControlTL system can easily install this version via USB and update for free using the PocketWizard Utility. PocketWizard Utility version 1.54 or later is required before installing this update.
 
“Not only are we now compatible with all current Canon and Nikon DSLRs, we’ve added resources to our firmware department allowing us to have a significant breakthrough in firmware development. We can react much more quickly to newer cameras entering the market,” said Heather Ambrose, Marketing Director at LPA Design, the company that manufacturers PocketWizard Photo Products. “We received a Nikon D810 two weeks ago and our firmware engineers got right on it. A focused look under the hood and they found that the camera behaved similar to the D4S. After a few iterations of firmware, combined with comprehensive testing, it was determined that the D810 could be added to the current firmware release. This is by far the fastest turnaround we’ve been able to achieve, and we hope to keep this momentum going.”

Datacolor Spydercheckr 24 Color Calibration Target
From Datacolor:
 
Affordable, portable target offers photo and video professionals an on-the-go solution for color control
 
Lawrenceville, NJ – August 5, 2014 – Datacolor, a global leader in color management solutions, today announced Spydercheckr 24, a new addition to the Spydercheckr product line, which includes the flagship 48 patch Spydercheckr. Spydercheckr 24 is a precise and versatile camera color calibration and white balance target for photo and video color control for on-the-go professional photographers and videographers. Portable and affordable, Spydercheckr 24 is designed to color manage camera and scene for both still and motion imaging workflows.
 
Spectrally engineered with 24 pigment patches, Spydercheckr 24 offers the accuracy of a full size, large patch photo target in a thin, compact design. Spydercheckr 24’s gray face provides in-camera and post-process white balance and exposure adjustment, while the color face allows users to color correct capture automatically in Adobe Photoshop ACR, Adobe Lightroom, Hasselblad Phocus, and Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve.
 

 
“The biggest advantage of the system is that camera calibration is not limited to RAW files but can also be applied to JPEGs and video too,” said Lee Varis, professional photographer and digital imaging artist. “For imaging professionals who shoot a combination of still and motion, especially site photography and videography, Spydercheckr is a game changer.”
 
The Spydercheckr 24 is available immediately for $49.00 USD at photo and video retailers.
 
B&H has the Datacolor Spydercheckr 24 available for preorder.

Bummed that Apple has decided to cease Aperture support? Want to migrate to Lightroom? Adobe has you covered with a free informative guide.
 
From Making the Switch from Aperture to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom:

"At Adobe, we’re working on a migration tool to help you bring your photos into Adobe Photoshop Lightroom from Aperture, but if you’re eager to switch before the tool is ready, this guide can help ease your transition. We recognize that this migration may be a challenging process and offer the following resources and methodology to help get you up to speed with Lightroom and provide a road map for successfully migrating your photos.
 
The first challenge is that the terminology, layout, and controls of the two applications are different. It’s a good idea to start processing photos in Lightroom and become familiar with it before you migrate your photos from Aperture. You can do so by taking some new photos, importing them into Lightroom, and then using Lightroom.
 
Here are some resources to get you started with Lightroom:

We are providing a workaround solution for the second challenge of switching: Aperture and Lightroom use different image-processing engines, which means that Lightroom cannot read adjustments made in Aperture. For any photos you have edited in Aperture, you should transfer the original plus a .tiff file with adjustments applied. Then, in Lightroom, you can organize the original and the .tiff file so that they appear alongside each other.
 
In addition, Lightroom cannot read Aperture color labels, flags, or custom metadata fields. So, before you export your originals, use Smart Albums or the search filter to find images by those attributes, and apply corresponding keywords (for example, Color-red, Flagged, or Meta-ModelRelease-Yes).The steps that follow provide a generalized method for migrating your photos from Aperture to Lightroom. Please keep in mind that this guide outlines a basic workflow: you may need to tailor the steps to fit your particular setup."
