The previous round of Canon rebates ended last night (Feb 27 at midnight). In an unsurprising move, Canon has decided to implement another round of camera and lens instant rebates scheduled to run through April 2.
What is surprising, though, is that many of the previous rebates have been increased while many new lenses now qualify that were absent from the previous program. All in all, this appears to be one of Canon's most enticing rebate programs I've seen in a long time.
As always, the DSLR rebates vary depending on bundled lenses and/or accessories.
In this video, Chase from Zacuto briefly demonstrates cinematic lighting set ups that filmmakers can use for 4 popular film genres: Noir, Romance, Horror and Sci-fi. Starting with sci-fi, the team creates a colorful, other-worldly look with textured backgrounds and multiple lights. For noir, they demonstrate what can be done with just one powerful light along with careful placement of light modifiers to create a classic look. The romance look teaches the importance of soft, high-key light, and how to turn set pieces into diffused light sources. Lastly, the horror look shows how to create a frightening atmosphere with shadows and fog, plus you’ll get to see a clever practical light trick.
As you might ave guessed, B&H carries most of the supplies needed for these cinematic lighting setups.
TOKYO –February 23, 2016 – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of its renewed online photo sharing service, "NIKON IMAGE SPACE". This latest version of the service was launched on February 22, 2016.
Originally launched in January, 2013, "NIKON IMAGE SPACE", the name of which expresses the fact that it is a space for sharing and appreciating images, is a free online image sharing and storage service open to anyone who enjoys taking photos or recording movies.
With this renewal, we have made "NIKON IMAGE SPACE" easier to use and more practical.
We have equipped "NIKON IMAGE SPACE" with three new modes that allow users to enjoy photos from a variety of angles. "View" mode supports intuitive browsing of photos, and the new "Report" mode enables analysis of aspects such as photographic tendencies from shooting information for uploaded photos and feedback on shared photos. "Organize" mode (computer version only), also available prior to the renewal, has been improved to enable easier and more natural photo organization with a left-and-right pane layout.
Photo sharing functions have also been improved. Users can specify a period of time for which images are shared (share duration), and the service has also been equipped with a function for receiving applause from those with whom images are shared. In addition to the ability to set the share duration, images can also be password protected. What's more, a browsing function that enables automatic display of photos to which the same tags have been attached, much like an album, has been added.
We plan to offer collaboration with SnapBridge, our new app announced in January, 2016, that enables constant connection between a Nikon digital camera and a smart device using Bluetooth low energy. This will enable automatic upload of an unlimited number of 2-MP images to "NIKON IMAGE SPACE" from SnapBridge with a registered Nikon ID.
Franz Josef Land is the northernmost archipelago in the world, only 560 miles (900 kilometers) from the North Pole in the Russian Arctic. It is uninhabited by humans—except for a few scientists working in the nature reserve—and the wildlife population is robust. The rugged environment is home to thousands of walruses, whales and polar bears.
Photographer Cory Richards joined the Pristine Seas expedition to Franz Josef Land as a natural history photographer. When it came to making an image of the mighty polar bear, it was trial by fire. "I've been working for over a month to try to capture something that both celebrates the power of this animal, but also celebrates intimacy and gets us in close. This is my first time trying to actually photograph a polar bear in its natural environment. I'm learning. I'm learning every single second."
On one of his final attempts to photograph a polar bear, he decided to get out of the boat and go onto the shore, where he saw a polar bear in the distance. The plan was to set up a camera on the beach and hope that the bear would come over, Richards said. "As I get out of the boat, I'm thinking, 'First of all, this is stupid. There have been fatal attacks on these islands. People have lost their lives here. I'm willfully jumping onto the beach, with a very hungry bear, who has lost the opportunity to escape with the ice pack. I'm now food. I'm part of the food chain. And I'm certainly not the top of it.'" Richards set up a time-lapse camera on the beach, as well as a small video camera. "All that matters right now to me is making an image that has a lasting impact." But the bear was not paying attention to the team or coming any closer—until they launched a drone.
The team quickly got back in the boat to let the bear be, and the bear's curiosity led him right toward the camera on the beach. Richards got the images he was hoping for. "I think polar bears are one of the most special species that we can be looking at right now. Their life, in every way, is threatened. Climate change is affecting their environment. Photographing a polar bear, in the current state of the world, is not only beautiful but deeply important and deeply impactful."
