Weekend Recap for June 23-29, 2013

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending June 29th, 2013
 
In the news...
 
On Wednesday, Canon released a significant firmware update for the EOS M mirrorless camera. Announced at the beginning of June, the updated firmware significantly increases autofocus performance in One-Shot mode. If you have an EOS M camera, installing the firmware update is highly recommended.
 
On Friday, we reported the availability of Manfrotto’s new Acra-Swiss compatible quick-release mounts and plates. As Bryan noted in the announcement, “Manfrotto makes great gear and gives you a lot for your money. I found the lack of Arca-Swiss compatibility to be a drawback. That drawback has now been erased.”
 
On Saturday, we reported on Carl Zeiss’s rebranding announcement. Joining the likes of Madonna and Bono, “Carl Zeiss” lenses will now be known by the single word – “ZEISS.” The company decided to drop “Carl” from their lens branding because of the strength and global recognition of the ZEISS name and to create greater consistency among its product markets.
 
In site news and reviews…
 
On Monday, Bryan posted his full review of the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4 L IS USM Extender 1.4x lens. The best word to describe the lens – impressive. In versatility, image quality, and investment required. Check out Bryan’s full review for all the details.
 
On Thursday, Bryan posted his full review of the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. In short, the lens is a significant upgrade to its predecessor. Canon’s new kit lens features an improved AF motor, better manual focusing ring, and a front element that doesn’t rotate with focusing. The lens is an especially good value when purchased in a camera kit.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Tuesday, we posted a deal from DigitalRev where you could get a Sekonic Lightmaster Pro L-478DR Touch-Screen Light Meter for $359.00. That’s more than a 23% savings off the normal retail price.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
