"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending July 27th, 2013
In the news...
On Tuesday, Corel announced Painter X3. With the newest version of Painter, Corel introduced new tools such as Jitter Brushes, Crosshair Cloning, Perspective Guides, Smart Brush Controls, and Multi-Layer Transformations. Painter X3 will start shipping in early August.
Also on Tuesday, NASA released images taken by the Cassini spacecraft as it passed near Saturn’s rings on the previous Friday. The images show a small, pale-blue Earth set against the vastness of space below Saturn’s brilliantly illuminated rings. It is truly a humbling sight. Check out NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory page for more information.
In site news and reviews...
On Thursday, Bryan published his full review of the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM “Sports” lens. In short, the lens proved to be a significant upgrade over its predecessor - in both image quality and overall versatility. Bryan was so impressed with the lens that it now has a permanent home in his lens arsenal. For more information, check out Bryan’s full review.
And, for our deal of the week…
On Monday, we posted a deal from DigitalRev where you could get a Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera for $1,629.00. That’s more than a $350.00 off the normal retail price.
