From the tutvid YouTube Channel:
 
In this Photoshop tutorial, we will break down five different techniques that you can use to change the color of any object in Photoshop. We will look at the simple masked Hue/Sat adjustment layer, the Color and Hue blend modes, converting white (or black) to a color, targeting an individual color channel, and using the LAB mode readout to use Curves and change a color to exactly match what you want. By the end of this tutorial, you’ll have a whole bag of tricks that you will be able to use to change the color of anything while working with Photoshop.

Site visitor Mark sent an email earlier this week to alert us to a peculiar issue where Adobe Lightroom 6 displays and imports duplicate images when using a USB cable to import photos from the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II when two memory cards are installed in the camera with only one of them having RAW images recorded on it. One of the earliest references to the issue appears on the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom forums in a post made more than a year ago.
 
Unfortunately, according to Mark, the issue isn't limited to Lightroom 6; it apparently occurs with Apple Aperture 3.6 as well. That the issue appears on multiple software platforms may indicate that a firmware update from Canon will be necessary to correct the issue.
 
Has anyone else run into this duplicate file issue when importing RAW files with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II? If so, besides taking one of the memory cards out of the camera, did you find a convenient workaround? Let us know in the comments below.

From AlexOnRAW:
 
Today Phase One released Capture One Pro 10.2. We are used to seeing a number of new features in such major updates, but Capture One 10.2 is developed to support the new Phase One IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Digital back and Phase One iXG camera. That doesn’t sound pretty exciting; however, there are few additional reasons not to skip the new release.
 
First of all, Capture One 10.2 delivers lots of bug fixes, that’s always nice! Plus there is quite a noticeable improvement to Styles tool, regardless of it not being mentioned in the official release notes. Now it works faster and smoother. You will also find support for new cameras (Canon 6D mkII, Nikon D850, yay!) and new lenses in Capture One 10.2.
 
Phase One iXG camera support
 
If you think that Phase One is a Capture One company, you have missed the lion’s share of their production that prepared a base for a such a fantastic RAW processing app.The point is that besides the software, Phase One are developing medium format cameras, digital backs and professional solutions for industrial and cultural heritage photography.
 
The new iXG camera was built for work in museums and archives, where the quality and accuracy of the image is everything. That’s why the processing in Capture One delivers such a stunning result; it was developed not by the software-only company, but with a strong hardware background as well.

From Canon USA:
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., September 21, 2017 – Canon Inc. announced today the development of the Free Viewpoint Video System, a new visual solution that incorporates the optical and sensor technologies cultivated by the Company over many years. Using this technology, Canon aims to provide a high-value-added imaging solution for a wide range of applications including sporting events.
 
Various types of video production are employed at sporting events to convey a passion for sports and the thrill of competition. With the development of its Free Viewpoint Video System—which creates a realistic, immersive experience that gives the user a sense that they are really there—Canon has achieved a video experience that can be viewed from various angles and viewpoints, expanding the boundaries of visual expression and contributing to the development of video culture.
 
The system comprises several high-resolution cameras set up around the stadium, which are connected to a network and controlled via software to simultaneously capture the game from multiple viewpoints. Afterward, image processing technology renders the videos as high-resolution 3-D spatial data where users can freely move a virtual camera around the 3-D space, resulting in video that can be viewed from various different angles and viewpoints.
 
The Free Viewpoint Video System offers a completely new, totally immersive visual experience that enables viewers to operate a virtual camera in 3-D space to move freely around the stadium and even experience the simulated physical sensation of being among players on the field during a game. Along with providing a new way to enjoy sporting events, Canon plans to explore such potential applications for this system as training teams and athletes.
 
Canon will showcase the Free Viewpoint Video System at the Canon booth during Inter BEE 2017, held from November 15 to 17 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.

Canon Will Continue to Engage and Educate Visitors at One of the World’s Most Photographed Events Through 2020
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., September 21, 2017 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce a renewal of its partnership with world-renowned event, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, taking its role as presenting sponsor of the event through 2020. This renewed sponsorship marks Canon’s commitment to the Albuquerque community, an area where Canon calls home to one of the two U.S. support centers that service the Company’s customers. To mark this momentous three-year sponsorship renewal, Canon has and will continue to sponsor the opening Mass Ascension and closing Night Magic™ Glow events.
 
"It’s been a true honor to serve as the presenting sponsor of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta since 2015,” said Eliott Peck, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "It is a place to let your imagination run wild and is truly awe-inspiring as colorful balloons fill the sky – making it the ideal setting for photographers and videographers to capture spectacular images.”
 
As one of the most photographed events in the world, the balloon fiesta offers many photo opportunities to create memories of a lifetime. This year’s 46th annual event will take place Oct. 7-15, 2017 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, featuring over 500 hot air and gas balloons, of which the Fiesta anticipates almost 100 of those to be special shaped balloons.
 
"We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Canon as the Fiesta’s Presenting Sponsor for the next three years,” said Balloon Fiesta board president, Mike Rice. “This event is a crux of the Albuquerque community and Canon’s support over the years has helped our guests create lasting memories.”
 
With this renewal, Canon will continue to host hands-on activities, allowing attendees to try its wide array of products to bring their experience to life. Attendees will have the opportunity to borrow the latest Canon equipment* from the Main Street booth where they can also sign up for photo walks and use Canon’s interactive photo booth.

With the announcement of the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM, many of those previously considering purchase of the EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM may be now wondering which of Canon's L-series 85s is right for them. As such, we are going to take a look at how these lenses differ to hopefully make the decision making process a little easier.
 
Advantages of the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM over the EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM
 
  • Better manual focusing experience: traditional MF vs. focus-by-wire
  • More aperture blades: 9 vs. 8
  • Image stabilization: 4-stops vs. none
  • Weather sealed vs. not weather sealed
  • Slightly higher max magnification: 0.12x vs. 0.11x
  • Lighter: 33.5 oz vs. 36.2
  • Slightly smaller diameter: 3.49" (88.6mm) vs. 3.6" (91.4mm)
  • More common filter size: 77mm vs. 72
  • Internal focusing vs. extends during focusing
  • Lower cost
Advantages of the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM over the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM:
 
  • Wider max aperture: f/1.2 vs. f/1.4
  • Shorter length: 3.31” (84.1mm) vs. 4.15" (105.4mm)
Who should opt for the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM
 
If you need the absolute widest aperture in your 85mm lens, either for action-stopping purposes or for maximizing separation between your subject and your background, then the EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM will ultimately be the best choice.
 
Who should opt for the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM
 
In two words – "everyone else."
 
The benefits of the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM over the 85 f/1.2L II are both numerous and substantial. First and foremost, the lens' 4-stop IS system will enable you to shoot static subjects in significantly lower light while maintaining tolerable ISO levels. This is a huge benefit that should not be underestimated.
 
Next, the traditional manual focusing design will be welcomed by nearly every photographer who ever handled the 85mm f/1.2L II USM (or the EF 50mm f/1.2L USM, for that matter). The traditional design promises to be a much more responsive, akin to what we've come to expect from most L-series lenses.
 
The 85 f/1.4L IS's weather sealing further increases its versatility over the f/1.2 model. While we always advise taking precautions when inclement weather is expected, the 85L IS's weather sealing enables you to keep shooting without interruption in moderately wet or dusty conditions.
 
The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM's lower cost will certainly be a universally-appreciated feature, as will the benefits of an extra aperture blade in creating a smooth background blur.
 
Summary
 
Unless you absolutely need or want an f/1.2 maximum aperture, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM will likely prove the best investment for most photographers because of its overall greater versatility and lower price.

Image quality test results from the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III have been added to the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM Lens Review.
 
We've tested about five copies of this lens and somehow didn't get any of them tested on the 1Ds Mark III. These results are especially useful for backward compatibility when making comparisons with older lenses in the image comparison tool.
 
This is an amazing lens – I personally bought one.

We mentioned yesterday that B&H had several camera plates for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II available for purchase (although most are on backorder at the moment). However, I forgot to mention a clever design feature of the Kirk L-bracket which allows full functionality of the 6D II's vari-angle LCD screen.
 
The L-bracket's side port features a pivoting mechanism which enables the side plate to swing out of the way of the LCD (shown in the video above).
 
B&H has the Kirk L-Bracket for Canon 6D Mark II available for purchase with expected availability in 7-14 days. Note that if you plan on using the BG-E21 battery grip with your 6D Mark II, you'll need to purchase the Really Right Stuff BG-E21 Base and L-Plate Component. In the RRS design, the L-plate can be removed entirely for full access to the LCD.
