My camera has no power, I can't update the Firmware!
If your camera will not charge the battery, try the following workarounds which may recover the situation enough to allow the battery to continue charging.
If these measures fail to charge the camera battery, contact the Nikon Support Centre for further advice.
Introducing Lightroom 5 Beta
Lightroom 5 beta builds on the vision of the very first Lightroom beta. From day 1, Lightroom was designed for photographers and by photographers to help them focus on what they love—the art and craft of photography. Lightroom provides photographers with an elegant and efficient way to work with their growing digital image collections, bring out the best in their images, and make an impact from raw capture to creative output, all while maintaining the highest possible quality each step of the way.
New Features in Lightroom 5 Beta
The Lightroom 5 beta program is available to the public. Anyone with an Internet connection can download it and start putting it to the test. You do not need to own (or have tried) a previous version of Lightroom. You can download the beta and use it until the product expires on June 30, 2012.
Download the Lightroom 5 Public Beta.
Adobe's Lightroom YouTube channel has several informative videos on Lightroom 5 Beta.
This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending April 13th, 2013
In the news...
On Monday, Canon released a firmware update for the Canon 6D. The new firmware addresses a bug that would cause the 6D to spontaneously request confirmation of the date and time settings even after the settings were already configured.
Also on Monday, Red Rock Micro announced its newest product – the One Mane Crew. The One Man Crew is a slide system that runs automatically keeping the subject in focus thanks to its parabolic track. The device promises to deliver cinematic results with minimal resources.
On Wednesday, PocketWizard announced its beta firmware release plan update. PocketWizard plans to update the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 for compatibility with the Nikon D600, D5200, D3200, the Canon 6D and T4i, and provide HyperSync Improvements for both systems.
On Friday, we posted a news announcement about newly purchased Canon lenses arriving with the Mark II center-pinch lens caps. Long-time Canon customers will surely be happy with this change.
In site news and reviews...
Bryan continued to highlight his updated lens recommendation pages this week. Bryan highlighted his lens recommendations for weddings, outdoor sports, indoor sports, macro subjects, wildlife, and landscapes. And on Saturday, Bryan also highlighted what he considers to be “bargain buys” in the lens world.
On Monday, Bryan posted an update regarding his Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC lens standardized testing. In the end, the lens provided very impressive image quality results – but the difficulty in obtaining a trouble-free copy of the lens indicates Tamron may have some quality control issues to address.
On Thursday, Bryan responded to questions as to whether or not the Canon 85 f/1.2 L’s autofocus was acceptable for sports use. In short, when paired with a very capable body like the 1D X, the lens provides decent results even in moderately challenging conditions.
And, for our deal of the week…
On Friday, we posted promotional deals from Adorama where you could get several popular items at significant savings. The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM was an especially good deal – only $1,949.00 with free shipping, 2% Rewards, and a free Red Giant Production software bundle.
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!
