From Canon USA:

MELVILLE, N.Y., August 13, 2014 - Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the launch of a multi-year partnership with the Little League International, which kicks off with the "Print to the Little League Baseball World Series" event in South Williamsport, PA. From today through the end of the tournament on August 24, baseball fans from around the world can utilize Canon PIXMA Printing Solutions and cloud technology to share photos and words of encouragement printed on-site to create "The Great Wall of Fandom." With the new partnership, Canon becomes the official camera and printer sponsor of Little League Baseball and Softball, the world's largest youth sports organization.

To celebrate the tournament and cheer on all of the competing teams, fans from around the world can submit their supportive comments and images via a custom microsite, thegreatwalloffandom.com. Canon will then print high-quality versions of the photos and messages on a Canon PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One printer, made possible via cloud connectivity, and the Canon team in Williamsport will add them to "The Great Wall of Fandom." Series attendees will see the photos and messages posted throughout the tournament, and images of how the exhibition evolves will also be shared online daily for the enjoyment of supporters worldwide.

Brand ambassadors will also be available at the World Series sites using Canon EOS Rebel T5i Digital SLR and Wi-Fi equipped PowerShot SX700 HS Digital Cameras to take photos of attendees and post the content directly to "The Great Wall of Fandom." In addition, Best Buy has partnered with Canon to lend on-site support at the batting cage installation to answer any PIXMA printer or PPS questions.

"From input to output with Canon cameras and printers, the multi-year partnership with the Little League Organization will allow Canon to connect with a new generation of young families who want to capture and share quality memories of this exciting sporting event," said Yuichi Ishizuka, President and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "We are thrilled that the 'Print to the Little League Baseball World Series' initiative allows us to demonstrate the ability to print from virtually anywhere to anywhere via PIXMA Printing Solutions (PPS). Moreover, we're connecting with fans who can't be there in person, but want to show their support and encouragement for the players."

While anyone can submit photos to "The Great Wall of Fandom" from virtually anywhere during each game, Canon will also produce keepsakes for on-site spectators and attendees of the Little League Baseball World Series by inviting them to pose in a Canon-branded batting cage located in the Family Fun Zone area, where on-site brand ambassadors will take photos using Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR cameras and then print the captured images directly on Canon PIXMA MG7120 printers as tokens of the attendees' experience.

This year marks the 75th Anniversary of Little League, and part of its longtime success in providing a healthy, safe environment for 2.4 million children in more than 80 countries can be attributed to the assistance provided by sponsorships. Canon joins Little League as its 20th National Sponsor, which help Little League maintain low team affiliation fees and provide valuable training and educational resources to coaches, parents, umpires, and volunteers. Many of Little League's national sponsors also participate in enhancing the fan experience at the Little League Baseball World Series Family Fun Zone.

"We are excited to welcome Canon as Little League's newest national sponsor and to the Little League Baseball World Series this August," said Liz DiLullo Brown, Little League Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships. "Little League is more than a youth sports organization, it is a youth leadership organization, and thanks to the support of our national sponsors, Little League is able to provide parents a healthy, affordable recreational outlet for their children."

From the Canon YouTube Channel:

Canon is continuing to make efforts to help protect our customers from potentially dangerous counterfeits. How can you tell if your Canon battery is genuine? Select Canon products communicate with their battery to identify if the battery is genuine Canon. Watch this video to learn more. For more information, please visit:
http://usa.canon.com/cusa/about_canon/standard_display/aboutcounterfeits

Sean's Take: Canon has been on a crusade against counterfeit batteries and other accessories:

However, I think this latest video does a poor job of differentiating between third-party batteries and counterfeit batteries. It lumps both types of batteries into the same, scary "non-genuine battery" category.

Personally, I'd be much more concerned about using a conterfeit battery than a third-party battery. If a company is dishonest enough to slap a Canon logo on its battery, then there's a good chance the company doesn't care about the performance and safety of the product. And why would they? The dishonest comany's reputation is not at stake.

However, when a company puts their own name on a battery intended to be used in a Canon product, I'm more willing to believe that the company has taken sufficient precautions to ensure the battery will work as advertised and won't damage my camera. And if it does damage my camera, I know that Canon isn't responsible for the repair bill.

I understand that Canon wants to protect and educate its customers. There's nothing wrong with that. However, I think labeling third-party batteries and counterfeit batteries in the same way goes a bit too far, and I start questioning whether the movie's motive is really about public safety or the bottom line.

By Sean Setters

I run a small photography business and typically shoot high school senior photos, family portraits, maternity sessions as well as the occasional corporate work.

Last week I was hired by the Cookeville Performing Arts Center's Cultural Arts Program Assistant, Kim Frick-Welker, to shoot headshots to be used as promotional material for an upcoming show. After completing that assignment, Kim invited me back to CPAC to shoot another round of headshots for her own portfolio (Kim wanted various headshots because she occasionally acts in or directs theater performances).

Kim asked that her headshots be photographed using a black background. As she was wearing a black shirt, this requirement made the setup a little challenging. I had to push quite a bit of light onto the black curtain behind her (as well as use a hair/shoulder light) in order to provide enough separation between the subject and the background. Overall, Kim was happy with the images we got. The following was my personal favorite:

Kim Frick-Welker Headshot on Black

After shooting the headshots with the black background, Kim had what she had asked for. But the last time I was on stage, I was captivated by some of the set pieces being prepared for the upcoming play. I had imagined using the lounge chair as a prop and the understated, yet beautiful wallpaper as a backdrop. And I couldn't get that idea out of my head. So after we wrapped up the headshots Kim had asked for, I suggested we take a few more minutes and try something completely different. I explained to her what I was thinking and she readily agreed to extend our session a little longer. She decided a change of clothes might work better for the new setup, and I agreed.

Setting up the shot (seen at the top of this post) took 5 - 10 minutes. I used nearly the same lights and light modifiers that I had used in the previous setup, so it was merely a matter of moving around some furniture, a few light stands and my tripod.

Kim Frick-Welker Lounge Chair Setup

It only took a few shots to dial everything in. And after that, we captured some of the best images of the day. No, they weren't the images Kim had asked for – but she liked them even better (as did I).

So what did I take away from this experience? When clients hires you, they may have a set of guidelines (or restrictions) for you to follow in order to achieve specific goals. And there's nothing wrong with that. You have to give the client what they need.

But many times it's difficult to create the image that's in someone else's head, no matter how well they communicate it to you. So you do your best to give the client what they've asked for.

It may sound obvious, but here's something to keep in mind – anyone who hires you was likely impressed with the work you've already created. So if a shot really inspires you, it will likely inspire your client as well – so try to devote a few minutes to getting the shot you want to get, even if it's not a part of your agreed shot list. And then maybe both of you can walk away from the table getting more than you bargained for (in a good way).

From the Canon Professional Network:

"Digital Photo Professional (DPP) version 4.0 is the latest release of Canon’s free RAW image management and editing software, and this incarnation is heralded as the first major update since the software was launched. Canon has responded to feedback from Digital Photo Professional users and incorporated feature requests and suggestions into version 4.0 to create a better looking package that offers a smoother, faster workflow. In this article CPN writer George Cairns examines how DPP 4.0 is better equipped to support your photographic workflow – as you import, browse and develop large numbers of RAW images – and investigates new features, such as the ability to make selective hue, saturation and luminance adjustments for eight colour gamuts."

I've been using our site-reviewed Canon EOS 7D for years (I received it not long after the review was published). I have thoroughly enjoyed using the camera and I have taken many memorable shots with it. However, being a bit long in the tooth, I can't help but wonder how it might be better...

Keep in mind, Canon has never indicated that it is working on an EOS 7D successor. However, it's fairly logical to assume they are working on something to fill the EOS 7D's market space (top-end APS-C DSLR).

So today, we'd like to know – what [relatively feasible] upgrades would you put into an EOS 7D Mark II? What new specs would make it the undisputed king of the APS-C camera line? [Sean]

From KickStarter:

A paper USB business card with full analytics and remote access. Meet the new standard for premium business cards.

What is a swivelCard?

A swivelCard is a premium paper business card that includes a USB drive--a smart business card. It includes analytics and can be updated even after giving it out.

What Can swivelCard Do?

We patented a system for turning regular paper into a USB drive. Now we've included this technology in a business card. When you own swivelCard, you own the premium business card on the market.

  • Paper comes alive with embedded USB technology. Imagine giving your business card with pictures, videos, presentations, and websites for the recipient to interact with!
  • Analytics through a back-end software interface will allow you to access helpful information about your cards and how they are being used.
  • You can edit the destination you've selected remotely. Remote access to your swivelCard gives you many opportunities to continue interacting with the card's recipient. With the back-end interface you'll be able to log in to your account and remotely make changes to the destination. Plus, this can be done individually for each specific card. Want that potential client to go to a list of testimonials instead of your standard video greeting? You can make that change on the fly after they've left with the card!

From the Canon Australia YouTube Channel:

“My biggest fear is regret. So I follow my curiosity to the ends of the earth. To capture the fleeting moment, the soul of a place.”

Meet Canon Master Krystle Wright, adventure photographer:-http://www.canon.com.au/krystlewright

To celebrate the inspirational personality and sports photography of our newest Canon Master, we sent Krystle and Abraham Joffe of Untitled Film Works on a mission to explore Australia – with our most extreme sports athletes.

Our new film starts atop the vertigo-inducing heights of Mount Wellington deep in the wilds of Hobart, Tasmania as Krystle photographs her friends, rock climbing experts Simon Bischoff and John Fischer, plus the mountain landscape.

From ascending sheer faces to jumping off them, Krystle then takes her Canon 1DX camera canyoneering with Anthony O'Hern and Leon Bedford at Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain – complete with Aquatech underwater photography housing.

Krystle then returns home to Sydney, to go free diving with world vice-champion master diver Yoram Zekri, and then photograph mountain-biking with Chris Southwood, of Flow Mountain Bikes.

Finally, she returns to the rocks with Tom Farrell, capturing the art and athleticism of the most simple of action sports: bouldering.

"I've an insatiable desire to explore with a camera. Adventure photography is a lifestyle I live and breathe. But, also a passion and obsession." – Krystle Wright.

From PocketWizard:

Latest TTL firmware update expands extensive list of compatible cameras making PocketWizard more in sync with what today’s photographers are shooting with.

So. Burlington, VT – August 5, 2014 - LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the world leader in wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and flash power control with Sekonic light meters, announces today a new update to its ControlTL firmware for both Nikon and Canon versions of its MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios. Firmware version 3.700 for Nikon includes compatibility with the recently released D810, D610, D4S and other Nikon cameras. Additionally, firmware version 6.700 for Canon now provides TTL compatibility with the Canon 1D X, 6D and T4i as well as other recently released Canon cameras. See the compatibility list below. Any current owner of the ControlTL system can easily install this version via USB and update for free using the PocketWizard Utility. PocketWizard Utility version 1.54 or later is required before installing this update.

“Not only are we now compatible with all current Canon and Nikon DSLRs, we’ve added resources to our firmware department allowing us to have a significant breakthrough in firmware development. We can react much more quickly to newer cameras entering the market,” said Heather Ambrose, Marketing Director at LPA Design, the company that manufacturers PocketWizard Photo Products. “We received a Nikon D810 two weeks ago and our firmware engineers got right on it. A focused look under the hood and they found that the camera behaved similar to the D4S. After a few iterations of firmware, combined with comprehensive testing, it was determined that the D810 could be added to the current firmware release. This is by far the fastest turnaround we’ve been able to achieve, and we hope to keep this momentum going.”

For more information on how to update PocketWizard products via USB connection and to view current release notes for Nikon firmware update version 3.7 and Canon firmware version 6.7 please click here.

From Datacolor:

Affordable, portable target offers photo and video professionals an on-the-go solution for color control

Lawrenceville, NJ – August 5, 2014 – Datacolor, a global leader in color management solutions, today announced Spydercheckr 24, a new addition to the Spydercheckr product line, which includes the flagship 48 patch Spydercheckr. Spydercheckr 24 is a precise and versatile camera color calibration and white balance target for photo and video color control for on-the-go professional photographers and videographers.

Bummed that Apple has decided to cease Aperture support? Want to migrate to Lightroom? Adobe has you covered with a free informative guide.

From Making the Switch from Aperture to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom:

"At Adobe, we’re working on a migration tool to help you bring your photos into Adobe Photoshop Lightroom from Aperture, but if you’re eager to switch before the tool is ready, this guide can help ease your transition. We recognize that this migration may be a challenging process and offer the following resources and methodology to help get you up to speed with Lightroom and provide a road map for successfully migrating your photos.

The first challenge is that the terminology, layout, and controls of the two applications are different. It’s a good idea to start processing photos in Lightroom and become familiar with it before you migrate your photos from Aperture. You can do so by taking some new photos, importing them into Lightroom, and then using Lightroom.

Here are some resources to get you started with Lightroom:

We are providing a workaround solution for the second challenge of switching: Aperture and Lightroom use different image-processing engines, which means that Lightroom cannot read adjustments made in Aperture. For any photos you have edited in Aperture, you should transfer the original plus a .tiff file with adjustments applied. Then, in Lightroom, you can organize the original and the .tiff file so that they appear alongside each other.

In addition, Lightroom cannot read Aperture color labels, flags, or custom metadata fields. So, before you export your originals, use Smart Albums or the search filter to find images by those attributes, and apply corresponding keywords (for example, Color-red, Flagged, or Meta-ModelRelease-Yes).The steps that follow provide a generalized method for migrating your photos from Aperture to Lightroom. Please keep in mind that this guide outlines a basic workflow: you may need to tailor the steps to fit your particular setup."

From Canon:

TOKYO, August 4, 2014—Canon Inc. announced today the start of a new program launched in cooperation with paper manufacturers and paper sellers that provides users with an expanded selection of specialty print media compatible with the Canon PIXMA PRO (PIXUS PRO in Japan) series of inkjet printers. The program allows professional and advanced-amateur users of PIXMA PRO printers to choose the ideal paper according to their personal preferences and print project demands.

Canon PIXMA PRO Partner mark

The new Canon initiative gives users access to inkjet print media that satisfies standards for the popular Canon A3+/13”-wide PIXMA PRO printer lineup: the PIXMA PRO-1, PIXMA PRO-10 and PIXMA PRO-100. Print media that meets these criteria will display the PIXMA PRO Partner mark.

Users will be able to purchase paper carrying the PIXMA PRO Partner mark with peace of mind, knowing that the product has been tested for use with the PIXMA PRO printer series. Accordingly, users will have an enhanced printing experience as they will not only be able to use Genuine Canon Paper, but also select from a variety of art and specialty print media according to individual print needs. To ensure optimal print results, the ICC profiles for paper offered through this initiative by other companies can be obtained on paper manufacturer and seller websites and elsewhere.

By combining Genuine Canon Paper along with paper from other companies that satisfies Canon standards, Canon provides users with an extensive selection of specialty print media to meet the diverse print needs of professional and advanced-amateur users.

Join landscape photographer and Canson Infinity ambassador Robert Rodriguez Jr as he shares advanced workflows in the Lightroom 5 Develop module.

Creatively developing images in Lightroom is more than just optimizing tonalities and color, it entails careful interpretation of the raw file to effectively convey the essence of the image. Selective detail, subtle use of color, and local adjustments are some of the things Robert demonstrates using the tools in the develop module. He also explain why these adjustments are important and how they can contribute to better images. This is not about pre-sets, but rather being open to your personal creative vision.

What to see the inside of Canon's new wide-angle lens?

Roger Cicala at LensRentals has posted a lengthy, well-illustrated article detailing his teardown of Canon's EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens.

Roger's Conclusions:

"Now that I’ve seen the insides I’m very optimistic that this lens will be less likely to deteriorate optically over time, and will be more easily corrected when it does. We won’t know for sure until we’ve got a year’s experience with it, of course, but from a design and assembly standpoint it looks really, really good.

I know I’m beginning to sound like a Fanboy, especially considering I hardly ever mount a wide-angle zoom on my camera. But I guess the corny old line from the Most Interesting Man in the World works. 'I don’t often shoot Canon wide angle zooms, but when I do, I prefer the 16-35 f/4 IS.'"
