A First Look at Canon’s 8K Camera Prototype at Photokina

Canon is displaying an 8K camera prototype at Photokina, and the folks at Cinema5D took the chance for a first look and some questions.

The camera in the video actually is a modified C300 Mark II with a prototype 8K super-35mm sensor developed by Canon. The prototype shots 8K RAW files at 60fps. One hour of footage means more than 10TB (Terabyte) of produced data.

DPReview posted a critical article about the EOS M5, named “Opinion: The EOS M5 is Canon’s best ever mirrorless camera, and a big disappointment“, and in my opinion is one of the many, boring Canon brand-bashing reviews without any relation to the real world. Since Canon is market leader, I guess throwing mud on the company is some hipster-like thing the makes you look cool.

A large selection of EOS M5 pictures (not samples shot with the EOS M5) can be reviewed at Photography Blog.

Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.7 and Lightroom 6.7 now available (EOS 5D Mark IV support added)

lightroom

Adobe released updates to Lightroom 6.

From Adobe:

Lightroom CC (2015.7) and Lightroom 6.7 are now available.  The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support and lens profile support, and to address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom.

Please note that this version of Lightroom contains compatibility fixes for macOS 10.12 (Sierra) and also requires macOS 10.10 and greater.

We recommend you update to Lightroom CC (2015.7) and Lightroom 6.7 prior to updating to macOS 10.12 (Sierra).

Publish to Adobe Stock Contributor Site

You can now submit images directly from Lightroom CC to the brand new Adobe Stock Contributor Site using the included Adobe Stock Publish Service.  By contributing to Adobe Stock, you have the opportunity to showcase your work to millions of customers directly inside Creative Cloud applications.

Updates to “All Synced Photos”

We’ve made it easier to access your Lightroom CC images on the go with Lightroom for mobile and Lightroom for web.

You can now drag images directly to the “All Synced Photographs” collection in the Catalog panel.  By doing so, the image syncs with the Creative Cloud, and ensures that you’ll be able to edit, organize, or share the photo on the go with Lightroom across your devices.

Smart Previews for Faster Performance

You’ve always been able to use Smart Previews in the Develop Module as a way to edit photos without having access to the original images on disk.  Astute customers reported faster performance in the Develop Module when using Smart Previews and keeping their original images disconnected from their computer.  Now, you can set a Preference in the Performance tab so that Lightroom will always use Smart Previews in the Develop Module, if they are available, even when the original files are also available.

To do so,

  1. Choose Edit > Preferences.
  2. In the Preferences dialog, select the Performance tab.
  3. In the Develop section, select Use Smart Previews Instead Of Originals For Image Editing.
  4. Click OK and then restart Lightroom.
