The Canon Professional Network Europe posted an article named Inside Lightroom 5 (Pt. 1): modules & importing. Besides being a good introduction to Lightroom, the first paragraph states an interesting fact:
Adobe’s Photoshop Lightroom 5 photo editing software now comes bundled on a DVD with two of Canon’s EOS DSLR cameras: the EOS 6D and the EOS 5D Mark III.
But in Europe only you’ll get Lightroom 5 for free when you purchase an EOS 5D Mark III (price & specs) or EOS 6D (price & specs), sorry friends in the US. TDP asked a Canon Europe executive who confirmed that this is a promotion for Europe only:
“…this is a region specific promotion, only in Europe, which we are running in conjunction with Adobe.”
As for the article on CPN, it is the first of a four part series (there is a video in addition to the article):
In a four-part series of articles and video tutorials Richard Curtis (Principal Solutions Consultant – Digital Imaging, Adobe UK) will explain the key features of Lightroom 5 to give you a good grounding and understanding of how to get the most out of working with the software. In Part 1 of this series Richard Curtis examines the main modules of Lightroom and, in a special video, he explains how to create catalogs and import your pictures.
