“Pulse” Is A Beautiful Black & White Time-lapse Of Storms, Monsoons And Supercells

I featured works by Mike Olbinski previously (1 | 2 | 3), beautiful time-lapse movies of storms, tornados, thunderstorms, you name it. He’s a storm chaser and he makes outstanding time-lapses.

This time we feature Pulse (4k), a black and white time-lapse of monsoons and supercell. Says Mike Olbinski:

For quite a few years now I’ve been wanting to do something different with my time-lapse films. I love color. Storms are full of color. The blues, the greens, the warm oranges and reds at sunset. The colors are sometimes what make a simple storm into something extra special.

But black and white speaks to my soul. I love it. There is something when you remove the color that lets you truly see the textures, movement and emotion of a storm.

All shots were captured with a Canon EOS 5Ds R, EOS 5D Mark III, and EF 11-24mm, Ef 16-35, 35mm, 50mm and 135mm lenses. Processed using Lightroom, LR Timelapse, After Effects and Premiere Pro. You can follow Mike Olbinski on his site, and on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram.

Canon EOS System celebrates 30th anniversary

Canon press release:

Canon EOS System celebrates 30th anniversary

TOKYO, January 5, 2017—Canon Inc. will celebrate in March the 30th anniversary of the launch of the Company’s EOS System, which includes EOS-series interchangeable-lens cameras and a diverse range of system accessories, beginning with interchangeable EF lenses.

Canon’s EOS System made its debut in March 1987 with the launch of the EOS 650 single-lens reflex (SLR) camera and EF lenses.1 An acronym of “Electro Optical System” while also carrying the name of the Greek goddess of the dawn, the EOS series saw first light in 1987 as the world’s first fully electronic mount system, representing a new generation of AF SLR cameras.

With all the digital camera key devices—the CMOS sensor, image processor and interchangeable lenses—utilized by the EOS System developed in-house, a strong product lineup began to take shape as the basic performance of each product steadily increased. Playing to this strength, Canon released the first entry-level DSLR in September 2003, the EOS Kiss Digital (EOS Digital Rebel or EOS 300D in other regions), ushering in a new digital era. With the Kiss Digital highly praised for its compact, lightweight design, user-friendliness and competitive price, Canon seized an overwhelming portion of the interchangeable-lens camera market that year, taking the No.1 share, which it has held for 13 consecutive years through 2015. What’s more, thanks to long-term support from customers, in November 2015, cumulative production of EOS-series cameras reached 80 million units, and in August 2016, the total number of EF lenses produced surpassed the 120 million-unit mark.

Since its debut in 1987, the EOS System has consistently aimed to expand the boundaries of photographic expression, and with Canon’s optical technology at its core, the Company continues to refine its imaging technology and strengthen and expand the EOS System. In 2008, the Company released the EOS 5D Mark II, the world’s first digital SLR camera equipped with a Full HD video function, facilitating the widespread adoption of digital SLR cameras as a tool for capturing video, and in 2012, that video technology was transformed for the B-to-B sphere in the form of the Cinema EOS System, introduced to the world in Hollywood, California. Now, the EOS System, including the Cinema EOS System, comprises 24 models2 with a selection of 97 EF lens models.3 With this rich product lineup, the EOS System meets the various needs of different users.

Canon will continue to refine its diverse imaging technologies based on its core optical technology, combining still-image, video and network capabilities to expand and create an even stronger EOS System that meets the needs of increasingly diverse users to promote the spread of photo and video culture. What’s more, thanks to advances in imaging technology, Canon is opening up new expressive avenues, where texture, three-dimensionality and a sense of realism can be recreated in both still images and videos, to support appealing imaging experiences.

The updated Canon 16-35mm F2.8L III USM offers a pretty incredible performance upgrade from its predecessor. All of the major issues that plagued the previous iteration of the lens including coma and lateral CA, and particularly sharpness both wide open and stopped down, have been addressed. Lateral chromatic aberration was a major issue in the previous version of this lens, to the extent that it reduced sharpness. The new lens dramatically corrects these sharpness and CA issues, especially at 16mm.
