(CW4) Adobe Lightroom 6 coming tomorrow, April 21st?


Looks like the announcement of Adobe Lightroom 6 is imminent. Fuji Rumors spotted a teaser for “something really BIG” at lightroomkillertips. Scott Kelby isn’t explicitly mentioning LR6, but we think it is very likely that Lightroom 6 will be announced tomorrow. Writes Scott Kelby:

OK, for us, things don’t get much bigger than this — now, unfortunately I can’t tell you actually what it is that’s coming Tuesday, but it’s SO BIG that we’re doing FOUR free live Webcasts on Tuesday and you’re invited (if you’re a photographer, you’re going to want to be there to see and talk about this big secret thingy).

Stay tuned…

The three most used Cameras at Shutterstock are all Canon DSLRs

As you can see in the chart (larger version), Canon DSLRs are firmly at the top of the used cameras: Undisputed at the first rank is the venerable EOS 5D Mark II, followed by the EOS 5D Mark III and the EOS 6D.

The EOS 5D Mark II and 5D Mark III together are used for 41% of the photos shot with the top 10 cameras. Shutterstock produced this figures by extracting EXIF data from the photos.
