Among all the cool stuff the Magic Lantern developer are creating for Canon DSLR, now there is also a video game. Sort of, and for the Canon EOS 7D. If you remember Arkanoid, a game where you shot a ball against bricks with the aim to destroy a wall, then you know what this game is about is and how to play it. The game is operated via the EOS 7D’s joystick. Unfortunately it appears that Magic Lantern developer pravdomil removed the files for the game. But you can still have a look at the original post at EOSHD to learn the whole story and get more details.

I think these are the very first sample pictures shot with an Elicar V-HQ 300-600 f/4.1-5.7 lens that are around. The Elicar V-HQ 300-600mm has the particular feature of a minimum focusing distance of 21 inches/0.55mm – that is not common on a 300-600mm zoom lens and offers some interesting possibilities for macro photography. A prototype of the lens was presented at Photokina 2012, the final version should soon be released.
Lens specs after the break.
