Does Canon’s Dual Pixel AF Need a New CPU to Show All Of Its Power?

Dual Pixel AF

Canon’s Dual Pixel AF was introduced with the awesome Canon EOS 70D. It was clear since the beginning that this innovative technology would be featured on various, future Canon DSLRs.

Now, a new rumor suggests that Canon’s Dual Pixel AF technology needs a new, more powerful processor to be fully exploited – maybe a Digic 6. This is especially true if the Dual Pixel AF is set to work with larger sensors and/or high end video production. That means we will see Dual Pixel AF unleash all of its magic with the next generations of Canon’s Cine EOS Cxxx series, and in the next high end DSLRs (which should be announced next year).

The rumor sounds plausible. Moreover, that Canon is looking to the EOS Cine line-up for their Dual Pixel AF technology appears to be granted: Canon just announced a hardware upgrade for the EOS C100 that brings Dual Pixel AF (see here too for an interview about the Cine line-up and Dual Pixel AF)

Lightroom 5 Tutorial

Canon Professional Network published the 5th and last part of their ongoing Lightroom 5 tutorial series: Inside Lightroom 5 (Pt. 5): Output Options.

Lightroom output options

Examining the output options of Lightroom is the final part of this series, but it is equally as important as the rest. There are multiple output choices that we have available to us: options such as making books, creating web galleries or slide shows or just printing and exporting to social platforms (such as Facebook or Behance). This guide explains all of them and will give you a flavour of each option and how to use them to your advantage.

The post comes with a video tutorial, but the following sections are covered in text too:

  • Map ModuleCreating Books
  • Configure the Book Preferences
  • Configuration of the printed book
  • Preparing Lightroom for creating the book: Auto Layout
  • Creating consistent type for your text
  • Book layout customisation
  • Creating Collections
  • Re-configuring the book once Auto Layout has completed
  • Modifying Templates
  • Creating a Book Cover
  • Create Slideshows
  • Printing from Lightroom
  • Colour Management & Soft Proofing
  • Web publishing
  • Exporting your pictures from Lightroom
  • Publish options
