Canon Explorer Ulla Lohmann on the Powershot G7 X

Canon Professional Network article about the new Canon Powershot G7 X. While you will hardly find anything negative, the article is never the less a good insight on what a pro can do with a G7 X. She says:

This is in many ways the perfect camera for an adventure photographer like me […] It’s professional quality but in a pocket size. My most favourite thing about it is the f/1.8 aperture in the brilliant f/1.8-2.8 24-100mm 4.2x zoom lens. Because of the G7 X’s large 1.0-type sensor it invites you to be more creative. You can introduce nice bokeh and blur into your shots and thanks to the flip screen it is easy to get creative with your compositions too. That’s very cool. It encourages you to be ‘looser’ with your photography, experimenting and being more creative than you might have otherwise been with a DSLR.

More Powershot G7 X coverage here. We had some positive reviews, and one that wasn’t very positive. Canon Powershot G7 X price check: PixMania NL, DigitalRev, eBay.nl.

Adobe Lightroom 5.7 and Camera RAW 8.7 Now Available (support for 7D2 and G7 X)

Adobe Lightroom

Adobe released Lightroom 5.7 ( Mac | Win) and Camera Raw 8.7 and DNG Converter 8.7 (Mac | Win), with added support for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II and Powershot G7 X.

The new release updates some features:

  • Synced collections now show a more prominent share button at the top of the Toolbar.  This allows you to quickly share your synced collection with friends, family, and clients using Lightroom web (http://lightroom.adobe.com).
  • Comments and likes left on Lightroom web now sync to the Lightroom desktop catalog.  Comments and Likes will be shown in the “Comment” panel for synced collections.
  • Images with comments and likes will display a badge indicating that there are comments and a colored badge to indicate that there are unread comments.

Integrated a utility to import images from Apple Aperture and Apple iPhoto libraries into Lightroom:

  • Previously available as a separate and downloadable plug-in, this utility has now been integrated into Lightroom 5.7

Corrected bugs:

  • The crop overlay displayed an intermediate step when progressing through images in the filmstrip with overlay displayed.
  • The lens profile for the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 would not auto-select when using Lens Profile Corrections.
  • ICC profiles resulted in incorrectly clipped shadows and blacks in Lightroom.  Note that this is related to the issue identified here and only occurs on Mac OSX 10.9 and later
  • Fixed crash when rapidly adding corrections with the Spot Removal tool.
  • Fixed bug that prevented the Filter Brush cursor from displaying while changing brush size when the Graduated and Radial Filter overlay is turned off.
  • Improved quality of Camera Matching color profiles for the Nikon D810. Fixes visible banding issues with the Camera Standard, Camera Vivid, Camera Landscape, and Camera Monochrome profiles.
  • Context menu (right click on PC or control+click on Mac) was disabled for images contained in Lightroom mobile collections.
  • Fixed issue that prevented Lightroom 5 from reading Photoshop Elements 13 libraries.
  • Cover images set by Lightroom mobile were sometimes incorrectly reset by Lightroom desktop.
  • Sync with Lightroom mobile sometimes stalled when asset is added to same album on both LrM and LrD and later deleted
  • Resolved issue that caused Lightroom to crash when creating a Print and saving it to a mounted DVD directly inside Lightroom.
  • Publishing images to Behance using the Behance Publish Service has been restored.

New lens profiles were also added:

Canon EF SIGMA 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM C014
Canon EF SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM S014
Canon EF Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16mm f/2.8
Canon EF Zeiss Otus 1.4/85 ZE

The CAMSLINGER 160 Street Edition bag introduces a new concept of carrying a mirrorless camera on the hip or as a sling bag (works also for a superzooms or a smaller DSLR). It’s not a solution to transport large amounts of gear as the bags are on the smaller side, but for daily live when out shooting with smaller gear it will be a very quick and good solution. I have one and I love it.

The prizes:

Canon C100 Mark II First Impression and Side-by-Side with C100 Mark I

Cinema5d posted a Canon EOS C100 Mark II hands-on with comparison to the C100 Mark I.

They say:

Canon improved a lot of small things with regards to handling and usability in the C100 Mark II, and slightly improved image processing with a newer processing unit – which results in cleaner images. Overall it’s just an incremental update though, and the lack of 4K recording, higher internal bitrates and only up to 60fps in 1080p leave a lot to be desired.

The Canon C100 sells for $5,499 and can be pre-ordered at B&H Photo and Adorama.
