Eat – Sleep – Create – Repeat: New Varieties Of Canon Printer Paper Provide Endless Options For Individualized Creativity

Bringing DIY to the Fingertips of Consumers with New Photo Paper Options, Including Restickable and Magnetic Photo Paper

MELVILLE, N.Y., November 13, 2018 – Coco Chanel once said, “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different” and to encourage the spirit of originality, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today three new consumables for select PIXMA series printers. Restickable Photo Paper, Magnetic Photo Paper and Photo Paper Plus Glossy II 3.5 inches x 3.5 inches, provide a myriad of opportunities for users to create and decorate their personal space.

“The art of expression is a person’s most valuable asset in life,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Therefore, we felt it was imperative to provide consumers with the opportunity to bring their own imaging creations to life, ones that feel authentically unique to their individual personalities with the new line of consumables.”

Ideal for decorating personal gadgets, labeling items throughout the home or adding a little decorating “zhuzh” to a classroom or college dorm, Restickable Photo Paper is that extra detail that can stick and re-stick. Available in 4 inches x 6 inches, the restickable photo paper is compatible with Canon’s inkjet printers released from June 2013, including the new PIXMA TS9521C, PIXMA TS9520, PIXMA TR4520, PIXMA TS9220 and PIXMA TS6220 Printers, allowing users to print their own photos, graphics or text to fit their restickable needs.

The force is strong with Magnetic Photo Paper. Available in 4 inches x 6 inches size, users can stick their creative prints onto any magnetic surface throughout the home, in the office or even a school locker. Compatible with Canon inkjet printer models manufactured from June 2013 through today, magnetic photo paper provides users the ability to step away from the traditional picture frame and create imaginative ways to display their memories.

The Photo Paper Plus Glossy II makes it hip to be square and perfectly mimics your social media pages, bringing them to life. The square photo paper is 3.5 inches x 3.5 inches – eliminating the need to cut down traditional photo paper to fit square spaces – making it ideal to decorate throughout the home, attach to notebooks and even to your personal gadgets – which is #nifty. The Photo Paper Plus Glossy paper is compatible with the Canon PIXMA TS8220, TS6220, TS9520 and TS9521C Printers.

The new consumables are currently available for purchase at an estimated retail price of $5.99 for the Restickable Photo Paper, $7.49 for the Magnetic Photo Paper and $7.99 for the Photo Paper Plus Glossy II*.  For more information and the full list of product specifications, visit http://shop.usa.canon.com/.

Canon EOS R Overview and Hands-On Review (D. Abbott)

Canon Eos R

In anticipation of the full review, photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott posted a neat 23 minutes video about his impressions with the new Canon EOS R.

He says:

There are things I love about the EOS R (fantastic fully articulating touchscreen, great grip, new control ring on lenses), but also a few missing pieces (no in-body-image-stabilization and burst rate is unimpressive).  The camera shows great potential for focus, however, with incredibly fast focus speeds with the new RF 24-105mm f/4L IS.  The new 24-105L kit lens is a clear improvement over previous 24-105mm lenses, and the EOS R also focuses very quickly and naturally with adapted EF mount lenses.

Sample images can be seen here.

Here is the video review.

Skylum Luminar 2018 Review (a pretty robust piece of software)

Skylum Luminar

Dustin Abbott reviewed Skylum Luminar 2018, a photo editor that many are starting to see as a viable alternative to Lightroom.

A future, free update to Luminar 2018 will bring a library feature to the software, and I think then Luminar will be a full fledged alternative to Lightroom. At least it will be for me since I don’t like to pay a monthly fee to Adobe for using Lightroom. Skylum Luminar is very reasonably priced, and by using the code WATCH at checkout you get a $10 instant discount and pay $59 instead of $69.

D. Abbott about Luminar:

The amount of controls is impressive, and it includes standard features like Lens Corrections, Transform tools, and advanced Crop options while also mixing in some Photoshop-like tools like Clone and Stamp, Free Transform, and the ability to create layers and blend them in a variety of ways.  It’s not nearly as robust as Photoshop, obviously, but it probably does enough for 90% of users.

[Luminar] is a pretty robust piece of software that combines a very easy-to-use interface with the ability to make a massive amount of changes to the look of an image.  I think a lot of photographers will appreciate the ability to easily pick up the software and create what they like, and it is priced very reasonably for the amount of functionality built into it.

Here is Dustin’s video review:
