Lumera is the Cool New Product Trying to Get Funding


"Lumera is a new device for photography enthusiasts that connects to DSLR cameras (a new kind of swiss army knife). When people buy a camera, they usually buy a fixed set of features and if they want upgrades they have to buy a new camera. Lumera closes this gap introducing a device with upgradeable software that helps to keep cameras up to date and makes it smarter by connecting them with phones. Lumera adds Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a second contextual screen, navigation and one-click action buttons for sharing on-line, geotagging (optional built-in GPS), back-up on the go, a secondary USB port for external drives storage and a bunch of software utilities for a dumb DSLR camera."

Check out the promo below.



If you think the project sounds promising you can show your support by helping them out on Kickstarter.

Canon 7D Mark ii Tutorial Training Video Update


As we are getting so many requests for information, I wanted to post and let you know that all the principle shooting and voice overs for our Canon 7Dii Tutorial Training Video was completed yesterday and we are now in the final post-processing editing stages.

Based on past experience, I would say we are looking at a download release in the next 4-5 days, I are aiming for Wednesday of next week. The focusing system lesson is much longer than it has ever been, simply because there is so much more to cover, and we also expect the video to be well over 4 hours of lessons, which is the max the DVDs will hold. We have figured out how to fit about 4.5 hours on our DVDs but that is the max.

Look for a release announcement to be posted sometime next week. Thank you for your patience and support!

Michael

Photographer Captures Video of Bear Extremely Up Close and Personal


Normally a close encounter with a large grizzly bear would be an altogether terrifying experience. For photographer Drew Hamilton is was as calm and peaceful as anything you could imagine. This gigantic bear quietly strolled up and took a little break near the river just feet from Hamilton. The bear seemingly lethargic and unimpressed with Hamilton's presence yawns a bit and moves on.

The video was taken at Alaska's McNeil River State Game Sanctuary. Apparently the bears are quite comfortable with humans around and makes for unparalleled photographic opportunities. The sanctuary gets thousands of applications for visits per year but only a select few actually get in. Check out the incredible video below.

Landmarks You Can't Photograph for Commercial Use

1. THE EIFFEL TOWER AT NIGHT

3. NOTRE DAME DE PARIS
4. BURNING MAN FESTIVAL
5. HOLLYWOOD SIGN
6. LAS VEGAS HOTELS
7. SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE
8. AYERS ROCK
9. MAPS, GLOBES AND ATLASES
10. QUEEN ELIZABETH

Some of these are surprising. However, it's pretty important to know if you're a commercial of stock photographer. You can learn more by clicking here.

Canon 7Dii Tutorial Training Video Crash Course Cover Revealed!


This is for all you Canon 7Dii owners :) - We have been flooded with questions about our upcoming Canon 7Dii Training Tutorial Crash Course Video / DVD and when it will be available for purchase. I would say we are about half-way done, and it should be finished in about 10-14 days (the download version at least). The DVD should be ready sometime around mid December.

The 7D Mark 2 is a machine gun of a camera. Seriously, the best sports shooting camera I have ever used and the 70D was by far the highest rated sports shooting camera I have tested. In terms of frames per second, focusing square coverage, number of cross type squares, it is seriously, bar-none, the best. If you are any kind of sports shooter, this is your camera.

I spend entire days on the cover of a new DVD, this one is no different. In the past I have an affinity for sunsets, but it just didn’t feel right with the Canon 7D’s tutorial, and I decided to go with one of my favorite sports subjects here on Maui, Windsurfing.

If you are one of the many, many who are interested in the Canon 7D Mark ii tutorial training video, leave your comments and email in the description below, or contact us directly and we will notify you as soon as it is finished. Thank you again for your continued support!

Nikon D750 vs Canon 5Diii Epic Shootout - Tutorial Training Comparison


Been working on this one for the last 3-4 weeks, finally wrapped it up today! The recently released Nikon D750 goes toe-to-toe against the Canon 5Diii .

Lenses used for most of the testing were:

Canon 24-70 2.8L and the Nikon 24-70 2.8 ED


Enjoy!



Ill be posting more information as the questions come in.

Here are my training videos for both:

Nikon D750 Tutorial Training Video Crash Course

Canon 5Diii Crash Course Training Tutorial Video

SPOILERS

- Still prefer the 5Diii for video. The moire, iso performance and look are personally more appealing to me, that is just my preference.

- I was happy to finally get a Dynamic Range test together, I expect there to be some scrutiny, but am convinced the data is good. I am on the verge of working out a calculation for total Dynamic Range for each camera, and this would be a very effective tool so I can test them right away and not wait for a certain website to publish their results.

- The Canon 6D did make an appearance in most of our tests, long story short, the D750 was still better and mainly what you are looking at here is the cost savings of $1600 for the 6D vs $2300 for the D750.
