Vincent Laforet is at it again
The focal length in terms of 35mm is more than 3400mm Ã¢â‚¬â€œ not too shabby when you consider this was shot at 4K, 120fps in full RAW on the Epic.
So who cares? Is this just a case of “just because you canÃ¢â‚¬Â¦”
The yet to be released EF mount for the RED system fully supports IS, autofocus, digital aperture control, touch to focus, touch to rack focus and distance readout. All you need to convert your RED to EF is a Torx screwdriver.
Vincent shot this film at Mono Lake 45 minutes after sunset until it was dark. He used an ISO range of 800 to 2000.
Visit theÃ‚Â Vincent Laforet BlogÃ‚Â to see more images of the setup.
Specs of the 1D MK V
Iâ€™ve been told the lack of an A+ filterable wide angle from Canon for a full frame camera will be addressed sooner than later. Yes, thereâ€™s Zeiss, but most want AF.
Patent Publication No. 2011-145518
I expect a lot of these in the next month or so.
Announcement Date? Iâ€™ve heard 2 different dates so far. I do expect multiple announcements dates for PowerShot and EOS.
August 18, 2011. I donâ€™t recall the last Canon announcement to happen on a Thursday. Most, if not all are on a Monday/Tuesday depending on where you are on the planet.
August 30, 2011. This would come after Nikonâ€™s announcements.
I donâ€™t see September 6, 2011 as a possibility due to the long September weekend.
Another known source has spoken up and said a 5D Mark II replacement will be in quarter 1 in 2012. It was also said the line would include a “surprise”.
Canon has apparently told some dealers in Europe that the 5D2/24-70 kit will no longer be available.
Signs of a replacement of the 24-70 is starting to show some more signs.
EF 8-15 f/4L
I have been playing with one for a day or two, trying to figure out how to effectively use a fisheye. I’d like a review up by the end of next week.
More soon, been sick.
Canon EF 8-15 f/4L Fisheye
B&H has the fisheye everyone wants
available for preorderÃ‚Â in stock.
I’m getting lots of emails about how fun the lens is, especially from people with fullframe and crop cameras.
“Creative lab” Party has released a music video for the band androp that required the use of 250 Canon 60Ds wired together.Ã‚Â The effect is a wild and creative strobe show.
I wish they had clicked my “buy a 60D here” link.
Inspired by the song’s lyrics, “not to make it a memory,” Party created the video using 250 Canon still cameras; their flashes were controlled via a potent DIY cocktail of arduino, openFrameworks, and Flash. The effect is a Ã¢â‚¬Å“light animationÃ¢â‚¬Â produced with no CGI at all.
A little thing, but a thing.
Did the folks at Gigapan out the dimensions of an upcoming 1Ds Mark IV?
You can check out the page for yourself over at Gigapan. The numbers are width, height, depth and mass.
Starting July 29, 2011.

I cannot find any other stores with stock at the moment.

Available in either black or white, the X Mark I Mouse Lite is compatible with Windows PC or Mac laptops, has three mouse buttons and Bluetooth 2.01 connectivity.

A camera for 2012? Apparently the 5D Mark III is not yet a finalized product and there are still 2 decisions to be made before the product is ready for consumption.
It was also mentioned the still and video teams within Canon is very much separate and there is no overlap between the two departments. There could be some internal shakeup soon in that regard.
Do not expect a new 1D/1Ds camera to advance video functionality all that much.
February 2012 would be the earliest for an announcement that will address the 5D line.
