Macphun is becoming SKYLUM Software

Macphun is becoming SKYLUM Software

By Canon Rumors | October 25, 2017 | Third Party Software

We have a vision of bringing photographers a truly worthy Adobe alternative. We feel we are among the few companies who can achieve this goal. We also know that you – photographers – have high expectations and demands. And we will do the best we can to make you happy with your new software.

To reflect a lot of upcoming changes, our growth and big plans we are changing the name to SKYLUM. We think that this name is a better fit and is closer to where we want to go in the near future.

From Macphun/SKYLUM Software:
We started Macphun more than seven years ago as the team who built apps for iPhone. In the first three years, we released close to 60 different applications. Most of these apps were really far from photography.

But the biggest successes came from our photography applications. We topped more than 20,000,000 downloads with our most popular applications: FX Photo Studio, Silent Film Director, and Perfect photo.

Early in 2011, we launched our first photo software on the Mac App Store – FX Photo Studio Pro. A year later, we received our first recognition from Apple – Snapheal was named among the Best Apps on the App Store.

Since then, our products have been getting this (and similar awards) non-stop. I believe Macphun is the only photo software developer in the world to hold this recognition for five straight years in a row. We also have more “Apple Editor’s Choice” awards than most app developers on a Mac.

Throughout these years we grew and got bigger. We were driven by the idea of helping photographers on the Mac, to make stunning photos in less time. Read more at Macphun

According to Nokishita, the brand new Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 Di VC USD that Tamron announced was under development last month, will apparently be available or preorder on October 26, 2017.

We don’t know pricing yet, but I suspect it will come in around the $799 price tag that the Sigma’s 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 DG OS comes in at.

A Major New Cinema EOS Product Coming for NAB 2018

A Major New Cinema EOS Product Coming for NAB 2018

By Canon Rumors | October 22, 2017 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

We’re told that a “major new product” will be coming from ahead of NAB 2018 in April. There were no details given beyond that.

However, we have heard various little bits of information from various people over the previous few months. An anamorphic lens, which has been rumored for quite some time should see the light of day for the show.

There also is also the obvious gap between the C300 Mark II and the C700.

We’ve only heard once that a new Cinema EOS DSLR is coming, but that is something we think is a long shot. There has been no mentions of a 4K mirrorless video focus mirrorless camera, and I think we can all agree that would be out of character for Canon.

I don’t think an 8K camera from Canon is coming in 2018.

More to come…
