From the Richard Curtis Blog at Adobe:
There is a new free iPad app in the Apple App Store based on the Adobe Digital Publishing platform. This great app has been created by Canon and goes in the whole Canon camera eco-system. It’s got a wealth of content and interactivity, including which lenses to use for what style of photography (Macro, Wedding, Portrait, Food and many more), tips and techniques when using the Canon EOS system, but also interviews with leading Canon Ambassadors and Explorers. The app is available here in the Apple App store, and is available in EMEA only.
It appears Adobe accidentally leaked Lightroom for iPad before the official announcement. It looks like the app will be a cloud subscription of $99 on an annual basis.
There may be other purchase options when it officially launches.
Adobe’s marketing for Lightroom for mobile is “Take Lightroom anywhere.” According to an Adobe employee, the software will have a lot of the same features currently in Lightroom for desktop.

I received an email today that stated Canon has a new Hybrid camera (video & stills) coming in September.
It wasn’t stated whether or not it was a new DSLR or a new form factor camera.
It was supposed to be used around the globe shooting promotional video, but due to budget constraints it will not leave Japan.
I am trying to get a bit more info as to what is being classified a “hybrid” camera.
Sony and Panasonic have both shown us new types of camcorders, maybe this is in the same area.
iPad, 5D Mark II and Space Shuttles
This is a fun read.
An Apple WiFi iPad, a Canon 5d Mark II with a WFT-4e II A, a three-year-old linksys broadband router, a first gen REV. A, a Sprint Aircard and some duct tape … watch out, Macgruber, you’ve got nothing on us. And what did all of the above give us? A camera that took wicked awesome photos on an iPad out the window of the Reuters trailer at the Kennedy Space Center and all from the comfort of the Hampton Inn in Titusville, Florida.
