Canon to partner with GoPro in some capacity? [CR0]

Canon to partner with GoPro in some capacity? [CR0]

By Canon Rumors | December 7, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Back in November, we were told by an unknown source that Canon and GoPro were working on a partnership, we dismissed it a viable rumor and didn’t bother posting about it on this site.

Other sites have started to post about a Canon & GoPro partnership. So we figured we’d also address it, as readers have already started emailing us about this.

The original source told us the following:

Canon will sign a cooperation deal with GoPro. They are interested in the digital image stabilisation and video capabilities of 4K without a crop. GoPro will profit by getting the Canon colour science and undisclosed other key technologies

Canon doesn’t seem to be a company that is much into these types of partnerships, and with GoPro being for sale, it seems like an acquisition Canon could make quite easily if there was a business case for it.

Stranger things have happened, but be mindful of the [CR0] rating on this one.

Don't miss a thing!

Off Brand: Sony 36mp full frame sensor capable of 4K at 480fps leaks

Off Brand: Sony 36mp full frame sensor capable of 4K at 480fps leaks

By Canon Rumors | December 1, 2018 | Industry News

It looks like Sony has no intention of resting on the laurels with sensor development. A leaked spec sheet seems to show a 36mp full frame sensor capable of shooting 480fps in 4K is coming soon. Might this be for a Sony A7S III camera body some time in 2019?

This spec sheet hasn’t been officially released by Sony as of yet, so there’s a slight possibility that it’s fake. Though we don’t think so.

The spec list is in the gallery below.

In Final Cut Pro, you might see an alert that legacy media files won’t be compatible with future macOS releases.

Legacy media files are compatible with macOS Mojave, but they won’t be with future macOS releases. Legacy media can include footage recorded with cameras like Sony HDCAM-SR cameras, footage from GoPro cameras recorded in the CineForm format, video files in the Avid DNxHD/DNxHR format created with software, footage shot with many other older cameras, or files modified with older software.

While your Mac is running macOS High Sierra or macOS Mojave, follow the steps in this article to back up your Final Cut Pro libraries, and complete and update projects that contain legacy media.

To make sure media you create now will be compatible with future macOS releases, use cameras and media formats supported by Final Cut Pro.

By Canon Rumors | October 11, 2018 | Industry News

The 5DayDeal Complete Photography Bundle 2018 sale is now live, and this year’s bundle is a great one.

We love to see that both Skylum’s Luminar 2018 and our favourite quick photo editor Photolemur 3.0 are included in the bundle. Just their addition alone makes the $89 purchase price of the main bundle a great deal. Keep in mind, if you have Luminar 2018, you’re going to receive Luminar 2019 for free.

We’ve also looked at the education portion of the bundle and are really excited by the drone classes in both the main bundle, as well as additional drone training in the charity match bundle.

There is lots of other great training for all types of photography, plus the usual Lightroom training that most of us can always use.

We also love the charity aspect of this bundle and look forward to the contributions the Canon Rumors readers make to this great bundle and its charities.
