Canon 7D Mark II Finally Arrives, Plus New Lenses From Sigma, Canon & Tamron | Photo Talk

Canon 7D Mark II Finally Arrives, Plus New Lenses From Sigma, Canon & Tamron
   Another busy week and so much new gear getting announced at Photokina. After a long wait the Canon EOS 7D Mark II has finally hit the market with many new improvements. Plus Sigma, Canon and Tamron all announce some really fantastic lenses that everyone is sure to love. Lets talk about these and I will give you my first impressions.

About this topic:

   More great products have been announced over the course of this past week, but none of them more talked about then the long awaited Canon EOS 7D Mark II[1], with its 65 point all cross-type AF system, 20.2 MP sensor and dual Digic 6 processors, this bad boy can kick out 10 frames per second shooting and so much more. Sigma was also shining with many new lenses including not one but two versions of their new 150-600mm lenses in both Contemporary[2] and Sports[3] categories, as well as a new super zoom lens with a 18-300mm[4] focal range. The new 7D mII wasn't the only new item from Canon, as they also announced three new lenses. A new budget oriented STM lens for full frame cameras, the EF 24-105mm STM[5], which is their first zoom STM lens for full frame. Then another new STM lens, the EF-S 24mm[6] which appears to have great optical performance looking at the MTF charts. Plus they released a new super telephoto 400mm DO lens[7]. Last but not least Tamron announced a new SP 15-30mm f/2.8 lens[8] for full frame that promises to potentially have some very good optical performance. With all this information, I was barely was able to fit it all in one video.

Learn How To Setup Identity Plate & Watermarks In Lightroom 5 | Video Tutorial

Branding is important for business growth and this tutorial will help you start setting up Adobe Lightroom 5's identity plate, plus step you through adding watermarks with in Lightroom's built in watermark tools to display your branding and copyrights on your images.


About this tutorial:

   This is another tutorial were I am focusing on the ins and outs of Adobe Lightroom. So many tutorials show photographers how to work in the develop module, but few show anything else about Lightroom. So I am going through every detail of Lightroom and teaching about every detail of the program. In this video tutorial I focus on two things, the Identity Plate and Watermarks. Now I have combined these for two reasons, one they are both about branding and two the ID plate tutorial would be ridiculously short. But since they are simple, I am at least able to provide solid setup detail for anyone needing to use these features in Lightroom 5.
