Lumera is the Cool New Product Trying to Get Funding

"Lumera is a new device for photography enthusiasts that connects to DSLR cameras (a new kind of swiss army knife). When people buy a camera, they usually buy a fixed set of features and if they want upgrades they have to buy a new camera. Lumera closes this gap introducing a device with upgradeable software that helps to keep cameras up to date and makes it smarter by connecting them with phones. Lumera adds Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a second contextual screen, navigation and one-click action buttons for sharing on-line, geotagging (optional built-in GPS), back-up on the go, a secondary USB port for external drives storage and a bunch of software utilities for a dumb DSLR camera."

Check out the promo below.

If you think the project sounds promising you can show your support by helping them out on Kickstarter.

Canon 7D Mark ii Tutorial Training Video Update

As we are getting so many requests for information, I wanted to post and let you know that all the principle shooting and voice overs for our Canon 7Dii Tutorial Training Video was completed yesterday and we are now in the final post-processing editing stages.

Based on past experience, I would say we are looking at a download release in the next 4-5 days, I are aiming for Wednesday of next week. The focusing system lesson is much longer than it has ever been, simply because there is so much more to cover, and we also expect the video to be well over 4 hours of lessons, which is the max the DVDs will hold. We have figured out how to fit about 4.5 hours on our DVDs but that is the max.

Look for a release announcement to be posted sometime next week. Thank you for your patience and support!

Photographer Captures Video of Bear Extremely Up Close and Personal

Normally a close encounter with a large grizzly bear would be an altogether terrifying experience. For photographer Drew Hamilton is was as calm and peaceful as anything you could imagine. This gigantic bear quietly strolled up and took a little break near the river just feet from Hamilton. The bear seemingly lethargic and unimpressed with Hamilton's presence yawns a bit and moves on.

The video was taken at Alaska's McNeil River State Game Sanctuary. Apparently the bears are quite comfortable with humans around and makes for unparalleled photographic opportunities. The sanctuary gets thousands of applications for visits per year but only a select few actually get in. Check out the incredible video below.
