Fotobug - Episode 164 - Vanelli Sports Portraits

September 4th, 2016

The Black Hills Photo Shootout is right around the corner!

In recent news, Canon will bring a new Wi-Fi connectivity option to the EOS 7D II, 5DS and 5DS by way of an adapter that fits into the camera's SD slot.  Edelkrome has launched Wing, a non-motorized sliding armature that attaches to a tripod and glides a camera in a straight line without rails.  Google has developed a way to use neural networks to compress image files in a more efficient way that current compression methods.  The new Canon 5D MK IV reportedly has a rolling shutter issues, especially when recording in 4K. The Boulder/Telluride Photo Festival was cancelled at the last minute and email notifications went out the day it was to begin. See below if you had registered for the Photo Festival as we are offering those photographers a discount for The Black Hills Photo Shootout.  FInally, Eye-fi relented and released a Windows as well as a Mac version of software for X2 cards!
