Newsletter - Oct. 21, 2010

by JamesNYCOctober 21. 2010 14:11
Hello Photographers, Photo Assistants & Digital Techs.

As our industry continues to pick itself up after a hideous 24 months of little to no work thanks to a crap economy; I too am now inundated with photo production work as well as our existing projects for the web sites.
Most notably is the impending completion of our new and completely overhauled database system.

This new Database will be expanded to allow listings for every member of the commercial photo industry as well as offer some features similar to those found on social networking sites, features currently not offered anywhere else that I am aware of; and 1 or 2 features that other industry related sites currently charge you for.

I currently have a dozen people testing it and abusing it thoroughly and expect to launch it in the next 10 days.

Next week is the PhotoPlus Expo at the Jacob Javitz center here in NYC. It's the one time every year I get to see some of my friends now spread out across the country and many of you that I have met over the years either through workshops or through the site or our networking events. So hopefully we'll have a chance to meet again.

I would also like to welcome or new sponsor Leica Camera.
In the coming weeks and months we will be presenting a number of events that will be hosted in part by Leica and maybe even a few surprises.

Meet The Leica S-System

Try The New S Lenses At The Leica Studio in New York City.

EOS 5D Mark II Firmware Update Version 2.0.8

by JamesNYCOctober 19. 2010 15:30

This firmware update (Version 2.0.8) incorporates the following changes and fixes.

  • Fixes a phenomenon in which movies are not taken at the shooting mode registered in the user’s settings if a shooting mode Aperture priority (or Shutter priority) is registered in any of the camera’s user settings (C1, C2, C3) and the user attempts to shoot a movie.
  • Fixes a phenomenon in which the shutter will not release when pressing the shutter button when the auto power off function is set to “on”.
  • Fixes a phenomenon in which overexposure occurs when shooting a Live View shooting simulation with the ISO speed set to L.
  • Fixes a phenomenon in which the settings of the Speedlite transmitter ST-E2 revert to the default settings when both the camera and the ST-E2 are set to auto power off.
