Photography News: DAM Videos, 1D III, 580EX II

  • My review of Peter Krogh’s DAM Book Workflow Video Training CDs is now available over on The Online Photographer. If you haven’t read The DAM Book, it’s highly recommended.
  • Just in from rob galbraith and dpreview.com: Canon has announced the EOS 1D Mark III, a 10 megapixel camera with a 1.3x crop sensor. Sports and wildlife shooters will drool when they hear it can shoot 10 frames per second. A few other key improvements include: Dual Digic III processors, integrated cleaning system, ISO 6400, a 3.0″ LCD with live preview, and a wider brighter viewfinder.
  • The 580EX II and 16-35/2.8L II have been announced. I can’t wait to see the performance of the new 16-35mm lens on full frame. And the 580EX II has an external PC jack, which means it’s compatible with Pocket Wizards — no adapters required. And if the 16-35/2.8L II is sharp in the corners, I’ll be able to do 90% of my shooting with 2 lenses (the other one being an 85/1.2L).
