Adobe Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC 2018 Announced

So the rumors were true and Adobe did, in fact, release a new version of Lightroom, which is broken down into CC and CC classic. This CC seems to be geared toward professionals that want to access all of there pictures and edits everywhere, while CC classic is more local storage based. I am currently installing my copy and I will give it a try, but uploading all of my photos to the cloud is going to take a long time. This update is going to be make or break for Adobe because many do not like the subscription model. Companies like ON1 might grow quite a bit because of this move. I wish Adobe allowed access to other cloud platforms so that prices could be competitive. You can watch more videos about the new features in Lightroom CC on Adobe’s Youtube Channel here.

TCSTV: Panasonic GH5 Long Term Review

TCSTV does an extended review of the Panasonic GH5 and it’s a worthy upgrade. In fact, the Panasonic GH5 is so good that TCSTV stopped using the Sony FS5/FS7 in favor of using the significantly smaller Panasonic GH5. Panasonic has removed the necessity to use an external recorder, but it’s always nice to have a big screen for checking focus etc… The IBS is also a game changer that almost makes a gimble unnecessary. TCSTV no longer uses a monopod or gimble to film their episodes, which is surprising. They also address AF-C and how it has improved but is still not competitive with fast glass. If you want to hear about photography it starts at the 23 minutes and 30 seconds, which is almost all positive. Basically, it’s the best camera for under 10k.

Olympus Registers New Camera

Nokishita caught Olympus registering a new camera that they believe might be the E-PL 9.

IM008

  • Taiwan NCC (※ Link destination PDF)
  • Company name: Olympus Corporation
  • Product Type: Digital Camera
  • Battery: BLS-50
  • Battery charger: BCS-5
  • USB cable: CB-USB 12

Olympus’ unpublished camera was registered on Taiwan NCC on October 13. Because the battery is BLS – 50, is it E – PL 9 unless it is a new series?

Panasonic GH-5 Firmware 2.1, VLog-L Setup, Live Streaming, Color Calibration and More

Panasonic quickly addressed bugs in Firmware 2.1, but now there are other issues that photographers/videographers need to think about like video storage. To fully utilize the Panasonic GH5 you need to use V90 SD cards or a Ninja Inferno. Depending on how much you shoot a Ninja Inferno could become an absolute bargain. There are also videographers claiming that the AF issue has and has not been fixed, which is unfortunate. It’s likely that this complaint will continue to plague the GH5 until the Panasonic GH6 and beyond arrive with a phase detect system so complaints should be taken with a grain of salt.
