2022-03-17 Firmware update soon.

Canon has unveiled plans for a new EOS 5D Mark III firmware designed to enhance shooting and improve video workflow.

The new firmware enables HDMI output functionality, ideal for professional videographers, as well as improved AF performance for photographers shooting with telephoto lenses.

Following feedback from cinema and TV production professionals, the new firmware includes ‘clean’ HDMI output, enhancing overall video editing and monitoring procedures. Videographers will be able to output high-definition uncompressed video data (YCbCr 4:2:2, 8 bit) without any embedded icons or symbols, from the EOS 5D Mark III to an external recorder using the camera’s HDMI terminal. The new functionality will enable easier editing of data with minimal image degradation for greater on-site workflow efficiency during production, as well as the option to record to the internal memory card at the same time.

The enhanced features also include outputting of time code over HDMI to an external recorder, as well as the ability to synchronise start and stop of video capture with the start and stop of recording to an external device*. The new firmware also enables real-time output to external monitors, ideally suited for on-set monitoring by the wider production team.

The new firmware also adds improved AF performance when capturing still images, opening up more advanced shooting possibilities for photographers. When using a lens and extender, resulting in a maximum f/8 aperture, the new firmware enables the camera to utilise the EOS 5D Mark III’s central dual cross-type focal points, currently only available up to an f/5.6 aperture. The new capabilities allow sports and nature photographers to use AF when getting closer to distant subjects, achieving precision detail when using telephoto lenses.

The firmware will be free to download from April 2013.

2021-12-18 Fiji trip for £10

Fiji trip for £10 !!

Charity travel lottery. Here are the details of how you enter.

Courtesy of the lovely people over at Tourism Fiji, we have a holiday for two to Fiji up for grabs, including 11 night’s accommodation, return flights from the UK, internal transfers within Fiji and a spot of diving, total value is somewhere in the region of £6000-£7000. All you need to do is rock up to the airport with your passport and your travel companion of choice!
So, we’ve set up a public lottery, with this holiday as the prize. Tickets are £10 each, you can enter as many times as you want…. Although we will only be issuing 2000 tickets.
All the proceeds from the lottery will be added to my annual fund raising drive for Marie-Curie Cancer Care (http://www.mariecurie.org.uk) and Bite-Back Shark and Marine Conservation (http://www.bite-back.com). We have £14,000 in the pot all ready for 2012 from other events, we’re hoping the lottery will double that total to bring it up to £28,000.
Tickets are on sale until December 31st (or until they run out), the draw will take place on the 2nd January.
Last time I checked, we had only issued 500 tickets, so there are still plenty available. This email is going out to 500 people that I know… so if you all buy just three tickets each, not only will we sell out and smash my fund raising target, there will also be a 75% chance of me picking up the phone to somebody I know on January 2nd to tell them they are heading off to Fiji….
For further details and to buy your tickets, please head over to;

2021-11-01 New Camera launched

The pace of camera design, re-design, and release quickens. Lighter, smaller, faster, sooner. More K, more speed, better ergonomics, promising pictures.

Today, Sony reveals their new F55 and F5 cameras. Expect to see prototypes shooting on locations near you. Working cameras ship in January 2013. Some have called the F55 a companion to the F65, and the F5 an upgrade beyond F3. Many will call them Sony’s first comfortably shoulder-resting, modular, compact 4K cameras.
