Katie & Jamal spending their Saturday afternoon walking around Prospect Park in Brooklyn New York. Thank you guys for being such an amazing couple and so easy to photograph.
Thank you William for helping me with the Off Camera Flash.
Earlier this month, I mentioned that I received Disc One of the PhotoVision 2010 Video Seminar (DVD 79). So I finally finished watching it the other day. What do I think of it so far? A little boring. Somewhat disappointed. Actually I fell asleep. HAHAH! Nothing against or anything bad about the photographers. The information were very informative. I felt they (PhotoVision) could have made it more interesting, a little more exciting. Bad editing maybe? or bad host? I dunno. A few times I did asked myself how long do i have to sit here to watch this. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Hopefully Disc Two will be better. I am looking forward to seeing what Mike Fulton at Tricoast will do. I always love his work.
Fact: Two more days until our vacation begins.
After the announcement of a small bug on firmware 2.0.3 yesterday, Canon just releases the 5D Mark II Firmware 2.0.4 which is now available for download. Come and get it.
Just wanted to give everyone a quick heads-up about the new Canon 5D Mark II Firmware 2.0.3 since I mentioned to you all the other day. Here’s what they said on their website:
Recently we have discovered a malfunction that occurs with Firmware Version 2.0.3, in which the manual recording levels for C1/C2/C3 are changed and the camera becomes unable to record audio if the power is turned off (or if Auto power off takes effect) after registering “Sound Recording: Manual” in the camera user settings.
We apologize very sincerely for the inconvenience, but we are going to stop making this firmware available for download. For customers who have already updated to the new firmware, when using the camera with the mode dial set to C1/C2/C3, please either set the sound recording settings to Auto.
We are currently preparing firmware that will correct this malfunction. As soon as those preparations have been completed, we will let you know on this Web site. In the meantime, we apologize for the inconvenience this represents, but please wait until the fixed firmware is ready.
Fact: Never let anything or anyone get in the way between you and your family.
41 years ago today was the happiest day for the Lo Family… 41 years later we are still happy to be the Lo Family. Thank you mom for bringing me into this world.
… and Happy St. Patty’s Day to everyone.
Fact: I have NEVER ever worn “green” on this day.
Canon just released the long awaited firmware update for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II that will or should I say finally gives this camera the cinema feel 23.97 (24p) frame rate and the manual audio controls. If you haven’t done so yet, you need to update your camera now. You can download it at http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/firm-e/eos5dmk2/firmware.html.
So what was added in this firmware? Here’s a small list (my list)
- Adds 24 fps (23.976 fps) to 1920×1080
- Manual Audio Control
- Add Tv and Av to the shooting mode.
- The ability to display the Histogram in live view when shooting.
- Audio sampling rate changed to 48 KHz
If you like to learn more, please visit http://www.usa.canon.com/dlc/controller?act=GetArticleAct&articleID=3287 with much more details and information on this 2.0.3 firmware for the Canon 5D Mark II
I’ll post a sample video later this week using the 24fps.
Btw, if you are having a problem downloading the firmware due to heavy traffic, shoot me an email and I will get you the file. Thanks Chris for posting the file to download.
