New Flickr Android App

Flickr has unveiled its first official Android app, two years after releasing an iPhone app.

The new Android app is described as a “shoot-and-share” app that lets users shoot with the in-app camera, enhance the photos with various filters and then simultaneously upload the photos to Flickr and share them instantly with friends on Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, via email, blogs and more, all straight from the app.

By hitting the market now, Flickr for Android could take some air out of Instagram’s upcoming Android debut.

Lightroom 3.5 and Camera Raw 6.5 Now Available

Adobe has just released a free update for users of Lightroom, along with a Camera Raw update.

Lightroom 3.5 includes bug fixes, new camera support and new lens profiles.

Generally it’s a good idea to upgrade however if you shoot tethered to a Mac platform running OS 10.7 with a Canon 5D, Rebel XT or 20D, you can no longer shoot tethered with this update.

Something New from Canon?

A big announcement from Canon is scheduled for November 3. An “historic global announcement” is what Canon is calling it. Will it be the long anticipated and in the eyes of many, long overdue 5D Mark III? Who knows, but given the location of the press conference (Hollywood), it will most likely be the much rumored EF and PL mount camcorder with a Super 35mm sensor.

UPDATE  : Canon is now asking technology journalists to save the date of October 26 for a big announcement in New York City regarding EOS cameras and PIXMA printers. Interesting times ahead!
