Have you tried out the new Lightroom 4 Beta? It’s free and will run until the end of March. I’ve been playing around with it for a few weeks now and I’m impressed with some of the features they’ve added, especially the color temperature adjustment brush. This change alone has convinced me to buy the new version as soon as it is released. (anytime after March most likely)
Adobe has provided some answers to questions Lightroom 4 Beta users have on this site :
Canon today filed a US Patent Application for raw video recording. Exciting news for video shooters who have been waiting for raw video image capture like the Red Epic produces. Now it’s just a matter of when we see it and in what cameras…maybe in the Canon 5D Mark V?
Take a look at what the developers at Adobe are working on with the latest Camera Raw and a brief look at the new Photoshop interface.
No more fill and recover tools, instead they are replaced by highlights and shadows. Just a name change? Most likely not judging by the same move Adobe made in the new Lightroom 4 public beta. Have had some time using these new tools and they are a significant improvement over fill and recover. The coolest feature however is the expanded adjustment brush menu. You can now paint in temperature changes within your image!
Nikon’s D700 is now officially listed as discontinued on the Nikon website
. (Website is in Japanese)
However…why has the D300s been added to the same discontinued list? Is there something in the works to replace it???
