Years in the making, the Canon 5D Mark IV is finally official and ships in a couple weeks (September 8 to be exact). If you’ve been following the rumor mill, there isn’t really much of a surprise here. It has everything we’ve expected and looks pretty good across the board. [Read more…]
In this video from Phlearn, Aaron Nace walks through how to place a logo behind a person in Photoshop. The process is pretty straightforward but can vary in the level of complexity depending on how detailed the background is. You’ll need to select the subject from the background using something like the magic wand or the pen tool. Then, you’ll create a layer mask for your logo or text layer from the selection. At that point, you’ll be able to place your logo partially behind the subject. Check out the full video above for the complete walkthrough.
Amazon dropped the price on the Nikon D750 from $1996.95 down to $1696.95. This is the “ships from and sold by Amazon.com” offer. It’s still $1996 everywhere else.
This does not appear to be a gray market or refurbished item. It is listed as new and with a full Nikon USA warranty.
The price drop has caused the D750 to drop from a bestselling rank of 400-500 down to the top 80 in the Camera & Photo department. Not sure how long this will last but if you want a deal on the D750, you should jump on this one. Check it out here at Amazon.com.
Tamron has announced the SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro lens for the Sony A-Mount. It offers a max 1:1 magnification, Tamron’s USD AF motor and full-time manual focus.
We knew the lens would be coming when Tamron announced the Canon and Nikon versions earlier this year. The new Sony version differs from the Canon and Nikon models only by the absence of built-in Vibration Compensation due to sensor-based image stabilization in Sony A-mount bodies. The Sony version carries the same $649 price tag though.
The new Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro should ship next week and is available for pre-order here at B&H Photo.
[UPDATE 8/25/16: The Canon 5D Mark IV has been officially announced and will ship September 8. Check it out here at B&H Photo.]
We’ve been talking about the Canon 5D Mark IV for so long, it’s hard to believe that the camera is almost here. The amount of images and specs that have now leaked and corroborated among several outlets leave the official announcement as a mere formality.
The camera should be announced next week and is expected to be available within a month. As such, it should be a monster seller.
So, what is the fuss about?
Pretty much everything we’ve reasonably asked for… [Read more…]
ebay (via PhotoVideo4Less) has the Nikon D7200 for $749 (reg. $1196.95). Check it out here on ebay.
For more info on the camera, check out my Nikon D7200 Review.
Note: This is likely a gray market camera and may not qualify for Nikon USA warranty service. ebay seller PhotoVideo4Less has a positive feedback rating of 99.9% at the time of this post.
It appears that legit final specs for the Canon 5D Mark IV are starting to leak out via Canon Rumors with a couple of interesting departures from what we’ve seen in the past. Notably, a 30MP full frame sensor and no CFast card slot are features that are likely to stir the pot of opinions among Canon shooters.
Canon 5D Mark IV Specs
- Compact Flash/SD Card Slots (No CFast)
- 24/30fps @ 4K
- 60fps @ 1080
- 120fps @ 720
- USB 3
- Cable release port moved to the front of the camera where the “Mark XX” badge was.
- A lot more touchscreen functionality than the EOS-1D X Mark II
- Other ergonomic changes, such as a new “locking switch” on the rear of the camera.
Canon Rumors says it expects to receive more details on the upcoming Mark IV over the next few days. If you recall, we expect the official announcement date to be August 25, 2016.
If these reportedly leaked specs are true, what do you think about the 5D Mark IV so far?
