Zacuto now has a new Z-Finder frame that works with the Canon 5D Mark III and Nikon D800. The new frame is compatible with all current Z-Finders, so the new cameras won’t require an entirely new finder.
The new Z-Finder frame retails for $60 and is available at the Zacuto Store and B&H Photo.
Camera Raw 6.7 is officially final and available for download. The latest update includes support for the following camera models: [click to continue…]

[UPDATE: It's live now. Details here.]
I can’t count the number of recent blog posts, reviews and tweets that I’ve seen lamenting over the lack of support for the Canon 5D Mark III in Lightroom 4. All should be well later this week with Adobe’s effort to release a Lightroom 4 update that includes several key bug fixes and adds support for the 5D Mark III.
Chances are that this will be a Release Candidate out of the gate at Adobe Labs with a final update due in a few weeks. I’ll post as soon as I hear more.
This is no real surprise at this point; however, a leaked review from a French publication confirms that the Canon 5D Mark III supports intraframe (ALL-i) compression for an editing-friendly format and interframe (IPB) compression for superior data compression.
Based on what we’ve seen thus far, it’s likely that the 5D Mark III video specs will closely resemble the specs found in the 1D X. Note that the 1D X allows level monitoring on screen and adjustments to audio levels before and during recording of video clips. The presence of a headphone output suggests that the 5D Mark III will take this a step further.
Jury is still out on the HDMI-out; however, there have been no leaks concerning this spec and pretty much everything is out in the open now. Stay tuned over the next few hours for the official unveil.
