I sat down with Jimmy Beltz over at PhotoTips earlier this week as part of his weekly podcast series. We talked about my recent trip to CES 2013 and some of the new gear that was shown there.
Jimmy and I also talked about what might be happening with upcoming cameras from Canon and Nikon, as well as a little bit of my backstory with Photography Bay. If you make it through all 45 minutes of my Tennessee accent, kudos to you. Show notes for the stuff we talked about are here at PhotoTips.

Canon has issued a product advisory for the Canon 6D relating to the inability for movies shot on the 6D to playback on YouTube. This appears to be aimed at users who pull a card out of their camera and upload directly to YouTube.
The fix (for now) is to save the file via ImageBrowser EX and then upload to YouTube. If you already go through an editing and exporting process for your HDSLR videos, then you don’t need to worry about this problem.

FxFactory 4.0 is now available and adds support for Adobe Premiere Pro. The plug-in management program has been a great tool for using with FCP X, Motion, FCP 7 and After Effects; however, the one video editing program that I use the most hasn’t been supported and, as a result, I’ve not been able to take advantage of so many cool video plug-ins. But now it is.
FxFactory 4.0 is a free download and there are a few free plug-ins that are available with it. Additional plug-ins are available for trial and purchase with integration inside of FxFactory.
You can download FxFactory 4.0 from Noise Industries’ website.
