I love finding shortcuts for working with software like Photoshop, Premiere and the like. Anything that saves me time and mouse-clicks is a big win in my book. Check out the above short video for a quick tip on setting up auto-select for the targeted adjustment tool across several adjustment layers in Photoshop. All those clicks add up over time.
Check out the above video from PiXimperfect in which you can learn how to use the “Color Burn” and “Color Dodge” blend modes together in Photoshop to boost the shadows and the highlights along with adding a punch of color to it.
Fuji has announced its new GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR lens for the medium format GFX system, which presently includes the Fuji GFX 50S and GFX 50R camera bodies. The lens offers a 35mm equivalent focal range of 79-158mm in a relatively compact design. It is weather-proof with the ability to operate in temperatures down to 14 °F and is sealed to resist dust and moisture.
The lens is made up of 20 elements in 13 groups including two super Extra Low Dispersion Glass lenses and one aspherical lens to reduce chromatic and field curvature aberrations. The new lens is compatible with the GF1.4X TC WR, which extends the telephoto shooting range to 140-280mm (equivalent to 111-221mm in 35mm format).
The Fuji GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR lens will be available in late February 2019 in $1,999.95. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

Sigma has released new information regarding compatibility of its lenses with the Canon EOS R.
I’ve posted the entire statement below; however, I wanted to note a little bit of anecdotal evidence on the topic. I’m currently testing the EOS R and have used it with the base EF adapter and Sigma lenses in my normal operating manner. Even with 15-year-old Sigma lenses, my results have been just fine. There may be some edge-case uses that I haven’t attempted yet that end up throwing me for a loop – but so far, so good.
Read on for the full compatibility notice from Sigma below. [Read more…]
