The price of the EOS-M has dropped several times this year. Now that the much more expensive Sony a7 has proven to have its flaws it might be a good time to consider the most affordable HDSLR again: Now it’s at $299 including the 18-55mm kit lens.
That’s a really nice deal considering that it’s basically a Canon T4i/650D...
The 25p firmware rumored this week is a reality, but it won’t be coming before April.
The 1DC is causing a lot of buzz on the net due the nice videos coming from the camera both in 4K as well as in super35 crop mode.
With 25p this camera will be one hard to beat rival in the affordable large sensor camera market.
We’ll have more footage to show soon.
We’ve got another nice deal for our European readers: Canon’s new flagship cinemaeos camera the EOS C500 started shipping today we’ve got a nice discount code to get a little of that priceload off. As far as I know this is the cheapest offer in the EU from a trustworthy seller.
A. F. Marcotec, based in Germany, gives us an exclusive 500€ discount for the C500 (does 120fps and 4K RAW).

Oh well finally! Just as the 5D and some other popular Canon HDSLR’s the 7D has finally been firmware hacked by the Magic Lantern Team to provide some additional features and improve the codec.
The 7D keeps getting better by the minute. After the anti aliasing filter and Canon’s manual audio upgrade this seems to be third major step for this popular HDSRL camera and it seems to be coming quite soon.

Adobe is really pushing their Creative Cloud now that CS6 is out since May.
Maybe they didn’t get as many subscriptions as they intended to get, maybe this whole cloud thing is just too new and complicated for people to really pick it up.
Anyway, they’re now really driving the ad mill and throwing out a deal until the end of August. You’ve got to own any previous Adobe CS app (CS3 or higher) and they give you $29.95/month instead of $49.95/month for the whole first year.
Adobe Creative Cloud explained (again):
Basically is the whole Creative Suite (CS6 as the real apps!) with some advanced cloud sharing features (like Apple iCloud), but you’re paying on a monthly basis, just as long as you use the Suite, much like an App Store if you will.
The cloud version of CS6 will set you back $600 $360 (with August deal) a year while the retail version of the whole bundle (“Master Collection“) is $2599 and the lighter, filmmaking oriented package “Production Premium CS6” is $1799. And since we can expect another next version next year anyway that’s a pretty good deal for a serious suite like that.
The downside is that you cannot use the cloud on a month-by-month basis, so you cannot only use it during September while editing and save the money cause you’re out shooting during October.
Maybe Adobe wants to take over the disappointed Final Cut Pro people before Final Cut Pro X really takes off (if ever). It’s a fact that you’ve got to put in more braincells to learn CS6 than any Apple product.

While our backend is still messed up and the comments for new articles are disabled I’ll take the time to throw in a reminder for something that needs no comment: Adobe’s promo deal (whichs only purpose is to strengthen our will to switch to their system) will end in 2 and a half days.
The introduction of Final Cut Pro X has put a surprising end to the Final Cut Pro editing suite era as for many the term “Pro” doesn’t fit anymore.
We’ve talked about it, we’ve made fun of it and we’ve experienced it and many of us don’t like it.
Remember the Apple switch ads? Looks like something was fishy about Ellen Feiss after all! Well here we are either waiting for FCP11, sticking with FCP7 (in fear of its expiration date), going to Avid MC or switching (back) to good old Premiere Pro. This is what I decided to do. If the latter is also your pick you might want to consider Adobe’s promo which will give you 50% off on their Adobe Production Premium CS 5.5 and Premiere Pro CS 5.5 standalone products.
Here are the links and at the bottom you’ll find some Premiere video tutorials specifically made for FCP switchers.
