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 also have a very intriguing deal for our European readers:
If you’re looking for the best price here’s a code that gives you the 1DC at an unrivalled 8250€

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).
A. F. Marcotec sells professional filmmaking equipment in Europe and has some of the most competitive prices in the market.

Enter the code at checkout. The camera starts shipping now and they have some pieces left.
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.
Just received this in my mail from the Magic Lantern team:
“Yes, that’s true. Our young team member g3gg0 did the impossible, and solved the 7D puzzle within days of receiving the camera from Trammell Hudson (on September 12).
Background: Trammell Hudson started to port Magic Lantern on 7D three years ago. While he was able to run user code using the firmware update procedure, he was not able to run it in parallel with Canon firmware – which was required for Magic Lantern to run as an add-on software, without replacing the main firmware. Since then, we had little or no idea about how to solve this puzzle, until last week, when g3gg0 had an Aha! moment and discovered how to load Canon firmware from autoexec.bin code.
The first analysis shows that porting is straightforward (more or less), and most features will work without major code changes, as Magic Lantern does not have to run on both DIGIC processors. Basic features such as zebra and focus peaking are already working, so you may expect an alpha version to be available 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.

Why is it more expensive in Europe? Because we have taxes.
