Sekonic has announced the release of new Data Transfer Software for the L-758DR
exposure meter. The software is used to create and edit camera exposure profiles
and then transfer them to the L-758DR for extremely accurate control of exposure.
Along with the sensor's dynamic range, it records the unique variations of your
digital camera, such as the effects of shutter speed and aperture mechanisms
as well as the characteristics of the lens in use.

Direct Source Marketing, the U.S. distributor for medium and large format Horseman
and Rolleiflex professional cameras, has announced the MiniDigi AF 5.0, a three-inch
high, fully functional digital replica of the original and classic twin reflex
camera. In 2006, Rolleiflex introduced the original MiniDigi, which looked like
the original but, due to popular demand quickly sold out. The new MiniDigi AF
(auto focus) 5.0 has been given some significant performance upgrades, including
a 3 megapixel CMOS sensor; auto focus (between 10CM and infinity); and a clear
1.1 inch TFT, which is located at the top of the camera as it is on the full-sized
Rolleiflex TLR.



It
is available through specialty retailers. Pricing is expected to be $399 MSRP.

The following was posted recently on the Adobe blog page site:



The Lightroom 1.4 update for Mac and Windows has been temporarily removed from
the Adobe.com web site. Those Lightroom users who have installed Lightroom 1.4
should uninstall the update and install Lightroom 1.3.1.(Mac, Win) until a further
update can be provided. For those not in immediate need of the updated camera
support available in Camera Raw 4.4 or the DNG 4.4 Converter, it's recommended
that you also continue working with the 4.3.1 versions. (Mac, Win) This decision
is based on the following errors that have been discovered with the recent update:



EXIF Time Stamp Error: There is an error in the EXIF time stamp
update technology that causes Lightroom to believe that the files are out of
sync with the correct time stamp as displayed in Lightroom. Any ensuing metadata
update will attempt to incorrectly modify the EXIF time stamp in the original
raw file itself. This is the only metadata field that Lightroom will write to
an original proprietary raw file. This error will not impact the integrity of
your image data. The Camera Raw plug-in also will incorrectly change the EXIF
time stamp in files converted by the plug-in. The information written to the
XMP sidecar files or XMP metadata in the converted files will remain correct.



DNG Conversion Error(Windows Only): With the latest version
of the Lightroom 1.4 and Camera Raw 4.4 applications, Adobe has included technology
to verify that the image data in a DNG file is unchanged from when it was originally
converted to DNG. Unfortunately, when converting to DNG using Lightroom 1.4
on Windows, the application will write an incorrect verification tag to describe
the image data. When Lightroom attempts to work with those files in the Develop
module, the application reads that incorrect tag, believes that there is something
wrong with the raw data and will present an error. Rest assured, there is nothing
wrong with the integrity of your image data or metadata. For those that have
already converted their files to DNG using Lightroom 1.4(Windows only) we recommend
using the DNG 4.3.1 converter to convert the DNG files you've created
with Lightroom 1.4.



Olympus Conversion Error: There is an error in converting Olympus
JPEG files to other formats in Lightroom 1.4 and the Camera Raw 4.4 plug-in.




To uninstall Lightroom 1.4 please see the instructions per your platform: Mac:
Delete the Lightroom application in the Application folder(Mac) and Delete the
following file: Library/Receipts/Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.pkg Windows: Choose
the Uninstall Lightroom 1.4 menu item from the Windows start menu. The Add/Remove
Program utility on Windows will also achieve the same result.

A few years ago, on a hot summer afternoon, I was roaming the streets of New York City when I came across a lively group of domino players. They had set up a table on the corner of 91st and Amsterdam and were enjoying a game in the shade. Charmed by the scene, I watched from a distance while I built up the courage to ask if I could photograph them. I knew I couldn't let...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was all about cityscapes and how we associate a city with the grandeur of its buildings and how the architecture defines its space. Yes, cities have millions of stories within them, but when you step back and view it from a distance it's about its profile and the face it presents to the world. Readers responded with mostly idealized...
