Ask Engadget: best lens for wedding photography?

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Image

We know you’ve got questions, and if you’re brave enough to ask the world for answers, here’s the outlet to do so. This week’s Ask Engadget inquiry is coming to us from Van, who needs some help recording his sister’s wedding. If you’re looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

“I’m supposed to be shooting my sister’s wedding in June, with an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception. I’ve got a Canon T2i (550D, non-Americans) with the kit 18-55mm lens and a 50mm f.18 prime lens. I’m looking for suggestions for an additional lens I could rent for the day, would a 200mm or a telephoto be worth it? Also, if anyone can suggest a good filter for an afternoon shoot, that’d be very welcome. Thanks!”

That’s the second wedding-related query we’ve had this year — there must be something in the water. We’re sure plenty of you want to help Van’s sister’s big day go perfectly, so any photogs, camera buffs and bridezillas with an opinion, please add them below.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III’s light leak fix found to be black tape

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

ImageWhen Canon promised a fix for the EOS 5D Mark III‘s preview LCD leaking light, photographers wondered just what the “countermeasures” would be to prevent the display from affecting exposure readouts. The remedy, it turns out, is a simple patch — of the physical kind, not software. Roger Cicala at LensRentals was brave enough to tear down one of the DSLRs shipping with a fix already in place and found black electrical tape covering the LCD area that would otherwise spill light into the exposure meter. While basic, the solution does the trick, and will no doubt be a relief to shutterbugs who want to know exactly what exposure they’ll get while snapping photos in the dark.

Google Cloud Print adds FedEx, Canon to remote printing roster, throws Android users a PDF bone

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Image

Chrome users are in store for a bundle of printing perks today courtesy of a recent update to Google Cloud Print. In addition to wirelessly sending documents to nearby printers, Mountain View’s now adding FedEx to the drop down destination list, granting users the ability to obtain retrieval codes for use at any of that shipping service’s locations across the U.S. The remote printing feature has also gained an additional device partner, enlisting Canon into the ranks of participating companies, occupied by the likes of Epson, Kodak and HP. And as an extra bonus for the Android faithful, handsets and tablets sporting the search giant’s Ice Cream Sandwich OS will now be able to receive and display transmitted docs as PDFs, although you’ll need to install the beta version of the company’s mobile browser to take advantage of this seamless integration. Open OS, meet the closed-off cloud.

Canon shows off prototype 30-inch 4K reference display, won’t put a price tag on love

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Image

With 4K cameras suddenly popping up everywhere we look at NAB 2012, it’s little surprise that Canon is showing off this matching 30-inch prototype intended for the very professionals tasked with mastering video shot by its latest hardware. Like the retina display, it produces an effect where no matter how close you’re standing it’s still impossible to pick out the individual pixels, and easily matched what we’d seen from a prototype 20-inch 4K LCD from Panasonic at CES. The people we spoke to who handled some of the work on Canon’s demo footage preferred it to their 2K projectors for the clarity and ability to get pixel accurate representations of the source material, plus it probably fits more easily into a production suite. The big question from all who see this in person is when will it be available and for how much, and while Canon says it’s due to ship this year, we’re on our own to speculate about the (surely astronomical) price.

TextSpresso machine brews caffeinated goodness via text messaging (video)

TextSpresso machine lets geeks remotely brew caffeinated goodness via text messages (video)

The folks at Zipwhip may have unwittingly discovered a new business model. While the company is primarily focused on cloud messaging services, it’s recently created an espresso maker that allows employees to whip up custom brews from the comfort of their mobile phone. Known as TextSpresso, it’s based on the Jura Impressa XS90, but unlike the retail model, the machine accepts orders via SMS. As if that weren’t enough, it’s part of a larger system that’s capable of printing employee names onto the foam (using edible ink) and then placing the drink onto a warming tray. TextSpresso is very much a custom job, but if you’d like an inside peek of the system — complete with servo motors, an Arduino microcontroller and a retro-fitted Canon printer — be sure to hop the break and dream of what could be.

Sony to launch NEX-FS700E 4K cinema camera for $9,000 at NAB?

Friday, March 30th, 2012
Image

What would you pay for the ability to capture cinema quality 4K video? $36,000? $18,000? Try $9,000. That’s the expected price of Sony’s rumored NEX-FS700E, which could launch at NAB next month with a June ship date. EOSHD reports that the camera will pipe 4K video to a dedicated external recorder over 3G HD-SDI. It will reportedly use the same NEX E-mount as its predecessor, the FS100, and may include a trio of neutral density filters to increase versatility. We haven’t been able to track down an image of the rumored cinema cam (the model in that image above looks identical to the FS100), but we wouldn’t be surprised to see another detail or two leak out before the broadcast community’s annual Vegas gathering kicks off in a little over two weeks. For its part, Canon is also expected to announce a 4K EOS-format DSLR at NAB, as a less-expensive alternative to the $16,000 C300, while RED’s Scarlet already has 4K capabilities, and a $9,000 price tag.

[Thanks, Andrew]

Ask Engadget: using an iPad as a remote viewfinder?

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

We know you’ve got questions, and if you’re brave enough to ask the world for answers, here’s the outlet to do so. This week’s Ask Engadget inquiry is from is from William who is looking for an solution to the problem of badly designed public spaces. If you’re looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

“Hi guys. I’m getting married in a church with a weird split-hall design. The result is that half of the attendees won’t be able to see the ceremony at all! I’m wondering if I could hook up my Canon Rebel T3i up to my 3rd-generation iPad and use it as a quick-and-dirty closed-circuit display? There’s no WiFi in the location, so it has to be a wired solution too. Please help me!”

It’s an interesting request and that’s why we’re here: solving those problems that three minutes on Google just can’t. So, dear friends, what say you? Wish the soon-to-be-wed couple all the best by adding a helpful solution to the comment feed and spread a little joy.

Mercedes slaps sheet of LEDs on the side of an F-Cell, turns car into a chameleon

Mercedes F-Cell gets LED camouflage

It’s not often that folks want to hide the fact that they’re driving a Mercedes, what with plenty of them being among of the finest motorcars on the road. However, as part of a marketing plan to call attention to its zero-emissions F-Cell model, the German marque swathed a side of one in LEDs to give it the ultimate in camouflage. You see, in addition to that makeshift display, a Canon 5D Mark II was mounted on the other side of the car so that video of its surroundings could be shown on the LED bodywork — rendering the car all but invisible to onlookers, as long as they’re staring at the left side, of course. Go ahead, head on down to see the camouflage magic for yourself in the video after the break.

Nikon confirms 36.3 megapixel D800, we go hands-on

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Thirty six megapixels. That’s the native resolution of Nikon’s long-awaited FX-format digital SLR. The D800 was designed with all professional photographers in mind, but with 36.3-megapixel captures (yes, that also means 36.3 megapixels in RAW, or 15.4 in DX format), the Japanese camera maker’s latest DSLR output is likely to far exceed the needs of many. It also limits low-light shooting capabilities — the D800 is a full-frame camera, but even so, with a standard sensor capturing 36.3 megapixels, its high-ISO performance is unlikely to match the likes of the D4, or Canon’s new 1D X. It’s for this reason that Nikon limited the camera’s top native sensitivity to ISO 6400, or 25,600 in Hi2 extended mode. Want to see more? Thumb through the gallery below and jump past the break for a closer look at the latest full-frame DSLR to hit the market.
