Instagram Embraces Landscape and Portrait Formats

In its most important move since the company' acquisition by Facebook, Instagram now allows users to share photos and videos in both portrait and landscape formats, in addition to the much loved/hated square. "Square format has been and always will be part of who we are," the company said in a statement. "That said, the visual story you’re trying to tell should always come first, and we want to make it simple and fun for you to share moments just the way you want to. It turns out that nearly one in five photos or videos people post aren’t in the square format, and we know that it hasn’t been easy to share this type of content on Instagram... We’re especially excited about what this update means for video... which in widescreen can be more cinematic than ever." Instagram has also announced that from now on, all filters will work on all types of media, with intensity adjustments now available on videos as well as stills.

Canon EF 35mm F/1.4L II USM

The  Canon EF 35mm F/1.4L II USM is a new moderate wide-angle lens for 35mm full-frame SLR cameras. This is the world’s first lens to boast the company's exclusive Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics technology, which utilises organic material newly developed by Canon to achieve a higher level of chromatic aberration correction than other existing technologies. The molecular design of BR Optics refracts blue light to a greater degree than other existing optical technologies including UD glass, Super UD glass and Fluorite, to control colour fringing as effectively as possible.In addition to BR Optics, the new lens incorporates two aspherical elements and one UD glass element in a 14 element, 11 group optical formula. The EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM lens also features Canon’s proprietary Sub-Wavelength Structure Coating (SWC), applied to the rear surface of the first and second aspheric lens elements to help combat flare and ghosting. The new Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM lens is scheduled to be available in October 2015, for an estimated retail price of£1799.99 / €2499.99 / $1,799.00.

Canon has announced the CJ12ex4.3B portable 4K 2/3-inch broadcast lens, the world’s first 4K wide-angle lens for use with 4K broadcast cameras featuring 2/3"-type imagers.

The form factor for production shooters will be very similar to shooting with Canon's HD lenses in size, weight and controls. Its light weight of 4lbs, 10oz. and compact size make it ideal for shoulder-mounted Electronic News Gathering applications. “With a 96.3 degree angle of view, our best-in-class wide-angle lens will allow broadcasters to capture more of the scene in stunning 4K quality,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A.
