New RED Camera Firmware Adds Several Still Photography Features

RED have issued a firmware update for their Epic and Scarlet camera platforms, adding several still photography features. One of these is a new multi-shot mode. In this mode, if you press the red button on the side-handle once, the camera will capture a single frame - but if you keep it depressed, it will record all the frames for the duration you hold down that button. Another new mode is Motion+Stills, which allows users to mark individual frames for extraction while recording video, reducing the amount of time needed to find the perfect one at the post processing stage. Finally, the S-M sliding switch on the side handle now toggles between Stills and Movie modes. The default settings in Stills mode include 6K resolution and a 3:2 aspect ratio, so in essence by switching to this mode you can turn your RED device into a "traditional" 19-megapixel digital camera. Click through / scroll down for the details and a video explanation.

Sony Patents New Dual-layer Sensor with PDAF

Sony has filed a patent for a new dual-layer image sensor. Spotted by Egami, the patent describes a sensor architecture where the top layer is made up of regular pixels with a standard RGB colour filter array, and the second consists of monochromatic pixels suitable for phase-detect auto focus (PDAF) operation. If implemented in a camera or smartphone, this sensor could enable users to pick their focus point with pixel-level accuracy (which is probably more than what any of us bargained for, but it could also improve focusing accuracy when using continuous, subject tracking auto-focus). According to Egami, this is but one of several examples given by Sony, as the patent itself covers a broader range of multi-layer sensors.

Everyday Messenger Bag Goes Live on Kickstarter

Peak Design have embarked on a Kickstarter campaign to launch their first in a planned line of bags dubbed The Everyday Messenger. Product development was started over a year ago when professional photographer Trey Ratcliff approached the company with a challenge to design a bag that accommodated photo gear, but also the implements of everyday life. The Everyday Messenger expands from 13.5L to 20.5L, utilising a system of 22 foam panels that expand and contract cleanly, without losing shape. The exterior is built from a 500D synthetic canvas with wax coating and DWR finish, which sheds water and provides rugged durabiity. The Everyday Messenger’s interior is constructed with several removable high-density compression-molded EVA foam inserts that fold to adapt to a wide range of cameras, lenses and accessories, without creating pockets of “dead space” found in typical camera bags. The new bag features a proprietary closure mechanism designed to allow blind, one-handed operation, and both semi and full lock engagement. The Everyday Messenger is finished with an internally-padded seatbelt-style shoulder strap that allows a huge range of adjustment with no hanging “tail” of extra webbing. For more information, visit the website below.

Google to Shut Down Google+ Photos

Google will begin phasing out their Google+ Photos mobile app and Web service on 1 August 2015. Encouraging users to switch to the new standalone Photos app, Google says it will start shutting down Google+ Photos initially on Android, and soon thereafter on the Web and iOS. Your files currently stored in Google+ Photos will remain accessible, but the app will stop working. Photos and videos can be exported to Google Drive or downloaded to your computer using Google Takeout.

Special Pre-sale Offer on Miggo AGUA Camera Bags

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the Miggo AGUA all-weather quick-draw camera bag is now available to pre-order from the Miggo website. Manufactured in three sizes, the IPX3-standard storm-resistant case enables you to comfortably carry your camera close to your body in any weather - and draw it quickly and with ease at the right moment to capture a perfect shot. The camera is attached to the bag with quick-release buckles, including a failsafe connection. This solution eliminates the need for the original camera strap because the AGUA's strap is used to carry the camera itself. By taking advantage of the pre-sale offer, you can buy the CSC/Superzoom version for $54.99, the mid-sized SLR option for $59.99, or the pro SLR option for $69.99. Additionally, you can now purchase the also-new Speed Strap, Two-Way Speed Strap and Grip & Wrap Mini at a 10% discount.

GoPro Launch their Content Licensing Portal

GoPro have just launched a premium content licensing portal for global advertising brands and agencies to license GoPro footage and imagery. According to the company, the portal "eliminates the pain points creative professionals have when sourcing content by helping them clear copyrights and likeness rights, easy access to creators’ content and organised, efficient, time-saving tools to search, download and preview content to license for use in advertising, news and other media and entertainment."
