Canon c500

Whoa Nellie - CS6 announced - SPEEDGRADE added to suite but there is more ( did I mention the Canon C500?)

Well Gee.

So yesterday added even more surprises.

Adobe announces CS6 Suite with huge updates to Premier Pro and AE, adds New Apps in Prelude and Speedgrade I have to say after test driving the suite, I too am very impressed with what Adobe is doing. But the kicker to me is not the advanced integration or the ease of use or the ability to modify the user interface in PPro.

But in Speedgrade, When the purchace of Iridas was announced last September, this was what I had hoped for, and what I got is even better. See Irirdas' Speedgrade was always well thought of, but not widely used. The 3D alignment and the color correction capabilites were beyond reproach on for highend users, but the purchase of Iridas added something extra to the mix.

It brought RAW power, see while Adobe was working on RAW implementations, Iridas already had some of the best camera raw functionality around, and now all of that power, is nestled right underneath the CS6 Suite, there below your timeline, its truely Native support for raw camera formats, not just RED's R3D, but how about working in native ARRIRAW ( with presets included) from Alexa directly in PPro, and oh yeah, the app that made use of all of that power is now also part of the CS6 Suite of Tools. Speedgrade is here, maybe not for everyone, but certainly for this user, I am glad it is back.

The other big annoucenment of the day yesterday

Canon Announces the EOS C500

"The Cinema EOS C500/C500 PL digital cinematography cameras will not only support 4K-resolution video but also outputs this as a 10-bit uncompressed RAW data stream with no de-Bayering. The cameras offer the additional versatility of being able to output quad full-HD (3840 x 2160), 2K (2048 x 1080), full HD (1920 x 1080), and other imaging options"

So Adobe drops a bomb and Canon offers the nex Gen of the "C" class camera systems, that's not a bad start to the weekend is it.

I am offline until Sunday - See you in the desert
