Web Picks & News Round Up: Canon EOS 5D Mk III, Nokia 41mp Smart Phone etc

Let us start this weeks round up with the biggest news of the day, Canon’s announcement of the long awaited EOS-5D Mk III. The new camera boasts many improvements over the Mark II version including a more robust build, 6 frames per second and a 22.3mp sensor which utilizes the gapless micro lens technology that is on the EOS-1Dx and should make for improved low light performance. Also on the improvement list is the autofocus system which is the 61-point system found in the EOS1-Dx.

Web Picks: Wet Plate Photographer and Other Stories

Some of you may recall some time back that we used to have a Website of the Week feature. As time went on we focused on other areas and gradually the feature phased out. Today I want to try a new feature and get your feedback on it. Some ideas on what to call it would also be good. For the time being I am going to call it “Web Picks” and it will serve as a post to share with you some of our favourite stories on the web. Feel free in the comments to link to other great stories you may have found and want to share.
