About ON1 Photo RAW 2017
ON1 Photo includes an all-new proprietary state-of-the-art raw processing engine and image-processing pipeline tuned for today’s sensors and graphics chips. Version 2017 provides a lightning fast photo browser along with powerful cataloging capabilities in one app without the restrictions other photo cataloging apps face. The app offers one of the fastest ways to cull photos making it easy to tag, rate, make color and tone adjustments, or add effects to photos. The non-destructive workflow utilizes sidecar files to store edits and allows photographers the ability to edit and adjust photos locally, in the cloud, or on file servers. This also allows photographers to access their photos from multiple computers and/or allow colleagues to access and edit the same photos from where they left off.

The instruction-based, non-destructive workflow in ON1 Photo 2017 surpasses other raw processors in other key ways. In addition to customary re-editable adjustments such as exposure, contrast, color, shadows and highlights, ON1 Photo offers non-destructive effects and portrait retouching. The ability to create layers, masks, and selectively apply filters and effects to raw photos (and other common file formats) in an all-in-one app, not multiple apps, separates it from other photo editors available today. ON1 Photo rounds out with the best all-inclusive effects app on the market. The simple to use, complex filters found in ON1 Effects—including B&W Conversions, Lens Blur, Skin Retouching, Dynamic Contrast, HDR, Color Grading, and many more—are all available in the non-destructive workflow allowing for endless possibilities when looking to create or recreate your style. You no longer need multiple apps or plug-ins for photo effects. ON1 Effects in ON1 Photo 2017 is all you need.

ON1 Photo works the way you want, and where you want. For photographers with established workflows, seamless integration as a plug-in for Adobe® Lightroom® and Photoshop® is built-in. It also works as a standalone host app for Google® Nik Collection and other photo editors; or as an extension to Apple® Photos. Common file formats—including JPEG, TIF, PSD, PSB, PND, and DNG—are supported and benefit from the speed and performance of the app.

ON1 Isn’t Done Yet
ON1 has adopted a new development process with ON1 Photo 2017. This will allow for continuous updates and new features approximately every 4-6 weeks. Several free updates to ON1 Photo are scheduled for the first half of 2017. These include: automatic lens correction, workspaces, compare mode, photo settings, versions, groups (stacks), camera profiles (film looks), updates for new cameras, and much more. Feedback from the ON1 community has been critical in helping prioritize product features. The Photo RAW Project is the best way for users to submit their ideas and feature requests for Photo RAW. Each submission is reviewed by ON1 and then voted on by the community. The more votes an idea gets, the higher likelihood it will get added into the app.

Price and Availability
ON1 Photo 2017 is available for $119.99. Previous owners of ON1 can upgrade for just $99.99. The app also includes activation via user accounts for up to five computers. You can also use ON1 Photo 2017 FREE for 30-days by downloading the trial from the ON1 website. The trial is fully functional without any limitations or watermarking.

When the digital revolution arrived to photography, one of the side-effects was a demand for enterprise class storage even by the most amateur of photographers. Every digital photography course ever offered has always hammered this point:

Always use the best quality storage devices and always make sure you have two backups.

sad-macAfter eight years of nearly uninterrupted service, I finally had to retire my Mac Pro 2008. This dual-Xeon workstation served me long and faithfully, but Apple and the economy conspired against my upgrading to the latest and greatest Mac Pro. However, this was not a surprise. I saw the writing on the wall a long time ago. Continue reading »

Priolite Ultra takes creative freedom a step beyond other monolights by allowing photographers to shoot at any shutter speed (up to 1/8000s) at any power output, all in the smallest all-metal construction monolight on the market. In order to freeze motion or balance ambient light in more moderately lit environments, photographers need to be able to drop the power of the strobe much more than just the two stops that most monolights allow for such high speed sync. With Priolite Ultra’s HotSync technology photographers can create the best possible exposure timing at any shutter speed, and most importantly, at any power setting (from 9Ws all the way up to 1000Ws)!
Priolite is a very affordable strobe option that does not compromise on quality or functionality. With compatibility for many major camera brands and a universal modifier mount, the Priolite Ultra can step right into any lighting kit. Some other features of the Priolite Ultra include:

  • 1/8000 high speed flash synch at any power level (from 9Ws up to 1000Ws)
  • Built-in 2.4 GHz wireless receiver compatible with Canon, Nikon, Sony and Pentax cameras (trigger and adjust up to 36 lights at the push of a button)
  • Universal modifier mount takes Priolite, Hensel, and Bowens-s mount without, and Elinchrom or Profoto with an adapter
  • Fine output control with 1/10th stop intervals
  • Recycling time of 2.5 sec at full power
  • LED modeling light (equivalent to 80 W halogen)
  • At only 8 inches in length and 5.6 inches wide, the lightweight Priolite Ultra is the extremely portability and ideal for travel
  • 220 full-power flashes per charge, and over 6000 at the lowest power setting
  • 5,500 Kelvin color temperature
  • Metal frame, metal hardware, metal mount, Li-Ion powered

Headquartered in Germany, Priolite has been engineering and manufacturing its photography lights since 2009. With the Priolite Ultra, the company is offering the Kickstarter community the first opportunity to jump on this next generation monolight. The campaign has structured backer packages starting at only $799, all of which can be found on the campaign page here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/priolite/priolite-ultra-1-8000th-flash-sync-compact-li-ion
