In The News From around the web

Photographer Mike Olbinski is not only a wedding photographer, but he's also a storm chaser.
You've likely seen one or more of his storm-chasing time lapse videos before, we've shared them on a couple of occasions.
To see the rest of the videos Canon has produced for "The Lab," click here.
It is always interesting to see how different artists go through their creative process and how people perform when presented with a unique challenge.
He has always shot his storm photography and time-lapse videos in color, as he loves the vibrant colors of storms.
The wedding photographer has a passion for storm photography and storm chasing.
It could potentially cause a camera lockup when shooting in live view mode with image review enabled while using the ML-L3 remote control, but only after red-eye reduction was selected as the flash mode.
The new release makes but one change: raw output has been added to the device's roster of capabilities.
