A First Look at Slylum's Luminar 3: Now with a Library Panel

Gary Detonnancourt

Skylum will not be releasing the new version Luminar 3 until December 18th and my course will not be finished for awhile after this release date. Therefore, I have decided to create a pre-sale bundle where you can purchase the Luminar 3 course now before it’s even been created at a deeply discounted price. This will help with the development of the course and since I want you to get plenty of value from my courses, I’ve decided to add three of my most popular courses to this bundle as a special pre-sale bonus. This four-course bundle will include:

  • Luminar 3

  • Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Lightroom

  • F**k the Rules, Your Composition Your Way

  • Learn to Create More than a Snapshot Photography Course

The pre-sale Black Friday price is $50 and you can click here to purchase this bundle.

If you don’t currently own Luminar you can purchase it now during their black Friday deal by clicking here. Since your purchasing it now you will get the upgrade to Luminar 3 free when it’s released on December 18th. They are also offering many bonuses with this sale that you can check out on their sales page.

If you decide to buy it use the coupon code “SNAPSHOT” to get $10 off.

Review of the ZhiYun Smooth 3-Axis Gimbal for the Iphone

ZhiYun Smooth-C/R Review and timelapse videos created by the Panasonic GH4. 

In this video, I review the create some test footage from the ZhiYun Smooth C/R 3-axis gimbal.  All of the stabilized video was shot on the iPhone 6S Plus and the time-lapse images were done on the Panasonic GH4.  The video was edited with Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

 

Apple iPad Pro for Photographers

Gary Detonnancourt

Apple has just announced the biggest and best tablet screen for the new iPad Pro.  It's about the size of a 13-inch laptop and with the A9x chip and 4 GBs of Ram, it should be faster than 80% of the computers on the market today.  

It is supposed to be able to edit 3 streams of 4K video.  Pretty Impressive for a tablet, but what about storage space?  You can't store too many 4K videos with 128 GBs of internal memory.  Apple is also putting out a pencil and a keyboard to compete with the Surface Pro.  

That all sounds great but would you buy one ($800-$1000)?  What would you use it for?  Do you think it will be useful for Photographers?  

It would be nice if it could replace a laptop, but I think storage memory limitations still hold it back from being a true productivity tool.  Check out this video that does a nice job of describing it's features.
