Here’s a few links to check out. I’ve also got a video coming on the Camera Calibration panel and calibration in general so keep an eye out for that too.

• Jason D. Moore posted a review of Scott’s new Lightroom 3 Book for Digital Photographers

• Adorama has a channel over on There’s a little bit of everything worth checking out, from training to gear reviews.

• Unique Photo has teamed up with Sigma and Photoshop World instructor Kevin Ames, for some online webinars. Their first one is this evening. It’s definitely worth $20 to get some insight into Kevin’s photography.

• Of personal interest to me, Nikon just announced a new 85mm f/1.4 lens. I know the old version is probably still going to remain a great lens, but I don’t have one. Why you ask? See, I first used the previous 85 f/1.4 about 2 years ago. I personally got caught up in all the rumors that said a new one was coming out “any day now” (stupid rumors!), and held off on buying one even though I LOVED it. I’ve even rented it from Lens Pro To Go because I just couldn’t do without it on some photo shoots. So I’m ready. I’ve had a little (OK, big) chunk of money ear marked for this lens for way too long, so I’m psyched to see it finally out.

Have a great day!

    Hey Matt!

    Wish I were out in Vegas with you guys this week. Not in the budget this time around. Hopefully I’ll be teaching at the next one if I get enough votes in the Next Photoshop Evangelist Contest next week!

    Anyway, just saw the link to my review and wanted to say a huge “Thanks!” for the support and, as always, let me know if I can help out in any way!

    Have a great Photoshop World!

    All the best!

    Sorry Shane. No insights. My guess is that there’s something in older models that prevents them from getting tethering to work. Who knows though? It may not even be Adobe’s fault? Maybe it’s the camera companies that no longer release updates for older cameras (D80 is 4 years old). Honestly, I have no idea but I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you on updates. Sorry 🙂

    HI Matt, love your work.

    Like Michael, I would like (slightly more articulately ;-P) to ask if you have any information regarding the fact that LR3 does not support tethering in older cameras.

    I shoot with a Nikon D80, and am totally dismayed that it is not supported.

    I am even more dismayed that my attempts to get some clarity from Adobe and in various forums has turned up no answers on why older models are not supported, and if they will be included in future releases.

    Do you have any insights? Throw a guy a bone dude…

    Matt, It’s a good thing you have had that small (large) chunk of money earmarked for the 85mm f/1.4. However long ago you earmarked it your probably gained the 0.3% interest to get it closer to the new raised prices of all nikon lenses.
