Physically, this camera feels quite similar to the 5D Mark II, but Canon has added some refinements from the EOS 7D — the power switch has been moved up to the control dial on the top, there’s a dedicated video capture / Live View button, and a new multi-function button (for controlling features like the AE lock or one-touch RAW / JPEG settings) sits up near the shutter button. There’s also a new 3.2-inch display on the back, which is identical to that of the 1D X and contains 1,040,000 dots. The viewfinder has also been been upgraded — it now offers 100 percent coverage with a .71x magnification factor, up from the already-respectable 98 percent coverage found in the Mark II.

That was in 2009. Today Corridor Digital is at the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers and visual effects artists creating and distributing their own original content on YouTube. With over 800,000 subscribers, Corridor’s blend of humorous action shorts has proven that DIY filmmaking does not need to look low budget.
In case you ever doubted the cool factor of Sesame Street, the venerable children’s show has a new stop-motion music video starring none other than OK Go. Dressed up in red, yellow and blue clothing, the band sings about the principles of primary and secondary colors.
There has been quite a lot of buzz about streaming content recently, with a lot of companies stepping up to announce that they are cognizant of its impact and working to assess how to proceed. Then of course, there has been a major crackdown on sites that stream or offer shows illegally, like the major arrest of the megaupload creator.
