Demo: Lens-correcting GoPro quadcopter footage
Russell Brown’s life does not, from all I can tell, suck in the least. He was recently flying a GoPro camera around the Golden Gate Bridge & the ghost town of Bodie, CA, and here he shows how the new lens profiles built into Camera Raw 8.2 can work on both stills & video. (Jump ahead to 2:40 or so if you want to see the video portion.)
Camera Raw 8.2 RC adds features, new camera & lens support
In addition to supporting 10 new cameras (including the new Canon 70D) and adding several lens profiles (including for the GoPro Hero 3), Camera Raw 8.2 makes a bunch of welcome nips & tucks: The Spot Healing tool gets feathering control; the histogram is now interactive; the Detail panel gets a color smoothness slider; workflow presets are now available; and the Local Adjustment brush has been refined. Check out the Lightroom Journal’s post for full details.
As a reminder, compatibility updates come to both CS and CC, but new features show up only in CC. (That’s the promise of Creative Cloud: New features roll out all the time.)
