Jon555: Very sad, they and Yongnuo are IMHO the best 3rd party flash manufacturers.

I'm a huge fan of Yongnuo, I have been using their flashes professionally for quite some time. They deliver an outstanding value and their wireless system is quite stable!

Kim Letkeman: "The resulting video, seen in the demo below, is quite impressive. As of now, the team does not have a release date, but mentions that those who are interested should stay tuned as they 'are working hard on making [their] hyperlapse algorithm available as a Windows app' - Note that the word app most likely hints at a Windows 8 application and not legacy desktop software (sorry Windows 7 users)."

I'm looking forward to playing with this app ... and I think it might be time that users and reviewers put on their big boy pants and stop wasting so much energy whinging about Windows 8. Using dirt cheap tools from Stardock, I have been running Windows 8 exactly as I ran Windows 7 for years now.

@BelePhotography When working in Photoshop my Surface Pro 3 is usually hooked up to my desk, which has an external monitor and Wacom tablet, so I don't use it that often. That being said, when I am on the go and need to do some quick touchups at a shoot - the combination of the new experimental gestures and the Microsoft included stylus are great!

Hi Kim! I love Windows 8, in fact I am writing to you now from my Surface Pro 3. Just put the comment in so that Windows 7 users are aware that it might be time to upgrade finally. ;)

LensBeginner: Does "Window App" mean that silly contraption that forces you to enable UAC?
If that's the case, no thanks, I'll make do without.
Too much hassle getting installers & software to work with UAC enabled.
User control is a good thing, IF implemented correctly.

Yes, I'm referencing the metro apps. You have problems with UAC? I remember it being annoying ages ago in Vista, but never bothers me in Windows 7 or 8.

Vergilius: Very nice. Maybe someone can apply the algorithm to "The Blair Witch Project" and "Cloverfield."

Someone applied a basic stabilization algorithm to those two movies actually - just Bing/Google it! :)

Hi LenBeginner,

"Windows App" most likely refers to the new apps that are downloaded through the Windows Store in Windows 8.
