From Canon Professional Network:
 
Most EOS digital cameras offer Custom Functions. These allow you to alter the way the camera operates to suit your own personal needs. Exposure, focusing and flash are just some of the areas covered by the functions. Each function has a factory-defined default setting, plus one or more alternative settings.
 
Custom Functions are set through the camera menu system. Find and select ‘Custom Functions’ and you will bring up a screen with each Custom Function number displayed. Select the appropriate number and you will be taken to a screen where you can select from the various options for that custom function.

Canon France, in association with Images-Evidence, has announced that the 14th annual Canon Female Photojournalist Award is open until 26 May 2014 for submissions from female photojournalists of any age and nationality.
 
This year, for the first time, the award is supported by Elle Magazine and Canon France will grant the winning female photojournalist €8,000 to help her to continue and complete a photojournalistic project on a social, economic, political or cultural subject.
 
A jury made up of top photography and press professionals will select the winner in June. Entrants will be judged both upon the presentation of their project and their previous work. Among the selection criteria are the quality of the photographs, the journalistic thought processes and relevance of the chosen subject.
 
The award will be presented to the winner during the Professional Week (1-7 September 2014) of the 2014 Visa pour l’Image international festival of photojournalism in Perpignan, France, and the winning photojournalist will then continue with a project which will lead to an exhibition or screening at the Visa pour l’Image festival in 2015.
 
An exhibition of the work of the 2013 award winner – US photojournalist Mary F. Calvert (Zuma Press) – showing images from her project on sexual violence in the US military will feature as part of the exhibition programme of the 2014 Visa pour l’Image festival.
 
The other previous winners of the Canon Female Photojournalist Award were:
 
2012 – Sarah Caron
2011 – Ilvy Njiokiktjien
2010 – Martina Bacigalupo
2009 – Justyna Mielnikiewicz
2008 – Brenda Anne Kenneally
2007 – Axelle de Russé
2006 – Veronique de Viguerie
2005 – Claudia Guadarrama

CPN has published a great story regarding Reuters' photographer Kai Pfaffenbach who was able to prove a violation was incorrectly called against David Storl's Gold-winning throw by showing referees a burst of images captured by his camera.
 
From Canon Professional Network:

"Images shot by Reuters’ photographer Kai Pfaffenbach changed the course of sports history at the recent IAAF World Championships in Moscow as they proved that Germany’s David Storl did not foul during the Men’s Shot Put Final, thus directly securing the gold medal for Storl."
