Macphun, the software company that launched Luminar 2018 and has positioned itself as a strong Adobe alternative, has officially changed its name to Skylum Software. The company sent out an announcement confirming the change, but the move has been expected for a while. Last year Macphun announced that it was changing its name to better reflect the direction in which it was taking its software. We believe that photography is not about the platform or operating system you use.
Matterport has announced the Pro2 Lite, price tag £2,195, the company’s most affordable 3D camera to date which is aimed at business users who have a smaller need for 3D imaging. Like the Pro2, the Matterport Pro2 Lite incorporates the company’s True3D technology which allows users to capture fully immersive walkthroughs of properties. At a price of £2,195 / $2,500, the Matterport Pro2 Lite is roughly half the cost of the senior Pro2, and the main difference is down to battery life.
Skydio has launched the R1, price tag $2,499, a drone that it’s calling the world’s first fully autonomous flying camera. Billed as ‘a new type of visual storytelling’, the Skydio R1 records 4K video from its 13 cameras, which users control via its companion mobile app, which Skydio says you can launch with one swipe of a finger.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
