An analysis of EOS-1D Mark III autofocus performance
In our first look at the Canon EOS-1D Mark III back in April, we described the camera's autofocus as being blazingly fast at acquiring initial focus and quicker off the line in dim light than any camera we'd used before. But at times, it also had real troubles holding focus on static subjects as well as tracking moving subjects. Over the last three weeks, we've been shooting extensively with two full production EOS-1D Mark IIIs in an attempt to figure out whether the autofocus weaknesses (and strengths) of the preproduction body carry over to shipping units. Here's what we've learned.

Safari 3 brings colour-managed web browsing to Windows
Apple's release of a public beta of Safari 3 makes practical the colour-managed viewing of photos within a Windows web browser for the first time. In a workout of Safari 3 within Windows XP and Vista here, the new browser properly displayed pictures with embedded ICC profiles, just like Safari 3 (and earlier) does on the Mac. For that reason alone, Windows users may want to take the Safari 3 public beta for a spin, especially if you visit websites (like this one) that publish pictures with profiles embedded.
