Still photography just got a major upgrade. By downloading a free firmware upgrade from Sony, Nex-3 and Nex-5 owners who have been confined to capturing pictures in two dimensions (width and height) can add depth.

I just witnessed my first 3D slide show.
A new firmware update was released yesterday for the popular Sound Devices 552 field mixer. The firmware adds a new muting capability which enables you to exclude a channel from the master output, while still sending the signal to the direct and digital outs.
If you own an Olympus Pen E-P1, E-P2, or E-PL1 it's firmware update time! Easily accessed and downloadable form Olympus' website.
