KickStarter: The Qlipter - The Super Clip That Will Rule Them All.
PVC at NAB 2014: Sachtler Makes Things Easy and Affordable for Cinematographers.
Design You Trust: Vintage Playing Cards by Bicycle.
“Designed to look beat-up and distressed, this is the perfect set for your home poker room setup.” Pre-grotted. I prefer to stress my own. And I tend to prefer Racer-back (not made anymore, apparently). At some point, I’m going to invest in some Theory11 cards; they are gorgeous.
Richvibe: Lauge Jensen x Henrik Fisker Viking Motorcycle.
These feet-and-arms forward riding position bikes make my back ache just looking at them … but this one sure is purty. In other words, I certainly wouldn’t kick it out o’ my garage.
ArtDaily: Lunar-landed artifacts from moonwalker Alan Bean set for lift-off at auction.
I wonder how much that real ‘space pen’ will go for ...
Olive-Drab: Army Jeep In A Crate for $50?
The myth, debunked.
DPR: A travel-sized large-format 4x5 camera?
Luminous Landscape: Panasonic GH4 Report.
Video goodness. Still love the availability of an external grip with XLRs.

The comments, the comments.
Return of the Cafe Racers: Inazumanx Suzuki GSX1200.
Spot the second exhaust trumpet yet? Keeps your arse warm in the cold, I suspect. I like the overall design/aesthetic balance. Big ol’ GSX’s need a large tank to look right.
Supercharged: RCR Monoposto - 1958 F1 Race Car Replica.
Unlikely to be street legal.
Mashable: Elon Musk on Risky SpaceX Launch - If It Works, It’s the Biggest Thing We’ve Done.
“When the Dragon capsule is safely in orbit and well on its way to the space station, the first stage will separate and re-enter Earth’s atmosphere. As the helium-filled rocket slows, it will extend four 25-foot-long landing legs and use its thrusters to briefly hover over the Atlantic Ocean before plopping down ever so gently onto the surface.” Logical spot to try it first.
Photo Rumors: Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens (Canon version) tested at DxOmark.
Hmmm. I rented the Zeiss 50mm F2 Makro and liked having an f/22 in addition to half life-size detail work. I’d miss the 1.4 shallow DOF, perhaps. But 800 or so extra smackers’ll buy another lens. 50mm isn’t that compelling a focal range.
Fashion Gone Rogue: Unretouched Lady Gaga Versace Ads.
A whole lotta manipulation goin’ on.
Supercharged: Bugatti 12.4 Grand Sport concept Atlantic.
A whole mishmash of styling cues; very reminiscent of the classics. I like it.
WWD, Q&A: Ralph Lauren Now.
ArtDaily: Christie’s announces Sale of Vintage Travel Posters and Luggage.
I have a terrible abiding weakness for both.
CNet: LaCie admits to year-long credit card breach.
“LaCie, which is set to merge with American hard drive maker Seagate, said it was informed about the breach on March 19, 2014 by the FBI. But the hardware company speculated that all transactions between March 27, 2013 and March 10, 2014 were possibly affected.”
DP Review: Never lose your lens cap again with HACkxTACK.
“The magnets are device-friendly and do not interfere with your camera or other electronic devices.” I don’t know about you, but I eschew magnetic trifles when dealing with CF/SD cards. Nice idea, not on my list.
JunkCulture: Photographer Captures the Haunting Beauty of Abandoned Shopping Malls.
They sucked the life out of vital, traditional, walking downtown areas. Remember that, as you view these.
30Npire: Johammer J1 Electric Motorcycle.
Bizarre, man. They look like lightning bugs. I’d still like to try one though.
Youtube/DigitalRev: Fujifilm X-T1 Hands-on Review.
Can’t help it; I love these folks and their quirky reviews. I think I need to rent one of these mirrorless wonders.
Gentleman’s Gadgets: Audi’s Toy Car for the Big Boys.
Quietly pretend that you’re Tazio Nuvolari.
