dangerousmeta!, the original new mexican miscellany, offering eclectic linkage since 1999.

EOS HD: Hands on with the Sony A7R II.

I have never known such a well balanced, high performance chip. It looks significantly less noisy at first glance than the Canon 5DS. I say Canon have a lot of catching up to do.

Because ... YoYo. What other excuse do I need?

SF New Mexican: After nearly four decades, iconic Jackalope headed to auction.

So sad. One of those must-visit-regularly joints in Santa Fe; their wares grace so many homes in this area.

The Atlantic: How Classical Musicians Use iTunes (and Why They’re Ready to Stop).

If classical listeners are ill-served by streaming services, though, they will stick with music files; and that means they represent, as a bloc, the set of listeners who will continue to maintain personal libraries of owned music even as the larger public rents their digital music instead. How are they adapting? As it turns out: poorly.” Yeah, I still occasionally purchase from eclassical [FLAC] rather than even attempt to stream.

Kickstarter: Interchangeable Watches With Quick-Change Straps by Covair.++

Interesting. I’ve never imagined powerful magnets AND clockworks being able to exist in the same proximity on a wrist. Live and learn.

Later: I’ve noticed that when I post any link to Kickstarter, the reads on Twitter are virtually nil (as in, 50% fewer engagements than even the most uninteresting link). Not a reason to stop, but if readers here are desiring to maximize traffic on their own blogs, it seems Kickstarter has saturation beyond exhaustion.

EOSHD: Canon profits down 16%.

Iterating too slowly in some areas, too small in others. IMHO.

EOSHD: Hands-on with the new Metabones Speed Booster Ultra.

I feel that most people will buy the Speed Booster Ultra for the impact it has on the image – F0.85 is very nice to have from a Canon 50mm F1.2!

Vox: Buying TOMS shoes is a terrible way to help poor people.

Hmmm. Made me look deeper into Whole Foods’ bag credits and ‘checkout charity’ in general. Smells funky to me. I’m going to stop all of the nonsense and give to charities of my specific choosing.

Counter. Why do pop singers keep releasing country albums? A whole lot more of those, than jazz albums.

My gracious. Older lenses, significant variation. Impetus to buy newer models for any given focal length.

Paywalls are blocking me from good content, again.

A couple of articles I was going to link this morning remain unseen because of paywalls. Sorry, publishers. You do this, I can’t publicize your good work. I don’t link unless I can read beyond an excerpt. I also cannot afford to pay for every paywall that may pop up in my RSS aggregator. A renaissance of micropayments? The media’s distribution model needs a rethink.

EOSHD: Did Canon and Nikon let 31% of the video market slip away?

Would 4K on a future 5D Mark IV achieve anything at all when it can’t hope to match the usability of the Sony A7R II or an upcoming Panasonic GH5 due to the dated form factor?

Northrup.photo: Canon 5DS-R DxOMark Scores - Why you Shouldn’t Care.

The overall image quality is noticeably better than the D810 or a7R.” Much more within. Tony and Chelsea actually use these cameras for commercial work, and have access to all the models discussed on a day-to-day basis.
