The Luminous Landscape: Two Weeks With The Olympus E-M1.

Hmmm. That photo comparing the Oly to Nikon with comparable length lenses. After taking a hit in the Range Rover at high speed while holding a conventional DSLR with 2.8 70-200, the weight savings is looking more attractive by the minute.

DailyIcon: Abbaye de Fontevraud Hotel.

Now here is a truly interesting adaptation of modern interior design cast against ancient structure. I surprise myself and find I admire it.

One of the handful of decent file-based CMSs out there. Looking forward to kicking the tires again.

AdamHyde.net: Whats Wrong with Markdown.

As I’ve said before, try teaching a client [used to WYSIWYG editors] how to use Markdown. For a programmer it is simple to implement. But to do so is ignoring the broader user base.

EOSHD: Nikon D810 video quality leapfrogs Canon 5D Mark III.

The D810 now shoots better quality 1080p out of the box than the 5D Mark III. It isn’t 4K or raw but it’s good. In fact Nikon are now providing better image quality than Canon across the range in video mode. Beginning with the D3300 and D5300 which provide a better APS-C image than the 7D Mark II with less moire, Nikon have taken the same improvement to image quality and applied it to the D800’s successor, the D810.”  Ouch, Canon.

Bicycling Mag: The $134 Miracle Bike.

Should probably have solid tires. For comparable ‘improvement in lives’, dig around and see what bicycles did for women in the late 1800’s. One could, squinting a bit hard, credit bicycles with the suffragette movement.

BarnFinds: Preservation Restoration - 1929 Ford Model AA.

The cursing speed is 30 mph.”  Sic. Great find. The Model T’s and A’s were also called ‘Tennessee Walking Trucks.’ You could put your sack of seed on the back, line it up with the tilled field, stick it in first, jump out and walk behind it to seed the fields.
