CycleEXIF: 8 Miles And Ridin’ - Detroit Bicycle Company x Williamson.
COPPER. Plating, of course. Otherwise you’d rest on the handlebars and they’d bend down to the front axle. Here’s your steampunk bike, kids.
DP Review: Fujifilm goes medium format - What you need to know about the GFX 50S.
Shoulder shrugs. First thing I think of. If Fuji’s beautiful color rendition translates to 50MP, this’ll be a stunner.
Bike EXIF: When the pavement runs out - Vintage Electric’s scrambler.
This could make commuting into Santa Fe on the Rail Trail a real blast.
DP Review: The Slingshot by Syrp wants to bring a new look to your time-lapses.
DP Review: Leica-branded instant camera rumored to launch soon.
Even at this price point, this’ll end up the “poor photographer status symbol”. They’ll sell thousands.
Italian Ways: Zagato’s Fiat-Abarth 1000 “Record Monza”.
Looks more like a bug than ‘The Bug’ [VW].
Vimeo: Cinesite Captain America: Civil War VFX Showreel.
So much work. And this is only a small fraction of the film.
BittBox: Make a Dotted Line in Photoshop.
Designer News: Anyone else finding that Adobe programs are becoming more slower to load?
Oh yeah. I need to stuff an SSD in the iMac or upgrade. Religiously keeping my main drive half empty (performance suffers if the disk is above 50% capacity).
Italian Ways: The Fiat 8V Elaborata Zagato, the American bet.
Love the dint in the roof ... though I’d probably hate it from a driver’s perspective. Another one I’ve not seen before.
Smashing Mag: Using A Static Site Generator At Scale - Lessons Learned.
Would I be insane for moving this blog to something like Jekyll? And how to handle comments. Asking for input.
Camera slides, without rails. Pricey, but if engineered well, worth every penny.
Valet.: Forget the Man Cave. You Want a Gentleman’s Study.
Someday, I hope to do something Hemingway-esque for my office. The ones pictured here — too contemporary. Hit Craiglist and local consignment. Better stuff.
Amazon.com: Pendleton Rainier National Park Full Blanket.
Pendleton has made a whole series for all the National Parks.
Harkening back to the days of the 5k. Sharpen your keyboards!
Return of the Cafe Racers: Gear Review - Ruby Helmets Castel.
$1200 buckeroonies? Sheesh.
DP Review: Kipon introduces reducer to fit Nikon F and Leica R lenses to Micro Four Thirds bodies.
Hmmm. Uses optics. That usually sounds warning bells (quality) ...
c|net Roadshow: You can buy one of Elio’s three-wheeled ‘cars’ for $7,000*.
Of note. Turn down the video upon visiting.
BackBlaze/Hard Drive Failure Rates: The Results from 68,813 Hard Drives.
Autoweek: The best of the Monterey auctions
Here’s your car, Emmett. Not exactly perfectly art-deco, but close enough. Gorgeous.
Hodinkee: The ‘Dirty Dozen,’ A Collection Of 12 (Mostly) Inexpensive Military Watches.
Beware. Many watches of WWII vintage have radium dials. Enough to set off geiger counters, and perhaps give you accelerated skin cancer. And you could get thrown in the slammer for carrying WMDs.
DP Review: Nikon D500 versus D750: Which one is right for you?
Short, sweet ... and most importantly, helpful.
Classic Driver Mag: The cultural renaissance of the Art Deco-era’s rolling sculptures.
NY’er: Headphones Everywhere.
You know, it’s curious. I stopped going to the gym about three years ago, and recently started back up. When I left, earbuds were the rage. Today, people are walking around with giant cans on their heads. My theory is (without any basis of evidence) that earbuds - no matter the price - sound like crap unless you have ears that fit the three-standard-size flanges. When you have ill-fitting earbuds, you tend to jack the volume, causing temporary deafness. I suspect everyone’s grokked to the fact that there’s nothing quite like the quality of sound of real headphones, and the volume can be set at an eardum-saving level. So you look like Mickey Mouse. At least you’ve got a soundtrack as you glazedly wander around the gym ... blissfully isolated from weight-banging, grunts and groans, fans, elliptical and treadmill whine ...
BarnFinds: Trail-Tested Time Machine - 1987 Suzuki Samurai JX SE.
Rented one of these, once upon a time - totally fun. Nothing really takes its place these days.
