365/2: 266 ... rainbow over Sangres.
365/2: 265. “Not a Bomb.”
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.
Trying the new 16-35 F/4 IS this year.
My brief tests show it’s damned sharp. Excited. The extra 2.8 of the non-IS version doesn’t buy you much in a wide angle.
Shooting Santa Fe Concorso again this year.
Checking over all my equipment - time will be at a premium. Links when I can.
365/2: 264. Limn.
Jump for Joy! Featuring Roland Tanglao ...
More from Roland’s shoot. Great stuff!
365/2: 263 ... BEAMS.
Saw these just off the end off the driveway. Sun through light rain.
365/2: 262. Cool and crisp up in the Sangres.
The aspens are turning in patches at the highest elevations (10k here).
365/2: 260. Car show on the Plaza tonight.
Still importing from the CF card. If I like some of the others, I’ll add ‘em here later.
Yeah, well ... day got away from me.
And supposedly there’s a car show on the Plaza. I have to go see. I’ll be back with pix later.
365/2: 259. Odile ain’t doing much yet.
‘Course when I dare Nature, she comes back and pounds me to death. We’ll see tomorrow.
Later: For Throwback Thursday, from the ‘80’s.
365/2: 258. How I know it’s autumn ...
Show Focus Points Plugin for Lightroom.
Italian Ways: Celestial Veneto.
365/2: 257. She’s mad at me.
I was trying to use a bounce card to throw some more light on her underside, and she tried to rip my finger off.
The Verge: Leica strips display from digital camera in 60th anniversary return to basics.
“The M Edition 60 is a special version of the M-P Type 240 digital rangefinder, but there’s a twist — the new model features no screen at all, forcing you to use it as if it were a film camera.” I want one. Nothing like hardware limitations to push your creative bounds. But for the price? Oucha-magoucha. Nope.
ArtDaily: Hans P. Kraus Jr. Fine Photographs presents Chartres Cathedral in early photographs
“One of the finest examples of French High Gothic, it is a milestone in the development of Western architecture. Remarkably homogenous in style, its original stained glass windows and around 4,000 sculptures are largely preserved. Auguste Rodin stood in awe before those statues, during his first visit to the pilgrimage town in 1877, and referred to Chartres Cathedral as ‘the Acropolis of France.’” And, if you’re in Manhattan, this looks like a great short visit.
ArtDaily: ‘Horst: Photographer of Style’ on view at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
“Horst was one of the greatest photographers of fashion and society and produced some of the most famous and evocative images of the 20th century. This exhibition will shine a light on all aspects of his long and distinguished career. Horst’s legacy and influence, which has been seen in work by artists, designers and performers including Herb Ritts, Robert Mapplethorpe, Bruce Weber and Madonna, continues today.” If you’re in Old Blighty, you’ll want to take this in.
c|net: Canon reveals details for future telephoto lens line.
“The 100-400mm zoom is a good example. Canon introduced it in 1998 with its first-generation image stablization technology, which counteracts some camera shake, and still sells it for $1,700. But a new model is in the works, said Canon technical advisor Chuck Westfall in an interview here at the Photokina show Monday.” HOORAY. This is one of my favorite lenses on a crop frame camera (160-640 equivalent). Versatile as heck for sports and wildlife.
