Something you’ll enjoy, from Motorado yesterday.
EOS HD: Interesting insights into the new Sony A7R II and RX sensor technology.
Not your stereotypical Santa Fe door.
incase: DSLR Camera Organizer.
Retrofit an existing bag into a camera bag. Nice to know it’s available.
BlessThisStuff: DxO One.
Same MP and sensor size as the new Canon G3X. It all hinges on the quality of the lens, methinks.
Another night of cloud pageantry.
Luminous Landscape: Rediscovering Craft.
“As for 35mm, as far as I’m concerned 135 film is simply not competitive at all against any digital camera. If you like it, fine, but history has moved on.” That triggered a memory - a time when we obsessed over whether 6MP [the latest digitals at the time] was equivalent to the best 35MM films, and whether it was time to switch. Just at the beginning of the ‘00’s. How time flies.
Guardian.UK: Public images are increasingly limited.
“It seems to me, from a photographic point of view, that the public space has become privatised, with CCTV everywhere and the lone photographer increasingly unwelcome.” Britain, of course. We photographers in America need to continue to stand against this sort of behavior.
Italian Ways: Allemano’s Maserati A6 G 2000: designer coupé.
Stormy eve begat stormy night ...
Italian Ways: The Nesso waterfall - “beautiful, majestic, and terrible”.
Beautiful, indeed. Welcome as we approach ‘hump day’ for the week.
Vimeo: Jordan from the Air.
Nice, though it seems to devolve into a drone-selfie. The entire Matador channel on V is worth exploring.
EOSHD: First Sony A7R II user experiences - global shutter and native ISO 800?
Forget the other news - this makes it a serious contender for a possible switch to mirrorless: “Photographers meanwhile will appreciate user reports that Sony have moved to 14bit raw for the A7R II’s massive 42MP stills, vs the compressed 11bit raw of previous cameras.” Soon as I see it in the rental lists, I’ve got to try it.
San José de Gracia in Trampas, NM.
This was what I call a “drive by shooting.” Two others in sequence after this, showing how green NM is getting, for all this rain.
Fubiz: A House Optical Illusion Made With Mirrors.
Oh man, these shots hurt my brain.
YT: Pentax dust and weather sealing in Afghanistan.
This will sell a lot of Pentax’s.
From the weekend.
DP Review: Sony a7R II has 42.4MP on 4k-capable full frame BSI CMOS sensor.
Wowzer. Now, Sony, stop compressing RAW files.
Later: EOSHD’s take (video focused).
DPReview: Super Zoom? Tamron SP 150-600mm F5.0-6.3 Di VC USD Field Test.
So, I am not alone in my experience of the big Tam.
DPReview: TTRobotix introduces TTR-SB Seawolf submarine for GoPro cameras.
Neat. But to be really useful, it needs powerful lights pointed forward.
What a weekend.
Recuperating after shooting the Denise McCluggage memorial drive on Saturday, and then shooting the Nick Bostrom lecture yesterday. For the car rally, I drove up past Peñasco to find a scenic spot, and was treated to hurricane canyon winds, torrential thunderstorms, and more. Yesterday, running around a venue with dual cameras to capture different angles, and then shooting hobnobbing reception guests. Every part of me hurts this morning, and I have much to accomplish. Links as I have energy.
Photo Attorney: Copyright Office Releases Report on Orphan Works and Mass Digitization.
Evenin’ at the watering hole.
AppleInsider: New ‘Batteriser’ could help your Magic Mouse batteries run 8x longer.
I’m betting this would void strobe flash warranties. I need to purchase rechargeables ... with five flashes and three triggers now, I really chew through disposables.
