Warren, Connecticut. Just a quick shot taken with my wife’s Canon A710 (not bad) of my Canon 5D with 300mm f/4 lens on a Bogen Tabletop Tripod.
I’ve had this little tabletop tripod for years and it holds a surprising amount of weight, quite well. This setup will not tip easily. I could even put the 1.4x extender on here without causing instability.
Note: the RRS lens ring plate isn’t necessary for this setup, it’s used to mount the lens on a full-size tripod with ball-head.
A small tripod like this is a useful part of any photo kit, even if you already have a “real” tripod.
We’re constantly working to make Aperture an even better tool for users, and will soon release an upgrade that includes RAW format support for new cameras and other exciting new features. Please stay tuned.
My word, it’s about time. Of course, they might not release it for another year. Argh.
Okay, he’s not Cheney and Haliburton but still, just because he’s bubba doesn’t make it right for him to triangulate deals like this that fly in the face of human rights and will no doubt put nuclear fuel in more places than we might want it.
There is no denying that the MacBook Air’s thinness makes it visually striking. But I’m not convinced of the utility of that thinness. Other than allowing Apple to declare the Air the current winner of the race to design the thinnest laptop, it seems that the Air has slimmed down in the least important dimension.
This is the piece that concerned me on seeing Jobs show it off and talk about it and after reading this article, if I were buying a new laptop in this category I’d go for a regular MacBook.
In the end, what they need is a repeat of the 12″ PowerBook (12″ MacBook Pro), maybe a tad thinner and lighter but with all the ports and all the power and a choice of flat or glossy screen.
This is a spectacular piece of scuplture built by London design firm Troika for the new British Airways luxury lounges in Heathrow Terminal 5. Next time I’m through Heathrow I’m going to check this out. Fantastic.
Los Angeles, California. Waiting for what turned out to be an incredible roasted vegetable sandwich at the Pentimento cafe at LACMA , out came the camera to shoot the silverware, salt and pepper shakers, plates, and the water.
I love this stuff. I used to scan books of the best advertising of x year when I was in art school. The creativity is incredible. The series “Life’s Too Short” on the sides of dryers, gas pumps, coffee machines, and more is wonderful.
Santa Monica, California. I’m shooting east up Wilshire catching a wooden post and rope railing with cars behind. There are four serious photographers to my left wondering why my back is to the Pacific Ocean with an incredible sunset happening and what I’m seeing in this wooden post.
When I left two of them came over to inspect the post.
