Feb 3 2010 New kid(s) in town

In the process of upgrading my home network, I’ve just picked – a new NAS, Netgear ReadyNAS Duo, with 1.5TB+1.5TB disks in x-raid configuration (netgear’s raid1 with dynamic exapansion); this is replacing my older Maxtor Shared Storage II – a fanless CPU/Motherboard, Intel D510MO with Intel’s next-gen Pine Trail Atom processor, as my (always-on) mini-itx Continue reading

Jun 25 update: bathtub video test 😉 For the coming summer season I just bought this cheap waterproof (5m/15ft) case: the Aquapac 404. For less than 30€, the 404 is small enough to fit my Vado HD camcorder, my mobile phone (does 3G work for some Qik realtime streaming underwater ?!?) or my p&s camera. Continue reading

First impressions: stellar wide open performance at all focal lengths as promised, nice pleasant bokeh, focus fast even in dim light, beautiful color rendition and contrast, tack sharp.

Jan 16 2009 New toy (not a photography toy)

This gadget is the new Creative Vado HD. I just got one in the mail today 🙂 It has excellent HD (H.264 / 720p30 / 8.5Mbps) video quality for the price ($200), and most online services (FB, YouTube, Vimeo, etc) are finally hosting HD videos!

Aug 24 2008 New glass (Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8 AF D)

I got the 80-200 f/2.8 AF D. This pro level lens has excellent bokeh and is tack sharp at any aperture but shows way more color fringing than the cheaper 70-300VR I’ve been using for the last couple of years. – Camera phone upload powered by Shozu
