Leamington New Zealand – iPad

The iPad and the hegemony of the 6x4

Far be it for me to appear to be up with the latest toy – but here I am and here it is – and it’s all rather fun. Thanks Rae and thanks to Anna B. for the quote – it just seems to fit. The photograph comes from this gallery.

Best of New Zealand Geographic Photographic Exhibition

Best of New Zealand Geographic Photographic ExhibitionStopping in Taupo for lunch today I notice the rather large ‘rustic’ and somewhat surreal sign for the Best of New Zealand Geographic Photographic Exhibition. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to visit the exhibition which I understand was showing close by at the Taupo Great Lakes Centre.

The Nikon F90X

Joanna Rushton
Jo has had a rough time of late – and today wasn’t the greatest. Jo wants to pursue photography (with the rationed school time she has at her disposal) through her art. The 90X was retired in 2005 after a full life as a professional camera from new in 1999 or thereabouts. After some too-ing and fro-ing on Facebook and a quick look at what’s on offer on TradeMe – we decide this the best option and a good match.

This sounds promising

Open-source camera could revolutionize digital photography

Stanford scientists’ open-source camera could change photography by giving programmers anywhere the power to change camera features and create new possibilities.

G11 v G10

I’m sticking with the G10. If you’re looking for HD video in a compact you need to look elsewhere. Along with the Olympus OM1, the μ[mju:]-II (Stylus), perhaps the Nikon F70/F90 series and most certainly the Sony F828 a piece of equipment – a camera – to enjoy. Here are some thoughts in the G10/G11 debate. Bill Lockheart has his say and of course we have dpreview.

Cambridge NZ supports rowing?

This poster has graced the Duke Street window of photographers Hot Shots To Go for the past month. It celebrates the involvement of Cambridge photographers (six – at least – by our count) in the annual rowing regattas on Lake Karapiro over the past two decades and more. An involvement which, in our memory, goes back to the mid 1980’s. The poster and accompanying window display – which includes film from the 1978 World Rowing Championships – has elicited much interest from visitors and locals, rowers and not. With the staging of the 2009 Maadi Cup at Karapiro in a few days time – the last regatta before the serious work of the Karapiro Lake Domain makeover for the 2010 World Rowing Championships begins – Cambridge shopkeepers are being asked to adopt a school for the duration of the regatta – hopefully reflected in supportive window displays. One hopes this is a success – comments about our poster suggest many find it odd that one of the largest sporting events in Australasia often appears all but ignored, in Cambridge CBD, less than 12 minutes & 9 kilometres away from the much celebrated action.

Canon G10

The Canon G10 has it’s detractors yet is a joy to use. This cropped portion of the image below – actually the image taken directly afterwards from the same postion/POV – gives an idea of its potential. A photographer’s camera they say. On the NZ market somewhere in the $900.00 range. BTW, I love the look and feel of it.

Colours

To those observant of such stuff – my colour rendering can be flaky at the best of times. Over the past month I have moved from JPEG to RAW file capture when making images. I’ve had skirmishes with RAW files – and used them extensively in the past couple of years – but. I am a late bloomer. Letting go and just getting on with it is the way to go. No JPEG backup. Of course the resulting feeling is – why didn’t I do this back in March when I first got the K20D. The new regime will result in more consistency. It’s certainly lots of fun.

Slideshare.org

A small Slideshare experiment – from last Sunday. Seems a quick and easy solution to a problem I have been toying with; how to embed a slide show in WordPress.com. Sign up with SlideShare. Size images to 1024×683 (e.g. from K20D) use OpenOffice Impress to make a slide show presentation. Save and upload. Embed using the WordPress short code. Easy. One problem there is no auto play. Mmm.

PS: Alter width– in short code -to suit the WP theme in use.

I have spent time over the past few days establishing links between both sites. Searching my archive should become as rich as searching here over time. Just shaping the archive into something that is simple and intuitive is a bit of a challenge. Hopefully the basics are there.  WordPress 2.7 made it’s appearencce at 2PM this afternoon. The new dashboard is all is very flash and functional. As is usual with WordPress upgrades, particularly when familiar with all the bells and whistles, the improvements are a delight.
