When viewing the samples, please note that all images are from in-camera JPEGs. Due the overwhelming amount of white foam in the images (and resulting underexposure), almost all of them were slightly tweaked in iPhoto for brightness or exposure adjustments. Additionally, all shots were handheld and most had the Super Steady Shot feature enabled. [Read more…]

Last weekend, Sony DIME (Digital Imaging Europe) held a press event in Miami, Florida in conjunction with the evolution of its popular like.no.other advertising campaign. Specifically, Sony wanted to build on the scale and stature presented in the iconic Bravia commercials, which, according to Sony, display colour like.no.other.
Sony sent 250,000 bouncy balls down the streets of San Francisco:

The renewed interest in the Canon 5D Mark II is evidenced by the flurry of forum and blog posts across the internet in the past 24 or so hours. To add more fuel to the fire, the poster who leaked yesterday’s 5D Mark II specs is at it again, with further detail, as well as rumors of a new Canon flagship camera due this fall. [Read more…]

Today, I spent some hands-on time with the Sony A350 today at Sony’s like.no.other commercial and ad shoot in downtown Miami, Florida (We’ll have more about the shoot itself in a later post.) After a few hours of shooting, I’ll have to say that I’m very impressed with this newcomer from Sony. There are a few features and functions that really set this camera apart from other entry-level offerings. [Read more…]
I received my Nikon D60 from Amazon yesterday. My initial impressions are that it’s very similar to my D40, albeit with higher resolution, which is not necessarily better. I’ll have to say that the 18-55mm VR lens as a kit lens is very welcomed in my hands. Additionally, the wider ISO range (as compared to the D40) is helpful. [Read more…]
