Beautiful Wooden Bikes..

13 06 2011

The hand-built WRD-11 mahoganny bike built by Sueshiro Sano has got to be the most beautiful.. flowing.. and well engineered bicycle in the wood bicycle category..

Not only is it made with more wood than other wooden bikes I’ve seen (including mahogany saddle rails.. seat.. handle bars.. and even rims).. It is so customized.. that because the seat post/tube is one piece (for frame strength/durability).. it needs to be measured and built according to your proper body dimensions.. No adjustments if you decide to shrink or grow..

Finally.. This Kelly Moore designed camera bag is something that I can take out with me in a casual surrounding and not look like a tourist.. a wedding photographer.. or a photojournalist..

Lots of exterior pockets and a padded interior with adjustable dividers.. And no sporty looking balls tic nylon anywhere.. Nice..





Control Your Point-And-Shoot With A Front-Mounted Ring..

9 02 2010

It’s been years since I’ve done any research on a point-and-shoot digital camera.. but an unforseen accident in Vegas has lead me to look for a new pocketable camera..

And that’s what leads me to talk about the Canon S90..

There are a lot of good things packed into this little box.. which makes this camera.. in my opinion.. the best point-and-shoot in the market today..

Inside.. you find the same large sensor you’ll find on the top of the line G11.. but has a faster f/2 lens than the G11.. 3″ 3:4 aspect LCD screen.. and for added controlability.. a rotating control ring around the lens.. which you can program to control aperture.. exposure.. shutter.. ISO.. and other functions.. And importantly.. make these changes quickly.. An additional control ring on the back.. and shortcut button add to making quick adjustments to squeeze the performance you need to take great photos..

It also shoots video.. but not in HD.. No matters.. My main task with this little guy is to shoot great photos when a lugging around a big DSLR isn’t feasible..

I Still Have My socks On Steve..

28 01 2010

Well.. I have to say that the all new iPad didn’t knock me off my feet.. but I also have to say that there were a lot of features that I really liked..

Pro: Large screen.. thin.. light.. 10 hour battery life with 1 month standy-by.. great for surfing.. photos.. email.. videos.. etc.. Tons of apps that will work on it already.. A few great apps already designed for it.. and future apps to come..  and unlocked 3GS with great pricing..

Con: No multi-tasking.. No built-in camera.. No USB  or HDMI connectors.. No behind the back/case multi-touch controlling.. or any other super-wow item..

Apple Tablet :: iPad..

My verdict:  Even as it’s missing a lot that I wanted.. it will still be a joy to use.. Gonna get the 64gig 3GS in the States.. and worry about 3GS connectivity in Canada later..

My prediction: The iPad will still sell..
