I wasn’t in the position to go all-out on a new digital body so I had opted for a Canon Powershot Pro 1 which did a great job for many years. … I got a great deal and a free multi-function printer which I desperately needed so I could scan those old slides. I’ve had some time to get familiar with the camera and have been getting some fantastic shots lately.
Lets just say that I was less than pleased with this product and in less than 2 weeks time it had cost me a rubber eyepiece and the device itself broke due to its poor construction quality. … I normally would have just written it off but I was so peeved at how this thing broke so easily that I wanted to let B&H know about it and hopefully prevent someone else from going through this.
Fall Colors in WA Originally uploaded by bisonium. Just got back from a great trip to Seattle. The fall colors and scenery this time of year are AMAZING. The air is clean, cold, crisp and smells like Xmas (Pines Trees) everywhere you turn. For the full set, make sure to check out my FlickR site…
Here’s a little something for all you loyal ::: bisonium.com ::: readers. I had some pretty good responses to the pics I took in Seattle, so I decided to create a desktop collection for you. The images are on FlickR, so grab ’em while they’re hot! Images were captured in Issaquah, WA (20 min…. Images are optimized for use on a 23″ Cinema Display at a resolution of 1920×1200. Mac users: If you place the images in their own folder, you can go to your Desktop & Screensaver control panel, select “Choose Folder” and drill down to where you created the folder with these images. The images look great if you tick the “Change every 5 seconds” box and watch the show. Alternatively, you can also use them as a screensaver by clicking the screen saver tab and selecting the folder as your screen saver folder.
As the 5th anniversary of 9 | 11 comes to a close, here’s a final post of some images I have taken over the years from the WTC or the surrounding areas in NYC. For the complete set, visit my flickR site.
[ via Photoshop Insider ] NEWS: Adobe Releases Camera Raw Update: The updater to Version 3.3 of Camera Raw has been posted for free download on Adobe’s Website, and includes support for a slew (that’s right, a slew) of new cameras, including the Nikon D200, so Dave Moser can finally open his shots.
“Obviously Lightroom and Aperture aim to tackle a similar set of challenges, and one might say, “Well, you guys are just releasing this beta now because Aperture is in the market.”… My second comment is that it appears that Lightroom will eventually become part of Photoshop, as well as a separate app. There’s nothing to substantiate this other than John’s comment in the Q&A about Lightroom being available together with Photoshop…. I don’t want to sound like I am coming down too hard on Adobe, I think that having Lightroom is going to be a great and much needed addition to the Adobe product line…. The thing is, we’re not going to start charging for ours until you’ve had plenty of time to kick the tires & help shape the feature set. Obviously Lightroom and Aperture aim to tackle a similar set of challenges, and one might say, “Well, you guys are just releasing this beta now because Aperture is in the market.”… For others, however, the broad range of capabilities in Bridge (e.g. integration with the Suite, previewing PDF and InDesign docs, talking to workgroup management tools, etc.) will make it a better choice some or all of the time…. Yes, Lightroom will be available on its own, and yes, we expect to make it available together with Photoshop…. For us to build the tool you want and need, your feedback is critical, so we hope you’ll visit the Project Lightroom page, click the Community tab, and let us know what you think…. * To get the intro movie via iTunes, choose Advanced->Subscribe to Podcast, then paste in http://rss.adobe.com/www/special/light_room.rss [Update: See also Jeff Schewe’s detailed intro to Lightroom on PhotoshopNews.com.]
