A new Nikon DX lens?...Flickr hopes to revamp its user interface...price pressure on Shutterfly...A Nikon gear splurge
- Wide-ranging Nikon DX VR lens en route? - Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 16-85mm DX SWM VR ED IF Aspherical. With the D3 now out, Nikon customers have joined Canon's in the "Should I buy only full-frame or small-frame lenses for better future-proofing?" dilemma.
- Flickr hiring senior user interface designer - I hope to see some big Flickr user interface improvements. Such as being able to cycle through larger images if I want. And cleaning up the preferences. And making it less unpleasant to add contacts, friends, and family.
- Michael Reichmann's Nikon splurge - Luminous Landscape - Michael Reichmann describes what Nikon gear he bought and why. Not really a review. What would you buy if you were starting over with a budget of something like $20,000? Jeesh!
- A scary dissection: Inside the 18-70mm DX lens - He didn't get the fungus out, but he did put the lens back together again.
- LR/Mogrify - Timothy Armes Photography - A Lightroom export utility based on the open-source ImageMagick command-line image-processing tools.
- Flickr: Photos tagged with amazingcircle - A fun polar-coordinate geometric transformation effect. I like the ones where you can see the original image posted below, for example this one of tiles: http://flickr.com/photos/24124155@N00/376865074/
- Barron's Online : What's Up With Shutterfly? - Fears of a price war in photo printing now that HP Snapfish cut prices.
- - Looks like a modest update to the A100--faster processing, faster autofocus, better screen, tweaked body. Looks like Sony is getting its footing to me.
