Got around to updating some of the static content around here. Even the menus got a bit of a shuffling around.

This makes me glad that I didn’t go ahead with that Creative Cloud subscription after all.

Nikon D800.

June 20, 2012

Last week my D800 finally arrived at Vistek. I couldn’t have been more excited to go and pick it up.

I’ve only been able to take it out once and my initial impression is a favourable one. It’s a little heavier than my old D200 but the larger view finder makes it much easier to compose shots. Whilst I haven’t done any formal testing, it’s low light performance seems vastly superior.

I’m looking forward to trying it out at a book launch tomorrow where it should be suitably dark.

Low light performance was one of the main reasons I bought this thing.

Nikon Canada.

May 26, 2012

I’m being as patient as I can but Nikon Canada sure are taking their time with the D800. I’d ordered mine months ago and it’s still not here. I’ve heard that I may see it next month.

Fingers crossed.

Schlock Mercenary – The Comic Space Opera by Howard Tayler.

Howard and the Schlock Mercenary team have rolled out a new site design for his web comic. It’s much cleaner than the previous one. Very nice job Howard. If you haven’t checked it out then head over there NOW! Great, well written stories, nice artwork, and always good for a chuckle.

Netflix Comes to Canada.

Netflix Canada – Unlimited TV Shows Online & Movies Online.

It’s arrived in Canada, finally! But here’s my take. The Canadian version of this service is great if you are a movie junkie but TV? Not so much. I don’t see any of my favourite shows. NCIS, Stargate, et al… The site says, “Not Available”.

I had hoped this could be a cheap replacement for my ridiculously expensive cable service. Nice try Netflix but not yet.
