Let the Games Begin: WC Athletics in Daegu, Korea

Let the Games Begin: WC Athletics in Daegu, Korea

Well, I hope my being a total idiot for the past couple of days has finally reached the end and I can more or less concentrate on work over here. I mean, how much can one person mess up: lost passport, frozen computer, unpaid accom­mo­dation, 25 kg of hand luggage (funny they should react to that… :-)), lost iPhone… …

Shooting Synchro Skating WC 2011 — Tech Tips

Shooting Synchro Skating WC 2011 — Tech Tips

I had a couple of questions yesterday and today on some equipment — plus the always flattering “how the hell did you do that” comments — so I just thought I post quickly some pointers. Somebody asked on my cardreader… Yes, it is three Lexar readers daisy-chained together using the FW-800 port on my MBP; the fourth one …

iPad and ShutterSnitch — Like a Toilet in a Train

I’ve been planning — and promising — to write about the iPad for quite a long time now. But something has always gotten on the way. But — here we go. This essay discusses an application called the ShutterS­nitch and how it is integrated it into my daily workflow. Then — hopefully in my next post …

Going Totally Wireless with Canon 1D Mk4

Going Totally Wireless with Canon 1D Mk4

I had planned to continue my post on the “suicide of the print”, but due to some change of circums­tances I save that for a later day. I just have to add that thank God I made my presen­tation that day and not later: the photo­graphers I was addressing just swept the table in our POY two days later. Seven …

Heading Home

Heading Home

Or the title could be: “Thank God it’s over”. I miss my family and I am truly happy getting home. No more Four Hills Tournament nor ski jumping — tomorrow I have a free morning and I thought of going skiing to the Kaprun Glacier for couple of hours before heading to Munich and taking an evening flight to Helsinki. …

Midway through the Four Hills Tournament

Midway through the Four Hills Tournament

(Updates on Canon EOS 1Dmrk4 on an earlier post . Updated 6th Jan 2010) I usually do not show tears­heets. But I’ll make an exception, as I think guys back home (seriously unders­taffed) have done a good job. So thank you guys. It’s half way through the tournament and this is what I have come up with so …

The Four Hills Tournament

The Four Hills Tournament

(Updates on Canon EOS D1mrk4 are in my previous post. Updated 6th Jan. 2010) Rainy days in Oberstdorf are over — and now it is rainy days in Insbruck. Got here this afternoon and will commute to Garmisch-Parten­­kirchen now for a couple of days. But it’s nice having the same hotel for several days in a row and …

Canon EOS 1D mrk4 in Action

(UPDATED 6th Jan. 2010) I shot my first 500 or so work images with the production model Canon EOS 1Dmrk4 ( EOS-1D Mk4, EOS-1D Mk IV, EOS-1D mark 4, EOS-1D mrk 4) today and I was surprised. Not only was the quality of the images with the higher ISOs very nice, but the autofocus performed even better than I had antici­pated. …

Canon EOS1D mrk4 — Production Model

Canon EOS1D mrk4 — Production Model

Honestly, I didn’t believe it possible, but my trusted camera-dealer pushed lots of buttons, made lots of phonecalls, twisted arms, maybe killed someone, I really do not know… but he made it happen. So I got a production model Canon 1Dmrk4 in my hands just before Christmas. Now, I will respect the holidays and for the next three days I won’t touch …
