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… …

Some Simple iPad Stuff for Photographers

Some Simple iPad Stuff for Photographers

The iPad is now totally integrated into my daily workflow. I’ve talked about ShutterS­nitch in my two previous posts — it totally rocks — and I’ve been promising to write about the future of the print on these devices one of these days… And I will, but before that, a quick post on two workflow solutions I thought …

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 …

Canon EOS 1D mrk4: Some Afterthoughts…

Canon EOS 1D mrk4: Some Afterthoughts…

So I had to return it. Reluc­tantly. I had a long and very nice conver­sation with Olli Turtiainen of the Canon Finland about my experiences with the camera and he managed to shed light on some of my obser­va­tions. And just to prove I shot in bad, bad lighting — and also to prove I have a life outside photo­graphy ;-) — …

Canon EOS 1D mrk4: First Impressions

Canon EOS 1D mrk4: First Impressions

First, let me underline: this is not a test. I got to play around with the latest Canon flagship for c. 48 hours over the weekend. Shots some stills (about a thousand or so), shot some video (c. 30 min), played around with the settings, trying to figure out if this is such a great camera everybody is buzzing …
