Waterproof Compact Cameras: Lumis TS-5

Yes you can get a massive case for your dSLR, but if you are camping and hiking, the Sony RX100 Mark III sure makes a lot of sense. It is tiny, but has a 1″ sensor and amazing 24-70 F/1.8-2.8 lens. But what if you are looking to spend time on the water, but then ...

Real Usage: Canon 5D2 and 100-400 plus Leica 8×32 and Vortex 8×26

OK, just spent eight days watching some incredible regatta and racing. Here are notes on real world use of equipment: 1. Trusty old Canon 5D2 and 100-400 F/4-F/5.6.

XBMC Gotham and MythTV…wow!

After two years of trying to make things work, things have come together, but XBMC does connect to MythTV properly. And it can see the MythTV recordings and even works for its recording and tags them. MythTV also works basically well with an ip-based HD Home Run Prime. The main open bugs are: It will ...

Wireless uplink for Unifi AP

This used to work, but suddenly it broke. Here are some tips and tricks, the main thing is that you can’t uplink from a Unifi Enterprise Pro to a regular Unifi anymore (as of 2.3.6) and you need to be set to HT20 (20MHz channels in 2.4Ghz) for this to work: Here are some valuable ...

Sublime Ninja Keyboard Shortcuts

You can’t really be a good developer if you ever have to use the mouse. I can do this for vi (yuck!), but not for sublime, so here goes.

Smith Backdrop On Sale

I just love these glasses. They cost a fortune at $239 list, but with the start of summer, you can get some good memorial day sales. REI. $175 or 20% for the Polarchromic (variable based on sun 13-20% light transmission). On the Bank of America site, you get 3 extra point per dollar, (worth 5-8%) ...

It’s raining Minolta SR-T 101 and 102s and Rokkor MC and MD lenses

Wow, I love eBay there are so many of these cameras around and there are quite a few that are refurbished and even have guarantees. Pacific Rim Camera seems like a good seller. They have 44K ratings (?!!) and specialize in vintage equipment. Plus, they tell you exactly what works and doesn’t work. The SR-T ...
