Retrospective of Harry Benson’s photographs on display at Toronto’s Liss Gallery until Dec. 16

Sat November 16, 2013

Photographer Harry Benson’s career spans six decades and includes images of some of the most influential and controversial figures in popular culture and politics. His iconic pictures of the Beatles, the Kennedys, Elizabeth Taylor and Muhammad Ali are on display at the Toronto Liss Gallery until Dec. 16.

It was his candid pictures of the beatles having a pillow fight in their Paris hotel room that sparked the beginning of an intimate relationship with the band. Benson credits the photograph of the Beatles disembarking from a plane in New York to begin their first American tour in 1964 as the defining image of his career.

Canon Teases

Sat November 9, 2013

Not to be outdone by Nikon et al., it is now Canon‘s turn to tease us with a camera that is covered with a cloth. Could it be an SL2? If this is just an upgrade to the SL1 or EOS M, that will probably annoy most people. No reason for a mysterious intro here. It certainly does not look “retro” so forget about a Canon DF. I can only think of one camera: a mirrorless version of the SL1 (aka, upgrade of the EOS M). After all, all you have to do is take the EOS M, add a hump to it to make it look DSLR-like and you are now a more or less serious player in the mirrorless DSLR category.

Epson’s First Holiday Gift Idea of the Week: PowerLite Home Cinema 2030 2D/3D 1080p 3LCD Projector

Wed November 6, 2013



The First Holiday Gift Idea of the Week:

Press ‘pause’ on life and ‘play’ on family time with the Epson Home Cinema 2030 Projector

The holidays can be the most wonderful time of the year and also the busiest. There are long gift and to-do lists to ensure that all the shopping, gift wrapping and party planning gets done.

Sometimes you have to remind yourself to slow down and enjoy the moment with the people closest to you. What better way is there to get close than to make some hot chocolate, cuddle up under blankets and press “play” on a classic holiday movie?

Epson’s PowerLite Home Cinema 2030 is the perfect companion for your much needed movie night and can make Santa look 25 times larger than on your 60-inch TV with up to 300-inches of image projection. This projector offers a 2D and 3D cinematic experience with full HD 1080p technology. It also features Bright 3D Drive Technology which minimizes the blackout time of 3D glasses and provides greater brightness of 3D images.

Sony Files Patent For the Alpha 5, A Full Frame MIrrorless In the Body Of the Nex-5

Fri November 1, 2013

Sony has apparently filed a design patent [Google translated] for a compact 35mm full frame mirrorless (tentatively dubbed the Alpha α5?) in the body the size of the Nex-5 and using the E-mount. Don’t know if they have succeeded yet or if it’s just their pre-emptive attack to lay claim to all future compact 35mm mirrorless designs.

How Do You Photograph A President? Pete Souza Talks About Photographing President Barack Obama

Thu October 31, 2013

Pete Souza is the chief White House photographer and has access and permission to photograph President Obama as the latter goes about doing his job as “leader of the free world.” We’ve seen many of his photos on Flickr and I remember a TV documentary about the incredible access he has to photograph pretty much what and when he wants, and then hang selected photos on the walls of the West Wing for the President and the White House staff to see.

In this interview with PDN, he talks a bit about how he goes about doing his job photographing the president without being in the way. An interesting aside: no photo can be deleted; every photo gets archived under the Presidential Records Act.

Read the interview at: PDN.
