In the last ten years, one of the worst parts of our society has been the idea of “hustle culture” – a never-ending grind where people’s value comes from creating profit. But what happens when you hit a wall? What happens when you can no longer make your work-life fit within your real life?
Today, Sigma announced a new Contemporary Lens for Fuji X-mount cameras – the new 15-50mm F2.8 DC DN. The new lens joins the previously released X-mount fast primes: the 16mm F1.4, 30mm F1.4, and 56mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary lenses giving photographers a fast standard Zoom lens. Here’s how this lens stacks up.
We’re a little late to the party but this is one of those updates that need to be seen – earlier this week, Fujifilm and Adobe announced their intention to bring a camera to cloud (C2C) connection update that will leverage Adobe’s Frame.io collaborative workflow and tools with Fujifilm’s latest flagship camera.
While I’m a big advocate of shooting film and experimenting with your photography, I understand the reluctance to do so – especially if it means “missing out” on sharing your photos with all your friends, family, and/or fans on social media. For the most part, scanning your film negatives requires either expensive equipment, jerry-rigging lights, and your digital camera, or paying for scans with your developer (here’s a story about a really Nice one we know). For those that don’t own a “proper” camera and are not interested in buying expensive scanning gear but want to scan their negatives, the DigitaLIZA from Lomography is something to look out for.
No, Micro Four-Thirds (MFT) is not dead! I feel like at least once a year I have to write this down. I’m often asked, “MFT cameras can’t keep up with a full-frame like Sony, why bother?” To be fair, 5 years ago that question had Canon instead of Sony in it so I guess Sony should’ve stopped making cameras then. In either case, it’s a really ill-informed question equating sensor size as the only determining factor in what makes a good camera or worse, a good image.
In this episode, Alberto sits down with comedian, author, and Internet denizen, Christian Dumais. We got a chance to talk about his most recent horror-comedy collection of short stories Killing It! We discuss the history of horror-comedy, the “Outer Limits”, the Far Side, and why the horror genre is not as popular in his current home of Poland as it is in the U.S. Check out this episode to hear Killing It with Christian Dumais.
This week, Apple announced that merchants using iPhones will soon be able to accept contactless payments directly through Apple’s Apple Pay and Tap to Pay features. It’s a feature that could have major implications for payment processing at a number of merchants both small mom-and-pop shops to your major retailers. Here’s what Apple’s had to say so far.
We know, it’s been a long time in between episodes, but there’s also been a pandemic and life. The Noisecast is back and this time Alberto brings back one of the original members of The Noisecast to discuss A.I.-Powered Tractors, Foldable iPhones, and of course, Microsoft’s ridonkulous purchase of Activision/Blizzard. There were laughs, tears, and some strong language about corporations not being your friend.
WTF is an NFT? In this episode, Alberto and Paul dive headfirst into the world of NFTs and try to figure out if this is truly the next big thing in digital assets or if someone’s trying to con you out of your hard-earned Bitcoin. Also covered, who will be the next tech billionaire to run for US President, a mini-first look at the SteelSeries Aerox 3 wireless gaming mouse, and a preview of the Pluto Trigger review that’s in the works.
Alberto and Paul are back in the latest episode and with all the negativity in the world, we tried to keep it on the positive – focusing on our favorite things in tech. In this episode, we talk about the tech in our lives that we’re loving and can’t get enough of.
