Things We Love: Leica Table Tripods and Ball Heads

Author: admin  |  Category: Best Photo Sharing, Digital Cameras

digital cameras best photo sharing

Thirty-something years ago, I needed a sturdy camera support that would enable me to take a series of photographs from ground level. After a bit of shopping around, I purchased a Leica Tabletop Tripod and a Leica Ball Head. Since that time my “Leica-pod” has traveled the world with me on hundreds of assignments and, a few scuffs and scratches aside, it’s as tight, ready, and able as it was the day I purchased it. It was pricey at the time (and still is), but worth every shekel.

Made of solid, black anodized aluminum, the Leica Tabletop Tripod consists of three legs held together by a single lock mechanism. Each of the legs can be rotated 360°, which makes it possible to configure the legs in any number of positions. When traveling, the legs fold flat, making it easy to stow away when not in use.

To go along with the tripod base, Leica offers a selection of ball heads in a choice of shapes and sizes. The most popular Leica ball heads are the Leica Ball Head (18 Long), and Leica Ball Head (18 Short), which are 5.3 and 3.3″ tall respectively and available in a choice  of silver or black.

The Leica Tabletop Tripod weighs about 5 oz, and the small and large ball heads weigh 8.1 and 8.8 oz, respectively. The total load capacity for the Leica Tabletop Tripod / Ball Head combination is a bit over 15 lb, and it doesn’t wobble under the load.

Mobile World Congress 2017: Return of the Tank

Author: admin  |  Category: Best Photo Sharing, Digital Cameras

One of the most anticipated products announced at 2017’s Mobile World Congress might not be what you’d expect. The Nokia 3310 feature phone is back, and it’s as hot (and durable) as a Finnish sauna rock. The 3310’s granddaddy was released all the way back in 2000, and gained cult appreciation for its dependability and resistance to damage, with at least one example from its first year on sale still going strong. Oh, and Snake. People really, really like Snake.

The new handset retains its forebear’s form factor but has a larger 2.4″ screen (in color!), a 2MP camera with flash, FM radio, a headphone jack, and room for a microSD card. Its battery promises up to 22 hours of talk time and a month on standby, which means you’ll have more time than ever to play the updated version of, you guessed it, Snake. Will the new 3310 retain its predecessor’s reputation for indestructability? Only time, and a cycle or two in the washing machine, will tell.

Bluefish444 is an Australian-based manufacturer of video input/output solutions. Its focus is almost solely on advanced SDI and HDMI I/O cards and accompanying software, and the company offers options for video professionals and developers. Bluefish444 I/O cards are among the priciest, but Bluefish444, nonetheless, has a customer base of more than 21,000. Most of the customers are businesses. Bluefish444 is repeatedly the first to break many grounds, and its innovations have introduced new ways of doing things for many companies.

BlueFish444 Epoch | 4K Supernova

Bluefish444 was the first to supply uncompressed 4K UltraHD SDI I/O workflows. It was the first to deliver real-time uncompressed 4:4:4 SDI I/O for digital intermediate workflows, the first to offer Adobe Premiere-enabled 4K SDI live capture, and the first to provide a 4K SDI playout solution for Premiere, Avid Media Composer, and Assimilate SCRATCH.

Bluefish444 cards are also superbly built. They’re famed for what Bluefish444 calls the “Bluefish444 Advantage”—a combination of acquisition quality, driver stability, and hardware reliability.

Bluefish444 Advantage

Bluefish444 maintains SDI acquisition quality from a camera regardless of bit depth or resolution. Bluefish444 cards operate on a 12-bit video processing engine, and 8-, 10-, and 12-bit 4K/2K/HD/SD files are processed with equal 12-bit precision during capture, preview, and master. 12-bit processing provides four times the quality of the more common 10-bit processing—4,096 discrete values of red, green, and blue per pixel in contrast to 1,024 per pixel. Bluefish444 has been developing this proprietary 12-bit engine continuously for more than a decade.

Keep Your Business Connected with NAS

Author: admin  |  Category: Best Photo Sharing, Digital Cameras

digital cameras best photo sharing

At its most basic, a Network Attached Storage device (NAS) is a single or multi-bay system that can share files among multiple systems, whether over a wired or wireless network connection. While most NAS devices are used largely for storage and sharing files, their capabilities stretch far beyond. A NAS may also be used as a multimedia server via UPnP and DLNA protocols to share and stream audio, video, and photos to gaming consoles, tablets, phones, and other computers, as well as be configured as FTP, Web, email, surveillance, and print servers, while some can even handle the workloads of photographers, filmmakers, and graphic designers who focus on 4K and 3D workflows. Given all the capabilities of a NAS, it’s no surprise that they can be quite useful in business environments, where they can help to improve and enhance multi-user workflows.

Professional NAS Businesses Uses

Businesses that can benefit from a NAS are those that need to store large amounts of data and need to access it remotely, whether on a desktop, laptop, or mobile device. While smaller companies may be content with wired office networks, larger ones will appreciate the benefits of wireless networking. Even if their NAS doesn’t have integrated Wi-Fi, so long as it is plugged into their main network hub, it can still be accessed via a wireless connection, thanks to cloud-management software. A NAS could also be used to perform individual system backups that are stored at the network level, and some also have built-in RAID protection, which can help to provide some data redundancy in the case of a drive failure. Additionally, as your business grows, you won’t have to worry about purchasing a new NAS to accommodate any increased workflows, since most NAS devices can be paired with an expansion unit.

A Guide to Phones for Business Travelers

Author: admin  |  Category: Best Photo Sharing, Digital Cameras

For most people, traveling isn’t much fun. Tickets are expensive, planes are cramped, and taxi drivers prefer a spiral route over a direct one to your destination. If you’re traveling for business, knowing that you’ll spend your stay in meetings instead of on the beach or exploring a new city makes your trip that much more unpleasant.

A good smartphone can help alleviate your pain, though, even more than an equivalently priced hotel minibar chocolate. So, if you’re shopping for a new handset that will meet your needs on the road, here’s our guide to some features and accessories to consider.

International travelers who want to connect in their destination country may gravitate toward a device with dual SIM cards. SIM cards act as wireless IDs, making sure that cellular towers know you’re you and preventing calls and messages from being misrouted. They have gold contacts, similar to those found on the authentication chip on a credit card, and the smallest ones, called nano-SIM cards, are about the size of the nail on your pinkie finger.

Purchasing one in a foreign country gives you a local number and helps you avoid high roaming charges, and a dual-SIM phone lets you use it without removing your home SIM card and losing contact with your country of origin.

Do More Than Just Print with Epson All-in-One Printers

Author: admin  |  Category: Best Photo Sharing, Digital Cameras

Save money. That’s the goal of everyone, whether you’re running a small business, working for a huge corporation, or simply setting up your own home office. And while the world becomes increasingly more digital, where business can be conducted via emails, there will be certain instances in which a hard copy is required. Now, when you think of printers, you probably think of all the costs, such as paper and, most notably, those blasted ink cartridges. Fortunately, Epson has created its Supertank line of all-in-one printers. Instead of using ink cartridges, the Epson Supertank printers use refillable ink tanks, which save you the cost and hassle of having to replace ink cartridges.

digital cameras best photo sharing

Designed for small to medium businesses, the Epson WorkForce ET-16500 EcoTank All-in-One Inkjet Printer is the first wide-format model in the Supertank category. It can print up to 13 x 19″ pages and has a maximum print resolution of 4800 x 1200 optimized dpi. It can also copy and scan up to 11 x 17″ pages. The printer comes with enough included ink to print up to 10,500 black and 11,000 color pages, which is the equivalent of about 50 ink cartridges for a standard inkjet printer. That’s because the WorkForce uses EcoTank refillable ink tanks. The black, cyan, magenta, and yellow ink bottles fill up the ink tanks on your printer and can potentially hold you over for up to 2 years (may vary depending on usage). The WorkForce also features PrecisionCore 4-color drop-on-demand inkjet technology, which provides laser-quality black text. Along with a 500-sheet paper capacity and a rear feed for specialty paper, the WorkForce also supports automatic duplex printing and copying. While you can send print jobs from your computer or mobile device, there’s also a 4.3″ color touchscreen for when you make your way over to the printer.
