A Rose of Any Other Kind
Chasing That Feeling
We adopted two pooches over the weekend, they’re originally from a shelter over in Montreal, Canada. The pups are a Shih Zu/Maltese mix, 9 months old, and weigh in at 7 & 9 lbs (3.14 & 4 kg). They’re remarkably energetic and have succeeded in freaking out the cat. It’s interesting to watch since they’ll gang up on her, one going around the left side while the other circles around the right. Plus they’re just as fast as the cat, so her only advantage is her ability to go vertical. So now my bedroom is the designated cat zone, with a baby gate to prevent raids, while the office is the DMZ.
Personally I love the classic look.. Plus you can operate the shutter speed and every other setting manually. You can also shoot in either JPEG or RAW. If it had an actual viewfinder this thing would be perfect.
No price or release date but it will probably be in the 700 dollar range.

I recently read this interview with New York Times Assistant Editor of Photography, Michelle McNally.
Turns out that the NYT photo department is run on Apple hardware, among other interesting facts.
Overall an interesting read.
Update: Forgot about the stupid registration login at the New York Times site. You can get around that by using a fake login provided by bugmenot.com
