An informal review of the Sony a6000 mirrorless camera paired with the Sony-Zeiss 16-70mm lens.
Not long ago, a GPS unit (I rather like the British word "satnav") that you carry around when hiking, was a geeky item for gadget freaks.These days, most fairly well-off people carry a smart phone with that capability and take it for granted, so much so that it's reasonable to wonder if there's any value left in a dedicated handheld satnav.I still rather like having one, I use it either when hiking, or mounted on my handlebars when cycling.I prefer it because it's more rugged in poor weather, and also using the GPS won't drain my phone battery.For the last few years I've used the Garmin 60CSx.It's a nice unit, but my device has a worsening fault with it freezing on startup.
So I fancied getting something new, and I settled on the Garmin Oregon 600.So far I haven't had a chance to use it on the bike, and the winter means I won't get such a chance for several more months.But I did take it for a few days hiking in Switzerland, and thought I'd share my experiences.
When I first made the move to aDigitalSLRI deliberately bought a cheaper camera - a Canon Rebel XTi/400D.I did this partly to put more money to lenses, but also becuase I knew that technology would move on and I'd be looking to replace the body in a few years.
Like many obsessive snappers, I've recently got hold of the佳能S90camera.It's small enough to fit in your pocket, but has the kind of things that people with pretensions to seriousness like: full manual controls, RAW file support, a good sensor, and an f2 lens.
Like many geeks I'm into photography.We geeks like photography because it provides the veneer of an artistic endeavor while allowing us to indulge in lots of technical details and spend money on expensive toys.A friend recently asked about my camera buying decisions, a question that prompted me to write them down.
A couple of Christmases ago Cindy gave me a麦哲伦子午线黄金GPS device.Since I'm better than the average bear at navigating, I didn't see it as something I really needed but something to play around with.Since then I've found it more an interesting toy than something I really use a lot.
I recently decided to upgrade our home server setup.I posted some thoughts about what I was planning to do here, and now I've updated this page with what I did.
A few months ago, I bought a谷歌Nexus 7平板电脑.I like to wait until I've used a device for a while before I post my experiences of it, but the disadvantage of that policy is that now the tablet I'm talking about has been superseded.That said, I'll pass on my comments anyway, since they may still be helpful to others considering their future tablet options.
One of our favorite toys over the last couple of years has been the深蓝.这是一个非常简单的装置 - 关于路由器的大小，端口电源，以太网，放大器和天线的无线LAN。它的任务是把mp3文件从服务器流式传输，并通过放大器播放。
几个月前，我发布了新的公司的笔记本电脑 - 一的MacBook Pro与Thunderbolt端口。当我得到了它开始懒懒地想获得一个霹雳显示。尽管他们的费用，和显示器的停泊站是吸引会采取行动的想法，我听说过苹果显示器的好东西。
