Rentglass.com, the online lens rental store (think Netflix for lenses), will begin a “sneak preview” of their Nikon lenses starting June 20 with full service commencing on July 20, 2006. Rentglass.com has offered lenses for Canon cameras for some time. I’m looking forward to trying the service and I’ll give you my full report as soon as I can.
Storing your photos may not seem a big problem, unless you decide for a long travel with your photo camera. While modern memory cards can hold thousands of JPG files, having the same amount of RAW data may put you in trouble.
Of course, you can take a laptop with you, but for a number of situations it may appear too large and heavy. One of the solutions is a portable storage device, which is independent. In other words, one that does not require a computer to transfer data to it.
A really interesting solution is a Sanho HyperDrive COLORSPACE UDMA 2 Multimedia Storage
Strobist Boot Camp has officially started. The first of six assignments is a deceptively simple headshot. As usual, David delivers the assignment with a healthy dose of practical advice and humor. Definitely worth a read if you want to improve your off-camera lighting technique.
Flickr is hosting a juried photography exhibition called The Blink of an Eye. They’re sparse on details right now as it is just being setup but the exhibition is juried and it will be in New York in July. The display format will not be framed prints. Instead they are going to display images on monitors. The exhibition is open to all Flickr members. If you’re not a member yet, there’s no better time than right now to join. You have until June 26 to enter.
It’s about time we had another photo contest around here and so I thought I’d ask you, dear Photodoto reader, for your thoughts about potential themes (the last theme was “Beginnings” which yielded a lot of sunrises, babies, and flowers), contest format (judging, voting), and what you would like to win. Add your suggestions to the comment area below. Thanks!
