As always: packing left for the last day. Thank God this is summer games, so it is basically shorts and t-shirts … and heavy rain gear – if it were winter it would be full skiing stuff, crampons, plus things to keep you warm and dry down to – 30°C. Cameras are simple: two working […]
During the past couple of weeks I have been playing with new toys – or tools, more like it. Canon Finland was kind enough to lend me the new EOS 1DX and the 5Dmrk3 to play with for couple of days. No, this is not a test, just simple first impressions.
Just a brief post to show that I actually do work for a living… Covering the “Vierschanzentournee” – or as it is called in English, the Four Hills Tournament. I did the Oberstdorf already two days ago and just finished the Garmish-Partenkirchen competition.
(Update 30th Aug.: click to see a small (iPad compatible) gallery. Will be updated daily.)

I’ve had couple of emails asking for more information on my previous post, so here we go. Been testing different scenarios, different network and workflow configurations… and I have to say, I really like this. When I compared it to a toilet in train in my previous post, somebody asked did I have to look […]
I’ve been planning – and promising – to write about the iPad for quite a long time now. But something has always gotten on the way. But – here we go. This essay discusses an application called the ShutterSnitch and how it is integrated it into my daily workflow. Then – hopefully in […]
