Playing with New Toys: EOS 1D-X and EOS 5Dmrk3

Playing with New Toys: EOS 1D-X and EOS 5Dmrk3

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.

Sports Photography: Win some, Lose some — Sometimes it Rains…

Sports Photography: Win some, Lose some — Sometimes it Rains…

(Update 30th Aug.: click to see a small (iPad compa­tible) gallery. Will be updated daily.) If I remember correctly that was Kevin Costner in “Field of Dreams” describing baseball… Well, profes­sional sports photo­graphy is like that as well. You really push hard — or don’t do it, but then you will be history pretty fast in this field… …

Shooting Synchro Skating WC 2011 — Tech Tips

Shooting Synchro Skating WC 2011 — Tech Tips

I had a couple of questions yesterday and today on some equipment — plus the always flattering “how the hell did you do that” comments — so I just thought I post quickly some pointers. Somebody asked on my cardreader… Yes, it is three Lexar readers daisy-chained together using the FW-800 port on my MBP; the fourth one …

Canon WFT and Eye-Fi — together with iPhone and iPad

Canon WFT and Eye-Fi — together with iPhone and iPad

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 for the train for a long …

iPad and ShutterSnitch — Like a Toilet in a Train

iPad and ShutterSnitch — Like a Toilet in a Train

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 my next post …

Wrapping Up Barcelona 2010 Experience

Wrapping Up Barcelona 2010 Experience

It’s been quite an experience. My two principal clients Iltalehti and Aamulehti jumped on the oppor­tunity of using the Livefeed from here and it has so far generated an audience of several thousand people. Commenting has been really scarce — but then again that’s Finland, it’s just not part of the culture to comment (unless …

Livefeed from Barcelona: On the Air

Livefeed from Barcelona: On the Air

Last night I came to the hotel and opened a good bottle of wine. Felt like I’d earned it; exhausted but flying: everything just came together in the end. I was so happy. Fast trans­mission, no hickups really, workflow getting better and better, faster and faster. For instance; before I shot the image above (the winner of 100m dash …

Livefeed from Barcelona

Livefeed from Barcelona

This is something I have been working on for a quite a long time and now it’s time to put it into a real field test. Not that the actual technique is so complicated, but it’s been interesting trying to build the workflow so that it is rock solid and easy to use in a hurry and under pressure. What …

Going Totally Wireless with Canon 1D Mk4

Going Totally Wireless with Canon 1D Mk4

I had planned to continue my post on the “suicide of the print”, but due to some change of circums­tances I save that for a later day. I just have to add that thank God I made my presen­tation that day and not later: the photo­graphers I was addressing just swept the table in our POY two days later. Seven …
