Do You Have Your Attention?

One of your most valuable assets is your attention. What sights get before our human eyes, and what words get into our human ears, influence us image-bearers of God and bring deep and lasting impact in the world. Including how we spend our money. In a previous generation, the largest companies sold oil and gasoline. Today, the largest companies sell human attention. Facebook and Instagram want your attention, to sell it to advertisers. Google and YouTube want your attention for the same rea...

Canon 85mm f/1.2 RF

Canon's new everybody-else-killer lens Canon has a long history of balls-to-the-wall, take-no-prisoners lens specs. Even way back in the days of FL lenses (starting in 1964), much less FDs (starting in 1971), Canon distinguished itself from staid, conservative Nikon by offering big, fast lenses with go-for-it specs. Now, with the new RF mount, Canon's no doubt gleeful lens designers are pouncing on the new mount's generous possibilities with abandon. They're also being freed from the no. 2 le...

Clean and attractive Should Fuji stop emblazoning the word "Fujifilm" on the front of all its digital cameras? Wouldn't "Fuji" do just as nicely? Changes happen. Pentaxes used to be made by Asahi and were engraved "Asahi Pentax." Contax, as a marque name, was owned by Yashica which was eventually bought by Kyocera, but none of the cameras said "Yashica" or "Kyocera" on the front of the prism. Nikons used to be made by a company called Nippon Kōgaku (Kōgyō Kabushikigaisha, 日本光学工業株式会社, Japan Op...

The Very Best Camera Deal In the Entire Universe Right at This Moment

Beat this Submitted for your approval: my candidate for the best all-around bang-for-buck bargain in the entire camera universe right now, the Fujifilm X-H1 with battery grip for $1,299. Big investmentThe X-H1 appears to be an example of the "928 paradigm." The Porsche 928 was introduced in 1978 to replace the aging and technologically questionable 911, which had been very popular as a status symbol during the 1960s and early '70s. But sales had declined as the '70s wore on. Flush with cash, ...

How to shoot smooth timelapse of fast moving subjects during the day

Timelapses are a lot of fun to shoot. I don’t shoot them anywhere near as often as I would like, but I try to shoot them as often as I possibly can. Shooting them in daylight, though, can present some challenges, especially if you have fast-moving subjects like people or vehicles. Yes, when it comes […] The post How to shoot smooth timelapse of fast moving subjects during the day appeared first on DIY Photography.

Facebook promised to curb anti-vaccine content but 2 months later Instagram still has lots of it

It's now been two months since Facebook promised to take action to limit the spread of disinformation about vaccines. Two months later, anti-vaccination posts and a #vaccineskill tag still appear prominently all over Facebook-owned Instagram. Kaya Yurieff at CNN reports that “Two months after Facebook pledged to fight vaccine misinformation on its platforms, and in the midst of a measles outbreak in New York City,” Instagram is still serving up plenty of posts from anti-vaccination accounts (...

Busch Beer reveals a millennial-themed race car, and (of course) it's millennial pink

"Millennial pink” has appeared on everything from phones to fashion, and now it's crossing another threshold. Busch Beer revealed a millennial-themed race car for Kevin Harvick, who will drive it in this month's Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race. The joke is on Harvick, who is 43, too old to be a millennial. Back in November, Busch Beer bet that Harvick would win the Homestead-Miami Speedway race -- and if not, it promised to sponsor a car with a millennial-themed paint job for him. "Old gu...

18 Times Celebrities Made The Ponytail Cool For Summer

Blame Gretchen Wieners' circa-2004 mandate, but for a long time, we treated wearing a ponytail like sporting our favorite pair of ratty sweatpants in public: lazy, low-effort, and only to be done once a week max. But, much like the Plastics' other style guidelines of only wearing jeans on Fridays and never rocking a tank top two days in a row, Gretchen's unflattering opinion of the humble ponytail was sorely misguided — and Hollywood's biggest stars are here to prove it.From Gabrielle Union and...

The Android-powered Pilot Era 8K 24fps 360° camera with in-camera stitching is now available

We first mentioned the Pilot Era last month after we spotted it at NAB 2019 in Las Vegas. It’s a 360° camera with some serious muscle.

It’s Android-powered, has in-camera stitching all the way up to 8K and half a […] The post The Android-powered Pilot Era 8K 24fps 360° camera with in-camera stitching is now available appeared first on DIY Photography.

Traveling and hiking with cats

For outdoorsy people the world over, it’s common — expected, even — that, while out on hikes, you’ll run into fellow hikers bringing their dogs along to enjoy the fresh air and exercise.

And pics of these hecking cute “cattos” are taking over social media, as well as hiking trails, urban bike paths, and outdoor spaces everywhere.

Farsali Skintune Blur Perfecting Primer Serum Not What Instagram Is Telling You But Not Bad Either

I purchased the smaller, 0.34 oz dropper bottle of Farsali Skintune Blur Perfecting Primer Serum ($22-$54) last week during the Sephora sale. It’s taken me literally ages to purchase anything Farsali because I was just utterly turned off to the brand due to the constant hype on Instagram and youTube. You ever been curious about a certain brand or product but you’re just totally turned off to it when it’s shoved in your face constantly? That’s pretty much how I felt about Farsali.

A Shadow Intelligence by Oliver Harris – Review

As a big fan of Oliver Harris’s Nick Belsey police thrillers, I came to this book loaded for bear, expecting a rollicking ride in the grips of a dark hero operating on the fringes of legality/lethality. I ended up getting scooped up and swallowed whole. Damn, Harris knows what he is talking about, and damn if he doesn’t stream that knowledge hard and fast through a sniper’s ricocheting trickshot of a plot. We begin with MI6 agent Eliot Kane, man of many identities and worlds, getting pulled from...

Did This Royal Sussex Instagram Post Just Become The Most-Liked Royal IG Of All Time?

Forget About If-Then Thinking

We live in an age of unprecedented freedom, choice and opportunity. It used to be the case that you needed significant startup capital if you wanted to start a business of your own. This meant that you either had to have the money already (in which case you were already at least somewhat wealthy), you had to raise the capital from investors (in which case you’d have to give up some equity), or you had to take out a business loan (at an additional cost to you over the long term as you paid back t...
