XQD card format

BE2_9946, originally uploaded by gugs.
A new incompatible card format, somewhere between SD and CF. The good news: very fast. The bad news: expensive, there is no need for this, only Sony supports it, and the Nikon D4 6000EUR camera is the only device to use it...

iPad post prod

iPad post prod, originally uploaded by gugs.
An old look given to a "normal" picture I took a few years ago in Scotland with a D3 with the Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 lens @75mm. This is an example of what can be easily achieved with simple tools on the iPad. The tools I have used are Snapseed, an excellent picture editing program for the iPad (there are now versions for "classical" computers), developed by Nik Software, a company known for their excellent post processing filters. I then added some scratches using another tool: Film Roll on the iPad again. Even if the possibilities are not on a par with what typical editing tools offer, the ease of use and the speed make those iPad apps very attractive to try out special effects.

New York City

nyc-74 post processed, originally uploaded by gugs.
A post processed shot. This picture has been taken in Manhattan, I added an old fashioned look with Flare. I like this picture because you wouldn't think it has been taken in New York City if you don't know the place.
