Sorry, I have no idea what you mean. Hope I'm not being dense. Just from doing a google search I see there is a davinci bike place but since I'm not selling bikes not sure what you mean. This is a walmart bike. :)

I recently picked up an ASUS Zenphone 2 and it's pretty great for the price! Initially I want sure how much I liked it as it's a bit bigger than I normally like and it's pretty darn heavy but it grows on you.

I also picked up a used Samsung Galaxy S5 (I'm too cheap to buy the latest) just so I could see which I prefer. While I do prefer the size of the Samsung (especially the thinness) but the battery doesn't last nearly as long and it certainly feels cheaper.

The ASUS isn't perfect, the screen isn't very bright and did I mention it's big and heavy? But for the money is great. Good processor, 3000mAh battery, solid body, 4gigs of RAM! and I got the 64 gig model that still has an SD slot and dual sim support.

Got mine at Canada Computers.

Hello Sony!

Well, I've actually been shooting with a Sony for a while now but recently it hasn't been my main camera. But yesterday I picked up a Sony a6000 and it's now my main camera.

So far, so good. I'm getting things customized and familiarizing myself with all the capabilities. I'm the type of guy that actually reads manuals and wants to know all the goodies. ;)

So, note that I'm shooting Sony I'm expecting to get invites from +Colby Brown​ to go to Iceland and from +Jason Lanier​ to go to some abandoned asylum somewhere. Waiting by my phone, guys! Waiting.

Part of the reason I mention that Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D is because I had one and out of every manual lens I've ever used, especially compared to older lenses that were actually designed to be manual, it was the one I had the very best time with because the focus throw was so easy, fast, and short. When you shoot with focus peaking, the best technique to get the best result is to "sweep" focus beyond and before the subject to quickly see what lights up and what doesn't then pick your best guess for what you want to be in focus.

So because the old lenses tend to have heavily dampened focus rings, they make this technique much harder and focus becomes much slower. I'd much rather use a more modern lens because of this factor. With the nikkor 50/1.8D, which btw, is like $125 new, I could get accurate focus on the NEX-7 nearly every time and actually came to really enjoy shooting that combo.

At any rate, these days there are far more choices of native lenses to stick on your camera, so it's not such a requirement to get the best old glass.

Have fun with your new toy :)

I happen to LOVE using a Chromebook! Its size, instant on, long battery life and low cost make them phenomenal second computers.

Shipments of Chromebooks outpaced Macs in the US for the first time in Q1 2016, that’s according to data from IDC shared during a session at Google’s I/O developer conference today.

Shooting in low light can be a challenge but I love it! I've started shooting for a local club, the Music Hall in Oshawa. I'll go every chance I get. :)
