Good news this morning for Canon shooters -- I just heard that Canon has dropped their price on around 33 of their EF lenses - here's a link with the lower prices (and how much each has been discounted). http://bit.ly/1EtToiP

Digging the new DJI Drones
With my +DJI  O.G. Phantom 1 drone completely out of commission (Why wont you calibrate!!!! Im going to mail you in pieces to +Barry Blanchard )  I am back to thinking about checking out its replacement.  Does the Phantom 3 do most of what I need, or do I save the money and continue to put away for the Inspire?

Check out my G+ stream for a quick video from yesterday's 3DR demo here at NAB. Lots of activity in the 4K space, stabilization and carrying cases.

Nice tour of the new Snapseed 2.0 with +Nils Kokemohr​. I'm crazy excited about this app since for the first time many of the very powerful tools from the Nik pro suite (Tonal Contrast, Glamor Glow, non destructive stackable filters, etc) are now available on mobile! Oh! It's also still free. :)

Have you ever setup to take a picture, only to get kicked out by security or police? Ever pointed a camera at someone and had them flip out over you taking a picture?  We'd love to hear from you!

Today on The Grid I will be joined by +Brad Moore  and  +Pete Collins  ​ to talk about our stories on making pictures and having challenges with authorities as well as give you a couple of things you can do (and gear to take) to make the shot, and avoid going to the slammer!  Tune in 4PM EST at http://kelbytv.com/thegrid

The best way is to inform in advance if it's allowed to take pictures, I didn't when I went to Canary Wharf, a major business district in London to take some photo´s and within 5 minutes was asked to leave out by police and security. Apparently some big businesses were there, so it wasn´t allowed to make photo´s (which I didn't know ..)

Yeah - that is what you call "nailing it" - well done +RC Concepcion !!!  I was in Budapest a week ago, out at night, and for some strange reason, RC popped in my head - like, I wish he were here hangin with me!!!

Question - do those two small tripods allow you to go portrait? Thinking the Manfrotto does not, but wanted to see if the other did or if you have other suggestions.

you just need to use a different bootloader. I use Chameleon, but there's Niresh, Clover, and Hazard as well, among others. All they do is bypass the CPU check (since you can run OSX86 on an ACPI box (Pentium 4) as I do, there's no need to bypass the EFI check). You could potentially run Yosemite on a PIII!

Thinking of This In My Office
Sitting at a Starbucks with +***** and Sabine as our espresso machine is out to get refurbished at the factory.

I've been checking out the +1st in Coffee site for the refurbished products and seeing if it has the Micro 9 one touch.

Until I saw this one ...

http://www.1stincoffee.com/refurb-jura-j9chrome.htm

I'm thinking that while this could be a little overkill for my small office - I would at least have the coffee I want as I want it.

If I do it - I swear I'll make a video to show you guys - I'll bring it on the show set so you guys can check it

I agree that those Jura machines are pretty awesome, if you really need something for your office check out the Breville machines. I love mine and I have a little engineer-y fu setting grind size and quantity with the machine doing all the real work. Too geeky?

Photo Scouting with Jet Lag in Dubai

Up entirely too early in #Dubai   - trying to comb the web to find a cool spot to make a picture of the Burj Khalifa.  Oh to comb Google Maps. 

Anyone have any ideas, lemme know!
