I’m Weak

I mulled over this decision for a few weeks now, and I have to say the choice has been incredibly satisfying. Topping it off with some additional lenses (Sony SEL55210 and Sony SEL20F28 on the cheap) has set me up pretty well for upping my photography game over the next little while. I’ve got a lot … [More…]

New Glass

Finally got tired of the kit lens, and after looking into things enough, came across the perfect daily lens for me!

Monitors!

Okay, the 144hz idea was good for a bit, then I played BF4 on a TN panel and wasn’t overly happy. So, I ordered 2 Acer G257HUs! 2560×1440, 25″ S-IPS LCDs with DVI, HDMI, and Displayport inputs. I really did not expect the resolution bump to be this awe inspiring, but wow, am I ever … [More…]
