I’ve had my hands on an ExpoDisc Pro white balance tool from ExpoImaging for a few weeks. I’ve actually done a fair amount of shooting with it, but had not had the time to do a proper review. If you remember, we reviewed a competing product earlier.

A reader mentioned the ExpoDisc, so I thought I’d give it a try. Pictures, video, and some notes after the break.

Since Canon’s release of a firmware update for the T3i, I anticipated the Magic Lantern team’s eventual attempt to hook into the T3i’s firmware. They did manage to lay the initial foundation for full Magic Lantern (ML) development on the T3i, and there are a number of people actively developing. We won’t see a full-featured roll-out any time soon, but I expect incremental ML firmware releases to progressively roll-out features.

So, I guess this took me by surprise. It seems that Windows 7 just came out (wow – it’s been almost 2 yrs now). I have to say – I am pretty impressed by what I see of the new UI. Wow.

They do make a point in the video to mention that “because it’s a PC, it has a file system” – haha. Something else I think is interesting is that they are unifying their desktop and PC experiences. When I first heard that, I wasn’t too thrilled – but after seeing it in action, I totally dig it (especially the thumb-keyboard for tablets). Video after the break. Continue Reading…
Now that you’ve seen this, and know it exists, and can see how to build it, you are now obligated to build one for your child – if not, you’re a bad dad. Go, build it. You are only exempt if your child is old enough to legally drive.
Just kidding! I find it cool that the builder, an adult, built it for himself to race in an adult soapbox car race! Bigger pic, video of the R2 in action, and a link to the “Instructables” page are all after the break. Continue Reading…
