Add Wi-Fi To Your Camera With the Eyefi Mobi Card

Add Wi-Fi To Your Camera With the Eyefi Mobi Card

If you read my camera reviews and buying guides regularly then you know many digital cameras now have built-in Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi allows you to wirelessly transfer photos and videos to your Smart Phone so you can share them to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. But what if you don’t want or can’t afford a new […]

Fujifilm X-T10 – Smaller Mirrorless Camera

Fujifilm X-T10 – Smaller Mirrorless Camera

I haven’t written much here about Fujifilm’s X-Series mirrorless cameras because they fall into a sort of gray area for me, between smaller mirrorless systems and DSLRs. It’s not that they aren’t good cameras – they’re excellent. They’re just kind of big for my taste. So I was excited to see Fujifilm’s X-T10 camera announcement, […]

Fine Art Mountain Bike Photography

Fine Art Mountain Bike Photography

My photographic journey began about 30 years ago with a Pentax 35mm SLR, a manual focus 50mm lens, black-and-white film and my college darkroom. I started doing fine art mountain bike photography about 10 years later. Things sure have changed since I started taking pictures but I’m still obsessed with photographing everything I experience and […]

2015 Alta Closing Day Photos

2015 Alta Closing Day Photos

The lifts have stopped and the 2014/15 ski season is officially over in Utah – for the resorts, anyway. There’s still snow up there and it looks like more is on the way. So for those skiers who are willing to earn their turns, there are probably a few good days left. I was at […]

Proview GoPro Mount iPhone Case

I recently stumbled across this very cool Smart Phone POV video accessory – a GoPro mount iPhone case. The Proview GoPro is a phone case with a built-in GoPro mount. It lets you use your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S5 as a both a GoPro grip and attached live view display, effectively turning your phone […]

Best Photos of 2014

Best Photos of 2014

As a photographer, it’s always interesting to take a look back and see what photos worked and what didn’t. One way to measure photographic success is by making an “Interestingness” Flickr Album. According to Flickr’s super-secret “Interestingness” algorithm, the photos in my Most Interesting Photos Of 2014 gallery are, well – interesting. I don’t know […]

Alta Powder Day Video – Sony 4k Action Cam

This Tuesday, March 3, 2015, was one of the best powder days I can remember. I was up before dawn and headed up the canyon to Alta with my DSLR and the new Sony 4k Action Cam. It was storm skiing all day long in Little Cottonwood Canyon and there was a lot of powder […]

Nikon D7200 DSLR Adds Wi-Fi, Improved Buffer & Better Auto Focus

It’s been nearly two years since Nikon introduced the D7100. Tonight, on the eve of the WPPI tradeshow in Las Vegas, the Nikon D7200 DSLR is announced. The D7200 is Nikon’s new top-of-the-line, Wi-Fi-equipped DX-format (APS-C sensor) enthusiast digital SLR. At first glance the D7200 may appear to just be a warmed over version of […]

2014 Red Bull Rampage Photos

2014 Red Bull Rampage Photos

Red Bull Rampage is the most prestigious and challenging freeride mountain bike competition on the planet. It takes place in the fall, near the tiny Southern Utah town of Virgin, just a few miles from Zion National Park. It’s so “extreme” it borders on the absurd. The red desert backdrop looks like something from a […]

One of the most popular ways to do this is with a POV camera (“POV,” stands for “point-of-view”). POV cameras are […]
