Josef Hoflehner books

This past Xmas I wanted to get myself a nice book as a present... and ended getting my self three!

I just could not choose between any of Josef Hoflehner books and if it wasn't for money restrictions I would have bought them all.
But I had to choose, and so I chose three: China, Unleashed II and ZNZ.

Just a couple of words: Sublime and Gorgeous.

Go and get them if you can!

Edge 80

Lensbaby have announced their new Edge 80 optic this week, and I find myself wanting one...

Have been thinking about an 85mm lens for some possible portraits and this tilt optic could fill that gap at a quite reasonable price, although the price in EUR or GBP has not been announced yet.

I already own a Lensbaby and I am happy with the results ... unusual slices of focus and lovely blurring. I must post some on my website soon!

Stolen Nikon Gear

Last Saturday (11th Feb 12) I was at the Nikon NPS roadshow in Dublin. I got the invitation when buying the new Nikon D800E at Berminghams (thank you!).

At the show Nikon had in loads of lenses big and small, a few coolpix cameras and a few DSLR cameras, including one (or maybe two) new D4 and one D800.
I was lucky enough to be able to handle the D800 for a couple of minutes and really liked the feel of it on my hands. Can't wait to get mine in March/April. :)

Anyway, as you many know by now, the shocking news is that pretty much all the gear that Nikon had on show was stolen from a van that same evening!

I read it first on and they quoted as their source the website.

So beware of cheap Nikon stock over the next while... all the serial numbers are available here.

The Start

I suppose every blog needs a starting point. This is it. 

I still need to find out how to change the template and how to really work this, but I hope I can keep it up.
And keep it up with somehow interesting things that someone might want to read!

See you soon
