There’s some thing so satisfying about getting a 3D print right on the first try! As many on you know, the new Nikon Z6 / Z7 as well as the EOS R have different flange distances which means if you try to use a magnifying loupe to clean them, it won’t work because the distance is different! Sure you could hold it higher, but that would tie a hand up. A customer actually asked me about this, so here’s my solution shipping to him tomorrow. I’ll have them on the store if anyone else wants one, it should also work on the Canon EOS R. I’ll have one coming for Sonys and Fuji’s shortly. ☺️ #nikonz6 #z7 #eosr #sensorcleaning

To me this is the biggest news coming out of #CES so far for the camera industry. (there’s also a Sharp camera MFT that does 8k) There are a few things fascinating about the Z6 Pro Res Raw update- it’s the first time I know of a previously released camera has been upgraded by official firmware to allow for RAW video capture, but the fact they are doing it over HDMI is even more impressive! ProRes RAW is about 6x smaller in file size to uncompressed 12 bit 4:4:4, basically looking at about 18-20 GB per minute of 4K video. It’ll be interesting to see how easily (or slowly) it edits, but ProRes is typically super computer processor friendly. I’m excited to try it out! Nikon is also bringing eye detection video focusing to the Z6 Z7 - pretty impressive for a first full frame camera iteration!#prores #atomos #atomosninja #nikonz6

We had so much fun these last two days. It’s been amazing to unplug. I haven’t thought about work, so that’s been amazing. It’s interesting how good food and hot tubs are after a fun day on the slopes with friends. Now for dinner, #bama , and a game of a Risk! ☺️

What’s the coolest feature of an Apple Watch? Let me know in the comments below * My family and friends have been telling me for a while I’d love one, so I finally got one today. It’s only been a couple hours, but Im very impressed, especially with the option of not needing my iPhone to make phone calls or use Apple Pay. Biometrics, texting, emails, Walkie-Talkies, iTunes, really neat! ⠀ Im just wondering what else it can do?? #applewatch #apple
