Adobe Bridge CC DAM is free to everyone

Previously the Adobe Bridge DAM (digital asset manager) was bundled with Photoshop, but today I learned on a forum that some time back Adobe unbundled it and also made it free for everyone. It also gets regular updates to recognize new raw files, bug fixes, etc. http://www.adobe.com/products/bridge....

Luminous Tree in California

A luminous tree in California in 2004. For the last few days I have been working on old California photos in Lightroom, from 1984 to 2010 (last time I was there), to make a new California gallery on my website. http://www.bakubo.com/Galleries%202/California/slides/CRW_3563.jpg Let's make this a Tree...

Bought a Dell U2415 monitor

I have been using various laptops for all my photo work since 2006. Even before 2006 I sometimes used laptops, but back then I would sometimes be in one place for quite awhile so at those times I used desktops. My last desktop was one I bought in 2005. I added a 19" IPS LCD monitor that was wel...

Future of A mount

Of course I have no special knowledge or insight into what Sony is thinking and I don't make predictions about these things since I most certainly don't know, but it seems to me that there is a good likelihood that Sony will keep the A mount alive for a long time. How many A mount lenses are out in ...

Sony/Panasonic in Japan

I have probably mentioned before about the way Sony and Panasonic sell their cameras here in Japan which makes them rather unattractive and rarely bought by most non-Japanese residents. They have a Japanese-only menu that cannot be changed. A few stores sell a subset of the models as "internati...

Sabrina sells us a B&H projector

In this 1959 ad Sabrina is selling us a B&H slide projector. I don't know who Sabrina is and I don't know why B&H chose her for the ad. It is an eye catching advertisement though. I guess those ad men in the 1950s knew something though and must have had their hard to fathom reasons for choos...

DxO: Sony A900 vs Olympus E-M10II

I have been using m4/3 since April 2012. For the types of things I mostly photograph and the way I do it the smaller size and lower weight of all the gear is very welcome. The Sony sensors in the Olympus bodies are quite good and, for me, I am pretty happy with them. I was just curious on this late ...

KM Maxxum/Dynax/Alpha 7D jpegs

I was browsing through some of my old photos in Lightroom today and the wonderful colors of so many of my old 7D jpegs really stand out. I had two 7D bodies. KM couldn't fix my first one so replaced it with a new one and finally after 5-6 trips to KM USA, KM Canada, and Sony. I ended up getting a fu...

Yashica Electro 35 in his hands

We are still here in Kuala Lumpur and while walking in a shopping mall I happened to see this big wall mural advertising something. I noticed that the young guy has an Yashica Electro 35 in his hands. I bought one as a Christmas gift for someone in 1977. I bet the model in this advertisement had no ...

Smartphone cases in Asia

We are in Kuala Lumpur right now and yesterday I saw these rather unusual smartphone cases for women. To be used with the larger type smartphones such as the iphone 6. I guess with large smartphones it is helpful to have a carrying strap. OLYC3610.jpg The white one on the left is shaped like a camer...

Chinoike jigoku in Beppu

A couple of weeks ago we took a 3 hour ferry from Shikoku to Kyushu for a short one week trip. The first few days we stayed in Beppu. I was last there in 1985 on my very first trip to Japan! While in Beppu I visited the Chinoike jigoku (Blood Pond Hell -- hot spring). I was there in 1985 on my first...
