Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga Review
I’ve recently got the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga for business travel, and I absolutely love the design. The Macbook Pro I’ve had before just don’t feel right in hand, and the keyboard and trackpad on the macbook pro is absolutely horrendous for prolonged use, not to mention the utterly ugly low res non-touch screen (exclude the overly priced retina models)
What I really like about the thinkpad yoga:
What I want to see improved:
Enough said, here are some photos that shows the beauty of the Thinkpad design. And as always, you can purchase one directly from Amazon
Been a photographer, you kinda gets tired of lugging around a heavy piece of metal everywhere you go. I’ve always thought the genius idea of a Micro Four Third sensor design would solve most of the problem we face (weight & size), and be suitable for 95% of the situation we need (all but the most low light situations and sports photography).
So I bought a used Panasonic GF5 Kit with 14-42mm lens to give it a shot. And it didn’t disappoint! Check out some images taken from last couple days with the Panasonic GF5.
Deal link is here:
Cameta Camera has an awesome deal for Olympus E-PL2 micro 4/3 mirror less camera with 14-42mm interchangeable zoom lens. Price is cheaper than some sub-par performance point and shoot. Grab it while it lasts. It also comes with a full 1 year warranty.
I have recently switched from All Nikon gears to All Canon, after 12 years using Nikon bodies and lenses. And the Canon 5D Mark III is my first Canon DSLR body. Below, I will try to list and compare some key factors between Canon 5D Mark III and my last camera, a Nikon D700.
Pros of Canon 5D Mark III compared to Nikon D700:
Pros compared to 5D Mark II (which I borrowed for comparison purpose):
Cons of 5D Mark III (compared to Nikon D700):
In the end, whether a Nikon or Canon will get the job done, it ends up been which system do you feel most comfortable to use with.
I honestly think that the 5D Mark II is a much better value, if you don’t need the faster continuous shooting rate or improved video recording functions.
I hope my review can help you in deciding for the correct camera to own.
Excellent deal for today, Adorama has the ultra high resolution Nikon D800 camera body (refurbished) for only $2299 with free shipping. To my understanding the refurbished item from Nikon is indistinguishable from brand new items that Nikon has to offer. I would totally grab one if I’m a Nikon user.
The D800 is overall well received by the photography community, and the ultra high pixel count is great for studio photography and/or landscape work. While the continues shooting rate is a bit on the low side, it is not well suited for wedding/sports photography. You may still look into D700 for such application.
The awesome Canon 5D Mark II full frame digital SLR camera is on sale at Amazon for just $1529, cheapest price around, and lowest price around for a brand new USA model. It’s the camera of choice for my wife, she liked the ergonomics of the 5D Mark II more so than my 5D Mark III. And for this unbeatable low price, it would be wise to grab one quick before they are all gone.
High ISO noise is well controlled on 5D Mark II, and compared to the similarly priced Nikon D700 (which I used for the past 4 years) full frame camera, 5d Mark II offers 1080p HD video recording functionality where the Nikon D700 completely lacks.
Last week was the grand opening of a brand new wing in Fairchild Botanical Garden. The Fairchild Butterfly Conservatory. We went over and snapped a few photos. Fun place to explore for the entire family.
Having just recently switched from Nikon gear to all Canon gears, I was also able to record a video using our new gear. Check out the video below.
Had some fun at the Homestead, FL air show
The thunderous roar of the United States Air Force Thunderbird’s F-16 demonstration team will be tearing through the skies over Homestead Air reserve Base during the 2012 Wings Over Homestead Air Show, Nov 3 & 4. The event is a FREE family event and open to the public. There will be numerous performers, various static displays to see, a variety of food and beverages for sale, and plenty of fun for the whole family.

Also recently did a small photo shoot around the office for a friend’s fixie bike. Custom weld with pimped up wheels and Chris King headset. Yum.
