Samsung has just announced its latest flagship mirror-less camera and Samsung is pulling no punches. The NX1 is the only camera in its class with a 28 mega-pixel sensor and 205 phase detection auto-focusing points – that’s more AF points than the current king of the hill, the Sony a6000 – and a maximum 15 frame per second continuous shooting mode. In short, it’s … Continue reading Samsung’s NX1 is super fast auto-focusing beast!
GIFs, the looping moving images that are all the rage at the moment, aren’t just for silly cat memes. At least not anymore. Last year, Flixel made a big splash by getting a big placement on TV’s America’s Next Top Model and they haven’t looked back since. Flixel has managed to change the way fashion photographers approach stills and video by creating a single-focus application that … Continue reading Noisestash: Flixel Cinemagraph Pro for Mac (Deal of the Day)

Over the last few months I’ve found myself completely overwhelmed by the rigors of managing two websites, freelance work, and carving out personal time to deal with the important things. Up until recently I scoffed at the idea of using to-do lists and apps for keeping it all together – possibly out of some misguide pride on my part. After trying to keep it all … Continue reading Noisestash: Three apps that help organize my life

One of the more daunting tasks we will ever do willingly in this life is to become a fan. To do so means our brains begin to absorb everything about the subject merely by being exposed to it.
