The official Daft Punk video for ‘Derezzed’ is out, and it’s a cool tribute to the original film and 80s videogames, tied back to the new film with an appearance by Olivia Wilde.
I’m inclined to agree with that title.
Update: Guess I spoke too soon; my Reeder for Mac just updated with a brand new UI, featuring a 3-pane browser/viewer and more desktop-like conventions. Very nice. Get it here.
If you own a Panasonic LUMIX LX3 camera, you need to track down one of these. Its design is inspired by a hinged lens cap Ricoh designed for their GX200. It’s as great an idea as the idea to leave out an auto lens cap is stupid.
Incidentally, Ricoh is now my favorite digital camera maker after getting my GR3. Even if their industrial design team seems stuck in the 80s. Build quality is solid, weight distribution very well-considered, great usability — I thought the LX3 was an instant classic, but the GR3 makes it feel mass-produced. I think it would even hold up against the Leica D-Lux models too, in terms of handling and feeling like something ridiculously expensive.
“While Kim napped in an armchair inside the hotel waiting for our check-in (we flew in at 6am, and all the earlier photos from the WX5 were taken while walking around to pass time), I found this really cinematic light coming off the walls in the alley between our building and the next.”
I’ve started processing photos from my vacation, but this is going to need some time now that I have a full-time job (last year’s batch of over a thousand photos took less than a week, if I remember right). Since I’m going to take it at a nice and easy pace of 10+ photos a night, I’ve decided to try and write more meaningful captions to go with the photos. Here’s one I just uploaded. You can check in on them through my Flickr feed.
