Aaaaaand we’re back!

My apologies for the recent downtime on this site. A badly implemented and supported network change at my provider lead to a lot of general pain, during which parts of PhotoNotes weren’t accessible. Following several solid hours of phone calls, around 11 different customer service agents, 3 hung up calls, 2 blind transfers to wrong departments, and 2 unnecessary modem replacements shipped out, I’ve finally got things working again. No thanks to O2 Broadband.

My apologies for any inconvenience the downtime may have caused.

Canon 5D III update

Canon keeps surprising us with updates. The company has announced a firmware update to the EOS 5D mark III, adding uncompressed HDMI and support for f/8 lenses when using the central AF sensor. Very impressive that they’ve enabled this functionality without hardware changes.

The only odd thing is that it’s a massive preannouncement. Users have to wait until April 2013 for these goodies!

Now shipping from Amazon USA!

Excitingly, my new book - the Lens - is now available across the USA from Amazon. It should just be a week or two before it’s widely available at American physical bookstores as well. Canada will follow next, and hopefully soon the UK!

News release for my new book!

Yes, my new book is almost out in the wild. Read about it here!
