As filmmaker, videographer for the past 10 years I almost forgot the joy of photography. I have been using a Canon 7D and most recently a 60D for video, but now once in a while I turn it on to photo – (yes funny how I bought the camera to shoot video!) and I snap away. I come to enjoy taking a few detail shots at weddings mainly for myself interest, but had an opportunity to pop in at a wedding Lynn Fletcher doing and took a few detail shots, hoping she could use them on her website or elsewhere. The lighting guys were testing their system doing a last minute check , so had a mixture of lights going on from white to pink to red.
It’s amazing with what you can do with the light that exists in a room without a flash, that is if you have the right lens. All technical things aside, it was a few shots, but I was like a little kid with a new toy, except the new toy wasn’t so new, it was like I discovered that the toy actually was like a transformer becoming something I never knew I would like soo much again. Hopefully I’ll be able to take some time and shoot some more stuff and post on the website. For now back to filming and editing.
Every one knows the Mac Mini is that little box that can. The little box came out a few years back and made a big impact on the PC world , when it allowed PC owners a chance to make a small investment in this Apple product that only needed a monitor, keyboard and mouse, which most PC owners had.
The latest Mac Mini has made things easier to replace RAM and hard drives. It used to be you needed a spanner to crack it open , very difficult and not really worth the head ache. It’s smaller now and even allows it to be used as a server. I know some companies use it for their Digital signage being more reliable than a PC when it comes to working overtime. Yes you play a little more for this than a cheap PC but after all it’s an Apple and Steve and the boys need to make more good stuff , so you pay a little more. RD is not free.
The Mac Mini can be used for 3D games with it’s great graphics card inside that move at great speeds. I recently saw an article comparing the Mac Mini and Apple TV and really they are two different animals so why compare. I know one thing is that this would certainly be a good potential Media Centre with the added addition of HDMI connection to display on your latest HD TV, 800 Firewire and 4 USB ports, super drive DVD recorder. Oh yeah forgot it’s more enviro friendly a it only uses 10 watts of power.
I think I’ll replace my old family 17 inch IMac , a new 22 inch screen can be had for $150 now adays.
