“Maybe I am emotionally too close to the moment of shooting them to appreciate their value,” says Dirk Wustenhagen of his blurry captures of lonesome scenes. He adds, “I appreciate these images more over time.” Wustenhagen is a photographer who transitioned from analog snapshots to digital photography and art in the 2000s. He often appreciates his images more when revisiting them after a significant period of time has passed since their capture.

Review: Eye-Fi Pro X2 SDHC Card

Announced almost a year ago, the super powerful Eye-Fi Pro X2 cards have recently been given a boost in the form of mobile sharing. While I haven’t demoed this feature yet, I have been using this card since Photo Plus of last year. It has been tested out in a variety of cameras with different results depending on the manufacturer and build of the camera. For the sake of timeliness, this review should have been completed a while ago but was delayed over and over again to ensure that we tested it correctly.

Canon 60D gets its butt kicked by the Sony Alpha 55 & Nikon D90

DxOMark consists of a comprehensive RAW-based image quality Measurement Database and a set of Scores to evaluate and compare digital cameras and lenses

As a Nikon D90owner it gives me pleasure to see a new camera, like the Canon 60Dget ‘owned’ by my not so new Nikon D90. This information comes from DXo Mark. Canon users, I’m ready for your extreme dislike.

As far as the sensor goes, though, on DxOMark.com they compared the Nikon D90, Sony Alpha 55 and the Canon EOS 60D. The 60D did not perform as well as the Sony which had an overall score of 73 and the Nikon which also had an overall score of 73. The Canon 60D scored only 66. The site only measures sensor performance, not the overall camera. The 60D had a more solid body, and like the a55, a rotating LCD screen—which is a must for video capabilities.

We recently did a post comparing the Canon 60D, T2i and 7D. For what it’s worth, Chris swears by his 7D.
