Sandisk's Portable SSD

My recent workshops to Svalbard and then to New Zealand taught me a salutary lesson about taking sufficient storage space. Originally, I was going to Svalbard for 20 days, then back home before visiting Middlehurst in New Zealand for a fortnight or so. With the SAS pilot strike in Norway, I spent another 10 days in Svalbard before flying directly to Middlehurst. Storage was going to be an issue!

Fujifilm's X-H2s On Review

Now, I might have my chronology a little out of kilter, but I reckon Sony and Canon wildlife photographers have had a leg up on Nikon and Fujifilm shooters for a year or so because of their subject-based autofocus. However, the scales have evened out and Nikon now offers deep learning for subject autofocus and Fujifilm's X-H2s has also hits the ground running with its subject detection system for animals, birds, automobiles, motorcycles and bikes, airplanes and trains.

Canson @ Middlehurst Photography Experience

Tony Hewitt and I discuss what we call our Middlehurst event - is it an art photography workshop, a retreat, an experience or an adventure? Pick your descriptor - in many ways, they all apply.

However, one of the things Tony and I agree on completely is the paper we choose to print our work on - Canson. Okay, so we're both Canson ambassadors and Rob Gatto from Kayell helps our groups out with some paper each year at Middlehurst - but Tony and I could use any paper we wanted to. Certainly we try new papers from time to time, but it's always Canson we return to. And while I have my favourites, I think that favourite is in the process of changing.
