Darkness, a great iPhone app for Photographers!

This iPhone app is a super app for photographers! Darkness doesn't keep you in the dark when it comes to knowing times for sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset and much more!

Darkness is just $0.99!

The Sandisk 16 GB CF UDMA 60 MB/sec cards Rock!

Fellow photographers ask me what CF cards I use with my Canon 7D. Since the Canon 7D has two digic IV processors, it can take advantage of the UDMA card speeds. UDMA cards can get expensive but I have found the SanDisk 16GB CF UDMA 60MB/sec to work great! I rarely fill up the buffer when shooting BIF and I shoot RAW too!

For the money, the SanDisk 16GB CF 60MB/sec card for $111.00/card on Amazon get the job done. I carry 3 of these cards in my photog vest.

Also Calumet, just released their new brand of 16GB UDMA cards which writes at 63MB/sec. They are $145.00/card.

Bald Eagle Photoshoot Results!

I went to two wildlife areas today to hunt for the most amazing bird, the bald eagle. I found a few including a beautiful juvenile bald eagle.

I am looking forward to my first Iowa trip in January 2010 to photograph bald eagles at the Mississippi River.

Here are  few images from today:

I finally saw 2012!

It was ok. As a sci-fi fan, the special effects were amazing and the blu ray (when it is available) will have great audio "demos" but I found the plot a little corny. I am really looking forward to seeing Avatar in 3D. This movie sounds like a real good one.. if you like sci-fi, that is!

Welcome to Mark's Musings!

Look for my thoughts on canon,.digital photography, home theater, the movies and whatever else crosses my mind!
