Este producto, denominado USB Dock Sigma, es, sin duda, uno de los accesorios más curiosos del catálogo de esta compañía japonesa. Utilizando esta base con conexión USB podemos actualizar de una forma sencilla el firmware de varias ópticas de Sigma relativamente recientes, como los objetivos 17-70 mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM | C, el 35 mm f/1.4 DG HSM | A y el 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM | S, entre otros. Para llevarlo a cabo solo tenemos que conectar la base a un puerto USB de nuestro ordenador y al objetivo. Este proceso se lleva a cabo desde el software Optimization Pro, que, además, nos permite ajustar otros parámetros esenciales de la óptica, como la velocidad del enfoque automático, el sistema de estabilización óptica o el limitador de enfoque, entre otras opciones.

What better photo to illustrate this point that this one used in propaganda by both Communists and Fascists, and in two wars a decade apart. In the late 1970s, as the gerontocractic fascism of Francisco Franco drew to a close, historians revisited his arrival onto the world stage during the Spanish Civil War, now viewed in retrospect as the Dress Rehearsal for the Second World War. They pointed out the above photo as an evidence of atrocities committed by Franco’s troops on their prisoners of war during the Civil War, an eerie precursor of Fascist crimes to come. Throughout the Civil War, both sides exploited the power of news media and newly-popular photography, at times using the same photographs. Back in 1938, the above photo was used by the Falange – the Spanish Fascists – to denounce the barbarous nature of the Spanish Republicans.

Photographing Terrain - TerraGenesis A lot has changed since Gary James wrote TerraGenesis' original article on photographing terrain back in 1999.

Foap: A New App to Help You Sell Your iPhone Photos - Technology If you read or write things on the internet, you'll know that nothing takes the life out of a post or article like a cheesy stock photo (see above). If you're trying to capture something 'authentic' about Paris, for example, a soft-focus picture of the Eiffel Tower is the last thing you want. Sure, Creative Commons makes it easy to search Flickr or Google Images for free photos licensed for public or commercial use—that's how I found the lovely butterfly above—but the reality is that many avid smartphone photographers don't upload their work to searchable databases these days. There's really no point when there are countless gigs of storage available between your pockets and the cloud.
