Here’s the latest and greatest happenings in the fine, fine world of digital photography:

  • In case you hadn’t heard, Apple has recently upgraded it’s line of computers to the newest Intel Core 2 Duo processors as well as giving some of them an extra shot of RAM and improved video cards.  For example, your basic 15″ MacBook Pro comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT video card with 256MB of dedicated video memory, a 200GB hard drive, a built-in iSight camera, and that’s just to get you warmed up.  Of course it comes with OS X 10.5 Leopard and all the software you need without the junk you don’t!  What a perfect companion for the photographer on the move!  I’m drooling just writing about it!  You can check them out hereImage courtesy of Apple.com.
  • Joe McNally has posted some videos on YouTube and I highly recommend that you check them out!  One video details how he got a shot from atop the Empire State building and another is a sort of “behind the scenes” look at “The Moment It Clicks”.  Which by the way, is in stock at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com.  Be sure to jump on it if you were waiting for them to re-stock.  They won’t last long!
  • Digital Photography Review has posted a couple of new reviews on two Nikon lenses.  They recently reviewed the 18-200mm VR lens and the new 18-55mm VR zoom that now comes with the new D60.  There is a lot of good information in both articles and here’s the link for the 18-200mm VR lens as well as the link to the 18-55mm VR lens.

That’s it for this Tuesday!  Tomorrow I’ll be bringing you another lighting tip for Focus on Lighting Wednesday.  Have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow! 🙂
