The Mighty: Sony 24-70/2.8 GM Review.

The Mighty: Sony 24-70/2.8 GM Review.

“A superb full-frame lens for a hugeh price.

it has the same high performance as the ultra-pro Canon 24-70/2.8 L II and Nikon 24-70/2.8E VR, for the same price”  says Ken Rockwell.
However he also states that this lens is some how crippled by not having built in image stabilization.

In ear headphone tweaks

You have been reading in-ear headphone web reviews for hours and days and finally bought a pair that was highly rated and within your budget (I did). [Full article here]
The disappointment when you first plugged them in and listened to your favourite track was as big as your expectation of finally getting a great pair of IEM headphones (In Ear Mmonitor)  at a decent price (I also had that experience).

Why did they sound that thin and edgy? All the reviews I had been reading rated them high and even called them “a bargain with a sound worth twice the asked price”!

After making some experiments with the included silicon tips I finally came to the solution that they didn’t fit my ear channels good enough, they didn’t manage to create an airtight chamber for the headphones to work in. That also caused them to lose level at the bottom end of the frequency range and made them sound harsh and thin.

I decided to spend a few more hours on the www to find some better headphone tips that might fit my ears better. I ended up buying four different types of tips as below, Silicone, Tree type, Memory foam (Red). The type of tips that saved me was a pair of the memory foam type made by Comply

Memoryfoam earphone tips

 

 

 

 

The solution was as simple as it was cheap, and at the end I was happy with my headphones as they now sound as good as the reviews that sold them to me indicated.

Get your stuff at AMAZON to sponsor my work :-)

Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80MM F/2.8-4E ED VR

My wet dream at the time is the NEW (2016-02-02)NIKON AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80MM F/2.8-4E ED VR lens .

NIKON AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80MM F/2.8-4E ED VR lensl

NIKON AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80MM F/2.8-4E ED VR lens

This lens would suit me just perfect as a daily driver for urban photography.
I would love it as a companion to my Nikon D7000 until I get a chance to buy the Nikon D500 at a reasonable price (might differ as that price tag is individual ;-)

Wy don’t I want the D5 as bad as this baby?
Well I don’t really like to carry more weight than necessary and the DX format is at this time (Year 2016) at a level that is beyond the FX cameras of the past years in most aspects.

I rather spend my money on geting to the shooting sites than on gear that I don’t need or can afford, this lens is just about within reach for my budget and will most likely outlast my next two or three DSLR bodys. I would have loved to write a review of it if I could, but my budget say wait a few months or a year and the initial price will 2212294583drop a bit :-)

At this time I sugest yo take a look at the site owned by most productive man on earth Ken Rockwell and his review of the Nikon 16-80mm F/2.8-4E ED

How to include Wordpress posts in a static HTML page
(Or how I did at least!)

This is the how to.

1.

I created a php file that i call ok.php (You can name it whatever)
This php file now rests in the same directory as my .html file and
contains this code:

***************************************************

<?php
$args = array( 'numberposts' => 6,

'post_status'=>"publish",'post_type'=>"post",'orderby'=>"post_date");
$postslist = get_posts( $args );
foreach ($postslist as $post) : setup_postdata($post); ?>
<div class="events">
<p><strong><?php the_date(); ?></strong></p>
<p><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?

><?php the_content(); ?></a></p>
</div>
<?php endforeach; ?>
*******************************************************
[GET THE CODE HERE opens in new window as pure text]

 

2.
In the html code between body tags i put this where I want the posts to show.

******************************************
<!--#include virtual="ok.php" -->
******************************************
[GET THE CODE HERE opens in new window as pure text]

That was the way I did it and the result can be found on
the top of this page HERE!
