The big question however is did I end up with a high quality movie of my holiday? The answer is absolutely. After leaving out all of the high speed footage from the sun-roof, I ended up with a 30 minute movie which I edited in Final Cut Pro, added some colour effects and music, and i could not be happier.
In summing up the Zeiss 16-35mm, I can only compare it to the lens I have had in the past and that includes a Nikon 16-35mm and the Canon 17-40mm L Series. Without a doubt the Zeiss is superior in every way to both of those excellent lenses, the Nikon came close to the Zeiss in terms of colour and sharpness, but when I consider build quality, sharpness, the rich colours and flawless, fast focusing the Zeiss is simply in a class above the other two. Very highly recommended.
Ok, you all need to know that I love my tablets, ever since the Compaq Concerto (486DX cpu, 4MB ram – Way ahead of its time!). I have been buying and using tablets in my daily life for ages (HP TC1100, Tabletkiosk Sahara Slate, countless iPads etc etc), always favouring the simpler “slate” (no keyboard
If like me however you do music recording/mixing, pre-press graphics, video editing or photographic work, the iMac Retina is an incredible machine that offers very fast performance, and a screen you will simply not want to live without. Highly Recommended. .
These settings to me result in a big, analogue console type of sound which is saying something given that I mix on a DAW (like most people these days) and sum out to a TL Audio Ebony A4 Summing Mixer, prior to hitting the THC.

What’s the big deal? What is wrong with blades? Well, if you have a double bunk in your kids room for example, a normal ceiling fan with blades could do some serious damage when on the top bunk, and air flow is forced down only. The exhale changes all that!
In summary, for it’s prime functions as a wireless modem router, it delivers excellent performance all round and is easy to setup and manage with a comprehensive web based management system. The extensive features list in combination with the excellent performance all adds up to a unique proposition, and one that offers good value as well.
…he is the only online session drummer to provide a top and bottom snare stem. This turned out to be a real plus as it enabled me to achieve a great snare tone by blending the top which gave a tight ‘smack’ of snare, and the bottom with it’s deeper tone, some real thump.
…the Sony Xperia Z2 is a stunning bit of kit offering some very special abilities over most smartphones, and at AU$759 I think it offers good value. I am happy with my decision to buck the trend and move away from Apple…can’t believe I just said that!

When Steven Slate announced the Raven Multi-touch Production System I was salivating at the possibilities of having such a system in my studio, but the cost was out of my reach, and to be honest I did not have the room for such a large ‘console’ in my studio. Today I stumbled upon the new
All in all, Sony have improved once again, what was a remarkable little camera and the inclusion of a pop-up EVF at this price point is even more impressive given that an EVF is usually an expensive and bulky option on other cameras.
