    Because I have chickens, and lights

    And perhaps most importantly, you have at least one chicken-sized bow tie.

    In other (personal) news...

    Congrats, and Happy New Year! Although my experience is in the area you left (science), I have a couple of thoughts for you. Good, this is really important. I’m not sure how much leeway you’ll have to select the rest of your PhD committee, but I’d suggest looking for people without egos...

    Fuji Let's start talking about the X-Pro 3

    I'm curious, but do you (or does anyone else) happen to have hard numbers on the incremental cost screen-articulation or -flipping adds to cameras these days?

    Fuji Let's start talking about the X-Pro 3

    Man, Fuji keeps doing things to tempt me into their system! I really like the combo of the hybrid finder plus the flip-out LCD; I even like that it’s normally flipped in. It’s the lack of a tilting or articulating touch screen that has so far kept me from buying an X-E3, although I’ve nearly...

    Canon Canon G1X III: Finally, a huge step forward for the G X series ...

    Not helping, Matt. Seriously, thanks for the good info. That's a pretty great level of control, from my perspective. Almost like someone intended the camera to be a photographic tool or something....

    Canon Canon G1X III: Finally, a huge step forward for the G X series ...

    Okay, Miguel and Matt, you’re making it difficult for me to resist picking one of these things up. I have a quick couple of questions for you, though: if you power down the camera with the lens zoomed in, let’s say to 35 mm-equivalent, will it return to that focal length when you power back on...

    How to Turn $10000 into Gas

    The most common use of a superconducting magnet that people would recognize is as an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. MRI is based on the same thing that Steve (@drd1135) explained, which is nuclear magnetic resonance (hence, NMR). Just like with cameras, the full-frame models used in...
