Olympus VR-320

People love shooting photos with powerful zoom lenses, but do not want to sacrifice portability for the extra zoom power. The Olympus VR-320 proves that you can have it all with the smart, impressive 12.5x extra-wide-angle optical zoom lens (24mm-300mm equivalent in 35mm photography) and an ultra-compact all-metal body that easily fits in your pocket. Aside from its extremely powerful optics and 14-megapixel sensor for super-detailed images, the VR-320 has Magic Art Filters to add a new level of creative expression to images and videos, Dual Image Stabilization to take the blur out of photography and a 3.0-inch LCD to compose and show off your work at the end of the day.

Free Canvas Print During the Month of March

Free Canvas Print During the Month of March

CanvasPeople is offering a free 8×10 canvas print for the month of March as a way to introduce more people to their service. Users can either choose the free 8×10 print or receive 50$ off a larger print. If you have ever wanted to try printing one of your favorite photos on canvas, this is a very good opportunity. The only cost is shipping and handling (which was $14.95 for my order shipped to California). Their ordering process is very simple and convenient. A quality canvas print will deliver a matte-paper like contrast and color, but since there’s no glass over the print to reduce contrast and saturation, the colors remain much more vibrant when viewed from a distance.

Wingsuit Flying

Wingsuit Flying

This post is somewhat off the topic of photography, but I always wanted a page on this site where I could post items and information as the sport of wingsuit flying progresses. Plus, a lot of people have emailed me inquiring as to how one learns to fly a wingsuit – so I thought I would try to assemble some information. Wingsuit flying is new sport where participants fly their bodies up in the sky with the assistance of a special jumpsuit called a wingsuit which provides winged surfaces between the arms and legs for lift. Due to the speed at which wingsuits fly, a parachute is necessary for a safe landing.
