New GAP Logo

6 Oct 2010, 9:48am

GAP has decided to redesign their logo:

Well, that didn’t turn out well. This looks like it was designed by a corporate committee. “Hey, Helvetica is still hot, right? Use that. And, hey, tack on a blue box somewhere so that people can still relate to the old logo. OK, gotta go play golf!”

Really bad.

Too easy.

Fujifilm FinePix x100 Digital Camera

21 Sep 2010, 9:38am

I am speechless. No, not really because I am about to go on. Take a look at the upcoming Fujifilm FinePix x100 digital camera (expected release: early 2011). Wow. Did the designers get this right? Yes. They did. Even down to the screw hole in the trigger button that accepts an old school cable release! Amazing.

My second thought after “WOW!” was that of of disappointment in that it has a fixed 23mm (135 equivalent: 35mm) f2 prime lens meaning that you can’t zoom or change the lens. I am over that disappointment remembering that sometimes the limitations of some things is what makes them great. Everything else that they thought of will make up for that (and the lens sounds super anyway). Like a large CMOS sensor. Solid metal top controls. A hybrid viewfinder and a small built-in flash as well as a full TTL hot shoe. Fuji GETS IT.

I just bought a new Olympus Pen E-P2 and I really like it despite it is missing a couple of features that I am baffled that they left off (built-in flash and built-in viewfinder). I do love that I can use my Voigtlander lenses on it though. HOWEVER, if the fine people at Fuji would like me to be a tester for what I think could be the camera to watch in 2011, hey, it is the least I could do. SEND ME ONE! Pretty please? Seriously, anyone know anyone at Fuji? Anyone?

*tap tap* This thing on…?

Alien Vs. Predator Skate Deck

This is a skate deck really tickles me.

Wait, that didn’t sound right.

This is a skate deck I can really get behind.

No, that’s not right either.

Never mind.

(Thanks, Andy!)
