Jolla’s Marc Dillon teases world’s first Sailfish device, confirms launch in a couple of weeks

Jolla's Marc Dillon teases

So the rumor is true: the world’s first Jolla Sailfish device will be launching this month. In fact, Marc Dillon, the ex-CEO and now Head of Software Development at Jolla, was kind enough to flash the back of the product at the GMIC Beijing conference earlier today — mainly to emphasize his love for the Chinese market. It was very brief — no more than two seconds — but the orange device appeared to be no smaller than five inches in screen size. Dillon only added that the official launch is “coming in a couple of weeks,” so we’ll be keeping an eye out for an invitation in our mailbox.

Two People, One Car, Four DUI’s: Australian Couple Both Charged With Drunk Driving Twice In One Day

four-duis-in-a-day.jpg

A couple in Australia managed to score four drunk driving charges in one day after repeatedly switching drivers after one of them would get pulled over and breathalized. Problem solving: they’re not very good at it. Terrifying pedestrians, yes.

Dunwich police conducted a road side breath test on a female driver in Snapper Street, Point Lookout about 1pm.

The 27-year-old recorded a reading of .126 per cent and was charged with drink driving.

A short time later police stopped the same car which was now being driven by the passenger, a 34-year-old man from Redbank Plains.

He recorded a breath test reading of .110 per cent and was also charged with drink driving.

The couple were released but shortly afterwards the man was observed by police in Point Lookout driving the vehicle again.

The man again recorded a positive breath test and was charged with drink driving as well as driving while suspended.

Incredibly the couple returned to their vehicle and the woman again got behind the wheel.

They were again stopped by police and the woman was n charged with drink driving and driving while suspended.

Wow, two drunk driving charges apiece in one day, that…probably shouldn’t even be possible. After the first one authorities should have dropped them off in the desert so they have to walk back to town and sober up. Or get lost, walk the wrong way for 12 miles, then die of dehydration or an animal attack. Just like in the movies.

Thanks to Mike L, who agrees a taxi might have been a good idea. Or jetpacks.

Mission To Send Married Couple Around Mars in 2018

married-couple-trip-around-mars.jpg

Multimillionaire Dennis Tito (who was also the first paying space tourist) has created a nonprofit group called Inspiration Mars and green-lit a program to send a single couple on a 501-day trip around the red planet and return to earth, with a launch scheduled for January 5th, 2018. The mission is described as “high-risk”, which is to be expected when you lock a married couple in a cramped capsule for a year and a half.

A celestial harmony makes such a plan feasible — a once-every-15-years alignment of Earth and Mars wherein a modest craft can shoot there and back with minimal fuel.

The risks of this mission soar beyond those NASA would allow, said Tito adviser Jonathan Clark, a former NASA space doctor now at the Baylor College of Medicine.

Beyond low Earth orbit, cosmic radiation rises dramatically, upping the risk of cancer. If illness or injury occur, there is no hospital for millions of miles, no chance to abort, and no escape.

The nearly 18-month trip will cover 818 million miles.

Time spent within 60,000 miles of Mars: 10 hours.

Wow, if I were the couple going (and my love-doll and I still hope to be), I would turn off the autopilot as soon as we neared Mars THEN CRASH-LAND THAT SUCKER and become the first human to ever step foot on another planet. That’ll get me in the history books, right? I really don’t even care, I just want David Bowie to write a song about me. Plus I’m going to find that Curiosity rover and ride it around like a golf cart.

Thanks to Evil Ares, Pacman :v and Wilmersama, who agree they should probably send a couple who just started dating so they have time to get to know each other.

Oh Look, It’s A Couple Seconds Of The Giant Squid Video

giant-squid-video.jpg

This is a couple seconds of that giant squid video that’s supposed to come out later this month. This clip was aired on some morning news program, where Miami correspondent Doug Herpaderp had this to say: “Of course, after yesterday’s news of the baby giant squid and this one, I will be rethinking my morning dip in the Miami Beach waters here after this newscast.” Oh, morning news program, you never fail to remind me why I get all my news online.

According to [giant squid team leader] Kubodera, they live “a solitary existence, swimming about all alone in the deep sea. It doesn’t live in a group, so when I saw it, well, it looked to me like it was rather lonely.”

“It looked to me like it was rather lonely.” See? That’s how they get you. One minute it’s looking all lonely and you’re feeling sorry for it, next thing you know it’s humping your sub to pieces.

Hit the jump for the video.

The Canon 6D: A Solid Newbie Full-Frame, With A Couple of Caveats For Buyers With Pro Demands [ Testimonial ]

canon-6d-feature

The Canon 6D is a full-frame camera retailing for $ 2,099, the most affordable launch rate for such a gadget in Canon history. Canon ’ s entry in this area comes a couple of months after Nikon made a comparable step into this market with the D600, however still handled to show up in shops ahead of the holidays. The question on every person ’ s mind is whether or not Canon ’ s new entry-level full-frame offers enough to make it a sensible choice to the more pricey 5D Mark III, or to the Nikon D600 as a Canon-compatible, more budget-friendly option.

.

.

    .

  • 20.2 effective megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor
  • .

  • DIGIC 5 + image processor
  • .

  • 11-point AF with one center cross-type point
  • .

  • Full HD 1080p video recording
  • .

  • ISO range of 50-102400 (extended)
  • .

  • Center point autofocus certified down to -3 EV for precision in very low-light circumstances
  • .

  • MSRP: $ 2,099
  • .

.

.

The Canon 6D is a whole lot like a maturation of the crop sensor 60D lover camera that acted as the following step up from the company ’ s entry-level Rebel line in regards to equipment design; button placement is more like that device than the format on Canon ’ s pro bodies like the 5D Mark III. For me, arising from a T3i as my primary shooter, that ’ s really an advantage, as I ’ m not bewildered with a totally different button design. There are simply some good additions, like the devoted drive, AF and and metering mode buttons on the leading right of the camera, along with the LCD show for settings. However most various other things are where lovers will certainly anticipate them to be, and a whole lot of commands managed through devoted buttons on pro bodies are hidden under the Q menu. It ’ s a blended bag: pros could be dissatisfied with the structured controls, but novices and intermediate individuals will welcome the convenience.

.

For those originating from higher-end bodies, the building will also probably overwhelm: this is a more plastic-feeling camera than the 5D Mark III, but it ’ s a huge improvement from the Rebel line owing to a more weighty polycarbonate/magnesium outside that both enables Wi-Fi and GPS indicates to go through however also supplies durability and some degree of climate and dust resistance (while Canon says the 6D is “ totally sealed from external contaminants, ” it isn ’ t as rugged as its higher-end siblings, so be careful about taking it out in the rainfall).

.

I really regrettably had the possibility to examination Canon ’ s sturdiness claims with the 6D, as my camera fell from a table roughly 2 and half feet to a carpeted floor with a Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens attached (with hood, fortunately). The camera was none the even worse for wear for the tumble, and in fact neither was the lens. Point for Canon.

.

Size and weight of the 6D are simply about best, in my opinion. I ’ ve got relatively big hands, and while the T3i and T4i feel like toys in my mitts, the 6D fits easily, particularly with my Canon hand strap connected. When it comes to weight, some could miss the encouraging bulk of the 5D Mark III, however I such as the lighter design, particularly given that I generally either handhold my camera while in use or have it affixed to my belt with a Spider holster.

.

If there are any type of significant defects relating to the 6D ’ s hardware, it ’ s only that the absence of an articulating LCD screen looks like a missed opportunity, especially given the lover crowd (including amateur filmmakers) who are likely to be attracted by the gadget.

.

.

Autofocus

.

No reason to beat around the bush: this has actually been among the Canon 6D ’ s biggest concerns marks because it supplies a much less extensive autofocus system than either the Canon 5D Mark III or the D600. Canon has actually touted its delicate center cross-type point, which is rated for use in darker environments than the 5D Mark III ’ s, as a crucial differentiator in between this and competitors, consisting of the older however still offered 5D Mark II, and for good reason.

.

The center point is without a doubt a very outstanding, responsive and quick AF point, as checked in a number of environments and lighting scenarios, with an assortment of lenses. It seldom hunts for focus, even when going from infinite to something quite close. Canon has actually done a very great job right here, and that ’ s most likely perfect for anybody who usually utilizes the focus and recompose technique of taking images anyhow. However those side points are a different tale.

.

First, they ’ re distributed in a fairly tight grouping towards the center of the frame, so even when you select external points you ’ re not getting all that far away from center. Second, they ’ re a far cry from the accurate middle point, and particularly in low light situations, you ’ ll find them hunting fairly a bit, and frequently losing, unless you ’ re pointing at an extremely high contrast topic. I ’ d wait to say the outer AF points are a recognizable enhancement from even those on the T3i, in fact. The good news is that with an external flash connected that holds an AF assist beam, focus restrictions are mitigated considerably. The bad information is, you gained ’ t get the outer reach of either the 5D Mark III or the D600.

.

Image Quality

.

I ’ m reluctant to put excessive emphasis on the 6D ’ s autofocus capabilities, because the truth is that image quality from this camera is wonderful for the cost, and the AF system weaknesses do fairly little to endanger a photographer ’ s ability to take great shots. Especially in low-light shooting situations, the 6D is a deserving contender, taking usable shots high into its available ISO selection. Particularly for photographers who work mainly in digital.

.

For lovers, the Canon 6D provides a range of automated shooting modes, and its intelligent scene capacities are quite capable of producing strong results. I have a tendency to favor shooting in handbook, often with ISO set to auto while tweaking other settings including shutter rate and aperture, and I found it honestly hard to take a bad picture with the 6D that method. Particularly for studio and portable event photography, I genuinely think that the 6D is capable of results on par with the 5D Mark III, so if those are your primary areas of interest, strongly consider this camera and the ~ $ 1200 – $ 1500 it ’ ll save you. For more on IQ, look into the gallery below, that includes JPEGs straight from the camera at numerous ISOs with a selection of lenses, as well as some 100 percent crops for detail.

.
.

Wi-Fi & GPS

.

These are two big functions for the Canon 6D, which have previously just been available to Canon DSLRs through pricey external add-ons. They could look like gimmicky attributes to some, however the Wi-Fi connection in particular is a genuinely beneficial addition, and one that performs well with Canon ’ s EOS Remote apps for iPhone and Android. The 6D can sign up with a current network, or develop its very own to connect directly with your gadget on the go.

.

Utilizing Wi-Fi to control the camera for shooting of still images also resolves the lack of an articulating display, but you ’ ll get the exact same slow-moving autofocus performance you experience in live view if you want to also see just what you ’ re shooting on your camera ’ s screen., so be warned that it ’ s finest for stationary topics in more or less measured settings. However it ’ s a really good addition, and you could opt to “ shoot blind ” so to talk for faster autofocus performance. Combined with the peaceful shutter mode Canon obtained from the 5D Mark III for the 6D, the Wi-Fi remote is a great way to quietly get unbiased chance ats occasions or in street photography.

.

GPS requires that you be out in the open with a clear view of the sky, and like many in-camera GPS, it has the tendency to be less precise when you ’ re further out from significant locations. But it ’ s a nice-to-have function, especially for people who like to log their trips.

.

Video

.

For video, the Canon 6D provides a great deal of moire, as others before me have actually kept in mind and as I was able to confirm, but the majority of users won ’ t notice or care about that. Individuals who aren ’ t trying to find production-quality shooting, and for those who want an exceptional still camera that also does a completely presentable task on the relocating image side of things, this is still a great choice. It doesn ’ t have a headphone jack for audio monitoring, however it does have onscreen digital audio levels for those who desire to see that they sound they ’ re recording is all right. It ’ s still an upgrade from the 5D Mark II, although I ’ d state total this is a camera aimed more at still shooters than videographers.

.

.

For me, photography isn ’ t my full-time task, but it is a part of my everyday duties that frequently has me snapping photos at events and in auditoriums, under less than optimal lighting conditions. I also commonly use a camera for close-up gizmo shots, again, normally with less than superior available light. For those purposes, the Canon 6D is a thrilling, welcome addition to Canon ’ s line-up, at a cost that, while still expensive, gained ’ t break the bank for a photographer trying to find the increased composition abilities of a full-frame sensor.

.

The areas where the Canon 6D falls short (external AF points, relatively slow FPS for constant shooting) aren ’ t crucial to me or my shooting design, and the benefits (excellent low-light performance, built-in Wi-Fi photo evaluation and transfer) are exceptionally valuable. For those explanations, I could securely state that Canon ’ s 6D is a camera I ’ d advise to anybody aiming to make the leap to full-frame, offered your demands and use cases match those I ’ ve explained above where the 6D really beams.
