Found that neat project called “AirTracks” on kickstarter. It’s a little slider that uses inflatable rails so you can use it on nearly every terrain. Cool idea. The man behind this idea is Tom Baker, a commercial photographer and videographer.

Canon announced a firmware update for its EOS 5D MKIII. This update makes it possible to get an uncompressed signal (YCbCr 4:2:2, 8 bit) out of the HDMI output. Nice one, Canon. That makes it possible to connect an external recorder to the camera, what means better images for post production. But there’s one major catch: the update is not rolling out until April 2013. Boo on you, Canon. You announce such a great feature, many people are eager for and you let them wait so darn long.

So I mentioned to him that there will be a thunderstorm soon and how cool it would be to photograph the lightnings.

Berlin Thunderstorm

There was a huge thunderstorm over Berlin this morning, between 12:00 and 5:00 am. So I grabbed my 7D, my tripod and my Macbook and took some photographs of the Lightnings that showed up in front of my living room window. The results are the following 8 Pictures:
