alt: FujiFilm and Nikon

Last week I have converted all my Nikon equipment for use with new FujiFilm. All my Nikon speedlights are working with use of the same Cactus V6 remote triggering on X-E2S as well. There was nothing to do, I however updated Cactus V6 to the latest firmware. Next was remote trigger I was using with Nikon. The only thing which was needed was a new trigger cable. After that all is working. This means I will offer my Nikon with lenses for sale.

New hosting

Posted by on May 9, 2012 in Short notes | 2 Comments

It seems all is working fine. I have moved over the weekend my site to other provider of VPS services. Now this system is running in Xen based VPS. In case you find some problems with links or images not showing as it should please drop me a comment here

This move was not only to change provider, but also moved this side to use multi site version of WordPress as I am planning to lunch some more web sites and this way it will be easier to handle them.

fotomoto is not what it used to be

Posted by on Nov 26, 2011 in Letters | 5 Comments

It is now rather few years I was using fotomoto for selling my images. Those few years ago when I had problem and I wrote email to fotomoto i get reaction in less than hour. Eventually any problem was solved in few days. They created special JavaScript only for me, explained a lot things i missed. I wrote about them few times. I also wrote review on print quality from fotomoto.

Well few days ago I was tryin to setup new site where I planned to use fotomoto for producing and reseling postcards based on my photographs. I have selected and bough wonderful template theme for new site and installed fotomoto plugin. As expected there were some problems, but I counted on super support from fotomoto.

Not this time! Initial reaction was swift as before, but after few emails no solution and for last four days no answer, no reaction. It is sad, when good things die. RIP fotomoto.

I knew about DropBox for a while now, but I never really feel comfortable with storing my files on somebody’s else computer. You may tell all about security and protection, but I am (was) always a bit paranoid about these things. It has probably something (more…)

Search for PDF reader tablet

Last few days I was in search for good way to read PDF books I have acquired. These are books with complex layout, graphs and text in multiple fonts. In case of such books re-flowing of pdf can not help with readability on small device as iPhone as many features of the original text and layout will be lost. (more…)
