Sheep Photography + Test Drives + Canon

Canon did it again! They teased us for a long, long time and they have finally released their latest ooh la la lens, the 200-400mm ƒ4, so you know we have a few things to say about that!

Brad Pitt anyone? His 2008 images from a magazine spread have popped up again. I’m not sure why, but they have and it’s left folks weighing in on his talent … Are these photos indicative of his mad photo skills or are they just a bunch of grainy family snaps?

Hey, wanna go for a test drive, y’all? If you are in America and you meet the requirements, you might be able to in the form of a bag from Think Tank Photo. They’ve come up with something a little unique, so have a listen and see if you fit the bill.

Oh, Flickr. You Didn’t!

I guess I should say oh Marissa, you DIDN’T? Some huge, HUGE changes were made to the Flickr photo sharing site. The response has definitely been split and it’s left photographers everywhere buzzing. We go through the changes and we share our reactions on said change.

Bits n’ Bites

OK, here come the questions … what are your thoughts about the Canon 200-400mm ƒ4 lens? Would you shell out your hard earned cash on this lens, or any lens in the same price bracket? What are your thoughts about Brad Pitt’s photography? Does his fame influence your opinions of his work? Flickr — what’cha think about their huge change? Are they going in the right direction or alienating too many photographers? Please chime in and let us know what you think!
