Sony RX1 Review
When the RX1 was first announced, it was greeted with a mixture of awe and skepticism. It sounded great, but almost too good to be true. Then sample files started showing up and looked very promising. When it came out, I was lucky enough to get one the first day it was available in the States. After using it for a couple of months, here’s my review.
Site Design Update
If you’re seeing this, you’re looking at the site refresh that I’ve just launched to accomodate the styling I wanted to use in my Sony RX1 review. I’m still massaging the various HTML5 and CSS bits, but it’s coming along nicely. I’ll blog more later when I get time about how it’s different and some of the interesting things I’m doing with it. The short version is that it leverages the hell out of Twitter Bootstrap and Middleman, is totally responsive, and is being served up by Amazon S3 and soon CloudFront for global speed.
Static site generation—even for Retina imagesets—for the win.
One thing that’s currently AWOL is the Links section. It’ll be back soon. I’m simply rethinking how I want to handle those going forward.
