Nikon D700 D-SLR A 12.1 effective megapixel FX format (AKA Full Frame) DSLR capable of up to 8 fps when using the optional MB-D10 Multi Power Battery Pack.
Imaging pipeline: A 12.1 (effective ï¾– meaning image making) megapixel 23.9x36mm Nikon FX-format CMOS using 8.45 micrometer (micron) pixel pitch cells with a low signal-to-noise ratio and wide dynamic range (about 12 stops in the D3). A 12-channel readout for faster information transfer allows for a 5 to 8 full size, full resolution FPS rate (see more details below). ISO range: nominally 200-6400 + down to ISO 100 (Lo-1) and up to ISO 25,600 (Hi-2). D700 will deliver D3 image quality for slightly more than half the price.
Viewfinder: A .72x magnification eyelevel viewfinder utilizing a high refractive index pentaprism (I assume made of glass elements) with a 95% frame coverage. A framing grid can be super imposed on the finder screen per a photographerï¾’s preferences of format size.
Shutter: Shutter curtains are formed of a Kevlar and carbon fiber composite hybrid material. This shutter has already been tested on full y assembled cameras through at least 150,000 cycles. Shutter unit has a self-diagnostic unit, which constantly monitors shutter performance to maintain precision.
Body Construction: The camera body, rear body and mirror box are made from a high-strength magnesium alloy. Connection points in the body are weather sealed with precision O-rings to keep out dust and moisture.
Battery: same as the D300: Nikon EN-El3e
Start up, shutter lag times, buffer size and write speed: Start up from off is accomplished in .12 seconds. Shutter lag response time is 0.40 milliseconds. Nikon claims these makes the D700 currently the fastest in its class.
Full Resolution JPEGS: up to 5 frames per second (FPS) or up to 8 FPS with the optional MB-10D for up to 100 frames. NEFs 17 14 bit per channel lossless compressed NEFS.
With the new high speed UDMA CompactFlash cards camera to media write speed is up to 35 megabytes per second.
Auto-focus: The D700 uses Nikonï¾’s Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor module with 15 cross-type sensors and 36 horizontal sensors that can be used individually or in groups. In Single Area or Dynamic AF modes, users can select groups of 9, 21, or all 51 focus points. The system also utilizes 3D Focus tracking with automatic focus point switching using all 51 points in conjunction with the metering systems 1,005 pixel RGB sensor to accurately track moving objects using color content and light information.
Self Cleaning mode: a first for a Nikon FX format camera, The self-cleaning system uses 4 distinct vibration frequencies to shake off dust particles from the cameraï¾’s low-pass filter. System is activated at start up, shut down, or on demand. Additionally the interior of the mirror box and the whole of the shutter mechanism are made of materials that inhibit debris creation in the first place. Active D-lighting: Active D-Lighting lets photographers choose from various intensities during capture, while a new Automatic mode also applies varying levels of D-Lighting as, and when needed, to enhance photos while shooting. Active D-Lighting uses localized (very localized: as in on the individual sensor pixel) tone control technology to further optimize highlight and shadow detail while also maintaining natural contrast, giving photographers the ability to make better exposed photos, even in difficult lighting conditions. LCD monitor: A 3-inch (diagonal) 920,000-dot VGA TFT LCD display covered with tempered glass features a 170-degree viewing angle.
Live View and working tethered:Live View Hand held mode uses the TTL phase detection AF utilizing all 51 AF points and allows the photographer to reframe the image prior to making the photo.
Live View Tripod mode is for very precise focusing accuracy with the camera mounted on a tripod with still subjects. Focal plane contrast detection AF can be activated on any desired point with in a specific area. (Note: Using tripod mode Live View on the D3 I use the camera in manual focus mode and enlarge the preview on the LCD monitor if not working tethered to a computer using Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 software.)
Also new is the ability to superimpose the Virtual Horizon feature over the Live View monitor image.
The camera also outputs a video signal to an HD television using the new smaller HDMI-C standard, which clients will certainly appreciate.
Here’s a video showing you how to create the LED eagle eye rings for your car. That is really awesome, just looks like the one in bimmer. What we called that, angel eye, eagle eye or something. Huh, look pretty much the same. Video after the break.
The reflective tape upgraded to the ring is to make it brighter and stand out better. This simple little trick traps the otherwise lost light that would have escaped into the reflective bowl, causing irregular light pattern inside the headlamp which blends out the ring. It’s not about having the brightess ring; it’s about making it stand out and doing it cheap. LED is the way to go.
I’m not sure WHY you should do this (because you can? 😉 ) But apparently you can install Windows 3.11 for workgroups using the software DOSBox and have it running inside Windows Vista…Yeez.

Just For Kicks is a great documentary showing how the sneaker culture came to be. Showing its foundations in hip-hop with Run DMC up to 50 cent with RBK, the influence of Michael Jordan and Nike, the dedication to sneaker hunting and collecting, and symbols the sneaker played in the cultures of the last 20 or so years. From an advertising point of view, it always reverts back to an honest view on how businesses have been able to capitalize on, and propel, the sneaker movement. I was able to edit some clips and make my own highlight reel of the film. Check it out:
Do you collect those useless phone cards, credit cards, gift card or whatever plastic? Do throw them away, they can be use to make guitar picks. Other materials like cardboard, “Handi Snacks” stick, CD, Toshiba laptop, and plastic packaging can be use too. Just use a marker pen and draw the pick shape on the card and card it with scissor, piece of cake.

Getty Images has recently launched an interactive “brainstorming tool” called Moodstream. The site cycles through photos, videos and music using their huge cache of media as source material. Getty has created a tool for creative professionals (or everyone else) to find fresh inspiration. The control panel has sliders to adjust the mood and tone of the media; happy to sad, warm to cool.

On August 31, join a million of your closest friends for Nike’s The Human Race, a 10K that takes place in 25 cities around the world, as well as in your own backyard thanks to Nike+ technology.
If you can’t make it to one of the designated areas on the day of the run, but you’ve got a Nike+ kit, simply register for the event, synchronize your watch, and run when everyone else does.
The goal is to get 1,000,000 people to run together, and to raise money for The UN Refugee Agency, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and the WWF.
Think you’re up to the challenge?

Sorry guys, left for holiday yesterday lol. Alright, here’s a list of common passwords use for the login for emails, myspace, or whatever. Any of yours in the list? If yes, pls change it, lol. I came out with number 11: that’s your date of birth. That’s pretty common, I’m using that last time, I’ve changed it after my friends got my logins and start sending sh!ts out with my mail. So please use strong passwords, especially for those banking sites.
On June 20, 2008, 12:00pm Los Angeles time (8:00pm GMT London time), Internet Big Bang will host the world wide record of the highest number of people on the same website at the same time. It’s the first time ever that this kind of world record is set up.
The only goal is to see how many people can gather on the same website at the same time. There is nothing to win and nothing to do by the websurfers, they just have to be there. This worldwide record will be contolled by an independent legal team.

The megapixel myth was started by camera makers who use the number of megapixels a camera has to hoodwink you into thinking it has something to do with camera quality. They use it because even a tiny linear resolution increase results in a huge total pixel increase.
Forget the silly debate over pixel counts among digital cameras. There is little visible difference between cameras with seemingly different ratings. For instance, a 3 MP camera pretty much looks the same as a 6 MP camera, even when blown up to 12 x 18.
Neat stuff, nice camera. gizmodo.com
