In addition to the new Canon EOS 60D camera and some new Canon lenses, I now have the Glidetrack ShooterSD which you can use both as a camera slider and as a shoulder support. Last week I bought a Velbon DV7000 tripod with the PH-368 fluid head. If you buy a different set of tripod/head, make sure that they can be detached so that you can position the Glidetrack in between the tripod and the head. I also have the LCDVF 3:2 ViewFinder which allows you to have a closer look at the image (a great help when using manual focus) and it also makes shooting handheld easier by stabilizing the camera.
This video is a combination of a couple of test shots using the gear mentioned above. Everything seems to be working just fine. Except that I need more time to learn to use the equipment better...

Some random shots with a lot of ebook reader devices in them. Many of the current ebook readers are based in e-ink/e-paper (from Amazon, Sony and a lot of smaller manufacturers) but also many devices with colour display being launched (like the iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab etc.). Somehow I can not avoid thinking that some of the ebook reader devices seem already old-fashioned…
For us, good food is one of the reasons why we love Paris so much. Below a few highlight of our visit -- the two first ones taken in Christian Constant's enjoyable bistro Les Cocottes (both ISO 1600).
Another favorite hobby of ours in Paris is just walking around, sitting in cafes, spending time doing nothing.
If we do something besides sitting in cafes and eating out, we normally go to art galleries and museums. This time it was time to visit La Maison Européenne de la Photographie (this time Kimiko Yoshida, Koos Breukel and the fashion guru Karl Lagerfeld) and the Polka Galerie (exhibitions of Peter Lindbergh and Stanley Greene).
In Paris, you always see some wierd stuff happening. There was evidently something interesting happening behind the bushes...
This is mainly a collection of clips about the 4K video/multipurpose camera.
Handheld point-and-shoot style captures, unedited, combined in ZoomBrowser, some of the material overexposed etc. but again showing what kind of video material you get with the Canon EOS 60D.
