New gear: Nikon D40

Iโ€™ve had a Nikon D90 for quite a while already (since August 2011), and was starting to think that while it is an exceptional camera for events and places where you know a big camera is no problem, it might be nice to have a slightly smaller camera for all the places where big cameras are not handy. I mean, I donโ€™t really like the thought of just throwing my D90 into my backpack and taking it with me everywhere I go. Itโ€™s too heavy for those kind of things.

The difference between zoom and prime lenses

A lot of people have a camera, be it in their phone, a compact camera, a dSLR or any other type. Most of these cameras, especially the compact cameras, have zoom lenses. All the bigger cameras (dSLR, ILC etc) are also often shipped with a kit lens which zooms. If you start shopping for new lenses later because you notice you canโ€™t zoom enough in either the wide or the tele part you might just go for another zoom because thatโ€™s what youโ€™re used to. But there is also another type of lens, the lens with a fixed focal length.

Popcap klantenservice

Ik heb al weer enige tijd geleden Plants vs Zombies gekocht via Steam. Helaas heeft Steam enkel de Windows versie en zijn er nog geen plannen om Plants vs Zombies via SteamPlay (Windows en Mac) uit te brengen. Dus kan ik op mijn nieuwe MacBook Pro geen native Plants vs Zombies spelen. Na enige tijd te hebben geklooit met Wine en Steam voor Windows heb ik besloten om een mailtje naar PopCap te sturen. Het kost even wat moeite om zonder een PopCap account de klantenservice te mailen, maar uiteindelijk is dit gelukt.
