After purchasing my first HDR400 capable monitor, Windows wasn't recognizing HDR support. Turns out there's an easy fix for Dell monitors.
Responsive images are a must have when building websites, so I decided to generate AVIF and WebP images for use in a <srcset> responsive image tag. However, every time I loaded DevTools, Chrome was defaulting to the standard JPG instead of the optimized image.
As a digital marketer, I'm constantly loading Google Analytics to view site performance metrics. I have a couple very specific requirements when looking at performance data in Analytics. I need to compare year-over-year data (2020 vs. 2019) and it needs to compare the same day of the week (Monday vs Monday).
In the last three years I've been through three camera bodies, eleven different lenses (some twice!), and a host of camera accessories. I think it's time to settle down with a set of quality lenses and be content. The Zeiss Batis series fits my requirements and I've had personal experience with them.
While I'm very satisfied with my Sony 24-105 G, I had the opportunity to play around with a set of Sigma Art lenses. Despite the size and weight, I love them. It's a series of lenses that sacrifices everything in the pursuit of image quality.
I'm currently loaded up with the awesome Sony Zeiss lenses, the 16-35mm f/4, 35mm f/2.8, 55mm f/1.8. It's a great trio. Lately I've been wondering if it's possible to roll those into one lens, mainly the Sony 24-105 G. If possible, there's a major size and weight advantage to a single zoom.
I've started shooting lots of cars for Bring a Trailer auctions. That means I'm in need of a lens upgrade! One single 35mm Sony Zeiss wasn't going to cut it. It's too wide for exteriors and not wide enough for interiors. I'm thinking one around the 50mm mark and something down around the 20mm mark.
For the last year or so I've absolutely loved my Batis lenses. However, I think it's time for a change to the Sony Zeiss. The whole point of going mirrorless was to keep size and weight down as much as possible. I'm really liking the design of the Sony Zeiss 35mm f/2.8. The Batis lenses aren't heavy per se, but they can't compare to the 35mm.
I think I've got a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out) when it comes to full frame. I haven't reached the capabilities of my Sony A6000, but I still can't shake the feeling that I'd be getting more out of a full frame A7. I'm sure that's a bad justification, but I'm going with it.
