back from new york

Well, I'm back again, and immediately into the regular rythm of boring work.
Here's a quick recap of the last few days in NYC.

Photoplus was fun and hectic. Not a big show to european standards, but still very busy. Great showing off a product you love and see the positive feedback the users have. Bibble 5 has the potential to change the imaging industry, really. Just wait and see for yourself once it's released.
Or have a quick peak at the interview:
NYC is very nice. Went to quite a few bars, some of them were meh (see my previous post), others were nice. Food is great, if you know where to go (obviously I didn't, but others did...).

Visited the 5th Ave Apple Store (hey as an Apple fanboy I should go there, right?).. which to me is completely overrated. Yeah, the outside is nice, but once you're inside there's nothing special about it. So I was gone quickly.

I planned on going around town on sunday, the day I left, but once I got walking my feet were killing me, so after about an hour I decided to get to B&H and pick up the stuff I ordered at photoplus (a very cute girl called Jessica.. *swoon*), and take off to the airport. So didn't see that much, but enough to get an impression of the general atmosphere there. Definately have to get back someday not too far into the future.

I got a very nice present in the form of a nikon D700 plus 24-120mm VR kit, which is simply an amazing camera. Very *very* happy with it. Need to arrange some shoots soon! At Photoplus I ordered the new Lens Baby composer for it. Nice gadget. I have the original LB, thought it was time to upgrade now they finally have fixed the aiming of it. looking into the 50mm 1.4 nikkor as well, but that won't be available until december, probably january.

boring booth shot

Nikon booth ballerina. Standard boring shot everybody has, I guess. Shot at ISO 1600... amazing, this new D700.
