Oh my God. You guys are like a bunch of frightened villagers huddling around the Space Alien with your pitchforks!
Here is a great new bit of technology. If it can improve your process do it. If not... Fuhgidaboudit.
Move on and go make pictures.
Man there are some touchy people here.
CB, if this gizmo works for you good, great, amazing, tremendous, but you dig geek stuff and personally I find a lot of it just gets in the way.
Now without a doubt I commend these small companies like Phase and Leaf trying to bring us more usability and it's a hell of a feat considering Canon's wi-fi is still a failure in progress.
I also appreciate Doug and Yair taking the shit they do and still pushing forward with answers. Me, I'd bolt from here so fast the screen door would still be flappin' in the wind as I saddled up.
In fact Yair and Doug both e-mailed me with offers to help. They're a hell of a lot nicer and smarter people than me.
Still, back to you comments, CB, you do something way different than a lot of other photographers do and until you pay that $1,000 an hour per chair or desk to sit there while you try to connect some gizmo I think it would be nice to recognize that all of us have different clients, pressures, and complexities in our specialties. To you a sick grip truck is a cute Mercedes SUV, to me it's a 20' box end, has a roll up back door and a harry armed guy named Big Jud to roll that stuff out.
As far as taking pictures, OK thanks, I think we all get that and maybe that's the point, because when we spend our studios' resources working out devices we could spend more time on the make a photo process.
Few of us are luddites, crap I have 10 Macs in our studios and a combined 24 raid 5 drives, so technology doesn't make me want to grab the pitchfork.
Silly ass comments do. (And this isn't only directed at you. I make a lot of silly ass comments myself).
I also have two I-pads on order though I doubt if I'll use them on set for any form of tethering, but I've been wrong before so we'll see.
