If you’re a field photographer, here’s a reason why purchasing a well-built, weather-proof camera is vital. Seen here is a Nikon D3 camera covered in mud and reportedly dragged through mud to capture shots of ducks. [via]

Not that I’ll be treading through mud any time soon with my gear, but I’m glad that if I ever do, my cameras will be just fine (the 7D and 5D Mark II are weather-proof).

The second video from the Pass The Bucket video series is out and it follows former professional BMX rider Stephen Murray as he every day paralyzed from the neck down following a severe BMX accident on June 22, 2007.

If you missed the first video with Tony Alva, watch it here.


Can you tell from my recent posts that I’ve been looking for a decent premium iPad 2 case? Well, here’s another to add to the list.

The iPad 2 Smart Case from Temple is made from re-purposed WWII canvas and features 100% oiled saddle leather details, 1/8″ foam padding, khaki twill lining and magnetic closures. It’s not the cheapest of them around, but it sure is one of the prettiest. Grab one for your iPad 2 for $179.

I just came across this beautiful iPad 2 case from Grove. It conceals your iPad 2 in a solid bamboo case and a vegetable tanned leather Smart Cover. They are taking $20 pre-orders now and the case will be $79 when it becomes available later.

The American Museum of Natural History in NYC is preparing for the opening of a brand-new exhibit called The World’s Largest Dinosaurs on April 16th. The creation of the exhibit has been documented in photographs at The Wall Street Journal’s Photo Journal and from the looks of it this might be the dinosaur exhibit to go see!

Check out a quick preview video below from The American Museum of Natural History.

Just a quick update to the bike preview I posted at the end of March: There’s been a slight setback in launching the website but I assure you the website is launching soon. From there you’ll be able to see the full selection of items you can customize a bike with — all at a very affordable price. If you can, I’d hold out until you can see this in full. It’s going to be great!

For now, here’s another preview of a build that I’ll hopefully be able to show in full very soon.
