image Maarten always watches  (the same DVD of) the TeleTubbies in the morning. He points to his chair where a sticker of the TeleTubbies is placed, then says “TeTe” and walks to the remote control and points his finger to it while looking at us all excited. Even though I’m getting mentally disturbed by just hearing these irritating “uh oh”‘s yet again.

When we then start the DVD he goes all wild and dances around the floor in the morning.

The Nikon D80 is the most popular Nikon camera

image

Flickr Camera Search shows me that the 10 megapixel Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI is on its way to become the most popular camera of the moment. While my 8 megapixel Nikon Coolpix 8800 is slowly on a return (read how happy I was when I bought it, 12 okt 2004).

imageWithin flickr 322,357 photo’s were shot with the Nikon Coolpix 8800 and it’s now ranked as #37 of the #51 nikon camera’s

I’m a Nikon guy and not a Canon guy so I started looking at the specs of the Nikon D80 because I don’t like to own a camera that’s  at spot #37 :) (even though firmware update 1.7 improved some things).

The specs of the D80 look amazing although I’m a bit doubtful to go to DSLR. It costs approx. €1000 what is about the same I paid for the Nikon 8800.  On ebay the 8800 sells for $777. between €400 and €500 euro. That would mean if I would sell the 8800 and from the money buy the D80 it would cost me about €600 all together.

Obviously… then I have to start buying new lenses and memory cards…

Retrievr finds images in flickr

With
retrievr you can find fotos in flickr by just drawing outlines… reminds of my university research. It dynamically finds images while you draw so you can refine your drawing while the page with fotos updates.

I cant really judge if it works well, when i drew a big heart shape form, it came up with this ?

But, ofcourse i had to make the heart red because then i got this:
