Nikon DF

I’ve been intently watching the rumors trickle through up to today’s official release of the Nikon DF. The build-up lasted two weeks and included six overly dramatic, mostly annoying commercial shorts.

Like Fuji has been doing for the past few years with their X-series cameras, it seems Nikon wants in on the growing retro-inspired camera market. Nikon’s offering, however, comes across as a lot more serious than anything Fuji has released so far. The ‘Made in Japan’ camera uses the same full-frame 16.2 megapixel sensor and processing engine as their flagship D4 housed within a robust, dust and water resistant body. Interestingly, the camera omits any video capabilities and focuses on providing the dedicated photographer a dazzling array of mechanical dials. Just look at them – they’re beautiful!

Of course, this package doesn’t come cheap. Pricing is set at $2,746.96 for the body-only, and $2,996.95 with a special edition 50mm f/1.8 kit lens. You can expect this price to drop sometime after Christmas, but you have to wonder how willing people will be to buy the 16mp DF over the the fully-professional, 36mp Nikon D800e ($2,996.95 body only) or the now-oil-spot-free D610 ($1,996.95).

New Son Lux: Lost it to Trying

Posted by Navis

Son Lux (aka: Ryan Lott) has just released his newest video for his upcoming album Laterns. I had the honor to work with Ryan to create new photos for this album (top photo of post with all the hands is an example. The rest are here).

The video and the three other images that are stills from the video were created by the dark minded mastermind Anthony Ciannamea.

Available for download on iTunes.

Jessy Lanza - Kathy Lee - by Lee Skinner 07

In September Jessy Lanza released her LP Pull My Hair Back on Hyperdub and now we have the pleasure of her sharing a playlist on ISO50. One of my favorite songs of the year has been 5785021 and the video for Kathy Lee couldn’t be a better example of how its ideas and not budget that makes a memorable video. So, enjoy this playlist she shared with us and you can support by buying her LP.

TRACKLIST

Fantasia ft. Kelly Rowland and Missy ElliotWithout Me
This song is like I’m listening to ‘blame it’ and ‘beez in the trap’ at the same time. It’s fucking amazing.

LegoweltTeen Romance
I love how this track makes me want to dance and gives me anxiety at the same time

Terror Danjah feat. MelekaYou Make Me Feel
This song sounds like the future but it came out two years ago. Someone showed it to me last week and my life feels more complete now.

Le1fPlush
This whole mixtape is so good and it’s hard to pick one track, but the drums and piano on ‘plush’ make it a stand-out for me.

Apparently this photo went viral a few months back, but I’ve just stumbled upon it and had to share it. There’s something about it that is truly mesmerizing. She’s certainly not hard on the eyes, but when you consider the NASA era it’s from, the photo takes on an especially inspiring and poignant tone.

Anna holds the title of “first mother in space.” She joined NASA as an astronaut candidate in 1978, and a little over a year prior to the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, Anna flew aboard Discovery on it’s second flight on November 8, 1984. The photo was taken for a Life Magazine story.

After the Challenger explosion she did not fly again, but she continues to work to this day at NASA as a station CAPCOM (Capsule Communicator) on the Orion Project.

Nitemoves + Miracle + Museum + Pional

You guys know Rory right? he posts on the blog, usually beautifully colored vintage car and motorcycle material, also drums for Tycho and Com Truise. Well his album “Themes” is out on Moodgadget in November under the name Nitemoves. We’ll stream the whole album on the blog in 2 weeks, definitely worth your time.

Museum of Love is a new hopeful for the DFA label, has a big hint of Matthew Dear in it.

Loving this trancey work from Miracle on Planet-Mu, a nice poppy length which gives it that replay ability.

Found this dub done by Pional, dub edit are a big go-to during the winter for playlists for yourself.
