This is a nice introduction to Canon lenses, along with purchasing tips for the beginner.
The Luminous Landscape has posted a review of the Epson R-D1 digial rangefinder camera, which accepts Leica L and M mount lenses. I’ve always been a fan of images taken with Leica rangefinders, and, after seeing some of the sample images in this review, all I can think is “I want, I want, I want!!”. Now if only I had $3000 for the camera and another $3000 for lenses, I’d be all set.
Jeffrey Zeldman writes about quiting smoking and how it has put a damper on his writing and designing, since he has habitually linked smoking and creating for 30 years.
Hearing these stories make me dread my own smoking cessation, which I hope to accomplish sooner rather than later. When I think about it, I have a hard time even writing a simple blog entry smoke-free. Well, it’s not like I ever thought quiting would be easy.

Peter-Paul Koch has a useful tutorial on using CSS to set elements to 100% height. I remember being flummoxed with this the first time I attempted it, especially when trying to get it to work in all browsers. I wish I had had access to this tutorial then.
While I’ve been pining for a new Canon 20D, I’ve been reading up on cameras and photography in general a good bit. During one of my countless surfing sessions, I came across a few sites talking about Soviet rangefinder cameras. Most of these are Leica clones. The general consensus is that these cameras are great values.
Perhaps I’ll feed my gadget addiction with one of these cheap, old-school cameras.
I found a page containing an ingenious method for ascertaining a camera’s sensitivity to infrared. You simply point an infrared remote at it and look at the preview LCD to see how bright of a spot the remote makes.
This tip should help out those who are wondering how sensitive their cameras are to IR and don’t want to spend the bucks on an IR filter only to find out that their camera isn’t very good for IR photography.
I ran across this cool web app that let’s you view a page’s structure. This could come in handy for debugging CSS inheritance issues on pages.
