Excellent computer repair service in Prague

Just to give a shout out to the guys at www.ComputerSolution.cz. Couple of days ago my computer simply died, and I couldn’t quite figure out the precise reason. That’s why I decided to bring it in to a service. After some Google-ing around I found them and I brought my computer in. They did run a diagnostic right on the spot and gave me a quotation (less than what I was expecting actually), and in less than 24h my computer was all ready and waiting for me. Excellent service!

- this is just my way of simply saying Thank You! Great job, guys!

On sale: NIKON D700 + AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VRII

I am a hobbyist photographer (working my way up to pro) and a Nikon D700 owner. Since Nikon recently released two new dSLR models, the D4 and the D800, I am considering upgrading to the new D800.
For this reason, my actual D700 and one of my lenses (the 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VRII) go on sale. As a bonus, I throw in a 16 GB 133x Kingston CF card.
Since you’re reading this, I would normally assume you know what the specifications of the equipment I’m putting up for sale are. If not, check out the links below:
-http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Product/Digital-SLR-Cameras/25444/D700.html, and
This same kit but without the 16 GB card goes on sale in Prague for CZK74,000. My bad was that I initially bought it from eBay US, and I ended up paying much more than that (because of the Czech taxes and customs), but I will not try to make up that money by selling it now over-priced, no.
From this total of CZK74,000 I will discount CZK1,750 from the camera and another CZK1,250 from the lens. Price I will sell for is then CZK71,000.
About camera:
I love photography, and I am a really enthusiastic enthusiast about it :-D. I am always over-protective with my photo-gear, and I always maintain it in its best of shapes.
- camera is in almost-new condition;
- doesn’t have signs of use;
- less than 10,000 actuations;
- always used a protective cover for the rear LCD, to keep it scratch-free;
- kept it and carried it around in a Lowepro camera bag, away from extreme temperatures, direct sun light, moisture or anything as such.
Lens now:
- excellent condition as well;
- also no signs of use;
- no scratches, no dust, and I always used a NC protective filter (which I will not include it in with the lens, since it is part of a three-filter-kit which I do not intend to sell)
PS: in case you want to see some of my work, check this link out. It is a slideshow of a gallery of 18 of my fav pictures. Just click the link and lay back for 50 seconds.
PS2: the Kingston card that I said I will give for free with the camera is sort of faulty. I would advise you to use it same as me: as a backup solution (due to the fact that it might fail on you), and not as your primary card.

My EasyTagger GPS unit arrived

Received it in the mail today. 14 days from China to Czech Rep, that was excellent! They've provided tracking number, so I knew all the time where my parcel was. Inside the box, there was a personalized letter (Big Thank You Bryan!) with instructions on how to calibrate it, how to recharge it, what leds mean, etc.

I mounted it on my D700 and went out to a park nearby. Got a signal lock (1st time cold start) in less than 30 seconds. Pretty impressive, considering I get a cold-start signal lock with my Coolpix P6000 (which has built-in GPS) in a good 3 to 5 minutes. It tagged my pictures with extreme accuracy, and I was really surprised at how good it is.

I did not switch it off as I've entered the building. I’ve thought to test it inside as well, to see if it beats the GPS in my P6000.

…and just as I’ve expected, it did not. It gave me some strange readings, and the path I’ve got from the tracing file from the MicroSD card looked really weird in Google Earth. And as far as I'm aware, there is no GPS unit to ever work indoors. It doesn’t matter – as I did not buy it for indoor use anyway.

What actually convinced me to buy this particular unit instead of the most expensive Nikon GP1 (which does not provide route tracing, by the way) was this in-depth review, here:


And also this YouTube clip:

This time I go with the wave². WAVE II

Unpacking and showing the WAVE II Samsung phone (model number GT-S8530).

The old phone is my 4-year old Sony Ericsson P990i, which served me well and it’s been through a lot of physical… challenges. The reason is being replaced is the impossibility to carry on a conversation longer than 3-4 minutes without restarting, in order to – as it said, “to improve performance”.

Got this phone for 2 days. Couldn’t be more happier about my purchase.

And Bada? Kicks a$$!



And here is the related video I’ve put on my YouTube channel:

These damn Facebook apps

At times I hate Facebook for allowing everybody to “develop” their own social junk that doesn’t even deserve the name “apps”. Lately I was going through my privacy settings on Facebook, and to my surprise I’ve noticed how big the list of apps I’ve blocked is. Click image to see full-size.

[Criss.AC] 2 under 1 moon

[Criss.AC] 2 under 1 moon, originally uploaded by Criss.AC.

Taken more than one year ago, on my annual visit to Italy to see parents. I'm not really sure what it expresses, but the two pigeons there under the moon... there must be something to it, I can't quite put my finger on it. On the other hand, I can't believe it actually took me this one long year to find it and publish it - anyway, here it is.

Cris on Flickr front page

If you use Flickr to show your photographs to the world or to browse pictures of the world, chances are you know what Explore is, or even how it works. To explain briefly, every minute of the day, there are over 3,000+ photos uploaded. The best 500 of these almost 4,500,000+ pictures/day are featured in Explore.

But to be featured on the home page of Flickr, this is something! Recently I’ve learned that my Sunset in Carrara picture was featured on the Flickr front page.

Although so far I’ve managed to get 7 of my pictures selected for Explore, I never even dreamed that one of my pictures will be displayed on the home page, making it visible to the thousands of viewers! It is not something lucrative for me, it did not bring me any revenue, but it is always such a nice reward to see my name next to my picture, on the front page of a site visited by the world’s best photographers!
