Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1

As if the sleek Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 camera wasn’t desirable enough, with its micro four thirds sensor and rangefinder capability, using adaptations of a DMC-GH1 hack, a group of coders have devised a number of new tweaks including 1080p video recording.

Besides full HD recording, increased video recording bit rates and added 4.2.2 color sampling there could also be full manual control and 24p/25p shooting options down the road.

More information and sample videos over on Engadget.

Old Time Sling Shot

OK… so I am old enough to know better but this classic old time sling shot really brings out the naughty little blighter in me.

Old Time Sling Shot

Hand made from branches of the Buckthorn bush, a European hedge plant commonly found in suburban neighborhoods in Minnesota, and now considered an invasive species, Buckthorn’s hard “Y” branches are perfect for sling shots and harvesting Buckthorn wood helps with efforts to control the species.

Natural latex tubing and a leather projectile pouch are attached to the sling shot using sinew. A light coat of hand rubbed mineral oil brings out the natural beauty of the wood.

Available from Hickoree’s Hard Goods.

As an aside, I have the paperback version of the the special edition of the Kerouac classic, The Dharma Bums from Penguin Classics, as shown in the pic above (featuring special cover art from Norwegian cartoonist Jason) and didn’t realise it was available in hardback. Would love to get hold of a copy if anyone could give me the heads up.
