The results I’ve been able to achieve with Lightroom 4 in just a few weeks of casual testing have, for lack of a better expression, blown me away. Granted, I’m not looking to land the next American Photo or Life magazine cover.
This holiday season expect the Amazon Kindle Fire, the iPad 2, and even some of the more popular, well-priced Android tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 to go gang-busters at the (virtual) cash register.
Even with the Canon EOS Rebel T3i and EOS 60D now on the market, the T2i continues to impress–and I whole-heartedly recommend it to those looking to get into DSLR. I took it down to the Baja for a few weeks and shot over 1,000 photos.
One thing I know with the Canon T2i (and T3i, 60D…) is that on-board camera audio is a non-starter for all but the most casual of applications. Just don’t do it – fine for reference audio for syncing later, but for anything else external audio is a must.

Get ready for a hyperkinetic mix of live video, hip hop, jazz, rock, gospel, blues, Latin rhythms, and spoken word as the explosive theatre ensemble UNIVERSES rocks and unlocks the radical and complicated legacy of the Black Panthers and Young Lords. These seminal activists fought injustice, provided free food and medical care for their communities—and struggled against a government determined to suppress them.
Based on dozens of interviews, Party People imagines the Black Panthers and Young Lords reuniting today at an art opening curated by a couple of young counterculturists, where old wounds open and generations collide. What is the price of being a revolutionary, and what happens to those who come after?
Party People was developed in The Ground Floor, Berkeley Rep’s Center for the Creation and Development of New Work.
