I want my DOLLY!

Chief grip, best boy, dolly operator, you gotta love the terminology in the movies! Dolly refers to a shot where the camera is mounted on rails and pushed along, either to get closer to or further from the subject, or to track them sideways as they move along. Of course if you're only shooting with small cameras, a set of rails is overkill, and instead neat tabletop solutions come into play. 

Here's a great gadget I bought at the B&H superstore during my last visit to New York - it's a REVO DS-4 tabletop dolly with the optional articulated arm, supporting a Canon PowerShot GX 1 II I was filming  with today; the actual photo was taken with the Sony RX100 III, and you'll see the actual dolly results from both in my reviews at Cameralabs soon. 

The base costs $34 by itself or just under $70 with the articulated arm mounting.I&... more »

The base costs $34 by itself or just under $70 with the articulated arm mounting. I've only used it a few times so far, but if you have a smooth surface to push it along, the results look really classy! If you want to give your movies a professional edge, I'd recommend checking it out. Here's the link to it at the B&H store:

This. I couldn't open a Keynote file because of Apple's faffing around. Backwards compatibility for files is a golden rule in updating software, or least to make it crystal clear how to open old files.

"This presentation can’t be opened because it’s too old.
To open it, save it with Keynote ’09 first.” – I was greeted with this message today when I was about to publish few more presentations on Slideshare about Knowledge Management. The offending presentation is from 2008. I have around 20 files created in older Keynote versions. They are not the disposable kinds of presentations – you know, the ones that you prepare, project and forget about them. I like to reuse them, show when I’m talking about various subjects contained in them.

How I am supposed to access them now? “save it with Keynote ’09 first”, but how? I don’t have Keynote '09 any more on my fresh Mavericks install.

The iCloud loads the presentations without any complaint, but it can’t open them – same message. One would at least hope, that they will have conversion tools at their side, if it is too cumbersome to distribute it to users and have additional customer support overhead.

I do have an installation CD, but I don’t have a CD drive any more. I'm not buying a piece of hardware to install obsolete software from a company that can't keep compatibility just two versions backwards. 

For comparison: I can read my university presentations from 2001, my conference presentations from 2003-2004 created in Open Office. That’s more than 10 years and more than three versions ago!

I’m usually careful when using proprietary formats and try not to use them if there is a negotiable alternative. I was using iWork because it was pleasant to use, intuitive and it never went into my way. The Keynote was the best alternative out there for me – the output was just lovely. The output from other tools is not that nice, or at least requires much more work to achieve similar results.

How can I trust Apple now and use their products if they can easily render my documents unreadable without any immediately accessible (from the internet) and legal option?

P.S.: I apologize for the rant, but this should be a warning for you who are using proprietary products as well as I do

#Apple   #iWork   #fail   #proprietary   #OpenOffice

Google's at it again with another stunning usability change that has cocked up Google Maps.

How am I supposed to view street view and map view at the same time to make sure I am browsing the correct road? All I get is a tiny representation of map view that I cannot zoom and a fullscreen streetview that is useless without the accompanying map.
