FDD: FOMO-Driven-Development

It happened with blockchain, NFTs, web3, the 'metaverse' and is now happening with AI

The benefits of these technologies are questionable at best and the ethics are sketchy and exploitative

Layoffs continue to deplete my morale today. Lots of “(deactivated)” have shown up on usernames this weekend which I assume means the UK process is finished. I didn’t/don’t know very many people at work outside my immediate team, but several of the very few I do know have been affected.
Since deadlines do not move nor feel, I need to keep on moving my work forward regardless.

@Drarok It’s a very strange feeling. I’m off today but did check slack and saw some stuff. Morale is loooooow.

i had an eye check yesterday, and now i feel like i need to watch a two hour youtube video on how that process works and what it all means.

“which letters are sharper? green or red?”

recommendations welcome

@carol eye tests are fascinating! Did they take a picture of the back of your eye and show you the optic nerve and blood vessels etc? :D

brunty,
@brunty@brunty.social avatar

@carol Also I once mentioned that I had these 'things' in my vision (I since know they're called floaters and are caused by the jelly in your eye) and the optician was like "Oh they're fine, the only time you need to worry is if you suddenly stop seeing colour or suddenly lose your vision"

YEAH NO SHIT SHERLOCK.

Trying not to get my hopes up but my new camera is estimated to be delivered on Fridayyyyyyyy

I'll be out at the weekend with it if it does arrive then!

Woooo

@brunty@brunty.social avatar

@mathw he's away this weekend, so freeeeeeedom

But yes, there will be lots of photos of him over the summer :D

@caroga Canon R6 MK II

@brunty@brunty.social avatar

@caroga I was/am, don't use it though. I'll probably be posting stuff here and on instagram if I do post things anywhere.

@brunty@brunty.social avatar

@caroga [at]brunty on Vero if I do start posting there, just threw a few 35mm film photos up there from a couple of months ago

@caroga It's a lot lighter than the 7d, but once this lens is on it's still weighty (the lens is about 900g itself)

No results yet, haven't had the chance to go out with it. I might try and get out tomorrow a little in the city with it as I have a free day!

That's the Tamron 24-70 f2.8 Canon EF lens with a Canon EF-RF adapter to make it fit this camera (there's no 3rd party RF lenses yet and Canon glass is ££££)

Modern cameras have so many options on them compared to my old DSLR! 😂

brunty,
@brunty@brunty.social avatar

@caroga the adapter is the Canon official one and it's solid. No movement, great fit, apart from the extra length needed to make EF work with RF it's like it's not even there.

I love my nifty fifty, much lighter with just that and the adapter on, hah!

Lemme go weigh it and let you know shortly :P

brunty,
@brunty@brunty.social avatar

@caroga

Camera: 674g
Camera + Adapter: 783g
Camera + Adapter + 50mm: 943g
Camera + Adapter + 24-70mm: 1749g

@brunty@brunty.social avatar

@caroga acc? As in accessories? What sort of accessories?

On my 7d I mostly shot on an EF-S 17-55mm f2.8, but occasionally did use the nifty fifty, but it's an APS-C crop sensor.

brunty,
@brunty@brunty.social avatar

@caroga 1.6 crop factor

I love a hand strap, my old one broke so I've got a new one arriving this weekend, helps take the weight from my fingers and reduces fatigue from holding a camera all day.

I have a basic tripod from Neewer that does the job, nothing fancy but if I get out more with this new camera I might look into their smaller ones as it's a bit big and bulky.

I don't load up on loads of accessories. I've considered the Peak Design Capture Clip but I'm just not sure it'd suit me.

brunty,
@brunty@brunty.social avatar

@caroga I mostly just make sure I have enough batteries and memory cards (new camera has dual SD slots which is nice) and a decent way to carry it - a Peak Design 6L sling currently.

Not much to add.

@ocramius @david_whitney is all-round awesome and that talk is 10/10

Also talking about supply chain attacks for abandoned / languishing popular packages feels extra relevant given recent events!
