Ιωνία και όχι μόνο. Από την Ιεράπολι-Έφεσο- Σμύρνη- Πέργαμο-Τροία-Τσανάκαλε. Για όλους τους φίλους που έχουν μνήμες

Στην αρχαιότητα, η Ιωνία ήταν η περιοχή της Μικράς Ασίας η οποία περιλάμβανε τις Ιωνικές αποικίες. Η περιοχή αυτή περιοριζόταν στο κεντρικό τμήμα της ανατολικής ακτής του Αιγαίου απέναντι από τα νησιά Χίο και Σάμο. Σταδιακά η Ιωνία ταυτίστηκε με ολόκληρη την περιοχή των ανατολικών παραλίων του Αιγαίου λόγω της μεγαλύτερης εμβέλειας των Ιωνικών πόλεων έναντι των άλλων ελληνικών πόλεων της περιοχής αυτής.

Sony posts significant imaging division income gains in 2015 financial year-end report

There's plenty of bad news going around the camera industry lately. Companies once flush with cash from compact camera sales are now struggling to keep sales even. But despite the downward trend on a lot of camera manufacturers' books, Sony is coming through with some positive numbers. In its latest year-end financial report, the company boasts a 30.4 billion yen increase in operating income for its imaging products division, despite a 1.7% year-on-year decrease in sales.

It's a familiar story – Sony attributes the gain in income to a more favorable mix of high-value products, no doubt including its full-frame mirrorless line and premium RX-series compacts. Cost-reduction measures are also cited as contributing to the income gains. And though the upward trend is no doubt good for Sony, those numbers aren't quite as impressive as they seem at first glance. The imaging division's 2014 figures were hit by significant restructuring charges, bringing down the bottom line by 7.3 billion yen by the end of the year.

Even taking into account last year's mark-down, Sony has put up some very strong numbers for its imaging products in 2015's financial year.

Fujifilm facilities resume some production following Kumamoto earthquakes

Fujifilm is slowly but surely bringing a key subsidiary's production facilities back online after earthquakes forced a shut down, and expects to be back at full production by the end of May. In a statement issued today, Fujifilm confirmed that trial operations began on April 23 at the facilities and were ultimately successful. Barring any further problems, the company anticipates being back at pre-earthquake production levels by the end of this month.

Fujifilm Kyusyu Co., Ltd operates the facilities that were impacted by the earthquakes that struck Japan's Kumamoto prefecture on April 16. These facilities are responsible for manufacturing a key component of LCD panels. A few days after the event, the company announced that operations in the area would be stopped while assessments were performed. None of the facilities were found to be seriously damaged, but at the time the company said it hadn’t yet decided when operations would restart, and that it would hold a trial run on April 23 and 24.

Inspections of warehouse stock are still underway; as of April 19, Fujifilm says it has been shipping out products that pass inspections. 'Fujifilm Kyusyu is doing its utmost to resume all operations,' says the company; the rate at which it does so is determined in part by the number and intensity of aftershocks.

Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap

Peak Design Slide Camera Sling
$59/£45 | www.peakdesign.com | Buy Now

I admit, I'm generally not much of a camera strap user. Oh sure, I have a few straps, but they tend to be utilitarian affairs more there for emergencies or #dadlife convenience ('What do you mean your feet hurt and I have to carry you the rest of the way through the zoo?'). Even when I was in the thick of my years as a working pro, I tended to work out of a bag far more often than I worked off my shoulder.

That said, shoulder straps have a lot going for them. They protect your camera from accidental drops, allow you to use both hands without putting your camera away, provide a way to keep multiple bodies at hand and the ease of access they offer cuts down on shots missed because you were digging your camera out of a bag or pack. So when I was asked to take a look at the Slide sling strap from Peak Design, I figured it was time to give straps another try.

Specifications

  • Maximum Length: 145cm/57in
  • Minimum Length: 99cm/39in/li>
  • Weight: 171g/6oz
  • Width: 45mm/1.8in
  • Strength Rating: 200lb (This is the rating for the Dyneema-corded Anchor Link anchors. The 45mm seat belt webbing could probably lift up your car.)

It is worth noting that Peak Design also offers a narrower version of the Slide, the SlideLITE, for mirrorless systems and other smaller cameras. Specs are virtually the same save for the width being 32mm/1.25in and the weight being cut to 141g/5oz. The reduction in weight is likely due to the narrower width and the fact that the SlideLITE is unpadded.

In Use

Attaching the Slide took less time than any strap I have ever installed. The Anchor Link connector design is clever and quick. So much so, even when I wasn't using the strap, I left the Anchor Link anchors installed on my camera. Sure, they look a little silly and flap around like little ears, but they don't get in the way and allow me to install the strap again in seconds. With four anchors included, it would be easy to move the Slide between bodies. The anchors loop around your camera body's strap eyelets and then click the anchor into the connector at the end of the Slide strap. To remove, you press down on the anchor and slide it back out again. You could easily do it in the dark and yet there is virtually no chance of it happening accidentally. 

There are two different options to connect the Slide to your camera. The first is the traditional connection to your body's strap eyelets, suitable for the classic 'neck strap' style with the camera hanging down in front of you. The second makes use of the included Arca-Swiss compatible tripod plate.

The plate has small cutouts in each corner that allow attachment of an anchor. When connected to a strap eyelet and the plate, the camera hangs more naturally at your side when worn across your shoulder/chest as a sling. There are other products on the market that allow you to attach a strap to your camera's tripod mount, but virtually all of them must be removed if you wish to use a tripod. Integrating an Arca-Swiss compatible plate into its design means that users of the Slide can easily tripod mount their camera without making any changes to the strap setup. 

The Slide is surprisingly comfortable. The wide soft seatbelt material combined with the internal padding makes carrying even heavy DLSRs manageable. It has been a long while since I've had a 'padded' camera strap. I have either found them exceedingly bulky or made out neoprene that allowed the camera to 'bounce' on my shoulder more than I liked. The Slide's padding is only 1/4 of an inch thick or so, but it has enough firmness to it that it can support and distribute the weight of the camera. One side of the padded section is smooth and the other has rubberized 'gripper' lines added, allowing you to choose between the two options.

The one drawback to the Slide's padding is that it is somewhat stiff and doesn't fold up particularly well. This isn't noticeable on your shoulder, but can be a little awkward when putting your camera into a bag. I suspect that the padding will soften up with age and be more flexible, but I wonder if that will take away any of the cushioning abilities. Only time will tell I suppose.

Length adjustment is quick and easy, even one-handed. You just pull up on the quick adjust handle to release the strap and slide up or down to the desired length. It's really handy to be able to lengthen the strap for when you are actively shooting and to tighten it back up again when you've got some hiking to do. This does, however, bring me to the most glaring problem with the Slide.

While the metal adjustment handles are nice looking and give a sense of quality to the strap, they are also a significant hazard to equipment for those of us who put our cameras in bags. I was constantly afraid that the handle was going to scratch a body or LCD or worse, chip a lens that had somehow been put away without a cap on. As far as I'm concerned, there is no way that the Slide should have used metal in this design. The added weight was unneeded and the danger to camera gear too great. I would love to see this exact design, but with plastic adjustment handles. 

What's the Bottom Line?

The Peak Design Slide Sling Strap is a well-made, innovative camera strap with a premium price tag. Its construction and materials show quality. The namesake 'slide' feature works exceedingly well, the minimal padding and wide strap width tames even heavy DSLR/lens combos and the Anchor Link connectors are a clever and quick way to install and remove a strap.

However, for all the good points about the Slide, the fear that the aluminum quick adjustment handles will scratch or chip expensive equipment is a significant drawback. This is particularly true for those of us who tend to work out of a bag more often than we carry a camera around our shoulder or neck. If you are in that boat and want a strap that still offers many (though not all) of the Slide's features, it might be worth checking out the Peak Leash strap. 

What we like:

  • Ease of length adjustment, even one handed
  • Innovative hidden non-bulky padding
  • Wide enough to be comfortable
  • Easily installed/removable, can use on multiple cameras
  • Versatile attachment system
  • Material is soft and flexible
  • Arca-Swiss style tripod plate attachment 

What we don't like:

  • Stiffness of padding makes it difficult to put in bag
  • Metal adjustment buckles can bang against camera/gear in bag
  • Most would consider it expensive for a camera strap

Let's take a look: Canon PowerShot G16 iFixit disassembly guide

Canon PowerShot G16 iFixit disassembly guide

Before Sony ever put a 1"-type sensor in a compact, there was the Canon PowerShot G series. If you wanted extensive controls without all the weight of a DSLR, the G-series compacts were where you looked. The PowerShot G16 was the last in that line, sporting a 12MP 1/1.7" sensor before Canon ushered in a series of 1" compacts with a similar form factor.

The G16 may be gone from retailer's shelves, but it is not forgotten. It's also the subject of a recently published iFixit disassembly guide. The good people at iFixit publish product-specific disassembly guides, written to help common folk make simple repairs to their own electronic devices. They're also an easy way to peek inside a modern digital camera without voiding your warranty. This week, we look inside the Canon PowerShot G16.

The first disassembly step (after taking the battery out, of course) is an easy one. The G16 offers an accessory attachment point around the lens, which is covered when not in use by a metal ring. Pressing the button on the front panel next to the lens frees the ring.

Next comes the removal of the screws. Many screws. Including this one hiding next to the viewfinder...

...And another tucked next to the ports.

With the first round of screws removed the back chassis can be removed from the body, revealing just a peek at the motherboard.

The front panel can also be carefully removed...

...And after removing another screw, the port cover is ready to go.

This ribbon cable on the back panel connects the buttons to the motherboard, and can be carefully removed.

The button circuit board comes free with the removal of a couple of tiny screws, revealing a cable connecting the motherboard to the LCD. Got your spudger handy?

Canon PowerShot G16 iFixit disassembly guide

In order to free the cables you'll need to lift this little tab. A spudger is just the tool for the job.

And with that, the LCD is free.

The copper shield (likely for heat dissipation) can be removed.

More screws are removed, freeing the viewfinder casing.

With the metal shield removed, the network of cables underneath is revealed. The ribbon highlighted here connects the top panel with the motherboard and will need to be removed from the motherboard with the trusty ol' spudger.

Canon PowerShot G16 iFixit disassembly guide

The top panel is ready to go once it's free of its connections to the motherboard. 

Canon PowerShot G16 iFixit disassembly guide

Lose a few more cable connections and the motherboard is ready for removal.

Canon PowerShot G16 iFixit disassembly guide

The front lens covering is next to go after the five screws connecting it to the front plate are removed.

Canon PowerShot G16 iFixit disassembly guide

At this point there't not much camera left, and the lens module can be removed from the rest of the housing with one last screw removed.

Canon PowerShot G16 iFixit disassembly guide

But why stop at removing the lens? The viewfinder can be taken right off the top of the lens assembly.

Canon PowerShot G16 iFixit disassembly guide

A few more odd screws removed and that's it – the Canon PowerShot G16 is reduced to its bare bones.
