Did a sub-in piece on BC Magazine this week Check it out here.
Well it took me less than a week to decide on the wireless trigger system for my Sony gears. Decided on the Elinchrom EL Skyport system and got it yesterday. Put it on a few range test and the results were more than satisfactory. Reasons for picking the Skyport is because it is way cheaper solution than the Pocket Wizard which is not legally sold here in Hong Kong due to some stupid radio frequency/broadcast regulations. For the universal radio trigger set (1 transmitter and 1 receiver), it cost less than HK$1,400 (US$180). Got myself couple extra receivers for HK$790 (US$101); great bargain. Way better than the PT-04 from Shamshuipo.
In order for the Skyport to work on the Sony system, a cable is needed and so far I only found these from FlashZebra. It’s the Sony/Minolta proprietary hotshoe to Skyport and it also work with Pocket Wizard and Cybersync. The price at US$46.50 is a bit steep but the construction is awesome. Too bad I’m not good at DIY or else I’ll make myself couple.
The results are out. The Top 29 Cities for Men to Live In.
AskMen.com, the largest online men’s magazine, today announced the inaugural edition of its “Top 29 Cities for Men to Live In.” Compiled by AskMen.com editors, Chicago topped the list as the best city in the world for the everyday man. Selection criteria for the top cities included, among other factors, the rate of employment, ratio of single women to men, frequency of cultural activities and sporting events and the cost of a pint of beer.
The Top 29 Cities according to the article are -
- San Francisco
- New York
- Hong Kong
- Buenos Aires
- Los Angeles
- Panama City
- Tel Aviv
- Cape Town
When I first look at the list, I was surprised to see so few Asian cities on it. Though I only been to a third of those cities listed, I definitely do have my own list, LOL. My picks are Osaka; District of Columbia (a city?); Shanghai (really surprise that it’s not on it and none from China); and last but not least, BANGKOK, hehe.
