The world is no stranger to injustice and human hatred.  Living in a normally progressive city can often feel like an echo chamber of similar interest and opinion, but just last week a hate crime took place in Portland, Oregon which has certainly rocked the community both here, and around the country.  While standing up to a grown man, racially and religiously abusing two teenaged girls, three men attempted to calm and repel a horrific situation that ended up with two of them being murdered, and gruesomely injuring the third.  Rick Best, a 53 year old Army veteran and father...

We've donated profits and proceeds to different causes in the past, and we've decided that instead of doing a code that would have us donate based on choice, we're just going to go ahead and choose a cause each month, or quarter to donate 10% of all sales, directly to. For the month of March, we're going to be donating 10% of all sales to the SPLC, or Southern Poverty Law Center which is a non-profit organization focusing on fighting intolerance and hate by monitoring known hate groups and human right violators, and looking to support both individuals as well...

The brand new hand built Speed2 Sling camera straps have gone live!  After a long, successful life, the original Speed straps have made way for the newly designed, adjustable version.   Based on feedback and conversation, I redesigned the Speed sling to incorporate a spring loaded cam buckle which locks the strap in place and is adjustable from 16" to 29" in length, and is designed to wear over one shoulder and across your body like a messenger bag.

Heather and Mat from Mirrorlessons.com have written a review on the Vector, Cascade, Speed and Regatta straps! Heather brings up the point of the Speed strap being a bit long, and non adjustable (currently working on a remedy through new design for that!) for her which didn't suit her needs or style, but really liked the Vector and Regatta straps. If you've not stumbled across Mirrorlessons.com before, I'd suggest doing so.  They're great folks, and longtime friends that I've collaborated with over on my photography review blog for years.   An honest, and appreciated review in real world terms.  Have a read...
