VERY VERY VERY Excited about VR racing.

Apparently, according to a leaked source, a new version of Driveclub is going to be released for PS4 which will be VR compatible, just in time for the launch of Sonys Playstation VR system.

We’ve been very excited about the up and coming new Gran Turismo game and have talked about the hope of them including a VR mode in GT however we feel like this is unlikely. GT usually focuses on it’s core offerings and we can’t imagine them jumping on the VR bandwagon straight away.

However we are craving a VR racing game and having played Driveclub for PS4 since it’s release we’re happy enough in the hope that the next Driveclub will be VR compatible. It’s a pretty good game. We just can’t wait to experience the above view n 360degrees with a steering wheel, on the couch in (almost) real life graphics. Bring. It. On.

Harvester Scout [Crave}

This is a damn pretty truck. We’re going through a bit of a mega truck craving phase at the moment so we got really excited when we saw this. The original Scout was pretty good looking anyway but the guys at Anything Scout have really done a fab job bringing this one to the next level. Rebuilt on a Wrangler Chassis and with a 480BHP V8 its really ready to take on your next trip to the supermarket. :-/

Mirrorless Medium Format is here, and IT. IS. BEAUTIFUL.

People say real photography is dead because of smartphones having better and better cameras. Everyone has a brilliant camera in their pocket now all the time. But how brilliant are they really? Hasselblads new X1D would argue that phone cameras are shockingly awful but of course it is bringing it’s medium format digital 50megapixel CMOS sensor with 14 stops of DR and ISO up to 25600 to the table. And without a mirror! This has allowed the dudes at Hasselblad to create a camera with a new form factor not seen in the medium format world before. The new weather sealed body is SMALL and features striking industrial design with beautiful chamfers and lines, and meticulously positioned dials.

Pegged as the Medium Format camera for the ‘Everyman’ the X1D is prices from $9000 to just over 11K we don’t quite think this classifies as everyman pricing but remember that this is medium format we are talking about!

Now we are just imagining the day somewhere down the line when smartphones have medium format sensors 😀

Anyways nice one Hasselblad, we love your new camera.
