New outdoor magazine for Vancouver Island

A new magazine just hit the shelf: the Wild Coast Magazine, described as Vancouver Island’s only outdoor, adventure and recreation magazine catering to the island’s eco-tourism industry. Its first issue was Free, and the contents are published on their website. It has some great articles about trips to take there. There is just too much to see and do in this province!

Increasing camera resolution

The resolution of digital cameras is improving quickly, but this also means that one always owns an outdated camera. PhotoAcute is a relatively new piece of software that helps improve the resolution of any camera, even camera phones. After taking several photos of the same subject, preferably on a tripod with a high-speed drive, the software combines data from all images to greatly improve detail, sharpness, depth of field, and exposure. It also decreases noise and chromatic aberration. You can even use the software to remove unwanted moving people from the image. Very cool.
