Collegian Camera Gear

At heart, I’m really more of a Gizmodo than a Gawker, so this story really got me going.

Nathan Smith, Photo Editor emeritus, is handling the photography at the Rose Bowl for the Collegian. He posted a brief entry on the Exposure blog about the equipment he would be taking out to Pasedena.

I brought 3 camera bodies, a video camera, seven lenses, one doubler, two flashes, two mono-pods, and four chargers. In order to get all this equipment across the country, I put it all in my carry-on, a “Rollie” bag and my Domke bag. With all that equipment I also had to carry my Mac Book. I chose not to check anything to avoid losing a bag or damage to the equipment.

Cool. Really cool. Does anybody want to estimate how much all of the gear in this photo is worth?

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
