R.I.P. T3i

IMG_0162
I was doing a client shoot last week and I heard a strange clanking. I took off the lens and was pretty shocked to discover that the mirror and it’s holder had broken. I messed with it a bit and it seems like the motor went up and when it did the spring holder for the mirror busted.

You can get it fixed but the cost is stupid. So my Canon T3i is officially dead. It’s was four years old and it is the camera I’ve used for every game photo I’ve ever taken.

Camera’s have a shelf life. The T3i is estimated to last about 49,000 shutter accusations. I checked my stats. In four years I took 119,587 photos. That’s pretty darn good. More than double the camera’s estimated life.

One Hit Kill Preview!

OHKsmall
One Hit Kill is a humorous set collection game designed by John August & Ryan Nelson. It funded last year on Kickstarter and not too long ago I played it and photographed it! The art and graphic design is fantastic.

In the game, players build ultimate weapons to take out their opponents and its hard to look at cards like the “Most Cuddly Rabbit” and not laugh. If you are looking for something that is a light enough for new gamers or for something quick to play between larger games make sure you check out One Hit Kill.
