So let me get this right: an out of touch Tory Lord and a septuagenarian once-trendy designer have come up with a logo that, erm, is to connect with and inspire the Yoot of da YooKay.
Compared to some of the previous olympic logos – nicely set out on this site - you really realise that the whole ‘cool brittania’ stuff was vapid patronising star-struck nonsense.
This is the visual equivalent of seeing a cardigan-wearing geography teacher letting rip on the floor of a school disco.
I wonder whether I’ll get to like this logo any more when the increased council tax bills start landing?
DPReview has a link to the new guidelines for the “Specification Guideline for Digital Cameras”. Currently in draft the document carries the collaborative weight of Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Panasonic, Sony and others.
Currently the only topic on digicams is the infernal megapixel level – an annoying and largely irrelevant metric when the camera has high noise, terrible compression algorithms and a shutter lag measured in geological time!
Standards – to ease comparison and make key features visible – are always a good thing and it’s cheering to see an industry body taking the initiative here.
What a line-up of interesting, small exhibitions and shows, all taking place in NYC for the 60th anniversary of the Magnum Photo agency.
Now, how can I arrange a ‘vital business trip’ to NYC this month… ??
