Lacie MosKeyto

Read More

This one is showing up everywhere, so I might as well post it as well. It’s the smallest flash drive ever… The MosKeyto weighs in at 10 grams and is only 22mm long. Stick in your USB drive and leave as an extra drive or cary it around in your change pocket – you won’t even notice it in either case.

Available in 4GB ($18), 8GB ($28) and 16GB ($TBA) capacities.

Leica Revolver

Read More

Not at all related to EDC I guess, but damn man… This thing is rad. It’s a Leica Revolver. The Revolver is essentially a quick change lens set up for a M-mount Leica that allows you to quickly revolve between three different lenses. They are pretty much impossible to find, but if you do luck into one expect to pay around $5k. CRAZY.

Read More

So ya got yourself a super slick camera, but you are still using that cheesy wrist strap or ultra-uncomfortable necker that it came with? I was like you until last week… Then, I stumbled upon this dude named Gordy that makes these super boss camera straps. My cameras are sporting leather now.

You can learn more here.

The Panasonic LX3 – Leica D-Lux 4

Read More

leader

Almost 2 years ago, Leica introduced the D-Lux 4 compact digital camera. Their partner in the project, Panasonic, released the LX3 shortly after. The cameras are literal twins of each other – from a hardware standpoint, they are absolutely identical. There are minor firmware differences between the two, but most photographers claim little significant differences in the resulting photographs. However, the Leica version of the camera retailed for about $300 more than the Panasonic. That 300 bones got you a cleaner case and that great red Leica logo. I don’t know if I can argue against it…

FlipSync iPhone Cable

Read More

This is brilliant. How often do you need a cable for your iPhone while on the run? Seems like I’m always looking for one. FlipSync came up with this solution… It looks like a key fob, but flips apart to reveal an Apple dock connection on one side and a USB on the other. Of course, they also make one with all kinds of different standard and mini-USB connections – handy for connecting cameras, drives, etc…

I love this idea.

$20 is pretty spendy, but worth it the first time one of these save ya.

Get yours here.
