John Malkovich mixes with world class photographer to create something... Creep?

Hey I am all about art. But let's be honest here. Sometimes it can come off a bit creepy. Even things I like, I can also consider... off. In my humble opinion, this falls into that category. I mean, after all, any photo that will feature iconic film legend John Malkovich, will certainly have the potential of coming off... creepy. He just has this certain persona and look that makes you go, "Cool." While making sure to stand at arms length. (Loved him in the Red movies.)

Well he teamed up with photographer Sandro Miller to recreate some iconic photographs. I will let you be the judge on what you think. For me, they fall into the cool/creepy department. And for the record, after seeing the last photo in the sequence, I am convinced he needs to play Ernest Hemingway in a movie at some point.

Alfred Hitchcock (1973)

Che Guevara (1960)

John Lennon and Yoko Ono

Albert Einstein (1951)

Mick Jagger (1964)

American Gothic (1942)

Salvador Dali (1954)

Ernest Hemingway (1957)

Canon plays Catch up with Sony on the G7 X

There is no doubt about it, anyone that has looked at/held/owned a Sony RX100, has fell in love. A full frame sensor camera in a small portable body. In fact it is already on it's second iteration of the model. But while the new Canon 7D replacement stole all of the headlines, Canon released another camera into the mix that I believe may have caught up to, and even leap frogged the Sony RX100.

Introducing the Canon G7 X. It is also a compact body camera with a 1 inch sensor. In many ways, it seems to be better than the Sony. It offers a longer lens with it's 24-100mm equivalent F/1.8-2.8 lens.

It comes equipped with a flippable 3 inch touch sensitive screen. Something else Sony does not offer.

It has a 31 point AF system and shoots at 6.5 fps.

It sports 1080p 60FPS video recording, built in WiFi, and a pop up flash. It is also reportedly priced a bit better. But we shall see...
