Editor's Notes

January 28, 2019:

More and more cameras these days feature some form of facial tracking, so much so that Sony has removed it from some of their most recent models, replacing it with eye tracking AF. Since the eyes are part of the face, and the effect is the same, those cameras still made the list. Other offerings from the big names like Nikon and Canon are among the best out there thanks in large part to so many years of autofocus R&D.

After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
