via www.acquiremag.com While mirrorless cameras may be the future, Nikon won't be putting a stop to its traditional DSLR line anytime soon. They've just announced their new D7200 and they're hoping to attract buyers with a lightweight body and a robust feature set that made the previous model so popular with shooters. The camera features a 24 megapixel DX-format sensor no optical low-pass filter for the sharpest images possible. Couple that with their new EXSPEED 4 processing engine and their 51-point Auto-Focus and you'll have more than enough capability to help you nail that shot every time. You also have...

via www.acquiremag.com Nikon didn't cut any corners when it came to equipping its new Coolpix P900 with a capable zoom lens. They've gone and put in an 83x optical zoom lens that's equivalent to 24-2000mm in focal length. That should be more than enough to shoot any subject no matter how far they are from your camera. A great zoom lens is useless without a good sensor, Nikon has coupled it with a 16 MP sensor and a speedy Auto-Focus system that can shoot 7 fps and get sharp images from fast moving subjects. Other features include a built-in EVF,... Continue reading

via www.acquiremag.com Mercedes will be bringing a new silver arrow to the race track later this year with a GT3 variant of its newly released AMG GT sports coupe. Mercedes will have to face a ton of competition in GT3, but with what AMG has done with the GT, they should have no problems keeping up and outpacing the best of them. The menacing front end is low and wide with a grille that looks as if its ready to devour anything that gets in its way.

via www.inventorymagazine.com The last few seasons have seen a real upswing in the popularity of the coach jacket style, but none have stood out as distinctly as this Rebuild by Needles version. Constructed from repurposed army surplus garments, and adorned with chest pockets, button plackets and name badges, it would be pretty tough to confuse this with any of the more overtly bland options available, by obvious comparison of course. Rebuild by Needles Coach Jacket Continue reading

via hypebeast.com The “Beethoven” edition of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low. An homage of sorts to the power of the German composer and pianist’s Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125–simply known to many as the “Ninth Symphony” or “The Choral”–the release aligns Kobe Bryant‘s ninth Nike signature with Beethoven’s final completed symphony, coupling Wolf Grey with both black and white while incorporating technologies like a Flyknit upper, Dynamic Flywire support, a carbon fiber heel counter, and Lunarlon cushioning.

via www.inventorymagazine.com One of the more interesting collections for me every season is Takashi Tateno’s Workers line. I greatly enjoy seeing what vintage reference he is utilizing for each collection, as most of his pieces are based on workwear, military, outdoor or traditional styles from the 1930s-70s. It is also interesting to see how he might reconfigure designs from previous collections, as is the case with his latest Mountain Shirt Parka. He is certainly taking a fresh approach to creating vintage reproductions and his website is also a fount of information, featuring many of the original items he takes inspiration... Continue reading

via hypebeast.com McLaren‘s 650S is the latest addition to the British supercar manufacturer’s stable. An enhanced version of the MP4-12C, the 650S–highlighted here in Spider form–shares its predecessor’s carbon fiber composite chassis and features advanced aerodynamics and uber-lightweight construction for its gorgeous exterior. Under the hood sits a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8–capable of 641 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque–that sees its power transferred to the wheels by way of a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. All of this means the updated MP4-12C can hit a top speed of 207 mph while accelerating from 0 to 62 mph in just three seconds. Continue reading

via hypebeast.com Designers often generously imbue their creations with personalities: distinct traits or details that make the piece unique. Adding a unique identity crisis to two commonplace items – the chair and the shoe – Basque designer Martín Azúa unveils his latest avant-garde creation: dubbed the Shoemaker Chair. With the “personality of a chair,” and “[requiring] the care of a shoe,” Azúa’s work features thick, laced leather folds adorning the panels of a wooden chair. The combination of these features, of course, gets increasingly worn over time – not wholly unlike that of its owner. Continue reading
