flickr 2014: AkihabaraNews Galleries in High-Res
The images we post on Facebook are great for late-breaking, man on the street, catch as catch can J-tech coolness.
But when it comes to the high-res presentation of a well assembled flickr gallery, well, flickr's hard to beat. And we're not getting kickbacks to say so, but even for the average photographer or simple snapshotter - a terabyte of free storage? Uhhhh, yes please.
Like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, flickr also has become a social media service: photos, video, comments, likes, and the ability to share things of interest among your friends/followers/the public.
Lots and Lots of Photos
Our flickr presence reaches all the way back to 2008 and includes ~4000 high-res photos of Japanese tech, culture, landscape, and more. Jump into our Photostream here, or browse for a specific topic among our 160+ Albums.
We shoot with everything from a Nikon D90 with a big beefy lens, to the Sony Cyber-Shot RX-100, to a Panasonic Lumix GH3 (GH4 when we can get our hands on one) a few iPhone 5Ss, and an Android device here and there as well (admittedly, smartphones struggle to qualify as high-res, but on occasion that's what's needed to get the job done!).
