Yes, you must have heard of it. Manhattanhenge. It’s also referred to as the Manhattan Solstice, occurs when the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the street grid in the city. The best views of the sun perfectly setting between some of the city’s most iconic buildings are offered at 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd, 57th, and those streets nearby at around 8:15 PM. It usually strikes twice a year, in late May and again in mid July. Last night had everyone out with their camera phones. But to get a REALLY pro shot, you might try the DxO One, a compact gizmo with an SD slot, touch screen and internal battery with its own lens that gives you raw 20.9 megapixel images. DxO uses the image processing technology that presently is used in over 300 million phone cameras. This new camera weighs less than an iPhone and is 2.65 inches high. You can easily carry it in your pocket. The iPhone screen acts like the viewfinder. To get technical, you also have ISO selection from 100 to 51,000. All the controls you’s expect on a DSLR are present like manual, aperture and shutter priority as well as scene selection mode options. Unfortunately, this new camera isn’t available sometime in August. But you’ll be ready for next year’s Manhattanhenge.
