    His opinion

    In a post here on this site was a very good interview with David Chan of the Chan Company, Hong Kong. His quote "Digital is the McDonalds of photography!" Look him up on YouTube, a wealth of knowledge from years of invovment.

    Photo Bombed

    I recently posted a photo of the Freedom Trail in Boston with a guide. I had to severely crop out some little kids waving flags and enjoying the day. When I looked at the image at home it was plain to see I had 2 nitwits with middle fingers raised on the left side. What's wrong with people...

    Do you really need all this?

    Back in prehistoric times I moved up from an F to an FTN, Wow! A camera with an onboard light meter! What next? This afternoon I read the Nikon ad and tech specs for the Z9. Unless you're a pro, do you really need all of that or do you just like to have all those features--and never use most...

    Almost forgot the simple pleasure of----

    Don't know why but a a few weeks ago I took my trusty Nikon FM off the shelf. Batteries dead as disco so I purchased two 1.5 "button types" and mounted an AI-S 35mm f2.8 lens. Even checked meter against a hand held meter---all just right. Loaded up a 36 exposure roll of film and that was...

    Used Nikons other brands and glass

    Found a web site "MPB" that sells used equipment. They even give shutter counts. Anybody have anything to say about this outfit?

    Buffering light X Pro3

    My X Pro 3 light that indicates buffering (lower right on body) stays on for several seconds before the camera let's me make another exposure. My XT-2 and X100T do not have this problem. I swapped cards from both other cameras just to check--made sure battery was fully charged as well. No...

    Another thumbs up for Fuji

    Living on a golf course I often in the early morning go for a sunrise and mountain shot. A few weeks ago I had an exciting experience on the course. Generally I stay on the cart paths but that day moved out a bit onto a fairway. Just getting set up and the sprinklers came on! Soaked! My XT 2...

    Not all Mustangs are made in Detroit

    In rural Nevada, wild Mustangs run free--and they should. These images made at the base of the Spring Mountain range. Don't get too close for several reasons; one kick can send your vehicle to the body shop with considerable damage. Don't approach or try to feed them or you may get kicked...

    Mother and child, tender moment

    I tried to keep the mood the way my naked eye saw it. Did not want to make the darkened room any lighter lest it destroyed the quiet bind of mother and child. Consequently I left the room the way it was, dark, and shaded. Several changes to exposure compensation to keep it true.

    Mirrorless, I've changed my opinion

    A while ago I posted my aversion to mirrorless cameras, sticking firmly to the DSLR. Well, after hearing (and seeing) so much about mirrorless, I decided to check out what all the talk was about. Been a Nikon guy for 50 plus years, film and digital. At my local shop, during an event that had...

    Fuji Batteries, Watson batteries, Watson duo chargers

    Got my grip for my Fuji XT-2 Purchased used Adorama. Also from B&H 3 Watson batteries for XT-2. Placed the Watson batteries in the Watson charger plates on the Duo. Nope, the Watson batteries refuse to go all the way in. On battery case says "replacement for Fuji NP-W126. Watson batterie...

    Rhyolite, 8 miles from Death Valley: Gold mining ghost town

    At one time this place was booming, bank, dance hall, jail, train station, mercantile, etc. In recent years vandals have defaced or destroyed it. The "art work" I am told by locals in Beatty, NV is from 2 gents from somewhere in eastern Europe, not sure where. They ran around the 120 degree...
