    Famous Sci-Fi Props and their Creators

    Can't take credit for this collection - it was a traveling exhibit passing through the local Science Museum. Just some judicious framing and angling to cut down on the glass reflections.

    Venerable Sea Stallion. Hopefully to be replaced by the K version soon - those birds are in tough shape. The Corps is almost done buying Ospreys, but now they're refurbishing them to the new Common Config baseline. The Maintenance Troopie's job is never done...

    Cell Phone Camera photos

    LOL, I was so backwards @Kevin - I used the fullscreen option then pointed my phone at it and used Google Lens. I probably should have just used the Assistant on my Pixelbook since that's what I was surfing the site on at the time.

    Show "Reflections"

    Having grown up on an original typewriter (and carbon paper as a tell tale - no White Out cheats in that class), I can appreciate with some nostalgia the physical feedback of the full-depress keys, the smell of the lubrication oil and the satisfaction of the carriage return lever. I do not miss...

    Fuji Free copy of Skylum 3 for Fujifilm Lens owners!

    Luke - check out Bobby's experience though. Used S/N was accepted, so whatever's on the back-end seems spotty.

    Fuji Free copy of Skylum 3 for Fujifilm Lens owners!

    Sometimes I find for stuff like this, it doesn't hurt to use a smartphone browser. You run less of a chance picking up hitch-hikers (i.e., malware, bad scripts, viruses) because of the OS. And I don't run scripting controls like I do on the full PC, so whatever badly written script needs to kick...

    Cheap memory cards - 400gb micro SDXC for $62, 512gb microSD for $99

    It's worth refreshing your memory card collection - if nothing else for the wear and tear on these SDs - that's the one thing I do miss about the CF format - if you did bend a pin, yes it was nearly disastrous. On the other hand, I could sit on one all day (by accident) and it wouldn't be worse...

    Coming full circle

    I just find I need more time to shoot. Maybe different subjects, maybe someplace new. Can't really afford from a Time & Expense point to travel far or for too long, so I peruse maps and even look in the paper at the occasional tourist brochures. Every once in a while I find a place, pin it on...

    Google Pixel 3 (I think I'm done with "traditional" cameras)

    I can't really complain - with a full charge and on Battery Saver mode, I can get 16h with nominal usage. It's not like I'm away from a charger for more than an hour at a time. I have a charger at the office, in the car, at home. I practice what I tell my kids - don't turn down any chances to...

    Google Pixel 3 (I think I'm done with "traditional" cameras)

    One feature that really makes the 3a stand out positively: the smaller phone has a larger battery than the premium 3XL! I watched the Pixel segment at I/O 2019, they stated a 30 hour maximum life between chargings. Heck, if I could get even 22 hours it would be a big win on the 3.

    Google Pixel 3 (I think I'm done with "traditional" cameras)

    It's visual only, no zebra stripes or overlay. It works pretty decently on the rear camera, a little less optimal for selfies. Also, there is a menu setting with sliders for overall blur, foreground and background.
  17. Covey22

    Google Pixel 3 (I think I'm done with "traditional" cameras)

    What would sell the 3a is the improvements in battery life. I carry a big-butt Anker just in case I'm away from an AC outlet for an extended period. It's enough to recharge the 3 about 2x from a low state, but dang it's heavy.

    Google Pixel 3 (I think I'm done with "traditional" cameras)

    I love the 3, no complaints. But the 3a harkens to the Nexus days where you could have a Manufacturer Reference phone without paying an arm and a leg. @Kevin wait a month or two to see how the launch shakes out bug wise. There were many horror stories (as there always are in product launches)...

    Skylum Users - Shutterfly App and Four Free 8 x 10 Prints - Check your e-mails

    I got the e-mail as a Skylum User - for installing the Shutterfly App, I got four free 8 x 10 prints on Art Paper Stock in a promo code. You just pay S&H, which is pretty neat since an average cost for the prints alone is over 75 USD without any frames or frills. Ironically, the Store itself...

    Amish Phone Booth (Lancaster County PA)

    LOL - My 2nd or 3rd trip to Lancaster and surrounding was with my son's HS Band. I was the bad parent and pointed out the famous sign when we arrived in said specific town. :D Hey, they were all old enough to appreciate the humor.

    What's your creative type? Adobe launches quiz to analyze you.

    I'm a Thinker. Yeah, I guess. Let me think about that. On a more serious note, a light hearted M-B quiz. This could be interesting in a group off-site for the office. Or deadly.

    The Urban Image Thread

    Former mills that dots the region, now turned into a relatively expensive loft apartment complex. For this one, they kept the original tower facade and the stack, probably too expensive to demo. Unfortunately the owner of this and several others in the state is in court for poor maintenance...

    "Around to it" - My brain works in mysterious ways...

    I had to look it up when I first heard Zeiss was making XF mounts, and realized that whatever they spent on their marketing firm to come up with that brand name, they probably overpaid and then some. Yes, I really want to buy a lens named after a Parrot. :laugh: Fortunately they didn't skimp on...

    Seen while strolling...walking and wandering outside

    Still more dignified than my "squeeze whatever's in my supporting hand in between my thighs" patented awkward shutterbug move. And the dog is curious, not slobbering for a bite like my typical encounters, so bonus points there. :D

    1964 receipt for a camera!

    Hand written receipts, and legibly too. Those days were already on the decline when I was old enough to pay for most of my disposable income items. Love seeing that plus telephone number exchanges that you only read about nowadays.

    Feedback Trophy?

    For a minute "Enemy of the State" ran through my mind because I suddenly got a rash of "Top Fan" badges on that big blue Social Media network. Coincidence is reassuring. And I'm very entertained by the trophies I have so far.

    Fuji A leather case review for GFX50R

    I found the intended "review." To Luke's point, it's just a 57 second eye candy video of the case. Notably, the YouTube poster happens to be the case OEM, so *yuuuuugge" grain of salt.

    Yep - typically 1300 x 760 or so. Mine is 2400 x 1600 bit that's a little out of the norm.

    Post-Processing on Chromebook - Mostly Snapseed

    Disclaimer; I've been on a JPG only workflow since moving to Fuji XF several years ago. I do take RAW back-ups for critical shots, but oftentimes they're just insurance, I've yet to really use them. I can upload my photos using a USB-C reader and they can be copied to the local file system and...

    Chromebook woes ...

    Well, one quick and relatively painless chat with Google Support - and I've got an RMA label. Fortunately I had all the information they needed right at hand or stored on the Cloud. So now for the replacement wait. As an aside, it's fascinating what kind of remote tools they've built to...

    Chromebook woes ...

    Ouch. My sympathies! Data loss is tough, and keeping things backed up is something I would like to automate eventually, but I have this need to scrub it before it goes up. So we're all eventually burned in one way or another. ChromeOS was something new to me as of last year, and I made a...

    Your experiences with traveling light?

    I miss the Mechanical Zoom on my Fuji X30, which the RX100 replaced. But the sensor was just killing me as I pushed it to the limits. I really wish Fuji would put out an X80 with an APS-C and an EVF, but it would likely cannibalize the low-end XF line.
