    Animals Goat Day Afternoon

    So last Friday I spent the afternoon with some of the fine folks at Integrazers, who have been helping to do both weed abatement and fire mitigation here in California for years by leasing their herds of goats and sheep to landowners, industrial parks, and even neighborhood HOAs. Cue cuteness...

    Fuji So the Pony Express Passed Through This Morning...

    I never use presets (well, very rarely), but I almost always use Topaz DeNoise AI with the Clear setting, as I did here. I usually follow up with Topaz Sharpen AI, but in bright sun like we'll have for the next 4 months, it wasn't necessary. Not sure if leaving it out is what caused the "wiggle...

    Fuji So the Pony Express Passed Through This Morning...

    I was watching the real-time schedule (they were carrying a GPS module that updates every five minutes, something that was sorely lacking in the 1800s). In Nevada, they were running a bit late, but by the time they showed up in my neighborhood, they were bang on time to the minute!

    I think this was too tall to go with the others, or something. It didn't show up until I put it in its own post. But it's my favorite.

    If it were an actual f-stop at 32, yes, because of the small aperture. But you're calculating light dropoff.

    I don't "need" any of the advanced video features, but I'm hoping the advanced AF and buffer improvements make it to the X-H2 as well (although I don't "need" 40MP either).

    Actually we had a complete food chain a few years back. An 8' boa constrictor (and the other snakes and a lizard or three), almost a dozen indoor cats, a full fish tank, and one or two rats. Everyone stayed in their lane and got along. The cats know friends from food; the snakes not so much...

    I'm pretty sure that external cooling thing is going to be for shooting constant 8K video and for no other use case...but we'll find out tomorrow.

    Fuji Maybe Fujifilm?

    Well, I'm getting mad results with the X-S10 / XF70-300 / Topaz combination. The buffer can be an issue, but Fujifilm is announcing two new bodies tomorrow (with hopefully improved autofocus!) and at least one of them should work great for stills and also have two slots.
