    Help! Someone wants to buy my photos.

    It did indeed pan out. They added a photo, and I wound up at $100 a shot for unlimited use. That's a good price for them, and I'm happy.

    They wrote back. This may pan out! I'm excited.

    No Reply! Boy, have I got the magic touch. Oh well.

    For the 'Bike Crew', do you guys use any apps when riding?

    Bike far enough, and you can eat whatever you want.

    For the 'Bike Crew', do you guys use any apps when riding?

    The two big ones are Strava, and RideWithGPS. Strava has a free option, which is probably exactly what you want. The big attraction for most users of it is the social aspect, which I suspect you would hate. The super fit guys use it to see who else has done that route, how fast. They check up...

    Help! Someone wants to buy my photos.

    I managed to get my friend on the phone, who is a professional sports photographer. Interesting: normal rates currently for clothing / equipment companies for web/social use is $150-250 per image. People with shallower pockets, like the ones looking to license these 3 from me, it's usually more...

    Help! Someone wants to buy my photos.

    A tourism agency found some of my photos on my wife's website, and is inquiring about buying some for their advertising. Which is awesome, of course. But ... I've never done THIS this, not exactly like this. What's a fair price, and how do we document it?

    The 18-55 is almost too good.

    Sebring plans finalized

    Regarding the 23 1.4: I had it, and wanted to love it badly, but never did. Had it for ~ 3 years, and shot it a ton. I've made good with the rokinon 12mm, 18-55, 27 pancake, 35 1.4, 56, 50-230, Minolta 55... just never got to a place where I "got" the value proposition of that big 23. Huge...

    You did a VERY good job with that 90. I know exactly what you're doing, and it ain't easy.

    Very interesting. Thanks for posting.

    "everyone has a Fuji now"

    It must've been the standalone Fuji printer my friend had, then. Because I remember sending an image to it and printing. My daughter still has it in her room.

    "everyone has a Fuji now"

    Whichever model shoots its own pics, but can also link to X cams via wifi.
  15. KillRamsey

    "everyone has a Fuji now"

    I'd love to have one, if only so A) my daughter can shoot pics with it, and B) I can stream images to print from it from my "real" fuji cams.

    50-230 vs 55-200 vs 50-140

    I mean... yes the 50-140 is in all aspects (other than max reach) a better tool for everything, no question. But let us not so casually dismiss the 50-230 as not fit for sports. KBRX3139P by gordopuggy, on Flickr KBRX1732 by gordopuggy, on Flickr And the times I brought it to a dark, indoor...

    Hows weather at your place?

    ^ Funny, we hit the 50s today too, and I'm nowhere near you. Feels like April out there.

    So sorry to hear it. Take all the good you can from him, and keep it going.

    This too shall pass!

    Ohhhh no. There's a very similar one in Santa Monica, CA that we saw this past summer.

    Going Old School - Purposefully Working In Manual Focus Lenses (Image Heavy)

    I enjoy the shooting experience on XT1 + Rokinon 12 or Minolta 55 1.7 more than any of my AF lenses, most of the time. I'm with you. The AF lenses win when there are subjects changing distance constantly. Otherise, I love the direct drive of helical gears moving lens elements, and that the focus...

    ....whoa. That's a whole new kind of "environmental hazard."

    You make me appreciate the ease with which I can go ride, all over again.

    Someone stole my Bike

    A friend has the H bar, and loves it. Lots of options, but not as big, clunky, or "wacky old man" looking as Trekking bars or "far bars."
  24. KillRamsey

    Someone stole my Bike

    Should you instead decide to cut your current bars down, a standard pipe cutting tool that rotates around the pipe would work.

    Someone stole my Bike

    I've been on several rides with friends at the local intense trails, and on those twisty bits through the trees, they're swaying and ducking to get those massive flat bars around corners without hitting a grip on a tree. I have no such issues.

    Someone stole my Bike

    Yes.... yes the "baseball bat" bars, as I call them, are now the defacto standard on offroad bikes, unless they're drop bar dirt bikes. And I do -not- get it. I really like a nice 40-45 degree bend for my wrists, makes my hands happy all day. I went with (and love) a Velo Orange made bar called...

    Someone stole my Bike

    Very nice! 10 miles offroad is like 40 on-road... if that's what you did. Speaking of, I did 47 with a group from my cyclocross team this past Saturday. 4,000 ft of climbing, and some wildfire smoke in the air meant I went to bed with a headache. It was a lot of work, but I went the whole route...

    So, so many new bikes are matte black these days. It's a trend.

    Someone stole my Bike

    I first ran across that brand when we did a guided tour for 6 days in Eastern Oregon. I rode one of their bikes, which came with a larger version of the BarKeep. So I had my Domke in it, always accessible, and for six days I was in heaven. I got home, and missed it.

    Someone stole my Bike

    And to be more specific, I drop my Domke bag into the Axiom, with the camera bag's cover wrapped around under it, so when I open the Axiom lid, I can grab the camera.

    Someone stole my Bike

    Love that Roscoe. The tire size is a newish development, called "27 5 Plus", or "27.5+" on paper. Smaller diameter than the more common recent defacto 29" tires, but nice and chunky width to really hold traction well. Also a big fan of a 1x drivetrain, and hydraulic brakes, so yeah this is...

    I can highly recommend the folding locks ABUS makes (really any lock they make, they're a fabulous bike lock maker), the "Bordo" line: ABUS folding locks - Locks - Bike safety and security What I like about them is the relatively small size, light weight, ability to fix into a holder on the...

    Someone stole my Bike

    The little town I live in is a bike/wind sports mecca. There are a LOT of $4,000 ($8,000, $10,000) bikes around here. Police last year told us one common theft method is that thieves have a van, come down the interstate, cruise through town slowly looking for unlocked bikes on car racks, then...

    Daaamn. Did they grab it off the car rack?

    The Power of the Camera Phone

    Congrats! And yep. It's the only camera you (more or less) ALWAYS have with you. When it's hot out, and I'm going for a long bike ride, it's hard to bring a real camera. But the phone slips into a jersey pocket...

    As a side note, this sounded to me like a global shutter. Is it? If it is, why didn't they call it that?

    The Amazing Emporium of Wondrous Tunes (aka: What are you listening to?)

    Willie's still holding on, but from what I've seen, his live performance isn't what it used to be. Huge pauses, singing (purposefully, but still) miles behind the beat, and sparse arrangements. Everyone's gotta slow down sometime I guess.

    Bugbears

    The nets are another related kind of shot. I just keep seeing these long lens, sunset golden hour backlit shots of people splashing. Maybe it's just one guy, and it's dominating my feed.

    Bugbears

    Malnourished fishermen in Thailand throwing water symmetrically over their heads. ...it has to stop. I can't see another one without breaking my monitor.
