    What's the story here, Miguel? I find it interesting and possibly depressing at the same time.

    Yeah, it's not well-known, but I love that it's displayed next to the first mass-production model to come off the production line.

    A powerhouse at the Grand Trunk Railroad's defunct section of their Port Huron railyards. The roof had completely caved in by my next visit, three months later.

    Stroll Abandoned

    Incomplete spectator stands of what was to become a sports complex near Port Huron, Michigan, US. It was begun as a hockey arena and winter-sports complex for a local semi-professional hockey team, while also intended for use by locals as their own competition and recreational venue...

    Meadow Brook Concourse D'elegance, 2008. 1935 or nearly, Auburn boattail speedster. The man in front of the car is my friend's father, who was an accomplished photographer. He was a veteran of US war efforts, and loved photography. I chose to honor him in this photo.

    With AI here - do I really need a camera?

    Yeah, and I'm spinning away in Michigan, where it doesn't seem to change much. We'll get colder and warmer, but we'll deal with it. I'll have to deal with -19° F windchills before winter ends, and I'll take advantage of my car's remote start to warm my car, but it'll get seriously cold here, no...

    Here's one that will likely never be sold, as it's one of one, making it an example which can not be accurately valued unless it ever goes to auction.

    Feedback Two questions, possible suggestions

    From what I've experienced, Bill, it works this way: Upon a fresh visit(Firefox LTSR, Windows 10), you'll see notifications. I can click the notifier 'bell,' it lists everything new, I right-click or middle-click each entry to find out the comments or likes, close the new window, and the list...

    The oldest camera you actually have a reason for using?

    Because I never liked dealing with film... Canon S3iS for me. It's very compact and lightweight, still provides high-quality images, has an extremely impressive optical focal range, easily accepts CHDK for recording RAW, uses common AA batteries, can take filters with cheap accessory tubes...

    You have succinctly responded to my final paragraph, and I fully understand why a pre-built unit is for you, which is why my final paragraph was added. I won't try to pressure you into anything you wouldn't want to tackle for yourself, so you're the ideal justification for the close on my post...

    Here's a breakdown of component purchasing. Based only on the mentioned generation-13 i7-13700 and the included DELL system components, and only from one source: NewEgg. Also, SOLD BY NewEgg, not third-parties. As the OP mentioned desktop, here's how I'd build a comparable system with pricing...

    Maybe late to this about a "dead" PC, but, There's no way to beat the cost/value equation if you build it yourself with standard off-the-shelf components. With DELL, You're certainly paying for the 'clout' of a well-known builder, just as much as if you were buying from HP or ASUS or others...

    Canon Showcase EOS 5D Mark IV

    I'd like to feel that I've contributed fairly well so far, but it'd seem I'll do well if I get out more with further examples to contribute. Even so, the 5D4 is likely where I top off, so I'd encourage discussion. I've a 28-135 USM II lens for situations unknown, while the rest of the manual...

    Canon Showcase EOS 5D Mark IV

    Yes, agreed. While a question was asked about maintaining use of PS CS6, it was asked and answered in context of using that version of software with this more-modern camera. It seems to me that this is indeed pertinent to the overall experience of using the 5D4, which should be encouraged and...

    Okay. For several years, the property was owned by a developer known as REIS. They spent a few years creating plans for use of the site. Their goal was mixed use: housing, retail, offices, dining, etc. They worked closely with Northville Township, getting to know their codes and ordinances, and...

    Yeah, that was a racist, sexist, mysoginistic show even during its time, even though I remember Jean Stapleton/Edith Bunker screaming out "Those were the daaaaaays!." I hated that show, and I hated Archie Bunker, even as a child. Archie was my own father, personified on the TV airwaves. Bigoted...

    Canon Virtual Reality Through a New Lens: Canon Introduces Their First Dual Fisheye Lens for Stereoscopic 3D 180° VR Capture in 8K

    You can actually do it yourself with a single lens and camera. I've done it myself, and the results have been pretty good, but you need to be able to view it with a crosseyed take. I don't seem to have any examples online now, so I'll have to dig into my archives for my examples.

    Canon Showcase EOS 5D Mark IV

    I seem to remember this being a 1942 LaSalle, an offshoot brand of Cadillac in the postwar years. LaSalle didn't last long, but was an influential brand at the time, and very important to Cadillac at the time as a less-costly version of their own luxury cars. CORRECTION: The placard seems to...

    Grand Trunk Railroad, Port Huron, Michigan, USA. A portion of their railyards lie in abandonment and disrepair, adjacent to active railyard action. Fairly sketchy to be in there without being caught. I've been there a few times. Railway authorities in the US can hold trespassers for holding...

    With AI here - do I really need a camera?

    Please, allow me to reiterate: AI cannot replace us, as it can't BE us. Cool images can't possibly replace us, as it can't replace us. We determine our images, we set the standards. AI can't ever understand us, as WE set our standards. AI will give us bizarre images for years to come, but only...

    Hello from Sussex (UK)

    Nice to find you here, Stephen. There's been some contention with TP, and I know the MFLenses site was an obstacle, but I'm glad to see others migrating to here and joining up.
