    It's nice to get an idea of what everyone else is doing. Thanks to all. After exploring Ad's list of items I think I will eventually utilize more of LR's tools. Especially since I already have nearly ten years of catalogs without a solid foundation of organization. Right now, I use Flickr's...

    Challenge in April: Who's in?

    I plan on shooting during the weekend and processing and posting during the week. I have an A6400 and an A6000 but will likely use the newer body. For lens(es), I'm going to try two. Sigma 30 1.4 and the Nikon 100mm 2.8E. Hope I can find my old extension tubes.

    Challenge! Cameraderie Photo Challenge #30 - Fun!!

    This challenge's theme is Fun. While such a simple thought there are so many simple things right now that are simply unsimple. I thought just thinking of translating the word into a snapshot or photograph might allow us all to escape all of our new challenges for at least a few moments. Have...

    Leica M and Df and OVF and good coffee and 42.5

    I thought to myself, this is the best thread title of the year but I really don't have anything in common except coffee. Little did I know it's really all about old Nikkors. I almost teared up thinking about them and the Cafe. :biggrin: This. Excellent right into the sun too.

    Workflow 2020

    I think there's huge value in Adobe's subscription plan. For me, it would be an easier path with a potentially minimal financial obligation. And to be truthful without proper GAS management a perpetual license could easily be a burden. I think the move to Capture One is mostly lateral at this...

    Workflow 2020

    I have to admit, with 15 years of digital photography I've never really honed a workflow. I used Lightroom to sort and develop and once in a while I'd finish in Photoshop or a plugin like NIK or Luminar, etc. When Adobe went subscription only, I wandered off to try and find something else but...

    Any board gamers here?

    Catan is fun. Haven't played in a long while. Pandemic too. I used to like RISK in my teens. Lots of backgammon and chess. I want to try throw, throw burrito. Won't have the staying power as some of the classics but probably good for a laugh or ten.

    Personal gear review

    My last dslr was a Pentax K70 a few years ago. The little Pentax primes were on my bucket list. Was fun and now done. ( : I think an older Nikon FX body with F1.8G primes would be something I might try again - then again probably not.

    Fuji Tokina is launching three primes for Fuji

    I would be. If the price/performance ratio was in line. The Fuji 16, 35 and 56 are three of my all time favs. As a Sony aps-c shooter I have no problem saying that my Sigma F1.4s work just as well(for me) at a fraction of the price. @Jonathan F/2 - Disappointing. I was hoping for Tokina...

    Fuji Tokina is launching three primes for Fuji

    Interesting that the E mount Sony lenses show aperture rings but not the FE. Something I thought Sigma would've done for the Fuji mount long ago.

    This is a struggle with me too. I'm starting to realize that I may need both. For the time being, I'm going to add another trigger and run two bodies. Relevant and funny on such a high level.

    I added the A6000 as a backup recently and like it. It's old but still pretty darn capable. One thing led to another and now I have an A6400 and the Sigma 16, 30 and 56. I tried to play in the majors but truth is I'm a minor league baller. ( : This kit gives me a semblance of an old Fuji set up...

    I'm interested also. A google search doesn't bring up much for me. The wireless pro seems to be the cheapest all in one solution I've found. Longshot, but maybe a local printing store can burn to dvd for you? Edit: no internet access = no store. Or maybe a cheap used android phone with...
