My cousin Bob Allen visited NM a couple of weeks ago ... looky what he made me.  The cholla wood is from my own yard!  Totally cool.

365/2: 271.  Late again; should have posted this yesterday.

365/2: 271.

Reshuffling my hard drives, I like to leave the computer to do its thinking alone. Why this boring image? I was driving around returning equipment, doing errands, trotting over to 42A to look for my favorite do-rag (blew off during the Mountain Tour on Saturday). The entire day was car-oriented.

No, my do-rag is gone. Bought it on the way to Grand Teton in ‘05. It’s either been picked up, or shredded on barbed wire in our fall winds. Sad. And Buff doesn’t make that print anymore.

FAA: FAA Exemptions for Commercial UAS Movie and TV Production.

In their applications, the firms said the operators will hold private pilot certificates, keep the UAS within line of sight at all times and restrict flights to the ‘sterile area’ on the set.” This sort of indicates how the agency is going to deal with drones. Operators need to have a knowledge of airspace, weather and more.  Just because it looks and costs the same as a toy, doesn’t mean that operation in public airspace is without dangers.

EOSHD: Nikon D750 Review - initial thoughts and video footage.

... I really miss my stabilised Canon lenses. The problem is for Canon lens owners like myself, aside from the very expensive 1D C, Canon are down across the range of DSLRs and mirrorless cameras for performance. They are now a distant 4th on video quality behind Sony, Panasonic and Nikon and a mediocre 3rd behind Sony and Nikon when it comes to stills quality on their APS-C and full frame sensors.”  Damn.

We are well and truly into autumn now.

Yes, I’m behind the 8-ball.

I’ll catch up with stuff here shortly.  Post-Concorso, there’s just so much to get accomplished in a very short period of time.  Links will increase in frequency gradually once I get the Award Winner images finalized.

5,747 images taken in the last three days.

There’ll be probably about 2000 polished keepers out of all that. Most of the extra chaff was in taking extra shots while in a moving vehicle. I definitely need to rethink my hard drive setup on the office system ... a RAID is called for.

Santa Fe Concorso weekend starts today for me.

I may even be late with my 365’s.  At worst, I’ll catch up on Monday. Wish me luck! There’s a 40 percent chance of storms (with small hail) that could really bollix things up on Sunday.

EOSHD: Nikon D810 video quality leapfrogs Canon 5D Mark III.

The D810 now shoots better quality 1080p out of the box than the 5D Mark III. It isn’t 4K or raw but it’s good. In fact Nikon are now providing better image quality than Canon across the range in video mode. Beginning with the D3300 and D5300 which provide a better APS-C image than the 7D Mark II with less moire, Nikon have taken the same improvement to image quality and applied it to the D800’s successor, the D810.”  Ouch, Canon.

Trying the new 16-35 F/4 IS this year.

My brief tests show it’s damned sharp. Excited.  The extra 2.8 of the non-IS version doesn’t buy you much in a wide angle.

And supposedly there’s a car show on the Plaza. I have to go see. I’ll be back with pix later.
