Re: Thanks. That was in Pyongyang, North Korea, in late July.

Also sneaked filming of the military parade most of which I recorded at the wrong white balance because I hadn't changed the custom back to "auto" from the night before. Duh. Was able to fix it somewhat in Lightroom and that's also on YouTube. I messed up the stills, also, by giving the camera "video priority" over stills if I shoot a still while recording video. Another duh. My stills, which I added to the YouTube clips, look like shots from a five year-old phone. Really unhappy about that (kinda like your situation) because the composition of the stills was good and the subject matter was incredible. I got a shot of a soldier hanging out of the window of the cab of a huge missile-carrying truck holding a pink flower. And some really good ones of young female (look about 15) navy recruits celebrating, posing, and cheering when they saw my camera - no one has cameras there.

Just like you leaving your faster lens in the truck, I knew (KNEW!) one should never take a new camera on an important trip or shoot without learning how to use it. Triple Mega Duh!

And the reality that I have to face is that my rapidly accumulating birthday anniversaries are leading to an increasing frequency of "Duhs"!
