I remember when I laughed at plastic lenses... I feel so inadequate now.

cercis: Sure, at $50000 less a discount it costs Intel less than hiring real photogs with an investment in the business.

One never knows. There may be the creative spark still existing in people who do not take pictures to fit the formula. Cut some slack - play or don't, don't be a quick critic. Geez.

A winter storm in Capitola. You don't often see these 12+ foot waves. They shook the house.

Lens maxed out on a very bright day. I believe this shows the near extreme limits of the camera and lens (AF Nikkor 70-300mm f4-5.6D ED) Subject was at about 1/4 mile. Rather like the effect on the contrails.

Believe it or not, this was taken with the humble Kodak Zi6. Impressive macro work for a very inexpensive camera.

Strange to see the child in focus but the middle ground not.

davidthegray: I can't believe it has no built-in gps for geotagging yet!
What are they waiting ofr?

Probably don't want integrated GPSr for Geotagging as most cameras with this feature have terrible battery life and most often have lacklustre accuracy on the integrated receiver/processor, which can be off by considerable distances, further, do not often update position as quickly as desired. Best to leave it as an add-on and let that unit (GP-E2) do the heavy liftring when you want it.

As for use of these, I do a lot of hiking and am notorious for coming home with hundreds of pictures I just can't recall exactly where were taken, but really, really want to add them to my Everytrail trip.

I've got old and pragmatic, shedding my younger, idealistic days. It's a luxury and usually a fantasy, to march around in the woods with a $3,500 camera, taking perfectly framed pictures with ideal lighting. Now I take a fat memory clip and hundreds of pictures and weed them out when I get back home. Some winners, a lot of losers, but hopefully the memory of the trip is faithfully preserved.
