  • Replied in 4K or not?
    Hmmm...   according to this graph, when I sit 10' away from my 36" 480p CRT tv, even with good eyesight, I should struggle to see any difference in resolution between my 17-year-old behemoth and ...
  • Replied in 4K or not?
    Interesting bit of trivia; Peter Jackson's "Lord Of The Rings" trilogy was filmed using ordinary (for major films) 24 fps cameras and received high praise, including many Oscars. Now rich beyond ...
  • Replied in 4K or not?
    Although you may very well be correct about my needing a visit to the eye doctor and some new glasses, by main point was really that there is a point along the resolution spectrum where a certain ...
  • Replied in 4K or not?
    Playing devils advocate for 4K fans out there; 1) You don't see in 4K https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxNBiAV4UnM 2) I have 100+ hours of video of our kids and various vacations. I never, EVER, ...
  • No camera limits the size of a print. The camera has a certain number of pixels (18,000,000) in your case, or roughly 5100 pixels wide by 3400 pixels high. You can then use those pixels to print ...
  • Replied in Budapest
    Imagine a country where a building that seems rather old now was actually built to commemorate the 1000-year anniversary of the founding of the nation. It kind of makes that whole bicentennial ...
  • We spent about a day and a half in Vienna, arriving early one morning on the night train from Venice, staying one night in a hotel, and leaving in the early afternoon of the next day toward Budapest. ...
  • Based on what I've heard and read (and the impression I've gotten being there twice), I would guess that about 30% of the dwellings in Venice are vacant and in disrepair, another 40% are rented to ...
  • Here are some shots from last month's 2 1/2 day visit to Venice. We arrived on the night train from Munich, stayed two nights in an Airbnb (which I highly recommend), and departed on the night ...
  • I'm never bothered by anyone taking a different stab at post-processing, cropping, leveling, etc. I've never quite understood why a few others seem to get irritated by it. And I agree that my ...
  • Replied in Church in Munich
    Our most recent summer family trip started in Munich, followed by 2-day stops in Venice, Vienna, Budapest, and five different cities in Romania. In the coming days I'll show a few images from each ...
  • I'll go to $11.00 if you throw in an extra battery.
  • Rules state you must include  price. I would suggest keeping in mind that the camera was first introduced quite a long time ago (in camera terms).
  • I'm curious as to why a person wouldn't spend $52 less ordering it from any one of a dozen dealers online, NEW, with easy return for refund?
  • You've accomplished more in the last month than most people. Congratulations on getting both the house and the beloved dog spruced up. The house looks fantastic. I hope all goes well with the rest ...
  • Exhibition only. I'm traveling in a few days and can't host. But with any luck, I'll be able to take some decent photos along the way and eventually share some of them. Munich, Venice, Vienna, ...
  • That's a fine looking motorhome! I've never had one but have always been intrigued by them. Being a pessimist at heart, I think I would be driven mad by the 101 things that could go wrong with ...
  • Replied in Thank you!
    I'm glad to hear you are making plans. That's an excellent sign. As you know, I'm not rural. I live in the relatively big city of Minneapolis. But it's a pleasant residential neighborhood, we have ...
  • Sony already has a compact 35mm f2 that gets amazing reviews and can be had used for as little as $800. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your point of view), it also has a great camera ...
  • I do love trees... Entry #1; Northern California beach Entry #2; The "Wanaka Tree" Wanaka, New Zealand Entry #3; An autumn path at our cabin, PP'd in a high key fashion Exhibition; More trees at ...
