OK, how did the Library of Congress get into my photo album?

An image from Webb of a galaxy a half-billion light years away from earth.

Now, that's what I call a telephoto lens.

I have had a D7100 Nikon for years, and it is my go-to camera when my phone just won't do. But, I doubt that I will download and install this update.

After reading what the update will correct, I realized that I have never encountered the problem. Maybe because I almost never use live view. And too, the last time I downloaded and installed an update, the process was grindingly slow. So, no thanks.

I don't consider my phone to be my primary camera. I have a Nikon for that. Would it matter if my Motorola had 200MP? Probably not.

But, I do have a Motorola smartphone that I have had since 2019, and it still works like the day I got it. So, they make a great phone, and the camera is OK, too.

The guy (or is it two guys?) modeling for this article do a really good job looking both devilish and angelic.

If it is one guy, how does he do that?

So many amazing parts of this story.

First, that the ship could even be found below the ice at 10,000 feet below the surface.

And second, that all the crew survived in some of the harshest conditions on Earth.

And finally, that this wooden ship still looks so remarkably well preserved after more than 100 years under the sea.

Absolutely amazing.

Steve in GA: Those who miss and mourn the days of mechanical video cameras should watch this video.

The digital world is capable of things that would have been absolutely impossible only a few years ago.


When you are as old as I am, the number of years since the digital age began seem like few.

Hmm. I wonder if someone will try to fine NASA and the companies that own satellites as they pass over the stadium?

It's a flying submarine!

Wait, I think I've seen this movie...

The colors in this clip are absolutely gorgeous.

Don't be misled by the title of this video, as I was. Maybe it should be renamed, "Beautiful".

But, the bottom line is to make sure you are not the tallest object in the field beneath a thunderstorm.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see this as an improvement over the camera in a cell phone.

On article What you need to know about the new Nikon Z9 (525 comments in total)

While I have no doubt that the Z9 is better than its older DSLR competitors, including those from Nikon.

But, the big question remains as to whether the performance improvements of the Z9 are enough to warrant spending $5,500 plus thousands more for lenses that that will allow the Z9 to reach its full potential.

NYC had better be careful.

Putting up statues of people has become a dangerous business. Members of the "Woke" are probably hard at work researching her background for what they might consider 'character flaws'.

I like standardization as well as anyone. But, in this case I have to agree with Apple.

This is an overreach by the EU. Will the EU continue to standardize connectors when technology advances leave the USB leave the USB in the Stone Age?

Interesting. And, I say that because I at first thought I would just skim the high points of this story, but I quickly got hooked and read the whole thing.

By the way, the fifth sentence of the first paragraph has a word missing. The missing word is probably, "remember".
