  • Excellent.  As someone else mentioned, "reporting".  Personally relish reading backstories of photographs.   Found your series compelling.  Well done.
  • Here's a link to one of the threads about using the SDQH on first arrival. It does not come near doing justice to what the capability of the camera is. I will be out there during the fall change ...
  • Colorado Springs. You've received a lot of advice so just a little personal experience I can add. Repeat rather. Patience is the operative. Sigma brings me to the photography of yore. As someone ...

  • Interesting thing about the shot is it was taken at lower res, very little post processing, of a .jpg file.  Not x3f.  Have found myself quite partial to not shooting at highest res on many things ...
  • More Fair-ie type shots..
  • Created discussion thread Colorado State Fair
    Colorado State Fair. Tho took a slew shots, found the following nothing shots interesting. Sitting for a moment, set the ‘h’ to 1600, 3200, 6400 iso and plinked away at a booth at nighttime. Very ...

    Couple of things.. I have gone back to reading sensor cleaning threads post sd Quattro and 'H' release so getting up to speed there. I didn't follow these as closely as I am now leading up to this ...
  • Ya... that was the inference of The Men Who Stare at Goats.  Hopefully your crew will sail thru this 'cane.
  • Replied in New 'H' and...
    Tx for your take on this.  Am well acquainted with static charge and these sensors.  7 Sigma bodies later.  Cleaning them is not an issue for me.  Versed in that.   Am just chagrined to be dealing ...
  • Replied in New 'H' and...
    Rick, tx for just posting your words.  Was hoping that at least one from the 'old guard' would have a comment or two. Am mostly dismayed.  The tradeoff is worth it mainly because I am well familiar ...

    Couple of questions. Received an ‘H’ yesterday. Took it out. Did the always test shots to determine the sensor state. From the first shot that exposed sky, sensor dust. It was already there. Also, ...
  • Bon chance getting thru the 'cane.   Was a tot when Hurrican Dot came thru in 1959.  Remember vividly all the hustle and bustle as it was approaching.  We lived on the beach but fortunately didn't ...
  • Replied in Which one?

  • Replied in Which one?
    Sigma of the car world.  Wish I had thought of that.  Yeah... have owned 8.  Have 3 in family now.  I could wax on about the history yes.  Cool vid you posted.  On GB ruining Saab.  We purchased ...
