About me:

I am an Amercain that has been living in France since 1998. I was born in the U.S. in 1961. I am from Connecticut, near the Long Island Sound shoreline.

  • Oddly, I was looking at Canon DSLR prices (5D mark IV and 6D mark II ) about nine months ago, and then again today. There are several easy to imagine explanations as to why, but even so, the prices...

  • Replied in Intel NUC
    Everybody says you can do just as well for less money, but the Intel NUCs are not bad quality. I like the two that I have.
  • Replied in 14 years ago
    14 years ago, I looked at my 4500 Euro Canon 1D mark 2, sitting on a table, and I said to myself, « if I was ever victim of a burglary, that would be gone ». And I decided to hide it at the bottom ...
  • Actually, that is a tiny bit shocking.

  • Oddly, or perhaps not so oddly, I was wondering if I could find a thread like this, and sure enough here one is. This morning I took a photo in my kitchen with my 6D mk2 and my 50L, and a flash. ...

  • Replied in Eiffel Tower
    One could ask the same question about the Eiffel Tower, or the Leaning Tower of Pisa. This is not to say I see anything wrong with it. But it is the same question, almost.
  • And I just want to say, I disagree with you both. It's not good. :-)
  • For myself, if I had the extra money, and if I was looking for a new body, sure, yes, I would get one without hesitation. But I am a bit strange. As far as giving advice, for somebody that isn’t ...
  • Replied in Gimp
    I will have to research "the HSV dialog". Just learning things, slowly, one by one, over years, it's my current pace with Gimp. Thanks.
  • Replied in Gimp
    I really can't say, because I have mastered so little of it. Layers, that's still above my level, pretty much. Cropping, resizing, rotating ... and maybe getting rid of sensor dust specks (clone / ...
  • Replied in Gimp
    Well, first of all, Tom, if you will permit me to address you by your first name :-) ... I write software for a living, so I have nothing against programmers getting paid. :-) My only opposition is ...
  • Replied in Gimp
    I don't do much ... resizing, cropping, rotating ... but I use Gimp. My theory is that it is free, and it is, arguably, the most feature rich. If later I need some advanced feature, I will already ...
  • I would think that would be an excellent guess. I see this is the OP's first or second post. This may, perhaps, also be the start of their experience with RAW files, maybe.
  • 4 lenses, shoots 4 images.
  • If you like using the 50mm length, I would seriously consider the 50mm L. The 50 that you have is a great bargain, and the 50mm L, at $1500 or so, is not, but the 50 L is a truly exceptional and ...
  • In 2019, August 2019, I would get Erdingers at the supermarket in Sankt Peter Ording, and enjoy them out on the porch, 7th floor, I think. Or 9th. Looking out at the North Sea, after a day of ...

    2019, Sankt Peter Ording:
  • It’s interesting that you mention that place, because it is a fine store, and I went there, but I was really looking for Erdinger. And the guy told me that even if it was a fine enough beer, ...
  • Finding the Erdinger in Paris was not 100% easy. Well, it was easy after I knew, but not before. :-) I wonder if I have had a Weihenstephaner. Maybe.
