  • Hey Richard, I think you found the needle in the haystack!  Although Bill may still be doubtful, I think tonymp may be the illusive Tony that you remember from the "old crowd".  Seems like he has ...
  • Replied in Oh darn!
    Oh darn!  Really?  I was debating whether to purchase the Sony A700 or the Nikon D300 back in late 2007.  But I was under the impression that the slow preflash "sleepy eye" issue was due to the ...
  • I am a man of few words. :-)  I may only have 500+ posts over 14 years on DP Reivew, but I visit the site almost daily.  And when I visit, I always drop in to the Minolta and Nikon forums to see ...
  • I joined DP Review in 2003 when I purchased my first "serious" camera, the Minolta DiMAGE 5. In fact, my very first post was to this forum in September 2003. I enjoyed that 3 megapixel DiMAGE 5 so ...
  • Today was the last day of the 3 day PhotoPlus Expo held in New York City each year. I attended today and came away with a few impressions and insights. First, Canon, Nikon, and Sony had the ...
  • Created discussion thread Minolta camera sold on Woot! today

  • Replied in You are correct!
    Yes, you can walk along the East River waterfront in DUMBO and get this photo spot.  You start out along the water, between the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge.  You head south and walk ...
  • I agree with you.  I think I prefer the horizontal composition too.  But since most of the photographers around me (there must have been 100 photographers, elbow to elbow, on that waterfront... no ...
  • These photos were not taken with my Z990 camera so they may not belong here. I thought I'd share them because today is September 11. If not, then please delete. Tonight I went out to photograph the ...
  • Created discussion thread 9/11 Tribute In Light memorial (not N1)
    These photos were not taken with my N1 camera so they may not belong here.  I thought I'd share them because today is September 11.  If not, then please delete. Tonight I went out to photograph the ...
  • Most of my other pics are basically shots of my wife, son and daughter on the cruise ship, shots of the cruise ship food, etc.  I'll spare you the silly tourist photos.  :-) Regards, Warren http:// ...
  • Created discussion thread A few from Bermuda with my J5
    Just returned from a cruise to Bermuda.  It's a beautiful island with gorgeous beaches and quaint historic towns.  I decided not to bring my Nikon DSLR since I planned to travel the entire island ...
  • Replied in Very nice!
    Very nice photos of totality!  I'm jealous because we only saw 70% here in New York.  I guess I'll have to wait 7 years when the path of totality will pass through New York State. Regards, Warren h ...
  • Replied in Too cool!
    Thanks for putting aside your prim and proper old fart tendencies and making such a nice comment! :-) Ah, my little tripod is one of my old treasures. I bought it maybe 12 years ago. It's a Velbon ...
  • Replied in I see sunspots!
    Very nice!  I think I see sunspots in your photo.  I have to go back and look at my photos to see if I accidentally captured some sunspots too. I said "mylar" in my original post, but in reality I ...
  • Created discussion thread Some solar eclipse photos with my J5
    I didn't have the best equipment... actually I had really crappy equipment. I made a DIY camera filter out of mylar, black cardboard, and scotch tape for maybe $1. But it worked surprisingly well. ...
  • Uh, no... I can't really say that I "like" spiders.  But I do like your photos of them!  :-) Regards, Warren http://www.pbase.com/wtang
  • Replied in Wonder Bread
    I grew up on Wonder Bread so I have a deep unexplained affinity for it.  :-)  I remember there used to be tons of television commercials for Wonder Bread when I was a kid.  Once, my sister and I ...
  • Replied in Night glow
    Yes, they did light up the balloons after dark for the "night glow".  They were just starting that as we were walking out of the balloon festival.  There were A LOT of people in attendance and I ...
  • I took my J5 and 10-100mm PD to the NJ Balloon Festival yesterday.  Unfortunately, due to high winds, the balloons never launched.  But I was able to take a few photos of the balloons on the ground. ...
