About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

Congrats on the win.
How was the trip to Việt Nam? Did you like the people, scenery, food, weather, etc.? :D

What's up with people voting "I had it", when this is a brand new camera. Darn haters.

What beautiful homes. I'm surprised they were all abandoned with the furnishings in them. More surprised that the furnishings are still there.

Video screen grab suggestion:
If you do a screen grab, it's preferable to use .png as the format, because .jpg will give compression artifacts, as clearly seen on the lettering/font of the advertising on the right, above the lady's (in the white headband) head.

I want it packed so densely, that I'll have to break out my microscope. ;P

tompabes2: I'm sick of vintage pictures, frankly speaking.

Real vintage photos, or current photos made to look vintage? ;)

I would like to see samples (with no software defringing) in these two situations:

1) Backlight objects that are dark, against a bright sky, to see if there's purple/blue fringing.
2) Bright shimmering ripples gleaming with the Sun's light in front of the camera (like the backlit scenario), to also test the above.
