(sure, pretty extreme at ISO 6400)

What the...? What kind of black magic does the X-T2 inside it's body? Don't get me wrong, all cams (espacially compared to my old Rebel) are performing quite good... but... just look at the T2!

Damn! Have to save a few extra €€ now... Already liked the concept of the T2 with the huge EVF, the manual controls, the Fuji firmware update policy, the Fujion lenses and now this.

Add the Pentax K70 to the comparison and you will see something a tiny bit better than the XT2 and costing a lot less.

Gathering flowers for two bouquets for Mommy when we pick her up at the airport after her three day trip away. Little sister is filling her basket with whatever looks good. Big sister is carefully inspecting each flower to pick the perfect ones.

First you find the Pokemon. But then you have to capture it which involves a lot of poking around on the screen very excitedly.

On photo Dog in Yard in OpticsEngineer's photo gallery (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

OpticsEngineer: The Dog In Yard was named Buster. A New Mexican Brown. We didn't own him because he was not the kind of dog one owns. He lived in our house and he was his own dog. He came into my life as a stray that would spontaneously join me my Aussies when we were out for a morning run. Mysteriously appearing from nowhere and then vanishing after an hour or so of jogging. Until he followed us home. Not the least bit cuddly. But street smart and strong. I felt privileged we knew him.

A few times a week Buster would decide it was time for his walk, no waiting around for those humans. He would jump up and scramble right over that wall. He had been a stray for many months so people were used to him in the neighborhood. But while everyone knew him, he would let no one anywhere close to him. (No one except me and Sabrina) Probably the sign on the gate should have said "Beware of Dog." But a sign like that along with the spectacle of big brown sharped toothed dog busting over the wall could have scared someone to death. Seeing as to how he always ran away from people he was not a threat to anyone out in the open. So we settled on the sign Dog in Yard. Just a statement of fact. Straight to the point, no editorializing or embellishment, and that was the kind of dog Buster was.

Sign that hung on Route 66 in Albuquerque for many many years -- probably fifty or more. My Dad bought his OM1 there. Sign bought cheap from Kurts Camera Korral when they closed in 2016. Needed a new ballast which was put in by Neon Hut a few blocks away.

Perfect location, perfect advertising. My brother was born in that hospital. Mom had a room on the top floor with a window where she could see the Cordell Photography Studio sign. They took many pictures of our family over the years.
