Happy birthday, Doc.

When I passed the half-century mark I decided to celbrate every third year...so now I'm 56 and wondering about the guy shaving in the mirror ;-)

Re: Photoshop (etc) by subscription

I wonder how Kevin's math works.

Photoshop: $700 / $35 = 20 months.
I don't see a rental price for Lightroom.

What did I miss?

Nice shot.

Sorry; but, I am compelled to ask...
How was it? Did you get her number?

Re: Firmware update announced for A850/A900

Additionally, never carry a CF card unprotected or else bits of foreign matter will find their way into the pin holes. This will damage pins if insertion is forced.

Never force an insertion into any device. If resistance is met, investigate the reason.

Winston my service manual is a revised edition and contains what I took to be some updated parts on the A700, there is some diags. showing some items in blue. The 'notes' say that the items in blue have been revised. There seems to be four (so far) of what they call 'control switch blocks' these include the control wheels (both are contained in one assembly unit and include the button switches on the top deck) the mode dial and the focus selector switch and ribbon.

Thanks Greg,
Doesn't seem like anything that affects performance or image IQ.

I guess I have two early models. They have both had wheel problems fixed with a little vacuuming.

Re: NUMBER OF SHUTTER RELEASES FOR SONY ALPHA 200? HELP PLEA

I wonder what the faults were. I haven't seen any differences. Maybe I have two early ones?
