Re: Challenge #43: “Autumn; From Summer To ”- Voting ends No

Each poll only allows 10 question items at time because of the forum software. Right, but my issue is not the number of items in each poll, it's that you only allow 1 vote per poll. The forum software does allow multiple votes per poll, up to the maximum number of choices (10). To truly be fair in ...

Re: Challenge #43: “Autumn; From Summer To Winter”-ends Nov

Just a question, and something that does not seem quite fair to me. There are 3 polls, all with 1 voting option. It seems to me that depending on how photos get grouped with other photos, esp since you ask folks to vote in all three polls, that will influence the way the voting turns out. What if so...

Agreed. I have a bottle in my freezer for any sort of emergency that might just happen to pop up. :)

Re: A77 Question...

A previously owned camera is just that - previously owned - even if unopened. The warranty will only be good from the date of the receipt, so assuming you send it to the buyer, they miss several months of warranty. I would buy a new, unopened but previously owned body only from someone I knew, and ...

A77 Question...

So I'm now seriously thinking about getting one. Not to use for myself, but to sit on and sell come early December. With the flooding in Thailand, a few places still have them, but they are selling out FAST. When they are gone, it looks like they will be unavailable until Mid-Jan. I think I could ge...

And LL's review....

"In any event, purchasers should feel confident that this is a first rate optic worthy of the "G" designation."

Happy Fall from the pumpkin patch.

Went to pick up a couple of pumpkins today. When we got there there was an awesome tree in the background in full color. I had my camera, tripod and radio triggers in the car, so we took the opportunity to get a family portrait. 1 https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-XnT5jfZv75Y/TqNKpFZ9URI/AAAAAAAAIK...

Re: WOW? Price Jump Sticker shock!!

This all has to do with the Dollars value against the Yen. Don't blame Sony, blame the US Fed. The Fed has dumped tons of $$$ on the world market, causing the value of the dollar to decline.
