    Interesting comment. Not one person that I spoke to in Florida mentioned climate change. Who among us knows why these folks are focused on other things.

  • Off Topic • Re: Blurb B&W photo books November 21, 2017
    I noticed a few weeks ago that Blurb photo book prices have dropped. Also their shipping price to Japan has dropped. In 2015 this B&W book I made in Lightroom was $70, but now the identical book is $50. The shipping to Japan was $23, but now it is $11.About 3 weeks ago I decided […]

A57 – no GPS

A57 announced today does what was needed and updates the A55 to have a decent EVF, plus a few bells and whistles. It’s got a 77-style microphone, and also a mic input socket for external mic moved to a better position than the A55. It has full 1080/50p video capability, 12 fps burst mode (with . . . → Read More: A57 – no GPS
