I Finally Stopped Thinking Like A Film Guy...

and used ISO 6400 for the first time last week in Manual mode. Even when using TAv, I never went above '5000. I still want the new camera to go down to ISO 50.

Put on a CPL or ND filter to get EI50.

As much as I'd like to see that image at 6400 ISO, I'm more curious about your boxing avatar.

I think you are better off toping at ISO1600 (subexposing intentionally) and adjusting brightness in PP

I've watched boxing since I was five years old(currently 51).

I really enjoy boxing. I was wondering who the fighters were in your avatar.

Did you go to Healdsburg? I also played a Ryan at The Podium in Minneapolis. It was really good but cost a gazillion!

They're Andre Berto and Robert Guererro . Yeah, Healdsburg was cool. The guitar I loved was Al Pettaway's Tippin that had an ergonomic heel and a big voice($18k). I played a Traugott($26k)that belongs to the builder's nephew plays on "American Idol". I gave my Compass Rose to builder Rick Turner to add a pickup and second sound port(http://www.rickturnerguitars.com/pdf/05_FJ10_Turner_all.pdf). Mine isn't this fancy, but it's 1 of 10 built and also got an "Editors Pick" in Guitar Player back in '07.

I'm rooting for Mayweather to stay unbeaten.

Never played a Traugott before. His guitars sure look purty. I haven't played in forever and for some reason, I seem to be losing interest quickly to the extent of thinking about selling.

Mayweather fight coming up quickly. I'm rooting for Pacquiao. If he loses in November, it may be his last fight.

Sorry to hijack your thread.........back to the original topic folks.

Hehe. If that one goes, I'll make sure to call you. It's a modified dread and is an absolute cannon.

I'm also looking for a PRS with a Rosewood neck. Have you taken pics of all your guitars?

I have that SCTrem Artist Package with highly flamed maple top but it has a mahogany neck. My Cu24 Artist Package is too sweet to sell so I"ll keep that one unless the lack of interest comes stronger.

That's the tough part because I never sell, I just buy. There are a few artist packages for ebay that are going for 2900 but I'd let mine go for around $2K. I'm open to reasonable offers.

A few pics take with my old Sony cam.
