This guy is so right, this is the difference between my KP and my Lumix ZS-100. On Pentax, I use manual setting and need to think before clicking, preparing my shoot.
On my Lumix, it's my camera for the day I dont feel working hard. It's take great photos in my hands or my wife hands and she dont know anything about taking photos.

SmugMUG really dropped the ball with this Flickr maintenance

Not your normal maintenance and they inform it could be longer than expercted. It a move of data center from Yahoo to Amazon.


It is an exciting time at Flickr right now as we approach the final stretch of our migration of Flickr’s data and systems. You may remember that one of the biggest steps we promised in revitalizing Flickr was to bring it increased speed and stability. Part of that process was re-engineering our underlying infrastructure and moving it all from Yahoo’s data centers and onto Amazon Web Services (AWS), where SmugMug’s photos have been kept safe and secure for years.
The process involves hundreds of millions of gigabytes of photos and videos (literally billions of photos) and 100+ million accounts. We knew there would be a few bumps in the road, and one of those unfortunate bumps is the need for some planned downtime while we finish the migration. Luckily though, when this step is complete, we’ll be well on our way to a much faster, much more secure, much more stable Flickr.
The details:

On May 22, 2019, Flickr will be down for planned maintenance for about 12 hours starting at 5pm PDT (that’s 8pm EDT or 12am GMT on May 23).
Your data, photos, videos, and settings will all be perfectly safe during this downtime. Once we are back online, you’ll have access to each and every item just as it was before. Also, all your photo rights will obviously continue to be protected and respected.

Who said this is not a camera for birder. Well for sure this camera is make for bird that can carry this camera around their neck. This camera is so advabced that you can control it with a simple Smart phone. No need for expensive drone and at least if it crash, it's lightweight and will land safely on the ground. But we dont know if this camera is weather resistant when the goose that fly with it land on the water. You should make a test .

Please dont do the Bicycle boring test that DPR do, just attach the camera to the bicycle, way more fun and put a dynamo on your wheel to recharge the battery if it's included.

Funny, some peoples find the KP too small and other want a K-1 the size of a KP. Strange... If the K-1 was the same size of the KP, peaples will complaint and would want to have a K-1 the size of D850 or others FF. What a waste of time . The body is nothing without a lense and who care about 1 cm when the lens measure more than 30 or 50 or 60 cm long. I am lost... but it's fun to read , Don't stop , I am having fun every night. And I have a KP and have fun using it

Help a Brit! Monument Valley, Grand Canyon trip

I just complete a trip in these area, I have 2 camera my KP and a LUmix DSC100, most of the time I have my wide angle.

Grand Canyon is a must but not necessarly the best for photo . Anteloppe canyon , we decide not to go as this is a big tourist trap with bus unloading horde of peoples. Monument valley is OK , better photo from outside of the reserve. If you go inside, dont do the jeep tour a waste of money.

You can do and see my site with ton of photos, in french but most attraction are easy to understand
Voyage Ouest 2018

I do a lot of hiking and was able to visit place were not a lot of peoples go

Here a proposed trip , very easy to do , reserve in advance for Arches, Bryce and Zion.
Google Maps

Start in Phoenix and go north to Sedona and Jerome , old copper mining town,

Région de Sedona, Arizona
Next Grand Canyon South but not is less crowded and higher in altitude but will add a lot of mileage
Stop in Page if you want to see Antilope but on your way, otherwise pass Page and go direct Monument Valley on your way to Moab but stop at Gooseneck SP , who is way better than Horseshoes in Page area where you have 2 marvellous national park Arches and Canyon land and a great SP Dead Horse. But make sure you
Monument Valley, AZ et Gooseneck Point SP, Utah
Parc National Arches et Moab
Then from there take the I70 to go to Bryce but if you want to see one of the most US scenic road instead take the Utah 24 and 12 and you can visit Canyonland NP and if you like something realy better tnan Antilope with no crowd go to Grand Escalante NM. On that highway 12 , you will have to decide were to stop as there so many incredible view.

Parc National Grand Staircase Escalante NP
And then you hit Bryce Canyon and be sure to be their at sunrise
Parc National Bryce Canyon et sa région
Next Zion NP be prepare for the crowd there but enter from the EAST GATE and get out at Sprindale, I am unable to show on the Google map as that road is close in winter.

Ok here the road in summer from Bryce,beautifull ride

La région de Zion

Finally go to Vegas and next Hoover dam and back to Phoenix. I guarantee you, that will be the best trip of your life.
Phoenix et sa région

And finish in Phoenix

When a company decide to delay a product, there always a cost to it. Nobody do it for fun and Ricoh believe the reward is bigger than the cost. Great decision by Ricoh.
