If you want the camera to control the aperture, you put the aperture ring on the lens into the 'A' position.

I can count the number of times I've used the pop-up flash on my K-3, K-7, and *istD on zero hands.

I find the HDR portion of Photo Merge to be underwhelming. I'll likely stick to Photomatix for this part. The Pano portion seems adequate to me. I had been using Photoshop for this, so I guess it's not surprising that the results are pretty much the same.

K-3 now in Camera Finder in Flickr

The one that is showing up in the "Interesting K-3 Photos" section is this one:

It has "Pentax K-3" in the camera and EXIF info. I'm pretty sure that it used to include the "RICOH" information, but now doesn't. Another of my photos (just from a small perusal of my photostream) still has the RICOH information.

So maybe they are going through the photos and updating what they display in the camera information (and how they interpret the EXIF data).

Thanks for this. I'll be spending a couple of days in Waterton next summer, and this time I'm hoping to actually get some good shots. :-)

Yep, if you continue on the road past the turnoff to Dead Horse Point, you'll enter Canyonlands NP. This spot is to the southwest of Dead Horse Point.

I also have some shots of Dead Horse Point from last Friday morning, but there weren't really any clouds at sunrise to add to the skies.

Lots of images still to process from my week in Moab.

Geotagged information
Posted By pesterle

When you are seeing the town, province, country, etc. in the metadata in Lightroom, and that information is greyed out, that is derived information that Lightroom has calculated by reverse geocoding the GPS data.

I've noticed that if I edit a sublocation for geocoded data, the derived information disappears. I'm not exactly sure how to get the derived data to be written to the metadata.

This is what I was going to say. This would also explain why the number of shots would decrease by 15 after each exposure.

Yeah, there's a 100-300 lens out there. I have one that I got probably about 15 years ago, and actually had forgotten about it until a month or two ago.

Isn't the lunar eclipse tomorrow morning, and not this morning? So you may still be able to get it.

I've scored a zero on this test before (taken on my macbook pro), but doing so again using a crappy company-issued HP laptop with even worse company-issued Dell monitors, I scored a 4.

Most of my landscapes are done with the Sigma 18-250 lens (not the macro--the previous version), with a few more done with the Sigma 10-20.
