my friend mike and I personally know of 5 people in our area who have recently died of Covid 19. They are getting younger (one in his 30's and one in his 40's - both healthy with no predisposing factors). Three of the 5 were vaccinated.

.Ron, i buy 'St Croix' rods that are made up here in northern Wisconsin. High quality and very strong. When in the area of their factory store, I stop in and buy discounted clearance blemished ones for cheap in their bargain bin.

Two days since my wife received her Moderna Booster shot. She's not been sick in decades. Shortly after the Moderna booster, she developed a temperature and nauscious stomach. My poor wife's been in bed and has not eaten since the shot. No idea when she'll be better.

Like her, I've had the initial 2 Moderna shots. But I chose not to get the booster. I'm glad I did not get the booster jab!

Seems really strange that neither of us had any adverse reaction to the first two shots, but the booster landed my wife in bed. Makes me wonder if the ingredients/formulation of the booster is different than the original Moderna shots we received earlier this year?

I've not been an anti-vaxer, but I am now

I've got a Sony A350 digital camera body. It's 14.2 MP CCD sensor is (I believe) the highest MP sensor in a digital camera that's not medium format! So, all you CCD cult fanatics out there might want to check out the A350 (4 more MP than your beloved K10D bodies (I've got 3 of them).

I only use one lens on my A350 - the bokehlicious Minolta MC Rokkor-PF 58mm F1.4. In fact I've got 2 of these lenses.

Nikon z7 Pentax K-1

To me it's all about lenses! The decision for me boils down to do I prefer lenses that I can put on a K-1 DSLR body or the lenses I can put on a Z7 mirrorless body.

I've owned multiple copies of the K-1 from when it first came out. Now I own Nikon Z6/Z7 bodies. Both the K1 and Z7 have more mega pixels than I need. Both have great ergonomics and image quality. I don't use GPS or Astro and I've found that pixel shift doesn't work for the subjects I shoot - so these wiz-bang K-1 features have no appeal to me.

The reason I've sold all my K-1's and am now all in with the Nikon Z bodies is that the Z's have the shortest flange focal distance (16mm) of any full frame body! That's shorter than even the Sony E and Canon R bodies. Such a short FFD enables me to easily adapt my bokehlicious Leica M, Voigtlander M, and LTM/L39 lenses (and dozens of others) to the Z bodies. One can not adapt these outstanding lenses to the K-1 with it's much longer 45.46mm FFD.

So, for those of you like me who primarily use premium, manual-focus adapted lenses with FFD's of less than 45mm, it's a no brainer - go with the Nikon Z full frame bodies.

I did most of my extensive travel to exodic locations back in the film days. I look back at the grainy, unsharp, low dynamic range 35mm and 120 negatives/slides and wonder - "how much better would these images have been had I used a a modern, high resolution, terrific dynamic range, digital camera with pixel shift, IBIS, and focus stacking? " Anyone have a time machine???

One of the most important camera characteristics to me is how it fits in the hand.

For those of you who have already received your new K3iii ; I'd love to hear what you think of the grip and overall feel in the hand (especially with various sizes of lenses), and how it's feel compares with K-3/K-3ii/KP.


Thank you...

With many consumer products, trying to get something repaired is often more expense and trouble than it's worth. For example, my old washing machine broke, and it made more sense to buy a new one rather than hire a repair person to visit my home and repair the broken machine.

These days, I never buy the latest and greatest camera bodies. Rather I buy 2 or 3 used bodies that are 2, 3 or 4 generations old for the same price (or less) than the price of just one of the latest/greatest/flagship models. Frankly, it's been years since a new body came out with a must-have/wiz-bang feature (e.g. K3ii's pixel shift) that caused me to purchase a brand new model. With this approach, if one of my 2nd, 3rd, or 4th generation bodies dies, I just throw the broken body into my "bone yard" (sometimes use these for my feeble attempts at self-repair) and then just use one of my other older bodies - without the aggravation/delay/expense of sending the broken body in for repairs.

Unless you are a pro who needs to be on the bleeding edge of photo tech, this approach just might work for you too.

I've purchased similar ones for my Fuji and Nikon bodies and made them like new again...

If I still owned a full frame Pentax, I'd buy one of these just for cheap insurance.

NFTs, the way of the future?

I own Bitcoin. I believe it's prices are manipulated and rigged. For example, last Saturday night, at around 10:30pm the Bitcoin price suddenly dropped about $8,000 USD, and then in short order went back up. Free and fair markets don't act like that!

I suspect NFTs are the same. Initially there were some widely reported NFT sales for incredible prices. I suspect it was all a show to drum up interest. Everyone I know who have entered into the NFT market has lost money. Who do you know (other than those early adopters we all read about) who has actually made money making and selling NFTs?
