found a suggestion on another site which suggested that I rip off the seal on the bottom of the box and pull that insert out....and there was the serial number
My suggestion....have your customer service people altered to this issue: how would I have know that I had to rip off the seal on the bottom of the box and pull out that insert

B&H sold me (2/25) photoshop elements 13 along with several other items. The software had no 24 digit product key on the box, sleeve or anywhere else. Now customer service says I am stuck with this software which I can not use because of no product key....because I opened the software box. I could I know that no product key was included with out opening the software box. This is sure a catch 22. In my opinion, B&H has simply taken my money without providing the item which I purchase on 2/25.

I would use an orange filter to bring out more texture in wood; also useful when taking a portrait to emphasize a male face....the more worn look. I also liked it to darken the sky but not the black sky look of a red filter.

would like to have my Pentax WR with me at the beach the other day. Wind was blowing hard and I was afraid to fill my Fuji with sand.

Was Pentax THE camera in the 1970s?

There were a lot of camera companies in the 70's; Nikon and Canon were the big players.....as soon as I could afford one, I went to Nikon. When someone stole my Nikon equipment, I bought Canon. Pentax had a solid reputation in the 70's and Minolta, Konica, Olympus, etc also provided good completion. It was a good point above that Nikon and Canon had the pro's locked up. Look at all the pictures from the Vietnam war era: every photographer was using Nikons. I got into Pentax in the 80s.

I will not jump on the X-T1 because I like my XE-1 and do not want to spend the money at this point (just started my social security life). The X-T1 looks very interesting and should be able to spread the Fuji X brand to a larger audience. definitely a camera that I will want to look at in the future. The dpreview of the X-T1 see it as completion for the bigger players.

Another Beer photo from last Friday: from Anchor Brewing, San Francisco, CA, 5.5% Spiced Ale
I liked it but at nine years old it does get a winey taste

I like throwing my Q in my golf bag and using it for on course shots with friends. But you will have VIP access. You will want to get close shots with background out of focus. You can use various speeds to get club in motion or stopped just before of after impact. Do not use flash at an event. Try various angles from back, side or side front (if possible) of the golfer. Try to get emotion after making big putt (other wise putting is a vary boring shot)

Tuco....you are playing with major league stuff in Double Arrogant Bastard. If you are ever in Dayton Ohio look up Boston's Bistro and Pub. It is the multiple times winner of the most Arrogant pub in the USA for selling the most during the annual contest week
