K-7 Appreciation - The Forefather Forgotten

It really goes to show, technology can never be a replacement for a properly composed/exposed/conceptualised shot. K20D, K-7, K-1....are only as good as the person releasing the shutter.

Why I will buy a K-3 III

I think that is the crux of the matter; grabbing on to new technology at some point and embracing it. There will always be something better and more expensive. For me, my K-7 was still shooting great pictures. I mean if you pixel peep then yes, at higher ISO values the image is more grainy that the newer cameras. Would that stop me from submitting one of the K-7 shots to a contest or printing it to be framed? Nope. That said, a great deal came along on a K-3ii and I really wanted to jump on board with a newer sensor. Done! So now I have a much better sensor that my K-7 for a really good price. For me, that was a win-win. One day, when my K-3ii is far outpaced my technology, well then it will time for me to make decisions again. Would I take a K-1 if someone threw it at me? Of course I would. :-) But for now, I am a happy hack behind a viewfinder.

All that said, I am still very pumped to see the list of stuff on the next APS-C flagship... :)

Gotta love a fisheye. :-)

I took that ferry once so I cannot really remember the scenery. The Tsawwassen to Victoria ferry ride is beautiful as it winds it's way through many an island. The horseshoe bay to Nanaimo ride; not so much.

Good morning all. Penultimate Monday of the month and that was too short a weekend. For most folks (except Federal employees of which I am one) today is family day here in Ontario and a day off. I am in the office and making the best of it. Have a fantastic day or evening or whatever wherever you are. Did I mention I got that $100 snowblower working? It had a 1/4 cup of water in the gas-tank. So now it is all ready for the 10cm they are forecasting for Thursday. Bring it on!!

The patch is a great reminder how dangerous those missions could be. Dad and his crew were lucky, I don't think in all his missions anyone was ever injured.

And as you are most likely quite aware, many have been converted to turbo making them an even better money maker, quieter, more powerful and fuel efficient

Dad was working for the Ministry of Transport (DOT back then and Transport Canada now) at the time the 747 first came along. Boeing brought one to Dorval Airport and took a bunch of Montreal government officials and business leaders for a "maiden flight". I think I still have the plaque they gave him around somewhere.

We don't watch a lot of TV...mainly a "serious show" later in the evening with tea...and then a funny show or two just before bed so we get away with unlimited bandwidth and the missus likes to have "anything" playing in the background while doing chores. We don't have a landline and only Netflix for TV (and youtube). Our service provider is Teksavvy (a smaller reseller) and for 10MB up and 1MB down plus Netflix plus two mobiles no data we pay $45 + $12 + $50 = grand total $107 a month for all....

Bob, that bar size issue, what is on that bar? Can you post a picture of it or tell us what is on the bar?

That happened two years ago with our TV provider....they bumped up the monthly rate without notifying us so we cancelled. Boy oh boy did that ever create an uproar. That was two years ago and we are quite content with Netflix at a 10th the cost....but we are not sports fans.

Good morning all; snowing here again. Bought an old Bolens 1026 snowblower a couple days ago for $100. No spark so I removed the electronic ignition yesterday and verified it to be faulty. $50 in amazon gets me a new one and a new carb. $150 for a snowblower built like a tank...not bad.
