I’m on an old version of the iPhone … well, old version as far as technology is concerned, iPhone 6. I know! Prehistoric. During my time in Guatemala, I took about 1/4 of the pictures with the iPhone. As I look through them, and others that I’ve taken with that phone, I’m impressed. They seem to be very sharp, have good color, and all that I can ask for. The featured image, a picture of the falls in Falls Park…

The other day, I mentioned a particular camera road that I’d been down. Then, I discovered that, lo and behold, there was another road that I’d been down, too – the 1″ sensor road. Anyone remember the Nikon 1 V1? That was Nikon’s early 1″ sensor camera. The current version is the V3. I wrote about it here. I rented one, gave it a whirl, and decided that, though I liked the image quality, it just wasn’t pocket-sized enough and…

I used to sell all of my used camera equipment on eBay; however, as fleaBay evolved, they became more and more buyer-centric, almost to the point where the seller had no protection from unscrupulous buyers. You’d sell, then in order to get your money, you had to have proof of delivery and then positive feedback from the buyer. If the buyer did not provide any feedback, you’d have to wait 10 days or so to get your money. Should the…

That’s a good question. Where in the world is Paul? Well, some of you know, as I’ve mentioned it before. The Red Oxx is packed. The Kindle has a couple of new books, one by an author that I’ve never read before, Andy Weir. Tony cannot believe that all that I am taking with me is a camera bag and a carry-on. He cannot conceive how one can survive with clothes in a carry-on for two weeks, but then he…

It’s usually some months down the line when I realize that I didn’t change the time on my digital cameras and, really it’s not big deal especially since “Standard” time is so short, lasting a scant few months. The only time it kind of matters is if two cameras have different times and I use both of them on the same day. It makes the capture time sorting kind of strange. 🙂 I saw the light in this picture in…

As I was looking through a few of the photos that I took while I was in Ohio, recently, I came upon this one. I thought about how simple and complicated cameras have become. In one manner, they can be point-and-shoot. In another way, they have have menu systems that are so complex as to enable one to become quite lost. I remember this young lady wanted to take a photo of a couple of people that I assume were…
