I thought some of you might find this interesting...

I had a 4th cousin send me a photograph of a person in my family with only "Grandfather Lewis" written as the description. In trying to verify who he was, I found a site that compares two images and returns a degree of confidence whether it's the same person or not.

To test it, I first entered two known photos of the same person, my 3rd great grandfather and a degree of confidence it was the same person came up 77%. Then I compared my 3rd great grandfather's photo with the one of "grandfather Lewis" which returned a confidence of 60% it was the same person.

Next, I compared my 3rd great grandfather's photo with my great grandfather which only had a confidence of 29% and that they weren't the same person. Finally, I compared two photos of my great-grandfather and the confidence they were the same person was 74%.

While not definitive, I think the person comparison site strengthen the possibility that "grandfather Lewis" is indeed my 3rd great grandfather.

Here's a link to the website if you'd like to compare photos from your own family for face verification.

That’s pretty interesting Gene. I’ve been doing a lot of Ancestry stuff lately. Found a few mysteries I can’t solve and I think I tracked my dad’s line all the way back to colonial settlers in the 1600’s in Connecticut. Never be able to prove it for sure I don’t think...

So as I complained a few weeks back about the time it takes the Sony to zoom in on a picture in camera, I decided to swap the memory cards between my 5D4 and A7Rii. I had the gold Lexar 2066x card in the Canon and a silver Lexar 1033x in the Sony. In the Canon, I didn’t notice any difference. You hit zoom, there is still no discernible delay. On the Sony though, I think he time was cut in half or more. So however the processing is set up between the two, the Sony does seem to need a faster card.

Still back and forth in my Canon/Sony battle, but I think they are going to live side by side for a while. :)

Well, the lowly 28-70mm sort of done okay..... I say sort of, because although some images are sharp enough for my liking, I had trouble with focusing. Now, I don't know what blame here...... (Me...? :lol::mrgreen: )

I have "Custom 1" set up for landscape - Av priority, 2 sec timer, 100ISO, matrix metering, etc plus, manual focus...... Now, when I was manual focusing, I was sometimes getting the auto magnification & the bottom 'scale' & other times I wasn't getting anything except red peeking on the full screen. Whether this was something to do with the temperature, I don't know. Yet!! When it wasn't working, I remember spinning the dial & the aperture changed so I guess lens/body communication was there... Strange....

Anyway, even though the morning hike didn't really involve a sunrise as such, I'm happy with some images I got :-) Plus, we went somewhere new 8-)

I wondered if anyone has tried or used Sony teleconverters with EF fit lenses by fitting the adaptor between the converter and the lens. The reason I ask is that I have been looking at getting a 1.4x for my FE100-400 but I also have SIgma EF TC’s which I use with my last remaining EF lens (between the lens and adaptor). As I barely use the EF lens I thought about selling the TC’s to fund the Sony 1.4, but still have the functionality to add it to the Sigma 120-300 Sport if required. I know I would lose AF, but I lose that anyway as the MC11 does support TC’s

Fascinating Gene. Poof loves geneology and also found this of great interest. I'm sure you know the Mormons maintain vast databases of genealogical data.
Now on the images. I love the look of the men in that era. Handsome. Now we know for sure trickle down worked toward you :)

I have placed Sony 1.4/2.0 TCs on the body (a9), then Metabones, then 400DOii. No problem.
Why did I do this? Because I forgot my Canon TCs :(
I've read at FM that some believe that it is best to use Canon TCs with Canon lenses and Sony TCs
with Sony lenses. I didn't see a difference.

Thanks. What amazes me is that when my 3rd great grandfather in this series of photos, David Lewis was born, George Washington was still President. I too enjoy looking at men's styles of earlier times, both in grooming and clothing.

Me handsome? Pfff!

but thanks for the compliment anyway. -? :-)

Sunset was a bust tonight but I liked the double starburst in this shot, one was the sun and the other was the suns reflection

Thanks MM, just what I wanted to know. I’d been keeping in case I went back to Canon for wildlife, however having invested so much in Sony now, I can’t see me going back.
