Sine I am in the rant mode, take a shot, want to review it. Nope can't zoom in using pinch/zoom with my fingers on LCD. Good that I can now move zoomed in picture with my fingers on the LCD. But when you zoom in a shot taken in portrait mode, the shot is only displayed in landscape mode. Am I doing something wrong?

I was all set for $60 cable but then read reviews where people say you still need other stuff to get them work properly. Like tether boost and what not.

I don't have tether boost, whatever that is...I just have one cable...and it works with LR...

I don't know about other people. I have 2 of the 15 foot Tether Tools cables and neither has ever required anything else to work properly.

One is for my Canon 5DsR, the other is a straight USB3-USB3 with an adapter for the Sony. Both are passive cables.

Ok, tether tools then. I would need USB-C to USB-C, maybe that's why it doesn't work for a long cable.

Nice use of light placement so as to separate her from the background with the shadows on the outside of her arms.

Wonderful. Have you still got the Redcat? I am thinking of getting one.

Yes Annie. Truly love it too. It was along for the trip but I need more reach so used the AT-65. I'm planning on taking the Redcat to Utah/Idaho
this coming summer for some targets. It is my favorite scope of all time due to size and weight.

Thanks, forgot to mention there were 4x8 black foamcore v-flats on the sides of her. We were shooting in gray seamless but this dress required white bg so I quickly pulled down white roll behind her. That's why we only got 3/4 body shots.

I spent the day hiking around Rocky Mountain National Park in the snow. It’s a 2 hour drive up to reach the alpine lakes. I arrived at 5:30 AM and was the first to hit the trail. I hiked in the dark with the wind howling with some deep snow. After some shooting at an overlook to catch blue hour, I went to another nearby spot and lost my footing and slipped into the deep snow. One of the legs on my tripod sheared off from the base. No way to fix it without possibly sending it to Gitzo. I managed to do more shooting for the rest of the morning but it was very difficult setting up the tripod. The cold temps and snow made for a long morning but still had a blast and I think I came away with some keepers. I am now looking into a personal artifact rider to my insurance to cover my gear.

Sorry to hear about the tripod accident but better its leg than yours. We're looking forward to your next series of landscapes.

Thanks Gene. Yeah it’s just gear that can be replaced. Better that than our health. Still it stings that my tripod is broke. I got it in 2011 and I have used it to take every landscape and cityscape image since then. Oh I also went through the Sony batteries quickly due to the cold. That really hindered me later in the morning. I want to upgrade my Sony body eventually with the bigger battery type.

So sorry to hear about the accident. At least you're OK. Looking forward to seeing some lovely landscapes. Look after yourself, Alfredo.

Here I go again. I was excited to discover the color negatives for my 1972 Porsche 914 taken at my house in 1974. Here's one of the images.

It's nice to see an old friend again.

EDIT: I've replaced the first edit of my Porsche with a second one that adds my sig to the license plate.

Ah, thanks, MM. I'm dithering between the Redcat and a Canon 300mm f/4 as it's supposed to be stellar for astro (sorry for the puns) and I can use it for other things. I'm not going down the telescope rabbit hole this year in any case but who is to say what the future holds? I will get an astro camera though - probably a converted ASP-C sensor Canon.

Bummer about the leg...I have heard that CF gets brittle in the cold. Gitzo can send you new leg sections, I have done it for my Gitzo.
