It’s really popular on Instagram and other hashtag based social media to identify location by airport code.

Without being too cheeky, I’d bet those who didn’t get the reference are Gen Xers or Boomers +

:-D

I must be old - I generally refer to location by their phone area code... (still allocate I/P addresses by this method)


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter purchased for:

Lots of folks in the Orlando area (including the TV and radio media) are constantly refering to the airport there as "OIA", as in Orlando International Airport. Yet the airport at Orlando is MCO. Go figure.

So, trivia question out there . . . why is this huge international airport in Orlando have the airport code MCO? Anyone?

No great pic, but a very welcome sight in this neck of the woods...

Wow, to think you took that picture with the same camera I have. Mine never does that, probably a bad copy ;-)a Seriously, very nice.

I'm photographing the Chinese New Year parade this weekend, my second year in a row as the official photographer for the event. Last year I had the EOS R + EF 24-70, and my 1DX2 + 70-200... this year = no 1DX2, so it'll be all EOS R w/ RF 24-70 and RF 70-200. Really looking forward to it!

On Monday, I have an RF 50 on loan from CPS. I'm a little scared that I'll like it too much...

I think I'm going to retire back-button focus, and have everything back on the shutter button. I tried it the other day and my muscle memory really complained.

Finally... Fv shooting mode. I'm exploring this mode, but can't see how it's faster than assigning shutter and aperture to the front and back dials, with EC (using Auto ISO) on the control ring. What am I missing?

It's not really about that. You can still put what you want where you want it. It's more about auto-ing the things you don't want to mess with and being able to quickly return any or all to auto if you need to. It gives total manual freedom with complete fail-safe for anything you forget or don't want to mess with.

I suppose if you're only ever going to use Auto ISO then you're not really missing anything that Fv offers.

And I could easily argue the point, why not use the fail-safe if it's there? I could easily pit M against Fv and make a solid case that M is totally unnecessary on a camera equipped with Fv and essentially makes M obsolete on such a camera. It's a game changer, not unlike P mode was on my AE-1 in 1979. It's fine if someone doesn't use it, but to dismiss it as insignificant would be a mistake for most non-pro camera users (And I would argue even working professionals but I'm making a point.).
