    Ha! Not shooting much, and staying out of photo forums. Good for the wallet. ;)

    SSD for LR catalog

    I moved my catalog and previews to a spare SSD about a year ago, and it did feel a bit faster. Nothing to write home about, but if you have the disk, why not? My OS and applications are on a separate SSD, and the photos themselves on a traditional HDD.

    [EXPIRED] Nikon 80-200/2.8 AF-S, Kenko 1.4x, LowePro S&F case and belt

    Nikon 80-200/2.8 AF-S, $950 This gorgeous hunk of glass is getting no use, and it deserves better. I am the original owner. Focus motor replaced in 2012, so it's all but new. Glass clean, a few marks on hood. Slight wear on mount—shows more in photo than reality. Includes original Nikon CC-73...

    This is "Floater" (Yes, another cat D800E image)

    Poor little thing! Looks like he just opened his eyes—and got traumatized forever. But it looks like he's in good hands.

    San Diego Osprey

    Craig, sorry about your kitties! At least us humans understand the shots. And we love Peet's out here. My brother once had a cat who liked coffee grounds, but that's another story... I used to shoot indoor sports, hence the f/2. Michael, I thought it might be the same birds. We also see...

    San Diego Osprey

    I like #2. What park? I often see an osprey hanging out on a light post on the Sunset Cliffs bridge (a pair last time), and wonder if it's the same one. P.S. Love your sig; we have a psycho kitty who's diabetic (2 shots a day).

    Nikon Manual Focus Glass - Part I

    Hey Robert! I lived in Vista for 14 years, and North County ain't bad. I'll be sure to watch out for the Real World folk. No doubt they'll run from my scary old lenses (and even scarier old cars). Here are some LJ shots from the previously-uploaded pile. Haven't posted here in ages...

    SoCal recommendations

    Hi Ken, Oceanside has a nice, wide beach and lots of surfers. Should make for a good morning shoot combined with good people watching ... sun's even coming out a bit finally! I'd also try Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside, a bit inland on highway 76. Go further inland and a little north on...

    Best time of year for a road trip in France?

    Thanks to all for the replies, and sorry for my delay.:redface: j.luc—Thanks! Good to hear from a local. Larry—May has long been our favorite; best combo of good weather, late light, few crowds. Plus we escape the gray skies here! (Really.) But we can't go in May next year. Thymen—good...

    Best time of year for a road trip in France?

    We are planning a 3-week road trip around France next year, focused on countryside and villages and small cities as much as we can. We plan to start out toward Alsace and then around to Burgundy > Provence > Southwest > Brittany > Normandy. Husband was all set to book this for our ideal...

    CS3 on new macbook pro? UPDATE

    I'd go with PS Elements, as Adobe won't let you activate the same license cross-platform. :mad: You could run CS3 (or 5) in Parallels or VMWare Fusion, but I think the performance hit would be too much. Elements will do the quick and dirty jobs just fine, with raw conversion, Bridge, etc.

    Best lens for indoor sports:gymnastics

    Hi Skyrfox, I shot the 1993 world championships in the NIA. If the setup is similar and you have a credential, access is quite good. Better than your average big event. Good seats in the audience are quite close. Lots of light too; it was a rare treat then to shoot action in color. Light was...

    My MacMini not recognizing my RAW files - help please . . .

    Download the latest DNG converter from Adobe. Convert, then load the DNGs into Lightroom. I have an older (CS3) version of Photoshop that works just fine this way.

    Which editing cataloguing & editing software combinations?

    Expression Media, Photo Mechanic, Capture NX2 and Photoshop CS3 for me, going way back. Mostly PM and NX these days. PS for heavy retouching, etc. iView, an excellent cataloguing program going back to the '90s, was bought by Microsoft in 2006, renamed Expression Media, and updated once...

    Does Canon have an equivalent to NX2?

    I'm with Tosh on the WB controls in DPP. Otherwise I much prefer NX—DPP does not write the changes to the file's preview, so you have to save an extra TIFF or JPEG if you want a correct preview in your catalog/viewer software (PhotoMechanic/Expression Media for me, but same goes for Lightroom...

    "HandBrake" ?

    Back to the codecs thing, Perian covers most anything else you'd need. Windows XP out of the box doesn't play many current formats either; Win 7 is more up to date. There's a nice package of codecs for that, too (Google away).

    Anyone using ViewNX on a Mac?

    All good on my MacBook Pro running 10.6.2. but the display still doesn't reflect the profile of the second monitor. (Yes, same with 10.5 and the previous ViewNX, whatever was current in September.) I moved the thumbs to monitor #2 (the MBP) and the big pic to my main display. Looks good now.

    So what's your museum lens???

    Excellent. Gotta get something older than I am (mid-60s) someday! Love me some 28/2 on DX, but I'm afraid the Sigma 30/1.4 has overtaken it for this situation (especially with a D40). Not far from a 50 on FX. They didn't call it standard for nuthin'! Memory, an album of favorite art of a...
