The Lexar 32GB/1000x card corruption I experienced in October kind of spooked me. I've had cards go south, fortunately not in catastrophic situations, but that one could have been well into catastrophic territory. I know this wouldn't preclude a failure, but I'm thinking about a different strategy. Don't you think the majority of card failures are caused by a speck of something getting in one of the many pin slots, or something not seating just so during one of the zillions of trips in and out of the camera/card reader. A 32 GB card offers well over 1,0000 images on

....... Possible - but you will / should exercise the card by pulling it out and re inserting it to clean the pins every month or so to knock off the corrosion that will build up between the pins and their socket. It's not unusual to find high pwr cord resistance when testing patient care medical devices ( defibs, ekg, vital sign monitors, anesthesia machines, surgery tables, etc .. ) that have removable pwr cords. To * fix * this we simply remove and plug the cord back into the unit 2, 3 times and the unit then passes easily within range. Breaks that corrosion / metal against metal self cleans itself of the corrosion one can't see, which builds up between the ground pin and it's socket.

Mark, thanks for the idea. Who makes the best unit for that application. Wonderful image BTW!!

Thanks Curtis! I would never have thought of that. I guess that's still better than the 20 or so times they normally come out of the camera, into the card reader, and back into the camera. Maybe I'm being paranoid and should just keep doing it the way I always have.

Welcome back Chris! Glad to see you haven't lost your touch!!

I did a little project for Sheila last Tuesday. She has volunteered at a nursing home for over 25 years, and she asked me if I'd take portraits of the residents so their families could have current images of them. Kind of a tough assignment from the standpoint that I had no idea what each subject was capable of, as far as cooperation. Most of the 26 people were in walkers or wheel chairs, so that added to my constraints, but all in all it went fine. One of the gentleman asked me what else I shot, I went down the list. When I hit aviation his eyes lit up, "I was a flight engineer on a B24 Liberator in WWII" he proceeded to tell me. Well. we're going to take a little trip one day soon and see if we can't get him back in the cockpit of a 24. Another man I photographed fought with Patton in all his major campaigns. I was in the presence of hero's and didn't even know it.

A number of the people I photographed were suffering from Alzheimer's, varying forms of dementia, and or just plain growing old. The project got me thinking about going back and shooting available light, high iso images. These images were nicely lit and composed portraits for another purpose, but I felt a tug to go back and capture imagery that documents aging and it's components. We'll see.

This little lady didn't know who she was, much less who I was. She is well into the progression of Alzheimer's. She wanted her portrait taken though. She had difficulty making eye contact with me, it would happen for a split second, just a glance, and she'd look away. In spite of her condition, there was life in her eyes, and I wanted to capture it, before it faded.

There's something in this for me to do, I felt it more and more as I shot away. Once again, the principle proves true, if you give of yourself, you get back more than you give.

BTW, Elinchrom's, one key, one fill. 60" Octa key, 24" Chimera strip fill. In the case of this subject, the fill actually became the key and vice versa. I switched them up because I wanted to achieve more dramatic lighting to accentuate her skin tones and texture, and to capture her personality.

Shot on the 1D X, 70-200/2.8 II at 130mm/5.6, iso 200.................and that's the rest of the story as Paul Harvey would say.
