Have to say that some amazing photos have come by in the past pages! Unfortunately I haven't had a lot of time to reply or do much else, but I am still a big lurker! So watch out, I'm reading everything

Last week I was finally able to finish editing a small movie I shot this spring when I went gliding at Portmoak in Scotland with a lot of university gliding clubs. For me it was the first time flying on a ridge, only having flown thermals before, and I had a blast!

Click here for the movie!

I thought I recognised the Loch with island - I've never been to Port Moak (and didn't recognise the name) but my father-in-law and I had plenty of trout out of Loch Leven when I was younger!

Great video, by the way - what's the square meter in one of the sailplanes?

Reconstructing some LR catalogs



Jay,

any advice on how you are doing this. At the moment I have imported everything into my main LR catalogue and it is a bit messy.

Perhaps too perfect a capture of a crossing shot. I didn't even realize I had it when looking through the pictures in the sorter except for "a plane with a tail at both ends? What the heck?"

Wow, Mark
, I never thought that We would ever see a beam of light stopped. I wont go into the cheetahs, as I am a cat person and anything that shows cheetahs moving like that is worth every second of viewing. Bet it would be fun, to attend one of those lectures at MIT.

Tom


You're right, I should look into that - I work a short walk away.

Mac question: since I use two monitors for my main editing setup and I already own a 30" Apple Cinema Display, is there any reason I would benefit from waiting for the larger of the new iMac offerings? Is the iMac's native screen better or faster than the ACD?

Am I better off buying one with minimum RAM and stuffing it with 3rd party SIMMs? I remember some discussion on the subject, but can't find it.

I loved everything about that video, Jurgen, not least the chance to vicariously experience a winch launch. We don't do enough of that here in the USA: most clubs can't muster the manpower to properly staff a winch operation, and commercial operators won't touch it.

Nice two-handed technique at 100 knots right down on the ridge top, by the way!

Jurgen,
that is a great movie - looks like you had a lot of fun. Were you flying solo?

Nice movie Jurgen. The mid-flight reconfiguration of the panel confused me for a moment! I like the view from the ridge. I've tried to tried to make movies of my flying, but flying high above the mountains isn't nearly as nice to view as flying along the ridge.

Hi Zim,

Don't ever buy Apple Ram. I just configured my new 27" on the Apple site, 32 GB Apple RAM $600 v. the same in Kingston at $264. Re: monitor question. I love my 30" Cinema, but it's five years old and is going to get retired, along with my dual quad MacPro Tower. The display on my iMac at HQ is decidedly better than my 30", and these new ones are supposed to be much better than the current versions.

I'm reconfiguring for all iMacs, with Thunderbolt 20TB Drobo 5D's attached. I have a little more beta testing to do at HQ with the new Drobo, but I think that combo will save me a ton of open/tweak/save time. I'm very pleased so far, but I am not seeing the 25X speeds that are quoted for Thunderbolt over USB 2.0. I'd say the speed is about four times faster + -, which is still a big jump. Don't know what kind of a bump the SSD addition to the 5D would give me, if any.

Glenn & Lady Jo,

Early fog not withstanding, I should be in AUS around 9 am. I'll head to The Texas State Cemetery on 7th Street to scout the site for correct lighting. I have two locations there to shoot, should be a no brainer if they don't face North. You Guys around tomorrow?

Trying to decide whether to upgrade my 300 and 500 to the Series II versions and take the deduction this year. The way our esteemed Washington leadership is moving, there might not be any deductions in 2013. Wish the 200-400/1.4 was "buyable" at this point, don't see that happening until sometime next year though.

I'm a sea, city and lanscape guy really but I passed this old beauty on the grass airstrip just down the road from me and couldn't help but take a few photos over the last few weeks it's been there. Anyone know what it is?
It belongs to the Monarch Air Group but has no make on it, nor on their web page, although they do have a photo of a crew standing on a wing:

There are a few more here;

Thanks for the tips, Jim.

What about the Pegasus RAID solution (with SSD) that Apple is selling? Did you run the numbers on that compared to the Drobo 5D?

Welcome Mike,

That's a Douglas DC-3. It is a great old aircraft with lots of history, and a gigantic hole in the air that you pour copious amounts of cash int, and that's if nothing needs fixing!

That raid array at 18TB is $2999.00, with 6 3TB drives. My 5D was $2100 ($749 for the 5D and $269 per drive) with 5 4TB drives. The Drobo gives you much more flexibility when larger drives arrive as well. After more than a year of beta on three Drobos, I think I trust them and am going to standardize with the 5D. I'll probably get an 8 bay when they offer Thunderbolt connectivity.

Naaaa, scratch the 8 bay, that begins to get crazy pricey. I'll just daisy chain 5D's at $2,100 a pop.
