I had a 6:30 wrap up of yesterday's assignment this morning. I hate getting up, but you have to love being able to head to the hangar at 8:30. Actually, I had one stop, the Social Security Administration, to sign up for mandatory Medicare. They were actually pretty efficient for a government operation. I only had to wait an hour, but I was entertained by a guy sitting next to me talking about going to formula 1 events around the world, and his new Corvette………uh, he was there applying for food stamp assistance, and the beat goes on.

Good news is my health insurance premium goes from a grand a month to $104.31 in April, plus a Blue Cross supplemental of a couple of hundred dollars. Bad news is, most of our Docs don't want to have anything to do with you if you're enrolled in Medicare. Glad we're healthy.

Jay, if it's the one I sold you it's a Singh-Ray. They don't exhibit the X that some of the lesser variable NDs do. That's why they're so f-ing expensive! Best out there! Just be glad you didn't have to buy the 82mm!




Oops.... Yeah, like I said Singh-Ray...

Well, my Heliopan was no bargain as it was somewhere around the same price as the Singh Ray, if I remember correctly. I had read that Singh Rays can exhibit the same effect, I guess it depends in part on the shooting conditions.

Oops! Nikon D4s has a memory slot for QXD and CF cards, but it's just been announced that the QXD cards are on their way out. Someone isn't talking to someone.

Landing or doing a burnout dragster style....... Either way, nicely captured.

Went looking for the specs on the D4s but couldn't find them on Nikon's site yet, nor on B&H

Thanks Jim, It'll be interesting to see which of the new cards makes it as a standard, QXD or CFAST, or neither, with camera manufacturers settling on SD card format instead, for the reasons given in that article. It'll be interesting to see how right the rumor specs become.

Then again, there's this: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1265138/4#12053746

Wonder why the redesign?

Finely made it out this year to do some shooting. Went up to Phoenix and get some Painted Aluminum tubes at sunset.

Something is up if B&H is pulling them from the shelf. If this proves to be true, Nikon has some extensive redesign to do. I can't imagine they would release a camera that utilizes a waning memory card design.

I was asked to be part of a small photographic team to cover a big event in LA honoring Bob Hoover next month. Thought that I had my schedule organized perfectly and was looking forward to the assignment. I should have known better, things started unravelling right after the turn of the year. I have a gig for His Highness Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, Prime Minister of Kuwait that fell right in the middle of the Hoover Gala. Much as I dislike missing that event, the math was pretty simple.

Looked on nikonrumors page and it shows the card door and you can see that the door has be changed. The new one is rounder wile the old door comes out and drops off flat on the outside. Just wish we could open that door.

I did some poking around on my break, and it seems that there's a new XQD card, the S series, maybe that's why Lexar is discontinued at the moment.

http://www.sony.net/Products/memorycard/en_us/xqd/

Then again, those Sony memory sticks were pretty much confined to Sony products. Thankfully I just have to worry about CF and SD here. Webesee what happens next.

Now back to the books I go. so I can keep that GPA up.
