That Derby thing is a bummer, and a slippery slope.

Anyone subscribe to Scott Kelby's "Light It!" iPad app? I found it a little slow to download, but it's got Kelby quality all over it. The imagery just explodes off the screen and the tips are wonderful. $19 a year, well worth it!

Here's a good lesson for us. As a COTA Media enrollee, I got a notification today that the MotoGP was a huge success. Then I went to the website and scrolled through a couple of dozen images, most of which didn't hold a candle to what you folks shot there. One of the major contributors didn't even bother to clone out several boulders residing on his sensor for the entire series. I guess the lesson is MA2A shooters can do better through two chain link fences from the "cheap" seats, than the people granted credentials. Isn't that the way the

I'm game for that. I've seen similar boulders within various "official" nasa shots too. Makes ya wonder sometimes.

ETA: Especially in light of recent discussion about just "shooting at COTA from the cheap seats"


Based on what we saw there, they would have a lot of people in none too good a mood about that. Austin is a rather artist driven town, so to put a ban in place like that here would be a tall order. Though anything is possible I guess........

Nice capture Brian! Actually, I don't get banning pro cameras at any venue. What is the point? COTA is a good example, what will any of us do with our shots, besides share them with each other, and enjoy them ourselves? Steven said it several times, what could anyone do with shots branded with 32 corporate stickers and logos anyway?

The flip side of this argument is, by the way, what single bit of technology caught the creeps in Boston in short order?...................ummm, cameras! The more the merrier should be the order of the day, not the reverse.

It's truly THE most ironic thing I've run into with photography...

Pro: Understands licensing, rights, trademarks, etc and knows what constitutes commercial use and therefore is verboten.

Amateur: Same (or higher) megapixels, does not understand licensing, rights, etc and wouldn't hesitate to sell an image or give a file away to anyone who asks.

So let's ban the Pro.

Really? REALLY!?

Thank, yeah that area was definitely calamity corner for a bit, missed one crash but got captures on 3 others, and an almost one. I think the banning of pro gear is more rooted in ego taking over, not wanting to have "competition". As you say, makes no sense with all the branding etc.

Exactly! Besides, if you are putting on an event of any type, wouldn't you want the best exposure you could get? Kind of the GoPro marketing strategy, people post their work everywhere, and it sells GoPro's. How many people see our work all over here and think, "Man, I'm going to the next event at COTA!" ? Makes no sense at all to me, but then fewer and fewer things make sense to me these days.

What a Cutie Jon! I love capturing moments like that. They really become valuable as the years fly by.

No TOPP for this one. Don't want to distract from the beautiful moment Jon captured.

Ordered my lens for the Central TX Airshow today. Last year I used the 100-400, this year I will try the 400 5.6. I was reading Roger's (Lens Rentals) comments for the two lenses. He said you get the 100-400, then, discover every shot is at 400mm. Well, that really wasn't 100% true last year, but I will have the 70-200 to back it up. I left it home last year because I had the 100-400. Anyway, why not try something different.

That'll be an interesting experiment Wrei. I'm sure that you will like that lens. I loaned my 100-400 to a friend/client for AFW last year and am getting in back in the next few days. I haven't missed it, which makes me wonder if I really need it. That said, I'll probably buy the series II of that lens if Canon ever decides to release it.

The more I think about it, the less interest I have in the 200-400................once again, if they ever release it. Ten grand for a 200-400 doesn't tempt me much.

I filled out my social security paperwork online yesterday; then I called the owners at work to tell them that my part time status would be even less part time. My goal to decrease my income tax by 50% has been quite successful. It's amazing how much richer we are now. (Richness does not always have anything to do with money!)

Time to put the computer down for another stimulating conversation with my bride of 40 years! Life is good, thank you God!

Wrei,

I think in the next few days I will be placing an order with Lens rental for the 100-400, also considered the 400 f5.6 but want the zoom for flexibility. We are going to Yellowstone/Tetons the last week of May, 1st Week of June and I'm thinking that would be the lens to marry to the 7D for the 2 week vacation. I'll have the 24-70 f2.8 on the 6D, with a 16-35 for widescapes.

Dan

PS - Congrads on the work status change. Sounds like a good work life balance move.
