Thanks Jo!

This is my week for false starts. I had an 8am shoot, got there and the building wasn't anywhere near ready to shoot. Second such scenario since Monday. Decided that instead of getting all twisted up about it, I'd just go fly the Cub. Took it over to Legend for it's annual and a good factory going over. My friends at Legend are wonderful, they put me in the new Super Legend prototype and I headed back to HQ. The Super is quite an airplane, flies much different than my Legend. It's basically a light Sport Super Cub. The ground roll on mine is petty short, the SL is a helicopter. When you advance the throttle, you had better have all your ducks in a row, because you are in the air. Flaps are fun, but I really like how the Legends handle without them, they get very light on their feet, even with a notch. Three notches allows you to land at speeds that give you absolutely no rudder authority whatsoever, dicey in a taildrager especially. One notch gives you a ground roll of about 25' on departure, which would get you in and out of some pretty short strips.

The factory SL is equipped with a Garmin 696 and a digital engine monitoring system, ground adjustable composite prop, float fittings, and tundra tires. The cocpit is trimmed with carbon fiber, stick push pull tubes are all faired in with carbon fiber, very nice. Legend is working on what will be a beautiful amphibian float design, carbon fiber I believe. The airplane should be certificated in the next couple of weeks, which means that they are probably going to want it back We're going to have them build us at least one, probably two.

I want me some of that 'carbob' fiber in my cockpit. Sounds right homey, sort of halfway between carbon and carob.

What engine, Jim? O-360?

The engine is a Lyc 115 horse. You wouldn't think 15 hp would make that much difference, but it do. The "carbob" fiber is a proprietary design.........

Hope everyone sees this as an "if it's useful to you" heads up rather than advertising, but anyway. FYI, just posted an LNIB D7100 and 18-200 VR2 in the Buy & Sell forum. Only 1075 clicks and the condition to match.

I'll also have a full Nikon 1 kit (V1) for sale as soon as I can get pics of it. I'm happy with the images from the Nikon 1, and even more so from the D7100. It's just that they end up getting very little use in my hands... 1075 clicks in 5 months is absurd. I keep trying to use smaller kit so I'll have it with me more often, but then I just keep picking up the D800 when I leave the house... ugh.

Someday I'll settle this argument with myself.

P.S. "Carbob" makes me think of "Car Bob", as in "Bob the old car guy who moved on to tinkering with airplanes now but kept his old nickname."

it's always a nice thing to give our group first dibbs on whatever is going on the market, nicely done Rodolfo. I don't hold out much hope on you settling that argument with yourself, until there's something small that shoots like the D800. Well, really, how far off can that be?

Interesting tidbit. My Buddy who owns Legend Aircraft is in China this week training staff there. They will be building Legend Cubs for the market in China only and they expect to sell the heck out of them. China owns Lyc/Cont, they own Superior Air Parts, and they can build the exact same aircraft marketed here, for about half the price. They expect to sell a lot of the Super Legends to work in remote areas of the country, the first one delivered will be in an air ambulance configuration..............I guess it beats being drug out behind a Yak (the four legged kind).

I think it's inevitable, really. I very quickly noted that my little Nikon 1 kit outshone my 2007-era D200 in dynamic range, ISO latitude, AF performance, and a few other parameters, never mind being much smaller and lighter. Six years doth a whole lotta difference make!

But yes, I'm aware that when a Nikon 1 or Nikon 4 shoots like my 2011-era D800, likely in 2017, I may end up comparing it to what's then available in DSLR's and choosing the big camera again. Who knows...

By the way, is everyone aware of the new Adobe program to entice photographers into switching to the CC software? The way I understand it, you can get LR, PS, and BH for a $10/month payment, forever (this is not an introductory price), so long as you have PS CS3 or newer, you sign up before 12/17, and you don't let your membership lapse thereafter.

LR and PS for $10/month seems like a very good deal to me...

That is a heck of a deal. I have purchased the whole suite for the past decade, but I've never even opened anything but PS, LR, and Bridge, kind of a waste. Better jump on that 10 buck deal.

CC LR PS for 9.99 ..........

Sure a lot of discussion about this on different forums as to why .... CC evidently not taking off making money for them ....... they say this isn't an intro offer but it's time stamped ...... that says INTRO to me ---

You have to have CS 3 in order to take advantage of it ........

They said they.d never tie LR to something like this ........ but here you have it and will they someday stop sellin' it individually .......

A lot of new programs updated like Corel .. coming out now to compete with PS and pricing may be what makes a lot of folks switch .....

A lot of folks think if they are going to do it .. DO IT .. let everybody who wants in .. no requirements ...... sign up without stipulations - they are leaving a lot of folks / money on the table behind

hmmmmmm .. 120 a year ( for now ) .. year after year .. they'll make some money on this ...... sounds like a gimmick to me though .. something like the
phones .. where those with 3 g or 4 g who are Super Users get throttled back during peak times and the phone company says .. it's in their fine print ........ We will provide you the super highway .. but we didn't say we couldn't change the speed limits from time to time .......... I don't know if it has relevance but I'm just saying the legalize to this stuff we don't read could someday bite cha

There is something to be said for a hard copy and not being chained to another monthly bill in order to edit shots. That is the biggest reasons I haven't updated to the cloud.

They eventually force your hand by not supporting the raw files produced by the next generation cameras. Sooner or later we'll all have to be cloud based if we continue to update our gear.

Got great news from Austin today, I'm credentialed for the USGP in November. I'm a little disappointed that I don't get to test my skills through a myriad of chain link, but I'll just have to readjust. Might have to weaken and get a 200-400 before then, darn that Beckman guy!


Congrats Jim. I've been offered them for the MotoGP race. Due to a controversial policy by Dorna (the governing body of MotoGP) to charge for Credentials issued to online publications I may have to shell out some coin for them unfortunately (less than a grandstand seat still since the publication would be footing most of the bill)...but I think it might just be worth it to get truly front row seats...just have to wait and see what the dates are for the race before I tell the publication if I will attend on their behalf or not.

*EDIT* Gah...caught off guard with the TOPP. Here's an oldie from Alliance 2011

Hi
The present offering from adobe, is not really cloud based, you download the program(s) from the cloud, depending on what programs you select depends on how long the rather large files take to download, poor band width can see this be 2-3 hrs. The program(s) then run off line.
You do need to be on line when the program(s) phones home to the adobe mother ship monthly.
Regards

For now, (and I realize things can change), as long as you have CS5, you can upgrade to a perpetual CS6 license that Adobe says they will continue to support "indefinitely". They claim they will continue to fix bugs, and they will continue updating ACR to open files from new cameras. But you won't get any ACR enhancements, those are reserved for the Cloud folks.

As far as forever being tied to CC in order to open your old files, I am pretty sure Adobe acknowledged that issue in the past few months, and they offered a solution. I just don't remember what it was, but I know they said they wouldn't leave people high and dry if they decided to quit the subscription. I suppose the issue is whether a PSD file created three years from now will still be editable by CS5 if you quit the subscription. I don't know.

Here is a link to the FAQ for the new $10/mo offer.
http://www.adobe.com/products/creativecloud/faq.html Scroll down to the "Photoshop photography program offer". It really does look like the price will be $10/mo forever, as long as you don't cancel. You also have to own at least CS3 to be eligible for the offer in the first place.

I think I'm finally going to make the leap to CC with this deal. It wasn't at all appealing before. (I'm still running CS5).

If you're month-to-month, you can only use your software for 30 days without phoning home. If you have an annual subscription, even though you are being billed monthly, you can go up to 90 days without an internet connection.

Typically, in the UK they're offering CC only to anyone with CS6 for Ł27.34 PCM (about 42 usd) for a one year introductory period - and then it goes up to 73.21 USD pcm _ welcome to Rip-off Britain, where everything costs twice what it does in the rest of the world for half the value!!!

hmmm...I just double checked, since I have a PC and a mac, and it turns out that for that $10 a month I can have it activated on both my PC and my Mac...me thinks I'm going to have to go ahead with that.
