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:

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.


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.

Great Jo! Want me to call you in the morning? If everything faces east or south, I can knock it out at one sitting. If I run into an east/south, west/ssw combo, then I'll have to go back in the afternoon and shoot as well. Either way, should offer plenty of playtime.

Sure Jim, call me whenever. I can get there in about 40-50 minutes, depending on traffic.

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.

Mark


Cheers Mark,

I have my LR set up such that each year is a different catalog* so in this case it was simply making a new "Aviation 2009" catalog and importing the images from the folder where they live.

(*In each yearly catalog, I create a new folder for each location where I shoot (airport or event) and then have sub folders by date under each location)

The key issue under all of this is to have your ducks in a row as it relates to your file structure. Remember that LR only catalogs files as they exist on your machine at the time they're imported. You can cut/copy/paste all day long in Explorer BEFORE you import anything. However, once files are imported, I strongly urge you to only move images from within LR else you run the risk of having LR lose a location which then means a lot of folder searching and synchronizing from inside LR which is a pain in the posterior.

Boats are worse than airplanes! I know: hard to believe. But trust me, I've seen my sister's 1938 wooden ketch and watched in awe as it spent three years in the shed being restored to better-than-new. That ain't cheap.

No aircraft today; a nice sunny Texas day for wandering around a different kind of history.

This is pushed like crazy in PS and Silver Efex. Kind of looks like a pencil sketch.

Hi guys,

I'm blown away by the images on this thread!

I was wondering if y'all could confirm something for me. My father went in with some friends right after WW2 and bought his plane. My dad was the only one who could fly, so the he would sit in the pilots seat and the other two would sit up front. They bought it on the East coast and flew to California landing in fields at night to rest. My dad was full of stories about this adventure!

My question for you is...to the best of recollection, my dad (long since gone) told me it was a 1932 Waco. Can any of you confirm this?

Thanks for any help.
