Oh Glenn, I'm sorry. There's few worse feelings than what you are experiencing right now. We've said it time and again here, there are more gremlins lurking out there than one can keep track of.

Glenn, so sorry the Gremlins got into the plan execution. I've known many lesser men who would never admit that such a thing could happen to them and in doing so, prevent the peer group from learning from the experience. So chin up ! Oh, and can you quit the head and desk thing please? Your going to need the desk in one piece.

Long weekend on my feet, but there are some debts that can never be repaid and this was one of them. An honor and a privilege. This shot kind of sums it up..................

I feel your pain Glenn. I think the only people with a reasonable reason to use jpg are people doing on-site sales.

Many prayers have been answered in Arizona as our monsoon season ends with some much needed rain. The light show that was on display as the storm cleared and evening approached was spectacular. Only God could create this glorious art in the sky. A Southwest Airlines 737 taxies to the gate as sunset bathes the fuselage with a new color scheme

Sawbones still wearing it's oil after the trip in from Minnesota, Saturday, the weekend before the races.

Again, from Saturday before the races, the thrash has begun. One radiator out, one that needs to go in.

Rare Bear's engine is a work of art. Notice the new exhaust this year. Hearing from old team members they are not happy with the Ezell work. I never noticed, but I guess the old system was a tried and true system that evolved over many years. To say that there is a lot of bitterness between the old crew and the Lewis/Ezell crew would be a huge understatement. Last time it won? 2007 with the OLD crew.

Well Glenn, if you keep doing this long enough, years pass and you forget the lesson and get to repeat it

How about shooting an event and being perplexed at the inconsistency of on camera flash exposures, so you adjust a bazillion manual camera settings to bring each exposure into line. Then toward the end you notice that somehow the flash unit got bumped off of TTL...............................

No one will ever know of our mistakes, except for the family here, but I find it very difficult to forgive myself when they are made.

Got home late last night after the AVG Gala, downloaded and backed everything up, then blasted off at o dark thirty for a dawn shot an hour south of Dallas this morning. More of the same for the next five days.

Glenn, if we get together this week, I'll help you with your sensor cleaning project. We will not change the file size though.

Had dinner with some friends last night, we're on for the T38/T33 shoot Thursday late afternoon/evening. That's going to change HQ Thursday a little, for us anyway.

Jim, check out that video. I saw several 5D Mk II's being used for this shoot of our jets, including any air to air that you see, was a guy in the back of the T-33 with one.

I've also heard of several big time production companies switching to DSLR's. Someone else here might remember, but I even think there was a major network TV episode shot entirely with them. I could be remembering wrong though. Like you said, they shoot beautiful video and they do it for half the cost.

It was the last episode in one of the earlier series of "House"

A number of movies, Lone Survivor for one, have utilized DSLR video technology. The stuff is good, there's no doubt, and getting better by the day.
