Some rumored good news, hope it's accurate!

https://www.canonrumors.com/the-canon-eos-r5-mark-ii-is-closer-to-a-reality-than-canons-claims/

Canon, like Apple, doesn't tell it's reps much in the way of what is coming down the pike, they are basically pretty clueless. I know of one Canon rep who got the opportunity to "seek greener pastures" after a slip on the 1D III release, so they are serious about holding new product released close to the vest.

Really put the R5C to work this week shooting 4K video. I love these scenarios where I can wring out a camera in a no pressure situation. Shot hours of 4K from the back of the Malibu Wakeboard platform. Oddly, I found very little difference in stability between the R5 with IBIS and the R5C with a stabilized lens. Most of what I shot wakeboarding was captured with the RF 15-35 2.8 IS.

Malibu showed us a battery powered version of that boat, very cool, but absurdly expensive ($300K). Aside from the stratospheric pricing, completely impractical. Battery life was 2-4 hours to deletion and then a long recharge period. The company that figures out this battery bottle neck is going to make themselves a ton of money because it's crippling everything.

Some "odd knowledge" for the techies in our group. I'm backing up my files. still/4K video to my RAID Arrays. The source is a SanDisk SSD and the targets are 22TB Western Digital hard drives. Total size of the folder is just under 700GB and the upload time is 12 minutes and change. Pretty fast, I can remember the old day when a folder like that took hours to transfer.


Heh brother! Glad you had a rather smooth trip in the air.
I do no video BUT I do use the SanDisk arrays you referred me 2. I have 2 now and they work fine.

I do have a question for you or any member here......Is there a way to (via software, array settings?) to have those photos resident in the computer that I have editied backed up automatically rather than manually drag n drop into the array? I sometimes forget. I use a PC.

Hope all is well. We are in a drought and everything is burned up!
The farmers plantings are burned up!

Hope my buddy is enjoying the summer!

It's coming. Toyota hydrogen powered engine. Still has a battery, but you just refill the hydrogen tank for the engine, which recharges the battery...unless I am missing something.

Ray, I think you are missing something...

There are 2 (or possibly more) ways to power a vehicle with Hydrogen.

Method 1, a Hydrogen fuel cell. Fuel cells have been around for a long time, NASA powers some space hardware with fuel cells. Basically the fuel cell breaks down the Hydrogen to produce electricity which is used to charge the battery pack that moves the vehicle. Basically an electric vehicle that you drive to the Hydrogen filling station and fill up, unlike waiting extended periods for a charger to charge the battery pack. Note: Toyota has been selling a fuel cell car (Toyota Mirai) in limited numbers, and in a very limited geographical area, for a few years now. The limited numbers and limited area is due to the fact that there are currently 60 filling stations in all of California, and half of those are in Los Angeles alone.

https://www.energy.ca.gov/data-reports/energy-almanac/zero-emission-vehicle-and-infrastructure-statistics/hydrogen-refueling

As more Hydrogen filling stations are built Hydrogen powered vehicles (both types) become more viable.

Method 2, a Hydrogen powered engine. This is what Toyota is currently developing. Basically an internal combustion engine designed to burn Hydrogen instead of gasoline. Operates the same as a gasoline/diesel engine. It converts a fuel into horsepower and noise. The basic difference is that the Hydrogen engine produces less horsepower (at least currently) and The Hydrogen engines exhaust isn't called pollution, it's called water.

EDIT: sorry I was incorrect, the Hydrogen fuel cells exhaust is water vapor, The Hydrogen engine in addition to the water vapor does produce some pollution in the form of Nitrogen Oxides so Hydrogen combustion engines aren't recommended for use in vehicles that operate in enclosed spaces.

Ray, I wasn't trying to be "unpleasant".

You said "you just refill the hydrogen tank for the engine, which recharges the battery...unless I am missing something".

Toyota has been working on a Hydrogen engine to power a car in the same fashion as almost every existing gas vehicle in existence. Basically mechanically driving the rear (or front) wheels. What you described sounded more like a "hybrid" which Toyota currently produces as a gas-powered vehicle. Converting those to utilize Hydrogen as a fuel source may not make since if Hydrogen fuel cells are also available. At least I haven't seen/heard anything about Toyota working on a Hydrogen powered hybrid.

There is no more fitting day than June 6th for this article. It is connected with a Kickstarter project, but that doesn't alter its import or impact.

Yepper.
Sent that to a friend as well.
He said I should go with him to see one of his big suppliers and hang out and photograph the D-Day activities for a week and a half on Omaha beach next year... Wouldn't that be an adventure...

Just hit my mailbox:

The AllianceTexas Aviation Expo has been a Hillwood and
community tradition for 32 years. It has brought together aviation
leaders and enthusiasts from around the world and has
entertained hundreds of thousands of families while showcasing
the incredible growth of the Alliance region.
Largely as a result of that growth and due to unavoidable conflicts
in scheduling and logistics, Alliance Air Productions will not host
the AllianceTexas Aviation Expo in 2023. We completely
understand and are sensitive to the disappointment of the many
loyal and dedicated sponsors, volunteers, and fans.
We remain committed to the goals of bringing family
entertainment to North Texas, supporting local communities, and
opening doors to various career paths in aviation and aerospace.
Please know that plans for future events are being evaluated.
Thank you for 32 years of amazing support for the AllianceTexas
Aviation Expo (formerly Bell Fort Worth Alliance Air Show). Any
questions should be directed to xxxxx.

RIP

Went up to Mena, AR last week to photograph this beautiful Embraer Phenom 300. To say that it was a tad bit hot and humid in Mena, would be an understatement.

Really love this paint scheme!

Yesterday was a grueling, but fun assignment. How often does one get to photograph Darth Vader's head gear, C3PO, R2D2, George Washington's reading glasses, Abe Lincolns key to his suite at the Ford Theatre, The Ruby Slippers, Batman's Mask, a dozen other priceless artifacts, and a pristinely restored 1934 Petersen Boat Tail Blower Bentley?

These were all part of Glenn Beck's "American Journey" collection, an impressive collection of Americana. The museum includes a very eclectic collection of hundreds of rare items from around the world, the telegram that was sent out announcing the loss of The Titanic, a lock of Abraham Lincoln's hair taken after he was assassinated, Adoph Hitler's keys, George Washington's compass, historic documents of all kinds. Current estimate of the collections worth is north of $100 million dollars.

I met Glenn through our great friend Jeremy Boyd who used his limitless talent to create handmade leather bindings for many of the documents and artifacts. Truthfully, there is nothing that Jeremy tackles that doesn't end in excellence. Glenn is an amazing human being, tested in the fires of life and a true Patriot, it's a privilege to be a resource and a friend to him.

JIII and I were at the hanger the other day and he wanted to look at the antique cameras that I have on my shelves, he took a particular liking to the Hasselblad that God provided me to help kick start my photography business. While he explored the Bald I told him the story of that camera and that it would be his some day.............
