Did a trip through SoCal and to Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Seal Beach, Malibu, SLO, Santa Barbara, Monterey. Anyways, in the parking lot to Balboa Pier in Newport Beach these three guys were looking at this pickup truck and I couldn’t figure out why. As I got closer I realized they were watching a Cooper’s Hawk eat a pigeon. I haven’t shot many wildlife images in my life, it’s not really my thing, but with my M6II and the 55-200mm shooting freehand I nailed some shots.
It’s been a year since the shelter in place was implemented here in California. A year flew by. See my Coronavirus blog. Gravel bikes seem to be all the rage for a few years now, so here are my thoughts on gravel bikes. I started a new page on the Bay Trail. Setting up tubeless tires and other tire related issues.
Lumix S5 first impressions
4.1.2020 M6 Mark II firmware 1.1.0 available for 24p video! Of course this should have been in the released version, but whatever, it’s available now. 24p is what most closely resembles the film look so it is extremely popular with filmmakers and my go to frame rate.
4.30.2020 Sold my last M3 😦 I got $200 for it and used it and another M3 body I bought for most of my images the last 5 years. I’m down to an M6 Mark II and an RP. I plan to do more macro photography with my EF-M 28 and EF-S 60. For sure I’ll keep an EF-M system, just not sure if I need a FF system. Too much gear to carry around.
