Pictures: Kingman area still yet …. change coming soon 🙂 I was looking for a view on this walk.
Exercise: I got my lazy self out and did my two miles walking today.
Pictures: Still more 🙂
Exercise: Only 3/4 a mile but I was climbing around on the cliffs. The knees where giving me a bit of trouble too.
Camera : Looks like my Camera and other small goodies will all be at my mail service Thursday, so I can have them ship to a post office somewhere near me on Friday and receive them next week at some point. I order couple memory cards and a remote for the Camera too. When you boom-dock getting mail is a bit of a pain, because there no address for the desert! Just have to wait a few more days 😦
Pictures: I have three folder of pictures from the area and I am still on the second one, so …… more to come. I was lucky to have some overcast days when I came and it made for good photographing 🙂
City: Went into Kingman today and did a few chores, pick up water for the RV, pick up a few gallon jugs of water for my drinking water, did the laundry and little shopping. Such is the exciting life of an old dude out in the wide RVing!
New Lens: Ha, that is probably a year out, only one toy at a time. I have been looking at the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens a lot but that thing is just too costly for me just now. The 100-400 with a 1.4 ext would give me a nice reach of 560mm. I think in a year the price will drop some and maybe by then I’d be ready to buy. I have looked a lot at the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM C lens too, a much cheaper lens with about 90% of the ability of the Canon lens. The Sigma would be great competition for the Canon on the long end seeing as I would have to use the 1.4 ext on the Canon but from 100-400 the Canon would be the top dog for sure! Given the choice and money not being a considerations, I would for sure go with the Canon but seeing as the Sigma is half the price and money is a considerations, well ….. Just thinking on it all 🙂 Jump in with comments if you have thoughts on it.
My long lens for now are the Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM Lens and the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens with no IS. Both great lens but I would trade the two of them and some dollars for the new Canon 100-400mm II. Oh I do have the Canon EF 1.4X II Extender, would be nice to upgrade to the III. Of course I could go on with a long list of all the gear I would love to have …. but I’ll make do I guess! LOL
Pictures: The area is good for me 🙂
Exercise: I walk just over two and half miles today.
Camera: I have finally broke down and order a new(to me, Refurbished) camera! Nothing major but I did order a Canon 7D II. That means that my 20d will soon get a long await rest(over 10 years of use) as the old 7DI takes over it’s job and the new 7D II will become my birding camera. I think I got a good deal on a Refurbished 7D II from Canon Direct. From reviews that I have read you can’t tell the different between the Refurbished and a new one. At any rate I’m looking forward to a new toy 🙂
Exercise: I did a little better today, with a 3 mile walk.
Blogs and following: I am following a lot of blogs and between keeping up with those that interact with my blog and the sometimes the WordPress reader, I miss some of the post I really want to see so I added a plug-in/add-on (or what ever you like to call them) to Firefox and it does the trick by letting know when folks update their post. It is the “Distill Web Monitor” works great so far. You add websites to it that you want to monitor and it checks them for you and give a notice when they change. It will watch a page for changes in a few different ways and if you watch everything it will even tell you when the adds change and I don’t want to know that! I just use the date of the last post and when that changes I know there is a new post and so far that is working (still have not seen changes in all the ones I added, but maybe those folks will get busy and update soon). Great plug-in 🙂
