Since there's almost nothing going on with photography due to the COVID-19 thing, l'm just trying to post things to keep PN active.




#264131 Brand new AM/FM/Shortwave cassette radio?

Nice little recorder Herman. Do you still use it?




#264126 Brand new AM/FM/Shortwave cassette radio?

Posted by LightMeter on 01 April 2020 - 03:07 AM

Nice one, Bill. I still have a fully functional Sanyo mini cassette recorder (walkman model). Not with all the extra fancy stuff though.

Can you post a picture of it Herman?




#264123 Brand new AM/FM/Shortwave cassette radio?

l recently found out you can but a new one. Yes it's cheap quality, but the cassette will probably work longer than a 35-40 year old Sony or Panasonic. l may pick one up before they get discotinued.

#264041 Texas karate

Posted by LightMeter on 11 March 2020 - 03:29 AM

l like the Texas flag next to the "karate" sign. Downtown Tomball Texas. ln the 2nd image, there's no way l could have recovered the badly overexposed sky if l was still a JPEG only shooter.

Today l went to the Russian restaurant in downtown Tomball Texas and had a photo outing. The Blues Brothers was the main subject of interest. Canon M50, Canon 18-135 STM. l shot some in the overcast. After l ate, the sun came out so l went back to get more.

#263995 At the park with my Pentax K-5

Posted by LightMeter on 05 March 2020 - 12:57 AM

Finally had some time to try out the K-5 and 18-135 lens. The lighting was very poor. lt was close to sunset and the overcast was heavy. For the last shot it was getting dark so l used the pop up flash.
