3,989th image taken with my Nikon P900, on Thursday, September 29, 2016.

This is one heck of a camera!

I am very impressed with it. I am very fond of it.
I love using it.

Amazingly easy (and forgiving) camera to use.

Despite not having a control wheel and only one ‘Fn’ button, you can set it up for a shoot,
ONCE you have assigned ‘White Balance‘ to the ‘Fn’ just going, click, click, click, click.

3,930th image taken with Nikon P900

I picked up this Nikon P900, from Best Buy, on Sunday, August 28, 2016. I did not start using it until the next day. Thus, today, nominally is the ‘1 month’ anniversary (though I know that stictly speaking it is 1 month & 1 day).

The last picture I took today, September 29, in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, around 3pm, has a serial number 4,058. And over the course of the month I might have deleted 40 pictures or so. Basically not many. This camera takes ‘KEEPERS’.

4,000 in a MONTH is the most I have shot with any of my dozen or so cameras over the last 2 years.

When I shot 2,500 in the first month with my now relegated (i.e., traded-in) Fuji X-E2s, I thought that was a lot. Well I have taken 60% more pictures with the P900 — and I wasn’t trying. If I am to be frank over the last week, I have been so busy, that I didn’t have much time to use the camera.

4,000th photo taken with my Nikon P900, on Thursday, September 29, 2016.

Yes, I am fully aware (and sometimes conscious) that it is a 16MP 1/2.3″ sensor and the few prints I have had does show that — though they are not bad. But the images, as you have seen, over the last month, are just great for Web use, even when reduced to 1600×1200.

I got this camera as a ‘Grin & Giggles‘ to tide me over for 6 weeks, till I finished the “Brain Meditation” book — and while I was waiting for the likes of a Canon EOS M5.

Well, I am so happy with this camera that I am going to take my time deciding on the next camera. Plus I am writing another QUICK “Brain Meditation” book.

Plus, I will not get rid of this P900. I am going to keep it. Yes, I might end up with 3 or 4 cameras BUT the P900 is staying,

I definitely recommend it — HIGHLY.

A great, wonderful camera for an intermediate ameteur.

Images from the range 3,945 to 3,999.

Trump’s Insistence Of Wearing Ultra-Long Ties Is A Sure Sign That He Is Insecure About His Size.

by Anura Guruge


Do you own Googling and check it out. I have been wearing ties for over 40 years.


What is he trying to hide?


Forget about the size of his hands.

Concentrate on the length of his ties.

He is a tall man. To wear them THIS LONG he has to have EXTENSIONS sewn onto them.

Yes, I do know my ties. I wear ties even today. I have been wearing ties since 1969. I was taught to tie my ties in Britain. And yes I do use a perfect, double Windsor.

Trump has insecurity issues.

The tie is supposed to POINT.

The tie is NOT supposed to COVER.

Why Pay $200/$250 More For The New Olympus PEN E-PL8 When Technological It Is The Same As The PEN E-PL7.

by Anura Guruge


“DPReview” side-by-side of the Olympus PEN E-PL7 & E-PL8. All the relevant technology is the same, including the “TruePIC VII” image processor. Click to ENLARGE and study here. Do you won “DPReview” compare.


Click to ENLARGE and read here. “DPReview”, in its ‘First Impressions”, very clear that the changes are but plastic surgery and some added ‘art filters’! Ah!.

Same Lens — $250 price difference for COSMETICS!



Olympus PEN E-PL7 prices will continue to fall — and I can, if I wanted, use the 90-day ‘price match’ offered by Discover Card.

The cosmetics and selfie-mode of the E-PL8 mean nothing to me. At the current prices I might just get one to serve as the compact camera I no longer have now that I gave away my Panasonic Lumix LX100.
