The MegaZoom Nikon P900 Is Also Pretty Awesome At Taking Macros.

I have had my Nikon P900 for just over 2 years. I have not been using it much of late. Appears that today is the first time I have used it since June! Yikes.

I am THINKING of selling it because it is a shame to keep such a camera and not use it.

Then I took these macro shots. They continue to please and impress. I won’t get much for the P900 now that the P1000 is out — BUT I probably can get enough to buy a decent, fullframe Nikon lens for the Nikon Z6 I plan to get early in 2019. No rush. I am going to think about.

Given that I am so used to a fullframe now — with my trusty Sony a7 II (that I have had for 18 months) — using this camera, with its TINY 1/2.3″ sensor feels like a joke. So, limiting OTHER than when shooting macro.

“The Illusionist” Movie (2006) — Even Better & Still Enthralling The Second Time Around.

I am not a great fan of rewatching movies. As such, I do it quite rarely. “The Illusionist” was one such exception and I am GLAD I watched it again. It was better the second time around.

I had seen over a decade ago — which is fair enough in that it came out 12-years ago.

It is now on Amazon Video which is how I came across it. I wanted Teischan (12) to see it. That is why we watched it, Saturday night.

Great story. Great magic. Easy to watch. Very enthralling. Highly recommended. Enjoy.
