This is Devanee’s (18) third year on the “Prospect Mountain” “Bob (319)” team (with the orange sweatshirts). She is in charge of media relations.

This was the third ‘Battle of the Bay’ we have thus attended. They do a good job organizing it and a lot of people attend. It was fun.

Per ‘Nikon Rumors’ The First Production Nikon Z6 Units Have Been Shipped To The U.S.

This is inline with what Nikon had said to begin with, i.e., Z6 availability in the U.S. around November 28. That is exciting.

As I have maintained, from the start, I do NOT plan to get a Z6 in 2018. I don’t want one of the very first units. Just have a feeling that there might be some teething issues.

Going to wait for the holiday rush to be over … and then check the Forums and read the reviews.

If everything looks good come January 1, 2019, I will order one then. I am in no hurry. My Sony a7 II is still good … though I am RAPIDLY approaching 30,000 pictures with it. Yes, 30,000 pictures. That is a lot of pictures. Here is a way to visualize what 30,000 pictures mean. IF I took 10 pictures a day, it would take 8.2 YEARS to take 30,000 pictures.

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.

IF I Didn’t Have A Real Camera I Would Consider This ‘Pictar Pro’ For My Google Pixel 2.

IF I didn’t have a real camera (or in my case two, i.e., Sony a7 II & Nikon P900) I would consider getting this ‘Pictar Pro‘ to use with my Google Pixel 2 phone. I miss having a GRIP and control wheels. But, I can’t justify it. If I want the feel of a real camera I can use one of my real cameras. Yes, I use the Google Pixel 2 phone in places, e.g., shows, where I cannot take a camera — BUT I can see that using this will lead to trouble. Does make your phone look like a camera.
