What can I say. We picked up this real cool, and incredibly light walking stick at our amazing ‘Swap Shop‘ at the Town ‘dump’ (a.k.a. recycling center).

When I was walking towards the house, once we got back, I noticed my shadow. I had the stick in my hand. Played around with it. This was the 3rd shot. The other two were OK, but I liked the exposure on this the best.

So, if tomorrow, Monday, August 21, 2017 you start wondering as to when you might have seen another Solar Eclipse, over NEW ENGLAND, it would have been on Tuesday, May 10, 1994.

I remember it. I watched it from New Ipswich, New Hampshire. It was NOT a total solar eclipse.

We in New England did NOT see the May 20, 2012 solar eclipse. So, if you hear folks going on about the 2012 eclipse don’t feel bad. It never reached New England.

Again remember what you will be watching is the MOON passing across the face of the Sun. Not some shadow. Got that?

Do NOT confuse this August 7 – 8, 2017 partial Lunar eclipse with the BIG ONE — the August 21, 2017, Total Solar Eclipse. That is a totally different kettle of fish. Yes, that will be visible in New Hampshire. More on that once we get past this one since there will be lots of confusion.

What it will look like. The disc of the Sun will be blocked by the shadow of the moon. You will see sunlight behind the shadow.

Two Sony RX10 III Sample Images, Untouched JPEGs, Gives Me Pause.

by Anura Guruge


These two ‘Out of the Camera’ (OCC) JPEGs, by famous U.S. photographer Steve Huff, using a pre-release Sony RX10 III, at the U.S. announcement on March 30, 2016, in San Francisco, gave me pause for thought. There were, of course, other images in the set, by Steve Huff, that were very good.


A crop from a Steve Huff image.

This is at 600mm zoom and the seal looks OK. Just not impressed with how the rocks in the background look. Not, in my opinion, a depth of field (DOF) issue. A tad to fuzzy for my liking. That would bother me.


Another crop from a Steve Huff image.

Yes, I am sure that it could have been easily fixed with Exposure Compensation, but I don’t like amount of shadow on her face.  I would have deleted this image!


In the case of the Sony RX10 III I have to always compare it to my own Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 given that I know it so well. Some of Steve Huff’s pictures are superb and way beyond my capabilities. But I am just looking at the camera, the senor and the optics. I will keep on looking. Just wanted to share.
