I’ve been playing with the u4/3.  I’ve taken to just keeping it with me rather than one of the Pentax bodies.  Mostly because it’s a lot smaller and lighter, but also because it’s less expensive.  I’m having a few challenges with the UI, couldn’t figure out how to bracket.  The image quality is a lot better than my cell phone, but the raw files seem a bit more delicate, or fragile than, especially, the K-1.  Much, much less dynamic range for one.  I also find the evf to be a mixed blessing, particularly for dynamic scenes. I do suspect that the newer bodies do much better in terms of both sensor and EVF.

Last week I road my bike up Zayante road to the summit.  The volunteer fire department had this amusing recruitment sign up on one of their stations:

If anyone is curious, I also have some photos of planes landing at SJC at sunset, and a few shots from another bike ride as well

Interesting. So, are you a Roadie in your spare time?

I call that my “anyroad” bike.  It is suboptimal for technical uphill offroad, but the day before I went on a somewhat shorter ride where I rode up pavement and back down the hill on trails.

Sunday was 29 km and 620 m of climbing (according to Strava)

https://www.strava.com/activities/7224348785

Monday was 29 miles and 2900 feet of climbing

47km & 890m

Well, you're doing much better than I am. I haven't ridden my Bike for
months. When I do, it is usually for accurately measuring Race Routes
using the Clane-Jones method. I have a Trek road bike - hopeless for off
road with those thin tyres.

I guess they don’t have many volunteer fire departments in NYC.  You don’t get paid, you get dragged out of bed at weird times, but you do get a cool fireman’s helmet.

You don’t get paid, you get dragged out of bed at weird times, but you do get a cool fireman’s helmet. kind of like this one from another local VFD https://www.flickr.com/photos/ellarsee/8186240718/in/album-72157632011209316/ > shots of burnt trees and such sad but nicely photo'ed Thanks > I prefer birds to airplanes - landlubber moi I wasn’t quite able to get a good shot of a plane in front of the prettiest of the clouds > > > On 6/6/2022 1:56 AM, Larry Colen wrote: >> I’ve been playing with the u4/3. I’ve taken to just keeping it with me rather than one of the Pentax bodies. Mostly because it’s a lot smaller and lighter, but also because it’s less expensive. I’m having a few challenges with the UI, couldn’t figure out how to bracket. The image quality is a lot better than my cell phone, but the raw files seem a bit more delicate, or fragile than, especially, the K-1. Much, much less dynamic range for one. I also find the evf to be a mixed blessing, particularly for dynamic scenes. I do suspect that the newer bodies do much better in terms of both sensor and EVF. >> >> Last week I road my bike up Zayante road to the summit.
