Long time no visit for me! Last visit date was 4/2 according to Disboards... nothing like standard real-world busyness to get in the way of forum activity!

Lots of nice shots posted in here... too many to comment on individually since it's been so long!

How many trips through the Haunted Mansion do you bet it will take me to get the picture? LOL!
I think I tend to leave the camera in "P", but of course, that's a fairly customized "P". I keep thinking later that I should be used shutter priority and set it to 1/50th or 1/60th, maybe 1/30th... since you're constantly moving, you need to keep the shutter speed fairly high. Nothing else matters is the picture has too much motion blur. You may want to change your metering mode; spot metering is generally your best bet, so it meters on exactly what you're pointing at, rather that trying to pull detail out of backgrounds that are virtually invisible in real life, and blowing out all the detail in the important part while it's at it.

For the handheld, lowlight shots, for the most part, those are done with fast lenses, f1.4/1.8. Also, I really don't worry too much about people walking in front of the camera with a long shutter speed as they either don't appear or look like ghosts. Sometimes it actually adds to the image, IMO.
A good point but it's also nice to remember that shake reduction is automatically turned off when using bulb mode or the 2-second delay. This, for me, takes care of almost all the times that I use the tripod - bulb mode and a remote shutter release for fireworks, or 2-second mode for static objects.

I've almost done going through my photos from my January trip... here's a couple.

How about a shot of my latest DSLR?



Yes, a Nikon invaded the Pentax collection! Don't worry, it's not staying. I got it in trade for my K-7 - and together, it's worth about $500 more than the K-7 was so it was kind of a no-brainer. (D90 + 18-200mm VR.) I played with it a little and I really felt almost like I'd never used a DSLR before - I couldn't figure out how to do just about anything! It took me a while before I could even figure out how to do some very basic things, and I really can't stand the way high ISOs are listed as "hi1" or whatever, rather than the actual ISO. I also never did figure out how to get it into video mode, I have no idea what a couple of the buttons or sliders do, and at one point, I got it into a mode where all the settings except white balance were grayed out until I shut it off and on again. Strange! The focus is pretty fast though (probably faster than the K-7, maybe a little slower than the K-5, from purely objective observations), but overall, I was a little surprised that it wasn't more impressive. Oh, and the lens creeps, too, which I haven't seen with an OEM lens before. The only lens I've owned that did was my old Tamron 28-75mm.

So, it's up on Craigslist now... the last thing I need is is a second system!

Thank you. Yeah, I cannot understand this new crop of teenage boys. Luckily this one is just her best guy friend. They didn't even share one dance together and she left with a different group of kids.
