    Joan promises in blood that she will post shots from her brand new (used) Digilux 2 in a little while. That camera puts out some GREAT colors and files.

    I'm jealous but so happy to see you had a great time. And I love the Betty Boop look. LOL

    Re: We met up!!! NY get together

    Helen had the crowd mesmerized by the little itty bitty, lightning fast GRD II. There may be some upcoming purchases from the gearhead crowd. Before I can even think about there are about a half dozen point and shoot (not good enough for the small sensor crowd) ebay sales that need to happen first.

    Bob put the Iphone down and enjoy lunch. I know exactly what you are looking at GetDPI forums.

    Very sorry to have missed this. Great shots everyone. I did enjoy the live Prairie Home Companion though. So, next time for sure.

    it does look like you all had a grand time! i wish i could have been there...

    maybe a mini-meet one night next week when i send my boyfriend up the Empire State Building alone? (been there, done that -- but it's really my claustrophobia that can't handle that lift ride anymore)

    Re: We met up!!! NY get together

    Well I am looking forward to being at the next meet in July. Hope everyone in the area can make it. I am coming in to run a big Modeling and Talent convention that my wife runs the company so i am coming in a extra day early to do a meet with all our GetDPI friends. I believe that date is July 17. So I can go from early in morning until around 3 or so. If someone can take the reins and get this setup that would be wonderful. My hotel is at 53rd and 6th so we can meet anywhere you folks want.

    Bob, very nice shots in the park. I really like the first one in the post "The Park (2)" of the long path with budding trees.

    And, quite the fashionable group!

    Bottom line:
    after trekking about with the Gearheads yesterday
    and seeing their posts (truly divine)
    Glass Is Everything / Glass Rules

    so here comes a G.A.S. attack:
    (which I believe Cam is already suffering from)

    I am sorry, but due to circumstances, I enjoyed the company of these ladies all by myself.
    I have discovered the connection between Manhattan and New Jersy which I post below.

    Did you get some good stuff in the park today? We probably had half the NYC inhabitants as well as a like number of tourists as for subject matter.

    Charlie you should play hooky and join us -- this is sure to a really fun trip. I understand there are over 50 bars in Old San Juan.
