    That's perfect for this group . LOL

    Bob looking great , can't wait to get there. I am actually packed, that is how excited I am.

    Bob's the advanced scouting team. LOL

    His job if he choices to do it is search out all the local bars and see who has the best Mojitos.

    We realize this is a tough job , but we rely heavily on his decisions.

    Well, I didn't let that little detail stop me. I'm in Las Vegas and last I checked we were in the same time zone.

    I will try to print that big, but I wonder if the shallow DOF will help it or hurt it.

    Wishing everyone a safe arrival in San Juan and Happy Shooting! I know I am going to miss a good one this week but I'll be checking in every day.

    Here's one for you - What is the over and under on how many megapixels Guy will end up leaving with for his MF kit?
    Just remember Guy, each boost in megapixels is another trip to Jimmy Choo's or Manolo's. Have fun!!!

    best to all
    - Charles

    Jack,
    You guys are killing us with those MF shots.
    Isn't that the same man that Bob photographed the other day?
    How did you ever see that kitty? You must have good eyes.

    Have not really started processing yet. But here is a P25 i shot today wide open or so. So far I really like the this back. Nice design and functionality. The files look superb. This is not the Plus back but even at ISO400 the files look pretty clean ,This one is ISO 100

    Hi Cindy:

    When I saw him on the bench, I thought so too, but when I got closer, I wasn't so sure... This guy doesn't appear quite as heavy as Bob's guy did, and had different shoes. Could have changed though. On the kitty, yes -- I've always had a knack for seeing minutiae

    Off to wine and cheese reception, followed by a rums of Puerto Rico tasting, then dinner if I can still walk

    More later!

    Jack - the first two ZD shots you posted are very nice images.

    The production Hy6 looks nicer than the prototype I handled at Photokina 06. The gray on gray is a little more contemporary than the red buttons. Congrats, David (K).

    You guys look like you have great weather and no shortage of photo ops. Wish I could be there.

    Have fun and keep the images coming.

    Great shots!! Keep them coming.

    O.K., have to say that I still love the M8 shots, as they have great color and even a mood to some degree, as in Brad's street shot of the guys in the doorways, but the MF shots are truly something else at this point. Jack's first shot of the covered tile walkway has a very dimensional look with detail that is hard to get from the M8, or other DSLRs.

    Guy, looks like you are enjoying those extra pixels and different files from the new back.

    Can't wait to see more once you folks get warmed up a bit ;-)

    David,
    I agree, the production version looks much better with the more subtle gray buttons rather than all that red "push me...no, push me....no me" button look of the prototype. That Hy6 is a sexy looking camera, mojitos or not

    Re: San Juan 2008-05

    Last evening we were treated to both a wine and cheese reception and a rum tasting. I thought that they would be the perfect venues for the Noctilux,

    While shooting the Noctilux, I thought, lets see if the bazillion ISO Nikon D3 shooters can match a Noctilux on a M8. Jack was the target. Bot Ray and I took our best shots. In the end I thing the fast glass on a M8 was the better choice



    Here is he crop. I was focusing on Jack's eyes. It was 1/15th at f1.2 and 640iso.

    Here are a few more with the Noctilux.

    This first one was taken by Jack. I assume he was focusing on the grape.



    This is Rodger trying his best not to get his picture taken. He was blinking so much, the first two shots has his eyed closed and this one has a touch of motion blur.



    Here is David and his Wife Marcie. David had just told her he was done spending money on camera gear



    Finally, one from this morning. I call this I have fallen and can't get up. Brad going for a low angle.

    These are a few from yesterday.

    Guy trying out one of the new backs.


    Bob and Guy in Old Town.


    Marcie, Guy and Jack.


    Guy and Jack were shooting this same scene to compare the dynamic range of their Digital backs. This is what I got from my digital back, camera on auto.
