    Default "The Camera You Have with You"

    We often hear that the best camera is the one you have with you. This was proven true recently.

    I went to a semi-annual dinner with people from my high school class. At the last minute, I decided to bring my tiny Sony WX9, which easily fits into a pocket. Usually, a friend with a D810 takes lots of beautiful pictures, but I figured I'd get a few shots, too.

    As it turned out, the "pro" guy had problems with his D810/flash combo, so he got only four pics, while I got over a dozen. Low tech is better than high tech when the high tech isn't working.

    EDIT: Too funny! I posted this on the wrong forum! I go back and forth between a photo forum and this one. Somehow, I posted this here, rather than there. I imagine people will wonder why I posted this here. (So do I.)

    Very true! I think that applies to a lot of the stuff we have surrounding us. However, your little camera is high tech" to someone's "kodak".

    Having given up photography as a hobby, I no longer carry one 'just in case' I see something.

    But I will take one with me occasionally when I go somewhere a bit special, 'just in case' I want to get a shot, (usually a tiny pocket compact with a 10x zoom).
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    That is so true. My brother used to be a professional sound recordist working in film and TV. He tells of an occasion when it was necessary to record the vocal reactions of a glider pilot undertaking his first solo flight. The director insisted on recording onto a large reel-to-reel tape machine - he despised "unprofessional, crappy" small cassette recorders. My brother looked at the radio transmitter needed to make this work, and was not happy. He secured a cassette recorder in the cockpit with gaffer tape, without telling the director.

    The radio link failed, and the once only event could not be repeated. The director was distraught, until my bro told him about the "crappy" cassette recording, which had captured the event quite adequately.

    Yes, for "the first time," you must have a backup.

    Salmon - delicious. It was the hors d'oeuvres that were really impressive. They kept coming in waves. Open bar, too. Since I had to drive 2 1/2 hours to get home, I limited myself to one porter.

    We get together every half year. Or maybe it's that we eat just half the dinner. I forget.

    It was held on Long Island, just a few miles from the ocean. : )

    What about your phone camera? I don't even know where a real camera is in my house anymore.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.
