I buy most of my photography equipment from B&H Photo, where I can generally get free shipping, based on the amount I spend, and no Sales Tax. Stores in California charge you Sales Tax, usually from 8-10%, depending on your County. So, a camera costing you $1000 will actually cost you about $1100, including tax. There is a section in the California State Income Tax Form, where you are to report your purchases from buying online. Unless you kept track of every purchase made, you could accurately figure your Tax. Many reported it and many did not. Once, this Supreme Court Decision is fully enacted, online sellers will have you to choose what State you are from, to determine how much State Tax should be paid. Most likely, if you are from a State with no State Sales Tax. Well, you are lucky. California loves all kinds of additional Taxes. It comes with living here.
The Supreme Court Ruled 5-4 today that States that have Sales Tax, can force you to pay Sales Tax on online purchases. Some States already have this requirement. Colorado is one. Actually, you should already be paying this, when you file you State Income Tax. Sometimes guessing. States had been complaining that online purchases were robbing them of billions of dollars in tax revenues. Now, the Supreme Court has taken action in behalf of the States.

A Nikon Bridge camera vs one of Nikon's best crop sensor cameras? While there are some fantastic Bridge cameras, such as the Sony RX10 series. But, putting a P900 up against a Nikon D7200 is no comparison to me. Just on the sensor size alone, 24 megapixels. And the P900 shoots JPEG only. Advantage, D7200.
This is the USS Iowa, also could be made battle ready. It is in San Pedro, CA. part of LA Harbor.
The USS Iowa was America's largest Battleship during World War 2. So impressive, that it made the front cover of Life Magazine on October 30, 1944. The surrender was aboard the USS Missouri, early September 1945, lead by 5 Star Army General, Douglas MacArthur. It has been rumored that ship was chosen, because it was the home State of President Harry S. Truman. Who was President for less than six months then.
You could call Adorama Photo Customer Service at 1-800-815-0702 and ask about the price difference. Perhaps they are unaware of Nikon's price? Nikon usually sets prices where vendors can't sell for less than Nikon's firm set prices.
I had read about this Carrier during the time the USS Gerald R. Ford was under completion. Both of these Aircraft Carriers are well advanced compared to the previous generations. The HMS Queen Elizabeth Aircraft Carrier is beautiful. President Trump will see that Carrier during his UK visit next month.
after months of researching i finally purchased a ... (
The Canon T7i is one of Canon's best Rebel Series crop sensor cameras. It sounds like you didn't purchase it from Canon USA Refurbished cameras. I'm curious as to where you purchased it from. Regardless, send it back.
Sad, I loved the Fleetwood Mac group. It looks like the longest living guitarist will probably be Keith Richards. Who many say should have died a long time ago. Even Keith said it. RIP Danny.
The one food Anthony Bourdain would not eat was Commercial Airlines Food. He said he would always arrive at his destination hungry, even if the flight was 16+ hours. He said that in 2016. CNN, his employer, has done a magnificent job in paying homage to his legacy. I watched 3 previous episodes the cable network showed last night. Two of which I had not seen. The Japan visit was the one I had seen. Enjoyed it again.
Accolades from all over the world have followed his death. So sad. You just never know what demons are hiding in people's brains.
Bourdain showed us the world beyond most of our reach. He even returned to some cities to show us what advancements they made from his first visit. And he sought out individuals he met during his first visit. Being from NYC, he was the city's icon. The foods he ate were incredible looking. And some not so incredible looking. That's what made it so interesting to me. To see the cuisines of the world.
I have the Nikon AF-P 18-55mm that has VR. I personally don't think it is necessary to have VR on a lens having a focal length up to 70mm. Film cameras lenses didn't have any VR at all, and photographers took great photos. I do believe lenses that have a focal length up to 300mm and over does have an advantage of having VR though.
apparently , according to the gendarmes , he hung himself in is hotel room bathroom with his bathrobe belt .he was treated for depression .he will be missed , has a 12 ? year old daughter . that is going to be hard for her at that age . great guy .
CNN never gave the details of suicide when first reported. I changed the word had to has, in regards to his daughter. I believe there was mention of her being 11 years old. I'm wondering if the Berlin, Germany episode will Air tomorrow night. He always gave historical mention of all the places he visited. Berlin, Germany certainly has a history. Especially during and after WW2.
Anthony Bourdain was a recovered heroin addict from the 1980s. He mentioned that once on one of his past shows. I wonder if some inner pain was still left from that experience. Kate Spade, a noted fashion designer of women's hand bags and purses, was another strange suicide shocker. Both had jobs that were lucrative. But, that's not always a solution to depression or happiness. Anthony has a young daughter. She has to wonder. Why?
I know we all use UPS and Fed-Ex a lot and wanted ... (
That is really sad to hear, because in the my community, we have thieves who follow UPS trucks during the Christmas Holidays. They steal after the package(s) have been placed on the front porch. I knew one UPS driver who was fired for drug use. Most are honest. When your UPS driver marked your package as delivered, I believe his intention was to keep it for himself.
CNN's Anthony Bourdain has died in Strasbourg, France. He was a noted American Chef from NYC, skilled in the martial arts, and had a personality that many were attracted to. I've watched his show "Parts Unknown" with much enthusiasm. He was one of a kind. I can still remember some of his quotes on places he visited. He said the greatest food was in San Sebastian. He loved war torn Beirut, and Hong Kong was a favorite city of his. The video of his shows were excellent, showing how inhabitants deal with everyday life, both rich and poor. And mentioning the City's history. If you were a still photographer, you would have loved to travel with Anthony Bourdain. RIP Anthony. You will be hard to replace. His next show was to take place in Berlin. I don't know if CNN will televise it. Suicide is reported as cause of death.
