I have a Canon SX10, a crossover camera, and would like to know what are the best settings for night photography, especially cities. I have used a night setting, with sometimes good results, and sometimes not...not good as you sometimes don't get a second chance. Appreciate any help, at all. Buzzard 19937


Welcome to the Hog, Buzzard 1937.

I always use back button focus with AI SERVO. I had Back Button Focus explained to me this way: Have you ever tried to do three things at once and got frustrated when you messed up on one of the three because it was just too much to keep track of? The shutter button does three things, it meters light, it focuses and it activates the shutter. That's a lot of things to do at once. By taking just one of those assignments away and giving it to another button on the camera the shutter button only has to do two things and you will get better results. By using Back Button Focus with AI SERVO you give the camera the opportunity to constantly focus on your subject instead of just the split second you push the shutter button. The key here is using AI SERVO. If you are using ONE SHOT you can still miss the shot if the camera focuses and the subject moves before you take the photo.

Well put, khorinek.

As a little insurance against any future transgressions, the Ministry of Mayhem's Artist-in-Residence, GoGo van Goghgogh, has created yet another masterwork (!?) for Madame P.

She was well-pleased with his effort, and gifted him a rare (and highly coveted) "Get Out of Green Time Free" card.

I'm jealous.

What's the chance of making fake "Get Out of Green Time Free" cards? Maybe you can borrow an original, and copy it, and give it back to Mr. GoGo.
Just a thought.
Well done Randy.

GoGo van Goghgogh wracked his brain (no easy task, embalmed as it normally was in Plutonium Joy Juice) and finally remembered whose portrait he had promised to paint. He worked feverishly to finish the project, neither sleeping nor eating, and interrupting his efforts only long enough to run downstairs and pester me for more Joy Juice (as the Ministry's astronaut/custodian, I have the keys to Martian's liquor cabinet...). Knowing the strain he was under, I couldn't say no.

At last the job was done, and an exhausted GoGo called Dark Lady Kimberly up to his studio. She stared at the portrait expressionless for many minutes, then finally turned to him. She nodded once, and left.

Neither sleeping nor eating? What's in that "joy juice"? Where do you get it? Is it for sell?

Unbelievably well done.

Thanks Randy,

Dark Lady Kimberly went on the attack in the early hours of the morning today. Halloween was near enough to raise the dead, so she cast a resurrection spell on her long-deceased Rumanian grandmother (shown here) and asked if she could take some time from her busy schedule to do a little haunting. Being so recently resurrected, her grandmother admitted she nothing much else going on, so she agreed. She located the Nanookian miniaturized submarine fleet in record time, and appeared in each and every periscope.

The sub crews were so terrorized that they scuttled their entire fleet and rowed to shore in teeny tiny life rafts (I'd have shown them, too, but before I could get a shot, in a final act of irony, Ministry of Mayhem seagull lookalikes milling about at the shoreline and previously programmed as feeder drones mistook the teeny tiny rafts for shrimp and ate them).

The Martian sent a note of thanks to Dark Lady Kimberly, and so as not to appear overly cheap, he paid for a wreath to be laid at her grandmother's grave.

Another happy ending for all. Except possibly the miniaturized Nanookian submarine crews now stuck inside the feeder drones. But not to worry, the Martian has directed Ministy engineers to work on getting them out. After lunch.

Happy Halloween!

No mention of what day, after lunch.
Dam the luck.

When they were first introduced, I avoided self-service cash checkouts because I thought they were taking jobs from people. I know someone who works in retail, and these DIY stations are not putting people out of work. In his store, it's not unusual for half a dozen people to just not show up for work. Maybe they will call and say they're coming in, but generally, they just don't show up. One day last week, there was only one person available to work a register. Without the DIY stations, they would have had a major problem. The store is paying a decent salary, well above the minimum. People don't show up, or they take extended breaks and lunches. This behavior covers all age ranges, from young to old. I can't understand it. I was in a supermarket last week, and only one register was open. A manager said that five people had called in "sick."

When I was in high school, I worked in a supermarket, and people showed up on time and did their work. We could count on each other to keep things flowing smoothly. So, don't turn your nose up at these self-service checkouts. They exist for your convenience.

Thanks Jerry for the new insight on this subject.

I photographed another motorcycle trials last weekend near Weeping Water, NE. It was raining the entire event and the ground was too slippery to walk into the sections as I usually do with my trusty 24-70, so I used the Nifty 50 and an umbrella and shot one-handed from a distance. Mostly used 1/1000, f3.5 with auto ISO. The outer lens on the 50 is quite recessed, so it was fairly easy to keep it dry.


Thanks Jack. Cool shots. Wished I was there.

Working out my travel plans for 2018

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Kahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Kahoots with someone.

I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my children, friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often. I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenaline flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

I may have been in Continent, but I don't remember what country I was in. It's an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there.

Thanks, John_F for posting something that I laughed myself to tears. So bad I couldn't read the monitor.
