Barn Owl, thanks for posting the information about B&H. That looks like the most attractive option for me.

I've had a few Merrells that I've been pleased with. I've seen a few retailers mentioned here which I'd be fully comfortable buying from, such as Bass Pro, Cabela's, LL Bean, REI. I'd also feel good about Eastern Mountain Sports and Dick's.

Yes, a gift card is always an option. I think it would be a little more special if I could find something cool and functional.

Just because he's a photographer doesn't mean you MUST give a photographic gift. There are other aspects of his life outside photography. Consider a gift card like VISA which can be used anywhere and let him decide what he wants to use it on.

Picasa 3 stand alone its free

Google no longer supports Picasa. It still works and I love it, but I'm afraid it's one Windows 10 update away from ceasing to work.

Here in Rochester, NY Scott's Photo offered a lot of processing and lab services. Scott wanted out for reasons unknown to me. The store was bought by Rowe Photo, an old company which is the leading camera store in the area, and they operate the place under the name Scott's Photo by Rowe.

Hello again. Never mind. Decided to go a different direction.

I'd love to sell it to you, but I appreciate the courtesy of that reply.

Good guess if I were still on the east coast But in central/eastern Washington State, this is a relative: the Wilson's Snipe (which is a far cooler name, no?). Thank you!

Thanks. I wasn't comfortable with my Woodcock guess because it has buffy underparts, but I can see where Wilson's makes sense.

This is with the 75-300 mm lens at 300 mm, if that focal range might be of interest to you. With your sports venues, the relatively short distance from subject to background could definitely be an issue - assuming you're on the sidelines and not shooting from the goal ends

M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II Lens at f/8

Nice pic, Linda. A former active birder shouldn't have to ask, but I will. Woodcock?

So did I ... that's how I know you'd be hard pressed to make it from Syracuse to Rochester in less than two hours ....

There seem to be some differences of opinion on the distance between the two cities. I stand by my original statement of "an hour or so" and suggest consulting Google or a map site. Here's one result:

"Estimated Travel Time Between Syracuse and Rochester
Average Speed Travel Time
30 mph (48 km/h) 02 hours 56 minutes
40 mph (64 km/h) 02 hours 12 minutes
50 mph (80 km/h) 01 hours 45 minutes
60 mph (97 km/h) 01 hours 27 minutes
70 mph (112 km/h) 01 hours 15 minutes
75 mph (120 km/h) 01 hours 10 minutes"

I will be spending about 2 weeks in upstate New York visiting friends and relatives and taking in the fall colors. I have a camera that needs the sensor cleaned but I can't get it done locally before I leave. Can anyone recommend camera stores in the Albany or Syracuse/Utica area?

Sorry, I know nothing about Albany or Syracuse/Utica. However, Rochester is about an hour or so west of Syracuse and there's an excellent camera store here, Rowe Photo, I have no idea if they clean sensors. P.S. I just called and they clean sensors for $44.99. He said that sometimes they do it while you wait and sometimes ask you to drop it off for a couple of hours.
