  1. Another great software deal. I don't know if it's Covid-related or just pimping their new cloud service, but hey a deal's a deal. ON1 Photo RAW is going for 50 bucks. Personally, I like ON1 way better than Lightroom or Capture One, FWIW. https://www.on1.com/products/on1-360/how-it-works/
  2. Happy Birthday to my favorite person!!!
  3. Thanks, guys. I'm truly touched.
  4. Happy Birthday, birthday bud!!!
  5. Happy coincident Birthday!!!!
  6. You never seem to be around here nowadays.* But Happy Birthday anyway! *My attendance hasn't been so great lately either. So not judging.
  7. I tried the Dekoni all-velour pads on my Utopias and my impression of the result was "a $4,000 HD650". Which sounds like a put-down, but to my mind, is not a bad thing at all. At the moment, I'm using Elear pads on the Utopias. Tyll liked that combination back at Inner Fidelity. I tried it once before, thought it very musical but lacking the "magic" Utopia transparency and went back to the Utopia pads. This time around, I'm pretty happy with the Elear pads. The hybrid Dekonis failed to impress a year ago, but given my Elear pad experience... who knows?
  8. Hi All. Poping in from wherever the hell I've been. Posting in this thread because I'm mostly listening to the Uptopias these days and they're a bit of an odd load impedance-wise....... I've been threatening to try a solid-state amp for, well, years now. Without ever having done anything about it. A conversation over the weekend reanimated the idea. I'm seeking nominations for a SS amp that would work well with the Utopias - low Z out, quiet, don't need a ton of gain - that could be gotten for a small amount of money (<$1,000) since I have no idea if this is just a lark or no
  9. If anybody wants a copy of ON1 RAW https://www.on1.com/landing/0719-photo-raw-bundle/?utm_campaign=RAW2019.5_7-19&utm_source=Master&utm_medium=email&utm_content=announce&=&= Bundled with something you probably don't want, but it's fifty bucks for the package. I paid half again that much for my first license and that was an upgrade deal. If we all live long enough, I'll have a HOWTO on working with metadata in the program on my channel.
  10. I just got back in touch with my inner 500mm mirror lens. I've had a 500mm f/8 Reflex Nikkor since, basically, forever. For years, well decades, it rode around in my trunk. Eventually - like twenty, twenty-five years ago - the old mirror lens was supplanted by more "practical" long lenses, like a 400mm 3.5, and a 300mm 2.8, then a 500mm 4, 400mm 2.8, and a 600mm 4 when I needed it. You get the idea. The old mirror lens eventually moved from my trunk to the back of my camera cabinet at home. Which I am now trying to civilize. I'm selling old and stupid stuff, putting things in order,
  11. Home Depot has these things for twenty bucks right now. They make a dandy bicycle tire pump. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-18-Volt-ONE-Cordless-Power-Inflator-Tool-Only-P737/206159256 And a proper Blackburn chuck fits perfectly. (Just use a little Teflon tape to get the collar over the sleeve without fraying it.)
  12. Happy Birthday, John!!!! Wherever you might be....
  13. Happy Birthday Peter! Two is coincidence. Three is a trend! It's all going our way....
  14. Happy Birthday fellow 17th-er!
  15. It's been a good one. Thanks guys!
