comment Galapagos vacation — what photo gear should I take?
@JavaCake - re solar. What sort of solar refs. I can give many many so a particular emphasis useful. I am arguably "highly expert" [tm] in that area. You may wish to get email address from my profile and contact me offlist. Google my name + BOGO to see some relevant things I am involved in.

comment Galapagos vacation — what photo gear should I take?
@JavaCake - at a glance the VC has inbult stabilisation and the PZD has an ultrasonic internal motor. Neither appears to have both. Mine has neither. I think the optics are the same. Which is better depends on your usage. I'd probably opt for stabilisation if I did not have a Sony camera(which has antishake in the body). But would need to look at claimed PZD advantages.

comment Is the fake “Old photo look” taking the emotion out of real ones?
Photo shop, stonewashed Jeans, Photoshop, modern youth, photoshop, Gen X, photoshop, mumble grumble, what's the world coming to, Photoshop! ... || :-) - I aim to take photos that are OK out of camera with core processing chanages (colour balance, contrast, sharpen & friends), Crop. Maybe rotate a little. Each to their own but retro degraded seems to be somewhat missing the point. Unless, perhaps, you were there ;-). I almost was.

comment Can I use an image of someone else's displayed-in-public branding without special permission?
IANAL: This is out of my head based on impressions I have formed "along the way". Anything that contradicts this may well be correct :-) - I understand that it's potentially questionable but liable to be OK if the aircraft manufacturer is "sensible". If the manufacturer wished to discourage the supplier for commercial of any reasons I understyand that they may have potential for complaint.

comment Different backup camera strategy
As well as detailed factual recordings I get a wide array of cameos of people and interactions along the way. 1 only example 'A young woman standing in heavily falling snow holding two umbrellas, talking on a cellphone, head angled, a look of utter rapture on her face - evidently talking to a loved one'. Such memories easily enough flee my mind and are revived by a photo. Such are utterly invaluable parts of my numerous journeys which now merge in memory - and are minor but integral part of my 'self actualisation'. To each their own. Photos trigger rich valued memories otherwise lost to me.

comment Different backup camera strategy
Re " ...barely falls under self-actualisation." --> :-) || Re: "I'd argue that a watercolour box and sketchbook would give you a more meaningful personal record" --> The paucity of your surmise would be laid bare by a single glance at my efforts with watercolour and/or sketchbook :-). | I hear your argument clearly and have done so from the start. I could argue your point convincingly in a debate. I just happen to utterly disagree with it. Helps add to the rich tapestry of life.
