Re: what's in your bag?

Depends on where I am going.. Sometimes just a small P&S does the trick.

I got away from bags / backpacks while walking with my stuff. I use a belt, and a attach whatever I need to accommodate what gear I'm taking. No sweaty back, no [more]

Human Camera -loong ago, maybe

Out of pure boredom I watched Tim's Vermeer. The guy who started the company NewTek (anyone remember the Video Toaster on the Amiga?) sheds some light on how Johannes Vermeer might have made his photo realistic paintings. I usually cannot sit though [more]

Re: DSLR question

Have her go to a camera store and use them. Finding one that fits her hand well, has the right weight/balance and above all is easy to navigate to her will be more important than the price or deal you get.

If you don't mind: How much did you put into your 529? Over what time period, and what is the value of it today?

Re: Newbie

I disagree.
You have as much control over the money as any mutual fund investment. You can start with your money in a Fidelity S&P500 index. If you don't like that, you can move it to a different fund - maybe TIAA-CREFF's small cap blend

Re: Gearing Up

Even as an in-state student the costs are absurd. Literally 9x what I paid 25 years ago. I won't get political on this board, but we really need to do something. If 1poorlady and I didn't have engineering-level jobs 1poorkid would be in a world of [more]

Re: Newbie

I have always thought that 529 plans were the worst. You do not have any control of the money. Whoever runs the plan has control over what they invest in. If the money is not used for school you pay penalties.

Re: Canon questions

My current body is the 1D Mark IV, which I've had since release, and been very happy with. My primary need at this point is simply a second body. My girls, eleven and fourteen, are doing martial arts, specifically Wushu, and I've spent a fair [more]

Re: Canon questions

I found the X to be an overpriced camera lacking in many ways but you might need some specific feature only it has.

The II versions of the two you already got are only a noticeable improvement if you pixel peep. In side by side tests with my [more]
