These days, almost any new digital camera (DSLR, Mirrorless or P&S) should get nice results in decent lighting conditions. Sensors have improved tremendously in the last 10 years. I remember my...

Hmmm, I have always found that the RP ads seem to be directly related to my recent internet searches. I get ads for B&H, Adorama, etc. If you're getting ads for Ashley Madison, and you're not...

Right. That's the reason why charter operators strictly control the use of drones. They make noise, which really tees off the video guys. Still guys like me generally don't care, as long as they...

Amen. It may be because I am getting old, but I don't find U2-style photos of trains to be at all pleasing to the eye. If I owned a drone, I might be shooting at a 30-degree down-angle from...

Both NS and CSX need to pay a designer to come up with a snazzier logo and more striking corporate colors, at least IMHO. :roll: Virtually any of the so-called "hurtage oonits" were better looking...

Hmmmm. Not being tuned in to "social media", I would have no earthly idea what you are talking about. Does this involve the "World's Greatest Railroad Photographer?" That's just a wild guess.
