Nikon D500 — Have You Seen Nikon’s Impactful Brochure?

by Anura Guruge


Pretty impressive. Informative too.
Definitely worth looking at.
You could even learn a lot, especially about the Autofocus (AF).

Click here to download the Nikon D500 brochure
from Nikon (U.S.A.)
— it is a rather large (148MB) PDF.

It was ‘OK’. Let’s just say (and I say this as a taxpayer) that Alton doesn’t believe in spending too much money on the ‘4th of July’ fireworks. The “Alton Old Home Day” fireworks, in August, tend to be better (but again we are not talking Weirs, Wolfeboro or Meredith, let alone Portland (Maine) or Boston (Massachusetts). [The ‘original’ Boston does not do July 4th fireworks.]

But fireworks are fireworks and I am a sucker for them. So we always go. It is always fun and that it was last night. Great weather (especially compared to last year when the 4th of July fireworks were on the 12th of July). Wasn’t packed but there was a respectable crowd. Parking wasn’t bad. We got there about 8:45, parked in our normal ‘area’ and walked down the hill. Watched the fireworks, as usual, from our spot on the bridge. I took about 275 pictures with the Fuji X-E2s and the whittled it down to 183.

Two things were different this year. As you can see from some of the pictures it wasn’t as dark (down the Bay as it normally is). We had a nice orange backdrop when the fireworks started. That was cool and sure made a difference to my pictures. The second change was the always much anticipated FINALE. They did not, as is customary, ‘paint the heavens’ and create ‘rolling thunder’. Instead, it was a mainly-white, low level ‘sparkler’ display. It was OK. Different. You can see it in the YouTube video.

I stitched together the 183 usable pictures I got, from the Fuji X-E2s, into a YouTube photomontage and set it (what else to) Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. The pictures are in chronological order. So you should get a good feel. Enjoy.
