One of my other hobbies is photography. Years ago I had a Leica M6, Hasselblad medium format camera and a Graphic View 5×7 camera. In the late 1990’s, I switched to digital, once cameras had whopping 2 megapixels!
I use a Sony a6000 now with a couple decent lenses – it does everything I need for now. I don’t expect that I will get another camera for at least a year – and I’ve had the a6000 for about 3 years already – a record for a digital camera and me. The a6000 is a 24 mp camera with a 1″ sensor – and the features they added in the last 3 years are nothing that interests me (4K video, digital EVF, etc).
I’ve been cataloging all of my digital photos going back 20 years – which are on about 3 or 4 computers – some that I expect won’t last long – so I am copying all of the photo files to a tiny 2 TB USB drive attached to my laptop. I SFTP the files from the other computers using FileZilla, and over this past weekend – copied all of my old photo CD’s – a shopping bag full of them. At least I had them in old Aperature projects – and so its relatively easy to export them into directories and back them up. True to Apple form – they long ago discontinued Aperature and iPhoto – and so they are along the lines of my old Mac – a beautiful big aluminum case rig but stuck at OSX 10.6 . . . oy vey
Wow – CD’s sure are slow when you compare with a computer hard drive to an SSD. Even over wireless its ultra fast to back up these (non CD) based files.
I’ll try to post some nice Fall color photo’s soon – the one’s from a Colorado trip a few years back are about the best I’ve ever done – Colorado in the Fall is just amazing – as majestic as New England – but with the Rockies as well. Some with white caps.
Is it already September 5? The only bad thing about Fall is that it always goes by way too fast . . .
