WITH THE IMPENDING HOLIDAYS OF THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS THE SHOP DUCK FELT THE NEED FOR SECURITY FORGETTING THAT TREX IS A CARNIVORE
THE SHOP DUCK WAS MOMENTARILY CONFUSED WHICH UPCOMING HOLIDAY IT IS ………
THE SHOP DUCK HASN’T DECIDED ON A HALLOWEEN COSTUME YET BUT I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHERE THIS GOING.
THE DUCK KNOWS JOINERY WHETHER IT BE MORTISE AND TENON, DOWELS, SCOTCHES, OR A SIMPLE GLUE, CLAMP, AND PIN
The Shop Duck’s always ready to lend a hand
It’s kinda the Shop Duck’s job to keep an eye on things
I’ve never been one to get all worked up at new product announcements, especially when it comes from the internet mavens who crush each other in their stampede to be FIRST – but I gotta admit when I first heard the rumors about what would become Fuji’s flagship the X – H2 my interest was aroused and I thought I’d check it out down the line at the schedule release date of 9-29 this year.
As luck would have it a friend was sent a pre production model to check out – so enamored was he he emailed me saying he was going to stop by and let me take a look – enamored wasn’t the word, within fifteen minutes I was sold and so began the wait.
I pre ordered from B+H and within 2 days of it’s release I had one in my hands – a 40 megapixel APSC x5 trans sensor and once again Fuji leads the way while other scramble to catch up.
So ….. am I a Fuji fanboy? Damn right I am with no apologies and loving it and what this camera is capable of.
We all have favorites, and nothing wrong with that if it’s what works for us as individuals – but if you should happen to consider replacing or upgrading take a look at Fuji.
Now there’s a little bit of a learning curve associated with X-H2 but as a consumer, enthusiast, or pro assuming you currently own a digital mirrorless spend a little time with it just as you did with your current camera and you’ll be up and running.
Does this Gecko think he’s a Gecko/Chameleon hybrid or just getting ready for Halloween?
Once something makes it’s way into a closet/shed it kinda becomes an out of sight out of mind proposition as was the case with the above – upon “rediscovering” and seeing the need for a little R and R the decision was made to to do just that as it now resides in the house.
Made a lot of things using antlers over the years – everything from light fixtures, drawer pulls, utensils handles, and even furniture – a nice medium to work with.
We’ve all been through tough times and probably will be again – but if you’re reading this that’s anindication your life is better easier than this.
The photo was sent to me by a friend in Yucatan who went there hoping to make a difference. Something we should all try to do.
There are pockets of poverty in this country and every Rez – they in fact exist in every Industrialized nation ……. there’s something very wrong with that.
