  1. I haven’t been there and would like to go, as well. Currently the top spot in my underrated rankings is Capitol Reef.
  2. My guess is he is essentially being forced out early, and will probably call it a sabbatical or something. If they’re able to get Sainz early they will, but it won’t matter since they’re pretty off the pace this year. If they are able to get Sainz early, I’m sure Renault will let Danny go and just being in Fred early.
  3. I have read some rumors of “something happening”. We will see. BTW, does anyone know where The-Race came from? They seemed to pop up during quarantine when they sponsored some sim races, but now they have stuck around and have some pretty big name writers. Did they used to be something else and I missed a name change?
  4. Thanks. FPP sells it but it’s out of stock all the time. You can get it directly from FilmFerrania, though. https://usa.filmferrania.com/products/ferrania-p30-135-36
  5. Ferrania 30 | Canon AE-1 Program | 50mm 1.4 S.S.C. Ferrania is a ridiculously contrasty stock, and it has a really cool backstory that you can learn about here if you’d like: The early batches apparently had some issues, but the new version seems a bit better, though the use case is still limited. It almost feels like I’ll have to treat it like shooting Velvia, except that it’s BW. Some of the scans were pretty extreme, but luckily the shadows were still very well preserved, and since the scans were tiffs, I was able to recover them.
  6. Ferrania P30 | Canon AE-1 Program | 50mm 1.4 S.S.C. that I took apart and cleaned the aperture blades on:
  7. A few film notes. I have since acquired another Canonet G-III and sent it to the same restoration guy and this one is in even better shape than the last one. Almost mint. It even has an original working Canolite flash. I took a chance on a cheap Canon EF on eBay. The EF was a pro/prosumer camera slotted just under the (old) F1. It has a combination of electrically and mechanically controlled shutter, depending on the speed. It has several long exposure speeds (1s, 2s, 4s, 8s, 15s, and 30s). I was able to get them all to function, but the electronically controlled long exposure ones don’t seem accurate all the time. The mechanical ones seem like they’re probably okay. The meter kind of moves but the shutter speed indicator gets stuck in the viewfinder and it seems tired to that and doesn’t really work. It is a notoriously hard camera to repair. I took a stab at repairing the shutter speed indicator, but they loose part is way further in there than I want to get to. I may throw some light seals in it and try a roll using sunny 16 and the mech speeds only. It is a tank of a camera, though. I guess I’ll just have to get an F1.
  8. Canyon Village is still accessible, but between there and Tower Junction is completely closed. You can still access Uncle Tom’s, Artist Point, Inspiration Point, etc. I think previously they had it open from CV to Dunraven Pass or so, but not anymore.
  9. I typically use FinerWorks. They’re a Texas company (San Antonio) and I have been happy with their quality. They don’t really advertise, but are the cheapest I have seen. They also have many fine art paper options to choose from. If you can wait for a sale it can be pretty cheap. Their metal prints are good too, but I think I like metal prints from Pure Art Printer a little better.
  10. Alonso coming back to Renault in 2021 to race in the midfield.
  11. As a good middle ground, I really like the Salomon X Ultra Mids. I have the GTX ones and use them when I go backpacking. They are not as stiff as a real boot, but offer good ankle support and are pretty lightweight for what they are. Very comfortable, too. For day hikes and stuff I typically wear the XA Pro 3D.
  12. That was some poor strategy by Mercthere. They never seem to be able to do the right thing under the SC. Also, we need full-time stewards. The inconsistency is maddening.
  13. Hybrid will be 3.5EB only, IIRC.
