  1. I like the word - EFFECT - your magnification does not change of the glass. I love the 6D - head and shoulders above the 40D I was using. Shoot back in the day I thought the REBEL and 10D were the shiznit....lol AGREED ! However the step up in pixels from the 40D APS to the Full frame 6D was for me - a HUGE difference. I almost had a 50MM 1.2L given to me - Avigilon surveillance bodies can take Canon EF mount lenses - I almost had one at ISC West last year - but the guy who was giving it to me, his boss stepped in and was like NOPE....the body was a demo and not pristine but the glass was perfect... grrr.... The SIGMA 50MM 1.4 is nice as well and I do think the 50MM 1.4 Canon USM is underrated.... I get a kick of wearing a MAGPUL single point sling with the camera and usually get looks from those in the know...lol Most of the orange county sheriffs just nod when they notice it when I am at Disney....ha !
  2. Beautiful pic..... Lens focal length and magnification do not change based on the crop sensor... 600mm is still 600mm....in glass. I went to a full frame 6d..... compared to.images i was taking with a 40D ....there is no comparison.... I was using a sigma 30mm 1.4 on the 40D...and now a 1.4 Canon USM.... head and shoulders above...not so much glass but sensor. The body does the 24-105 canon L justice...for a kit lens its pretty good. My daughter swears by her 50mm Sigma
  3. .....yea all farts have particulate matter.......if they smell...makes you winder when in public...and some douche rips one and you smell it...his sh*t is in your nose.....
  4. Tested !!!!! Yes....and no.... wings and lager farts 100%... veggie farts no. .....it sure the hell is !!!!
  5. ......do you know how seasonal allergies work? Did you bother to inquire how i got there...? By two wheels mask less... Do you understand that there is residual allergens in the nasal cavity prior to mask donning....i do not a travelling neti pot...lol Dude rise above have some decorum...if the word putz offends you go have a drink...sheesh
  6. Guys loses three CLOSE people and you call it hype...... There are no words...other than maybe clueless and shameful.
  7. I have seasonal allergies - I had to go to a jobsite this past week in LIC - the old citibank building to look at some security stuff - I was masked up.... Regular blue kinda surgical mask - I sneezed then coughed in the mask.... excused myself to go the men's room to clean up wash hands etc. Guess what - the inside of the mask had a big goober kinda saliva thing and some dampness on the inside, the outside was guess what - dry. I bagged it - put on a new mask washed hands etc. I am relatively certain - if I did not have a mask on - some of my sneeze cough could have been put into the air in and around the others I was with - i think it did its job along with my elbow crease... Put on the mask - even if it helps a little when you are around other people (strangers)
  8. I *think* there is a 16 sitting at mastodon in highland lakes... 764 9550
  9. For mask wearing or against? Apples and oranges to a degree... smoking and drinking destroy many lives in society, but it is mostly voluntary abuse. We can go off on a tangent here very quickly...as the thread in totality has done - sadly. Well, there is fine bourbon, or a well crafted beer.... ! That is so true, many nation states have abused their citizens under the guise of safety...I am not sure this is an equivalency. Comparing an ordinary citizen to doctors and nurses - in any kind of mask debate - is silly. The level of exposure doctors and nurses have to the pathogen in question, is probably statistically much higher than the average jane or John doe....hence potential failure of said PPE. When others abject arrogance and denial of a situation may cause direct harm to my family - i have a problem with that. Again, to all the non mask wearing he man macho men, sign up for the COVID trials....! Its all a rouse to get the big bad orange man...right? 100% true.... because they didn't have anywhere near enough and had to quell panic. Take this all a step further.....don't take anything at face value...ya ever think they all know much much and so much more - that they are NOT saying? I do. The entire worlds societies are teetering at a brink - you can very quickly and easily descend into anarchy......if pushed... this virus, even if brought under control is not the end by a long shot. This is the impetus for a complete fracturing of the global fabric of nations. Whomever designed it, and they did, whomever dropped it, and they did. Has a bigger plan that has not shown its face...yet. I have two or three distinct opinions on it, but they are most interesting while having a bourbon. Mask no mask, rich not rich,, liberal conservative, smart or dumb - we all will be lucky to get through this....in one piece..and it has nothing to do with whether you catch the virus or not
  10. Nah - those analytics are written and the mask is a non issue...at the .GOV level. for the totality of the surveillance package.
  11. *then*, brother you should then know that a little mask to help your countrymen and this nation get over this - even if it a little help - you should be all in. My answer is that, *if* the simple request to wear a mask in public in order to attempt to limit the spread of this virus is requested and or mandated - I think we owe it to this country and our fellow citizens, that we do it. The whole element of the population here that think this is nothing - I think they should register for the HUMAN CHALLENGE TRIALS... https://www.thecovidchallenge.org/ Hey it is NO BIG DEAL ! It is a SCAM ! It is a political HIT JOB on big bad orange guy - they are all such big shots and there is nothing to fear - sign up, lick a subway pole in Manhattan, or go volunteer to pick up the dead. Cause it is a big nothing burger. The Master is humanity and consideration for your fellow man - if that is the Master you should gladly serve it, in this minor way. There is so much fail here - I am not sure even where to begin - you are all getting your panties in a bunch now because of the mask wearing...?? Again - if this is such a nothing burger, go to an emergency room and stand next to the sickest looking bloke you see and take a nice deep breath as he is coughing, get inoculated....then report back in anywhere from 5 to 14 days....go ahead we'll wait... Oh and back to the Franklin quotation - read this interpretation: "It is a quotation that defends the authority of a legislature to govern in the interests of collective security" Put on a mask and stop being a baby -
  12. I have done it plenty of times....no bracelets so far....
  13. Clue Less A simple mask is an insult to you and a limitation of your freedom? You sadly have lived a charmed life and do not know what restriction of freedom is....luckily i do not either.... but i work with some that did..... and i hear their stories..... So...Ok then...... The cavalier attitude to a public health crisis is kind of amazing actually...but wait...there isn't one right? Its all a ploy to get the big bad orange man? Its just a bad flu, right? You mean when i ask the ex nypd guys in security i deal with at a local ny hospital, if this is real or not....and they say very.....they are making up the 5 to 7 refrigerated trailers stacked almost 60 to 70 deep of bodies every day..of all ages..are lying? You mean the ER..doc who says he see just as many otherwise healthy young people come in with a cough and shortness of breath and are dead in 3 days..is a sham? It can't be that a volunteer fire fighter on LI i know saw three members die of it...one in a short as ten hours..cant be true, right??? But a mask is an infringement of your rights....while your country men die around you.... you frankly should be ashamed imo....you should be willing to do what you can to help protect your fellow countrymen.........if that means were a mask, even if it helps a little....you should. Btw your Franklin quote doesnt mean what you think it means in the context of the letter he wrote in 1755.....an interpretation is here.... read the letter its online...its ...umm interesting. WITTES: The exact quotation, which is from a letter that Franklin is believed to have written on behalf of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, reads, those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. SIEGEL: And what was the context of this remark? WITTES: He was writing about a tax dispute between the Pennsylvania General Assembly and the family of the Penns, the proprietary family of the Pennsylvania colony who ruled it from afar. And the legislature was trying to tax the Penn family lands to pay for frontier defense during the French and Indian War. And the Penn family kept instructing the governor to veto. Franklin felt that this was a great affront to the ability of the legislature to govern. And so he actually meant purchase a little temporary safety very literally. The Penn family was trying to give a lump sum of money in exchange for the General Assembly's acknowledging that it did not have the authority to tax it. SIEGEL: So far from being a pro-privacy quotation, if anything, it's a pro-taxation and pro-defense spending quotation. WITTES: It is a quotation that defends the authority of a legislature to govern in the interests of collective security. It means, in context, not quite the opposite of what it's almost always quoted as saying but much closer to the opposite than to the thing that people think it means.
