I invested into the EOS-M system as soon as it came out (November 2012). The 1st M suffered from poor focusing performance and from that point it was doomed. The M3 was better and now the M5 promises to be much better. The idea of ditching my big ol heavy DSLR and using the M5 mirrorless for sports or portraiture would make me so happy.

So nice to see everyone but I hate the idea of only getting together for funerals.

I’ve been waiting for months and my new camera has finally arrived. Of course I’ve been out sick and it’s killing me to be stuck at home. Anyone interested in buying my M3?

My 5D mk III weights 2.09 lbs and the M5 weights .83 lb. That’s a big difference.

This year I photographed the Veterans Memorial at the Mare Island Cemetery. Sadly these occasions are visited by so few.

Arlene asked if I was interested in seeing the Blue Angels. I already had plans to photograph them but it was a chance to hangout with her.

I shot approx 600 photos and most of them had motion blur. I’m getting old and losing my touch.

This has been on my list for quite some time. Since I was in the area I decided to hit Burney Falls. It was an overcast day but I made do.
