  1. Veterans Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11, for honoring military veterans, that is, persons who have served in the United States Armed Forces (and were discharged under conditions other than dishonorable).[1][2] It coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day which are celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. At the urging of major U.S. veteran organizations, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in 1954. Veterans Day is distinct from Memorial Day, a U.S. public holiday in May. Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who have died while in military service.[3] There is another military holiday, Armed Forces Day, a U.S. remembrance that also occurs in May, which honors those currently serving in the U.S. military.

  13. A very special place I visited a while ago. Used to be Ansel Adam's playground.
  14. Nikon says its coming flagship model will introduce new technologies to enhance performance and reliability. I wonder what it is gonna be. My D5 seems to be impossible to be improved, except for its weight. Would it be capable of seeing through walls? Or behind people's clothes? lol Anyway, for sure it will not be for me, because for my kind of photography these mirrorless are more than enough. The D5 is my last DSLR.
  15. It comes with a beautiful case. If you want just the case, you could buy it for US$ 1000!!! How crazy is that!
  16. Yes, but there is a lot of new possibilities in it.
  17. US$ 7999.95....... ouch!!!! I'm so curious to try it, but at this price tag.... https://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/product/mirrorless-lenses/nikkor-z-58mm-f%2f0.95-s-noct.html?icid=img_en_us:homepage:slot:2a:Z:noct:101019:z50wwa

    Thank you for looking.
  21. This picture is more than 30 years old. Ektachrome was used here. We never had Kodachrome in Brazil. Very early in the morning I saw the church lit by this beautiful warm light and got my camera the next day to take the image. One of the few times I did that. Thank you for looking.
  22. Thank you for the comments. I just would like to say that this small and non scientific comparison is to share some material for comparison, taking in account the different gears/parameters. I know it is not perfect but you can see the actual results taken from a regular photographer. I can't find such kind of tests very often and I want to decide if I move to mirrorless or not.
  23. The target here is to compare grain and sharpness. Both cameras with Auto2 WB (keep warm lighting colors). Aperture auto. Strangely Z6 chose 1/640 s and the D5 1/1000 s. Z6 and 14-30mm f/4S @ f/4 and 14mm. D5 and 14-24mm f/2.8G @ f/4 and 14mm. Overall picture: D5 Z6 100% Center: D5 Z6 200% Corner: D5 Z6
