Labor Day is in the rearview mirror, and for many of us who enjoy four seasons, summer has ended. Oh, sure, she’ll linger for a little while like a damp firecracker that spurts one last courageous spark and then sits there threatening to pop—but she’s spent, and she’s truly unable to produce another bang. Soon she’ll simply whimper and limp away, gray and exhausted, same as last year. She has been worn out by too many rainbows and too many long, warm, peaceful nights full of stars and hopes and dreams. Summer doesn’t fade—she steps into the shadows to catch her breath.

If you shoot video with a DSLR or camcorder that uses SD memory cards, be sure to use a card that is fast enough. Since the introduction of SDHC, cards are labeled with a Speed Class that indicates the sustained data transfer speed. Class 2 cards deliver a sustained read/write speed of 2MB per second. Class 6 operate at 6MB/sec. It’s an easy standard to understand.

Pentax K-x

It could be that the good people at Pentax have gone batty. They put way too much stuff in the new Pentax K-x camera. It’s priced slightly above the most expensive compact cameras (in the sub-$600 range with a Pentax 18-55mm zoom lens) and is offered in three colors (red, white and blue) plus basic black.

After more than 40 years of actively taking photographs, I’m very pleased that I can say that I am still finding new things to do—including many exciting things I’ve never done before.
