This was the first shot I took, on the way to the refuge.

I had set my Canon to raw + large jpeg, and the first night I proceeded to look at my photos on my laptop. I didn't have a raw converter on this laptop, but both copies of the photos showed up, as jpegs. They were identical files with the size also being equal. With my home PC, the raw files won't even show up as thumbnails until after they have been converted. So, since I wanted raws more than jpegs, I changed the camera to just raws for the last day. When I dumped them into my home PC, both the raws and jpegs showed up from the first files. Conclusion? The USB cable that came with the camera does not read raw files. I needed the card reader. I just thought that was interesting and good info to have.

That RT pops against a sweet BG! It appears to be a young bird as the eyes are still light in clor.

Looks like you had a heck of a trip Mike. I like what you've captured and I'm not seeing the noise I was awhile ago from your shots.

That is a really nice shot X. Did you install the drivers for your camera on your computer? If you hook the cable to the computer from your camera it will need drivers in order to be recognized.

I didn't realize that. However, the computer recognized the cable and would let me copy them to the hard drive, just wouldn't recognize the raw files.

Weird, do you have the latest version of your RAW converter? Is your software a bit older, some older programs are not supporting newer files.

My 50D RAW files are not recognized in CS2. Adobe won't update the older software, they want you buy CS4. mad

One more reason I like JPEG as a universal format and don't like RAW as a storage option. Virtually every program and computer knows what they are. RAW is problematic.

Come to think of it, I don't have the RAW converter installed on this laptop. Duh! It's an older laptop I just take with me when I'm on the road. I guess that would make the difference.

PSE 5.0 was supposed to be the same for the D90, but I followed the instructions for the RAW converter update for 6.0 but installed it in 5.0 and now I have the RAW converter. Not Sure if the CS2 uses a drag and drop to move the new converter into the program or if it takes an install wizard, elements does not use the wizard. Might be worth a shot to look into it.

Doesn't work, Adobe came right out and said no support for older programs and they made sure it didn't. Its no big deal I just use DPP which supposedly works better with 50D files, save as a tiff or jpeg and import in CS2 for tweaking. Just can't use Adobe.

That's too bad. They had said the same thing about elements, but I thought I'd give it a try and it worked for me. I still picked up Capture NX anyway It works better with Nikon cameras.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.

    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
