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.

    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
