  1. Thanks for the good vibes...nice of you to reach out...being a ways away from the big city things aren't too bad here in the PacNW...spending LOTS of time with family, training the new rescue puppy and just trying to finger out which way will be up when we get to the other side... Take care and best to you and yours. ...Ric
  2. Hi Jez... I have the newer F8n and they've changed out the battery "system" so it no longer uses the "sleds"...from what I gather frequency of exactly this kind of failure was the reason... Looked at BH and they have them in stock for $25.00...but as you mentioned shipping overseas is a mess right now...I'm 3 weeks into a pkg from Canada and 5 weeks into a pkg from Portugal...Maybe BH has a better relationship with the shipping companies... Good luck...and yes, they're really nice units for the cost ...Ric
  3. My Sony PacNW rep is a really helpful sort..even though he's primarily Pro Imaging he should be able to dig into this for you...tell him I said hi... Glenn Weinfeld Sr. Imaging PRO Support Rep – Nor.Cal./Northwest Professional Imaging Support - IPSA Sony Electronics, Inc Glenn.Weinfeld@Sony.com (858) 371-1364 good luck...Ric
  4. Thanks...looking forward to seeing/hearing what you think when you get a chance... BTW: want to echo your experience with NoHype and JPG...almost immediate, friendly yet professional responses to emails and a tracking # really quickly after pushing the pay button...seems like any after sales questions will be handled well. Shutdown has really hurt my wallet as I have more time to indulge my G.A.S. 😜
  5. Jim...any first impressions yet? (I have a pair in the mail now) Thanks...Ric

  7. If you need a foster home for a couple out west of Seattle give me a shout... We currently have 2 rescue dogs (Border Collie/Wolf and Border Collie/Pit) and 4 rescue cats on 5 wooded (fenced) acres...plenty of running/playing room...trainable hoomans ;-) ...Ric
  8. What I've been hearing is that you do still need to file on time and that there's a 90 day grace period to pay what you owe w/o penalty or interest...They said no change in the filing date because you can do it online... I've heard about the push for mortgage payment deferrals (and student loans, credit cards, parking tix etc) but haven't actually verified... As fast as the stories are changing you'll want to verify with IRS or an accountant... ...Ric
  9. (But Live Nation says they will still hold all their live shows? ) Maybe they know that their attendees will be self medicating...

  11. Glad to see the donate button still works...I was turned onto the site about a month ago by Rob Davis (thanks Rob) and have been on the site everyday since...as a 45+ year camera guy I appreciate the spirit of sharing here (and the humor 😉 Thanks...Ric (www.ricphoto.com)
