As it continues, The Wild Fire in Durango, Colorado (Lightner Creek Fire)

Nighttime hit Durango and the wild fire was still going. Managed to get some shots from Fort Lewis College, which is still a safe place to be. The town is safe, most of the fire is happening in the outskirts. For more information and updates about the fire, I suggest visiting the Durango Herald.

As of June 29th, 2017 at 1pm the fire is expected to grow. Air Tankers and Bull Dozers arriving from Denver are expected. Lightner Creek Fire is declared a disaster emergency. Fire is moving towards Perins Peak.

Nikon D3s vs D800 vs GX85

So…  Why older tech? Because right now, you can purchase a D3s for around $1400 USD. It has 9 FPS with constant AF. What other 35mm Full Frame can be purchased at this time for that price?

Fuji XT2 is fast, but the lag on the EVF is cumbersome when doing high speed action. You have to get familiar with it, I couldn’t. Sony cameras? not good for high speed action AF.

There is a market for High End DSLR and thats mostly photo journalists that rely on the impressive AF that these cameras have.

I believe I’m mastering the low noise high ISO at 25600, look at these files and see for yourself, they don’t look as bad as most people have around the web.

I will be making a comparison to a Sony A7sII and Nikon D3s.
