I hope everyone had a good weekend and everyone that wanted to was able to take advantage of the free print from the Canon rep on Saturday at Bedfords. The prints we got were really good and if I hadn’t bought Marilyn one last year, I would have picked up one. A couple were sold to AOPC members while I was there, so you might check with them at the next meeting to get their opinion of the quality.
Here’s what I put on FB this AM…

Todd Sadowski, a new AOPC member, has had a lot of problems recently with Nikon’s new D600. You can read about Todd’s problems here: http://toddphotos.wordpress.com/2013/01/14/my-nikon-nightmare-the-d600-part-4/.
Check out Nikon’s official statement below:
Some D600 users have reported the appearance of random spots on their images which is generally attributed to the natural accumulation of dust.
While understanding that dust will occur over time, and steps may be taken to reduce the occurrence, the complete elimination of these dust spots may sometimes be difficult.
It has come to our attention that, in some rare cases, they may be reflected noticeably in images and removal may be difficult using normal measures. Therefore, Nikon is informing users of a service to reduce this issue.
As a first step, please follow the guidance from the D600 User’s Manual (pages 301-305) related to the Clean Image Sensor function and manual cleaning using a blower bulb.
If these measures do not remove all dust particles and you are still experiencing problems, then please consult your nearest Nikon service center. The technicians will examine the camera thoroughly, and service it as needed.
See the following for instructions on requesting service by a Nikon service center.
Please direct inquiries regarding this matter to your nearest Nikon service center.
We hope that you will continue to choose Nikon for your photographic needs.
Todd told me at the Club meeting on Thursday, that he swapped out his D600 for a D800 at Bedfords that day. I hope the D800 works better for him than his nightmares with the D600.
There is a wonderful Edward Weston exhibit on display at the Arkansas Arts Center. For more info check out this link: http://www.arkarts.com/exhibitions/current_exhibitions/Leaves_of_Grass.asp
Here’s a quick note to let you know that the Trumpeter Swans are no longer wintering at Magness Lake in Heber Springs. I took a trip up there today and saw nothing but ducks. Bon voyage…
