Re: July4 in the San Juan Mountians

Hey Jaffer,

What camera are you using? Is it digital? What make/model?
Really nice pictures! I am always looking forward to your trip reports... The nearest scenery similar to this over here in Great Britain, is way up north (Wales, Scotland). Should have emigrated to the States instead of the U.K.

Re: July4 in the San Juan Mountians

Hooch-
The camera is a Kodak DC3400.
It stores lots of pics.
Believe it or not, those pics were taken in the "Medium Resolution" mode so they can get sharper ... they just take a whole lot longer to up load.
The daylight color is always true an the pics need only an occasional lightening and cropping.
It will also do closeups!
I LIKE it...

Re: July4 in the San Juan Mountians

Great photos John. From your description of the ledges on Imogene those Grand seats used to be nice. It sounds like they have some permanent pinch marks on them now. DOH! My friends in Durango have been after me for two years to come down in the summer and go wheeling with them. Just got a new trailer and the rear main seal leak on the Powerstroke has been repaired, so I'm running out of excuses. When I do get down there I will definitely let you know beforehand and spend a day around Aztec and Farmington.

Re: July4 in the San Juan Mountians

Yup. And now I can wheel without my fenders eating my front tires. I'll post a pic later, came out good, haven't decided if I'm going to remount the flares or not.

Re: July4 in the San Juan Mountians

Jaffer,

I've been looking at the Kodak's recently. They sell the DC3200 over here dirt cheap at the moment (about $140). This one has a 1 or 1.2 megapixel ccd. I am sure enough for similar quality pictures. What ccd does the DC3400 have?

Re: July4 in the San Juan Mountians

Hooch-
The DC3400's CCD is 2.1 millions of pixels.
The Picture Resolution is 2.0 millions of pixels in "HIgh" mode and .5 million pixels in "Standard" mode.
I just checked my camera and it was set to "Best" mode afterall.
So what you see is about as good as you get, however, the images were dowloaded directly into Adobe Photoshop and they were saved in the smallest file size "Low" resolution mode since most computer monitors can not display much higer resolution anyway ...

And yes, thanks for straightening me out on the jumper strap thing. It goes to show you not to believe everything you read and that personal investigation is the most sure route to the truth of the matter ... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].

Re: July4 in the San Juan Mountians

Although it was a bit heated at the time, I learned as well. I knew the strap wasn't a regulator, but wasn't too sure how it looked inside till you took the effort to take one apart. It was quite intersting. Trouble is that if you find a gauge second hand in the U.K., you don't rip it apart as they are too hard to come by. Thanks for working it out together...
