I have a PN-40 and really like it. Delorme has the best price on map updates. The few things that bugs me have been fixed in the PN-60. I like is the map program but wish it ran on a Mac. It's the only reason I still have a Windows computer.

I cut a PN cable down and run it off the bikes 12v using a USB converter. I also made a mount for it when I had the KLR, I'm going to make a nicer this winter.

Yes, one on each crash bar. Bought them @ my local tractor suppply shop for 5$ each and attached with some rubberized pipe hangers from MaMaster Carr.

The flash is a Metz AF48. I rarely use it, and don't know why I lug it around on trips like this. This night scene could have been painted with a flashlight during the 25 second exposure with similar success. This was trial and error. I got this pic on the 3rd try, I think. If I remember correctly I popped the flash from several angles on the right, ran to the tent and popped it twice inside, and ran to the left side for another 2-3 flashes. The scene was already pretty well lit by a bright moon, which acounts for most of the visible shadows.

All of these pics are from my current report in Day Trippin' : Trouble in John's Canyon... Again! (AZ-UT Autumn Tour)

I don't even own Photoshop. I post-process with Lightroom 3. The previous photo is an HDR, 3 exposures merged in Photomatix Pro. The HDR process can create the effect you noticed. But what's the problem? We all line up to pay to see the latest CGI special effects at the movie theater, but a still photo is suddenly taboo if there is a suspicion it looks photoshopped? Do you really prefer a drab pic with no color or contrast straight from the camera? If you do, you are letting the camera decide how to post-process your pic, instead of taking control yourself. The camera does not capture and process light the same way our eyes and brain does. A picture is never exactly like we see it. That photo is impossible to properly expose without using HDR since the bike and foreground is in the shadows and the sky and mountains are very bright, but your eyes can see this scene. If I used a single shot exposed for the sky the bike would be a silhouette, which is not reality either.

...and sometimes reality sucks!



BTW KatyM, I love your country and have visited many times.

No problem what so ever, the instant I saw that pic it was *right click* *set background as* thats when I noticed the shine.
I didn't mean to be rude I just wondered.

Sorry if my rant offended at all. It was mainly directed towards the legions of people, many pro photographers included, who use the term photoshop as a dirty word implying fakeness, and also love to hate the use of HDR techniques.

I think good HDR is when you can't tell HDR was used. But that is just me. The thing that looks odd is there are no shadows. Non by the bike or the clumps of grass. Looks like the bike is floating. It's still a good shot. And I like how you turn the mirrors out. I'll have to remember that.

jconyer, some of that is God given talent, just because you have a great camera doesn't mean you will take great pictures. But is sure does help. There are a lot of great cameras out there and they are getting cheaper. This spring I got a Canon G12 and love it. I hardly carry my 1D and L lenses any more.

Some of these shots were taken with a fisheye. That is why the mirrors look turned out.
