Carl,
Check out Pentax and the specs.

Panasonic is another good brand. (Lumix GH5 4K)

...and the list goes on.

I had about 6 paragraphs typed and twice I hit the wrong key(s). Time for bed.

I'm pretty sure optical glass comes from a limited number of manufactures and by 2000 computer manufacture of lenses was pretty mature. Just my experience. And it was all Canon EOS mount. If they had a Fujifilm mount I wouldn't think twice about picking one up for mine. Next lense for me is 100 - 400 4.5 -5.6 Fuji x mount. Also water resistant.

Much of what goes into pro level cameras is in body construction. Titanium - or not pro like mine of Magnisium Alloy - or just high impact plastic etc.

Carl - did ya notice on the Fuji camera preset modes of Velvia and Provia. I shot those all the time. It's a good start for a digital pic. Mine doesn't shoot raw.
Dennis has a Fuji camera and it has Nikon lenses.

Check on the ability to update by SD Card. You could go to any public library and use their system to download the update. (I think) Or, one of your many friends computers. (Whew! I escaped that one.)

If you have an iPad or Android Tablet and WiFi Transfer it might be done that way.

Good morning..... gotta share this excerpt from a friend,s blog..... it,s kinda a Bless her heart type things....


Good Manners in Enchanted Habitat

A friend who grew up in California and moved here observes that we in Enchanted Habitat have at least three nicenesses she’s never noticed anywhere else.

One, I have named the Mandatory Entryway Compliment (MECompliment).
When we as a guest enter someone else’s home, we always, somewhere near the front door, find a way to say something that sounds admiring about the place. Such as, “Oh your yard is so nice!” or “Oh, hardwood floors are so wonderful, aren’t they!” Women usually include the exclamation points. Also, even if it is the tenth time we’ve been there we find still again something else nice to say, or at least find a new way to say a previous thing.

Only if the householder might be our mother or BFF might we exempt ourselves from the MECompliment.

Or if we want to be covertly rude.

Next, there is Making Small Talk About The Weather (MSTATWeather). My grandmother taught me how to do it and why, and this ability has served me all my life. But it only works in the company of people who also know how to do it. Unfortunately not everyone does. It would help us if more did. It takes at least two to tango here, and if you are the only one doing MSTATWeather, and the others think instead that what you are doing is really talking about the weather, then you’re going to get some odd looks if you persist.

(Never expect a Californian to MSTATWeather. California doesn’t have weather to begin with. Here, we have real grist for the mill.)

The reason for MSTATWeather is the same as one of the reasons for MECompliment: it gives people something socially safe to talk about. Further, MSTATWeather can be counted on as an inexhaustible subject if need be. The MECompliment is not meant to last as a discussion topic, and is is about five degrees toward personal, so you have to be a tad careful. But the MECompliment is the one that also has secondary purpose. When you say a MECompliment to your host/ess, you are sending a clear signal that your feeling about them is positive–without being obsequious. Is that a clever folkway, or what!

Our third niceness reported by my friend, I call Never Taking The Last Piece (NTTLPiece). No one ever taught me NTTLPiece, I just always knew it. I assume it is a genetically transmitted behavior. The last hors d’oeuvre, the last ear of corn, the last glassful of wine in the bottle, the last spoonful of the mashed potatoes. No matter how much we secretly want it, we will decline it. And then there it is, one lonely little serving that the hostess has to do something with after everyone goes. Unless someone in the party was not from here.

My Californian friend tole me this true story:
After a potluck, one little square of exquisite homemade lemon bar remained. A woman was trying to get someone, anyone, to take it. This woman genuinely didn’t want it herself, and she was not from here originally. My Californian friend said to her, “You’re not going to get anyone to take that. They’re all from here and they never take the last piece of anything.” The woman said, “Oh God, that’s why my husband does that!”

For the number of times you do firmware updates, I'd ask someone to "borrow" their laptop for 15 minutes. Just not worth it for such a rare need. Probably doesn't even matter if it's Mac/Windows as manufacturers generally support both platforms.

It's too late in the eastern half of the country, but further west, the sun hasn't set yet, so:

Today has been Sun Screen Day!

I'll try to do better tomorrow. 🤓

Sue, do did a great job in the Seattle area! It was sunny and high 70s. Oh wait, Mother Nature did that -- you were just warning us to wear sunscreen. I used to blister after just 15 minutes in the sun, but after age 55 all that changed. I don't even sunburn anymore, just tan, and wrinkle.

I figured I was a prime candidate for skin cancer since my Dad and younger brother have both had minor skin cancers removed. When I went for my skin cancer screening in March the dermatologist said, "Keep doing what you've been doing." And that is nothing. And so I shall.

If I'm near by I can format any SD card for Windows or MAC with my MAC and download the EXE file instead of the DMG file.

All's quiet on the midwestern front. Enjoying my morning coffee and then off to church. After church we're having our anniversary celebration. A couple of weeks early but schedules in the family required it. It will be fun.

We are truly blessed to be able to enjoy our relationship for all of these years. I'm soooooo lucky to find a lady that understands "stupid" and ignores 90% of my antics. I can honestly say that it's been a wonderful ride.

And the answer's yes. I did marry Mary Ann when she was 6.

Healing ohms to all that need them. That includes your loved ones.

We're down in Ft Worth staying at FT Worth RV Park. It's a very new park and it has great Wi-Fi. I frequently comment on bad Wi-Fi in parks but this place has done a great job with setting it up. You get a free service that great for email and normal web surfing. If you want to stream videos, they provides a couple of higher speed options for a couple bucks/night.

Later today we move over to Holiday Texas, a US Army Corp of Engineers site on a lake shore.
