Back in 2015, I reviewed a Nikon camera called the Coolpix P900, which is a “bridge camera.”I wasn’t familiar with the term then, but I am now. A bridge camera is a bridge between a point-and-shoot camera and a DSLR, or digital single-lens reflex camera.Back then, I thought the P900 was a pretty darn good camera with a lens that had an 83x optical zoom, or the equivalent of a 24 millimeter-2,000 mm lens on a 35mm camera.My bottom-line thought on the P900 was that it was all the camera most of us would ever need.I guess Nikon thought I was wrong, because I’ve been testing the new Nikon Coolpix P1000 ($999, www.nikonusa.com), and it’s bigger and better than the P900 in almost every way possible.Meet the new bossThe P1000 is like the P900 on steroids.

The president spent Election Day calling allies, tweeting endorsements and following news coverage, after concluding a six-day rally blitz in Missouri late Monday. Trump packed his closing argument with hardline immigration rhetoric and harsh attacks on Democrats as he stared down the prospect of Republican losses that could shadow his presidency. “Everything we have achieved is at stake,” he said. “Because they can take it apart just as fast as we built it.” Faced with the possibility of keeping the Senate, but losing the House, aides have begun laying out the political reality to Trump, who could face an onslaught of Democratic-run investigations and paralysis of his policy agenda. In turn, Trump has already been trying out defensive arguments, noting that midterm losses are typical for the … [Read more...] about Trump views midterms through presidency-defining lens

Mainland Greece 1950“The photograph fulfils my deep need to stop things from disappearing. It makes transience less painful and retains some of the special magic, which I have looked for and found.
