Have you considred using Adobe's free program to convert your RAW files to DNG files.
Even old versions of LR support dng files.

A pair of bald eagles are nesting across from Riverbend Park in Great Falls, VA. if you're local, head north on the river trail for about 10 minutes.

Watched the Blue Angels practice run a couple days ago.
The low altitude run was about 800mph.

Sorry to interrupt the awesome photos, but I was wondering if there might be a recommendation for a cheap, waterproof, "dash cam" that has the ability to be wired into 12V (or USB power), and has the "always record and press a button to save the crash" function. And it needs to be cheap (I'll be buying 4 or more of them).

I use a Yi Dashcam. The video is excellent and the build quality is very good.

https://store.yitechnology.com/colle...ct-dash-camera

Dash cams are usually not water proof unless you put into a water proof housing. The camera turns on when the car is started and turns off after the ignition is shut-off. It comes with a power supply and mounting hardware.
Below is a review so you can see the video quality:



You have to buy your own micro-SD card.

I bought directly from the Yi store.

For $39.99, you can't go wrong.

Thanks for the first hand experience with the Yi! I think I'll order one and try it out.

Escaped the rain in Bar Harbor at a restaurant. This is what was happening when I walked back outside. Perfect timing!1526843359164.jpg

I am back from 18 days in Patagonia, and it was quite disappointing. It literally rained on 14 of them, and only about 2 1/2 had sun. I got some good pics, but it would have been so much nicer if the weather had been better. Definitely the worst weather luck I have ever had. An example:

Ouch! sorry about the weather. Just means more time processing.
I remember shooting a high school basketball game inside a fairly dark gym. Had my DSLR set to 3200ASA (ISO for you young'uns). Next day brought my camera to shoot an eagle with chicks in the nest. Got some awesome shots with her flying around and feeding them. Yes, all at 3200ASA!

I guess December/January would be the warmest months down there?

Yes. This was a fall color photo tour.

Ah what a bummer.

I'm intrigued about Chile, not just Macchu Pichu but also Torres del Paine.

But I hear the conditions there could be extreme as well -- high winds as well as being so remote, with limited lodging options.

We were in Torres del Paine. Had one morning of visibility. It would be fabulous in good weather. Not as remote as other areas we were in. There is a bit of tourist support. Lodging is growing.
