I did it. I'm switching from Canon to Fuji. Well, not entirely, I only ordered a few little things, a couple of cheap lenses, a flash unit and some accessories. The big guns are still in the cart at DWI. Btw, I'm testing 2 new suppliers of grey…

I almost didn't go. Took a long time to be persuaded to go to the USA. When I was making plans for the trip, I allowed 3 days for New York. I thought it would be plenty and I wanted to see more of the rural area of the States. Also wanted to…
