Murray Street Tag

But dry at the time I went outside the Murray Street Store. Sometimes you can luck it. The opportunity to try the new-to-me Nikon Z-fc was too good to miss, so I took the spare SD card out of the gadget bag and plugged it in. Thus was the point at which the Nikon muscle memory kicked in and I was able to dive into the menu and format it. That's not just bumpf. A lot of cameras operate on menus and instruction sets that have been devised by their own staff. They may have configured the things quite differently from those of other makers, and it can be an Indiana Jones adventure to try to find the pathway in the menu that will lead you to the command you wish to exercise. Quite a few camera makers employ poison dart shooters and giant stone balls to discourage you from finding their treasures. Just getting to " format " can be a feat.

The only exception is the Leica boutiques and they are remarkably similar wherever you see them - here's one in the QVB building in Sydney. Magnificant setting but still very Leica Boutique inside. By the way, if you want Leica, save yourself a trip. Buy it here. You have two walls of red 'n black at Stirling or Murray. But onto the back wall - it has lost the old ex-library wooden hutches and is a flash new white metal surface with dedicated attachments and a bright clean finish. As you can see, Saul, complete...
