Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Official Tips On Buying A Camera

   Well in this thread, I will explain on how and what tips to used when looking to buy a Digital Camera (Whether its DSLR or a Simple Point And Shoot), Whatever you can think of, this is the thread to read and learn how to buy a digital camera. (And yes the administration of the site approved of me doing this)

   Looking For The Features/Tools You'll Want
Well if you're looking for specific features that you want your camera to have (Which may include HD Video, Panorama Photo) and etc) Then I'll recommend you make sure you include that as for the camera specifications and features. In my opinion though, DO NOT DO Panorama from the camera. It's better to it from you the computer manually because the camera will lower the quality and if you do it on a DSLR, it will make the picture suck (Like really sucks). As for HD Video, I can understand because HD is better video quality and yes a lot of people try to go for HD so thats a reasonable feature. If there's anything I'm missing about this part of the tips, feel free to message me.

   Deciding A Camera Brand(s)   
Next important tip I need to bring up is Deciding a Camera Brand to buy and to keep. Before choosing a camera model or anything you need to decide what Brand or Brands you want to look into. Do some extra research on what Brand interests you, read the reviews on the pros/cons the brand has. Go by what you're interested and like to have (not just for just being fancy). I can't just say “Oh Get a Nikon, Oh Get a Canon, oh this and that ”. No decide among yourselfs what interests you.

   Camera Models
 Now that we know what camera brand(s) to look into and all leads down to deciding a camera model. Do some research on what models you want to try out and where and when you can try them and ask yourself  “If its a reasonable, worth price?” Go to a Camera store (For example B&H) and try out different camera models, Take notes on the weight of the camera, how comfortable the camera is, what suits you the best and narrow it down)

   Your Digital Camera
So when you make your final choice, double check and make sure you really want the camera. As to where to buy the camera's look at different stores/official websites before buying it because certain stores might have it cheaper than others. So if you followed this tip and bought your camera, Have fun with it and learn how to take great photos with it

There will be a separate topic on how to take better photos with your camera really soon. With that said have a great day

And Well the one and only (D)aniel

MTA Fastrack: Norwood-205th Street Bound R68 (D) Train Well Ride: 8th Avenue Local To 116th Street - YouTube

MTA New York City Transit is bringing FASTRACK to the Sixth Avenue Line beginning February 27th following success on the Lexington Avenue Line in January and the Seventh Avenue Line last week. Beginning Monday, February 27, the BDFM Lines will be shut down from10 p.m. until 5 a.m., suspending Sixth Avenue service between 57th Street and West 4th Street in Manhattan in both directions for four consecutive weeknights.

“During the Seventh Avenue FASTRACK closure, work crews from several disciplines were able to accomplish 425 separate tasks efficiently and safely,” said NYC Transit President Thomas F. Prendergast. “We are learning from each FASTRACK operation, and we saw an increase in productivity over and above what we saw last month during the Lexington Ave FASTRACK. In four nights, we were able to accomplish what would normally have taken at least two months to complete,” added Prendergast.

During this FASTRACK, service will operate as follows:

D trains are rerouted and operate in two sections:

D trains will operate between 205th Street and 59th Street-Columbus Circle, then via the C line between 59th Street-Columbus Circle and West 4th Street, then via the F line between West 4th Street and 2nd Avenue, the last stop.

D trains will operate between Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue and 36th Street in Brooklyn, then via the R line between 36th Street and Whitehall Street in Lower Manhattan, the last stop.

F trains operate via the E line between Roosevelt Avenue and West 4th Street in both directions. For service to Lexington Avenue/63rd Street, Roosevelt Island and 21st Street-Queensbridge, customers should take the Q. Q service will be extended to 21st Street-Queensbridge via the F line after 57th Street-7th Avenue.

Manhattan-bound B and M service in Brooklyn and Queens ends at 9:30 p.m. Service in Manhattan is available until 10 p.m.

Customers should use nearby stations and services: ACE2345NQR. Free Shuttle buses provide connecting service between the Grand Street D station and both the Canal Street NQR6 and Broadway-Lafayette DF stations.

By providing a more productive work window, Transit employees will be safer by avoiding the interruptions of repeatedly having to “clear up” for trains going by. In order to accomplish our maintenance tasks we chose four corridors to shut down overnight four times a year between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Those corridors all begin at Manhattan’s Central Business District (CBD):

Lexington Avenue 456 from Grand Central-42nd Street to Atlantic Avenue

Seventh Avenue 123 from 34th Street to Atlantic Avenue

Sixth Avenue BDFM from 59th Street-Columbus Circle to West 4th Street

Eighth Avenue ACE from 59th Street-Columbus Circle to Jay Street-MetroTech

Only subway line segments with substantial subway alternatives are selected for the overnight shutdowns. So, in addition to nearby lines, there may be other lines running that don’t usually operate during the late night hours in order to help accommodate customers. In order to avoid further inconvenience, we will avoid other service diversions in the area affected by the closure. Our next FASTRACK overnight closure will be on the Eighth Avenue ACE lines from 59th Street-Columbus Circle to Jay Street-MetroTech for four consecutive nights beginning Monday, March 12.

This is going to be interested. Is anyone going to railfan this fastrack besides me?

Here's a song cover Daniel Smith (Me) Did of Heal The World - Michael Jackson. All photos shown are pictures of me (Daniel Smith). This is my all time favorite Michael Jackson song. Sorry for being off key on some parts or sounding a little off because I've been taking singing lessons and this video is a test showing how I sound so far so excuse me for some horrible parts.
