NAB: it's a wrap

Howdy from Texas,

I just flew back from Las Vegas, and boy, my arms are tired.

I have a lot of industry-related stuff to report about camcorders and the like, but will have to save all that until the first of the week. This weekend is just for recovering and taking it easy and getting some feeling back in my feet again (they're killing me right now).

The main thing I wanted to take care of right away though, is to say how great it was to meet a lot of folks from the Community boards here, and to make some new friends who haven't joined us yet but have been to (or have been on) the Watchdog before.

From the Community boards, I met Ashley Guy, Michael Rosenberger, Bob Cetti, Paul Snow, Donatello Bonato and Charles Papert. Man, I know I'm forgetting a couple of people, too. Also met a couple of Watchdog contributors, Earle Greenburg and Jim Kinsey. Jim has the page "African Wildlife through an EF Lens" in the Images Gallery. And I saw a bunch of good friends from former shows which of course is always great, especially Les Zellan and the folks from ZGC, one of my sponsors.

A special "howdy" to Charles Papert, who came back to the booth on Wednesday to give me a tape, except I wasn't there. At the last minute, I was dispatched to spend the day at the B&H booth in the new South Hall, about a half-mile walk away. Well Charles, I'm really sorry I had to miss you but I did get the tape from our mutual friend Adam Brooks. Thanks!

I had every intention of making it to the ProMax DV Cafe on Tuesday night, which I had suggested as a meeting place. But earlier that afternoon I found out that I had been invited to dinner with the folks from Tiffen, and it would have been a bad move to miss out on that... but this is the making of another story and I don't know how it's going to end yet. ;-)

The funniest Watchdog-related story I heard from NAB was when Tim Smith of Canon USA told me about the guy who wanted to see "the new camera, the one with the big white lens about this long" (holds hands far apart). Somebody had seen the page in the Images Gallery about how we attached an XL1S body to a Canon 1200mm EOS lens, but wasn't clear on the concept I guess.

Anyway it was a long, grueling week, but I'm really glad I went... now I'm happy to be home. Will throw some stuff together for y'all, in the next few days. Thanks to everyone here and especially the board's wranglers for keeping things going during the meantime!
