Ek is verstom, as daai foon nou al sulke fotos kan neem asook die apple gaan hulle ewensieel die dslr kamera doodmaak.
Dslr gaan tien teen een net n plek he onder entoesiaste soos ek is (miskien nie heeltemal maar ek voel soos een) en dan die profesionele manne wat troues en gedoentes afneem.
Gun wonder ek lees die ander dag van Fuji was nou hulself toespits op die mediese bedryf en tans die 'optical leaders' in die veld is.
Regtig mooi fotos - my Samsung foon neem nie so mooi nie maar dis nou meer n budged tipe.

Die nuwe Samsung S8 het 16MP kamera... :eek7:

Lekker ritte DL.  :thumleft:
May the bridges I burn light the way...

Thanks Big Oil, would Google Translate help to read the Afrikaans?  I never find their translations much good but it helps to sort of get the gist of what's being written.  I read on AdvRider that the guys are crying this bike never went to the US.  Strange the decisions manufacturers sometimes make on our behalf.

If you ever get out to South Africa and you want to ride the Karoo, give me a shout and come stay over.  You know the basics already: braai, lekker, moerse, and so on  :biggrin:

An American fellow, Jim Hooper (author of Koevoet), remarked he found Afrikaans fairly easy to follow as every 3rd word was fokken

Yeah, Google Translate leaves me with scrambled sentences, but like you say, I can usually figure out what is being said. 

Yeah, we Americans have been whining for the Tenere' 660 for years, though Yamaha doesn't listen.  Perhaps it is because of the costs involved to get a bike EPA Certified.

It was interesting to read about the Poplar trees that originated from North America.  I'm happy to see they thrive in the South African climate.

I appreciate the offer on visiting, I sure hope to make a trip over there someday. 

And, braai was the first Afrikaans word I learned :lol8:

I'll be looking forward to more of your pics and reports, Mr. Dorsland!
