Cannon: Season 1, Vol. 1
The weekly adventures of Frank Cannon, an overweight, balding ex-cop with a deep voice and expensive tastes in culinary pleasures, who becomes a high-priced private investigator. Since Cannon's girth didn't allow for many fist-fights and gun battles (although there were many), the series substituted car chases and high production values in their place.87% (8)
William Conrad became television's first plus-sized detective in this Quinn Martin production that ran for six seasons. His girth makes him the butt of snide comments. In the episode, "Salinas Jackpot," a good 'ol boy invites Cannon to shoot a game of pool. Referring to The Hustler, he says, "Ever since I seen that movie, I've always wanted to take on a champion fat man." In the pilot episode, a little boy bluntly asks him, "How'd you get that fat?" But the balding, pipe-smoking Cannon has a style all his own (check out his boating shorts in the episode, "A Lonely Place to Die."). Fleeing miscreants may be just as surprised as viewers at just how fleet he is on his feet in a chase. The pilot episode fleshes out Cannon's backstory: He is a former Los Angeles cop-turned-private insurance investigator. He is introduced in his swank apartment (that comes complete with personal firing range), but the rest of the episodes find him in outlying locations that are at odds with his bon vivant lifestyle. Though expensive and "the best," he does handle desperate personal cases, as in the pilot episode, in which his investigation of a Korean War buddy's death leads him to "a town that reeks of bad money." Cannon is nothing but intuitive. He tracks down the bar from which a threatening phone call was made by noting the sound of a phone booth ceiling fan's faulty bearing. His imposing size, gruff manner, and blunt talk do not win him many friends. "Go back where you came from" is a representative greeting from those who don't want to be bothered by "the fella with all the questions." Among the most compelling episodes include "Death Chain," in which a married man turns to Cannon when his mistress is murdered, and "Stone Cold Dead," in which he defends a Viet Nam veteran falsely accused of murder. Cannon has no sidekick or office staff to banter with, but Conrad deftly carries the show on his hefty shoulders. Guest stars of note include Vera Miles, Earl Holliman, Keenan Wynn, and John "Tigger" Fiedler in the pilot, Tom Skerritt as a killer disguised as a rodeo clown in "Jackpot," and a pre-Star Wars Mark Hamill as a farm boy in "Country Blues." While Cannon may not rank in the pantheon of TV detectives, it's good to have him back pounding the beat on DVD. --Donald Liebenson
My Nikon twins :-) : D5100 on left - D3100 on right
The D5100 on the left has a 10-24mm lens mounted, and the D3100 on the right has a 70-300mm lens mounted. I have been taking photos since I was exposed to a Nikon F-1 35mm Single Lens Reflex (SLR) film camera when I was in 5th grade (got to look way back in the rear view mirror to share that info). Photography has been one of my 'hobbies" since then, following me through college, the military, as well as my personal life. However, I now desire photography to be more than a novice hobby, and I want to market my photography professionally (global urban travel, landscapes, and jazz culture will be my focus). I used Nikon (F2) and Cannon (EF) SLR film cameras for years. I crossed the bridge from film to digital imaging when I purchased a Sony Mavica (MVC-FD5) in 1998 - that device had a 1 Megabyte 3.5 inch floppy disk for image storage. Being a systems design, build, and test engineer, I was hooked. I have used various compact digital cameras (Nikon/Sony/Olympus) over the years, waiting for Nikon to provide an (affordable) entry market Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera. In mid 2007, I purchased a Nikon D-40 DSLR kit with 18-55mm lens (later purchased a Nikkor 55-200mm DX lens) - this gave me an opportunity to familiarize myself with the navigation and use of software and hardware available for DSLR imaging. In November of 2009, I upgraded to a Nikon D-5000 DSLR - still using my Nikkor 18-55mm / 55-200mm Nikkor lenses, as well as a Tamron 10-24mm wide-angle lens In December 2010, I purchased a second Nikon body for my imaging arsenal (always good to have a back-up - the availability of a different focal length lens perspective without having to dismount and remount a lens is sweet!). The Nikon D-3100 I purchased was released August 2010, and is built around a 14.2 megapixel CMOS sensor. This camera has a higher pixel-count than my Nikon D-5000 at 12.3 megapixel. I also considered the Nikon D-3X with 24.5-megapixel, but that unit sells for $5,000 - which is about 10 times what I paid for my D-3100 - you do the math... I also have added a Sigma 18-50mm lens (designed for the updated imaging sensor in my Nikon D-5000 body, as a replacement for the ‘kit’ 18-55mm Nikkor lens that came with the body), and a Tamron 70-300mm as an upgrade for the 55-200mm Nikkor lens I own. This past week (June 6, 2010), I upgraded once again – to a Nikon D5100 which was released in April 2011. I sold my D5000 body along with the Nikkor 18-55mm and 55-200mm lenses to a colleague (I was not using the lenses anyway because of the Sigma, Tamron(s), and Nikkor 35mm lenses I now own). The D5100 is smaller than my 5100, and closer to my D3100 in terms of styling (and they both spec. for the same battery!). One of the most significant design difference is the addition of a side-hinging LCD screen on my D5100, as opposed to the bulkier (and more awkward) bottom-hinged LCD used in the D5000 – that got in the way EVERY time I mounted the D5000 on a tripod. Here are some key differences between my D5100 and D5000… Higher resolution sensor (16.2MP vs. 14MP) 1080p video mode Wider ISO range (100-25,600 equivalent) Full-time AF mode (AF-F in live view) Dual IR receivers (front and rear) Side-articulated LCD screen (as opposed to bottom-articulated) 921k dot LCD screen 14-bit NEF (Raw) mode Effects modes I did capture this image with my iPhone 4 camera in HDR - hope the Nikon purists in the group will forgive me :-)90.365 - Death By Photography
30 March 2009 I'm alive! Haha, well, not in this photo! I mean I'm alive! I haven't been on flickr for a while, but I have been needing a break lately. For the past month or so I have spent every day cramming for tests or scrambling to get homework done before my mum makes me turn off my lights while trying to find some sort of time to upload. I was getting about 4-5 hours of sleep every night because I stayed up doing the huge amount of work my teachers assign me. So when my snot-nosed little brother came home with "the ick" and promptly coughed on me, I knew I was in for another week off school while trying to keep my food down. Fun, right? Not really because I had a TON of make-up work, but I did end up with much sleep and a little time to rest, so I guess that was just my body's way of telling me to take a break. The odd thing is before this past winter, I have only ever been sick once in my life. This winter alone, I have been sick twice! So, now after my very long absence from flickr (my apologies) I am back! And I hope to hold to that promise that I made in my last photo when my Gran goes back to Canada which will be in a few weeks. Since she is convinced she will die soon (she has been this way for the past 4 years) I am being forced to spend every waking moment with her. But, I will upload. Maybe not as often as I like, but I will. That brings me to another point, if my next few photos seem a little morbid, I am sorry. My gran tends bring that about... Anyway, now since that's over... THE COLOUR IS COMING BACK IN THE GRASS! YES! I have waited so long for the brown to disappear, I see colour again when I look out my window. That means summer is coming! Yes! Oh, I found out that we have nearly 6 film cameras all with various lenses the other day. I am so excited! I just have to get batteries and film for all of them and see which ones work. P.S. - I think I have failed 365... But I will still try! I can guarantee you that over the summer I will post every day, maybe even more than once! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Explore #146, thanks!
