I Miss Cable Releases.

01 October 2020 - 12:14 PM

There's something about mechanical cable releases that just feel right. Something self timers and remote controls can't capture. But I can't seem to let the old ones go. Still in my bag? I wish Nikon kept this feature with their digital camera designs. Everything should not be accessed by menu's & battery's. I would prefer to screw in the cable release than search for the setting for the remote control. 

Best Bags, My opinion.

When it comes to photo bags I believe I have had most of them.

After all the smoke clears I believe Tamrac is the best camera bag I have owned.

It is over 25 years old and still exceptional in ever way. I have had expensive Lowepro back packs foam dry rot and crumble [ lifetime warranty on materials & workmanship which they failed to honor 3 years ago]. They had to nerve to tell me the foam is not covered !



My Tamrac was worth every dollar.

A Medium size bag, that I used to carry a large Mamiya 6X7 & lenses plus all my Nikon 35mm gear with everything else I need. Not shooting medium format anymore means a lot less weight. 

I have no need to purchase another bag at all. Very happy with it and it's quality. 

Old school photographer seeking new inspiration.

19 September 2020 - 05:36 PM

Just a quick hello to follow my new registration. I am an old school self taught nature / landscape photographer from Florida who has drifted away from one of the passions of my life.

Looking to get back into field work which in my home state of Florida basically means winter fieldwork. I studied from the masters like Ansel Adams, Galen Rowell, John Shaw and others. Went from film to digital however have not done much serious work in digital. That is why I am here....to learn and maybe share my knowledge. Recently upgraded to a better camera body and am just learning the many features. So I will be seeking your help from time to time. Thanks for reading my "quick hello".
