Yeah, because that's obviously the most likely explanation... rolleyes.gif

You obviously don't know the women I know.

I did, then when I was totally finished, I went to load some film and it wouldn't fit. Turns out Polaroid made another 3.25x4.25 packfilm that was in a slightly smaller pack than the usual type 100.

I ended up starting over with a hasselblad back. All I had to do for that was cut down a sheet of plastic, drill some holes, and screw it into place. The darkslide just wedges into the space between the plastic mask and the holder itself. This one goes directly into the graflok back, so no sealant was needed.

Yeesh, I wish I still had that kind of drive for projects. Maybe one of these days I'll pick up the Dremel and some rogue material, lock my doors and slip into madness.

Bleh I'm tired of this. I think I'm just going to put everything up for sale. I don't think photography is for me after all.

I got my 7D back today, supposedly fixed from those AF adjustments they did when they supposedly calibrated it to that broken 50 1.4. I try it out today and all my lenses, every single one of them report F00, the AF doesn't work, and it won't take a shot even on MF. Tried resetting the camera and cleaning the contacts on the body and neither fixed it. The contacts look ok comparing them to my T2i (which works fine btw). Time to call corporate again tomorrow morning I guess since the body is worth zero like this. Unacceptable. Not only do they not fix things, they make new problems for me to deal with.

All of this makes it not fun anymore, and if its not fun, then it seems silly having this gear that won't be getting used.

Sorry for the rant. Had to vent somewhere and I think I've finally reached my breaking point on all this.

You need a change of pace. Buy a Rebel film camera for like 20 bucks, slap on a lens and just go shoot something other than cars for a bit. Let Canon fix the 7D, but try to enjoy photography while you let someone else wrestle with the gear. You've got some good racing shots, so I wouldn't pack it in and call it a day just yet.

I know it's frustrating, but as long as you have an intact warranty on the body, don't sweat it.

Haha. Well, the only reason I had to resort to DIY for this is because I simply couldn't afford the proper polaroid holder. It costs like $200 for a used one, which would be like several months' savings for me.

I concur. You really shouldn't give up just because you got some bad gear. The more advanced these things become, the more prone they are to failure. It's pretty much inevitable that something is going to fail at some point. You just got unlucky. I agree that a film camera would be a great escape. I'd go with something manual though. eBay had old 35mm cameras for next to nothing with a ~50mm lens.

I would also suggest a manual camera normally, but Rebels are so dirt cheap, there's no way you'll find any manual body and lens combo for 20-40 bucks that will be as good as the Rebel and EF 50.

Unless, of course, you know what antique malls and thrift stores are (Yashica D for 50 bucks? Yes, plz).
post #17950 of 29539
That does sound like a nice idea. I'd just like a working AF system at this point lol.
