If I were old/had time and money to go places, I would shoot only large format and slides only and then just have them mounted on LIGHT TABLES ON THE WALL YEAH DON'T EVEN NEED TO PRINT EM. That was a bit overboard, but that would be so neat. Also scanning through the roll and the M6 meter is what is poopish. Oh well what can I do...

Maybe I'm a delusional nutjob, but this replacement D7000 (The 3rd one) also has a backfocus problem. But thank god this only requires a -15 instead of -18/20/whatever-it-was adjustment.... I can't be bothered taking this one back now, probably the whole lot got contaminated. Feels bad having a camera that backfocuses, it's as if I'm out of sync with it and don't trust it. But I'm quite certain my technique to ascertain focusing issues is fine.

Tripod
Mirror Up
Remote Shutter
Stationary Subject
AF-S
Centre Point
Manual Metering
No movement
ISO 100
Consistent Lighting

(Feel free to tell me differently)

I'll probably get it fixed next year when I send it in for my annual free sensor clean. "Yay"

On a somewhat more jovial note, I recommended to my friend to purchase a 550D a few months ago on the basis that it was cheaper than the Nikon alternative and Canon stuff is cheaper in general. Now he tells me he likes the finer things about Nikon, like that all my lens caps are better than his Canon ones (We both have 17-55s) and that on my Nikon "green is green". But my instinct tells me that he blames me frown.gif

On the film note, I would have liked to do some and I was going to buy a F3, but modern conveniences spoil me D:

If details like that had come out 3 weeks ago, I might have waited for it. Shame.

Bunch of stuff going on today in the world of Canon. Some from Canon Rumors, some from Adorama (still offering 70-200 F/2.8LIS MK II for < $1900 w/ Mr. Rebates 4% back). Link provided at the bottom.

G1x PowerShot has been announced. MSRP $799. 1/1.5 sensor (bigger than Nikon 1, but not quite 4/3). Lots of other cool stuff.

Two new ELPH PowerShots.

Also interesting of note to Canon - Nikon's D4 has been confirmed, and should be available in February. Sneaky sneaky!

Finally -- I found this somewhat interesting.. 60Ds are becoming hard to find. In some cases, really hard, as they apparently have been removed from inventory systems @ Best Buy (as well as other retailers reportedly). B&H has what appears to be Grey Market kits available, but no bodies, etc, and Adorama says they're on back order with no dates available. I wonder if CES will show us a new consumer DSLR from Canon (70D I would have to imagine, since Canon doesn't really want to announce pro level gear at a consumer show).

FYI, the Canon 70-200 F/2.8L IS MK II is back on sale at Adorama for $1974.. with Mr. Rebates 4% it's even cheaper ($1895). Awesome price. http://www.adorama.com/CA702002ISU.html?emailprice=t

Well, if that's out of your range I could sell you my non-IS for close to half of the IS cost...
