the red bar below the shutter release

Hi,

You missed to tape the red bar below the shutter release, it is almost as bad as adding a red dot...

Best regards
Erik




I could always say it's a Black Nike. Those that need to ask know nothing of red dots or flashes.

Anyway, the red flash helps me find the camera when I'm shooting in low light. Trouble is, neither of the mothers takes 'phone calls, which means I still have to carry that pesky cellpix machine which, since I have to carry it, means I might as well stop using the other three (the F3 stays locked away for posterity and museum purposes in the next millennium) which sets that vicious circle rolling all over again.

And to think someone wanted to help his sister get onto this train.

Have you considered tunnels?

Ah ha! Yes. A bit old now, but son number 2 in a kids' playground stainless steel tunnel. Shot from one end, the tunnel ran at about 45 degrees up a hill. Most kids slid down it, my son had to climb up it. Which is fair.

So, I could be a proper photographer after all (though still no D800  Sad )

Rob C,
   Whenever asked what kind of camera I use I say, "do you ask a great chef what kind of oven he uses?"

That's dangerous: they might ask where's the great chef? I wouldn't run such risks!

See what happens when someone is allowed to think out of the box!

What happens, clearly, is that someone instantly pops them back into one - literally - see above!

Not quite a lighthouse - it's an old beacon tower - but clearly I'm getting there. All I need now is a D800 ...

I thought that this was a lighthouse thread? You have definitely gone of subject and your punishment is to be banished to one without any camera, never mind the D800. Grin

Bill, I see you are an exponent of the three-eighths rule; I like that in a photographer.

There you go: confusing me with science, just like any twelve-year-old would/could do!

In fact, I'm so confused I'm just going to go right out and buy another lottery ticket right now!
