    FOOD POISONING

    Sorry about your wife getting sick. That's not really food poisoning. But it IS poisoning. Food poisoning is from bad food not food that has an additional poison added.

    Which facility to use to repair my camera?

    Foutunately, I live close enough to APS to drive there. I've walked in and they did a quick assessment while I stood there. Can't go wrong with APS.

    Tamrac straps?? What happened?

    While I do not have either of those straps, I wouldn't worry about the thinner one working on your Z6. What I would worry about is that skinny strap cutting into your neck.

    Price of yesteryear's gear

    I sold my low mileage, never professionaly used D700 with a Nikon battery grip a few yrs ago. I was amazed that it would only command around $750 on the used market.

    Silly Expensive Treat - and Yours?

    No one mentioned their expensive photography gear. I just had to compile a list of my photo gear with descriptions, prices and serial numbers for my insurance company. I was surprised at the bottom line. BUT a silly somewhat expensive treat is usually doing something while we're on vacation that...

    Selling used gear to Adorama or B&H

    Just to add my .02¢ worth. I've sold privately, to Adorama, KEH and B&H. The stores will offer 70% of the going rate of the item you're selling. I've found that I almost always said my stuff was, in my opinion, in better condition that what they said it was. I'll first try selling privately but...

    Gorillas!

    Thanks for the info, sir. Looks like a road trip is in order. On a good day, It's about an hour from home to the zoo.

    Gorillas!

    Nice images Glenn. Does Brookfield allow the use of a tripod? A couple years ago at Lincoln Park Zoo I was told I couldn't use a tripod indoor or out.

    I just can't do an x-week long photo project.

    It's provable with me as the subject. I resist change, but I don't believe I'm the only one. There are several articles dealing with this subject. The link below is one of many. Sorry for the digression of your OP...

    I just can't do an x-week long photo project.

    I once did an Octoberfest challenge here at the Cafe. I made it through that but have not done any other "must shoot daily" challenges. One of the pages I frequent on facebook gives a weekly "assignment". You post one photo where the subject coincides with the assignment. No pressure if you...

    FX Camera

    I've seen alot of questions starting with "What's the best..." or "What's the least expensive..." or "Can someone recommend a better...". I believe people do that because they are looking for advice from others that may have experience with the particular item they are asking about. Doing a...

    Photography Humor...

    George Carlin was one of the best. He'd take everyday stuff and make us laugh at it, like the one hour photo skit. Robin Williams had the same kind of humor.

    Freezing rain in northwest Indiana this morning. We postponed a road trip for a few hours until things clear up a bit.

    Snow couple...

    Your meter is exposing for 18% gray and that's what your photo looks like...the snow is gray. I did a quick boost of exposure and tweeked contrast, shadows & highlights. If you want me to delete this, no problem.

    D7100 + 200-500 f5.6; not getting results I expected

    No expert with that lens/body combo but I had a d7200 and nikon 70-200 f/2.8 with a TC 17eII. Rule of thumb is your shutter speed should be 1/focal length. So at a focal length of 500 your shutter speed should be 1/500. This will help eliminate camera movement. With that said, your first photo...

    Annual Photography Book

    Glenn, this year's book is fantastic. Strangely enough, the photo of the coal burning generating station on pg 23 sparks my interest. I spent 36 yrs working at a generating station in Chesterton, IN. Thanks for posting your book.

    Question about a gray market Nikon 850

    My answer comes in three parts. 1. Stay away from Abe's of Maine. They are bait & switch artists. 2. Stay away from grey market equipment. Nobody will repair it in the USA. 3. I spend my photo money at Amazon, Adorama, or B&H. We had a local camera store that I've delt with but the owner retired...

    Public toilets-a new concept

    I'm just sitting here shaking my head in disbelief. One, that someone thought this was ok and two, that someone photographed it.
