Upstate NY - Cafe Members?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by NewBert, Jul 14, 2008.

  1. I've just moved to Glens Falls, NY and was wondering whether there are any Cafe members in the general vicinity (say - Albany and north).

    Also, any recommendations of local camera stores, and specific places to shoot?

    Thanks!

    Hey Bert, west Rochester area. Mike
    PS. Rochester is the birth place of photography. Now just a ghost town !!!
     
  3. Rochester is not a ghost town. there are many very special companies in Rochester which are very healthy, growing, and doing very important work. It is just not publicized.

    A lot of work for the James Webb Space Telescope is being done in Rochester

    the prime contract for a new generation of weather satellites will be in Rochester

    Most diffraction gratings for optical instruments come from Rochester

    Many stepper lenses which are critical to the semiconductor industry are made in Rochester

    There are multiple companies in Rochester building new airborne imaging systems

    Rochester is home to the 2 world leaders in thin film interference filters, critical to laser communications and fluorescence related biology research among other applications.
