  1. What is that hooked shape tool used here, or what is a good substitute for it?
  2. You'll adapt!! I use one of these on my M4 for exposure settings: https://www.cameraquest.com/voivcmet2.htm Nothing wrong with an M6 either. There are a few options in the bodies regarding viewfinder magnification and ttl metering, so do your research. Black is sexier than chrome imho.
  3. I just sold an R3A on ebay to a dude in South Korea!! Not you, I hope. My R3A was okay, but didn't come any where close to the user enjoyability and build quality of my Leica M4 body. I suggest you get a refund and stump up for a nice user M2, M3 or M4. You'll need some form of a light meter or a sixth sense for guessing your exposure settings, but it's worth it imho.
  4. It looks like it needs an adjustment. Rangefinders often need adjusting every couple of years or so. Not a terribly expensive repair. What camera body is it?
  5. That was my final take of the incident: it was a love story.
  6. Around home time at work today I get a call from a friend to tell me he saw a couple having sex on my car in the car park. I go down to investigate: my friend was correct. They appeared to be a homeless couple, and heavily intoxicated from sniffing tolulene. I thought I'd best be diplomatic. I told them I was leaving in the car in five minutes time, so they'd be better off finding somewhere else. The guy gave me a wink and told me he'd be finished in two minutes.

    Top Gear

    I can't help but think that Clarkson may have engineered this. Clarkson reported the incident to BBC management, not the producer he assaulted. The million signatures on the petition in his support and all the publicity over this incident can only increase his commercial value to rival broadcasters. His contract was running out.
  8. Very few people would recognize this to be an interchangeable lens kit. It looks like a point & shoot but offers you DSLR functionality and a quite decent 70-200 f2.8 equivalent telephoto zoom. Always a risk I suppose it may get recognized.
  9. Pentax Q body of some sort with a matching Pentax 06 lens. Small form factor, DSLR menus and functions, equivalent 35mm focal length to 70-200 zoom. For me, this replaced my Canon S95 for your type of uses.

    Top Gear

    "More than 600,000 people have signed an online petition (started by UK political blogger Guido Fawkes) to return Jeremy Clarkson to Top Gear. Clarkson has been suspended following claims he hit a producer on the program. The BBC has pulled two of the final three episodes of Top Gear in the current series in response to the suspension of Clarkson. But the BBC has not only lost revenue from the episodes being pulled, it has opened itself up to compensation claims from foreign broadcasters for non-performance of a program-supply contract. But is the suspension a case of the BBC shooting itself
  11. Anybody here contribute stock photos online for royalties? iStock just accepted my application. Any tips or feedback? At the very least, I'm thinking I can now deduct my camera gear on my tax returns.
  12. Maybe, but he wasn't the first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dv1bM0pp_o4
  13. I've spent the last 3 years trying to persuade myself that I don't need a FF DSLR. The itch just wouldn't go away. I've just picked up a good deal on some second hand gear. A D700 body and a Nikon 50mm f1.4 g. So far, I'm very impressed by this combo. I'm now looking to expand my lenses. From KEH I've picked up a Tokina 28-70 f2.6/2.8 and a Nikon 105 f2 DC. I'm considering my options for a wide angle prime. I'm thinking a 24mm f2.8D but have read mixed reviews. I'm also attracted to the Sigma 35mm Art. Any recommendations?
