K100D in mine environment
Posted By: garth1948, 03-07-2008, 02:51 AM

Used K100d as part of my work today in a major bauxite mine.
Camera performed faultlessly in a very demanding environment.
57 out of 59 are keepers - outstanding result.
Attached image converted to B&W for jounalistic purpose.

Nicely exposed image Garth. It does look like a demanding environment. Wouldn't want to get too near all that dust, with camera or not.

Thanks Garth.
Pic reminds of my previous life working in iron-ore towns Newman & Port Hedland.

Since we can never keep clean of the red dust, I call them places where we wash our hands *before* we go to toilet

Btw, 25 yrs ago when a graduate salary was ~$16K, those tyres cost $5K each. A haultruck typically wore out two sets/year, that's 20 tyres costing $100K = 6 years engineer's salary, just for tyres!!

I'm with the opposition.
Our ports in WA are Dampier, Pt Samson and Port Hedland.

Nice picture Garth - it seems to me a little tilted maybe a 1% rotation clockwise - very nice BW conversion as well.

Large tree on right is vertical. Tilting is an illusion due to the haulpak on a slope.
I first thought I had the level wrong.
I use LightZone for processing.
