Lens is singular; lenses is plural. As such, it is a common (??) mistake to think that the singular of lenses is lense...

For what it's worth....I just checked B&H.....they have 2 pre-owned grips listed: a D-BG5 and a D-BG2, no D-BG4 :(

....each is listed for just $29.94

Here's a link to an old thread on the Shuttle...

Space shuttle - PentaxForums.com


As for photographing the launch...use a good tripod. I photographed the Columbia launch from the VVIP view site (about 3 miles from pad 39A) eons ago...and even with a strong, heavy tripod, the ground was still shaking under my feet....naturally, my photo's were affected. Not sure how close you can get now days...but 3 mile limit was derived from the Apollo days.....engineers calculated that if the Saturn V blew up on the pad, the explosion would hurl a 100 pound piece of debris 3 miles....don't know if that is really true, but it's what all the old timers at NASA were telling us younger kids....we believed it then.

Good luck with your shots...hope they get good weather and can launch...post some pics!

Am back in Maine for a while....this was captured last week by my daughter atop Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park.....she's just getting into photography and her first attempt at getting sunrise pic's. Also hard to get a teenager up well before dawn, but I think she did OK! I'm proud of her...:)

So has anyone here actually purchased one of these cards from Amazon during this 'sale? If so, how's the card working? I have a non-camera related need for a larger sized card, but if it's junk I don't want to bother. I've read the postings about others who have the card, and I can live with the speed, just curios if anyone has actually purchased from this link and how the product was once you received it....

thank you,
mark

My 2 cents on the topic....

I would contact the Dr., explaining the circumstances as to how you acquired the item and offer to return the film, or destroy. Let the Dr. decide....
