There is info for both new and used lenses. An example is given here. If the lens is quite new, there is no used info to go on. If old, no new info. Recently pricing for B&H and Adorama were included in such graphs

I do agree that dating the pricing for any lens might be worthwhile.

So I started my class again. A wide variety of people (about 12 of them) with different backgrounds. But they all had Canikons. Not so different after all!

I am still the voice crying in the wilderness!

Hello All!
It looks like I came up #2 on the last contest, but the winner could not post, so here you go. I call this Armed T Rex. Have fun with it!

Important: Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well.

The "thread starter" is the moderator and must post an original photo at the start of the thread. In case of a tie the moderator will choose one to break the tie. After determination of the contest's winner, that winner will be notified ASAP after by the current Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for posting the next original work to be captioned. Enter often, vote more often. and most important: Have fun !

For a firearm it is necessary to maintain stability during the recoil and to absorb some of it. Leaning forward (a bit) with a camera maintains a better center of gravity. There shouldn't be any recoil!

A standard practice for a person with experience using firearms, and it adds some comfort to the person taking the picture too! I do suspect the rifle is locked and loaded though!

I have done color in the past. Temperature is a consideration, but not as complicated as you might think. I would take the pint bottles of chemistry (about 6 I think) and float/place them in a bath of water at the required temperature. Using a thermometer (accurate one), I would get the water coming out of the tap the proper temperature, or just a bit under, and then once the container was filled I would use a simple fish tank heater to bring the temp up to the proper level. This would take the most time. Don't over shoot. Bring the temp up slowly as it is faster to heat the bath than to get it to cool down. Once the chemistry is at the proper temp you can start processing the film. TO maintain temps through the process, it tool like The Lab can be place in a water bath also (just don't go too high!)
