    Picked up a few film related items this week on ebay:


    Red B+W 55mm 25 090 red filter $20 I'll use this on the Electro 35 GSN next week while shooting some Tri-X


    TIME Magazine promotional 35mm plastic camera kit $6


    BLACK Yashica Electro 35 GT (sold as-is, bought primarily as it comes with the Yashica Tele-wide viewer for my GSN) $13.50
    Good luck with that! I loved shooting 35mm film and waited a long, long time to switch to a DSLR. Even though I still have my N90s and N70, I have no desire to shoot with them. Perhaps it's because I've gotten a little lax...it is so easy to glance at the image on a DSLR to check exposure that it isn't so critical to meter like it used to be. However, I do miss using a darkroom. There's nothing like the smell of chemicals, watching images appear on paper, and bumping into others when first walking into the dark. (Took a class for darkroom printing).

    I bought a 1/4" to 3/8" Bushing Adapter for my monopod so that I could mount a head on it. I mounted my gimbal on my monopod and played with it a little bit and was quite surprised on how easy it is to handle. Plan to go shoot birds with the rig tomorrow to see how it works. It is a lot easier than moving and handling a tripod and still takes the weight off and makes for a very steady platform.

    We will see.

    I've found that using a gimbal on a monopod sometimes requires 3 hands - one to hold the monopod, one for the camera and one to zoom the lens.

    I shot a bit all last summer. Not much to shoot in the winter here, well more so that I don't spend as much time outside really. I've got the GSN and x-700 loaded and ready for a day out on Monday

    Finally broke down and decided to retire my fullsize Velbon tripod that I bought while stationed in South Korea - in 1984. (I had replaced the ballhead though.) I received my new black MeFOTO RoadTrip Air Travel Tripod yesterday. First impressions are extremely positive! The new twist mechanism is very slick and saves a lot of space. The ballhead is Arca compatible and works perfectly with the grip for my X-T2.

    Speaking of this thread, finally caught the right price 18/2 Fuji for my X-Pro1 to try food gigs with an even lighter setup than the Df and 24-85 and it was (obviously) successful. 18-55's size would've killed its portability, and the 27 I have for it is a pain to do group shots with, aside from plastic'y feel.

    Lenses focus the light, onto the sensor that records it. Sensor first and foremost.

    Replaced the QR plate on my Manfrotto tripod with an Arca Swiss clamp. Now all my tripods are interchangeable.
