Thanks, Wolfd for the link.
Here are a couple of images. They're not very good.

The first image was taken with my Samsung p&s and I missed focus somehow.
The second image was taken with a Nikon D 80, but the white balance was off.
I probably should have gone outside to take the pictures.

The camera had not quite 67,000 shutter actuations on it, but the body looks brand new. Maybe the owner found out how much he would get for it, and decided to machine gun another 50,000 images on it before he sent it to Keh.

I've got a half dozen or so different backpacks picked out, just trying to decide which one to get. LowPro & Ape Case. Good to know you like your LowPro Mark.

Vintage pieces for my Canon F-1, "D" flash module, 2 lens hoods, Circular polarizer, and two viewfinder eye cups, one for the F-1 and one for my AE-1 Program.
Thanks to K.E.H. for stocking some old accessories. In the past year I have boughten a Canon flash, 2 hand held exposure meters, 2 flash cords, 5 lenses, motor drive, grip, Flash cards, and filters ALL for my old film cameras except the flash cards. Prices are right and they ship post haste.

I should have picked up on that

Oh well, just to be contrary this is my latest purchase, a Kupo C stand with a max height of 70" , behind it is the ProMaster 4 which extends to 13 1/2'. BTW 10' ceilings..



Also downloaded a trial version of Lightroom. Do Not Care for the UI, deleted it. I'm now working on a trial version of Capture One Express, now that looks promising. The Pro version doesn't support tethered shooting for Olympus and I'm not sure if I can talk myself into the additional cost for zone adjustments ?

Cheers, Don

Still very new to photography but decided to get myself a strobist setup:

Softbox
Shoot through umbrella
2 x yongnuo yn468-ii speedlites
Yongnuo triggers
2 x light stands and umbrella brackets
5 in 1 reflector

Going to do some baby shots so also bought:

4' x 4' sheet of mdf for the background
Pack of laminate flooring
Skirting board
Various boxes, blankets and baskets for props


And my next purchase will be a lastolite hilite

I'm sure my gf will be happy when she gets some nice photos of our daughter
