    OK...

    So it's another KIND of shooting. Any photography buffs in here? If so, what are you shooting?

    I'm currently using an Olympus C8080 WideZoom with a gaggle of accessories. I have a Canon A560 as my backup 7.1 megapixel quickie camera. I'm planning to move over to a Nikon D80 Digital SLR so that I can use all of my 35mm Nikon lenses with it.

    Good photos take just as much skill as shooting becoming a good shot at the range.

    Hey Zem,
    Been shooting 35mm slides since early '60s. Love to watch slides projected onto 6 foot screen. Almost as good as the real thing. Primary interests are wildlife and landscapes while traveling in the Rockies. Used Minolta and Nikon SLR's before moving into Leica R series. Currently using R9 with several lenses up to 280mm with matching 1.4/2x telextenders.

    Good shooting and be safe.

    ps: On our last trip to Tetons/Yellowstone, saw and photographed a mama Grizzly bear with three 2 year old cubs at a distance of 50 yds. Watched them for nearly an hour.

    Am having problems with PhotoBucket today and can't resize images. These may be too large. Can't post my 35mm Kodachrome slides but can post a couple of pics taken with my wife's digital camera (Leica VLux1):

    I'd like to build a compound on top of that mountain and just live there Ted Nugent style.

    I think this calls for a member pictures thread.

    Show us your new picture box. Digital cameras are as bad as personal computers in becoming out of date the day after you buy them. My wife is on her second or third digital camera in less than two years. Guess I am just an old dinosaur but I still love shooting color slides with 35mm SLR cameras and Kodachrome 64 film. Unfortunately that combination isn't easy to share via the internet (doesn't scan well) so I have to use her digital camera for pics to be posted.
