On 20141015-EM1A8924-2 in the Rainy days challenge (14 comments in total)

Yea, that's great, but what have I done as of lately? That's so last fall. ;)
Seriously, thanks all. I would have missed this if I didn't need to seek some shelter in that downpour (the gear was fine in the bag, it was I that wasn't quite dressed for it). As it was it's unfortunate I wasn't quick enough to recognize her approaching.

santamonica812: Offered in freshwater and saltwater versions??? I don't understand. If I have a saltwater version, why on earth would that not work perfectly in fresh waters? (I understand, of course, why the reverse would not be true . . . salt can corrode, so I can see why one would not bring a freshwater version into the ocean/sea.)

What am I missing or overlooking?

Buoyancy? A freshwater version might be cheaper to manufacture, I suppose, as well.

On Bad weather landscape challenge (4 comments in total)

By 'landscape', I'd presume that means rural 'scapes, not urban 'scapes . Correct?

CharlesTokyo: I'll just stick with my Olympus and forgo the bag. To be honest though, even my normal bags have held up just fine in a downpour. Why in the world do I need this?

Why would you think you need this if you don't need it.
There's lots of things we don't need or want. Do you make comments on everything you don't need or want?

for a one camera/lens solution with a waterproof body w/o a waterproof lens (like a m4/3 CV), it might be perfect for more than a few camera carriers out there.

I like this bag. I don't need it (weatherproof bodies and a few Billinghams in hand). When out with one body/lens and concerned about precipitation I have a large Sea/Summit bag that does the job. But this/these bags are elegant for whomever deems them a must have.

rrccad: nice lenses, pity they don't have rear filters, like most do or should in this class of focal length.

Incredible.

Not true. Filter slots have been user-added to the Panasonic 7-14 (to add a 2a Wratten UV filter, to compensate for the weak UV filter on Olympus sensors which can cause excessive purple flaring with that lens).

Bob Tullis: Too bad they can't make them waterproof w/o an accessory rain cover. :(

My closet is full of bags of all types - since finally breaking down and getting a Billingham, the others. . . need to be sold or donated away. Rain jacket for me, rain pants. and a Billingham bag mean not having to worry about heavy downpours.

Think Tank bags hold up to moderate precipitation, granted.

Zvonimir Tosic: Imagine a situation when a photographer is in the city, or in a village, has to do a photo session and there is a difficult child in front, that won't move away?
We have argued in the Pentax forum that that extra thingie, may as well be PEZ dispenser inside camera, a suitable solution for difficult situations. Not a single camera ever introduced it, and Pentax can get a hint and innovate in all new directions. Better to get away with PEZ, than a with a lost lens cap, or filter, or a broken lens, shot with a sling.

Why not? Or at least included a Pez dispenser for the Hot Shoe.

On Lomography adds Lomochrome Turquoise film to lineup article (91 comments in total)
In reply to:

tonybelding: I don't know where all the venom comes from. I mean, yeah. . . I know this is "teh interwebs" and there's always a peanut gallery ready to trash anything new and different, but. . .

I think it looks kind of cool. It's funky, but it could be fun to play around with. That's what Lomography is all about. They're called "toy cameras" because they're fun to play around with. Does photography have to be deadly serious business all the time?

Having said that, I'm not paying the inflated pre-order price and then waiting five months for delivery. I'll let somebody else take that deal.

It's easier to be a negative 'authority' than a positive one.

Gee, that's creative on so many levels. Had no idea it was you, even though it reeked of your eye on things as I know it. Kudos.

In reply to:

Bob Tullis: That, and maybe [rolling eyes], was exactly the reaction I hoped for.

My day is made. ;)

The only thing I know about that is it harkens memories of the Olympus Pen film cameras of yore. And that worked out rather well with regard to the interest in retro-anything today. :)
