Tripods, monopods, heads, a 4th Dimension Mongoose M3.6 gimbal, flashes, flash extender, plus the routine assortment of parts & pieces. I'm still looking for skill....

    Read your first post and my reply. Nothing wrong with disagreement and debate, however you're perspective is that anyone that doesn't agree with you is wrong, an idiot, moron, etc. You're two-faced ...

  • The way you mapped this doesn't make sense to me - the current plan evolves from the 70D? There are clearly separate product types or classes, e.g. 1D series, xxD, etc. that have evolved into next ...

    LOL, if it's true, he's pretty darn good at multitasking. On top of it, some of his posts were nothing less than essays, don't know how he found the time to harass photograph the locals with his ...
  • Potato shipments to Asia from the port of LA are delayed. McD had to ration fries and resort to air freight for Japan. Life in Asia is difficult, back to rice & noodles... Cheers, Doug

    It seems he requested a deletion of his account. He might have imploded trying to keep up with creating and replying to his insightful threads and posts. On not being able to post again within 1 ...
