Let this be a lesson to all DP readers should we ever decide to venture away from our monitors and take some pictures. Be careful out there and just in case I have started a thread on what is the best type of footwear in terms of grip. These slippers I am wearing are just not up to it.

whilst I am on the subject what is the best camera that will fit into a pyjama pocket?

mosc: Can someone explain the alure of a 80-400 4.5 to 5.6? You can get a 70-200 f2.8 and a 2x teleconverter for that. Covers 70-200 at 2.8 and 201-400 at f5.6. Just seems very expensive.

Johannes Zander: Did you know this one:

Did you hear about the lawyer on vacation whose sailboat capsized in dangerous, shark-infested waters?

He surprised his traveling companions by volunteering to swim to the far-off shore for help. As he swam, his companions were startled by the appearance of two dorsal fins -- great white sharks, heading straight toward the lawyer.

To their surprise, the sharks allowed the lawyer to take hold of their fins, and escorted him safely to shore.

When the lawyer returned with help, his companions asked him how he had managed such an incredible feat. The lawyer answered, "Professional courtesy."

Could also replace Lawyer with Real Estate Agents

Greg Lovern: Maybe the photographer should just drop the case before he becomes known as the photographer who needs monkeys to take his pictures for him...

the Monkey didn't chimp the exposure thats for sure

Does anyone know what model of camera he used?

So simple a Monkey can use it

I read last week that a photographer who took pictures of a crocodile in Australia eating a snake has made over $27,000 from image sales. So why hasn't this guy?
