  • There are no EX2F owners here that have delved deeper into macro? I've only got 12 dollars invested in these. I'll go five times that to enable more critical macro work with this camera. Does not ...
  • Just got around to trying these. I don't expect much except deeper macro for occasional use when detail is needed. If I get these to work I may spring for one nicer 52mm coated two element 4x Canon ...
  • Sorry for the double post here.   This fit better in another thread.
  • Replied in My tone?
    Steephill, if you sincerely do not recognize the taunt implied in your first response then I apologize for presuming it. If you're that insensitive to the way you present yourself in word, well, ...
  • If your small cameras are Nikon or Canon listed here...                                                http://www.easycover.eu/camera-cases you might consider one of these.. Many of them are ...
  • Replied in Why?
    Well. I dropped my camera recently. Wrist strap? Yeah. 99 percent of the time. Who's perfect?. 30 USD for negligible bulk and substantial peace of mind? The drop left a 3mm x 5mm x2mm deep ...
  • Easycover brand. Nikon and Canon only unfortunately. Any other similar  out there?  Didn't find it on Google.
  • Google "vacuum bagging", "vacuum forming", etc. Youtube has quite a few tutorials on vacuum-forming fiberglass or carbon fiber cases, hobby parts, panels, etc. Doesn't look too tricky. I noticed ...
  • Moderators, I hope this doesn't break cross posting rules. I'm hoping to get more input here by including similarly sized camera models beyond Samsung. My model is a Samsung EX2F. Have the Samsung ...
  • Still looking for a good one. Picked up a 10 dollar job at walmart last night after dropping the camera sans protection one week into owning it. Stupidly waited too long. The Samsung leather case ...
  • Thank you for that  l_d_allen. I thought I'd seen all of his. "No one ... has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people." I usually hear it ...
  • Thank you Robert for the thoughtful additions.  Sorry for that loss.   I'm really not the type to  seek out or enjoy others' misfortune.  Schadenfreude is the hip term for it I think.  And the ...
  • An interesting aside on this... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vision_span Could I coax my brain, through practice, to recognize words at the periphery of vision?  Might a spy agency, or special ...
  • I thought it was simpler.   I tried searching it and many seem to pile more complication onto the answer than need be. Of course it's marvelously complex.  But I had a hard time finding a cogent ...
  • Article was funnier, perhaps, than insinuating the idiocy of non-native English speakers.. but others' mileage may vary. Who am I to say? Honestly though.. I may have offended by suggesting the ...
  • The wording there resonates. Breaking bad was my reacquaintance with television serials after a long spell of very little TV through the Air Force and four years of college. I hadn't even seen an ...
  • I'm going to check on that Monday.  Thanks for the tip. I'm generally the pessimist, so I have to wonder if in most (all?) cases this might only benefit real loss or catastrophic damage to a hugely ...
  • Read only the first two pages. It was mentioned that metal vs plastic is a difficult one to parse since cameras aim for precision and compactness. Life expectancy and 'crash worthiness', especially ...
  • Thanks loads guys. The camera survival tales are encouraging. This EX2F is built like a tank.  Unfortunately that's an asset for anything but falls.  Drop a compact car from twenty feet onto ...
  • On a related note, the topic points to something similar in my preference for the IQ of my four year old 52" Samsung Plasma. "Outdated" technology of course, like most people's impressions of film ...
