  • While I have no useful advice, your post did bring back a fun memory. In the early 70's I hiked from Lake McDonald to Saint Mary Lake and out of the park. I needed to get back to the start so I ...
  • Doug, I had the same complaint about the hood/lens cap. What I have done is to get a 67mm step up ring and snap on cap. Works much better. I have not found the right 67mm hood, I have a rubber ...
  • Is it possible to change the battery in the iUSBport in the field as easily as you can with the UDMA2? That feature and the speed are real advantages to the UDMA2 for traveling backup in remote ...

  • This one from work at the Duke Lemur Center.
  • Thanks, that was my guess. At least that is how I rationalized pulling the trigger on it tonight:-)
  • Is the IIs still in production? Or are they running through existing stocks?
  • If you go to the north try to get to Marojejy near Andapa. I work at the Duke Lemur Center, we have a post doc working in that area studying Silky Sifaka. It is stunning from what I understand.
