I bought the Vanguard pistol grip head with a shutter release and am disappointed in how heavy the head is. That's my only problem with it. I noted the weight before I bought it, but really didn't figure in the combined weight of every thing put together and toting it around. They are pushing 4lbs. with the grip head alone. I bought after mkt. plates for my other cameras, because Vanguard wants way too much for extra plates.: Larry

That's why we put big shinny enjoins in 90 year old relics, Its fun, faster, and get's lots of attention. I like what someone said about taking that creation to a wedding, but you might get shot if you didn't also have your regular gear: Larry

I would to try this out on my Dad's old German press camera. It's a Carl Zeiss in very good condition, with a leather case which has several thin metal plates, and one thick plate with six black paper pulls, sort of like the tabs we used to pull out of the old Polaroid land cameras. Which plate do I make the hole in? I have been looking for project, and would like to try my Sony a7r with one of these plates. Can someone give me some insight as to which plate to use. I already have an extra adaptor : Larry

I'm glad they had people in the shots, to show massive those rooms really are. Larry, X Cave diver.

On 1939: England in Color (part 2) article (171 comments in total)

I really enjoyed this trip to the past. I have a lot of great B&Ws from my Dad's ventures through England and Paris during WWII. He was in a photo recon P38 squadron , and had the best cameras available. I can't believe how much you can blow these negatives to, and are still so sharp.

On Another Hasselblad rebadge or Photoshopped hoax? article (187 comments in total)

That's not even a good Photoshop job. The grip is really fake looking and the LOGO should have been softened so it doesn't look like it is standing off the body. and there would be a little perspective in the text. The letters are all the same size.

On Panasonic GX7 First Impressions Review article (1201 comments in total)

I finely got a look at the bottom of the GX7, on the Panasonic home page. The tripod mount looks way better engineered (magnesium plate) then my NEX7, which is at the Sony repair center right now, because the weak tripod mount was breaking out of the thin plastic holding it in place. This occurred while only using a light Sony 18-55 and an equally light Tamron 18-200 which is not any heaver then the kit lens. I am very disappointed in an otherwise really great camera. I can only shoot using a tripod because of the shakes now days, and must have camera that has a decent tripod mount.

Not much of a sensor when going against ACS-C competitors. I guess that's why their 60X 1200mm is no more then Canon's SX50 1200mm. I agree that their LCD and optical resolutions are behind times: Larry
