Roland, I agree about 10 years ago a guy drove around Australia with a combi van made into a camera same principal. the image was reflected onto a 4 foot square white wall mounted in the back of the van and took a photo of that.

Gravis: young beautiful girls should not make love without being paid because this devaluates service from professional sex workers and is killing prostitution :-)

Roland Karlsson: Now guys - what are we protecting? Is it the tree? Is it the view? Is it the piece and calm environment? Unfortunately we have to accept that any place that becomes popular is going to be spoiled. That is the law of it. Only not popular places are left alone. We are a lot of people on this planet, and more and more of us can afford to travel. Not only do that add to our CO2 emission and destroy the planet, it will also destroy this tree.

And on popular places, selfies and groupies is one of the more annoying pollutions on popular places. There are always lots of f*g tourists in front of everything. Please take a step back and we can all take a photo of that d*d statue. In some places there is a lawn in front of it with - do not walk on the grass. Thank you!

your getting a bit carried away don't you think , have you ever owned a tour business in an environmental heritage area before ?

I always remember a sign sitting on my first employers desk it read " are you here with the solution or are you part of the problem"

In reply to:

Donald B: Top quality cables need to have an extruded metal plug not a folded one.

had to many bend backwards in the middle of a shoot , and if you look closely they will do the same because they have finger joints in the plug. and don't appear to be extruded.

Donald B: where are the sample images ?

thanks, was looking for macro type examples. as their images don't really give an example of sharpness just arty style images. I stack canon filters and their are only certain lens that can be used for ultimate sharpness.

The main problem is the plugs are not extruded they are folded so they bend back with the slightest movement . Mine has an e longated countersunk hole so the plug gets slid down and then you screw it on the camera, its fiddly but works great when your shooting for 13 hours straight, you cant afford a breackdown ,you will also notice it raps around the grip so it doesnt rotate.
