    Camera's Operating Temperature

    Hi All, & Greetings to Seniors, I read in both Owner's Manuals of my Dynax 7 & 800si, that the cameras will and can be operated within these temperature ranges : -20C to 50C ( that's pretty much like in the Sahara under shade at 50C ). Are these claims by the manuals, credible ? Or do I...

    3rd Party Lenses

    Hi All, Greetings to Seniors, I think, if one's pockets are deep enough - then nothing but the orginals will do. However, I do so have just a few deep pockets ( though how I wish I have more ), I'd still try and save while I indulge in this hobby - I feel third party lenses are cheaper...

    Cash Expended

    Hi Everyone & Greetings to Seniors, I am not rich, neither am I poor. So, just average with some tendency to save a big wad - and splurge. My recent investment in photography equipment since April came to around S$4,000.00. I wouldn't kill myself, but I think my wife or mom might... if...

    A Curiosity - Which Hopefully Does Not Kill

    Hi All & greetings to seniors, It crossed my mind that I have read somewhere - in one of those rediculously priced photo mags - that one can effectively substitute studio phot0flood heads with a 300-500w garden floodlamp. Is this possible ? If it is, I found a hardware store that sells...
