Pete, some really cool pictures there!

And wow, Grelf - you've done a lot of work on plaid jello.  Nice.

To reciprocate, I'm at

For those following the war, the pictures of the guest house at Ramot, Tiberias, Rosh Pinna, and Safed are all in areas which, according to the news, have been hit with rockets.  Several places I've seen on the news are places I personally stood just 2 months ago.  TriL, from what I remember, is in a completely different area - but still, I am hoping we hear from her soon and that she is well.

So, new Nikon DSLR coming out in 15 days. The little they show you on
their web site looks like a D70 form factor, but this camera is 10.2 MP.
Their teaser text makes it look like it will be positioned as a prosumer
model. So I am guessing they're taking the processor and sensor from the
D200 and merging it with the D70 body to outpixel the Canon D20/D30 right
in the same price range. If so, it'll be pretty kickass.

I'm not sure if they're going to to replace the D70 or come out with something between the D70 and the D200. Either way, I'm sure Nikon's coming out with another great camera.

As for me, I've been rediscovering film cameras. I've been buying these old rangefinders off ebay recently.

For certain things, you just can't beat film.

finally joined the real world with my first digital camera. It's a Canon 630SD (6.0mp)

I kinda miss film, but since I'm a pretty crappy photographer, it doesn't make that much difference. 

I'm still having issues with viewfinder thing though. I like to see it with my eye!

Funnily enough, I'm following the same route Ragnar is, and eschewing digital for old school film cameras. I've been having a blast with my Kiev past week or so, waiting on my roid back to be delivered so I can play even more.

I still have my Nikon FE I use once in a while. With prices so cheap now I should pick up a few others.

Nikon D80.. looks like a bargain at the price! Too bad I already have a D50 that's hardly broken in yet (only around 5000 shots on it). Oh well, I would hate to be the guy who just bought a D70 last month...

D80 has a lot of potential, no doubt about it.

I just picked up a Ricoh GR Digital. A great little pocket camera. Too bad it's so expensive.

One thing I love about it, is that it encourages you take shoot and experiment.

Yea the Ricoh's a sweet camera. Definitely too rich for my taste as I would leave it in my pocket, and probably sit on it and break it :) Right now I'm looking for a lower priced pocket camera with full manual exposure, ISO 400 or higher and a macro mode.. unfortunately these are rare. The Canon S520/530/540 would do the job great but it's too large. I want something tiny, but manual.
Pentax Optio SV is perfect but according to reviews the lag time is horrendous...

Check out the Fuji F30. I think it will fit your needs perfectly. ISO 3200 sound good? :)

Wow, nice. The only flaw is it uses xd cards and I already have CF cards for my old Fuji and for Jaimes Canon.. and SD for my D50 and for my Treo.. and to get into another format is kinda annoying. Especially since I have an SD reader (only) in my laptop. But I think I might go for it.

Yea looks great. Thanks. Fuji rocks, I was madly in love with my S602. I was looking around and got excited for a minute.. because the F20 looked like it was still everything I wanted for $100 less than the F30.. but no, they took out the manual mode. So looks like it will be the F30. Dissapointingly it didn't come up in dpreviews search.. I think he doesn't do such a great job keeping that database current.

Phil's conclusion:

To sum up, the F30 is far and away the best low light compact camera on the market today, bar none. It's the perfect 'social' camera for the DSLR owner who doesn't want to lug all his or her gear to parties, and it is - in expert hands - capable of superb results in any light. I would even go as far as to suggest - funds permitting - getting one for low light work even if you already own a camera you use for daylight shooting... So then, Highly Recommended unless you rarely shoot indoors or at night.

Well, I got it, now I have to return it. The "Manual" mode is not manual at all. It allows you to set several different parameters but NOT shutter speed or aperture. So your exposure choices are AP, SP, or Program.. NO full manual. Unfortunately this means no small camera for me at Burning Man, as I am leaving in less than two hours. I will get back just in time to return this as I will be gone 13 days.

No can do. Anything that goes to the desert LOOKS like it's been to the desert.
It's a very rough environment.

Here I am in a hotel in Reno. My plan is I will get some disposable cameras for when I don't want to carry the SLR. It's a poor compromise but it will do.
