Pete, some really cool pictures there!
And wow, Grelf - you've done a lot of work on plaid jello. Nice.

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.
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.
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 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.
Pentax Optio SV is perfect but according to reviews the lag time is horrendous...
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.
It's a very rough environment.
But have a good time, anyway!!
