    Hey Nocturn...

    Check out some of the pics I put up from Vero Beach, FL. They're in the Dodger's Spring Training thread in Sports Bar.

    Best shot right here. Nice and sharp. Good color saturation.
    Good Job Glenn.

    All with the D200 and the 400mm?

    Well, my D100 didn't sit on Ebay for 24 hours before someone purchased it. I gave the person a pretty good deal ($450 for the body and battery-pack with some extras), but I'm glad I sold it so quickly. I'll be shipping it off to Boulder, CO today!

    That's awesome.

    I just went and picked up the multi battery base grip for the D80. Makes a hella difference in weight and simple gripping. The new Digital SLR's are too small for larger hands like mine. I always had the feeling I was going to drop the damn thing especially when I had the big glass on.

    Also picked up a nice Giotto monopod for quick fauna shooting stability.

    Some time in the next 2 weeks I'm going to have my wife buy me the 60mm Macro Nikkor for my b-day. What a nice wife she will be...


    I shot off some more bird action last eve. I'll post them in a bit.

    So like the retard I am, I managed to drop my EF 24-70 f/2.8L the other day onto a carpeted hardwood floor. It landed just wrong, and I managed to bend the rear mount 0.02" out of plane, so just enough not to mount. I drove it down to Irvine today (1.5 hr from Burbank), flat repair rate of $156.00, and they had it on the bench within the hour (back probably tomorrow). They offered to clean my 5D for free to boot.

    Just thought that perhaps someone else here might be as retarded as I am one day and would like to know how much a lens gravity test costs.

    Repairing any kind of camera equipment isn't cheap. I had a set of AA batteries that were less than two weeks old blow up inside my flash last year just before Thanksgiving. Four weeks and $180 later I had my flash back. I guess that's still 1/4 of the cost of a new speedlight, though.

    Note to self: DO NOT EVER USE COSTCO KIRKLAND BRAND BATTERIES AGAIN.
