Handheld shot of my boy, Nikon D700 plus Nikkor 85mm 1.4 AIS @ 1/200/8 ISO 100, with Nikon SB-28 set to 1/32 "M" mode, with I believe a CTO Orange gel.

That's My Boy! by aNikkorGuy, on Flickr



Beautiful. I love it when I only reason I know a flash was used is because I was told...

My daughter has a D200. She is using my 50mm f/1.8 She is always grumbling how hard it is for her to get shots in low light. She even remarked, "I need a flash!" You guessed it, it is Christmas time. I bought her a flash. I'm sure I'll be playing with it and I suspect you will be seeing some horribly lit pictures soon

Man, that water looks cold!!!!

May I make a suggestion? When you go in for your exorcism, leave you cell phone at home. After my 1st exorcism, when I was "recovering" I sent some very stupid text messages. I stil don't remembering sending them

Really, it's no big deal.The "prep" is the worst part. By the time you get to the hospital, it's all down hill.

soapbox Ok, seriously guys, the test is a necessary one to do, and more people need to get over the "taboo" and have theirs done when they should. Like I said, the worst part was drinking the liquid in the time you have to drink it. For most people nowadays, you don't have that two week prep time other than avoiding red colored food for two weeks. Colon cancer, however, is supposed to be a really rough and painful way to die. /soapbox

Hi All,

Quickly some test shots with the newly acquired 180mm f2.8 from Schaffhausen. Nothing special but a lovely lens to hold and use.



Mark, these are great. I really like the first two. Looks like a very nice lens.

I hope my joking around didn't imply that a colonoscopy is not necessary. I am 60 yrs old. I've had two so far. Both Nancy's parents died of colon cancer. Neither had colonoscopies are a regular preventative measure.

I talk freely about it in the hopes that it makes the whole thing easier.

This test and many others help to ensure that we will live a long and hopefully happy lives!

and yes, try to take your own camera with you!

Cool lens and a good starting price! I bet Jose and John would be interested in this.


You bet, but I just dropped some cash on some m43 gear (taboo I know) and a 70-200/4 AFS (also very frowned upon).

It also looks like they've modified the aperture ring and the hood is missing. But for $900 . . . . .

Tough day for Higgs today. First trip to the vet. Poked, prodded, temp taken, and a shot.

He and Rocky actually together today. Good hard play that lasted 5-10 minutes. Maybe they will get along!

Lieutenant - just to say that I love your Verdun shots. We were there (and in Nancy) a couple of years ago. My wife and I had a picnic in the forest, among the heaving mounds of earth and trenches now covered with grass and trees, and we reckoned we could feel the ghosts. So many thousands. Gravestones everywhere, 'Mort pour la France', and so young, and (surprisingly) so many of them women. It wasn't scary. Just very moving. Our son was in Iraq at the time, and we felt we owed the departed our respect. The enormity of

Thanks for your interesting comment!
Glad you visited Verdun : very few australian (or US) tourists there!
A moving place to say the least and I undersatnd what you mean when you say " we could feel the ghosts".Talk about a tragedy : 900,000 Brits, 1,500,000 French and 2,000,000 germans were killed in the WW1 and around 300,000 just in Verdun.

Here is a shot of the ruins of the famous "Fort de Vaux" :

Thanks Scott and Monty. I didn't want Reagan to chicken out. I'm still surprised Reagan managed to not have this for ten years. It really is not that bad of a test, they knock you out pretty good so that you don't feel anything. You get driven home, and relax the rest of the day and enjoy the meds.

Now if you want to see some funny colonoscopy material, check out Robin Williams' description of his during his "On Broadway" show back in 2002, I think it was. He does use lots of "vulgar language" but that and the end piece talking about a certain ED medicine had tears rolling down our eyes and us all doubled over in pain from laughing so hard. My husband was sitting in a hotel room in Montgomery Alabama, and I was up here, both of us watching but not knowing the other was watching. I was watching with my kids.

Well said Monty. A necessary test indeed and joking helps take some of the stress out of it. So should he take the telephoto or wide angle lens?

I am 61 an up next for this examination in 2013. There is effective sedation or full anesthesia, the latter is riskier. Best to "Man Up" and keep your risk as low as possible.

I'll pitch in if that helps Reagan.

Just don't put tubes on the lens, whichever one you are taking. And leave the reversing ring at home, please!


But seriously, anything to stay healthy.
