Hmmm… a volcano. This is going to sound very inhumane of me, but (forgetting human suffering for a moment) a natural disaster at least makes a nice change of pace from all of the bombing in Afghanistan and tanks on the West Bank.
I’m finally getting very fed up with my RayOVac 3-in-1 battery charger and I’ve done a search on Google Groups and found that everyone else is having precisely the same problem. Great.
I’m trying to decide whether to shoot for a Sony DSC-F707 or a Minolta Dimage 5 (not a Dimage 7, cycle time is too slow for not much more resolution). Really I want an Olympus E-10 for the low-noise/low-light capability (again, no E-20 for cycle time reasons), but there’s no way I’ll ever afford it. Okay, so really I just want a D1X, but then given my skill level that’d probably just be wasted loveliness anyway.
No, I can’t afford to shoot film. I don’t have the equipment or patience anyway.
