    Solidarity with Ukraine

    I am not sure we have any Ukrainian members, but our thoughts are with you and your families. We obviously have little in the way of political power, but I for one support the freedom for your nation and grieve for your losses. This is not the first time a country has faced Russian aggression...

    Looking for a reliable retailer

    Can anyone suggest a camera retailer other than B&H that you have found reliable? I just ordered a couple of new filters from B&H and one of them was clearly used. This is not the first time B&H sent me a new product that was used. I use Amazon as a last resort.

    Positive feedback for Darr

    I bought a Fuji grip from Darr, a GetDPI member. The item was described as lightly used. I could not tell the difference between that and brand new after receiving the product--it was in perfect shape. Darr is a long time member and has always struck me as someone that takes good care of her...

    Best Buy--who knew it had such good deals on Fuji X Pro2

    So I have been looking for a second X Pro2 body. I thought they were discontinued and I had missed the $200 off offer from Fuji last year. I was looking for secondhand. Well, imagine my surprise to see X Pro 2 bodies on Best Buy for $999.99. (For those on other shores, Best Buy is a mass-market...

    Sites and blogs on the photobook

    There are a couple of sites I like on the photobook. One of my favorites is The Conscientious Photography Magazine run by Jörg M. Colberg. I like Jorg's commentary because of his background not just as a photographic educator, but also as a scientist: astrophysics. He also comments on...

    The reading list--suggestions for books on, of, or about photography

    I will kick this off by listing two classics, two from last century and the other from the century before that: A Choice of Weapons. The autobiography of Gordon Parks. Parks is an amazing talent in his own right: photographer, director, novelist, poet, and composer. His biography just makes his...

    Books by Naoya Hatakeyama

    I have been enjoying the work of Naoya Hatakeyama for some time. He is a Japanese landscape photographer that is interested in the built environment. His first notable book Lime Works looked at the extraction, processing, and use of that material in concrete. And I am not sure this is...

    The World's most expensive pinhole camera...

    ...at least until they mount it into the telescope it is designed for. Pretty impressive pinhole image though: https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-54066586?intlink_from_url=https://www.bbc.com/news/science_and_environment&link_location=live-reporting-story

    Cambo Actus, thoughts, experience, or regrets

    Hi folks. I am thinking about an Actus B to mate my Fuji X system with my Pentax 645 lenses. I would be very interested in anyone's feedback on the B, G, or DB/2. I have used view cameras before, so using these types of camera (both film and with p25+ backs) are not new to me. But any thoughts...
