    I was wondering if theres any precautions I should take when taking my camera to the beach. I'm planning on going to Coney Island tommorow to take some fotos when i get back to NY and have heard that the salt air and your camera don't mix. Is this true or am I being too paranoid?

    I went to coney island in christmas time and it was pretty windy. Nothing happened to my camera. And good luck, its going to be freezing tomorrow. Why arent u going to the Red Bull Snowscrapers to take photos? That's where im going to be freezing my @$$ off.

    yea. These are the directions from some site I found:
    "Directions:Subway: F, V to 2nd Avenue – Lower East Side, walk East on Houston, and cross pedestrian bridge into East River Park.F, J, M, Z to Essex Street – Delancey Street, walk North on Essex, walk East on Houston, and cross pedestrian bridge into East River Park.Bus: M14D"
    I'm going there straight from school. ANd I will see what my 70-200 is capable of. If only I had a press pass.

    I have taken my D50 out to the beach tons of times with out any ill effects. You just have to protect it and monitor your surroundings. I live 20 miles from Galveston Tx so humidity is required.
