    Australian Bird eating spider, feeding

    Animals die so others can live. If it were me I'd put a 5.56 through that spider in a heart-beat...

    I did it! I'm thrilled! (several pictures)

    Very cool shots!

    Artistic nudes **Contains Nudity - NOT WORKSAFE**

    I like both. The shading was either well thought out or lucky...

    Having a devil of a time with a Nikkor micro lens.

    Everything is set to manual. Still I get the EE message in the viewfinder.

    Having a devil of a time with a Nikkor micro lens.

    I guess my problem is my D70 won't let me shoot manually. It keeps giving me an error message.

    Having a devil of a time with a Nikkor micro lens.

    Bought a used Nikkor 60mm macro lens and having a terrible time with it. Of course, no instruction manual. On manual, the camera doesn't let me do what I want and on AF the sharpness isn't there. Can anyone help?

    A day at the office

    Yep, the inside of a CB&Q steam locomotive cab. So sad it's just rusting away...

    Which DSLR Should I Get? Help Needed!

    Nothing wrong with Canon or their optics but I would at least check out the Nikon D70s. I use a D70 and it has performed great thus far...

    Nikon Macro lenses

    My Nikkor 60mm was $271 on eBay. Yeah, it's slightly used but a real savings...

    Just bought a Nikkor 60mm Nikon micro lens.

    It's used and of course no manual. Any tricks to this lens? I would think someone on this board has one... Thanks.

    an address of a site that sells repro lens manuals? Thanks.

    Macro with a D70

    What lens would you suggest for crisp close-up work with a Nikon D70?

    down to three cameras

    I've read about some Canon lens issues with a 10D. You'd be covered with a 20D. Tough to go wrong with a D70, D70s or Canon 20D.

    Camera suggestions

    In my mind it's tough to go wrong with Nikon or Canon. You may have to up your $800 figure a bit but you'll be getting a camera you will enjoy for many years.
