John,

$3,000 for the Epson RD1???!!! Remove one of those zeros and I might be interested, otherwise I'm going back to van Winkle's corner of the Catskills!

No, not a salesman at all. Want me to point out the things I don't like (price, cropped sensor, price, price)?

Viesturs has good stories about turning back. His first attempts at two of the mountains (I don't remember which ones) had him within 100-300 yards of the summit when they decided it wasn't worth going on. For that fateful trip in the book, there were three groups. Ed's decided to wait a few days because of the weather while the others decided to go on.

I'm not a climber at all. My top is the visitor center at Mt Ranier that I can drive to. But my girlfriend has done some climbing in the past and took me to the lecture (which I enjoyed).

John

My interest is in both old (prior to 1980) film cameras (35mm and larger) and the latest digital cameras. When I speak of cameras, I mean still photo, as in Leica, Roloflex, Nikon, etc., not motion picture.
If there was enough demand, I wouldn't mind adding some dedicated film forums to my site. At the moment it's mainly digital related, but it doesn't have to be.

Snarkish has a photography section - like the rest of the world, it's mostly digital mostly but I notice there's a thread started today about Polaroid film.

I think you'll find some of the old CIS crowd over there.

The Photography Forum on Compuserve is still alive and kicking. There are still a few people who use film! In fact there's a thread running at the moment about Kodachrome 25.

There's a lot of in depth knowledge of digital photography and image processing there and you no longer have to be a paid up Compuserve member for access -- just sign up when you log on the first time.

There is also a good one for outdoor photos called outdooreyes. Some of the photographers on there are amazing and they are always willing to give tips and hints.

I will second that. I used to be a moderator of a couple of forum sub-sections until I ran out of fingers to put into pies!

Have you tried also forums at http://www.testfreaks.com/ ? There is a wealth of un-biased information regarding digital photography and components on this forums, and anyone wishing to research a particular item, or looking to find whats hot and whats not should look here for sound advice from a massive community of electronics enthusiasts.
