So today was go the seminar day, not an off day but a working day getting some training so that I can teach them kids better.
Mostly it's boring but hey! if I can pick up one idea or new thing it's all good.
Unlike my camera:
That's some light leakage right there, a pretty bad case.
Not to worry though, I'm a gonna take care of that with this:
Got me some anti light leakage stuff.
It's adhesive backed really thin foamy stuff used for the light seals in the back of a camera.
It looks like there are only two seals in there, on the camera I mean, one on each side, but I gotta scrape off the old stuff before putting in the new.
That right there looks like it could fix about a hundred cameras cause them strips are really little and short.
Well I might need it cause:
I am certifiably officially out of my mind!
There's your proof right there.
Like I need another camera, I went ahead and got me two more.
Sometimes I can't believe myself.
I do have a good explanation.
I got me the Nikon D7100 cause it's a crop sensor thingy and I needed a little more length in my lenses cause I'm a football shooting fiend!
It was either this, or get me a Canon lens for the kids and I figured it's my cashola so I might as well get something I can use too.
Besides, I'm racking up way too many actuations on my other camera so this one will be for shooting sports, mostly.
I'm also getting tired of lugging my other camera back and forth to work so I'll leave this one there.
The other is camera is my dream come true.
I think I've been eyeballing a Nikon FM2 every since there was a FM2.
Black and nasty don't you know.
If you squint yer eyeballs at the other picture you can see I also got me the motor drive.
I mean what's a fully manual camera without a little bit of automation?
You know, so I can blow through a roll of film in like ten seconds.
Seriously though, I've lusted after an FM2 for like forever and since I got a film camera, I figured I might as well plunge and get the Cadillac.
So to speak.
Lemme tell you though, this is it.
The Flat Tire Command Center is moving at the end of the month and I'm a gonna have some major bills now so this is the end of Quest for Camera.
My wallet needs it.
On the other hand, there are a couple more pieces of glass I want, I mean need.
What's the use of having the camera if you don't have the glass?
I like the way you think Mr. Flat.
