    Just a coupkle of weeks after me using money to by a FujiFilm S1500...., they PUNCH the market with their newest supercamera: FujiFilm HS10.

    30 x zoom with a 24-720mm lense, panorama just by moveing the camera, video with 1000 pictures pr. sec full resolution, stabilizers all around, 3" display with 230.000pix and I don't know what.

    And this is not a DSLR.

    NOK 4.300,-

    (If I ever could hold on to not having a camera just a few weeks more)
    If you had done so, Fuji would have done the same.

    It's one of Murphy's laws.

    Ohhh... hikk... ark.... ehemmm... hrmpf..... ahhhh...

    (Just suffered a minor heart attack.... )

    The Canon EOS 5DMarkII has long been my dream camera by far: me want it sooo much, though, at the time, my relatively new 50D is still in a good working condition.

    So is my 35-350mm L lens...

    But the 1200mm lens is way too expensive for almost anybody which does not have a serious sponsor such as BBC or CNN behind them: theat is as PRO as you can possibly go. I had a plan once though... to rent a lens like that in Bangkok (yes, there you can rent them)... just for a day to get a feel what it was like.

    I might ask my friend there, which has one of those (he is a professional photographer in an un-named American news giant over there)... if I can borrow his for a few hours.

    I have recovered 90% from my knee operation. The last 10% is when I walk in steps and work in odd positions and feel I have a left knee down there...

    When it comes to that last post, I thought of Jan-Olavs image of the same type aircraft from the same company he took a few weeks back when it passed over Trondheim.
    And of course, I was a bit impressed with the photographers equipment, the size and what he can do with it....
    But even if mine is small, I belive I can do wonders

    I'M TALKING ABOUT THE CAMERA!!!!

    Big S --that last post should come with a health advisory. When Jan-Olav sees it, he may go into cardiac arrest. Ditto PilotDane...and He's already recovering from the tug shots...........

    and I hope you have.....um.....well....recovered.

    Thank you, I hope so too....., but suddenly I got a "wet dream"

    Let's say I won the lottery, and came out of it with NOK 150.000,-
    Then I could go out and by myself a Canon EOS 1D Mk. III with a Canon 1200mm lense. And what images would that give?? Take a look at this A-380 approx. 35.000 feet up :



    And the equipment looks like this :

    First day at work was ok.
    But of course I get reminded that I have at least one knee when walking stairs

    As far as playtime with my camera the next few days goes, we'll see.....

    You know, the images I posted in different threads today are test-images, and not images I'm particularly proud of
