Seems like the right section to me.

I agree, apparently the thickness of the OP’s skin is illustrated by his remarks along with a perceived “power of the pen”

I’m not a Canon guy but a friend asked me to sell her deceased husbands AE-1. It is in pristine condition. Looks new. Has strap, Vivitar 28mm 2.8, Jagar 80-200mm 4.5, 2x converter, Sakar auto27B flash, original instructions, caps and custom Coaslar bag. Looks lik everything may have been a kit. I don’t have a clue as to value, looking for offers. Would be great addition to Canon collection.

I plan to make a trip into the Hill Country on March 22nd, even though there is currently a 50% chance of rain that day. My itinerary will include Willow City Loop, SH 16 from Fredericksburg to Cherokee including Babyhead Cemetery, SH 29 from Burnet to Mason, and Park Road 4 near Inks Lake and Longhorn Caverns. My SUV (with my photo business logo and contact info on the rear window) is about to log a lot of miles that day. Hopefully I'll see some of the Texas Hedgehogs along the way!

Blue bonnets are in full force now. Lots of moisture this year will produce bumper crop of wild flowers. Willow City Loop, Hwy 71 from 281 to 16 is great. Grass is starting to grow and warm weather is here so don’t wait too long. Paint Brush and Indian Blankets will mature toward end of Blue Bonnets.

Open the battery compartment and assure it's empty and doesn't have a corroded, long forgotten battery. Using ebay to determine the 'recently sold' price is getting harder. On KEH you can see them listed around $125. I sold some stuff to KEH recently at an in-person event. They wouldn't even make an offer on the AE-1 I'd brought along. Of all the items you mentioned, the camera body is the only item of any value and would fetch probably $100 or less if you can find anyone interested. If there is a corroded battery or the door can't even been opened, it's now just trash.

Battery compartment looks pristine like the rest of the camera. Thank you very much for the advise

I looked there under complete items and noticed that most don’t do a good job of noting condition or what brand the lenses are. Also , this camera has Jager flash and lense and I don’t know their value if it is good or bad

A close friend whose husband passed several years ago discovered a pristine Canon kit while cleaning. She has asked me to sell it for her. I’m not a Canon man and have no idea where to start, but I knew the hogs could help. The kit is a Canon AE-1 program body, vivitar 28 2.8 auto lens with uv filter, a jager 80-200 macro 4.5 auto zoom with uv filter, a Jagar 2X tele converter c/FD, Jakar auto 27B flash, all lens and body caps, Canon instructional manual, heavy camera strap, and a coaster shoulder bag. All appears to be in like new condition with only a few spots on exterior of bag that could be cleaned. I need advise on where to sell this gem and what it is worth. Thanks in advance for the advise.

This my first attempt to post so hope no rules are broken. I am attempting to shoot a micro of the orchid with a Nikon d750 and a Nikon micro 105 lens. Focus is manual, ambient light and apature and sutter were adjusted to present a balanced histogram. No post has been done. Would like criticism of shot

Does anyone know how the Manfrotto 455 or 3401 rates? Thanks

As the original poster hadn't mentioned used or new, my in-going assumption was new.

I've picked up a number of extremely sturdy, used tripods, and several with heads. Among them are: Bogen 3251, Bogen 3035, Bogen 3033, Bogen 3046, Manfrotto 475B, Gitzo 1320, and a Bogen 3021. I own new Manfrottos 055 Aluminum and carbon fiber, and like you, the carbon fiber is nearly worthless when the wind really gets up. I do get some additional weight when I hang my gear bag from the center post, though.

If I don't have to hike too far from the car, I use a Bogen boom weight in windy conditions. I also shoot a lot of medium and large format film, so heavy and stable are really necessary with slower speed films.

I believe you can set the 750 to shoot in DX mode when using DX lenses and there will be no vignette. Check manual.

I know how to Google and I have examined all the offerings on eBay for a while. Your response is presumptious and a waste of both our time.

If you don't have a camera to sell please save your patronizing advice for your own children.

WOW, if you want to get slammed just offer Zeitguy a helpful suggestion and BAM!! You will get slammed.

My mother-in-law succumbed to this dreadful malady. To me it is worse than cancer because it can take to long for them. Plus you have no ideal what they are going through.

Yes, horrible for the afflicted. Can’t imagine the fear as the condition progresses and then so grateful that in it’s latter stages the patient may not comprehend their condition - such a blessing. Then the burden shifts to the caregiver (70% die before the patient). The financial burden is horrible then there is the daily task of watching your loved one slowly die and having to make the decision to prolong their life or allow them too pass due to preventable causes over and over again. Such is my wife and life of 60 years.

Looks good Jack. I only wish I could afford it. May I make a suggestion. The bear photo was meant to highlight the lens, but the over-sharpening makes one wonder if it was needed to make the lens look sharper than it is. IMHO.

Not to change the subject of the post, but I’m curious how one can tell if the image has been processed or is unprocessed from the camera/lense
