    Re: Chris Jordan Katrina book: shipped

    Hi Chris,
    I haven't logged in here for a while and just saw your post. I know I can order thru Amazon, it's just that I wanted a copy signed by you personally. You know, it does make a difference....

    Re: Seeking Old Lens Information

    Hmmn, I dunno. I have a very fast Cooke that has about the same features, but it doesn't swirl as much as the Petzval.

    you may have overlooked my question: do you take PayPal for European buyers? If you do, can you send/tell me your PayPal details? TIA, Norm

  7. Re: The newest iMacs - suitable for Photoshop work?

    Ha, I didn't tell you what model Eizo we have....not exactly the most expensive or newest one ;-) Other than that, wouldn't you think the OP might profit from our experiences?
  8. Re: The newest iMacs - suitable for Photoshop work?

    I can second the choice of an Eizo screen, they are superb and have great angles of view, meaning you can view the image from almost all angles without loosing contrast. We're not so hot on the...

    Re: setups for barrel lenses

    Glad you found a source for a c/r. Won't it be expensive though, to order it from a spiffy company like Hasselblad?
