    Re: Because Speed Graphics are cool

    Nice. I had no idea so many varieties and so few quantities of preanniversary speed graphic were made. Looks like my 1927ish $100 100% reliable beater is one of just a few hundred.

    Re: Portable electric room heater

    According to youtube and it's worth considering.. The cheapest outlets are junk and you get way better ruggedness and reliability spending $5 instead for an outlet which is still very reasonable.

    Re: Discussion on Tripod Heads for 8x10

    The 3047 is inexpensive, but it's also much taller (higher COG over the tripod, so not as desirable) and not as solid as some of the other options. It's probably fine for a light 8x10 with wide angle...
