  1. Re: Reveni Labs Remote Control Mechanical Shutter Release

    hmmm, 1-2 second delay is much better than the usual screw in timed releases I've got. The price is in Cdn which means it's super cheap for U.S. buyers. Might need to add this to my camera bag,...

    Re: Hello from Far Quebec

    Welcome to LFPF Ivana, you'll find a very accommodating and helpful community here.

    When you say northern Quebec, are we talking north like Ungava or James Bay kind of north ? ;)
