    I'd like to see them make . . . .

    A random thought generated by mass quantities of dark roasted coffee in the wee hours of the morning:

    I'd like to see an add-on contraption that would convert my ho-hum to use tablet into a view camera with movements.

    That's it. That's the earth-shaking idea.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    Why are you drinking coffee in the night? I didn't do that in many years working nights. One really strong Aero-Press coffee per day https://aeropress.com/

    A good tablet with a lens that swings like the Aero-Liberator would be a start.

    It seems you could not have any time for making photos after spending most of your time responding to so many threads. Could you let us know how many sheet film images you have made this year?

    Drew that is earth shaking. Other than not having the controls of my Canon G11, I almost prefer the images I get from my tablet.

    ... or maybe just a filter that would mask the mean-spirited, angry, curmudgeonly posts... and those in which folks “challenge “ others to “prove” their commitment or skills.

    I participate in a number of fora of different types and this one is The Best! By far. I attribute that to the advanced age of many of us.

    I'd like a low-profile leveling head that tilts more than ten or fifteen degrees so that I could use it alone as a light, compact and stable (unlike a ball) head.
    And a camera bag from the same people who designed and manufactured the Tardis, of course.
    Thanks, but I'd rather just watch:

    I want to invent a spot-meter with an integral bottle-opener. You know, something practical we can all use...

    Mark, I'll be on that idea tomorrow. A little JB Weld... should be finished and dry by happy hour.
