"Wow. A Hasselblad? Guy hit the lotto or something? I can't even imagine spending 13K+ on a camera. He better have more money than he knows what to do with or be a really really good photographer"

Not the lottery, but he ain't hurting for cash. He has 2 or 3 Hasselblad systems for film, and got this one to 'play' with. I was really amazed at the quality of the pictures. Maybe I can talk him into letting me borrow it sometime. Need photos of my 'new' gun.

One thing I learned...if I ever go on another trip like that, I will be renting at least a 600mm lens. 300 just doesn't cut it for wildlife.
Yeah, I've seen your gallery, nothing bad in there. That's where I figure the best will be heading.

Yeah on the lens thing. I'm using a point and shoot, with a 12x optical zoom. It is frustrating getting some shots I want with it. I'm ready to move up. Two cameras I just heard of from friends. One is a P&S, but 42x optical zoom. Gotta read the reviews on the lens, yet. And another is supposed to be 800x. Yet to find that one. but I have good ggogle skills.
Don't be surprised by the barrage of pics I put up. I've been there 5 years and never put anything up. Its time to clean up my albums anyway. And most of mine are just interesting to me, not always good ones.
Glad you had a good time and got some good pics.

EDIT: Not changing anything, just making an observation. I may have good google skills, but my typing sucks.

Feel free to edit my post if you change the photo....

Great photos.

I really like that golden sunset.
Also noticed the shot of the killer whale.

3 of them? Jeez.

Well, try to borrow one. I'd love to try one out. Although for the price, it should make everyone's photos look like a professional's

This is kind of funny:



lmao...$699 a month?? For camera?

Yep, way out of my price range. He bought his off EBay for a little under $7k. His other 'Blads are the film type. I used to shoot a lot with them. Sweet camera. Just pricey.

I use to love the medium format stuff. Old Rollieflex TLR was a fun one also.

They really are quite strange looking too....very retro.

My dream is getting a full frame Nikon. Even that is out of my price range.

$699 a month, for 31 months AND a $1000 buys it.
Sounds like a good deal to me, but does it float?
I know that 's where an expensive camera would end up, if I used one.

Don't you love the way they like to use the word "Only" when stating the price.

Even if it's "ONLY" $38,000.00

Interesting observation- this thread, which hijacked Laura's Alaska Thread (not meant to), has now itself been threadjacked.

lmao... Is it possible to hijack a thread with another thread? Philosophical question of the day.
