    Ha ha.

    There are several units out on the market in this price range - I was looking for practical experience with them.

    Lab quality isn't the holy grail either. The labs around here are OK,...

    [OT] Photo printer recommendations?

    My photo printer is out of ink. It is from the previous generation of dye based inks (Canon iP4000) so the prints fade fairly quickly.

    Rather than re-ink the printer, I think it is time to replace...

    That's what I would hope. But the paperwork says to be eligible for the extra 4 years, you have to send it in. I'll call as soon as I have the time to sit on hold. Maybe not until after the holiday....

    Yes, I can read it, and know what it says. I was wondering how hard that requirement was in practice.

    I mean if Nikon produces a quality product and is willing to stand behind it for 5 years from...

    I'm in the USA. For my lenses, I'd like the extended 5 year warranty if possible.

    Am I too late already? If not, paper or online?

    Product Registration?

    I got my D80 in May, and have picked up a couple of lenses since. I've been lax about registering them.

    How important is it?

    Should I just do so online, or send in the paper cards that came in...

    My Canon iP4000 is out of ink again, so it might be time to replace it. (This model uses the pre-ChromaLife inks, so the prints fade pretty quickly. But otherwise I'm happy with the printer.)

    Nikon 18-70mm barrel wobble?

    On the refurb vs. new question previously posted, I decided to pick up a new copy of the lens.

    I mounted it on the camera and went out shooting. I notice that the end of the barrel has some play...

    Opinion on buying refurb Nikon lens?

    Sensor wet cleaning, good enough?

    It was time to do a cleaning, since I had a sizeable dust spec showing up in all shots at f/5.6 and higher.

    After cleaning the sensor (D80, Sensor Swabs, E2) I did the shoot the sky, auto-levels...

    I would have thought so. 5 days in DC got me some dust that a blower won't take off, and shows up at f/5.6.



    The swabs are relatively pricey, so hopefully it won't take too many :-)

    I'll give that a try. (I do notice that Photographic Solutions recommends E2 in preference to Eclipse for the D80.)

  15. D80 sensor cleaning. Sensor brush? Which wet method?

    Up until this point I've been able to get away with just using a rocket blower.

    Recently I have a persistent spec that the rocket blower won't remove. I'm not looking for dust; this shows up at...

    Sensor dust in A620

    Looks like I've managed to get some dust in my A620 sensor. It shows up when stopped down, at f-stops the scene modes sometimes use as well as ones I use in Av or M. (f/5.6 and higher)

    It looks like the Whickey and Cox should fit this setup fine. It compromises accessibility for space and security.

    What about the Customary Barge?...

    In the store, the $5M looked like it would be too small. Seemed bit shorter than the $6. Are you happy with the way your kit fits in there?

    70-300 VR II plus D80, what bag?

    I ended up buying a Crumpler $6 Million Home, but I'm not terribly happy with the way my D80 fits in it with the 70-300 mounted. It fits, and the bag closes, but the combo is tall enough that the...
