    35mmguide

    Guys, some of you already know about this, but Mats and I are starting another Guide. This one covers the gamit on photography. Should be a very interesting project. The name though 35mm oriented, is somewhat of a mis-nomer, in that we really are full service photography.

    At this point, the forum is basically established, though there could be some various iterations of it yet. The Guide will have 100 entries by the end of the weekend. We have not really established the site as officially open yet. But if your interested in photography, either 35mm, digital, or motion, I encourage you to go ahead and join the forum. Nothing helps to build a forum like numbers, and right now, we need members!

    Come on, join up!

    35mmGuide

    Thanks,

    Lex

    Please excuse the HTML in the title line. If you notice, it did make it active above this message. If Mats cannot fix that so that it works right, I will take it out of the message header. I asked him if he could make this work, no answer yet.

    Thanks,

    Lex

      Hi Lex,
      I tried to register on the 35mmguide site and kept getting timeout errors.
      So, I'd like to ask you here about my choice. I am buying my wife a 35mm compact camera for Christmas. She takes her camera EVERYWHERE, so this camera will get alot of use and punishment. She has prebought about 60 rolls of regular 35mm film so this camera cannot be an APS model. The last two cameras, an Olympus Stylus 140 and Olympus Stylus 105 both broke within 2 years (out of warranty) so another Olympus is out of the question. I am considering either a Minolta 140EX or Minolta 150, OR a Pentax IQ Zoom 105WR. Have you any experience with any of these cameras or have you heard anything about their dependability? The Pentax looks especially appealing to me due to its' lower cost and the class 5 weatherproofing. I also would prefer passive AF rather than IR. Which would you get or do you recommend a different camera?

        Merc, please try again now. We seemed to have a server slowdown which is resolved now. Usually, just pressing your back key when that occurs and trying again is successful. At least by the 3rd time.

        If you can't get in by tonight, I will comment here

          Look long and hard at the Canon Rebel EOS. This is the most popular camera in America. I've used Canon products literally for decades. Both for pro and hobby uses. Never had a problem with any of them. There are aftermarket waterproof housings avaiable for it. But I strongly suggest using a dedicated underwater cameras. No, not the Nikon, its too expensive for anyone but a millionaire. Check out these...
          Professional quality products to take your camera underwater for scuba, snorkeling, surf, or pool photography. Made in the USA since 1962.

          Yes you do want a separate camera for underwater work. Why? Because it no fun having your good camera ruined if/when the housing fails, and losing all your picture taking ability when on vacation. I speak from experience on this

            Lex,
            This time my registration went through, but when I tried to post, I got this error message:
            Error Occurred While Processing Request
            Error Diagnostic Information
            Error resolving parameter ATTRIBUTES.MESSAGE


            ColdFusion was unable to determine the value of the parameter. This problem is very likely due to the fact that either:

            You have misspelled the parameter name, or
            You have not specified a QUERY attribute for a CFOUTPUT, CFMAIL, or CFTABLE tag.

            The error occurred while evaluating the expression:


            Message = ReplaceNoCase(attributes.Message, "&#124;", "&&#35;124;", "ALL")




            The error occurred while processing an element with a general identifier of (CFSET), occupying document position (39:1) to (39:74) in the template file G:\WEBHOTEL\ID313\CFBOARDS\DSP_POSTACTION.CFM

            The specific sequence of files included or processed is:

            I'll try to post again tonight.

              Merc, we had some problems this afternoon, but have re-booted the server, and things seem to be running optimally now, so please do try tonight.

              Thanks Thomas, and for those that don't know, Thomas has gratiously agreed to assist me with 35mmguide.com. So, expect to see his name in lights soon.

              Lex

                I should have ask if you are set on getting a compact rangefinder camera? You're at the mid to high end of those and a really closing in on SLR pricing.

                Personally I've never been impressed with any of the offerings they are too expensive for the limited capabilities the cameras offer.

                For virtually the same cost, you can get a compact SLR with the similar features and then you'd be able to see what you're taking a picture of.

                This is of course my personal preference. I consider point & shoot cameras to be disposible and refuse to pay more than $150 for one. Then if they last beyond the warranty period good deal. Repairs are too expensive so they get pitched.

                If you're set on the ones you describe then I suggest Minolta. My experience is that in general they are more durable than Pentax
