Here is the first page of 'strip it down and start with the frame 101' show and tell ...

Hey Jaffer. I'd love to read it but the link will not come up. I'm doing a 2a now and a 7 when it's finished.

Re: Frame Build Up 101

Nice looking frame!!! I wish they looked like that up here (MN). Took a look at the rest of your web site as well. Very nice!

Re: Frame Build Up 101

Jeff-
It's the Kodak DC3400 I got for X-mas.
It even has a close up setting (I should have used) with a 0.8 to 1.6 foot focal setting ...
It produces great color rendering and the only draw back is the usual, limited flash range in a dark enviorment.
Before, I had to shoot all the pics on my site with my 35mm Nikon and develop, then scan the prints ... the dig camera is GREAT!
Adobe PhotoShop can import the images directly from the camera in the background of my NT Workstation while I'm doing other suff ... like reading this BBS ...
