I found photorider on Facebook and sent him a pm last Thursday, asking if he knew where nifty might be.

A very quiet fellow, that one.

I will send it to Levina this week

I didn't got the chance to use it as I intended because of my move to Sony recently, the Nifty won't auto focus with the Canon adaptor for some reason, and as you know, it's a PITA to focus the Nifty manually, so on my trip it didn't got used as the trip lens as I expected, but I do have a few shots and will post soon :)

Just a heads up, I shipped it out to itw last week. Should have gotten there Friday. I apologize for not contributing this time around, work had me travelling a whole lot and I wasn't home often at all.

At present we would like anyone wishing to host have at least a 200 post count or have been active on POTN for a year. Hopefully this will reduce the number of people that do not participate in a timely manner, or "forget" to move Nifty on to the next host, or simply don't care.

* Though, this doesn't seem to alter the fact that people tend to forget to send Nifty on and tend to post very little... with some exceptions!


To sign up to be a host, please copy the list completely, add your name to the bottom of the sub-list that is your area of the world, paste the entire list into a new post with your name added..

Tossing my name on the list, though it looks like it may be a while before Nifty appears in the Chicago area...

Hey Kurt, I don't know if we've had this conversation but I'm originally from the Dundee area. :)

I don't think we have.

Nice to see somebody that is at least a bit familiar with the far west burbs of Chicago.

I grew up in Hillside and then moved out to South Elgin after I got married to a girl that grew up in Elgin.

After reminiscing through my last possession of Nifty I realized that I did quite a bit with it in the 3 months (February 2014 - May 2014) that I had it. I thought I had it longer than that but that move seemed like it took forever. I was feeling bad that I had it for a long time and hardly did anything with it. But really, 3 months isn't a long time and I did take it from Chicago to Atlanta so it was well traveled (about 850 miles).

I have a couple of ideas for new places I'd like to take Nifty to. This last time I took it to the old car city and I think I might try the airplane junk yard when I get it again. I heard it's a cool place to take photos at but I'll have to call them and ask permission as it's not a museum like the car city was It's just like a junk yard. There are some other places I'll bring it to that I haven't shot with it yet as well.

Can't wait!

I lived in Carpentersville for most of my life. I've lived in Georgia for about 10 years now. I did an 11 month stint up in Illinois back in 2013-2014. The cold winter made me change my mind about moving back up there. That was a brutally COLD winter that year!

Nullmind pm'd me that he would send Nifty to me "next week". But that was two weeks ago (October 21) and I haven't received anything yet.

How about everyone posts when they send it with the tracking number. Then everyone also posts when they receive it. Doesn't have to be a photo. Just to help us keep track of it.

I like the tracking number idea. It would help in keeping track of these a little better.

It's also proof that it was sent to begin with
