Gold leaf with a pink leopard-skin interior.

Seriously, why do people really get upset about this sort of thing?


Big dreams, small wallet.

You guys/gals just don't know the HOG. He is the devil's advocate on every topic, just generally a disagreeable fellow. Just ignore him and if we're lucky, he'll go away. :lol:

lol, nahh, he has great insight and is very helpful in how to shoot tough situations, he's a keeper at POTN! :cool:

I actually have some vinyl fake CF look material laying around. I used it to cover a back of a tablet I bought, it gave it more grip and covered up all the manufacturer's stickers. I probably should get rid of the excess. I like the look of the hood with it on there though, much better than the scrapped up/scratched look they develop over time. Is it easy to remove if you had to put a new coat on?

Not knowing what it was, and the seller having not disclosed it was there, I was a bit taken aback when I first saw it. So, naturally, I began to peel it off. Then I realized it looked nice. And different. So I pressed the small part near the seam I lifted back down. It seems as if I could have taken it right off with no residue left.

As to HOG, I was joking, partly, at least, thus my :lol:

Wonder if it would start to separate in the hot sun during a day of shooting an airshow... ???

I probably have enough to do the whole body. :lol:

MDJAK...its all in good fun. I just call them as I see them. I don't hold back any punches just to fit in. Stir it up, not really. I just wish people would concentrate more on their photography skills and improving them rather than all this peripheral crap we discuss here.

Now lets talk about how to properly meter a Hawiian sunset without blowing out the sun and keeping some structure in the shadows.

I can't start discussing that because it will mean my wife will start talking about our trip again. It made such an impression on her when we went, she would go again at a drop of a hat. :)

Beautiful place, we most likely will go again, and then I will have to search all the topics on how to do that. :D

You'll need a set of these for your next trip!

as important as technique and development are, this forum would be a dull place if everyone treated photography so dryly. it's a hobby for a lot of people for a reason, and the process can be as enjoyable as the end result.

it baffles me when people around here say that the final image is all that matters. for me, it couldn't be farther from the truth. i shoot with old film cameras a lot because it's a cathartic experience for me. look, feel, and experience when shooting sometimes trump the reward of a well-exposed and composed image.

i think the stuff you deem as "peripheral crap" can be primary reasons for enjoyment of the craft for others. i don't know, there are a lot of things on these forums that i find irrelevant, but i usually just opt to ignore it and focus on what is important to me. the fact that you think you're speaking your mind and refusing to pull punches and fit in.. i think you're just unnecessarily giving people a hard time.

in any case, i'll wrap up by saying that i think a lot of the equipment rumor mill, arguments over things that are splitting hairs, and even hood coverings are uninteresting, but i wouldn't for a second suggest that it's crap. we're all different, and i think this forum is big enough where we can all enjoy ourselves without raining on each others parades, that's all.

My wife would love that, no doubt. For me though, its just not my color. :lol: Now that tiger skin, woohooo! Surprised they don't have a brick pattern, it would be perfect for the 24-70L.

Here in the midwest, this would be our version of camo these days: http://www.lensskins.c​om/Cracked_Up_p/cracke​dup.htm (external link)

I could put my lens and hood down on the ground during softball shoots, and lose track of them. :)

The main reason I wanted to do it is to hide all the scratches the hood had developed

It's the peripheral crap that ruined my sunrise pics on haleakala. I accidentally had a filter screwed to a filter and it caused ghosting and rings in my pics. Guess I'll have to go for what will be my fourth time. But alas, Paris is calling my name first.

You are completely right. Except for the film part. ;) :lol:

Another hobby of mine is collecting and using flashlights, mucho expensive ones. It would indeed be pretty boring if it was all about lumens and not the equipment also.

that's because you've haven't used one of these:

IMAGE: http://joeyc.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/rolleiflex28f.jpg

it's a goddamn work of art if you ask me and shooting with it makes you wonder how a 60 year old camera that works on springs and gears can be oh-so-smooth. :p

as for flashlights, i recently bought and used a klarus XT11 on my trip out into the deserts of utah, arizona, and nevada. i paid a pretty penny for it, but it's definitely earned it's place in my pocket. amazing little thing. :D
