it must be backpack season?

my wife didnt want me to spend much buying a backpack, so i bought a backpack insert off ebay, was about $50 nz delivered. pretty good, but to big for my intended backpack :( so ended up getting a lowpro flipside 500 as everywhere is sold out of the 400?

ill post up a shot of the flipside 500 packed for reference for anyone else.
but it has a 70-200mm, 150-600mm, 50mm, 85mm, flash, filters, camera w/grip w/24-105mm, macro tubes and 1.4 tele

if anyone is after a backpack insert, i have one going for the cost of a box of beer :P

I also bought one of those internet back pack things. With the same outcome. Although, I'm not completely dissatisfied. This is the one I bought:

$80 ish landed in NZ. For a chinese product it seems very very well constructed, and half or even quarter the price of something similar from lowepro.

So far I've stuffed a 5d, 16-35, 70-200, and 50 prime in the main compartment, and a flash and some other bits in the other. Hoping to fit another body and lens in the main compartment, and somehow squeeze in a couple more flashes.

It also doesn't give you much indication it's a camera backpack, and main compartment opens from the front which is a nice security feature.

Yep. Hello Aaron :) Mine looks very similar only the inside is a pretty orange and the whole thing is a bit squashed flat. I didnt particularly want a back pack, can not wear them but as you say, once organised it will be usable and protect the 6d and lenses and filters etc. I think mine was around 50 landed in NZ. I also have a gear buying addiction. ;)

Oh I think we all have that. I have been looking at film medium format camera and a new macro lens.

G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome)
some thing everyone who visits this site probably suffers from, myself included :P
i think it is a well documented phenomenon with everything from tools to car mods to kitchen appliances(this is my wife's G.A.S issue).

lucky here at least its something good like cameras!!

lucky for use all, i found a page from Petapixel, which may help, not sure, didnt read enough, got side tracked with more photography gear (macro rings off ebay!)

(note, i may be slightly more active on here, im bored of FB and trying to move away from constantly looking at it)

Hmmmmmmmmmm I think I would find that easier to use than my 6D ;) my first camera was a Kodak 116 folding camera. The consideration list is, new tripod, mine is falling apart and at least 37 yrs old, 70-200 f2.8? f4? 100 mm macro and decent flash. oh yeah maybe a 650D  :p:-P:cry::rolleyes:

what type of film was used in a kodak 116? i guess its bigger than 35mm, however it doesn't look like it the same shape? more rectangular?

37 years from a tripod, thats impressive! some of the ones i have looked at recently are far to expensive, maybe if they lasted 37 years, the cost per year is very low, but at over 1k its hard to take the plunge -? so will stay with the few hundred dollar one for the moment.

I would say that would be 120 film, aka medium format film. But having never used one it could be a guess. It would have been back in the day when the camera didn't have a meter. Which makes me ask how did one get good exposure.

yea You know I think one of the reasons why we have GAS is because we like to create and new stuff my help us create something different.

Well that's my story and I am sticking to it.

i have only used 35mm film and thats only over the last year, so anything bigger than that i know nothing of. so will have to google 120:D

im about to show my lack of experience again here, im assuming the older cameras like the kodak mentioned still have aperture and shutter speed?
then i guess it would be trial and error and making notes and comparing them to the photos to get the experience?

116 is a roll film introduced by Eastman Kodak in 1899 for 2½×4¼ inch negatives (nominally 6.5×11 cm). The film stock is 70mm wide: wider than that of 120 film.

In 1932, Kodak introduced 616 film. This has a slightly slimmer spool (originally metal rather than wood). Kodak discontinued both 116 and 616 in 1984.

With some ingenuity, 120 film can be used with cameras designed for 116 and 616, as can 70mm film. Remember that if you respool 120 film onto 116/616 spools and have it developed at a lab, you must ask for your 116/616 spools back. Otherwise they'll be thrown away!

above info from here:http://camerapedia.wik​ia.com/wiki/116_film (external link)

no meter in camera, auto nothing, in fact one had to 'cock' the shutter. The meter was in your pocket, and this is where the 'sunny 16 rule reigned supreme. https://en.wikipedia.o​rg/wiki/Sunny_16_rule (external link)

The tripod is a Topman, extruded u shape 3 section aluminium legs with clip adjusters. The plastic bits in the head are self disintergrating, I suspect uv damage. It was by no means top of the range, just what I could afford and justify at the time. No bubble levels or compass, just basic tripod but I suspect for movie camera it has a pan head.

ouch... I bought another cheap server last week purely to fire up every week or so & do a backup & then shut it down again. It's not an offsite backup, but at least it's another copy of stuff.


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II converted for IR, and now an M5
