    Anyone have recs for places online to host your work, get some exposure, competitions, portfolio etc? I've tried a few but haven't found one I really love yet.

    I sold my Kiev 88CM , it was great shooting on a MF setup, had plenty of lenses on it as well, 200mm, 45mm, 35 i think fisheye, 50mm, couple other stuff...but it was nearly impossible to travel with. after a a short weekend trip in nyc lugging that and all the lenses, true soviet steel with all the weight, i decided it was time for lighter rig.

    Hey, I'm looking to buy a camera in the $200 range.

    It will mainly be for taking pictures of stuff in my room to sell on ebay and B&S, so things like portability, zoom, and ability to take pictures of moving objects aren't important.

    So what camera(s) will give me the best quality pictures at around $200? (I can go a little higher if it's really worth it.)

    ^ am sure you can find something on amazon that's suitable, maybe an older canon s90 or pana lx5 ? those give very good results and can surely be found on sale now that newer models are out ...

    in hopes of doing some nighttime long-exposure shots, i picked up an after-market IR shutter release and a Voigtländer 15mm f/4.5 Cosina Super-Wide Heliar , supposedly very sharp and with a 110deg field of view.

    What shah suggested or an olympus e-pm1 with sigma 19 or 30 mm lens would run you about $250 and give you significantly better IQ

    Have Fujifilm Xe-1 /w 18-55 in silver and black coming in a couple of days. My first first nice camera outside of canon point in shoot. Novice user here. That is a nice strap, thinking I might pick that up, anybody know a company that make half cases in that type of leather? Couldn't find any of the net. Thinking of grabbing the strap from etsy and half case from Kazahttp://www.kaza-deluxe.com/detail.php?id=176 in black. Not sure if that will look bad

    I'd match the colour of the strap with the half case if I were you.

    Yeah I would want them to match, but i like the etsy strap b/c it will age. Wish they made a half case like that.
