    The definitive word on equipment vs. skill

    This is also quite hilarious and has a certain ring of truth

    . . . . wait for it . . .

    this forum doesn’t discuss point and shoots.

    Yes, I've seen that one before.

    We need to save the link and every time we get into that sort of debate on here, just post it up.

    Wait, there are people here who aren't regular readers of the lensrentals blog?

    Thanks for the link Richard. You must be pleased that the term "sharp as a tack" could be used in that forum as well as this one.

    That was freaking funny.

    So can anyone recommend a lens cap? I lost the original that came on the lens and I figure if I have to buy one anyway I might as well upgrade....

    Note that no one's betting against you.

    Very punny!

    One good pun (if that even exists), deserves another....

    Well, to tell you the truth, I can't recommend the Graintex. If you need to send it in for servicing they try to claim impact damage.

    Cicala has a way with words, n'est ce pas?

    I have a good few "smegma" nails, indeed of variable sharpness . .

    It's not what the hammer does do but, what it could do should I have the desire to do it.

    I laugh.
    writing up those thing already means: those guy are only proud of owing a Rolls Royce and all the way talking about how good the car is .
    then they end the reviews with driving the car from the garage to the back lane.

    We are looking for and learning from good photo. Tool is tools, only good photographer can make good shot happen.


    anyway, is fun in seeing all these response.

    Matter of fact...

    I actually use a high tech hammer that has a tuning fork built into the handle which will absorb some of the shock when driving nails. It works pretty nicely too!

    Hi Richard,

    Can you please advise:
    The Stiletto TB15SS or the Graintex SH 1660 for camping? Maybe I should go for the Tekton rubber mallet as suggested by Ken Rockbuster.

    Trying to find the right tool for the job.
    Regards.

    It's a poor carpenter who blames his hammer.
