    I am sorry ... but that is a position nobody should ever assume.

    Is this a new technique to take stable shots at low shutter speeds. Maybe these pics should be added to some of the steady shot tutorials out there.
    BTW today morning there was an earthquake here.

    This is rapidly becoming the most entertaining thread at Dgrin.

    rolleyes1.gif I came to that conclusion about 17 pages ago. Man, this has got the be the cruelest group of photographers on the net. I feel right at home. mwink.gif Of course, after this last page my eyes are bleeding (note to self, watch my back when out shooting with dgrinners). umph.gif

    Wow - who knows.

    This was patented in 1976, and the exclusive rights to the patent expired 1991, if not earlier. So anybody could have made it/sold after the expiration date. The patent owner (assignee) was Mattel, but who knows if they ever made them at all.

    Perhaps Andy could get a nice, framed print of this image for Sid?:D

    I remember Sid saying he has a doll. I think he said it was a photographic large size, no wait uprezed doll, no I remember now, it was a blow up doll. :D

    Movie Review: An Inconvenient Truth
    as promised...

    2006. Running time 100 minutes.

    CAUTION, may contain spoilers!!!

    Al Gore, once Vice President of the United States, and once the Next President of the United States, brings viewers up-to-date on Earth's rapid and alarming carbon emission addiction. What may be an unstoppable buildup to a massive man-made global malady is thoughtfully introduced, expanded upon with conclusary future data brought to bear. Presented by Gore himself, with small ancillary biographical Gore vignettes throughout, this one-sided message is presented strongly and with ample scientific evidence. Not much contrary opinion is offered up in this documentary, and if this film has a flaw, that is it. The viewer is nonetheless bombarded with enough material to all but extinguish theories to the contrary. If we do not act responsibly, and soon, the Earth and Man is doomed. And perhaps, it is already too late.


    p.s. - oh, and I did see what would have been Sid's picture, if he had taken it.

    I had my BS meter triggered early on in the movie when he showed a graph of the increase in C02 over the last few centuries. He pointed to the left of the graph which showed the level way at the bottom of the graph a few centuries ago. Then he made a big deal of standing on a ladder to show where the level is today, then projected that he couldn't reach where the level would be tomorrow. The implication was that the C02 had increased by some huge factor. The only problem was there were no numbers on the graph, nor did he mention any numbers. Hmmm....

    A bit of googling shows that C02 has increased from about 280 ppm to 360 ppm, or around 27% since year 1700.

    However, Gore made it look like it had increased a tremendous amount by neglecting to explain what the baselevel and increments were. It was a thinly disguised cheap trick to make a small change look huge. After that, I really had a hard time believing anything he said.

    Cheers,

    As they say, "there are lie, blatant lie and statistics"..mwink.gif

    It's very unfortunate that it came to this. People try to deliver the important message, yet to be heard they start to use the same BS tactics as their opponents, thus rendering their own efforts useless...ne_nau.gif

    BTW, Sid, did you like the movie? rolleyes1.gif
