Today I made a handgrip for my Praktica LTL3.
The LTL3 is very big and heavy and in the 70s a built-in grip wasn't very common.

What you need:

_ a grip of a hammer
_ a sheet metal (I used one of an IKEA rack)
_ screws (2 normal screws and a screw of a camera bag (I used the screw of the original bag of my Zeiss Ikon Nettar 518/16))
_ 2 (shim) washers (I used the washers of one of my Shimano XTR V-brakes)

_ saw
_ screwdriver
_ bench vise
_ drilling machine

First I cut the wood-handgrip to the right size. Then I flexed the sheet metal, 'cause the sheet was a 90°angle one.

After a 15minutes-work the grip for my LTL3 was ready:

And it works great!

Some days ago I bought the december 1998 issue of the DIGITAL CAMERA magazine.
The headline on the cover is:

Yes, this in 1998 and they showed a Leica R5 and a Leica Digilux which has got just 1.5MP on the cover with the headline.
And even the Pro-DSLR's in that time like the Canon EOS D2000/Kodak DCS-520 had got only 2.0MP. Aehm sorry, but every 35mm-toycamera is a real full frame camera;)

But okay, for me the question between film and digital isn't important, 'cause I'm still using both systems.
Therefore comes now my camera-picture-review FILM VS. DIGITAL:

1. Kodak Instamatic 224 VS. Sony Mavica FD-73

pixels: 0.3MP (sensor size: 1/4" CCD)

lens: Canon 1:2.8/39mm (35mm equivalent)

3. Nikon TW zoom VS. Medion MD 40696

Nikon TW zoom

lens: Medion 1:2.9-4.7/35-104mm (35mm equivalent)

5. Canon T50 VS. Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D

Canon T50

pixels: 12.2MP (sensor size: 22.2 x 14.8 mm CMOS)
lens: Sigma Zoom 3.5-5.6/28-80mm II Macro (1:4 - 1:2)

What is important? film/digital or just the picture?

Forget TTL, AF, zoom lens, Power booster, full automatic, program modes, white balance...
For me the only good photographic invention in the last 40 years is PHOTOSHOP.
But even photoshop doesn't make good pictures.
YOU make the picture. YOU decide!

On Photo Safari.

Come on, a visit to the zoo isn't such boring as you think. I was at the weekend in the zoo and used my Praktica LTL3 and the Paximat 4.5/80-200 to shoot some drowsy animals.
But I adjusted the camera totally incorrect, aehm certainly calculated, because I wanted the Peter-Beard-Effect ;)
