This week, Shelton talks about the first SLR he bought for his son, Nathan… a Nikon FE… for $40!

Shelton bought his mum a Nikon D60,
and we’d like to know if there are any other ‘series’ of podcasts you’d like us to do (along the lines of the ‘wedding’ series we did a while back)?

Richard Annable wants your help

Filed under: D700,Nikon,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 10:58

Hi guys,
Richard Annable (yes, he of¬†“crap crap giggle giggle” fame) has over the last 12 months thrown himself 110% into his professional photography career.
And now he wants a new camera.
Trouble is, he hasn’t got the ransom money that Nikon requires of him.
So, he’s set up a website called helprichardbuyad700¬†and he’s asking for anyone who cares enough to just make a small donation to his cause.
What do you get out of it?
Not much.
Just a warm fuzzy feeling knowing you helped a guy to get better images.
Check out his blog on the site, too.
Richard is not seeking to get rich off this scheme. He has assured me that once the target is reached, he will close off the donations button.
He just REALLY wants a Nikon D700.
So, if you’ve got a few bucks lying around in your PayPal account doin’ nothin’, and you’re feeling the Christmas spirit…
Go to it.
Richard will be most thankful.

Shutters Inc – episode 114

Surprise!!
We’re back!
After some catching-up chit-chat, Shelton goes on to talk about
the new Sony a900,
Canon EOS 5D Mark II,
the Nikon D700 (which he’s about to get, naturally!),
and some more about off-camera flash.
Remember to learn those formulae, folks!

Guide number divided by f-stop equals distance, and
Guide number divided by distance equals f-stop.

And apologies up front for the “squawks” in Shelton’s audio… had some bandwidth issues while we were recording.
