    Will LF cameras quit working?

    Northwestern beat the Iowa Hawkeyes in a wrestling dual meet for the first time in 37 years. Is this the end of civilization as we know it? Will LF cameras quit working? What is happening to our world?

    Hardly earth-shattering news, is it? My LF camera will surely survive the demise of an obscure team no-one's heard of outside the US.

    Actually, I suspect a significant percentage of people inside the U.S. haven't hear of the teams either. But, I'm confident that they were wrestling in an analog manner, so I wouldn't expect any major shifts in the laws of physics.

    My LF gear stopped working only for a short time when the lenses tried to organize a labor union.

    Any time Northwestern beats another Big 10 school at anything competitive (other than perhaps the debating team, or chess) I'd have to say that it probably is the end of civilization as we know it.

    Scooter, let's hope you can point out the Northwest on a map. Isn't it somewhere above Alberta? tim

    Hmmm.... when Northwestern was founded (1850), was Chicago the Northwest? I don't think so. Maybe its original location was northwest of the center of town.

    Iowa Hawkeyes? Alberta near Chicago?

    Someone call Jack Van Impe. The four horsemen are saddled up and blowing trumpets!

    I hear they have the new digital trumpets though so we should all be able to follow armegedon on-line in real-time (I wonder if there will be any pop-ups).

    The good news is that the deardorff is still ticking. The Kodak 2D on the other hand is spinning wildly on the tripod and spewing pea-soup faster than Linda Blair on the Tilt-O-Whirl after a tequila and cough syrup bender.

    What's wrestling?

    Wrestling? That's weighing up the pros and cons of digital and analogue photography when you've got $5000 in your pocket.
