    Maybe the latest cool accessory will be a big rubber band to hold it together- and it will cost a mere 10 bucks.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Rapid Omegas 100's and 200's


    In theory..they should be GREAT..interchangable lenses..rangefinder focusing.. even swapping film backs on the 200 (right??)


    but man..what a clunky system that always felt like it was about to fall apart

    and that ratcheting that film deal.. it got stck more times than not

    I'd still like to have a 200 with a 58 & finder..but.. oy

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Back in the Eighties(remember those) I was given a vest by Agfa(remember them) which was a smart silver grey with Agfa Professional emblazoned on the back. My family said that "you are not going out with that on!" and I never did!

    Why's that? Someone going to shoot you for wearing an ugly vest?

    I don't use/wear one but if I thought it would help my photography or make things easier I would, in a heart beat. I don't give a rat's arse if some people think it looks dorky. In fact, in some cases and places, I'd wear something simply because certain people thought that.

    Funny thing is, in the right place, they don't look dorky. On a PJ covering an anti-government riot in Lower Slobbovia or wherever it looks cool. IMO, anyway.

    I've never had one, but in the field I think it would b a good idea. Takes some weight out of the bag and gives quick access. I saw one which was a mesh with pockets on it that I thought looked better. And somebody makes one that's like a field jacket with sleeves, (Domke?), so at least with the sleeves on it's un-dorkified.

    Considering that these days people do all kinds of things to their bodies, with everyone trying to be The Illustrated Man, and with stuff hanging off their eyebrows and out their noses, and those saucers in their ears, a little anti-cool might just be the best statement to make.

    It's in the manual I think! You have to buy a Photomic viewfinder before you can put batteries in. But now it's too late as you can't buy them batteries any more.

    But you can get the Wein Zinc/Air batteries, that work quite well. Trick is to save the sticker and seal them back up between uses, if you are going to let them sit.
