    In my neck of the U.K the temperature was 93 F yesterday, I avoided going out with my camera in the middle of the day, and when I did go out I just took a Canon F1N body with the 50 mm F1.4 lens, and even this was too heavy to carry for any length of time, (the F1 isn't a lightweight camera) and even wearing cotton shorts and a T shirt it was still too damned hot.

    No wonder you couldn't handle fighting us... *snicker*

    I don't like humidity but 86 degrees is almost a perfect temperature, so nice and warm but not too hot (unless you're in a business suit).

    The main reason Stone Britain lost the war of 1812 was we ignored one of the major principals of warfare to never fight a war on two fronts at the same time, and we were heavily committed to fighting the French Empire in Europe at the same time, without sufficient resources, because we are only a small island.

    Not shooting as much, but shooting with intent and not just burning film. Guess the 4x5 has me thinking more, and picking up my 35mm less. The divorce, being a single dad of a 15 year old daughter, and the new girlfriend haven't hindered me at all.

    LOL! But the point of experience is to learn when to run away and when to run with it!

    I'll be in San Clemente for a week starting on about the 26th if you would like to get together and share some prints.

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

    BTW, can't you take the battery attachment off? I have the 1V and used to have the 1N and sold the body and kept the vertical grip battery and thw 1V is just fine without the grip... Though I also don't think the 1V with grip attached is very heavy...

    Photography as with sex and wine, the older you get the longer it takes and the better it gets.

    There isn't a seperate bolt on battery attachment in the New F1 Stone https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Ca...grc=I7agsU6on8 and I don't have the power winder FN. or motor drive FN. The camera alone is solid metal, and with the F1.4 lens weighs 2 1/2 pounds, which is like swinging a boat anchor round your neck in 93 degree heat .
