Nine ways to treat your batteries right
Previously, I talked about the basic facts behind batteries. Now, let's talk about how to put them into practice...
The Wirehead Arts guide to batteries
Batteries are the lifeblood of all photographers. Even film photographers have fun with batteries, because our flashes and meters and whatnot all end up requiring power. And, even more than memory or film, batteries are one of the biggest items we're always frustrated by. My G7 and most digital SLRs are fairly nice, in that you can (and should) pull the battery from the camera after you are done shooting and stick it in the charger. But then I start dealing with batteries for my flash.
Polaroid saved?(via)
So it looks like Polaroid might be saved after all. Again, see how the important part was that they purchased the original factory and hired some of the original engineers, just like I pointed out they'd probably need to do.

Richard thought I'd find this interesting. He's right. :)
Modding a dSLR to take FD lenses(via)
This guy takes a Canon EOS D60 and mods it to accept the mount from a Canon AE-1p so he can use FD lenses on it.
Pentax joins the wide-angle club(via)
Pentax announces the P70, with a 28mm-e wide angle. Yes, people are suddenly realizing that it's more useful to go wide than long. I'm not complaining, given that I've been saying this for years now.
Not every camera you own needs to do everything!
Joy and I were discussing gear purchases. See, he's been selling some of his cameras and trying not to make the same camera purchase mistakes a second time. He read my article about how I'm not usually subject to gearlust like everybody else, which is why I haven't sprung for a full-frame digital SLR, like the D700 or the 5D Mk II. We were talking about the Mamiya 6 & 7 rangefinder cameras, which is pretty much a lust object for me...
