Nikon F3 Used In Indiana Jones and The Temple Of Doom

Back in 2011, at West Auctions in California, a small and unassuming camera sold for $10,100.00. The camera was a stock-standard Nikon F3 and MD-4 motorized winder. With a modified back, the camera had been part of the making of a Hollywood Blockbuster. The name of the movie was Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom. The scene in which the camera was used came to be known as ‘The Mine Chase’.

Surf Photography (Land) Just Got That Much Easier

We have found out that more and more surf photographers are getting rid of their 600mm lenses and in doing so purchasing the new Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 USM lens.

Canon 600mm. With a price tag close to $12,000 this is why you don’t see many photographers (hobbyist and professional) shooting with one of these.

Canon 100-400mm. For $2,200 this will enable that many more photographers to be able to shoot from the land and yet get full frame tight photos.

What Canon has to say:
Telephoto zoom 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 lens is compatible with full-frame EOS DSLRs, as well as APS-C sized sensors where it will provide a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 160-640mm.

Where Can I Get My Contax T3 Repaired

“This is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken with my Contax T3 point and shoot. Joel Tudor had just finished surfing Pipeline and was walking up through the Pipe trail and I had my camera and just asked him to stand there and let me get a shot of him. Surfing magazine ended up using this shot as a full page.” – Jack English
