    Looks dangerous. Don’t walk into something while you are looking through the lens.

    One Mamiya RB67 is going on e-bay soon. It’s one of the most beautiful pieces of equipment I’ve ever owned, but I’m just not going to be getting enough use out of it. I’m keeping the 4×5” rail’n‘bellows view camera for high-definition work.

    The D80 is the most expensive body I considered. I almost went with the new Rebel and this, but ended up with a 12-24mm Tokina. I have to say I’m thrilled — I finally have a camera that sees the world the same way I do.

    Shooting dSLR while driving is actually safer then with my pocket digital, mkh. Since there’s no monitor to look at, I just put it on ‘continuous’ and fire off 10 or 20 shots; one is bound to be decent. See this one which is the first of about 10, and my eyes mostly stayed on the road. With the LCD, I always got distracted trying to frame, and when I looked back up I was running some poor lady off the road.

    It is a very nice camera. I am a bit concerned about the driving/photographing thing, however. It is MUCH more distracting to the driver than is mere cellphone use. Or so I have heard. But if anyone can do it successfully it is Alesh.
