I bought this decanter some years ago and I don't think I ever got the chance to use it. Well, it did make itself into a nice subject to photograph though.

This Canon SLR was manufactured sometime in the 70's and has seen many days since then. Has some general overall wear and dirt, but the film compartment is clean, as well as the prism and mirror. The 35mm lens is in great condition, no scratches or pitting. 200mm lens is a telephoto and has no defects as well. Camera is still in serviceable condition and would make a good student option.
I picked up this vintage camera at a local rummage sale one day. It had some wear, but was in pretty good overall condition. I have since resold it at my Etsy Store.

The shot of my Ricoh TLX was featured on the Singlex product page for Camera-wiki.org, which I always love when that happens. Camera-wiki.org is a totally cool site to learn about vintage cameras.
Check it out.

Decided to reshoot this camera one time before I got it up for sale. I now have some studio space at work which is allowing me not only shoot their products in some relative comfort, but my stuff as well as time allows.

On Flickr I was invited to share the contents of my kit from Mike Duck of myphotokit.com. Since I shoot products for catalog and web, my kit is configured primarily for that purpose. The cheap Cowboy studio triggers are a life saver while being able to preview low res pictures on my iPad (RAW files are saved on the SDHC disc inside the camera) are both time saver and productivity enhancers.
1. Canon EOS 7D with battery packThis photo is posted on myphotokit.com. My post is here. There's a mess of other stuff I could have included (and in my bag) but left it at the primary components. When I can get around to it, I think I am going to photograph my Pentax Kit (i.e. film kit) and submit that in the future.
2. Canon EFS 17 - 85mm
4. Canon EF 75 - 300mm
5. Quantaray 28 - 90mm
6. Canon 580 EX II Speedlite
7. Cowboy Studio Triggers
8. Canon IR Transmitter
9. iPad with Eye FI SDHC wireless transmitter

The products I have to shoot for RJ Schinner are sometimes challenging. If its not black plastic bowls, it's white boxes and clear trash can liners. Anyway, this is a sample of what I shot today.
My main light source was the patio door at the right scrimmed back with an old shower curtain that my wife wanted to toss, but I saved just in case. At left was my circa 80's Bogen 200b monolight. Minimal photoshop on these, and the reflections you see from another salvaged piece of opaque plastic that I tend to shoot most things on it seems.

As of writing this post, I'm auctioning this camera via ebay -- I almost don't want to part with it, but I must.
