How about just storing it in the charger brick. That's what I do but I would guess that some of you out there think that is a bad idea. If so, why?

SD Cards and Airport Screeners

Thank God digital photogs don't have to worry about airport departure lounge fogging their high-ISO film! But what about SD cards? They seem to pass fine in one's carry-on luggage.

No. Forget the 1.33 cropping.

If you put a 24 mm lens on, the bright lines show what the approximate frame is that you are capturing. It is what the camera "sees." This is actually much...

M-Series Quick Release Straps

Do any such products exist?

Once you attach the (fairly cheesy) standard strap to your M8, a process that takes about 5 minutes assuming a modicum of physical dexerity, you may not be inclined to...

Judging from my 50-year-old Hasselblad rig, "chrome" will last longer. My black Hassie lenses (all much newer by definition) show plenty of "patina" otherwise known as wear.
