Friday Duck Blogging

This week’s quote is from the unfairly underrated Cabin Boy, and no, it doesn’t have any special personal meaning for me:

“She seems completely uninterested in me despite my smoldering obsessiveness.”

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s ducks:


They were just kinda walking around in circles for no apparent reason.


Mallard, I think.


Um, can ducks interbreed with turkeys?

    Eli.. Can you suggest a place to buy a digital SLR (body only). Online preferrably, one that you might have used in the past or know of? Thanks much appareciated.

    I would recommend jr.com, bhphotovideo.com, or newegg.com (cameras aren’t their specialty, but they’re the gold standard of online retailers).

    What kind of DSLR are you looking at?

    I have a Minolta with 2 maxxum lenses that will port to a Konica – Minolta DSLR. Not that I have any significant photgraphy skills but hey atleat I won’t be spending $ on film just to find out the results.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Bad News.. from the Konica Minolta web site…

    Konica Minolta Photo Imaging, Inc. ceased the camera business on March 31, 2006.

    As of April 1st, 2006, Sony Corporation is providing customer service for Konica’s, Minolta’s, and Konica Minolta’s cameras (excluding Film-In cameras) and camera-related products except for the binoculars.
    For information about customer service, please click “Contact & Repairs”.

    For support information, please click“Support”.

    So now I have to figure out if those maxxum lenses are of any use or if I have to go to a complete new camera. Oy!

    Sony’s digital SLR A100 takes Minolta maxxum lenses, so I should be ok.
