    Way to help the cause, proving that the ol' girl is still worth something
    I like pictures if industrial stuff like that. Wish I had been in photography when I lived on the East Coast (lived in Cresson, PA for a few months, home of the Unbreakable (TM) Comb factory). Not a whole lot of industry/manufacturing around where I live, or in CA in general.

    I bent the pins in the card reader slot and felt the 10D was worth the rebuild cost. Got it back after the repair and overhaul and the camera works better than new. They went through the basic camera functions and updated the firmware. I have since added a 50D to the fold. I started shooting in raw and the added pixels make a lot of difference. Still have, and fully intend to keep, the 10D. A real tank of a camera!!!
    Best health, Frank

    haha yeah. I took mine to the Canon service center to get the sensor cleaned, and had them count the shutter actuations while they were at it. It was at about 79,600! Factory rating is supposed to be 20-25,000. I've put another thousand on since then I'll shoot it until it breaks, but hopefully that won't happen until I can afford an upgrade (likely a 40D).

    AAAHHH.... Shame...

    This shot is particularly interesting to me considering that I actually worked for Beth Steel back in 1999 (I actually worked for Lukens steel which was bought out by Beth steel and brought to the ground. :( )

    Still know people who worked for the company.

    I guess that is what happens to the companies that are not well managed and when the management does not know much about the business themselves.
    Chronic flipper...

    Cool! Watervliet? If so, my dad used to work across the street at the Delaware & Hudson Colonie yard.
