Make Kevin Prime a $10,000 Champion


(1/3/2012)

Here's Kevin's plea:

"I have raced vintage snowmobiles at Lucky Thumb in Kingston, MI since 2003. I race 2 vintage Arctic Cats in the single cylinder class. I've entered a video contest to win a $10,000 sponsorship from Champion spark plugs. I AM THE ONLY VINTAGE ENTRY IN THE SNOW & ICE CATEGORY OF THIS COMPETITION and could use your help to get ahead of the newer sleds.

Select VOTE FOR ME on the right of the video and create an account to vote. Registered voters are also entered for a chance to win prizes. Voting ends Feb 5th. You may vote once per day. Please vote as much as you can and share this with your friends. Thanks."

The amount of ceramas and lenses that I have had come and go from my collection over the years would easily reach three figures. Some I kept for just a few days before selling on, some a few years, others I still have and use now. I have whittled it down to about eight or nine ceramas and quite a lot of lenses.It really depends on how much money you have to spend, what type of photography you intend to do and how much space you have to store them! )If you ask me what ceramas/lenses you should consider buying then I will tell you to buy ones that can be used a modern day DSLR either with or without an adapter. I currently shoot digitally with a Ricoh GR Digital as a compact and a Canon 20D as my more serious tool. The beauty of Canon is that it allows me to use several older manual focus lens systems with my camera body and achieve infinity focus. Therefore I look for ceramas and lenses that are also compatible with my DSLR body.I currently own a few SLR bodies but the film ones which I currently use are a Sigma Mark 1 (M42 mount) and Contax RTS (C/Y mount.) I have quite a large number of lenses for these ceramas, all of which I can use with my Canon. After using many, many SLR bodies, these two ceramas are now my final two' which I am so happy with, I don't ever see myself selling them. If you see them for a good price (and the Sigma can be very cheap) then don't hesitate to buy them.As for compacts? Well I have always liked the Olympus MJU II (my carry everywhere camera), Olympus XA and XA2, Olympus Trip 35 is an essential in anyone's collection, and Leica Mini II.I think that owning and using a TLR is a great photographic experience. I loved mine but sold it after it got little use. You should certainly use both 35mm and 120 film ceramas to gain experience in MF shooting. Be sure to experiment and use many ceramas which are fully manual, no electronics, manual everything! It will help you with your photographic technique and skills.There are no ceramas that everybody should have in their collection, it is all down to personal taste and the other reasons I listed above. Good luck with the collecting! Be warned though Gear Acquisition Syndrome can be very expensive!. Was this answer helpful?

The focal length range of 14.5–300 mm cvoreed by the new zoom lenses represents the most frequently used focal lengths in theatrical motion picture production, a range that often requires a combination of three or more separate zoom lenses. Canon’s new wide-angle and telephoto cinema zoom lenses, however, offer a wider angle and powerful zooming to provide complete coverage across this range with just two lenses. The new wide-angle cinema zoom lenses will offer the industry’s widest angle of view among 35 mm digital cinema lenses with a wide-angle-end focal length of 14.5 mm*2. http://qepowjc.com [url=http://wrodkvt.com]wrodkvt[/url] [link=http://wgtoylnk.com]wgtoylnk[/link]
