    I suppose I could do some serious snooping with this rig. The Ocean City Music Pier as seen from 600 yards away. Shot from the boardwalk at the end of 5th street. If I cropped out just the window and if there had been a person there I think you'd be amazed the detail. :eek:

    By the way, with this new forum software if you click on a picture it will show you a better image of it. On the pictures I posted above, these were first uploaded to facebook as small jpegs and then posted here. The raw files that come off the camera are far better than what you are seeing on this website but the pictures would be about 20 megabytes.

    Yup, thinking of a "widerboard" - with a diamond tail, as pictured on the m80 slim pictured online on the coil site.

    Its 90% the lens, 5% the camera body and 5% the guy holding the camera. Having a good subject to shoot helps too.

    was contemplating some overdue maintenance on my Carver...been putting it off coz cleaning and lubing bearings is tedious. finally decided that it's easier and well worth it to just replace the bearings for $10 with a set of Bones Redz.

    How long did it take for it to need maintenance?

    a couple of years for me, but ymmv...depends on how much you use it. I could feel it was getting slower and the C7 trucks just didn't have as much of that Carver snap anymore. that C7 front truck is a wonderful piece of engineering - worth taking apart just to understand how it works.
