About the Recumbent Reviews

Welcome to the fifth Recumbent Review!

This series of articles examines photographic equipment and accessories from an ordinary user’s point of view. You’ll find none of that snooty “I’m an expert so my opinion is the final word” guff you get from the professional reviewers you’ll find elsewhere on the interwebs. I’m too lazy and inept to go into a detailed technical analysis involving resolution tests, discussions on acutance, or anything else involving experimentation, exacting measurement, or a scholarly comparison with other equipment, but I’ll certainly not hold back on opinion and speculation. Ranting and raving are par for the course!

Hopefully you’ll enjoy yourself while learning all about stuff that will help you take better pictures and cost you money you should be putting toward your children’s college fund or something pink and frilly for your wife (or husband).

My Nikon Wish List

For the sake of my marriage, I want to make something perfectly clear to my wife… this wish list is stuff that is not available yet (that I’m aware of) — I’m humbly asking the good people at Nikon to consider these suggestions for new and/or improved equipment or features. I cannot spend any of our money on these things, my dearest Honey-Poops, because they do not make them yet.

I really hope my wife puts down the rolling pin and after the hearty, but polite, laughter subsides in Japan, maybe we’ll see a couple of my suggestions realized. Continue reading
