Hi all,

Just got back from my local Wolf Camera and found the Tamrac N-45 strap on clearance for $8.60, normally $17.99. If you guys are looking to upgrade it may be worth a visit or phone call to your local Wolf or Ritz. Here's the strap:

I bought an N45 strap 8 to 10 years ago and I use it on my FZ10 now. You will really like it. I think I paid about$10back then. The quick release strap lets you take it off when storing in the bag.

Thanks Rookie,

The quick releases really are a nice feature. This strap is certainlly better than the one supplied with the camera. It's good to know I can expect such long service out of it.

Thanks!

Same here Rookie. You must live near Gastonia? I really enjoyed your photoshop tips a while back. I just bought a Wacom tablet and I'm hoping to get into it a little more. I caught some of the work done by Bert Monroy and it's very inspiring. If you haven't already been to his site its www.bertmonroy.com. It's worth the visit but is a little out of the scope of digital photography. Its hard to tell some of his work from actual photographs though.

I live in the town of Weddington. Quiet little berg (at least for now) in union county.

I like photoshop for picture correction but it is so difficult to learn. There are many ways to do the same thing. I found out this weekend that printing black and white prints works very good if you convert theImage Mode to Lab Color. I have not figured out why, but it significantly improved the picture compared to RGB and Grayscale. If anyone knows why, please tell.

I checked out the websdite you mention. He is quite well versed in photoshop. I am not an artist, I can not freehand draw to save my life. I will stick to photos.

Rookie,

I should proably stick to photos too I appreciate the tip on printing black and white as well. If there is one thing about photoshop that I do know, its that there is more than one way to skin a cat! Thanks for the advice and happy shooting!



Best regards,
