Metal Print Savings, Franken Camera Mark II & Working

AdoramaPix has a 30% deal on Metal Prints- Get your work printed directly on metal- it looks beautiful, unique and is so easy to care for.   Shop this link and support the site Use Promo Code: PXAFN30SUNDAY-FUNDAYWe currently have the Olympus Air in for testing - this is that little camera module that communicates wirelessly with your smartphone or tablet and provides a standard micro 4/3 mount.  This means if you have any micro 4/3 lenses from Olympus or Panasonic or say a MetaBones speedbooster laying around (like I do) you can also throw Canon lenses on there. Sometimes I don't have a good reason for doing something other than I just want to see if it will work- It does, and works quite well, even the Image Stabilization in the 70-200 works!  So this is the LGV10 coupled wirelessly to the Olympus Air with the Metabones speedbooster and then the Canon 70-200 f/2.8.   It all provides a 140-400 f/2 Lens :)
