  1. What's the best camera to take photos of dinos? I will go on Safari in
    2 weeks and need something to take good dinosaur photos.

    Look for something with a shutter delay of -a few million years ;-)

    I'd choose one with a metal body - You don't want to damage it now,
    would you? Then again - If you are shooting Raptors, then I'd go with
    Plastic... You're going to need all the speed you can get!

    You need one of those cams with a little bird inside that carves the image
    onto rock. Unfortunately they're not in production any more. Check ebay.

    Lack of a sense of humor is a sign of mental illness.

    What about the Sigmanodon, a large lumbering creature with the tiniest brain
    of any dinosaur. It's unique atributes was a large single eye, but some
    scientist believe it had three lenses which gave it better vision. It's was
    a slow moving beast which made it easy prey to the Canonsaurus Rex. It was
    often preyed on by the nimble Nikonodon. The Sigmanodon had a loud bellowing
    call that announced it's presence where ever it went. Theory was this was to
    scare off challengers, however the only preddycated it's own extintion..

    George is your PBase ID Imageprocessing? If not, then don't refer to his
    shots. Show us your images instead...

    But the Leicacania was at least reknown for the best vision. ;)

    No, no, you need an ANTICIPATORY shutter. It fires even before you
    decide to take the picture (by about 65-100 myr.) :)

    First go the library and check out a copy of Arthur C. Clark's "The
    light of Other Days". After reading the book, decide which type of stable
    worm hole you want to develop. I think one type was based on bucky balls
    while the other was based on compressed vacuum technology. (It has been a
    while since I read this book.) Anyway, one you pick the technology, then all
    you have to do is find a billionaire to finance the development. While they
    are at it, ask them to invent a WHTD (worm hole to digital) converter.
    If you don't like this approach, check out Michael Crichton's Jurassic
    Park series. Cloning is probably closer to fruition.

    Didn't you notice the MINUS SIGN ("-") in his post? he said Shutter
    "delay" of MINUS a few million years:)

    Now in my book a negative delay is the same as ANTICIPATORY, isn't it???
