    What's with all the scuff marks on the camera body?[/QUOTE]

    I don't know if it's scuffs from dirty fingernails or what. In any
    case, it's a pre-production model so who knows.

    It's still cute.

    If it's the same kind of finish as the 10D I can tell you those scuff
    marks are from fingernails scraping across there. My 10D could have
    doubled as a fingernail file with that finish! After a while it wears
    a bit smoother and you aren't cleaning that stuff off all the time.

    You're right. I keep my fingernails trimmed fairly short, so I really
    haven't noticed any such marks on my 10D until I ran the backs of my
    fingernails across that area. Sure enough, my fingernails wore off a
    little on the finish. Of course, the marks wipe right off.

    WOW! Imagine that. Brian and Darrell finally found a good use for a 10D -
    as a fingernail file! <bg>

    I would think at that price they would have a more durable finish.

  8. A diamond fingernail file?

    Yeah but it's damn hard to take a good picture with a block of pure
    silver <grin>.

    I've heard that if you break it down into small enough chunks, add
    a few other chemicals, and spread it over a thin sheet of plastic,
    you can somehow use this as a "use-once" sensor. Weird.

  17. I bet you still have LPs.

    Yes. But I haven't played them in recent years except to make CD's from
    them. A rather long process to do well. Unlike the analog crowd, I'm
    not convinced at all that analog recording/playback is as good as
    digital. In any case, the music I listen to will only be good for me
    while I'm alive.

    There is no means of preserving a digital image for over 100 years
    except the "gold" CD's (and that's reasonable). The CD's most people
    burn will give a shelf life of 5 - 10 years in reasonable storage
    condtions. Without maintenance, these images will be lost (unless
    archived on 'gold' CD's). There are no "gold" DVD's out that I know of.

    (Commercial audio CD's use a very different process and good storage
    conditions should be good for 50 - 100 years, I would expect).

    Oh, fiddlesticks! I even have 3.5" diskettes that are still good 15
    years later. CDs haven't been around long enough to know when they'll
    fail if kept in proper storage.

    I still own, listen to, and even buy LPs.
