Shooting the Nikon D1X for National Geographic...

Vooral deze passage vond 'k schitterend:
Back in the mid-1980s, he told the Geographic's editors, he was assigned by Sports Illustrated to do a story about the athleticism of fighter pilots. He was shooting from the back seat of an F-16 flown by the Thunderbirds, the U.S. Air Force's aerobatics team, when he dropped a film cartridge while changing rolls, and it fell beyond his reach. To the Air Force his film cartridge was now "FOD" - foreign object debris - and because debris can interfere with cockpit controls, it scrubs the mission. But McNally's pilot thought he'd try a trick. He rolled the F-16 inverted, and the cartridge fell onto the canopy above McNally's head where he could grab it, simultaneously ending the FOD condition and saving McNally's butt.

Coole story!

Iets wat niet meer zal gebeuren met een 4 Gb Microdrive, 3xhoera voor de digitale fotografie...
