Hasselblad H3D-39II, Medium Format Digital SLR Camera with 39mp Sensor & 3" LCD Display. I purchased this camera in lieu of paying rent on my apartment for 4 years, and believe me when I say it was worth it. I used the box that it came in as a hat and some other boxes for a home. It's uncomfortable but the pictures I've taken of my new home are so sharp that you can see the fleas on the brick I use for a pillow. I can also take high detail pictures of my children (who I am no longer able to see due to court order resulting from gross negligence) from an acceptable distance. Highly recommended! more

Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens for Nikon DSLR Cameras Well, I finally decided to spring for the Sigma 200-500 f/2.8. For under $30,000 I couldn't pass up the deal. I know, carrying a 37lb lens around may seem like a chore, but the savings in gas to drive to photo shoots more than compensates for it. I actually do most of my Florida and Georgia area outdoor wedding and landscape shoots from my rooftop now. The IQ is tack-sharp even wide open at 1000mm (w/ 2x converter, obviously) The issue I had, was when the FBI and Homeland security showed up at my house. I was shooting a wedding in downtown Orlando, which is only about 30 miles away, from my roof. The house was surrounded and guns drawn on me. You see, I live near enough to a major airport that the neighbors mistook it's green color and imposing size as some... more

Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras
After carefully reading all the reviews for this product and scoffing at the poor chap who wanted to use it as a laser, I sold my left kidney, my house, and my immortal soul to scrape up the money for this lens. Boy, am I glad I did.
Initially, I had no idea what I was going to do with this lens. I mean, I'm not a wedding photographer, nor a professional creep, but nothing says "I'm better than you" than living with my 30,000 dollar camera lens in my cardboard box. So, I decided to figure out what to do with my lens after I bought it. Luckily, Amazon figured out that people who bought this lens also bought the Giottos AA1900 Rocket Air Blaster Large - Black for a steal at $8.50, and I had an aha! moment. (Granted, when the Sigma lightbulb went off in my head I was blinded for 72 hours and had to wait to order my product, but it was well worth the wait!) I decided to hook my lens to the rocket... more
