Hi. New F3 Owner Here

Is this an active Forum, the dates of the latests posts are from months ago? I'm hoping the dates are just messed up.

There are still a few of us old dinosaurs here. Do you have a question/comment/issue?

Great, signs of life! I bought the F3 but don't have it yet, but I'm going to have lots of questions.
Thanks a lot.

Re: Hi. New F3 Owner Here

I suspect much of what you might want to know has been discussed in this area already. Be sure to search around some before making a new post.

I still enjoy shooting with the F3.

Thanks, and I'm sure your right, but I can promise I will be asking questions about previously discussed topics. As old as most of these posts are there has to be some more recent opinions and products to talk about.

Re: Hi. New F3 Owner Here

May I make a shameless plug for my 4-hour training video?

Is Doug. Is good! (beats chest)

Seriously, if Doug's training videos didn't exist then the whole industry would be much poorer for it.

Re: Hi. New F3 Owner Here

I'd also suggest Doug's (Vortex) training video as a great jump start.

Yes, there are a number of us out here who still use and love the look of the F3 - and continue to make clients happy with the results. Last used it two days ago, plus three days the previous week, you get the idea...

Re: Hi. New F3 Owner Here

If for no other reason than it has a great picture profile starting point that is so good, it has been known to cause open sobbing by editors in the NLE room overcome by the saturated splendor. Not to mention all the other ins and outs of the camera operation it'd take you months to suss out by yourself.

Buy it now before the camera even arrives.

In fact, if it was any better it would come with its own drool tray.

Mine came with the tray, but the drool pads were next to worthless. ;}
