Hmmmmm......quite good, at least in these samples. Although it seems to translate signs into a language I can't understand......

Ah. A comrade! Some vaguely remember the days before GPS. I also remember using a LORAN!Yup - LORAN-A, LORAN-C, Omega and the mercifully defunct Navy Navigational Satellite System (NNSS). NNSS posited us consistently about 50 miles inland all along the northwest coast of Borneo. Before this thread I hadn't thought about those days for years.
I may just pull the trigger on the 14 f/2.8 Samyang post Xmas. In fact, I think I'll rent it first.
OK, this is not an accessory but for me "Release Shutter Without Card" is a useless feature, which I never use but can get into trouble real easy ...Film days, 1975 - I had my beloved Nikon F2 (cost me 1.5 months pay) and was hiking on the south end of Guam. A trail runs along the crest of the hills providing great views of two postcard perfect bays, a lake in the interior and in general just gorgeous scenery while the ceaseless tradewinds temper the heat and humidity. I followed a trail that went across to the east side of the island, met a group of boys enjoying the day at a shallow stream with a couple of carabao. Rode with them through a bamboo forest until we reached the outskirts of the village where they lived. Realizing I had miles to go to return to my car still on the east side, I resigned myself to a very long trek back. About that time a pair of Navy Seabees tooling around the boonies in a jeep came by and gave me a lift around the south end of the island back towards where my car was. We stopped at the ruins of an old Spanish fort overlooking Umatac Bay around sunset, all of us happily snapping away. 'twas just about then I discovered my film had slipped off the takeup spool, not a single shot exposed.........
