Nikon PB-4 Bellows (exploring tilt/shift options)

Rockwell Nikon D200, 300 vs Cannon 5D

Flash stuck in hot shoe
I just purchased a Vivitar DF400MZ flash for my D50 and though it seems to work fine I can't seem to unscrew the tightening screw to get the flash off the camera. I am not totally sure which way the screw should move to undo it (I think clockwise looking from the top - should have paid more attention when I put ... 19 Aug 2007 12:31
