I would like Canon 5d II or a Nikon D700. Did I say I would like a Nikon?

You guys are so easily satisfied....I want one (or more!) of these babies!

http://www.blackmonauctions.com/?Auction=21

*edit* OK, while I'm dreaming why don't I just way I want ALL of the tunnel motors from that auction. Paint them all in their original schemes, plus get about 150-200 surplus freight cars for them to haul. Move them all to the dormant Tennessee Pass line in Colorado and operate photo freights on it and maybe some local operations. It would be like a time-machine to the mid-90's! Help pay the bills by charging big bucks to let railfans have a turn operating the locomotives under supervision and allowing UP and BNSF to operate trackage rights trains. Or maybe I'm just delusional because I accidently took a hydrocordone rather than a pennicillin this morning. But I'd give anything for the chance to get photographs like these:

Good fun Dennis,

Just Stick with what you've got.

Remember it's the way you point it that counts!

Designed to handle the more difficult assignments, the KS-6 provides almost twice the stabilization of the KS-4. Steady sequences with smooth panning from helicopters, boats or any moving vehicle is now a possibility. Troublesome vibrations are dampened out for medium format cameras or long lenses, without the loss of hand-held freedom of motion. The KS-6 is easily attached to camcorders, videotape television cameras, etc. to realize the full potential of telephoto and zoom lenses. One or two KS-6 gyros are often used for in steadicam systems. The KS-6 is recommended for equipment as heavy as 6 lbs. Specifications: Size: 3.4" diameter x 5.8" long Weight: 3.25 lbs (52 oz.) Power: 115 volts, 400 Hz, 26 watts starting with 11 watts running after 4 minutes. 3 hours running on a fully charged KP-6 Power pack. Panning Rate: 20 degrees per second

This blurb mentions Steadicam use. (Note capitalization) I worked with one of the first guys to use this on their Steadicam rigs. As I recall these gyros, were heavy. I think they used two, don't remember now. Bad Steadicam operating manifest's itself with unlevel frames and hopping up and down. With these gyros and the operator's skill, the dance sequences they did looked phenomenal. The gyros were worth the extra work and weight and noise. They take a while to get up to speed and to stop, BTW.

I have had a change of heart. I don't need no stinkin' fancy-pants digital camera.
I'm gonna use my Argus C-3 "Brick" instead.
