I'd suggest putting your "ad" in the Clan Recruitment forum ... it will remain higher up in visibility longer and is the normal place for such threads.

You may also want to change your font color ... the light blue is difficult to read.  Cheers and good luck with your clan.

LBA is a photographers' abbreviation for "Lens Buying Addiction", a disease very similar to PSBA (Premium Ship Buying Addiction) in World of Warships. It stems from the belief that a new  hunk of glass in front of your camera will somehow make you a better photographer. I'm sure the parallels are obvious. It's a subset of GAS ("Gear Acquisition Syndrome"), which more or less covers off both photography and WOWS.

I saw this and I thought "I don't need to be recruited for LBA; I have it already." :Smile_teethhappy: 

My only excuse is that I shoot film cameras from an era where zooms were few and far between (and not all that crash-hot), so you actually NEEDED a whole bunch of lenses for various applications. Here it's different - a fairly broad range of ships IS beneficial, but the tech tree supplies most of the variety that most people need and no spending is absolutely required.

(Photogs have it lucky - if you hate the lens you bought, you can at least sell it off. Ships, not so much.)

Wow, I thought I was going blind. Light grey on white is a bit hard to read!

I still wish I had my OM2s, worked with/without battery. This new Nikon absolutely runs it down and dies in @ 1-2 hours of normal use.

My LBA was cured by no money, or not enough. Nikon f4 400 to 600mm zoom $7,200 in 1982 dollars.

My premium fleet cost much less and I don't have to dust them

This new Nikon

Which Nikon is this?

The film camera closest to me right now is my Pentax S1a (sold in the US as the Honeywell Pentax H1a). It needs no batteries because it's so old that cameras didn't even have inbuilt light meters back then. My favourite is the MX, the shutter of which is also mechanically driven. Isn't the OM2 the one that metered off the film plane? Hunt up E-bay; you might be able to find yourself one and relive the good old days.

The digital camera closest to me right now is my Pentax K5, which on at least one occasion has run through a 7-day family holiday with no more than one battery change.

That's a lot of Frieslands in the Premium Shop! :Smile_teethhappy: But if you want to take a picture of a ballerina's nose hairs from the back of the concert hall, you gotta have the best!

D5600. I picked up 4 spare batteries and have learned to keep them charged and ready! I might go find another OM1/2s, it was also a LOT smaller.

I was into wildlife, needed lower light ability. More the nostril of a cottonmouth without getting too intimate than a ballerina  though both are dangerous. 

My F3 had a mechanical back up shutter that was only 1/60 sec and you had to figure your own exposure if the batteries failed.

Nice that there are still some new clans forming. I figured most players that want to be in one would already be in one by now.
