Here's my meager collection. Little grainy cause the Light in our office sucks for pictures. The snow outside causes intense glares from the windows and the florescent lights suck. There are always too many of them or not enough for the shot.

That is one sick pose of Hikaru's VF-1J! Seriously though, are you not afraid to leave these out at work? It looks like they are out in the open and someone looking to make off with them could do so easily.

This is why I have to break down and cop the 1/48 Weathered Roy. I remember when these things were going for $600-$700! With the second run they're a little more reasonable. I still have to cop the 1/48 Kakizaki and the Macross Zero enemy fighters.

One day Vegas...one day...I shall catch up to you brother! Nice pics by the way.

It's within my sites, but you know I've always been on a personal mission to match your collection. I think when I first started collecting you had just started replacing what you had had in the past. Nothing serious, but just fun playing catch up. Believe it or not, I'll be looking for a cool DSLR camera once I am up to speed on my collection. Yamato aint making it easy though!

honestly and this goes out to all you guys........you dont need a dslr cam to get good pics.....you need to learn how to play with light.... thats it. but a good camera helps though.

unless you're specifically trying to play with depth of field, in good sunlight a nicer subcompact camera can take outstanding pictures.

the problem is, we don't even have a "nicer subcompact camera"... my wife was all set to get a basic DSLR kit before she decided to buy another 1k+ handbag! damn that :angry: ... ^_^ now it's been downgraded to a - what do you call that class of cameras just below DSLRs? and did i mention, i now have to share in the cost of buying it. :p

anyway, it would be a cool idea for you guys w/ some knowledge to open a Photography 101 reference thread, specifically for taking pics of toys/models etc.... B))

There's the big zoom compact camera... those are the p&s cameras with the big 10 or 12x optical zoom lenses attached. Then there's compacts, which are generally small enough for like a coat pocket and then the subcompacts which would fit comfortably in like a shirt or pant pocket.

All of the smaller cameras have small sensors and need lots of light though some of the very newest p&s cameras like the lumix lx3 have decent low light picture quality (grainy but decent iso 1600 shots for the lx3). Generally speaking, for a typical p&s camera, I would say that ISO 400 is about as high you would like to go before picture quality starts to suffer. 800 will give you noticeable grain and ISO 1000 and above being pretty awful. And in general, the higher the megapixel the poorer the camera will be in terms of low light conditions.

Another challenge with taking low light shots is that the camera will take a long exposure to compensate and since most people hand hold their cameras, these types of shots usually result in blurry pictures just because the shooter's hand is moving slightly. An easy tip is to use a tripod or stabilize the camera and use the timer function to take a jiggle free picture.

It's never been a problem and it never crossed my mind about somebody from work stealing it. Nobody in my office would do that. Maybe it's because I'm from Canada (eh!), I dunno. Anyway their probably safer at work tucked behind the security of the building. The only problem I have is the threats of the old fart tossing them off the side of the building to see if they really fly. :lol: He's a WWII plane junkie so we get along great. He has some really cool P47 Thunderbolt models.

Anyway did a slight variation of it I'll post tomorrow. Had to give the VF-1D back it's gun.

i think youre talking about the "super zoom" cameras. they have more manual settings than the P&S's

i basically learned from the internet, especially on youtube:

It's Friday and I'm bored so I post a pic.... :mellow: .....same thing just different angles.

Edit: Touched up the 2nd and last pic in photoshop a little bit. The flash and white VF-1J don't mix.

This is the only VF I have, a Yammie 1/60 2.0 Roy. I want to get a 1.72 Ozma or Alto but I don't have the time or micron pens and other supplies anymore. I do have a TON of Master Grades, they're all boxed in my closet though.

So far the VF-1D is the only 1/60 ver 2 that has sparked my interest enough to buy. I'm VF-1'd out after purchasing most of the 1/48 offerings. Can anyone tell me if the shoulder problem has been addressed on these more recent releases or are they prone to cracking like the first few. After playing with Bandai latest offerings I'm spolied. I'm swearing off any Yamato that isn't confirmed to not fall apart. No matter how appealing it looks

Hi everyone I did a photo shoot for my collection of Valkyries, might not look as good as professional but I'm quite happy with the results.

Comments are Welcomed.
