Nina, I understand your point and I've been looking at a package. But the point is I need a body, a good lens and a flash. But only as a semi-professional, not aiming for anything artistic. I need good pictures for printed press while I do some freelance writing for newsprint.

hello there,Are you only buy the camera house or will you also want to buy a good lens and flash?

I'm planning to buy a new digital systems camera. Nina and Kaj, what would you suggest? Where should I go shopping for? The brands available for semi-professionals are Canon, Sony, Nikon, Olympus. My budget for the basic package would be around 1 000 euros but I might stretch it to 1 500 and I will make the decision in January 2010.

I am interested about the safe storage of B&W negatives.

The oldest ones are over 40 years old, and I keep them in dark, in room temperature. And there are a lot of them.

Some of them are most important for me, especially the one which describes a small island in a morning fog (it was est. 4 o'clock am, like the title of Simon & Garfunkel's old record from 60's).

I wonder if I should transfer them in a digitalized form? Maybe someone would be interested in them in the future? The real value of them may be zero or high, depending the observer of the photos?

Helge and me have discussed about everyday photography.

Why do we not document our homes with our cameras when we still live in them? Modern people tend to move several times during their lifetime (I have moved 17 times, as far as I can remember). Last homes in Sweden and Jyväskylä are better documented than the previous ones. It was a luck, however, that my father was an eager photographer in his early years, until 60's, but after that here is a huge gap in my memories of my homes. I focused to take photos (since 60's, B&W and dias) out in the nature, in forests and by the lakes. After that, I was keen to document plants and thereafter microbes - but not my homes.

What kind of furniture did I have in my homes? What were the colours of the textiles? What were the forms of windows, doors...?

Maybe we still have an idea about the high costs of photography somewhere in the back of our heads? Somebody asked me on 70's: "Why do you take photos without any persons?". It was obviously "allowed" to take expensive photos of one's relatives, but plants and landscapes...nonsense...

Let's document our homes as long as we still live in them! It is even cheaper today with our digitals!

Nina, about the video-film, I didn't have it with me to Sotkamo but should be able to make the transfer in the coming days. We've been busy with customer visits after we returned. But soon, it will happen. Have a great new year 2009.

Hello Juha, sorry that I have commented about micro/macrophotography before. I don´t have so much experience in this field, that I can give you any good advice.

Last winter I spend few weeks in Kenya where I did som art work from close-ups...

Hej Helge, vad tror du om energy change filmen, kan ni publicera den här? enjoy!

Thank you for your comments, Helge!

I have written absolutely nothing into my industrymicrobiology blog since November. The need for primary guidebook / Internet site about mb/microscopy/photography would be interesting to evaluate? Maybe some chances to publish this kind of primary textbook - with photos - can be found?

Nina, be free to visit my blogs www.industrymicrobiologist.blogspot.com and travellingwitheyes.blogspot.com. Both of them contain also photos - previous of them professional, later free-time ones.

Juha and Nina,

Thanks for an excellent idea and posting. Your thoughtful idea should give Nina and her students a lot to think about. A book project could lead to a long term collaborative effort involving microbiologisists and photographers.

My next thought is, could such a project get financing? I know that Nina has been doing "Waters" which is close to hearth to micro- and biotechnologists, limnologists and environmentalists.

Maybe Nina has ideas? How about Kulturfonden? This would be a deep thing. Finnish Academy might be a source of money too. Kulttuurirahasto is one in addition to Tekes, maybe Sitra.

You're an excellent writer Juha and you have a lot of talented people around you. It could be a book in English language. Or should this book be created on Internet?

These are my humble ideas about a very fine idea.
