Yeah, I was wondering what the alternative to a digital camera would be these days...

Ok here is a picture I took with my calculator. It can also make phone calls and brows the web and for some reason people keep calling it an "iPhone".

The "focus ring" may not function as a focus ring on your lens. It could be for adjusting aperture or something else. Depends on the lens model. Easiest way to find out what it does is to check out the manual for the lens itself.

Also, the Sony NEX-C3 isn't a DSLR.

Yep, only one photo per person. Jesse, just edit your post above so that it includes your top choice, and that's what I'll use for voting.

Well, I know the buy in has closed, but if another 40 or so were interested along with me-- I'd be interested in buying one also. How do we upload pic for potential entry? I don't have a pretty enough outside right now, but I'm rather proud of the immaculate engine bay and clean mods / intensive attention to detail on factory look etc...

This is the sort of thing I'm talking about. Not this picture exactly-- I shot this for a purpose in showing component location for someone. My idea was just a "clean" looking S50 Avus engine bay, with several mods, that look otherwise factory. (sans the blue shop rag under the ccv hose of course)

Mods: Euro headlights, alum tstat housing drilled / tapped with sender, elec fan, wiring headlight range control retrofit, 3.5 MAF,3.5 aFe pro5 intake, BBTB...

Of course, if I'm just biased, I understand completely

Karl is there any way to start a waiting, or 25 to 50 list? It couldn't hurt to see if we can get into the higher bracket.

When it's time to pay, the first 25 with have priority unless a second order 25 is fully allocated.

If we're stuck in the mid 40s I'd be willing to buy a second for the office.

You're welcome to submit any photo of your car that you want, but it will have to be voted on like everyone else's photo.

Calendar purchasing is capped at 25, and has been filled until further notice. I can put you on a wait-list if you'd like.

Photo submission is outlined on page 1. If you do not intend the photo you posted in this thread to be submitted for voting, please remove it. The only photos to be posted in this thread are the ones which are to be used for voting, and you only get one photo per person.

I'll see if I can work something out, but I can't promise anything. I think it will be next to impossible to get up to 50 committed buyers. I'll create a wait-list in case currently committed buyers back out.

You know what we should have done?

Make the photo for each month correspond with each season that month is.

Like have a snowy e36 in December and a bright sunny e36 in June.

I agree, but honestly, the photo submission deadline is seriously looming and hardly anyone has submitted their photo. Getting specific with photo content requirements would make matters even more difficult.
