Some years ago I bought my first digital camera, a Leica Digilux 4.3 point-and-shoot. One of the first things I wanted to try was closeups, but I found this little Fuji-built camera lacked features I wanted for such work: a place to attach my ancient ring-flash, a way to synchronize this device to the camera and a cable release. I built a gadget to solve these three problems - read about this project (PDF file) at:

When I saw the photo, I thought "hey, that looks a lot like my old-now-permanently-archived Fuji 4700. And it is!
Interesting project (and some beautiful Leicas!)
