I like the idea of Niko giving me participation awards because my photography is generally so mundane. The mosquito thing is interesting but when I'm with others the mosquitos always seem to prefer their blood to mine.

Where do I get the capital to buy a Z9? If I sold all of my old Nikon stuff I might scrape together enough frog skins to buy a Z9 but then I'd have to make a pinhole lens cap as I would own no lenses.

Dave,

You are doing it wrong.

1) Run a Kickstarter campaign called "Obscura" for pinhole lens caps for Z9 - "Infinite focus", "exquisite boke", an homage and connection to Vermeer and other artists. precision cut from titanium, gold, rhodium, silicon bronze and the cheap initial option - oxygen free food grade aluminum.
2) With the deposits, buy a Z9 for testing.
3) Send out squares of aluminum foil, a needle and some black tape.

I really appreciate being around people with tasty blood. Years ago I remember my friend Harold swatting himself in the back of he head and wondered why? We were just a few hundred yards/meters from Mosquito Lake No. 5 in the Sierra Nevada range out of Mineral King Valley (where Micky Mouse died). Micky Mouse wanted to build a Ski Resort in this popular backpacking trail head.
