Galen Rowell had an untimely death due to a light aircraft accident. I have several of his books and not only are they filled with memoral photos, but also very comprehensive discriptions on his techbiques with flash, especially fill flash. Thom Hogan was a student of Galens and described how he switched from Minolta to Nikon after joining one of Galen's safaris, not that there is anything wrong with Minolta. Even if I were 50 years older, I don't think I would enjoy Galen's habit of taking photos while hanging to a vertical mountain wall, but I like his photos while doing so. Here is a link describing what could be found in his camera bag, with a strong emphasis on Nikon. http://www.mountainlight.com/rowell/gr_camera_bag.html Speaking of Thom Hogan, if you visit his site, he has an interesting article on what he would choose if limited to one camera for the rest of his life.
