About me:

I have been fortunate and financially able to retire early. Now being a few years older, I just take life one day at a time and with no worries. Admittedly, I'm just a happy vacation and family snapshooter with no photographic skills at all, and I really don't care. I have no ego.
I'm not one of those self-centered, miserable, lacking in any social skills, socially isolated chaps lurking the forums spewing rude and inappropriate comments on others. You know who they are. But I really appreciate all the helpful people here who offer positive comments and suggestions.
I'm here to learn more about photography. And to appreciate images taken by others. Photography is just a hobby for me, and my life is not centered around it. That's it.

I think it will be a great camera for taking selfies. :)

Out of curiosity how many of you "serious" photographers take selfies?

Because some reviewers or pros get loaned samples before the actual release date to your ,pubic , and. Then have to return the product back.

OP was fortunate to only have a few nicks and bruises, and lost only his camera and not his life.

Years ago, I witnessed a photographer with a large format camera on tripod in Yosemite National Park, California, who was standing on a rock in the river, with his head under the dark cloth. He lost his footing on the wet rock, slipped , and was swept down river in the rapids. Camera and all. He drowned. Unfortunate accident.
Sh*t happens.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2300 comments in total)

Seriously? Just expensive bling. Those nutty Germans. :)

Fuji XE-2 is for real photographers.

The T is for wannabes who are Red Dot fanboys. The gold neck chain crowd.

In reply to:

novak977: amazing how A7 is ignored while being MUCH better value being FF for just a bit more money.
for example EVF is a bit smaller but it is not even shown here along with other cameras.
This is nice but APS-C camera, with lot of useful features but nothing really exciting, nothing that can give you FF experience on budget.

That A7 shutter is as loud as my farts. Can you image a street or wedding photographer using A7?

In reply to:

Jogger: Fuji is rumoured to be following Sony and releasing both a fixed lens FF camera (RX1/R competitor) and an FF ILC and lenses based on their existing mount. It will be interesting if they are able to extrans those sensors.

It's just B.S.

In reply to:

marike6: This kind of Fujifilm X100s infatuation has been finding its way into a few DPR articles of late, most notably the Nikon Df Preview and the whole "Retro Done Silly" fiasco.

I've enjoyed using both the X100 and X-E1 but I don't know too many photographers who would purposely choose an X100 over a proper FF DSLR, retro or not, for any other reason than convenience.

Why do photogs get hung up on the FF thing?

In reply to:

John Pennington: I may be wrong, but I thought the S still has the aperture dance problem of the original X100, which makes usage somewhat of a a pain.

What is the aperture dance?
