Scruntys NutPea Funch's recent activity

  • I'll give you defence, and astronautics, even though NASA hasn't had a new space vehicle in years. SpaceX is an interesting development in private space exploration. In almost everything else, it ...
  • Photography is like learning a musical instrument in some respects. When we start, we cannot hear the musician's own voice because they are practising scales and making mistakes. Gradually, as they ...
  • No. I'd say America had a run of about 140 good years of pure innovation (from the 'American system of manufacturing' in the mid 19th century to the development of CODIS at the start of the ...
  • I think the answer really does come down to the service provided by the local distributor. Look at the disproportionate number of UK Fuji users here, because Fuji UK provides an excellent overall ...
  • Good for you. Seriously. I make money out of film images and out of digital images I take. I'm happy with either. Personally, I find the costs involved in film are too high, because if you work ...
  • It depends on your shooting style, but I don't think I could work to 1-3 rolls a month. I'm not another Garry Winogrand, who went through film faster than most of us could type, but I'd find that ...
  • Not just colour. The costs rack up fairly quickly. Processing costs are negligible, yes, but they are a fraction of total cost of film. Currently, putting a roll of B&W film through a camera works ...
  • Bear in mind that people on a gearhead camera forum aren't that interested in a digital camera made in the dark ages of 2013. They aren't going to react favourably to a technology they feel has ...
  • Yes, but a manufacturer creating its own shop is simply entering the market. The fact that the prices it sets are effectively the current MRSP establishes an de facto upper limit for retail ...
  • Not necessarily. The Fuji 18-135 deal currently in progress in the UK means wherever you buy the X-T1, Fuji sends you a voucher for £250 off the lens that can only be redeemed at one retailer. The ...
  • It just occurred to me, these stores allow a manufacturer to create a MRSP that allows for some degree of price protection for B&M retailers, without being in restraint of free trade. This, of ...
  • That is a big part of the problem. Unless there is some kind of means whereby the retailer benefits from the purchase, selling the product becomes difficult to justify. Unfortunately, the ...
  • High school, no. There is still a demand for chemical photographic processes, albeit not a large demand. If you live in a town large enough to have its own arty community, you'll find someone with ...
  • The one that came with the X-T1 is incompatible, because it has no way of taking power from the hot-shoe of any other camera. You need to use either a Fuji EF-20, EF-X20, an EF-42, or wait for the ...
  • Not any more. Those high schools that teach basic photography don't bother with chemical photography now, except as a historic element. This is completely understandable; anyone in high school ...
  • Replied in Travel Kit?
    First, I'd suggest just trying out the EVF of the Fuji X-T1, as it's arguably the best viewfinder of the current mirrorless crop. They have improved considerably over the years, but if it still ...
  • I'd love to say something positive here, but it's not that likely. When the time came to sell my Leitz Focomat, I couldn't even give it away. You see them on eBay, but you see the same ones on ...
  • Yes, it is. But yours is at the end of the decision making process. If you are buying a Nikon, then buying it from Nikon would make sense. As it would if you had decided on another brand and were ...
  • Replied in IBIS ?
    Fuji UK's X Mount lens page ( http://www.fujifilm.eu/uk/products/digital-cameras/fujinon-x-mount-lenses/ ) lists the 16-50 f/2.8 as 'OIS WR' and claims it - and the 50-140 f/2.8 OIS WR will be ...
  • Replied in Yes!
    The problem is the internet is a very big place, and individual camera companies are not. Without the store experience, no-one gets to try before they buy, and people tend to buy safe and cheap. Or ...
