Black Box: A pro DSLR - 1.5 kg. "А small family of lenses" - 5 more kg (if you're lucky!). A 17" Macbook Pro (what a show off!) - yet another 3-4. Tripod - 3 more? Plus flashes, cards AND the backpack itself at the healthy 2 kilos.
I guess I'm still too young to understand the people who "go create" loaded like a marine in a combat zone. No thanks.
No mention of power to recharge batteries & laptop or cell service/wifi to upload images to the internet. A day away from that and then what?
SeeRoy: Just what we need: another photo backpack - up to now the meagre range of choices available are so limited! I'm surprised that they haven't incorporated a helium bladder/blimp to offset the wearying effect caused by staggering around with a couple of pro bodies, half a dozen fast lenses covering 10-500mm, a powerful laptop, lotsa batteries, tripod, hunting rifle, emergency food, drink & equipment. Stuff you need on holiday."StreetWalker HardDrive". Priceless.
A throwback to another era. Reminds me of the 90's when Lowe Pro big backpacks allowed me to carry it all. But in reality I only needed a hip pack with another lens & film for a few hours hike away from car or cabin.
Jun2: Everything will be online. Newspaper will soon be history. Doesn't really matter if it has pictures or not.
Yeah, film, lp records, cd's are still around too.
Impressive, though not enough for me to upgrade from E-M5 as I'm just getting use to E-M5's specifics and idiosyncrasies and would have to learn another camera's ones all over again.
Great for artistic purposes, but I wouldn't want to eat any of it looking like that in an ad.
"It will mean great exposure for you."
You're asking me, so I already have exposure.
bentheoandrews: Wha... bu... um.... I don't get it.
This doesn't seem any smaller than my A33. The OMD, GX1 & GF3 are noticeably smaller than it. Unless the lens to sensor distance is reduced, making it mirrorless hits size limit of body and lenses.
richardplondon: The only reason anyone could object to something like this, so far as I can see, is if the lens is then sold without revealing that it has been rebuilt. It is relatively easy to establish whether a lens is working properly or not, and if it is working properly, this is a commendable rescue IMO.
Being practical minded means doing whatever works, not just whatever people's preconceptions are comfortable with.
As for these internal parts of the lens being subject to corrosion in the future - they already were vulnerable to corrosion in the first place. Metal is metal. That is why it is such bad news to drop your lens into seawater (grin).
Yes, will probably have issues in the future. I've heard this before from repair places - "If you dunk it, junk it."
System addict? Really? addict? Wouldn't "System choice..." be better or just "System..." suffice?
Very informative and concise. Instead of ads at the top right, why not have a beginners section/square with this and the Digital SLR Guide as a permanent links (which update periodically), like there is for Connect and Finished Challenges.
Lens news, Camera News, Preview - all for the same thing.Uh, couldn't you just put this all under "Lens Preview"?
