Thumbs up, I like it ;-)
one could be converted to this camera if they managed to cramp in an EFV like on the NEX7 or XE1 for under $1000 bucks it would cut of a big slice of this competitors
Happy New Year to all and don't worry to much about the results. I voted for the D800 and the OMD was right next to it but would I buy the OM-D no I rather go for the next generation Fuji X cameras. The D800 yes but I'm to lazy to carry around the bulk and weight.To many really good cameras out there and it is what suits the individual which makes them buy one or the other camera. Only when you feel comfortable with your choice of camera you will go out and take the shots you be happy with.
even so I say D800 on the whole, I think it needs to be separated into mirrorless, DSLR, fixed lens P/S & superzoom, mobile phone (possibly).The X E1 is missing as well in the listin this term D800, XE1, RX100, FZ200, Nokia 808
Jim Evidon: Re.: Who is a professional?
A few years ago, one of my images was on display, having garnered high honors in our local camera club competition. I got a call from some woman who loved it and wondered if it was for sale. I quoted an insane price of $250 because I didn't want to be bothered. She said it was a deal.I was so surprised, I told her that rather than give her that print, I would custom print one for her on exhibition paper. It is the only print I ever sold since most of my work I do for myself and my own satisfaction and/or club(s) competition. I don't recall if I took it with my Leica or Nikon.
A professional is anybody who's work product is for sale. So, I guess I qualify...sort of. Chuckle.
I qualify as well lol I sold once a print for 250.- bucks and that was shot with a Oly Muj 300 hehe now I'm a professional :-)If they want to get professionals to buy their products they better try to lower their price, right now the market is full with damn good compact cameras and for a 3000 bucks you in with a D800
the KATA and Gorilla pod a must for any DSLR user who like to travel safe and light.
For sure all good cameras one can recommend but very buyest. How come they call it compact class and include a super zoom? nothing compact there.New real compact have hit the market and should be included but of cause dep. runs behind or even ignore them in some cases. Well the individual choice is what makes the world go around. I would have rather called it "best choice travel camera" and said the reason why they nominated these cameras. Include a sorts of cameras from super compact-advanced compact-super zoom-micro third-DSLROne thing is sure it is far to hard to narrow it down nowadays as to many good cameras out there which suits everyone's style
maybe its just a camera to be use in B&W while having a drink in a yupi bar. These shots are so flat and boring as it can be done with many other high end P&S cameras. If you look at the new Fuji X P1 or X E1 and still the X100 they all better for less or equal value. The market is full with cameras who can offer such IQ for less than halve what the Leica costs. Is that L symbol realy that much worth?
looks Ann and Gary are closest but all seem to be n the same thought, me 2
first you must like it and if other join in you know you got it right, if not you still can enjoy what maybe a weird shot but who cares as long as it makes you happy. Many famous painter painted a style others would not have paid a dime for it and now they are worth a fortune.Creativity has no rules but rules can be used to find more creativity
think the same upside down drop
Joe Ogiba: If you want bleeding edge camera technology forget Nikon or Canon, look for it from Sony or Panasonic.
Sometimes to much is not good and here we have this case. Fuji showed the way with the quick menu and a appealing retro design.Sony came out with a FF camera with a bit modern design. This camera looks like a Cannon G 12 with a more button to get tangled up. The manual zoom is a must for me and many advanced photographers. Keep trying Nikon :-) and don't forget the price has to be right as well.
ronandroscoe: I think chasing frightened animals from airplanes and helicopters sucks.
you think to much, just forget about other creatures feeling like they did in the early days when they gave big praise to the great white hunter when they hung up their trophy on the wall.But good suggestion to may use a balloon next time but they may don;t run in total fear ;-)
ops minor detail :-) sorry thanks anyway
thanks for your kind comment :-)
sorry forgot to re-adjust when adding frame line now its 900
Hope Fuji can handle all that praise after the last few month of getting slapped for some or another reason :-)Well done FujiI'm ven more proud t own a X100 ;-)
Thank you for the kindness for all your votes, it is very encouraging.Cheers,Siggi
well explained and good you mentioned at the end to challenge this rules only than we will develop our own signature (as long as it appeals).Thanks for the reminder of this basic but important compositional rules.
