  • Nice image! I love dogs... and especially really big ones, I really dig that enigmatic (not stereotypically "cute pet photo") quality that you got with it, the B&W tones are really nice and the ...
  • Created photos In my Hood
    It's been pouring rain here for a few days in a row so when it stopped raining and the sun came out (it peaked through the clouds for a bit) I was so inspired to be outside that I had to go ...
  • Replied in Lenses
    The Sony looks to be a really nice camera and the specs are great... The larger format will provide theoretically better IQ. Still, I'm not as impressed with the offerings of Sony lenses as they ...
  • I agree. Though there might be some wisdom in suggesting that folks like what they're already family with, so that the characteristic "SLR" type hump is partly marketing, it also serves a ...
  • I often get frustrated with photography as I'm not able to go to the kind of place where I really want to be photographing and/or I lack the inspiration to photograph my regular surroundings ...
  • Strong composition... I really like this shot.
  • Replied in I was told...
    .... and again this is something that I was told, from a much more experienced photographer: that the cheaper, slower versions of the same lens, say a Nikon 50mm 1.8 as compared with the 1.4 ...
  • Hey there... I too have a GH2. I got mine maybe 9 or so months ago and have been really happy with it. You probably got a sweeter deal than I did on mine on account of the fact that this camera ...
  • I have the Panasonic f1.4 and I've been pretty happy with it... though admittedly, I haven't used it a lot. I do think that you're generally right though about lenses. It's my understanding that ...
  • Replied in Both..... Why?
    Why bother owning both of these lenses? Why own more than one of the very same focal length prime lens, especially since these two are considered to be pretty similar?
  • I really like the Sony RX100 series as I like the idea of a really tiny camera with great IQ and I think that these are really well designed too... with the controls being really well thought out. ...
  • Actually only a few of the cameras mentioned here are autofocus as autofocus with film was rather short lived until digital came along. Lots of the cameras mentioned are only manual exposure as ...
  • Replied in well maybe
    Here's the thing though: I'd say that film photography most certianly IS related to digital photography. There are all kinds of posts on DPR that relate to photography in a generized way and ...
  • Replied in Minolta X700
    Those are of course excellent camreas. Still, I never really wanted one. I like the idea of something that's does a similar job but sooooo much lighter and smaller. I guess that I'm the same with ...
  • Replied in Minolta X700
    I had one of those too and though it's a great camera, I ended up using my x570 more. The X700 does have a few more automated modes, but if you're like me and use manual and aperture priority then ...
  • Most of the responses here (maybe all of them) are from folks who prefer to shoot in RAW. We're merely saying that you're initial example isn't a very effective one in proving that RAW is superior ...
  • Replied in You're wrong...
    I can't really speak as well to the photography side of the equation as I don't claim to know as much about the education side of that. I do know that you're really speaking out of turn about ...
  • Replied in Why film?
    As someone who's had plenty of experience with analog photography and yet is more more into it than every with the newer digital tools, I still think that learning with film has a lot of merit. ...
  • I agree with all of that.... Those are nice cameras and I wouldn't bother with anything newer that has autofocus lenses. I really liked the Nikon FE I had as well as a camera not on your list, a ...
  • Replied in This is why...
    ... I'm really wanting to own something like a RX100 (preferably the RX1000 III) as I don't really like to use my phone (though sometimes, with the right subject, light, distance, etc, it does OK) ...
