Re: gearheads

Raist3D and David.

I think you both make the same mistake. You think gearhead has to be someone interested in a certain brand. But - as far as I know - a gearhead is someone interested in technology.

I would say that some panorama shooters are typical gearheads. Using large format cameras, where none really is needed, is also a gearhead.

Wanting a shift and tilt lens to make panoramas also is a gearhead.

Making photo sensor traps for photographing bats also is a gearhead.

And building a platform on your car is also a gearhead.

Its someone that likes technological solutions.

BTW - even the zone system is s typically technological solution to the problem of exposing and developing and printing right.

I might be wrong. English is not my native language. But ... this is what I believe.
