Re: Is It capture the memory, or Photographic excellence?

With respect to DPreview, I dont know how the rest of the world is evolving. For 60 years, the gear was very important. I'm not sure how or where the gear stands today.

Over my time here, the gear was a means to help achieve  the best results possible with my limited abilities. Ive manage to capture a lot of memories, which have become priceless over the years, I have 80,000 photos ( keepers ) of the hundreds of thousands Ive taken over about 60 years of photography. I'm  not really sure if any would be considered photographic excellence, but some are much better then others, but all the keepers, no matter their quality, are priceless to me. It would be very hard for me to deleate a single one of those 80,000.

Funny how I saw the rumblings of the demise of Sony, and kind of knew it would be coming . Being an A mount user since its inception, I stuck it out.. But the other day I went to the Canon site looking at gear.... At my age and health, it was just a " What if I bought " moment..... a means to rekindle the enthusiasm.  Starting over at 74 years ? Hardly a real consideration.  The thought came up ," Maybe I should have gone there 50 years ago.

Just conversation
