You folks have a lot of time on your hands.

Mark Turney: I don't really get this continual need to simulate something old. If you want that look and feel, shoot with film (negative or slide). Please .... let's move forward with making THIS digital "medium" as good as it can be.

Humans will always have a tremendous desire to connect with the which came before.

True in all areas of life.

Do these work well with LR or a waste of time/desk space?

CameraLabTester: Who would shoot my portrait?

My barber.

He knows my good portrait angles in 360 and 3D.

Leonard Nimoy would snap the camera, but my barber would direct him.

.

Nimoy would require quite the connection.

Red - the color of my bank account (should I buy this lens).

Have to admit it is pretty snazzy looking.

vscd: The BEST way to prevent blown out high lights would be a RAW-based histogram. Better than any fancy algorithms... but not seen on recent cams except of some mediumformat ones >15000$ :(

Bingo.

How about this: a little indicator light that blinks when the raw stands to clip. That would save me from having to spend time carefully assessing the histogram.

I certainly manage (don't want to come off as a whiner) as is but my guess is that the tech is there so why not include it?

Keith57: Strange language. What's a crop sensor? Is it a sensor that stated out a certain size and then gets chopped down? What's on earth is 'full frame'? Is it a mythical standard size? What about all those cameras with a really big sensor (Medium format) are they 'expanded sensors'?

Just curious, what's wrong with just 35mm, m4/3, etc? aren't all of these 'Full Frame' ;-)

@cosinaphile

Full time full frame baby. With that and my 500mm lens the girls call me "Killer".

(Shush and I'll tell you a secret - I do take out my RX100 on occasion but only when I think I won't be seen).

Language does not work the way you think it should.

"Crop sensor" and "full frame" have been around for a very long time and are readily understood by experienced photographers.

They relate directly to the history of digital imaging.

By way of example - the "brakes" on a car. The word historically refers to the long handle that was once used to slow a cart.

Despite that we are all happy to use the term even when "rotor grabby thing" might be more accurate.

How interesting.

I have shot the Mark I from its release in the summer of 2012. What a great little camera.

The V's autofocus speed will make this a delightful street machine.

RicD: Please I beg you stop with the "utilize", it sounds pompous and it is unnecessary. Utilize is a medical term about how our bodies takes on medicine. Outside of that the correct word is, use. Sorry I must have missed the memo that states, rather than utilized use we will utilize utilize. Ugh!

Perhaps English is not your first language but the fact of the matter is that utilize is not a medical term.

You're welcome -

@Becksvart

Your contributions to this thread actually involve projection, erroneus inferences, and logical fallicies.

THAT'S how these threads get screwy.

cgarrard: For any who criticize....

Remember that just being there, is one of the biggest hurdles for photographers. Getting off the bum - if you will. It's easy to forget how much work goes into just getting your camera in the right spot, let alone getting your timing and exposure and composition right. While some compositional elements could be nitpicked here, we are talking about a 16yr old with limited experience pulling of what most readers here wish they would get themselves off the couch to do. Perspective indeed. ;)

@Peacekeeper

Not a particularly gracious post....

I live along the sea here in New York and I am no more than a half-hour outside NYC yet the vast majority of teens locally will not take advantage of that fact in the context of photography.

Is it appropriate to diminish the works of the folks that do take advantage of our opportunities (teens or not) by pointing out that we live in outside one of the most interesting cities in the world?

A little churlish; no?
