fromo1946: Why does the 4th generation have less MP’s than the 3rd gen, from 61MP to the 30MP is considerable?

Thanks for the clarification, I have a tendency of skimming over an article before getting into it. Your explanation made perfect sense, thanks again…

On my first day in this advertising company, I was mixing chemicals and reached over for the stop bath, acidic acid. I dropped the bottle, well that cleared out the building. The fire department showed up, I asked to use the self contained breathing apparatus and cleaned up my mess. What a way to start off in my new job…

Bigsensorisbest: Nothing wrong with this article, but I wonder what percentage of readers already know all of this! I’m 54 and grew up with film, is the readership here really that young?

Not only shooting with film, let’s take it into the darkroom, that’s where the magic takes place…I could spend 8hrs easily processing my film, viewing the negs, setting up for printing. That was the finishing touches on any shoot. Now, you shoot, bang, view and it’s off to another subject, I’m 75 had my experience since I was 14, then high school yearbook photographer, after school and weekends working in a commercial studio. Joined the USAF, became a photographer, later a Combat Photographer. Now, I just shoot digital, and whatever catches my eye, at my pace.

I worked in a portrait studio, 1964, processed sheet film by hand, I could run 12-15 8x10’s prints in the soup, great times. I miss the long hours of darkroom time, that was tranquility...now, bam! Here’s your shots on your computer, select, delete, ready to go. The younger generation, should delve into the art of darkroom work, it’ll give them an appreciation of the exposure...

fromo1946: Weddings are a nightmare, I shot weddings in the 70’s and later video in the 80’s. I gave it up, too stressful and time consuming...I was previously a Combat Photographer during the Vietnam war, for the USAF. Would do that in a heartbeat before shooting another wedding!

I was with 7th USAF 600 Photo Det. 16, Phu Cat, in the MAC II Region 69-71, “they were the best of times, they were the worst of times...” made and lost some great friends there.

Hello, my name is Frank, and I'm a GASaholic...I really, think this thread has hit way too close to home. I just haven't been able to get the strength to sell some of my gear. I know what I have to do and every time I look at my gear to shoot and place on ebay, I have withdrawals. Hopefully, I can come back and gather the will to post my gear to sell.
Thanks,
