  • Earlier on when I started I had GAS.  Like 2004-2009.  I used to print all the brochures and read camera and lens reviews and which f-stop was the best.  Fortunately I didn't buy anything other ...
  • I myself would put more care in defining what is a hobbyist. At a camera club I have known real hobbyists but outside of that like on social media those I know personally, the few that had a dSLR...

  • Germans not gonna buy it? Hmmm

  • IMO not for everyone but a niche. I like it for the higher quality but if I just wanted to share something quick I could just use my phone. To me if I am not doing anything really photographic but ...
  • After getting fed up with 3 cameras I took with a family trip overseas in scorching 95F weather or 35 degrees celsius weather and they encouraged me to take more gear than I usually did.  After a ...
  • People were saying with the Nikon Rumours report of the images they didn't see any Nikon Z. Well I guess most sport shooters would be using sport cameras like the D5 and D6 and Nikon Z or even ...
  • Video here DIY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOHHaLq6SOE I bought a pre-owned GR1 APS-C sensor size one.  It does have 1 dust spot but it has never bothered me.  Also when you are likely using ...
  • There was a couple of profiles right like a quite popular Provia one I recall an image here on DPreview showing a photograph with NYC Police Officer.  They were loaded with the Nikon software I ...
  • Given that the current Hasselblad cameras are the 907x and the X1D and the newer one Mark II or something?  Then it's the Hasselblad H6D.  The H6D is a 645 format.  The 907x and the X1D's uses XCD ...
  • I agree with others who ask what is it that you want validation from others? Which is perfectly understandable. Some get into their own hobbies which their own peers don't take an interest and that ...
  • Not sure for me. A lot of variables. Of course if one compares a entry lens to a pro lens the lens has a lot merit. Again if you shoot in low light handheld the higher ISO can have merits also ...
  • I wonder how much years into the future would digital backs still be produced for the Hasselblad 500 series mount.  It looks like much of the digital backs are now the Hasselblad H series and ...
  • Just came back from the city waterfront among market food and children family etc. It's school holidays here. I still have my Nikon D600 and interestingly the D610 is still a current model despite ...
  • Have any of you who do photography in a certain way and you stick to that? I have some prime lenses but I have not used them much. I am primarily a cityscape landscape shooter but I do try to shoot ...
  • You have listed great options and they have all been / are successful for many people.  For me I don't need a zoom so I went with a pre-owned Ricoh  GR first version APS-C.  Since I normally just ...
  • I think overall.  Newer tech is going to trump everything. Those can sit here and debate and debate.  When dSLR gets funding neglected and shifts to mirrorless.  That is where the customer demand ...
  • Created poll thread Do you like grain / noise?
    Just curious. Do you like digital grain / noise? I have been reminded that not too long ago there was film and digital have improved over the years. I read locally someone who was a commercial pro ...
  • For most things I could live with just mirrorless.  I only have a used Fuji X-T1.  Re: the X-T1 it is that the LCD can flicker at times but I think this is greatly improved with the newer ones esp ...
  • Thanks all.  I see no difference at all really at the end of the day.  I have compared the diff rates but I found that 1/50 worked better inside with screens involved like a projector screen.  ...
  • That was a point that stuck out for me. Over time for me with photo clubs and stuff and the people you get to know over the years. People by in large stick to what they are passionate or ...
