  • As stated if in Spring I had in mind something then I would probably wait to Black Friday. It's just a hobby for me and I've lived without it anyway so it's not critical. Personally these days I ...
  • I came from a typical family that wasn't into photography. So we didn't really use cameras, unless it was someone's wedding etc. We didn't even use cameras over someone's birthday or Christmas. I ...
  • Leave them on my hard drive haha, show a few on Instagram that is about it really. I used to share some on Facebook but I found most of my friends are not that interested unless it is a super city ...
  • I think it depends. There are millionaires who don't get into photography. There are those who are into photography rich or poor. For me even if I won the lottery I wouldn't buy new. I just see ...
  • Somewhat related to the other thread which capped at 150 replies. I've been in this hobby game since 2004 and my perspective has changed. At the end of the day, do what you want and life carries ...
  • No I got into this hobby 20yrs ago. My last new camera was 2013 D600. My last second hand camera maybe 3yrs ago a 2014 Fuji XT1.
  • My SLR cameras and lenses for the last 20yrs does what I need. Lost interest in equipment fun. They're tools. So unless I need a dual body usage or a camera breaks I may not purchase anymore ...
  • I try to be more get the shot and less on equipment now and less use of tripod unless it's required. At home with car or a road trip. Full frame DSLR with 1 super wide zoom and 1 prime and 1 70-200 ...
  • Yes, I try different films out and developers. Per my hobby part of my finance portion I allocate which isn't much. I might allocate $70US a year or double that tops. Currently have the Arista 100 ...
  • For personal stills photography, dSLRs are still digital.  It works.  It might not be the latest though.  Like other things such as cars, I am just sick of spending money.  Stuff like cameras are ...
  • For myself that is general photography and travel / landscapes. 1x Fuji X 1x UWA zoom 2x primes. I might add a GFX camera with maybe 2 or 3 primes.  That's it.  Add a tripod and some filters ...
  • I think many photographers get into it because of what else they might be in.  I like travel so that is my main genre.  I cannot always afford to travel all the time including within my country so ...
  • I have been to JP a few times solo myself, using public transportation often 2 or 3 nights per city and moving on with the fantastic JR Rail pass. I have used dSLRs in the past and now just before ...
  • Laptop is being used so no line-in with the computer. It's sound desk / table --> camcorder --> USB HDMI Camlink 4k device (video and audio) --> OBS. When they get their own place that isn't ...
  • Yep those things. It's only for me so short durations are probably fine. With a speaker on the stage it can go for 1hr, the group uses a Panasonic camcorder with a line in / microphone in. You can ...
  • Created discussion thread Nikon Z vs dSLRs for video?
    I have that the Z cameras are better for video.  For those who have used video with dSLRs what is your view with it?  I would be just be using the memory card, half the time also they might be on ...
  • Depends on the type of tourist. As said one could get up for a sunrise and shoot but some countries can have extremely early sunrise like 4am that might not be suitable for all.  There is also ...
  • Replied in GAS
    I don't get GAS now, not just cameras but other items like my thought of my first 'automatic' wrist watch.  Even with a better brand dress belt. With cameras.  I did have GAS earlier on before ...
  • I'm more a colour person myself with travel and landscapes ie golden hour and blue hour.  I have asked why some shoot BW in the past.  One reply that got me was some saw it as escaping from the ...
  • Correct me but isn't the internal clock battery soldered iron to the circuit board and it is a capacitor? The pro bodies have a user replaceable clock battery though .... The clock ought to last ...
