  • +1 LOL! I really have to try this out! I'm going to have to start bugging our friends! And figuring out where I'm going to get the film and get it developed! Take care & Happy Shooting! :)
  • +1 That happens a lot for me when shooting cheer. I angle the camera towards where the athletes are on stage. I am pretty good at holding the camera level. But the back of the stage will be at ...
  • +1 Yeah. That K-1 looks like an awesome camera. How are you finding it? I know I would have a lot of fun with it. But I got a daughter going to college next year, so all extracurricular spending ...
  • I might try to shoot a TLR this summer. Friends of ours has an old Yashica TLR. I don't know if it works, but I think I can convince them to let me try. If I get it to work, I'll have to take my ...
  • +1 My dad taught me about photography on his Pentax SLR cameras. I ended up working in marketing and graphic design, so I would sometimes get to art direct photoshoots. There was one photographer ...
  • I am under the assumption that it's not "if" but when . . . Not in time for me to shoot my kids at gymnastics back in 2012 . . . but is it in time for my kids to shoot their kids? Take care & Happy ...
  • I'm ok with that. My Nikon D750 "only" has 24mp. The 24mp has enough (probably more) than enough detail for what I shoot. Sports and portraits. For landscape, product shots or fine art I could see ...
  • For Sony E Mount, I thought Sony open sourced its E Mount so that anyone that wanted to develop E Mount lenses could do so. https://gizmodo.com/sony-open-sourcing-tech-specs-of-its-e-mount-lenses-5 ...
  • +1 With what I am reading about the Sony A9, it sounds like a lot has changed. But, again, changes now would have done me no good back when my daughters were doing gymnastics. :) And, for the cost, ...
  • Back in 2011, when I was upgrading my camera to chase my daughters at indoor sports, I tried out the mirrorless cameras at the time. And a couple of models between then and now. I actually had my ...
  • Maybe your images are level. It's just the rest of us that aren't! LOL. :) But joking aside . . . have you ever tested to make sure the sensor in your camera is square? It might be the camera. :) T ...
  • If I had the funds, I would probably be closer to getting the Pentax K-1. :) It is an amazing camera! I am just straddled between 2 systems. And my Nikon system is actually making me some money, ...
  • +1 The more I look at the KP, the more I realize that it checks off most of my wish list. Weather-resistant. Dual dials. Pentaprism. Compatibility with my Pentax-A lenses. :) But one of the things ...
  • The Nikon D5100 and newer (in that line) has the same style articulating screen. For astrophotography, someone has actually taken advantage of the fact that that screen moves out of the way so that ...
  • I asked this question in 2011 when my daughter started into her second year of gymnastics competitions, but also her first year at cheer. My short list was the Canon 7D, Nikon D7000 (or D5100) or ...
  • +1 One can hope! :) My kids were starting to do indoor sports 8 years ago. If I had waited for mirrorless to get good enough to shoot sports, I would have missed all the keepers I have. When your ...
  • +1 This is great news! :) A great way to close the loop! :) Take care & Happy Shooting! :)
  • +1 Glad you found it interesting! :) It was just one of those things that I always wondered about. Take care & Happy Shooting! :)
  • For me, I would be more interested in a rugged X70 with a 28mm eq. lens. :)

  • If something works, why change it? LOL.

    I got the original Fujifilm XP10 back in 2011 . . .
