I'm from Florida, but living in France. I've been into photography for a long time, but I feel that I've only just begun. I don't know where I'm headed, but there's no use being late. Cheers.

On article Analog gems: 10 excellent, affordable film cameras (805 comments in total)

I love my AE-1P. I learned on one as a child and bought a nice one about a year ago to go back to my roots.

About Aperture Priority...I use "fake" aperture priority by putting the camera in Program mode and manually setting the aperture. So far it has been properly exposing the shots, given that you don't shoot into the light or in a black room. But even if the shots are not perfect, I use it as a sort of art camera. The imperfections are desired.

On article Adobe Creative Suite 6 has been officially retired (352 comments in total)

We all saw this coming anyway. No surprise there. Personally this doesn't bother me. I switched to Affinity Designer for work use to replace Illustrator and it's really quite nice. Plus I payed $39 for Affinity Designer which is only about two months of Illustrator stand-alone. So far Designer is only missing one little feature I used to use on Illustrator. As for Photography use, you can't beat the Photoshop/Lightroom $10 package. Although, if Affinity offered something comparable to Lightroom, I'd still consider switching to Affinity Photo and that. 10 bucks a month for two leading photo programs is a good deal, but I think we all like to just pay a one time reasonable price and forget about it.

I think Adobe would have kept a lot more customers if they were not so greedy with the prices of the rest of the CC suite. Why not like $5 per program per month and let us pick and choose what we need? At least, that's my opinion. :)

fuego6: Nope.. don't need yet another sharing site... thx but pass.

Well, after Instagram lost a half of it's users thanks to their TOS update, those mobile photographers had to find another home and EyeEm is a good start since it has a lot of fresh features that Instagram and others don't have. So, I welcome the addition and I hope they don't get bought out and closed. Time will tell.

My camera would be a full frame DSLR in a compact-ish weather-sealed alloy body with great low light capabilities and WiFi and GPS built in.
Oh wait, Canon just released the 6D. Okay, never mind. They've already made mine. I just have to wait for it to start shipping.

For me, and apparently only me, I like things that do exactly what I want or need without a lot of overkill fluff just to impress others. Sure, the 6D doesn't have a million AF points. But I don't even use all the 9 that I have. "But the 6D doesn't have an onboard flash!" Good! I hate onboard flashes and I prefer to choose when or if I need to carry one around. I'd rather have something that has excellent high ISO performance and focuses in moonlight.

Anyway, I could go on and rant more but I'll stop. I didn't mean this to be a review of the 6D. Sorry. :)
