  • Replied in As for size...
    Firstly, it seems that the OP is looking for something a bit more compact... so there's that. I'll also say that if you prefer an OVF, by all means get another Canon, but don't rule out a small ...
  • Replied in Well said!!!
    A very good summation on my thoughts about the subject... Much more succinct though than I've been able to offer. Kudos! To make it even more succinct, I'll stress these two statements, which I ...
  • Replied in yes...
    I think that there's a common thing with creative people where there's a kind of difficult to explain urge to be creative that folks who don't have this impulse don't really understand. I think ...
  • Replied in Yes you do.
    No... I reject that completely... Lots of folks didn't consider punk rock to be "music" when it came out and yet it's all available next to every other genre at record store and so whether or not ...
  • Replied in Yes you do.
    I think that this novel/cookbook think is a pretty awkward analogy, but if I have to respond to it I'd that though I don't know enough about literature to be sure, but I'd bet that there are some ...
  • Replied in Yes you do.
    I think that this is a poor analogy; words being much more concrete in meaning than images often are. There have been a number of photographers, who are well known as "artists"; they show ...
  • Replied in Yes you do.
    All fart jokes aside, it seems that the idea that something shouldn't be called "art" is more often a not a judgment call, rather than a matter of classification. I'm merely saying that to me ...
  • Replied in Yes you do.
    Novelists are defined by the fact that they write a novel... and it's the same thing to me that artists are defined by the fact that they produce work that's meant to be displayed as art... rather ...
  • Damn, that's too bad... I'm ready to retire a Panasonic camera that I bought some years ago and am now using an Olympus... but I really like Panasonic cameras (and still use all Panasonic lenses)....

  • I certainly don't have a very lofty, exclusive idea of what it means to be an artist (to me it's all about intent). Nonetheless, I feel that the way that you're defining it is way too broad. Sure, ...
  • Replied in Yes you do.
    I have to agree with you here (and I rarely do!) but stuff like composition is important for artists, but also other kinds of photographers. Folks who photograph fashion, products, sports, ...
  • Replied in Yes you do.
    Well said... and a much more contrite, probably better way to explain just what I've been trying to get at... in far fewer words too!
  • Replied in Yes you do.
    Yeah.... I don't like all art either, few people do but I still don't have any issue calling it art or the people who make the stuff artists. It's all about the intent of what they do, if they're ...
  • Replied in Yes you do.
    I guess that I would say that the hours that Adams spent in the darkroom perfecting his images don't automatically put the work in the category of art. He thought of himself as an artist and made ...
  • OK... You're certainly not wrong. Still, there's only a few select DSLR type cameras that are optimized for quick focusing using the LCD, whereas ALL mirrorless are able to focus as fast with the ...
  • Replied in yes...
    I think that you may be missing the point of my statement there... I'm calling myself an "artist" merely because of the intent of what I do; I'm not documenting or selling but making images to be ...
  • That all makes a lot of sense, especially if you're wanting to use lenses that you already have. even if you buy a lens or two specifically for the smaller format, you'll still be able to use ...
  • I agree.... even if the Leica's IQ is so good that you could crop it down to the field of view that the Fuji has with no loss in quality, I still wouldn't be too crazy about the idea of shooting ...
  • Replied in yes...
    ... but then again, I believe that anyone who photographs with the intention of creating artwork (as opposed to recording memories, documenting news, selling a product, etc) is an artist. Are they ...
  • So all of these contests require that you take straight out of thr camera JPEGs?
