  • If you can live with a somewhat wide field of view for everything that you take, then you get better image quality with the Fuji or the Ricoh, if a wide range of focal lengths is necessary then ...
  • I don't know what average prices are, and I'm sure that this varies greatly according to the area, but I have seen wedding photography work that's a lot more thoughtful than what you're talking ...
  • I don't know that I would pay for a pro photographer if I were to get married as I'd rater spend that money towards a great honeymoon, or something like that. Still, I have to admit that I've seen ...
  • Replied in Vision
    Well.... I have plenty of experience with both graphic design and photography and I think of them as more alike than different in terms to RAW vs InDesign files. With the photography that I do, ...
  • Replied in Because
    With this attitude then you must feel that it's reasonable to expect free extras with anything you buy... because after all, the customer is always right, no? There are certainly things that are ...
  • Replied in Vision
    Yes, negatives are different than RAW files in the sense that they can't be copied, but not in the sense that they are both the original, source copy, As for the "customer is always right," I would ...
  • I'd be willing to bet that the vast majority of wedding photographers don't agree to give up their RAW images. If this is indeed the case, then your choices for photographers  might be very ...
  • Replied in Because
    Both of those reasons but particularly the second one. I only want to let go of images that I'm 100% responsible for. I don't like the idea of someone that I don't know finishing the job. They may ...
  • ... I wound't think that this is standard practice. I might shoot such a thing RAW and do editing (that's the way that I like to work) but I consider my edited versions of the photos to be the ...
  • Replied in Flickr!
    Yeah, I agree.... I've been on Flickr since '14 and though I have considerably fewer followers than you do (exponentially so) I feel like I've connected with like-minded souls. Folks who seem to ...
  • No doubt... I really don't obsess too much about whether or not my system is the idea l one. I do think sometimes that as happy as I've been with m43 gear, if I were to suddenly have some cash ...
  • Yeah, I have a pretty solid understanding about what different kinds of cameras can do and I suppose that if I had lots of choices that I'd find uses for all of them. I don't really have the means ...
  • Good point too and there's also for lot of us the m43 system is the best compromise between IQ and size. Something like a cell phone or even a lot of point and shoot cameras aren't great ...
  • Makes sense... I like your comment about "art-for-arts-sake" as that to me is ultimately what ends up being the most rewarding, whether or not you're able to get other folks interested in what you ...
  • "M43 is usually good for practical sense when image quality isn't as important but getting the shot is." I'd say that this is true, but doesn't really get to the whole story, which is that the IQ ...
  • Well... you're right about that. I have been doing this thing for a while and mostly took a break from photography for a decade or so (before I got really into digital!). I have to wonder if the ...
  • I kind of felt the same way about these things and I still do with the circular fisheye types of lenses. I bought a rectilinear type, a Rokinon for my m43 setup and I've been very happy with it. I...

  • That's kind of a sarcastic way to put it. I totally understand the desire to have other folks enjoy your work. Nonetheless, I'd say that you're putting the cart before the horse if this is your ...
  • Yeah, I agree... a lot of complaining about something that shouldn't really be so controversial, taking a bout the pros and cons of particular formats. I don't find such a discussion annoying at ...
  • I absolutely agree with you that FF bodes have gotten small to the point that they aren't significantly bigger than most m43 bodes, barring the very tiny models that are more limited and lack ...
