  • OK, I took folks' advice here and tried some options for opening up my AVHD file. I couldn't get Quicktime 7 to even recognize the format so that's out as a way of converting it. I did look online ...
  • Replied in Overlap...
    There are DSLRs with the same sensor size as mirrorless cameras so in that respect they're comprable in terms of perfomance. They quite differnet in terms of design and operation though so it's ...
  • Replied in Why?
    Interesting to think about... I feel like the tech for digital imaging has gotten so advanced in the last few years that there isn't really the call for the kind of advances that were experienced ...
  • Replied in Why?
    It doesn't seem like this stuff is likely to go up in value.... so why bother? Sure, there's going to be a relative rarity of these cameras but then again any outdated model regardless of grand is ...
  • Replied in Yes you do.
    ... and the idea of peer review is something that applies to the sciences but not to the arts. I think that the statement that's being made is all about what someone wishes were the criteria for ...
  • 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 ...
