About me:

5 years of experience shooting 8X10 format studio product photography before getting into a bunch of other things. Also ran a commercial studio and darkroom for a while (back in the film days). Still doing pro still work, but less and less as I've gotten deep into screenwriting here in Hollywood. I show my photos and gear without fear. Anyone who doesn't is pretty hard to take seriously...for obvious reasons. I consider myself competent at what I do and every now and again I do manage to take a good photo. But I never pretend to be remotely close to those who have devoted their lives to the art...few of which are rattling around forums like this.

  • My guy gets a paycheck from Nikon. Maybe he's a janitor. Maybe he's in charge of specification translation for the US market or maybe he's in charge of service here in LA. Doesn't really matter. ...
  • LOL. I'm a former yacht broker and pro sailor. I've sailed everything from Swans to Melges, owned classic C&C, J boat and Pearson among others. Do enlighten me to which boat makes a better weekend ...
  • Nikon will slow F mount development as Z mount gains momentum. Both Nikon and Canon have such great lens coverage at this point, I can't see much issue with slowing production. 3rd party options ...
  • "You're gonna need a bigger boat." ....His line to Shaw was improvised. I have a set-used early draft of the screenplay and of course it doesn't have most of the iconic lines. Don't even think ...
  • My cousin is not in Tokyo, but his position still warrants a NDA and his previous NDA was still in effect before going back to work them. What he hints at or outright tells me is pretty limited. ...
  • Nikon produces film cameras to support those who still shoot film. But stopping DSLRs won't end support for anything. Z mount users will still be able to use F mount glass and no one is getting ...
  • You could be right and you might be wrong. Rob
  • Let me know when Sony makes a camera as rugged as a D5 or D850 with the same capabilities. So far they don't. Sony has work to do, though I'm sure it meets your needs. They do like their new line ...
  • I always did. A Z6 will be a fun upgrade. But there will be a shift away from DSLRs than will end in their near total elimination from the marketplace. Just a matter of time. Rob
  • Yes he did. Pro's use what they want. The Pro Z mount camera will have a deeper buffer, twin card slots and a higher MP count than the D5, but still below the Z7. Companies like Nikon and Canon ...
  • Replied in Plausible
    Absolutely.  I think the D700, D3, D4, D810, D850 and some others will be around for a LONG time. My wife loves her D90. Rob
  • Source "roughy" comes from a source at Nikon. Rob
  • Created discussion thread He's dead, Jim.
    Continuation of the previous thread... So here's my timeline....for the death of the DSLR. I'm not guessing on this. While I may be off to varying degrees, this timeline comes from a good source. 2 ...
  • It's relevant because we're talking about the common resistance we see when new tech starts to climb up and dominate. With a inherent lower center of gravity and far more control over weight ...
  • And that's perfectly reasonable. But one day soon there will be a 600 MPC car and then 1000 miles on a charge. When Tesla releases their new sports car it will be a final statement on which ...
  • Yep. It's a developing technology. As a species we have a knack for progressing this way. Battery tech continues to advance at a fast rate. We've far in just 5 years. So I have no idea why anyone ...
  • While I have yet to buy a Tesla, some of my friends own them. My friend has over 60K on his model S and has seen minimal loss of battery life. He hasn't paid for gas in over two years. We don't ...
  • Just looking to enjoy the transition. I think you won't be waiting 5 years for that. Silly. I can do it with a Casio. ;-) Being a "beta tester can be a lot of fun. And I can always use more fun! ...
