MyOtherJeepIsATruck, I had to log in to say that this isn’t always the best way to handle it.
Mmmm... I wanted that lens when it came out... I still want it. I’m jealous. Send it to me?
It makes me happy to know that people are still reading the older posts I’ve made here, and I’m glad you’ve diverted from looking exclusively at DSLRs!
That simplicity is why I like shooting film occasionally, and most of the time it’s with my AE-1.
I’d definitely get it if they made it. It’s probably the most likely approach if they choose to dive into the full frame market.
Good call, I didn’t know that since I refuse to use the RAW files I get from Fujis because they take too long to export to jpegs and the film simulation modes are good enough.
I wholeheartedly agree. Fuji has been able to make strides with their cameras photography because they haven’t been focusing on videography at all.
Yeah, that ISO level seems low to me as well, but it doesn’t seem to account for ISO expassion into L(100) or H1/H2.
Glad I could help nail that coffin down! For the record, I still enjoy using my Canon cameras, especially for paid shoots when I need to get the shot 100% of the time, since I’m so used to using them, but I enjoy the X-E1 and X-T1 more for “fun” shooting.
I understand why people like to justify their choices with camera format, but I never understood why some DSLR people are simply too high and mighty to admit that mirrorless cameras have come a long way and are now feasible options when selecting a camera. I just recommended an A7 to my coworker (BLASPHEMY!), since he…
“...like taking a photo in a grain elevator”
I shoot Canon and Fuji, and use both on paid and unpaid/hobby shoots.
Old manual focus lenses are fun and often add a great “feel” to the photographs taken with them.
You asked, so here it is:
I approve! Be nice to the af/mf switch!
It was, yes!
Lived near Chicago all my life... this is the only shot I have on my Flickr that has Chicago as the subject... damn kinja. Here is it:
And yes, I’m alive, I did a shoot a couple weekends ago that I’m grossly behind on editing, though, which has kept me pretty far away from most things photog related. On the upside, I get my 300/4L IS II back today after about half a year... so I can lend to TheGirlfriend to bring to Alaska for 6 weeks. ._.
They do decent, averaging 10-15 favorites per photo. Sometimes you’ve got to let your inner photographer self go on vacation in order to be successful on a particular distribution medium.
I don’t think I’ll have any problems with the operation of the camera. I’ll probably throw one of my bodies in aperture-priority, just in case. As for making sure it works... Shit! Batteries and SD cards!
