I’m finally selling some comeras I’m not using anymore, among other things I got a lovely Ricoh GR1s DATE for sale.
I’m really not much involved int he 35mm but I have to say this is one of the best camera for the so called streetphotographers (whatever it is)( #hipster #apple #starbucks).
I would be more than happy to find a new home for it, especially if someone will use it properly.
Have you recently looked at a review of a digital camera? No? I think you should, because nothing come close to be bored to death.
Let me explain, to be clear I was casually looking the D600 review here.
Some years ago (not too much years in fact) reading these kind of review was kind of mandatory, because there was quite a noticable difference between models.
Today is really hard to tell, these kind of review are really for people who can not find nothing better to do than count pixels. I’m serious, I stared at this images for 10 minutes, and I didn’t see any APPRECIABLE difference.
So… please spend more wisely your time, nowdays technically difference in image quality is so thin you really don’t need to worry!
I’m going to sell, because is really stupid to keep something that you are not using, and are not forecasting to use it in the future, especially for the nikon system, wich I think I have not used in the last year more than twice.
I have a complete set of full frame dslr and lenses up for sale, contact me if you are looking for something.
Probably I will keep only film cameras.
I’m back from the US,
actually is about 2 months since a came back, almost three months.
But is only one week that I manage to end the developing process of my film (E6 velvia 100).
It will take at least another months to do the scans, but mainly because of lacking o workspace in my new house (missing work table).
I can tell you howewer that:
what was really missing was a bit more time to take pictures, I was constantly driving (5’000 km in two weeks) so did not have much time to take photos.
I still love films, even if I don’t think I’ve taken any glorious pictures, just looking at them over the light is astonishing.
On my flickr you can see everything.
Well not only Leica announced two new M system cameras, one is actually an improvement over the M9, with live view, videos, electronic viewfinder, electronic frame line illumination, a dedicated exposure compensation dial!!
WTF is this? a Nikon?
It’s gone my friends, or I should says, it’s going but steel stock last.
Well it was nice, not that anybody will cry, in the end who is still using film when you can buy a point and shoot camera that last 2 years at his best?
Well funny enough I contact Fujifilm and it’s 100% official.
More I’ve written to Mr Ken Rockwell, that like it or not, it always been a great defender of film. This is his reply:
Petitions mean nothing, Fuji isn’t the government. If you buy more sheet film, they’ll keep making it. money talks.
So this was a really disappointing reply, instead of doing the right thing and publish this news on his website he is simply suggesting to buy more film, because otherwise it’s a normal market law to stop making it.
Yes OK this is true, nobody could say that film is a great business for Fuji nowadays, but they are still making film cameras, so it should be nice to make the right film to use it.
Well if you really care about velvia please sing this petition.
