    Canon This is what happens when you don't bring the "big" camera . . .

    The RX10 Mk4 is the "big camera" and the G12 is the little camera -- got it? The Mk4 ticks all the boxes on my great camera list, except small. Small it isn't. So a lot of times when I'm rattling out the door for an errand, I grab the little camera . . . "just in case." That's what I did...

    Would You Like This Wishful Thinking Camera?

    As I'm sitting here without much to do, how would you like this for a camera? Improved Foveon-type sensor with better DR handling and some high-ISO performance without falling apart. APS-C or bigger, how about APS-H for a fixed lens compact, that might be interesting. FF if it can be kept...

    What do you actually do with the video capabilities of your camera?

    I like to ask this periodically. What do you actually do with the video capabilities of your camera? I know that I never really use them and they never make a difference in a camera purchase except as a resale feature. If I want a quick video, I pull out my iPhone. It's really that simple...

    Canon Take a camera everywhere . . . and G12 crop-a-thon

    Leica Not bad for a 16 year old 5mpx digital camera

    I know the Digilux2 has been sneered at for being old tech & basic, well tbh it is old & slow but it has that wonderful Vario Summicron lens & the JPG's are lovely SOOC. Think of it like a classic car, only take it out on a sunny day when you are in no hurry :thumbsup:

    Film Antique 4x5 camera creates 20 micron photolithography masks

    Fascinating. Not something you could easily do with a digital camera at home. It looks like a Graphlex 4x5. Reminds me of micro-fiche.

    Carry everywhere camera with automatic image transfer to smartphone?

    Hi all, For a long time now, I’ve been doing virtually all my photography on an iPhone. I’d like to try carrying around a dedicated camera around again, but it’s important to me that it be very easy to share JPEGs via my phone. Are there any cameras which automatically send all pics to a...

    My camera gear rationalization strategy is under way (again!).

    About 3 or 4 years ago I decided to get out of mirrorless and just use fixed lens cameras. I settled on a Sony RX10 III for versatility and a Fuji X100T for its style. This was driven largely by my developing Parkinson's Disease and the resulting clumsiness - a sound decision. In the last...

    Fuji In which the "crap" camera strikes again . . .

    Lately, I've been sticking the XP90 in my coat pocket in the hopes of capturing some weather/sky related images. Its best qualities are that it is small and weatherproof. There is precious little in the way of controls that the user can employ to influence what happens when the shutter is...

    The 'one photo for each camera you own(ed)' thread :)

    Inspired by the "owned too many cameras" thread ;) - post one photo from each camera you own or owned... It doesn't have to be a complete set - just as much as is fun! When I tried to do this I realized that it's going to be tricky to get a full set :-D Especially if you factor in phone cameras :)

    This comparison is based on only one photo shot on each camera as I'm crazy busy these days, as much as I could to make a fair comparison regarding the 3D pop, the vibe, the micro contrast or tonality as some may call it, I believed the lower density, bigger pixels helps to make more vibrant...

    1964 receipt for a camera!

    While sorting out some books for a lady friend, I came across this receipt for my first 35mm SLR an EXA 11B. It had an extensive shutter speed range of 1/2 to 1/250! I would think the lens was a 50mm. Back then receipts required a 2D stamp to render the receipt legal! The EXA 11 took the...

    What's your oldest "living" digital camera?

    By that, I mean what is the oldest digital camera you have that functions fine in all respects? Mine is the Olympus D-550. I bought mine new, but I'm not sure of the year (probably 2003). It was introduced in 2002. Cheers, Jock

    Canon Ah, the joys of a pocket camera!

    In December, 2010, I purchased a Canon G12. It effectively supplanted an Olympus D-550 (which I still have and still works) that I used professionally (no kidding) for several years. (I used the 550 to shoot pictures to illustrate my stories, for which I was paid.) The G12 served as my...

    Since clouds are scattered far and wide across the forum, it seems appropriate to have a specific clouds thread. Jock loves them, so do I, and many others, but a new thread every time is just silly. So here it is, the definitive clouds thread, any time of the day (or night if you're that good!)
