I'd love a image only forum too. I honestly cannot see the point of yet another brand/type specific forum... And gear talk in yet another location? Guess I will stick with this forum then, if the decision is to press ahead with an X specific forum.Photo only site sounds a nice idea to get away from gear talk.
If eventually everyone will swing away from Fuji X... why would you create a forum which by definition will be destined to die? I just don't get it.
No? I still have mine.Remember when half of us had Pentax K5s?
Another good one. My personal preference would be something more about photography in the name,but really, it's the content and culture that will attract or repel.
A bit OT: I was doing a search on flickr the other day for Fuji 18-55mm, and it's amazing how many results you get of pictures of Mt Fuji, taken with an 18-55mm DSLR lens.
There's much merit in that thought, just look at the camera specific groups on flickr, the number and frequency of posts dies as the camera becomes older and is eventually superseded.I honestly cannot see the point of yet another brand/type specific forum...
I agree, but it's clearly the case that a lot of people like to spend their time on a site for a specific system. Some people also like a very high activity site, and with a few exceptions (DPR, Fred Miranda, etc) those end to be the system-specific sites.To me the best thing about SC is the fact that it includes so many various types, brands, forms and usages of cameras.
I agree that it's the content and community that counts. I actually dislike the word "tog" or "togs" as much as the next person, but I think Xtogs is really handy and short. I think it'll be easier to remember as well. So that's what I'm going with for now. If anyone wants to see a site being born, feel free to drop by. You can even sign up and start posting. There's just one subforum there now called "main forum" now, but we can always move threads later. Or you can wait for the official announcement.Another good one. My personal preference would be something more about photography in the name,but really, it's the content and culture that will attract or repel.
I think one of the reasons I like this forum is that it is, at least, possible to ignore gear threads (which I try to, these days, just because I can no longer participate on the latest stuff). A gear oriented forum is a no-go area for me, except Pentax forums, which I use as a resource for finding out stuff about lenses old and new. I think that is the strength of that forum, in that theres a huge appreciation of old gear, and the new stuff doesnt really dominate. (and there are also a few areas for discussion of other non-Pentax gear too, if thats your thing)I'd actually don't think that the ratio of images to gear talk is not really any higher here than there, just the smaller overall volume of each can make it appear that way.
