Boring

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by John McWilliams, Feb 21, 2006.

  1. It's pretty arid, boring, stultifying, take your pick, when two of the
    longest threads are about the fine points of formatting CF cards and the
    all important dustup over......dust.

    C'mon, Canon, Nikon, give us something interesting to chew over this
    week! Please.

    Or we could return to the OT threads with talk about our glorious
    leaders shooting themselves in the foot (and other places), but
    those threads were annoying to some too. All I'll say for now, is
    "How 'bout them cowboys!!!" <g>

    Damn straight!
    If you can't carry two DSLR bodies (with 2 extra batteries for each),
    seven lenses (with shades), 32 Gigs of cards, one portable hard drive
    and one portable CD-R device (with extra batteries for each),
    polarizers for each lens, two tripods (the expensive carbon fiber
    ones, for their light weight), one monopod (also carbon fiber), a
    light meter, four flashes (with extra batteries and RF slave units),
    extra neck strap, voice recorder (with extra batteries (to be
    abbreviated to WEB hereafter)), GPS unit (WEB), 12v adapter, inverter,
    manuals for everything, and the associated battery chargers, well,
    you're just not a dedicated photographer.

    How much did I miss?

    digital is just taking pictures, photography requires film.

    Fearless leader publicly backed up puppet master's handling of the
    events. That's indictment enough. :)

    He probably thought, while snarling, you're doing a heck of a job,
    Cheney, you miserable S.O.B. Not one of their better weeks.

    Just a wee bit. Toss in a 28 gauge and a beer or two and you'll
    be in good shape to miss even less. <g>

    In the celebrity-court world...they may as well refer to indictment as,
    "pre-acquittal."
    :(

    Not quite. Photography requires vision, whether the cameras are
    film based or digital. The one thing I'll concede (and I'm only
    guessing here) is that with the greater popularity of digital
    cameras, if you choose SLR users at random and compare them to DSLR
    users, the film SLR users might have a bit more, on average, of that
    good old "vision thing".

    Is attempted involuntary manslaughter a misdemeanor or a felony?

    Right angled viewfinders, effects filters and remote shutter releases.
    OOer and dont forget the all-important pan vision filter. (that will
    confuse some of the youngsters.

    No it doesn't. Film photography requires film, digital photography
    requires a photo sensor, the same thing only different. The basic skills
    required are much the same and the end result in both cases is usually a
    printed photgraph. Sorry for nit picking

    They need it.
    Unless they are pros (and someone else is paying for the film), each
    shot costs money.
    Before digital, this was a major concern for everyone I knew. With
    digital, once the buy-in is done, the photography is essentially free.
    Now, for me, the "vision thing" can be explored far more, for far
    less.

    I don't think Charles was speaking in a literal sense, but on a
    metaphysical one; as in, "Film is better in many ways; and requires a
    higher dedication and spirituality."
    IOW, bullcrap.

    That's true, and some (but not all) of those filmers don't have
    the vision to see a number of digital's advantages. My current
    digitals don't match the performance of my old Nikon film cameras
    (understandable, as they aren't DSLRs), but they compare favorably
    where image quality and flexibility are concerned. And *very*
    favorably when total costs are compared.
