Photographer Switches Camera Systems, Instantly Becomes Master - Fstoppers

Thanks, Dennis.

Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

​Film: That tangible image that you can see and hold.

Thanks for posting, Dennis.


I noticed that this was also tagged under "humour"?  That's where it belongs.  I had to make sure that it wasn't dated April 1.  :lol:


Our very own BP puts the lie to this story.  He has shown that good photographers can get great results, even when they shoot with an iPhone.  Your article confirms that even the best gear won't help lousy photographers get great results.  Assuming of course, that I didn't miss the April 1st date.  :P  :lol:  ;)

Yeah, when I switched from Nikon Digital to a film-disc camera, I made $50Mil overnight - honest.... :wacko: :blink:  Now I'm retired. :o  Go film!!!  :ph34r: 

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
