==========================================================
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...

I read the article. I sometimes struggle with cloudy days, seeing well through 150-600 5.6 lens. I enjoy the viewfinder brightness as my vision changes.

I am not a big fan of milky streams. I try to make images look a little more realistic and yet, show the movement. The big pipe coming from the dairy looks that way sometimes. <G>

Good article, high ISO photos to me, have a nice warmth to them.


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.
