My favourite camera


This is my favourite camera at the moment.
I've had Canon Dslr's but this little camera seems to suit my lifestyle and photo skills. Anyone else on here thinking of ditching their heavy gear for something along these lines?
Check out my pictures to see what it can do?
I got photo of the week with it and I can hardly believe it especially with the quality pictures on here!

I could not use a camera with no viewfinder. I also prefer bigger cameras as the control layout is better as the small bodies tend to have to cram controls in making them too fiddly for me, or worse still have touch screen controls.

It is not the gear that produces a good picture. I've seen an excellent portrait taken by Snowdon using a photo booth!

Re: My favourite camera

With these view-finder-less cameras I feel that history is repeating itself in some small way. From the times of the plate camera when people dived under a hood to see and frame their pictures, to the modern day where you can buy Live-View-Shades to help you see your images. With the modern sensitivity of digital sensors allowing you to see live views I can see the attraction, but for me it remains much the same as at best a highly portable 5x4 ... useful for static or slow moving objects.

You have demonstrated that, in the hands of a competent photographer, the quality achievable can be as good as many DSLRs. While these cameras are still in their infancy in terms of capability under demanding conditions, I doubt that many will give up the SLR entirely.

Pros would not get a look in if they turned up with such a device at shoot, albeit that they would be competent to use them. It goes about client perception, and some clients even know the latest kit and expect you to use it.

Re: My favourite camera

I bought my son a Panasonic Lumix FZ45 earlier this year and have been impressed with the results. Because of age and now back problems, I am finding it increasingly difficult to carry round heavy kit and usually find excuses to leave my 1.5Kg tele zoom at home. However, I think I will continue with my DSLR kit as long as I can but I would certainly change to a light bridge camera rather than give up photography.

Re: My favourite camera

I knew digital was the heavy option, but my word Dave...

My favorite camera is my Wista 5x4, which weighs in at 1.6Kg body only; the lens can't be more than a couple of ounces though.

The light weight option for me is a Mamiyaflex C330.

Re: My favourite camera

The camera is just a tool. Its the person behind it that sees the shot and makes the picture.

True; but some tools are better for some jobs than others; and using a tool that you like can make a job easier than using one that you don't get on with.

I won't dispute that a good photographer could take a good photo using any camera; but some types of photograph (and some uses of photographs) dictate the camera choice.

Going on from that, if you only photograph a limited range of subjects, some cameras are simply unsuitable (which is one reason I don't use digital).

Re: My favourite camera

I did take a 5 M Pixel compact round with me at one time (if I was not taking my DSLR) but have hardly ever actually used the compact. I have probably fired the shutter 20 time in 5 years but never processed any of the images because I felt that they were not up to the quality I required. I also have a camera in my phone, but apart from testing it, I have had no use for it yet. My thinking is that it could be useful for recording details at an accident but I would rather that this did not become necessary.

Dave

Re: My favourite camera

Totally agree with Markulous. Nowadays the lighter weight camera's are very good as well. I'm very impressed with my cam on my samsung galaxy s2. So I don't always take my camera anymore. Just depends....
