I'm way too busy to see in photographic terms at the moment, and will be for another week and some. All the nattery conversations about doing the math, pixels this, Leica T that, ad nauseam... is beginning to drag on me. I spend most of what little time I have available to skim the internet right now looking at photos and dreaming about what I'll do with the cameras as soon as our annual conference is over.
I ponder equipment. Things shift...
My Sargasso Sea of Polaroids has expanded again. Two people sent me their long unused SX-70 Sonars ... One is broken, I don't know that it's worth sending it out for repair, the other seems to work well. The electronic flash for SX-70 (bought from Impossible, marketed by MINT) really expands the capabilities of the camera. I also obtained an SX-70 filter set from MINT—it includes a semi-fisheye attachment, close up lens, and ND/Yellow/Blue/Green filters. My discovery that with some care I can use the Impossible 600 film in the SX-70 also expands the camera's usefulness. A dozen and a half packs of fresh film await. These cameras are inspiring me for some reason. Along with the A7 and the E-M1.
I haven't touched the M9, the GXR, or even the X2 in a while. Even though I pulled the X2 out to use it, I'm not finding it inspiring me. I have the CL loaded and haven't clicked the shutter on the roll yet ... it's been three weeks. I still haven't run a roll of film through the 1964 Nikon F I had refurbished to as new. It's time for a big closet clean out, I think. Too much gear floating in the closet for comfort, I think.
Such it is, on it goes. Keep posting your photos: they keep me from being in the too much work doldrums.
