    Re: Portraits of Your Gear

    I shot >100 digital and 10 film images the other day. It was about 4 hours on the digital images (sorting and post) and 6 hours on the film (developing, scanning, post). Keepers were 5 and 1. Film is behind about 7.5 to 1 on keepers/hour I'm doing it as much to have another tool in the quiver (as it were) and because there *is* something fun about the old mechanical processes long as you don't have to do it all day, every day.

    Oh, a portrait of gear... this isn't what I used the other day. 10 shots from this would be a lot more work. That was just one roll of Ilford Delta 400 in a Mamiya 7II

    Re: Portraits of Your Gear

    Scored an A7 yesterday, with 3 original Sony batteries and a Meike vertical grip.

    Not sure I need/want the bulk of the grip, but for the rest everything works fine.

    The Hawk adapter and M39-Elmarit 90/2.8 (1959) were already mine, and were mounted because using a 90 mm lens on the 90th day of the year seems like a good idea

    What I have been shooting recently. Fujifilm X Pro2 with XF 23mm, f/2.0, XF 14mm, f/2.8, and Minolta M-Rokkor 90mm, f/4.0. What I have been not doing recently: cleaning lenses.

    Ohhhhh there are . It all depends on how you define NSFW and what kind of gear waters your mouth .
    Vintage gear can be so sexy .

    Still happily shooting with my trusty X-Pro1. I really enjoy using the smaller XF f2 R WR lenses on this camera.

    Re: Portraits of Your Gear

    After a long search, I finally found a mint condition Mamiya 645 200mm f2.8 APO this morning. On its way from Japan to Alaska now.

    Matt -- I had read the SL was big, but your photo really shows how much smaller it is than the S. I know which camera I would take if I was was going on a walking trip in Europe or anywhere else. Over the last several years, as I've aged into my mid-60s, I've come to appreciate the pleasure of traveling with and carrying lighter gear.

    Whoops! I'd deleted that post as I was going to take a better picture of the two cameras. In the meantime, here it is again:



    The SL with the 24-90 zoom is much closer in size to the S. Here they both have very wide angle lenses. The SL with a 50 Cron is downright tiny.

    Best,

    Re: Portraits of Your Gear

    But that S sure looks pretty. But that is the dilemma--cameras that feel good in the hands, don't always feel good around the neck or in the bag. Still, I err to the "in the hands" thing. If a camera is not satisfying to use, it probably does not get used. Still, I am really enjoying the X Pro2. It is small and light, but big enough to feel like a camera.

    But weight is a thing (or rather gravity mixed with mass (I might move to the moon at some point)). I never used quick release plates just because the weight added up; the extra time to mount a camera on a tripod never bothered me. I always use the mountain climbing credo--watch the ounces and the pounds will take care of themselves. It is surprising how all the little things add to the load.

    This is so true, and one of the reasons why I use m4/3 for travel and good, old Nikon DSLRs for 8 hours around the race track.
