  • just FWIW, that photo is a wide angle (28mmFF) view from a busy public sidewalk, and the person you see probably doesn't live there.

  • Okay, interesting to hear. It isnt too unbelievable that people might want to use them, i just havent run into anyone doing so personally.

  • I am somewhat curious as to the basis of the editorializing characterization of these cameras as "popular".
    I know people doing professional work on cheaper cameras, and i know people doing...

  • Joe--the difference between aspects might be minor to you; it isnt to me, at all. I am sure you wouldnt like having all your 2:3 format pictures cropped off at the edges the way they would be on an...

  • Commented on Review: Ona Lima camera strap article

    i agree with the recommendation for the upstrap. i've bought about 6 over the years (a couple for my brother and a friends camera). it is the only thing i've found that actually works as a shoulder...

  • I dont understand the article comment about ergonomics improving since the fe2. Sounds to me like they are already missing the point. Aside from the focus turning the wrong way on nikons (:p), the...
