    Saved some cash for a new toy/tool, can't decide if I want to keep saving for a full frame DSLR or jump in the fuji pool with an x100 or xpro.

    Some recent shots, all film from a Nikon FE w/50mm or yashica t4super. My digital camera is a d3000 with 35mm DX lens and I just haven't been satisfied with the stuff I've been shooting with it. Hope I'm not just succumbing to big sensor hype. I've also considered spending for a medium format film setup but I don't think I'd use it enough.

    I love my X-E1 and the X100 was my other choice. You just really can't beat the size-image quality ratio, and I just can't really imagine myself with the thought of carrying around a full frame dslr for day to day after using the fuji for so long

    Probably my whole life (not that I've lived that long, but still) I've really liked taking pics, like, it's one of those things that I've just always loved
    But I have never had anything more than some simple point-and-shoot camera to try out stuff with, or if I got to try something more advanced I haven't had enough time to learn anything
    So, just curious, what were your "first" cameras?

    also shore, love the pic with the skater

    One thing I enjoy doing is taking photos of bad vandalism, but this recent discovery reminded me of SZ and some SF posters:

    This one just reminded me of Noel Fielding

    My first was a Nikkormat, but then my father was a photographer, so I had access to a whole load of 35mm camera bodies. Didn't shoot with anything but a 50mm lens.

    You're just showing off that it can focus in low-light.

    What's up fellas, cool thread. I'm ToG's brother and we shoot the same camera and lens--Fuji x-e1 35mm (50mm equiv). He wanted me to post some of my recent photos, so here you go. You will probably recognize some of the same places and such. I'm trying to get better at shooting people, so this post will be that, and the next one more landscape-nature oriented.

    basically this camera feels like cheating, though getting the focus can be challenging.

    So...can anyone recommend a not-awful point-and-shoot, preferably a Canon? My GF has a decent DSLR, but it's kind of a hassle to lug around and she mostly leaves it set up for product photography. I'm just looking for something a little more portable easier to use than a DSLR and a step or two up from the Canon PowerShot SD1000 that I've had for probably 5 years at this point.

    What do you guys use for camera bags? If you use one, that is. Or have you seen any cool ones?

    An assortment of Lowepro bags depending on how much kit I'm carrying - not particularly cool looking, but do a great job.

    Style wise I'd go for a Billingham

    For longer trips I use my Filson 257 as my camera bag and add a padded insert.

    It's pretty heavy, though--if I don't want to lug that around I just stick whatever in my backpack and wrap anything real fragile with a tenba wrap
