1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    does this mean we need to make a spin-off ***baller photo thread*** where excessives and outrageous luxury accessories like silk a&a* straps are discussed :p

    but seriously, the silk is comfy.

    Ya silk would be nice
    I just havent got any irritation from the nylon or anything like that so the silk just wouldn't be worth it for me. I'm totally talking out my butt here, maybe I'll handle a A&A strap one day and change my life

    Really like that third shot, great perspective, being low and slightly askew, and that loan figure in the middle of the road. Very cool.

    I'd love a D7000, but I don't feel I've "outgrown" this camera yet =P.

    Thanks for this. I'm going to order a strap or 2 for my G12. I've been wanting a Canon Red/Black EOS strap for it, but it's way too much for a camera that's rather compact.

    One of the best things about the D50 is that it's got a built in AF motor, unlike the later beginner level DSRL's that Nikon released. That means you can buy a bunch of cheaper lenses which are compatible with film and full-frame DSLR bodies. D50's a great little camera to carry around.

    I've got a D700 and still use a D50 from time to time when I want a lighter set-up - yes it's an older model but it takes great pictures - 95% of the time you couldn't tell which camera I'd used for A4 prints.

    I've got some A2 sized prints out of my D50. The low-light performance is showing it's age, but other than that it's great.

    I didn't know we had our own photography thread :slayer:

    Been fucking around for a couple of years with digital and film. Would like to get some training at some point, esp wrt film processing. Really bummed I didn't bother taking classes when I was in school.

    A few of mine from the last year or so--most of these have been posted in the other photo thread or the Sufu photo thread

    Selection of other shots. Either taken with my D50 or film of some kind. Mixture of Thailand, Cambridge and the Kinetica Art Fair.

    After starting with film (used to pretend I was an art student and sneak into the darkrooms at my university), and then switching to a compact digital camera, I now want a compact digital interchangeable lens camera. I need a digital camera for work that will take photos of everything from flowers to wildlife fairly far away. I, too, was thinking of the Sony NEX6L with the 16-50mm and 55-210mm lenses. I simply don't have the time to work with film these days, and I'll be using the images in a digital setting (presentations). If anyone can recommend a better camera for a similar price, I'd appreciate it.

    I recently got the Fuji X-E1 which I love, but considering your lens choices it might not be the camera for you as the Fuji range mostly consists of primes. I don't think you can go wrong with the Nex6 though.

    I really should have separated those two sentences, am not suggesting anyone start with film but just sharing what for me was the greatest advice

    That said, the nex system is great if you get used to the menu system which is different than dslr or m43 ones. I like the nex specifically for the peaking feature which is great for manual focus since I just shoot with old m mount lenses but don't have the time to deal with all the requirements of film right now and an m system is much more expensive.

    The other reason I prefer the nex is its larger sensor compared to m43 cameras. And now there are much more lenses available both zoom and prime for anyone looking into this.

    Ultimately no amount of recommendations and reviews will ever compare to playing with the cameras and seeing what feels best in hand. Everyone has different preferences and requirements and shoots differently. And if you're after a generic solution then an exchangeable lens system is really just overkill for what a p&s could accomplish easily...
