It may be time to buy a new camera. I have been taking photos with my Pentax K10 since 2006; I like what it does, so why change? I feel a bit of pressure from all the photographers around me (all self-induced.) They are using $3000 and $4000 cameras. Mine cost just under $1000 for body and lens. It is only 10mp. Do I need more?
I do like the Canon. But will it make me a better photographer; I don't think so. My vision is my vision no matter what I shoot with, right? Any suggestions? I really don't have $3000 to spend on a new camera. In fact, I really just love my Holga 120N ($25). If you have any ideas or thoughts on YOUR favorite camera, please shoot them my way. Nikon? Canon? Sony?
I would love to hear what you all are shooting with and see some of your work. Provide links to your photos if you can; I'd love to see the work and know what camera made each photograph. Thanks for all your comments and e-mails.
~Okay, here it is the cute little plastic medium format camera~
It takes wonderful Pics and can be found HERE.
Become.com is also a great place to get sports stuff: injury gear (wrist brace?) , Olympic weight sets?, maybe even Wilson golf clubs if you like that sort of thing. Personally, I'd stick to buying my camera gear there. Or HERE. Become.com has a great and diverse selection of ALL sorts of cool stuff: running shoes, books, printers, you name it.
Have fun with your new Holga! More pics coming soon; I just sent off three rolls (til I learn to develop my own.)
Got a new Holga 120N! Click on the link to read about this cheap, medium format, toy camera. The scans are pretty poor quality but the desired effect is obvious: strange and unpredictable light leaks, dark lens vignetting, and one specific focal point with everything else fading to a blur. Simple and fun.
The film is scratched by a rough edge within the camera. I could have taken it out in photoshop, but...I like the effect.
I mean, really, it's a plastic camera.
