Flickering, I roam

Mirrorless cameras are excellent, but Nou is pretty much right in everything he's said here.

If you want something lighter though, then I say go for it. I can definitely understand the want to have something more portable and not so bulky, since my camera and lenses are big and heavy as fuck (the camera body, battery grip and 300mm lens weigh 2.5kg/5.5lbs together )

Acton has an NEX-7 from memory, we should get him to drop by this thread to comment.

I have to pull you up on this one as well. A heavier camera is actually easier to hold steady due to the increased inertia from that extra weight. It's why people like myself, who use large telephoto lenses, are always advised to have a battery grip on their camera, both to help balance the load, and to increase the weight for steadier shooting.

Interesting discussion. On a side note, I want to remind that I'M NOT A PRO PHOTOGRAPHER. This is not my full job, although I do have some projects which i'm getting paid. My goal is to be a better photographer, but as been a PRO, the goal is pretty far away. The economics/employment situation here is pretty f-ed up, so being a self-taught photog is my dream at this point.

I don't have a big interest to start churning about the gear, and it is an endless debate. I have been observing (at different discussion boards) that people have some kind of weird compulsive drive to start showing charts and numbers about F-stops, shutter speeds and all kinds of technical stuff at some point, and I do not see reason why it would not happen in this thread. Maybe at some point

The idea of changing my 600D to mirrorless is just will to start something new, but the price tags are currently far too heavy. I'm also thinking to buy a quite cheap pocket camera (maybe Canon Ixus 135) and keep the 600D in my packback. Why?

I'm quite tall and heavy (195cm/110kg), and when you have "that big gun" on your shoulder and start to shoot on a street, you will be "that guy". It's an interesting, psychological pattern. Every time, when I start to shoot (in a crowd), I'm feeling that 10 000 eye pairs are drilling through my back

Well, that's not a serious problem, coz I usually shoot at very early morning or very late at night. But in crowded situations, it would be nice to pull a small compact camera and shoot in stealth mode. That Ixus has 16megapixels so it's not a super lowsy choice.

One thing I would recommend is that go and rent (+execute good tests) gear before buying it. I have seen many failed purchases when the expectations were too high. And also, don't take this too serious. It's not the camera, it's the seven inches behind it (mostly).

LOL, yeah. I can definitely relate to this

Yea, can't stress it enough, a camera is a tool. Buying fancy gear will never make you a good photographer or even a better photographer (especially if you don't know what you are doing, it can make you a worse photographer).

Knowledge, experience, failure, and trying again is what makes you a good photographer. I have walked away from a day of shooting and had maybe 1000 exposures but I come away with only maybe one out of ten being photos I am really happy with. I consider that luck too for me, I have no formal training like some people on TA have, but even then I doubt they walk away with more than 50% exposures they are really happy with, and I bet they still will only feel comfortable publishing 10% of them.

Wow, that's pretty extreme GAS, especially with the custom film stuff

I GAS a bit as well, admittedly. I've owned 4 different DSLR bodies in the last 7 or 8 years (still have 2 of them), and 11 different lenses (still have 5 of them). I genuinely do love trying out new gear though. I have also purchased a lot of my gear on the second hand market, and actually made a profit re-selling some of it.

I miss having disposable income.

I also miss having two bodies.

BTW, these are my favorite so far.





Receivers is my top favorite and title is very fitting. Excellent stuff.
