    Re: OT - Any Photographers here

    I'm kind of a photographer on hiatus. I got really into it towards the end of high school, but college leaves me little time to just go out and shoot. Since I never have the time to invest, I haven't invested in an SLR, either. I know that I'll pick it up again as soon as I have a chance (I miss it, and I'm always seeing opportunities for good shots), but until then I have to content myself with appreciating the work of others.

    Do any of you develop your own film, or is everyone using those newfangled digital whatchamajiggers these days? I always thought the most enjoyable part of the process was manipulating my film to change it from pictures into real art. I suppose if you're doing action shots or other photojournalism, there's not a call for that, especially not if you're doing it for profit.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    I learned how to develop my own film, but it cost to much so I went digital. A lot nicer since you can keep or delete what you want to!

    Wow, I love his style. It's hard to get an accurate feel for his work just from the few candid FB shots and all the posed sports/senior portraits, but even in those he did some cool stuff with editing. Can't say I've seen a couple of those effects before.

    Re: OT - Any Photographers here

    I wish I could get a digital SLR camera, but those things are too expensive for a casual hobby. Some day, when I'm done with college...

    It is totally worth it, we have a digital rebel. Last I checked we had taken 40G of pictures since the boys were born 3 years ago.

    Agreed. I have a Olympus E500, a 8megapixel dslr, with a couple of lenses. I pretty much take it everywhere we go, and my wife and kids have gotten used to me taking shots constantly.
    Last Tuesday at my daughter's softball game, I was shooting SHQ jpegs at 4 to5 frames per second and ended up with 152 pictures. When it comes to shooting your kids in action/sports, the speed of a dslr is definitely the way to go.

    Re: OT - Any Photographers here

    Currently shoot with a Sony DCS-V3. Works well except the ISO range isn't great, fps lacks a lot, etc. I do shoot in raw mode and use Lightroom - this one one of the best things I started doing!

    Have my eye on the Canon 30D for sometime later this summer or in the fall.

    Re: OT - Any Photographers here

    In the alternate universe where I will someday have 6 grand to spend on a DSLR, I would love to get my hands on one of the EOS-1D series. I had a chance to use one of those recently and fell head over heels for it. Oh well.

    Re: OT - Any Photographers here

    I've taken a large number of photos primarily of landscapes and wildlife. Geographically most of my photos are from either Alaska or Africa where I have vacationed the last couple of years.

    Re: OT - Any Photographers here

    The following lists all of the current digital point and shoot cameras having a big zoom range (required for wildlife) that are worth buying in my opinion. If you were interested in a DSLR that is whole different deal:

    Kodak V610 - Quirky camera, super small probably smaller than the camera you now own but doesn't have image stabilization important for big zoom. My least favorite of these listed.

    Kodak also makes some more traditional zoom point and shoot models but I don't list them becasue they just aren't as good as the other manufacturers.

    Canon S5 IS, great camera no downside, I own the last years model S4 IS.

    Pansonic FZ8 great camera I own last years FZ7, downside is somewhat noisy sensor, upside best focusing big zoom camera.

    Panasonic FZ50, good camera but only real advantage over FZ8 is the ability to manual focus may be important in cold weather, downside very large for biking, noisy sensor.

    Pansonic TZ3, smallest of the Panasonics but also smallest feature set including no viewfinder must use lcd.

    Nikon S10, another quirky camera, fast lens, small but no IS.

    Sony DH7 not certain bout model number but possibly the best of the bunch? Longest zoom, no downsides.

    Fujifilm 56000, takes the best photos of the bunch and has manual zoom. Downside least zoom range and no IS.

    Olympus makes a competing model but isn't any better than the kodaks.

    Strictly amateur. I have some pictures online if anyone would like to look. I'm always interested in a critical eye. Anyway, enjoy.
