Just look at the size difference!
and your point is ...
no point really
My 8x10 is bigger than your puny Oly.
I do like your rangefinder!
The Zorki 4 broke a few days ago a pin is out of alignment. it was awesome beforehand.
My 8x10 weighs 4lbs 12 oz, with the lens attached.
Thats a bit less than the F5!
The Stylus is a great camera. I used to use it a lot when I ride my bike but I tend to use the fill-flash when I'm riding and shooting. But to do that, I had to take it out, press the button a couple of times to get it into fill flash, and then shoot. I wish it was able to remember the setting when you close the clamshell.
I've had a Stylus ever since they came out. Not the original one, I think I've lost and broke and sat on a few, but I've always had one. Now I have 2 for some reason.
oh yeah, well my 20x30 is bigger than your 20x30.
they made a sweet digital stylus, featuring really good industrial design back in like, 04 or 05 or something.
I would include in the picture a Rollei 35 too. It is even smaller (not to mention better) than most digi-P&Ss.
If you put a motor drive on the rangefinder it would not look so small...hardly scientific :rolleyes:
my Pentax MX with 50/1.7 lens is about the same size as your Zorki
You have about the largest 35mm SLR in standard form. (other can be bigger but only with motor drive attachment, battery pack etc..).
My basic 35mm gear consists of a Nikon F5, Leica M5 and I use to have an Olympus XA that I loved, but alas it crashed. I also use to have a Rollei 35S but the ex has that ($%&*!). Years ago I had a Stylus as well but found the lens to soft for anything serious.
For farting around I use the Leica, but for anything serious I use the F5 or an N90s if I want to cut the weight a bit.
What about the pix that come out of them? What about the person workin' 'em? Quit obsessing over technical matters.
I thought this would be more of a pro/con post.
IMO, RFs are small and have small lenses, but inaccurate framing. SLRs have accurate framing, and can use any lens, but they can be heavy and bulky. Personally, I don't care. I could see myself in Afghanistan with an F6 on one shoulder, and an M2 on the other.
Well, not all SLRs are as gigantic as those Nikons. An Olympus OM will be more like the size of the rangefinder and not a whole lot bigger even with a motor drive attached.
My Hasselblad weighs more than your F5 with lens, back and prism.
I like the F5, though sometimes I wish I would have spent 2x as much and gotten the Bessa R2a and a lens. However I do like the meter and the feeling that I don't have to worry about the camera at all.
RF's are cool and have a Cult like following (including me)
SLR's are most real cameras
P & S's you buy your daughter for her birthday.
Tell that to Eugene Smith.
I don't mean to be disrespectful, but Eugene ain't listening.
If he was actively shooting today, I suspect he'd be using a DSLR. The tools he used in his day were still "current" and "mainstream"
Are you one of the APUGgers that speaks to the dead? You know like the ones that swear that Ansel Adams would now only use a camera phone.
