Indeed, brass body. Just like cameras used to have.

Re: On a budget, but want to get a really good quality lens?

Amen, and amen: I was given a Dine 105 mm macro lens. This particular lens was originally marketed to dentists and orthodontists as a dental photography lens. It even has reference markings on the barrel. No auto focus, no camera control of the aperture (There is an aperture ring) it is a completely...

I'm definitely the "erase all" sort.

Re: Concerned That Cameras Do Too Much For You?

And to think they can build a camera that will not take an overly photographed scene but cannot develop a method that prevents people from stealing photographs already taken.

Re: Concerned That Cameras Do Too Much For You?

Fantastic! We have an example already of what spell checking "Auto-Correct" has done to written communication and grammar. Well I remember the huge argument that word processing would lead us down a path of illiteracy. Nowadays when someone older than 50 corrects someone younger than 30 on...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

On that Cosplay themed thing, how might this work: Rather than using the authentic view camera and all that would require, could a modern dslr be contained in something that resembled a view camera, perhaps with the taking lens actually being used. A tethered computer's monitor under the focusing ho...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

Oh, before I forget. On the same note... One other idea I've had was to rent a booth area at car shows that allow car owners to drive their car into a large tent with a nice nondescript background and get their portrait taken with their car. Again, people are prequalified by filling out a form and ...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

There are a number of things that I enjoy photographing purely for pleasure or self-fulfillment there are some things out there I could photograph for monetary gain that I won't because they just don't su...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

I love your idea about the steampunk camera. I don't know anything about the people who participate in cosplay or comic conventions so I don't know if you have customers. I do know the contraptions they come up with are interesting and there ought to be no shortage of subject matter to photograph. I...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

Events are a tough gig, especially these days. Before a photographer can get to a computer to download a picture someone with an phone or tablet can have an image online. Will it be a good one? Will the photographer's be of better quality? Neither question matter because that phone or tablet picture...
