Forum: [Classifieds] Misc. -Anything Goes
Post items for sale that are not necessarily related to traditional photography.
Debating the veracity of electronic vs. emulsion is for another place. If at all. The man is looking for a small electronic camera and is a posting member here. Why commandeer his thread and ruin his chances?
I had a Lumix G3 for a bit, which I got last year for $300 with the kit 14-42mm lens. I found it more useful, and not much larger, than my first digital camera (a Nikon Coolpix 5700; I can't believe I paid $1200 for that camera...). I recently sold the G3 because, as with the old Coolpix, I didn't like the electronic viewfinder. I'm very used to the view through a "real" SLR like my Nikon F3. Also I really prefer to use film whenever possible, and I just wasn't using the G3... But it was a great little camera, very portable, with good image quality. And all the m4/3 cameras have the ability to mount just about any lens you can find, with the right adapter. Nice for someone like me with a collection of screw-mount Takumars and other oddball m42 lenses.
Sort of on topic... Nikon's slogan for their Nikon 1 camera is: "Beautiful Pictures you can't get with your Smartphone." I dare say this also applies to Analog photography. If I didn't already have a bunch of Pentax stuff... but I see no need to switch camera systems.
This "Anything Goes" forum is essential in today's photographic world.
Yes, we all love film and the analog work flow, but we can't put our collective heads in the sand and ignore reality.
I have listed and sold some digital items here on this forum, although I've taken some unwarranted heat from having done so.
It seems that some analog users' skins are quite thin whenever the "D" word is used.
GF1 and GH1 for sale. Cheap. I got lenses as well.
