  • Danattherock is evil

    So......
    I go to this Canon forum that Dan suggests... http://photography-on-the.net/forum/index.php
    and three days later now.. I have looked at several million pictures, and read hundreds of posts etc.. Now I have ordered several hundred dollars worth of camera stuff that I can not live without...,, yet a few days ago, I never even heard of some of the items..
    My wife thinks I am nuts, and when I told her that Dan sent me to the site, .. all she could say was.... " This Danattherock is evil "..
    Thanks Dan

    Your welcome

    I never said it was an inexpensive hobby. My wife is as baffled as yours, I assure you.

      At least your still in the "several hundred dollars" category:eek:. For me, that site is more addictive than this one!! One thing about it, it is a hobby that you can do for a long time!!

        new stuff

        A few weeks ago I got the chance to play with the G10 canon. It is a pretty cool little camera with big attitude.
        It shoots RAW, it shoots like 4 FPS, 14.3 Megapixel, Image Stabilizer, shoots manual, has a tracking servo called motion detection tech. It shoots from under 100 iso up to 3200, It has face detection , and face detection self timer, makes HD movies with 30 fps. at 1080 p, and some more stuff..
        so I thought,,, well I will have to get one of these...
        So I get home and start looking at prices and such,, and you turn me onto this Canon site, and now I am not going to get the G10,//// I am going to get the SX1 IS that is coming to USA in April.
        It has all the same stuff as the G10, but also has a 28mm wide angle 20X optical zoom. Not as many pixels at 11.5 with a 10 megapixal actual use.
        ...Reading the threads from many of the pro shooters at the canon site, I see that many of them are using the G10 and the SX10 IS as grab and go, or incidental photo camera's and they are really using them alot.. The new
        with the RAW and all the manual settings etc. these little jewels are getting some great reviews..
        So,, anouther 600 bucks for that camera when it comes out in april in USA.
        Also did you see that new camera they have for under water? shoots at 33 feet deep in salt and shoots 12 megapixel ,, its shock proof also.. and its a pocket camera..
        just amazing stuff..

        bla blah blah..... $$$$$ blah blah blah
        thats what my wife is hearing... lol


        anyway..

            37.5 Mega pixel camera..... I was going to get it, but I am waiting for a full 38 megapixel model to come out

              The home has survived my purchases thus far...I don't think it would make it through that purchase!! I have the Canon G9 that I take on the atv when I don't want to make it a photography trip and take all the gear. It does a nice job. It does take some getting used to. The main reason I got it was for the RAW function. If I should come across something that is photo worthy, I can process just like my other stuff. It doesn't perform well over ISO 400...Way to noisy. I heard they improved this problem a bit with the 10, though.

                  The camera does not

                  make a photographer..... and so I digress and admit that I have no proven talent for taking great pictures, even given a Leica $45,000 dollar camera my pictures would look just as well done with a disposable kodak from safeway.... Except the Leica would have 35 megapixel extra to show my inabilities.....
                  I see what you guys and gals do with your camera's and I am oft times speechless as to how you have created such art..
                  Goalie is an example of taking pictures that take my eye and make me want to look at the picture and study it..

                  Guys, make me feel inadequate with my Rebel XT 8mp with only my 18-55mm Lens
                  and Dan your pictures from Maine and such are amazing to me,
                  Eric, your pictures have such wonderful color and clean edges and contrast, Ray your pictures make me feel that I am seeing those scenes though my own eyes with depth and feeling,
                  Tull, your talents are so many that where do you start...
                  George, It is so cool that you have a desire to get even better by attending a class, and yet the stuff you have already posted in the past is great...
                  Majik is of course has more talent in his little finger than most people have in their entire body..
                  the list goes on,, and it should........

                      I could not have said it better myself. Until I read this, I could not have told you why I love photography so much. Yet, now it would be easy. That is it man.

                      Example, my grandmother was recently put in a nursing home back in NC. The wife and I have been working on Nantucket, Mass for two years and made several trips up to Maine while here. I never realized how important pictures were until just two weeks ago I took her about 40 4x6 prints of various Nantucket/Maine images I had recently gotten. She looked like she would cry. Asked me a million questions, "where was this taken", "what is that", "when did you go there".... I will never understimate the power of a photograph again. Thanks to Alaskacanoe for articulating this so well. Below are a few images that she put fingerprints on more than others...

                        The Power of a Photograph...Indeed

                        Alaskacanoe-
                        Congrats on taking what sounds like a big step on the slippery slope in the wonderful world of photography.
                        I haven't posted (not sure what of mine holds a candle to some of the images in this forum)...
                        But I watch from afar. :rolleyes:

                        Danattherock-
                        Those 'fingerprinted' images bring back some fond New England memories!
                        Thanks for sharing...

                        The turn this thread took, reminds me of a song from Simon & Garfunkel, that is often in my mind when I shoot:

                        "Time it was, and what a time it was, it was
                        A time of innocence
                        A time of confidences

                        Long ago it must be
                        I have a photograph
                        Preserve your memories
                        They're all that's left you"

                        ~Simon & Garfunkel

                        Unfortunately, it's all too often true, so 'preserve your memories'...
                        Note to self - 'Do NOT click on that Canon link!'

                            The expensive part comes later, when the wife starts to understand how much you REALLY ended up spending on this sweet addiction we call photography . . my largest expense to date is the diamond ring she wanted for our anniversary . . . it costs more than all of my gear put together . . .
