I'm good with OFWAC. Nearly all of my purchases are from the antediluvian era.

give me a break ( my trusty NEX5n says "to" me )


later edit: I just heard, in an radio interview of the curator of "Foto Wien", a month of photography related exhibitions and events in Vienna, that now every day 2 billion photos are taken, and that this is more, every day now, than had been taken during all of the 20th century!

I know more about the gadgetry than I do about taking good photos.

I have only found one talking camera in my life

It had a rather limited vocabulary -- Talker

Actually the OP asks what the camera says "about" not "to" you. My ever growing population of cameras says that I still believe I can improve my skills by purchasing more gear.

probably something about 'enjoying function and form' and 'having too much disposable income'.

All of mine just think about the shame of being used by a talentless lump like me.

I know that some folks look at the equipment, at events, like weddings, but they should really be looking at the photographer.

It’s like going to a fine restaurant thinking those pots and pans are going to make a terrific meal.

For me it's not the camera but the photographs I make that say a lot about me.

Most cameras mentioned on RFF are so posh that they wouldn't speak to the likes of us...

Mine all seem to speak their native Japanese.
I guess I should let them watch NHK with me.

Leica M9 - poor chap can't afford a M10


Ricoh GXR - defiant against all odds


Leica M7 - dude doesn't know Sunny 16, too lazy for a light meter


Pentax ME or Minolta SRT - goddamn hipster


Contax T3 - fashion junkie
