Not to mention what's in your pipe. Oh how I'd love a bit of dry stuff in a pipe now.

Purchase: Fujifilm X-Pro 1

Reason: I don't like to carry large/heavy DSLR cameras around other than for work so got this to replace my rather unused film camera, a Canon P. I use LTM and M lenses, including this mint Nikkor 10,5cm/f2,0 PC lens.

The very problem this camera faces IS its retro look. It functions well: manual exposure settings are easily accessible, as is shutter speed, and if you have the right lenses (or use adapted lenses) aperture and distance scales. However, because it _looks_ like a 70's or 60's rangefinder camera, you want to use it as one. There is no rangefinder functionality (as we know rangefinder cameras) in it, nor is there an accurate distance scale on the Fuji lenses, so it is absolutely NOT a rangefinder. 

 

I find its ergonomics wonderful and it is so much easier to shoot a camera that displays its settings to you before it is even on. Most cameras today went overboard on auto settings so that you have no idea at all of any function except off/on before the camera is powered up - that is, unless you are using non gelded lenses with real aperture rings.

 

Overall, it is much nicer to use than a modern SLR, but I'd much rather Fuji made digital SLR that functioned and was sized like a 1970's SLR but with functionality for AF and auto exposure. A digital FE with AF if you will. That would be killer. The Fuji X-Pro 1 and X-E1 and X100 are the closest thing to a real, tangible digital camera in the 00's.

That is definitely a consumer suggestion worth tons of consideration... how much did she set you back? Even without some of the other functions... I might consider it a worthy investment if only as a means to get my retro fix satiated. O_O

You will be able to purchase this additional option through your MyTesla page in the near future.

I just scored a Q701 from the FS boards. From the pics the seller provided the can looks in pretty good condition. Let's see if it plays nice with the amps I already own if not I'm going to have to invest in a more powerful high end amp bigsmile_face.gif I should have my new toy in a couple of weeks.

I just got the email from Heir Audio not even an hour ago asking I confirm my order so they can ship it out to me. My Heir 4A should be on their way soon



I have the Q701 coming my way in a couple of weeks and now the 4A's are on their way. All that's left is for my Paradox to ship and besides maybe possibly looking into a top tier amp I should be good until next winter

Thought it might help the OP and you get along better. I think that is what you meant.

Yes missed it out. Typing on mobile is not as easy as it seems.
