Would a full size Leica Hater Blog better serve your needs?
That way,you would have a complete record of your Leica hater work and when people ask you questions,you can point them to a particular post.
You will get the recognition you deserve.Sigh
,there is absolutely no way to make everyone completely happy within the confines of this thread.
Especially when the content is mostly:
"Hi,I took another picture with my compact camera"
Sprinkled with the odd "good guy Leica" and "scumbag other model" post...
I enjoy being behind the camera and some people just want to look at neat pictures.
Photography is a hobby that seems to have hard lines drawn in the sand when it comes to brands,or in this instance even a particular model
Beyond that,what these new digital compacts have shown me,is that photography has become much easier.
Lightroom has its place in photo touch up but much of the barrier to enter good photography is now gone.
I've used a variety of camera gear over the years (many brands) and only care to the extent that it is a tool to achieve a purpose.
Perhaps I should start a Street Photography thread to mitigate brand references.
Focusing on photographic style is what makes the professional emerge from the page.
Discussing the upsides and downsides of the new Leica M9-P,giving the reasons why
you dislike it,is just not fun.
I suppose people are sick of everyone
being a photographer.
Never mind,have a seat over there -while we go about our hive mind ways.
Photography is an art,a highly technical art.
Nice to hear you enjoy your D-Lux too!
Why not post a few of your 100,000+ Leica camera shots?P.S.
-the original full post from gshay was deleted,past 24 hours so the cache is deleted too.
The quote was snipped from a comparison to the Leica M9/Leica D-lux 5/Panasonic Lumix LX5 (owned them all?)
Actually,gshay was quite glowing about the D-Lux 5,too bad the OP was scrapped,I still would have preferred some photos...Edited by 5aces - 4/8/12 at 5:51pm
