I love my camera. Here's why.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I love my camera. I got my first DSLR around 2005 when I was in uni and started taking landscape and nature photography somewhat seriously starting in 2007, when I found my niche while travelling around New Zealand for the first time. But since then, I've always found myself wanting more out of my camera. More pixels, more dynamic range, less noise, better autofocus, and so on. I always felt limited by the gear I had.

 

 But a few years ago, I bought my current camera. I won't say what make and model it is because I don't want this to be about brands, which is also why I didn't specify what my previous cameras were. Quite frankly, I'm happy with it. Sure, I've got a few little nitpicks, because nothing is perfect, but I feel no need nor desire to upgrade to a newer model. The resolution works for me and I wouldn't want less but I also feel no need for more. The autofocus works great for what I do (mostly landscapes kind of stuff). I could see how a wildlife or sports photographer would be left wanting as the newer model has a better autofocus system and a faster burst rate, but that's not a priority for me. For the first time in my life, I don't feel like the camera is imposing any kind of limitations on my photography. The noise levels and dynamic range are great and newer models don't offer much, if anything by way of an improvement.

 

 It feels good not to have "I wish I had X" go through my head when thinking about photography. I can concentrate on just going out and shooting and not worrying about whether I'd get a cleaner image or a higher resolution if I had something different. And nothing on the market offers anything close to a compelling reason for me to upgrade, even among other brands.

 

 My camera may not be perfect, but it's pretty much perfect for me.

These nitpicks aren't really things that bother me, though. Like, I wish it had a fully articulating screen instead of the tilty screen, that both card slots were USH-II, and a few other little things here and there. But they really don't bother me.

I C, I have problems with my camera but those little thing make you think or do something different.

Example

1. no live view well( I do everything in viewfinder)

2. no video (well I do stop motion now)

cf card I have to wait awhile

I met a guy in 2017 in Taijkistan. He was cycling from China to Europe. He was sponsored by a camera shop in Malaysia. He would open an exhibition after he finished the trip. And he only carried a Nikon F(yes, film camera), a 50mm F2 lens and many rolls of film with him the entire trip.
