      F**k me, why on earth do you have to buy a grip for a D700 to get it to shoot full speed?

      The D700 was always aimed at the portrait/wedding crew, hence the stock 5fps was more than enough.
      The ability to up that to 8fps is at least a functional benefit, beyond the extra shutter release button for the weak wristed.

      more than adequate.
      I've got a 13x19 inch print at home from a photo I took with a 6mp 300D and it looks fantastic.

      Inkjets are very forgiving in regards to dpi. As you know, MP are vastly overrated in that regard.

      If you wanted to offset print at A3+ and want it to look fantastic you'd need at the very least 240dpi at final output size, ideally 300dpi or more for a 175 line screen. As a non-compressed TIF that'd be a 60mb+ file.

      Typical graphic designer–client conversation on this topic...

      Dumb client: "But the file is over 2 meg, what do you mean I can't use on my A3 poster?!"

      the cam is so best but i think the price is more and your thinking about is also good.

      haha, I didn't say cheap. But I do need to justify a new camera first. I'm struggling to find anything wrong with the 60D TBH

      I'd say keep the 60D for at least another 12 months and practice as much as you can, and when you are not practicing, keep on reading on various techniques.
      By that time, you'll get a good feel on whether you are limited by not having a full frame or not.

      Have you received that "Understanding Exposure" book ? Do you think it's helping you ? If you're still at a point where most of what's in that book makes sense, keep on practicing and then come back to it.

      Fuji X-Pro1 Announced

      Shipping late Feb/March. Bigger than Micro4/3, smaller than DSLR, about the same size as Leica M9

      Looks absolutely sweet, specs are looking pretty good too. Hybrid Viewfinder, New Sensor tech, 16MP, APS-C, new mount, 3 lenses at launch. Lots of software improvements inspired by feedback on the X100.





      No firm prices yet, but rumors around $1700 body and $650 lenses.

      I've tied up my wallet.

      Sorry, I don't understand. Why would someone pay that much for a camera body when you could get a fully functional DSLR for the same money? Is it just to save space in your camera bag when travelling, or is there some kind of retro appeal people are drawn to?

      They're both 'fully functional' cameras...

      At the most basic level, photography is about capturing an image. To do that you need a lens, a sensor, and a control mechanism. Rangefinder style cameras such as the Fuji have different control systems to DSLR's, and lose the prism box and mirror, but they don't have to give away the ability to capture an equivalent quality image.

      The Fuji has mostly analog controls. There is a shutter speed dial on the top, and an aperture control on the barrel of the lens. These can be operated in auto or manual modes. What it promises (yet to be proven) is a new sensor tech that they claim will give it the performance of a full frame sensor, along with some very nice and relatively compact lenses. The combination could deliver quite stunning results if it lives up to the hype.

      It's also smaller and lighter than a DSLR, but not by as much as the micro 4/3rds kit. Space and weight saving could be a factor for some, as could the retro looks of the camera. Fuji came out last year with a fixed lens APS-C sensor rangefinder style camera, and it took off based on the retro styling but also on the image quality.

      Rangefinder style cameras are generally more discreet than DSLR's - have you ever had anyone baulk when you pointed your canon at them? They're also less likely to get chucked out of events as they don't look like pro photographer kit.

      I'm normally 50m away.

      I can see the attraction of the analogue controls and if the image quality is good, that's starting to make sense. But for close to $2,500 for a kit, it would need to be pretty impressive.

      When you can pay $10k for a standard Leica M9 and a single lens (forget the $30k Ti M9 limited edition), the Fuji starts to look like a bargain..

      This Fuji sounds close to being an everyman's rangefinder.
