Blog #127 Camera Crazy

 

I’m pecking the keys for this blog post on the autumnal equinox. This is the date on the calendar when the new iPhone has been announced, and the camera makers are pushing new models out one after the other.  It’s all ahead of the Christmas and holiday season to temp those of us on the road to recovery from a bad case of GAS. 

Nikon D610

The much-anticipated mirrorless Nikon Z series has recently been announced and save a dual card slot (shame, shame, Nikon) it checks all of the boxes and promises to be a stellar piece of modern mirrorless magic.  Canon has made its offering, as have Fujifilm in its latest iteration of the professional Grade  X-Series with the pinch faster and slightly better at everything X-T3.  The Pentax K1 has got some sensor magic never before known to mankind like some sort of Machiavellian pixel shift wizardry from summonsed from the underworld.  Then comes the iPhone Xs with its double lenses boasting adjustable background blur after the picture has been shot. Seriously? Ok, take my money already you fruity fuckers. 

If lighting fast smartphone sensors, highly evolved APS-C numbers, or full frames stuffed into sexy and svelt mirrorless weather-weather-resistant bodies don’t give you inspiration to make two-dimensional image art, then there are the Medium Format offerings from Pentax, Fujifilm, Leica, and of course Hasselblad. 

GAS is hitting hard these days.  I feel like Lloyd Bridges from Airplane  who periodically reports throughout the movie “Maybe I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue” (or some other drug like drinking). Maybe I picked the wrong year to decide to quit buying camera bodies. Well…the year is over and the holidays are around the corner. 

In the mean time, I’ll settle for the Fujifilm 16mm f/1.4 wide angle marvel of a lens.  What’s on your Santa list? Whatever it is, you better be good for goodness sake. 

 

The light is always right.
