Razor sharp image there Simon.
BTW did you hear the radio broadcasts after the Kodak affair where top photographers said that Digital was great and handy...but they still always used film for any serious photography...

cheers,

Ron

PS What's your new dog called?

I kind of think the same as Ron comments, even if my photographer misses just ignores my insight as far as photo! (- at least - I should say).

Be good fellas!!

Yeah, I heard Terry O'Neill on Radio 4 on film. I studied those guys and they are right

But agencies, magazines and newspapers do not not accept anything other than digital and it has been that way for a number of years.

This one is from a small, digital point and shoot.

The dog is called Queenie because she reminds me of a pub landlady, and they are always called Queenie

Lush colours, great anthracite; I like it!
-

Colours for me anyday; unless it was about the few explicitely textured motives.

I think it was Helmut Newton who ridiculed the fact how people think it´s got to be B&W for to be art. I´m with him on that.

Gimme the thrill of colours as long as they are worth and you able to capture.
-

Your "small, digital point and shoot" still looks like quite capable of RAW. ( Supposedly, with that wonderful sharpness .)

Not to spoil the thread at all; just for the anthracite on metal that reminded me, I digged out the below one though in contrast to the perfect new beams in your motive.

Canon S95 aperture priority mode, f8 @ 1/80sec., focal length 28mm (35mm equivalent). A little cropping in Photoshop, but this is basically how it came out of the camera.

The lens is pretty sharp on these cameras when it's stopped down, as are a lot of cheaper lenses.

Yes Ruphus, this was RAW and I like bird shot colours too.

RE: My photo of the week 28 (in reply to Escribano

Just went and read a bit about the S95.
Seems to be a terrific choice for the pocket and spontaneous shots. Even made with metal enclosure.(!)

Canon puts out great stuff, I think.
That they returned production from China to Japan mustn´t hurt.
If I´m not mistaking, their internal and personnel policies aren´t shabby either.

Guess, I´m sort of a Canon fan.
- Too bad that it hasn´t felt right yet in my unpredicatbel situation to spend ten grands on equipment. Otherwise, I´d just so love to toy around with their D5 and some fine lenses. ( Pardon me if I´m repeating myself; ´think to have mentioned this before.)

RE: My photo of the week 28 (in reply to Ruphus

Ruphus,

I traded my Panasonic LX-5 for the S95. The Panny has a f2 Leica lens and is a great little camera but just not small enough to fit into a jeans pocket, so I found I was leaving it home to often and it has a detachable lens cap, which I hated. The S95 is pretty much in the same class but much more pocketable with an integrated lens cap.

It is also getting a lot cheaper now the S100 has come out. Like all new stuff, it is worth waiting a year or so.

Ruphus,

Hi Escribano,

Accidentally my current pocket shooter is a Pana too. The DMC-LS2.
She served me alright for the jeans pocket while crawling through all kinds of landscapes during travel ( and where you wouldn´t want a chunk dangling down the neck in sinister quarters ).
At that time she appeared like good compromise between compact and decent pictures ( little example below) with not too bad glasses, broad manual access to functions and none-propriety batteries ( really dislike proprietey batteries ).

Having lent it out currently, and the lens scratched already ( don´t ask me how folks come to such even with an occular protected as can be), I thought already to leave it where it is and get me some other kind of pocket device.

Your S95 looks like quite a contender, with brilliant display, RAW etc., despite propriety batteries, that have on top been reviewed as lame. ( If it took AAs instead you´d put some eneloop rechargables in there and be good for a long while.)

Thank you for the hint! I´ll be observing this little gem and see where the price goes.

Ruphus
