Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist
    Electrical storms, while pretty, make for a tired ABM.
  • Commodore64 twitter application
  • I'd have to be a body builder before I could manage this
  • In one month, I will be in Stockholm... and likely far more tired.
  • So, I'm pretty much sold on the Olympus PEN and am considering a birthday present to myself.
    • I can start saving now. :)
  • Feeling a little down the last two days. I'm eagerly anticipating this weekend.
  • I want to slack SO BAD today but I have a chance to start testing the next version a day early...
  • Worka worka...
  • I took a gamble with my 401k contributions, moving money into real estate and utility funds. It has already paid off with rather nice returns on those two funds alone. Now if emerging markets would get together, that'd be nice.
  • Also: Healthcare funds FTW.

How are you, peoples? Glad the week is ending?

Current Mood: sad sad

An OLYMPUS?! Going from one of the more expensive setups to the more frugal, I see. That is a nifty setup though. I'm surprised that Tamron hasn't gotten into this headfirst though.

I'm still waiting for that mirrorless NX though. PANCAKE POWAH!

Mirrorless NX?

I am pleased by the form factor with interchangeable lenses. I can carry that with me regularly without wrenching my back out as I seem to do more often these days.

I need to get back to the gym. :/

Yeah, the NX is a Samsung mirrorless dslr. The only reason I'm interested is because their relationship with Pentax that should make them a little easier to adapt k-mount to. I really want a system that combines the low profile of pancake lenses with a mirrorless shutter.

So you want a range finder. :)

To be honest, I'd like to see the mirror box in general replaced with a system that takes advantage of that sensor more by processing all the data into the rangefinder and LCD screen. One thing I give P&S prosumer models a lot of credit over the dslr is that they actually make up for the sensation of holding something like a DSLR and make their bodies much more compact as a result. A lot of DSLR fanatics fail to notice the advantage of how much easier long exposure and spontaneous work can be when you don't have a mirror sliding around while you're holding focus. A mirrorless dslr is very much in the right direction, imo.
