Synthoid Posted May 20, 2019 Share Posted May 20, 2019 Back in the 1980's, I worked as a photographer and sales rep for a commercial photography studio. It was great experience... studio and location work for corporations and advertising agencies. I had also done wedding and portrait work before that. (Horrors!) Working with the public, especially weddings, can be extremely tedious. I admire the patience of anyone who does that for a living. Anyway, over the last 5 years I've been taking pictures here and there with my smartphone and have been happy with the results, but really missed using an SLR with changeable lenses and all the goodies that go along with that experience. So yesterday I went out and bought a Nikon DSLR since I can use my legacy Nikkor lenses with it, although without the fancy auto-focus features and whatnot. The new camera is great--lots of features that will take awhile to figure out--however, I came across some tutorials on YouTube that were extremely helpful. Then this morning I dug out my old Nikon F2. OMG! I had forgotten how heavy it is. Such amazing build quality, but the weight is unbelievable now. And I used to walk around with that hanging from my neck! The new DSLR's are so much lighter and compact. Hopefully I'll upload some pictures to the forum after I figure all this out.
