So life goes on. Winter is back. Trees in blossom are covered by snow. Winter jacket is handy again. Who would have expected that….?!
I decided to make a timeline of cameras I ever used and owned. Time periods are approximate. I don’t remember exactly.
|Canon EOS 300 (film)||1999 – 2004 (5 years)|
|Nikon D50||2006 – 2008 (3 years)|
|Canon 450 D||2010 – 2013 (3 years)|
|Sony Cybershot DSC W-150||2008 – 2014 (6 years)|
|Olympus Stylus XZ-10||2014 – 2015 (1 year use, still have it)|
|Nikon D5200||2015 (1 month)|
|Olympus OMD EM10||2015 – 2017 (1 and 1/2 years)|
|Ricoh GRII||2017 (1 month)|
So, this is the list. I wanted to write it down till I’d forget completely. Obviously I have been shooting with viewfinder for 11 years. And using only LCD for past 4 and 1/2 years. Now, I started to wonder how it is like to shoot with viewfinder. I almost completely forgot. Well, OMD had a viewfinder, which I never used as it was strange, small and ugly. In fact electronic viewfinder is a small LCD anyway.
It is a different philosophy of shooting. Different mind process before pressing the shutter release button. On LCD, in the moment of making a photo, I am looking at the photo that camera interpreted and showed to me.
I would like to try to shoot with optical viewfinder again.
