Comment on The Latest-Greatest Cameras Will Not Make You a Better Photographer by drdbt http://talkingtree.org/the-latest-greatest-cameras-will-not-make-you-a-better-photographer/#comment-2234 Fri, 09 Oct 2015 20:26:26 +0000 http://talkingtree.org/?p=8951#comment-2234 Nathan, you’re preaching to one who chased the technology even if I realize that a newer camera is not going to make me a better photographer. So, you get an “Amen!” from this old man.

Just today I watched the LULA guys gushing about the A7RII. When the A7II was released, I was tempted because it would be an excellent platform for all my vintage glass. (I have a lot of Hexanons and they are crying for a full-frame body.) But I’m waiting. I’m not ready yet.

What I am doing is working on my craft. I’m practicing what I know and working on the post work. The rig I’m using now has plenty of capability for about anything I do, excepting wildlife. But I can adapt one of my long Nikkors or Tamrons easily (once I get them out of storage).

It is far better to spend energy working on the craft, studying the works of other excellent photographers, and practicing the post processing to get the best out of the images. A new A7, Nikon, or Canon body will not provide as much benefit as using what you have to the fullest.

Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

On the “car undercoat” post you were interested in Sugru. I just made this post:

It is fantastically practical for so many things. (Downsides: not cheap for big projects, and it takes a day to set.) It will glue to basically anything, and is very very hard and strong when set. But when in a thin form, it’s also flexible (I’ve used it to make a strap on the back on a small ereader). Many tips on Sugru.com. (I’m not affiliated. 🙂

Although I noticed in the heat, it’s not so beneficial. What I appreciate most is the fact that it protects my lenses from dings though. It’s been very functional now so far. It does feel a little like sand paper!

I’ve been experimenting with various materials for making actual *grips* for cameras and tablets, or sometimes just add a better grip to a surface of an ereader or iPad.
My most recent success was shaping a moderate grip for the Olympus E-M5II with Sugru (sugru.com), and then on top of that put skateboard Grip sheet. It’s similar to rough sandpaper. Man, does *that* give a grip! Much better than all the rubber sheets I’ve tried. It looks good I think, and with enough care can be made to look so good that almost everybody will think it’s part of the camera.

This car undercoating, does it radically improve the grip of the surface?

Yours, Eolake
