Some readers will know Mark Smith's Photo Utopia blog which has been on the go for a long time by blogging standards. Mark's been at it since 2006. His posts tailed off last year but they picked up again in 2015. He writes about film and darkroom related matters and has also been an active participant in the Rangefinder Forum.
Anyway, the reason for this post is to say that he has just sold his Nikon DSLR and bought an MPP Micro Technical 5x4 camera. He says he's back to using the same sort of equipment he used 20 years ago. The only digital cameras he has access to now are those his family have and they're just for snapping things for his blog posts.
I'm in pretty much the same place myself. I bought my Nikon D700 in 2008 but it's been rarely used over the past few years. It's pressed into service when I want to photograph something for sale on Ebay or when I have a product to photograph for the blog. That's a pretty shameful waste of a very capable camera.
I've taken some pictures that I really like with the D700 and as a means of providing images for posting on a blog it's superb as there's no need to develop the film and then make scans or prints! It certainly makes a blogging photographer's life so much easier.
Here (above) are a couple of pics of my daughter Freya taken about five years ago, hand-held and by window light. The camera's output is of a very high standard but I can't see me ever going back to digital now so perhaps I should do the same as Mark and sell the Nikon while it still has some value.
It's something I've considered over the years but there always seems to be just enough of a reason to justify its existence. Whilst I think about it some more, you should pop over to Mark's blog and see what he has to say.
