What it may come down to, for those of us who enjoyed the 120 formats, is that there was something rather good about seeing a big image in the viewfinder.

The perfect solution, of course, would have been the ability simply to exchange a film back for a digi one of the same size.

Yes, I get the cost and difficulty factors, but that doesn't alter the concept itself.

Maybe future small cameras will incorporate enlarged LV within the viewfinder instead of on a rear screen; then, we would perhaps have the benefit of a larger, magnified screen on which to compose... Sure, a different shape for cameras, but they have been changing shape since the first one. I think of something built like a 500 'blad, similar size of screen, but the actual sensor any size (probably smaller) you desire it to be. As long as the viewfinder shows you a large image you should be okay, regardless of sensor shape. It should also let you rotate the image (as in PS) if not actually the sensor itself. Christmas if just around the corner...

Given the hinged rear screen on many DSLR's, you could pretty much do this now, I think??

Mine doesn't pivot, so I can't verify the practicality... but I have often thought it would be nice feature to enable the camera to be used more discretely at waist-level.

The end-of-season period means that my French restaurant is closed awile; he (le grand boss) promised to e-mail when he reopens, but that date is currently open to whim...

Anyway, this is one of the silent sentinels who watch me try to find a parking slot in the winter mud.



Rob

P.S. Do you think I'd gain anything by "investing" in a new Phase mega-camera?

No! You do just fine with the equipment you have now.

Here's Norman Rockwell at night, if such a thing can be imagined...

Usually one sees similar faces rather from men. Somehow funny it's a woman here, and even more sensual indeed.

A deep crop into the full photo, but it’s what I had in mind.

I had a dream - as most people do - and this wasn't it.

Thank you, Eric.

I seem to be in a mental place where I flip from enthusiasm to emptiness by the day; I do wish I could resolve this property problem once and for all and get away to a brand new start in life, or at least to the point of feeling that I am back in the driving seat and that what happens depends, once more, on my own actions or lack of them! This feeling of suspended animation really sucks! Of course I won't be any the younger, but that's no reason to waste precious time and just rot!

I suppose I felt the same way twice before in life: before I found a path into photography; before I managed to get us to the Mediterranean life. Ironic that the next phase is the reversing of the latter all these many years later. Well, had Ann survived, none of this would have seemed that important, or might have found alternative solutions had the same, new, external political conditions prevailed. She was so wise and determined - where and when it mattered.

And I find myself having to watch that bloody Boris strut the stage, ruining more and more people's lives with his little Englander fantasies and absolute disregard for anything but personal power and publicity. A pox on all of those cursed people.

Another rainy night shot. Maybe we can imagine Boris out there wandering in the rain, after his schemes collapse about him... well, that's a dream too, although a bit vengeful.

Funny thing: this image reminds me of a similar but totally different one from La Doce Vita, just prior to the wading in the Trevi moment... you know, where La Ekberg wonders around with a kitten on her head as Marcello goes hunting for milk - poor, besotted sod!

It appears that in reality - ever a dangerous consideration, for isn't playing a rôle in a film also very, very real? - he was actually enamoured of Claudia Cardinale, which is totally understandable. She was something very else in ... They don't make 'em like they used to!
