Interests
Almost two years after my last journal entry time has come for an update.
In the meantime I sold some of my camera equipment (even the beloved Pentax 67), quit using the Pentax K-5 and returned to Canon. It was a pleasure to work with the K-5. Especially due its advantage of image stabilization through a moving sensor. This concept is way more efficient: old but nevertheless good lenses are cheap and attractive to use. With Canon each lens has its own built-in motor which adds to weight, dimensions and cost.
Though, I had to realize that with using the K-5 the way of taking photos limits me too much. By now I often do photos in low light situations and therefore I'm reliant on good sensors. The 5D Mk2 has a full frame sensor with more than enough pixels (not too tiny and not too large, so noise is acceptable). It also shows up at reasonable prices.
I do remember what I've written about image quality in technical terms in my post from 2013 and so my fridge is packed with films: color negative, slide and black and white film has remained indispensable to me. In 2014 I had the chance to get a Fuji GS645S "Wide 60", a range finder camera. By the end of last year I sold it, because the format is already served through my Pentax 645N, but I really loved to work with it. So I'm leering at the 6x9 wide angle range finders from Fuji.
Furthermore I managed to dig up a film loader for 70mm film: a-hard-to-get-and-hunted-after Alden 70 Bulk Film Loader. It's now possible for me to test those several old films I managed to import from all over the world.

Let's see if and which pictures I will contribute to the community in the future. It's not that I wouldn't want to share anything, but I'm very aware of how many rights I hand over to dA for free. I don't want to spread everything with deviantART, as this basically is a company – and trademark – itself. They get the gold and members views, clicks, favs (which contribute to dA again, a free, kind of self-fulfilling advertisement). True, space for creativity is given to us, but only a very few members may earn their living from it. Photographers these days only have their copyright they can sell and I have the feeling that (big) companies don't value this too much anymore. Take a look at the terms of service, not just here, but everywhere – be aware of your rights and stop neglecting them, because you're to lazy to read!
I have to think about this.
