Nice. We bought some Kermit chairs years ago for yearly remote trips rafting in Alaska. They still look brand new. No more disposable folding chairs for us

Thanks for the education on 4/3rds cameras. I favor point and shoot rugged cameras myself and the wife likes her giant DSLR's. I just got my Olympus rugged TG-4 before our last trip. So I guess it was something for the Airstream because I take more pictures of the Airstream in different places than any thing else. I will relay all your great info and see if she wants to down size to the 4/3rds format. It would make it easier on me because I always have to carry her giant camera gear bag everywhere. Thanks.

Funny... lately I seem to be using my cameras more for Airstream photos than anything else, also!

You would LOVE carrying m4/3 camera gear for the wife vs. DSLR gear. I must say, the future IS mirrorless. DSLRs are big, heavy dinosaurs for all BUT some pros who require them, these days and those days ARE numbered.

Coming from a life long-career as a full-time commercial photographer, I couldn't be more thrilled with the advantages and performance of m4/3 system gear.

I hope the post may be helpful to someone.

Great info! We are still working and treat all of our travels as vacation trips and have to take a gazillion pictures. When we pack the Airstream up for the road, camera gear is a high priority item. Can't leave home without em. Thanks again.

You're welcome, friend. Camera gear is a BIG deal to me too, STILL... especially while traveling and, even in my retirement.

I guess, once a hard-core photographer, always a hard-core photographer!

I'll be doing whatever I can to capture the best images that I can, as long as I can.

Pass along to the wife, please, DON'T underestimate the post-processing aspect (computer editing). Ansel Adams did NOT skimp on emphasizing "darkroom" skills and today, we can't skimp on emphasizing our "Lightroom" skills! It makes ALL the difference and just like in Ansel's age, is more FAR important than whatever camera model you decide to buy! The camera only captures the basic elements. It is up to the skilled image maker to "develop" those basic image elements into something magnificent. The camera is just a basic tool. The PHOTOGRAPHER is what makes all the difference... in his/her choice of gear, image-making decisions, and post-processing development & printing skills.

You can buy the best scalpel on the market... but does that make you a great surgeon?

You can buy an amazing array of kitchen gear, but does that make you a great cook?

At the end of a magnificent meal, a guest once asked his hostess... "that dinner was one of the finest I have ever eaten!... what kind of stove do you use???"

Dhart,
Thankyou so much for taking the time to provide such an in depth answer to my question. I did not know about the 4/3 cameras and will definitely do more research.

To the gentleman's reply about keeping ON Topic: Really!! I thought the photos that Dhart posted where excellent and wanted to know what equipment he used and yes they would enhanance my Airsteam experience!

Agree with you, but it is the OP's thread and his request should be respected.

Thank you.

Moderators: if you wish to delete my contribution above, please do so. Thank you. And, my apologies for not immediately starting a new thread to reply to the question.

(From a non moderator):

Don't worry about it, it was a minor excursion of much more value than many of the on topic posts already present here. We are of course all tolerant. However apparently some are just more so than others. It is far from the first time that this thread has taken a small diversion to answer questions about the things mentioned.

Thanks for starting the new thread, I will subscribe to it. Your explanation of the importance of after shooting processing was very enlightening to me.

Thanks,

Ken

Thanks, Ken. It seems to have been useful info to several others, as well. Most of us (one partner of most couples, at least) seem to have more than a passing interest in photography, especially as it relates to traveling with our Airstreams! I felt the posts weren't far off topic and a number of others agree.

New camera?

Hi, my camera still works pretty good, but has been acting up. First it was electrical; Switches not doing what they are supposed to do, and now working right. Now spots in zoomed pictures; water spots from moisture or Sun spots in camera sensor? Very hard to see what you are taking a picture of and most all new cameras don't have a view finder. I will be looking for something, but it has to be pocket sized and super zoomed for me.


What was the topic about?
