I still love my Canon RT but it's a film camera.

Ok, calling the 5D2 and 6D old..... where's that rolling eyes emoji


Old is flash cubes, 120 film, 110 film, pinhole cameras, lol
The 5D mark II will be 10 years old this year. Even in film SLR terms, that's pretty old. The Canon A cameras were made obsolete in less than that.

Funnily enough my film camera is newer.

SLR terms, is that like dog years? I know Mother In Law years....  1 Day = 4.
EOS 5D3, EOS M5, some lenses

My early digital cameras aren't getting any use (or have been given away).

I do wish that I had kept my Minolta XD-11.  Focus was as good as your eye allowed, and it never ran out of memory.  It had aperture and shutter priority modes, which was amazing for the time.  Sensor noise was high when you pushed 400 Ektachrome to 1600, but at reasonable ISO levels life was good.

Take that, poster who referred to 2017 (4 months ago) as old!

I occasionally pull out my old Kodak Retina and it still takes sharp images.  I really miss my "baby" rollei, the 4x4 that took 127 film for super slides.  Lens wasn't fast, setup wasn't either, but oh what great vacation slides.  Now
it just sits behind glass in a cabinet I have reserved for old - but not retired - film cameras.

I will always love the beautiful renderign and clarity from the old T2i sensor. It's just a beautiful thing.

Or the sharpness of my Xsi.

What i dont miss/love:

  • 6D terrible focus system
  • 6D not sharp sensor

Sharpness of a photograph have more to do with lens & skills....
