I tweak about in PS to get my B&Ws, but they always look more like 'Ilford HP5' rather than 'Kodak Tri-X'. The latter gave fantastic tones when exposed / processed / printed well.

( I've just realised how to stop the attached images from not fitting the page - after two years - duh ! )I haven't. How to you get them to fit the page?
Regarding size and appearance, a DSLR is a DSLR regardless of whether it has a built-in vertical grip. Part of the OP's concern is with appearance/safety. There is no such thing as an inconspicuous DSLR other than maybe, just maybe the SL1 (with a pancake).
X100s also satisfies this need as it just looks like an old rangefinder that is much smaller than any existing DSLR today.
X100s. Full feature set, great IQ, compact, no extras needed on the go other than a couple batteries.
A lot of people seem to have difficulty grasping this concept. Including some who think they know better in this thread. Its shown quite well in this article.
Note that no where in the luminous landscape article did the guy refer to subject isolation.
DOF and subject isolation (or background blur - or do you mean something else?) are not necessarily the same.
Taking pictures with a short focal length and short subject distance vs with a long focal length and longer subject distance (for the same framing, using the same camera and aperture) results in the same dof, but the latter will give you a much blurrier background.
How about - "For the same magnification of the area in focus (different lenses, different distances), longer focal length at the same aperture will give you same DoF and more background magnification".
Yes. Or, in simple statements, which I can remember easier :
The longer the lens at the same f, the more blur, but same dof.
The smaller the f at the same mm, the more blur, and less dof.
(assuming the same framing)
It's a tough job, but somebody has to separate a fool from her money ... Thanks Louis!
I think one of my favourites, we had planned this shot the day before, the Male Leopard was mating so we knew he would be in the area late at night, not hunting, moving slowly as his work was cut out for him mating about every 5 minutes (tough guys these male Leopards), light was from another vehicle placed with it's headlights on the Animal.
We were able to set up quite close to the Animal without spooking it, allowing a series of Images, of which I think this was the best.
