Where's your shot of the bird in front of the lens, would like to see it. Good capture.

And I might add she might be the NEX best thing. I feel a magnetic attraction to her lovely right hand :-)

Thanks guys. I did speak with her and told her simply to forget that shooting from the hip stuff and simply point and shoot. She then took my picture ;-)

I greatly dislike shooting from the hip. she is carrying a Nex-5? I wonder how she enjoyed using such an oddly balanced camera.

I'm with John Wayne this one time. I really miss the waist level finder. Found it much easier for taking portraits because people are less intimidated. Maybe it's just nostalgia.

Amusing thread... I've dug some out.








(I am the wrong side of the camera in that one.)

I had been campaigning for Pentax to put out an interchangeable finder DSLR ala the LX for quite some time for this very reason. I instead purchased the most logical body I could think of at the time for the job: a nikon F. a great camera with waist level finder, but just too big and not discrete. but I agree on the waist level finder completely. it changes the whole dynamic of photographing people when you don’t have to literally ‘point’ the camera at them in the same fashion. the downside is of course that these finders can be difficult to learn to use efficiently, and have a number of downsides compared to an eye level pentaprism finder.

I think the light from the view screen was how I got an AF lock.

Alas, I'm not alone ! There will come the day my K100D will have to go another mod and who knows it could be the final surgery. My fave (and already at hand) is this waist level finder and another funky copy at hand looks like this (source).

Both have a pivotable loupe on top of the lightwell. I don't mind the learning and the downsides, I even love the dust specs in the loupe view.
