Hi, haven't posted on the forums in a while - but I've been admiring your photos and just bought a 645Z with the D-FA55 and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm still getting used to the camera - taking shots of anything I can until I get back into some landscape work. Here's some images.

State of the camera market.....

If cameras were about "art" I'd agree that there would be an on-going perpetual market for cameras. But they aren't and never have been. Cameras are gadgets, and the rise and fall of their popularity is largely based on their appeal to gadget hunters.

I've had this conversation with an executive of a large camera retailer. Cameras surged in popularity in the 60s because of the mass market appeal of Japanese SLRs as "high tech". In the late 80's and early 90's camera sales tanked because
computers were the new gadget craze. It wasn't until the digital era that they got back their spark as a must have gadget.

The effect was amplified by social media sites promoting "sharing your images" with your friends. Unfortunately, that all dissolved when Instagram came along.

Now, it's smartphones, tablets and 3D printers that dominate the gadget market. Instagram is far more popular with consumers than Flickr because it combines both social media, and decent imagery from a camera you carry with you. SLR Cameras are out of fashion, bulky, impossible to take to a concert, useless for sharing instant images of your kale chips with your mates. For 90% of the photographers out there - that's what they do - that's all they want a camera to do.

Yes, there are those of us addicted to SLR photography, but we are a dying breed. Manufacturers are pretty slow on the uptake - but they will need to add sharing features if they want to survive. Cameras like the X100 and GR are probably the right way forward, something you can pocket or drop in your bag. But, like the smartphone, it will probably need to be a multipurpose device to make significant sales.

Love the details in this shot Lightbulb. I'm not a pro. Hard to be a pro taking concert shots in Australia. There's only room for a couple of pros in each state. But I love live music and photography so I do it whenever I can.

The Blasko concert sounded like a very tough gig Sandy. Good to see you got something good there. Hermitude went off big time. Keep an eye on the crowd at the start of the numbers as they really get into it early each song.

RAW file transfer to tablet in the field

The pro Eye-Fi cards transfer raw files.



Probably true for most tablets, but not the full Windows (Win 7, Win 8 Pro) tablets. My tablet is a Samsung Series 7 tablet. It has Win 8 Pro (I upgraded from Win 7), a full sized powered USB port, and runs Lightroom 4 without issue. I can use my standard workflow and then connect to my phone's or home's WiFi network to upload to the web. Battery life is around 3 hours for photo editing use.

Hmm, interesting. The rest of us didn't have that problem. I have tested saving the raw image from the buffer after taking an hdr sequence and then repeating. Works fine.
