one guy at work loves his Pen, another guy loves his Fujifilm, and they both seem like decent to good photogs. I'd say I probably can't go wrong with either, but I'm leaning Fujifilm. apparently the images are better, larger format. the plus side to the Pen over the FujiFilm is you can change lenses. gonna trade my old Nikon d90 in. Hopefully I can get something, anything for it.

oddly enough this guy uses both cameras.

he's kinda got a good style that's kinda derivative of Alex Webb.

$1000 or so is a lot of money for a one-trick pony. I would lean Olympus.

yeah, fun use of studio lighting on a lot of his family pics. I kinda suspect the street shots are staged too but as long as their cool, I'm cool.

cleaning out my mom's basement I found a quart bottle still full with either Dektol or Microdol-X. Couldn't tell with a sniff test after ~35 years. And now I'm surprised to find that they're still making Dektol, although Microdol-X seems to have been discontinued.

https://flic.kr/s/aHskjiDasu Woodside Park Picnic, June 2015 Silver Spring Maryland Best shots.

I do not shoot as much as I used to, this was my last event. Looking forward to shooting more as I recover from heart surgery.

Let's see anyone top that.

I use a Nikon D 90 nowadays, and before that an F3 since my minolta 201 got replaced in 1985.

Cool pic, RP. I was planning to wait up to see the moon last night but I just couldn't make it.

I am finally going to jump into the dSLR market. I am not looking to go too crazy $$$-wise so have narrowed my search to the Nikon d5600 and the Canon T7i. Anybody use either of these? I am leaning slightly toward the Canon as I expect to use this for sports video a good deal of the time but am very much on the fence (especially since the Canon is $100+ more). Not sure the difference in video quality is worth the extra $$$. May rather spend that cash on a zoom lens.

Did you ever pick a model? I'm still on my original DSLR (T2i) so I can't really comment on either.

The main thing I miss from "the good old days" is manual focus thru a split prism. As I consider an upgrade do any models at any price point offer it or some aid for manual focus?

All DSLRs still offer split-prism manual focus so far as I know, though I'm not sure about any manual focus aid. Presumably they all can do live view now so you could do manual focus with that instead of the split prism.

Maybe I'm not using the right term. The image below depicts what I mean. My t2i has nothing like it.
