This image is another one from the archives, taken way back in 2010 at John Forrest National Park up in the beautiful Perth Hills.
Green and Gold, John Forrest National Park, Mundaring (YPW2.19-V1-TH1)
The photo was taken outside the John Forrest Tavern where a group of roos we’re lazing about under the cover of the trees & bushes.
This guy obviously got a bit nosy about me taking so many photos so he stuck his head around the blanket of golden leaves hanging down from one of the trees and gave me a perfect view with those gorgeous gold & green colours from the late afternoon sun 🙂
First and foremost I have to admit that I’m a Canon guy (well mostly)!
I’ve owned Canon DSLR’s since 2003 when the DSLR became an acceptable replacement for the old 35mm SLR and Nikon were simply not in the picture then.
OK, so I did sell my old Nikon SLR + lenses when I switched to digital (& became a professional photog) so there is some history there between myself & Nikon. Plus I will admin that Nikon are arguably slightly ahead of Canon right now, but don’t tell anyone I said that 😉
All that aside I was very slightly amazed at the announcement of Nikon to make a retro styled DLSR complete with knobs, dials & angular styling in the form of the Nikon DF, lets face it even my old F-601 looks modern in comparison 🙂
Anyway, the real reason for this post is not to start up a Canon v Nikon argument but to share with you a very amusing video review I came across from Lee Morris at fstoppers.com.
Lee originally posted an article titled “The Nikon Df Represents Everything Wrong With Photography” which received over 300 comments, many of which were slightly angry at his opinion and this video was his response.
