Default To delpeoples: altrettanto

Ciao Cheeky Girl, Thanks for the compliments (at least I think they were) and the good wishes, altrettanto. I have a camera made by people who have long & well deserved reputation for making the best cameras in the world, why would I want to buy a camera made by the best photocopier manufacturer in the world
Take care, best wishes.
Un abbraccione
Santo (il monello piu grande)

Talking Ciao caro Monello

Sei veramente forte caro amico.

Ma, pensavo che la Canon Powershot 570 era da Canon?

Un abbraccione e quando vincero la lotteria ti compro' una bella Canon

Default Nikon Vs Canon

Found this amusing piece on the 'shutterfinger' website:

"What Your Choice of Camera Says About You
Just as the clothes you choose to wear, the food you like to eat, and the people you associate with say something about you, so does the camera system you buy into. The following observations are based on close association with the various groups of camera owners and from having belonged to each group at one time or another. Those who belong to the “lacking any sense of humor” or “offended at the drop of a hat” groups are strongly advised to read no further.

Canon owners
You appreciate the benefits of owning a camera system that leads in cutting-edge digital imaging technology and that offers a wealth of body, lens, and accessory options for every level of photographer, from lowly consumer to top professional. You will switch to Nikon.

Nikon owners
You appreciate the benefits of owning a camera system that leads in cutting-edge digital imaging technology and that offers a wealth of body, lens, and accessory options for every level of photographer, from lowly consumer to top professional. You will switch to Canon.

Sony owners
You believe that Sony’s innovations in consumer electronics and video technology, its leadership in digital imaging chip production, its in-body image stabilization, and its use of Zeiss optics results in a unique design synergy and products of exceptional value—because that’s what it says in the product literature. You also believe in astrology, UFOs and the Easter Bunny.

Pentax owners
You’re the sort of person who would buy a $1500 DSLR body so your stash of thread-mount, K-mount and M-mount lenses from decades ago (collectively worth $75.00 at a flea market or yard sale) won’t go to waste; either that, or you’ve never heard of a Spotmatic, Pentax LX or Takumar, you just think you look cool sporting a day-glo red camera that takes real pictures. You think people are laughing with you, not at you.

Olympus owners
You’re the sort of person who buys North Korean beer, Peruvian underwear, and French cars, not because you actually like them but because no one else does. When people question your choice of camera system you respond that Olympus images have a certain “soul” and that photographs are what matter, not the camera. You have no friends.

Leica owners
You know that no other camera other than a Hasselblad gains as much instant respect among the cognoscenti as a Leica. Although this relieves the pressure of demonstrating actual photographic prowess, it increases the need to be familiar with the subtle differences in visual signature between an Elmar, Elmarit, Summitar, Summicron, and Summilux. You are either stinking rich, living in your mother’s basement, or one lens purchase away from a divorce.

Panasonic, Fuji, and Samsung owners should be relieved rather than offended that they were not included. Comments are welcome as long as they are civil. Extra points will be given for self-deprecation."

Default That's interesting

Hi Chris, thanks for that, interesting & entertaining, now this is what I got out of that, we would all love a Hasselblad and/or a Leica, since most of us cant afford either we settle for either a Nikon that is made by camera specialists or a Canon made by photocopier specialist but in pursuit of better images we eventually decide that the other brand is better, even if a bad tradesman always blames his tools. I hope Lisa (the delicate one)wins the lottery soon, I'm hangen out for a new Canon 5DMkII & a lens of my choice .
Thanks
Santo

Smile Monelli, Canon, Nikon & Fuji

Hi Chris and Santo

Chris this is hilarious - and so true I know one day I'll end up defecting to the Dark Side (Nikon) but don't tell Santo

Have a happy evening, I hope you're both so full of turkey and ham you can't move.

Un abbraccio
Lisa
