Just saw this today, though it's been posted in various places over the last few days. I suppose this would apply mainly to non-professional photographers, though there might be some creep into the pro market:

"Whenever people want to make fun of a stodgy old corporation that couldn’t see the future, they love referencing the camera maker Kodak. But Kodak wasn’t the only old dog taken out by the digital camera revolution: All camera companies have now fallen to the iPhone. Last year, only 9m cameras were sold, down from 122m in 2010, per tech journalist (and Gigamon founder) Om Malik.

Meanwhile, Apple moved 200m+ iPhones in 2020
While there are countless other camera-enabled smartphones, the iPhone -- which has sold 1B+ units since launching in 2007 -- clearly leads the pack.

Here’s how Malik thinks digital cameras will shake out moving forward:

·Big players: At <10m units per year, the 4 big digital camera makers (Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Sony) will be fighting over scraps. Sony is best positioned to thrive, but not as a camera maker: It supplies camera sensors to everyone, including Apple.

·Niche players: Super high-end cameras (Leica, Hasselblad, Phase One) will maintain share with pros and super-hobbyists.
As for Kodak, the company was last in the news for potential insider trading when the Trump administration awarded it $765m to make COVID-related pharmaceuticals."

I just introduced myself here and kind of scratching my head about what to talk about.  

So, I figured I would share a little about my photography journey and add some depth to my introduction.  Don't be shy say hello, I'm looking to make friends here!

I'm 31 years old and was a late bloomer to photography, which is strange because most people in my family are photographers.  The really strange part is that I was a  closet photographer for the last 2 years.  I didn't tell anyone that I was secretly learning photography because I wanted to surprise them and also, was kind of embarrassed that I didn't know the stuff.  Am I the only one who struggled with the fundamentals to photography?  Seriously what a PITA all this was.  

Actually for me, my turning point was a few YouTube channels on photography that really helped me out.  Well let me take that back, actually it was this video on "How to Learn Photography in 13 minutes": https://youtu.be/fpdxMUWF0k0 that got me to finally understand the basics.  This guy did a killer job.  (Sorry not sure how to add link here, hope I did it right)

He has another video I was going to post here, but I can't seem to find it now.  It was on lighting. Eh, it's late and I'm exhausted.  

Well my goals are to become a professional photographer one day.  Won't be this year, but who knows what the future holds for me.  Alright, I hope to meet and become friends with some of you.  If you are a newbie like me and want to learn photography, can recommend that video I posted enough, it really helped!  Oh yeah, Bryan Peterson an author I was recommended too.  "Understanding Exposure".  I just ordered that on Amazon.  I'll let you know how that book works out when it arrives.  

OK, I'm sleepy and heading to bed.  

Speak soon!

Hi everyone

I am looking on advice for getting a digital camera for my 12 year old Grandaughter. She is very into photography with her mobile phone but wants to take it further with a "proper camera". I have a canon 700D but think this is too expensive for a 12 year old. 

Any ideas on what cameras are good for getting her started (without being too expensive) would be appeciated.

Thanks in advance 
Snaphappy

Hi, I'm relatively new to photography but I'm really enjoying using my M50 with the kit lens. However, I would like to purchase a second lens for portraiture. Am I better off going for one of the sigma/Ef-m lenses or looking at getting something like the nifty fifty with an adaptor?

Homebrewing coffee can be so much fun with the right coffee grinder

I got my very first coffee grinder, a baratza virtuoso six months ago on my birthday. Being a coffee lover myself, I couldn't be happier being able to brew excellent coffee at home. You only need the right machine to enjoy such pleasure. For me, it's that Baratz electric coffee grinder that brings my brewing game to a whole new level.

➾➾➾ Important Site: [Image: 3lIrYI9.gif] What is the best coffee grinder

About Baratza company

First thing first, when it comes to coffee grinder brands, Baratza is probably known as the top brand because they make the best electric coffee grinder machines. When you pay for a Baratza product, you know you are getting high quality, simply because they are the kind of companies whose philosophy is "do one thing and do it well". And the one thing they have devoted to making is excellent coffee grinders for the home brewing market. That is why I literally screamed with joy when I unwrapped the gift box, and I saw the Baratza name. I know I've just got the best birthday gift ever!

And why I love my baratza virtuoso so much!

So far, there have been two main reasons why I enjoy grinding coffee with my baratza virtuoso so much.

The first is its ease to use and clean. You cannot know how to use it because its design is so simple: only one button to press and a time dial to twist, and there you go making your freshly ground coffee. Still, to fully understand each time dial setting, requires several tries. But believe me, it is a fun little journey.

The second thing is its consistent grinds. I was so satisfied seeing such even particle sizes in my coffee ground right from my first try. In fact, the virtuoso is made with 40mm conical burrs which help grinding coffee beans consistently. Yet again, you still have to try different settings to finally find the one that matches your favorite brewing techniques, because this baratza virtuoso grinder has up to 40 grind settings.

And I have to mention, the customer service from Baratza is absolutely excellent. They said there is a quick and easy warranty, just giving them a call and you will be guided with every step to fix any issue you may have.

What about other top coffee grinders?

Skeptical enough, you may also want to consider other coffee grinder brands. Of course, besides Baratza products, there are other popular brands that can satisfy you. As a beginner, I used to consider the breville smart grinder pro after reading so many good reviews about it. But I ended up with a baratza virtuoso and I never want to replace it with any other.

I would be so excited if I know my little story would be helpful for you on your search for the Top Rated Coffee Grinders [Image: DjipweH.gif]. It always worths doing your own research and reading some other coffee grinders reviews. Because some days you make coffee, and some days the coffee makes you, so always have the best coffee at home!.
