I Sold My Nikon

I’ve been thinking of switching systems for a while now. A lot of my photographer friends have traded in their DSLRs for full-frame mirrorless bodies. Many of them have switched over to Sony. Last week I sold my entire Nikon gear to my local camera store, Tuttle Cameras. I sold them my D600, battery grip, charger, flash, Tokina 24-70 2.8, 50mm 1.8, an older version of the 50mm 1.8, and a 35mm 1.8. The last item is a 35mm for cropped sensor.

I don’t go out and shoot as much as I use to. My camera only gets used once or twice throughout the year. If I do take a camera to photograph something, it tends to be a little point-and-shoot. It’s a Panasonic LX10 so it’s an advanced point-and-shoot. I still want to have an interchangeable lens camera, but I’m definitely going to go mirrorless. I don’t think I’ll go full-frame. I’m really eyeing Olympus at the moment and I’m not even looking at their more advance bodies. I’m looking at their entry-level body, the OMD EM-10 Mark III.

Pre-Show Photo Adventure?

I mentioned in my last post about seeing Aladdin at 2pm on March 7. I’m starting to reconsider that decision. I’m thinking of exchanging my ticket to the evening performance instead. As of right now, there are still plenty of tickets available for that time slot.

Orange County has two museums that I’ve always wanted to visit and photograph, the Marconi Automotive Museum and the Lyon Air Museum. These two museums are only 4 miles apart. The Lyon Air Museum is 2 miles away from Segerstrom Center. So I can start my day off at Marconi, make my way down to Lyon, and end my day with a Broadway show. The problem, of course, is that both museums close rather early. Marconi closes at 4pm. They close even earlier if they’re hosting a private event. Lyon closes at 4:30. Now I’ll be left with 3 hours. Ugh. I can’t even watch Captain Marvel. Maybe I should take my laptop and edit some photos at a nearby Starbucks to pass the time.
