It was a nice summer day here in NYC, on the corner of Broadway and Houston. I only spent an hour or so in the city, and counted six tourists with new Leicas. The economy is picking up!

Lightroom only.

Another from Fair Isle in Shetland. There's a nice B&B in the lighthouse where we stayed for three nights.

Most of Fair Isle can't be reached by car, so we walked a lot the three days we were here. On the tallest hill we found a radar station from WWII which has been broken down by rain and winds...

Thank you! Fair Isle was wonderful, my favorite part of the Shetland trip. Even though we only spent 3 days (out of 14) there that's where I took almost half of my photos.

Helena, what's your camera setup look like now and what's your usage between them?

Like a lot of us, I can't keep track of what you're using. I know you have/had an RX1, a X-A1, and probably some others, Just interested on seeing what's keeping you busy lately.

Somehow I have ended up with three cameras..:
-RX1 has the best file quality, but I don't enjoy using it and often struggle with the colors, mainly greens and skin tones. I should sell it, but it has several issues so it needs to be serviced first and I haven't gotten around to that yet. Also, I'm reluctant to give up my only FF camera.
-Fuji X-A1 with 14mm and 50-230mm. Since it can do things the others can't I'll keep it until I find something that can replace both it and RX1.
-GR. My favorite and most used.

For local hiking I just take GR, sometimes with the GW-3 wide angle converter. For photo walks and urban traveling I add RX1, and for car trips also the Fuji. Works very well.

After advice from others I brought it all to Shetland (in total it only weighs about the same as 5D + ZE 35/1.4 that I had before - that's crazy!). I took about 300 photos. 55% with GR, 30% with Fuji 50-230 and 15% with RX1. In the end I only kept 8 photos from RX1, so it could have stayed at home. Same with the Fuji 14mm. Great lens, but I ended up doing panoramas with GR instead.

Sometimes I find it tough when I try to look at the number of keepers a given camera provides. Likewise, when I had my RX1, I wouldn't use it for all that many shots, but it did provide a few shots that had a very unique and lovely look which few if any other cameras can provide.

On one hand, I like a camera that gives me a high overall keeper rate, but sometimes those keepers are just "okay". Its hard to compare that with another camera that maybe only gave me a few shots I liked, but, if one of two of those shots are just magical, then that sometimes seems makes it seem worth it.

I found with m4/3 for example, that it was probably the most versatile overall system, and gave me the far highest number of keepers, due to that versatility and amazing AF etc, but, I wouldn't get anything that blew me away as far as overall look goes. I'd have plenty of decent shots, but few if any "wow" shots.

My RX1 often had annoying slow AF, otherwise felt limited with focal length etc, but when everything came together just right, the files were beautiful.

Hard to justify the expense and effort of carrying a camera just for a handful of shots though

Welcome back unravel! I have always admired your street photography.

millsart, I agree with every word you wrote and that last line is exactly what I struggle with. I cringe when I think about how much I paid for RX1 and how seldom I use it. On the other hand; it has produced some of my favorite photos. Anyway, it's already paid for and I have had it for 19 months, so I won't sell it until I'm 100% sure that that is what I want to do.

Of course everyone's definition of keepers is different.

One persons handful of " keepers" might be gallery wall worthy. While another' persons definition of "wow" shots may be only wow for them.

It's all in perspective.

Just saying

Quite true its all totally subjective. Maybe I have shots on my wall that someone else would of put straight into the recycle bin.

In the end though, unless we are shooting for a client, we really only have to please ourselves, and unless your pulling a Ken Rockwell and getting Paypal donations to support your growing family lol, it is ourselves also footing the bill.

To that end, it doesn't really matter if we are using a camera that many forum members may deem "inferior" to other options, nor does it really make sense to foot the expense of certain gear just because of how great many people think it is.

Just all comes down to pleasing ourselves first and foremost, and doing it in a way that our own budgets can accommodate.

As luck would have it, generally when we are pleased with our gear, no matter what it is, we produce our best work. As such, sometimes we can "downgrade" our kit, into something that on paper may be less impressive, but the net result is more photographic output and more enjoyment from it.

When I had my Leica M9 kit for example, I often didn't get that much enjoy because I was always too aware of the fact I had about $12,000 in my shoulder bag. It was a great tool, but I don't know if I really enjoyed it that much all the time.
