It happened yesterday. I’ve been in a camera store. I’ve done it. I went digital.
Geez, I can see you frowning and thinking: Is that film guy with his fantastic equipment finally going nuts?
Yup, I’m totally mad.
No, it’s not related to the bad news about Kodak USA.
It just happened.
In a matter of a few seconds I’ve made up my mind.
And now I am the proud owner of a superhyper digital Nikon. OK, I didn’t read the manual, not yet. I know how it should work, and that it will work, but don’t ask me about details. Maybe in a week or month I will know more.
Does it challenge my analog cameras? Nope. It’s a different world. Totally different. Am I going to sell my analog equipment now? Yes and no, I still have to make up my mind on that part of my plan (remember, I wanted to sell everything to step up to even larger format in LF?).
Well, I guess that you really want to know which hell of a camera monster I’ve finally put into my equipment bag. The Nikon 3Dx? The 4D? The 800D?
Some sample images:

Cozy Corner (evening sun on the terrace in winter)
Wisdom: Anybody can buy a monster camera. Not anybody is a photographer. Any good photographer can ‘make’ the photograph for the title of ‘Time’ or ‘Stern’ or ‘Vogue’ even with a simple camera.
OK, to cut the long story short: This is it.
