The two Fuji’s. I’ve been downsizing and focusing my camera collection lately and these are now two of the primaries. Fuji X-Pro2 and G690BL

Thinking about building a minimal raw photos editor, for when Darktable/Lightroom is just too much (most of the time)

Considering building it in rust with an ImageMagick wrapper. Any tips for libraries to handle raw files (fuji in particular) or alternatives to imagemagick?

That feeling when your photo gets featured on the foma international Instagram

I'd eventually like to get a fuji X-Pro camera for the OVF, but I havent been able to figure out how minimal the electronic portion of the OVF can get, and the main problem of not being able to focus lenses purely through the OVF without electronic assistance.

I have been shooting exclusively on my Nikon F3 lately, with a 50mm series-e lens. I have a 28mm series-e coming as well. My plan will be to use the nikon lenses with my viltrox speed booster on this digital camera. Carrying only the 27mm fuji, nikon lenses and both bodies for the majority of my shooting.

Some explanation:
I've been feeling pretty detached from photography lately and have been looking for new ways to connect with it. I came across the Leica M-D typ 262 recently, which is basically a film camera with a digital sensor instead of film, no menus, no display, no settings. Only a rangefinder OVF and a meter reading. My X-E2 here has an EVF but I wanted to get as close as I could. No back display, no reviewing images in the EVF.

My DIY Leica M-D 262 (there’s cardboard over the display, don’t worry)

Does anyone here know anything about digital image sensors of any variety? I'm interested in building a digital back for my MF film camera and I need a dev board for testing.

Any tips for creating a minimal version of MacOS? I have an older macbook that I want to use primarily as a minimal writing/dev machine. There will likely be some iOS dev, so Linux wont work in this case. It's also a relatively small 256gb HDD so dual booting isn't ideal.

Thinking that the Essential PH-1 at $120 new is a pretty good buy.

Anyone have any recommendations for used Android phones under $200? Want to run google-less f-droid device.

They took down some scaffolding on my flat block recently, and I took it as an opportunity to do some photography out of the window :)
