Welcome to the kick-ass-oldie-but-goodie-camera-club! We're happy to have you here. Sorry about the mess - we're doing some construction work.

This club is for people with an old top-of-the-line camera, digital and non-digital, but visitors are just as welcome.

The purpose of this club is to gather all the experiences and all the pros and cons of using and owning an outdated top-of-the-line camera, so that people considering buying one can get some first-hand feedback and hopefully get their questions answered. Furthermore, the owners of old mighty digitals are encouraged to write reviews of their cameras in the User Reviews-section of the forum, compare it to other more modern cameras they have used (if possible), and link to their reviews in this club. This way people considering either a kick-ass-oldie-but-goodie-camera or a similar priced new DSLR can compare old might to new technology.

So far, the members of the club has been divided into two categories; The oldie-but-awesomie for people with kick-ass cameras that can take on everything you throw at them, and the oldie-but-goodie for people with top-of-the-line cameras older than 25 years.

Members of oldie-but-awesomie category:
Orsan Kart - owner of a Canon EOS 1
logic_nguyen - owner of a Nikon D2h and a Nikon F3
Citruspers - owner of a Nikon D2h (review) and vice president of this category
esbenlp - owner of a Canon EOS 1D Mark II (review)
jeremy1302 - owner of a Nikon F3 and a Nikon F5
darragh - owner of a Canon EOS 1D

Members of the oldie-but-goodie category:
kutay - owner of a Canon AE-1P and a Minolta X-700
Adi Zulhusni MarkII - owner of a Canon A-1
pmateiro - owner of a Canon AE-1
agun - owner of a Kodak Colorsnap 35 Model 1
Ruben123 - owner of a Minolta XG-1 and a Ricoh 35 ZF
Jaemok - owner of a Canon AE-1
gclark03 - owner of a Canon FTb and a Nikon N90s
Maj.Homer - owner of a Nikon FE-3 and a Yaschica A

Members out of category:
JakeOConnell - owner of a Canon EOS 650

Reviews by old members:
Review of 5D

As these are just my personal thoughts on what this club should be about and as there are other members of this club, this introductory welcome is subject to change over time while the club gets settled in and shaped into a finer less-edgy structure.

We hope you enjoy your stay!

Welcome to the club Orsan! You are of course most welcome and it is not only about digital. My initial idea about this club was just to help people choosing between an older digital top-of-the-line camera and a new similar priced DSLR.

Hmm... how old and how "top line" will you go? As mentioned elsewhere, I got not long ago a 5D mk1.

Hey popo,

In my opinion, a top-of-the-line model is a flagship model but that is just my opinion. Others might count the 5D in as a candidate for the club. If the others say it's okay, you are more than welcome to join.

I don't want to be the first old-camera snob, but I, too, think the 5D falls more in the consumer/prosumer spec, than into the pro spec.

Canon's pro lines are the 1D(s)'s right? The 5D is kind of comparable to the 7D in terms of target audience?

5D comes under Canon Professional Network (CPN) and services

http://cpn.canon-europe.com/content/index.do

So "IS" regarded as a professional body!!

As well as the 40D and 30D, and G9, G10, G11 :roll:
Yes, it might be a more pro-body, but not a flagship like Esben said.

Maybe we can extend to non-flagship models?

Esben, can you also add me and Popo's user reviews to the topic?

Non-flagship professional models are accepted in this club from hereon (except xxD's and models from the G-series), so I hereby welcome popo, JakeOConnell and kutay to the club!

Soo...do we have any goals for this club, except feeling awesome, and proving older cameras can still be used today?

Total world domination maybe?
