CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

Such a pretty car...from a time when cars were different every year and you could tell the year from the front or the back...

HIGH dollar ride there (rare)...beautiful...I believe they were available in white or blue only.

Ive been looking at the Pentax rigs (Q7 and K1) for a little bit here lately...


I put some seat covers and a carpet in a pretty cool 1970 Pontiac last week...not as cool as the TA but pretty damn close.

Ty boys. Like I said the goat is really cool but the bird is rarer than hens teeth. Fast mofos too...

I saw a white 73 SD car on a used car lot for 6 grand in 86. Go google what they go for now. Small window F bodies are like no meter film cameras...no frills...sexy...bossy.

The goat is a recently purchased Cali car now in IT..34 grand.

Saying TA makes me think of Tom. I once asked him how to shoot cars. He said 35 or 50 and crouch.

My parents bought the Pontiac Le Mans in 1969...if only they had gone a slightly different direction...

Loved the Q. Small, a great street shooter. If it only had a decent sized sensor.
