I got a new camera Nikon D3200 and I entered two challenges. They didn't do very well. I suck.

it's true, if you can't take better pictures with a new camera you do suck. I haven't gotten a personal best since I got the 5D Mark2, I am a loser.....

MY personal best was shot with the 20D in 2006: TWO FF bodies and 6 years later, I still can't beat it... Major suckage!

ETA: Make that 5 of my top 9 are with the 20D!!!

ROFL, you made me go look, and what I found was ugly! Every one of my top 5 (all of my meager ribbon count) were shot with the 10D! Six of my top 10 were shot with the 10D, one with the Nikon 995 (!) and the remaining three with the 5D.
On the positive side, I broke into my top 10 twice in July... there's hope for me yet!

It's a good case study for a couple things:

1: Statistics can be twisted to prove anything (In this case, that 10D and 20D are better cameras than FF)

2: The voting on DPC has gotten a LOT tougher...

My PB was shot just shy of four years ago, with my old D70s.

I do at least have four cameras in my Top 5.

Four of my top 5 have been shot with the newer K-R. I suck just a little less than I used to.

Sorry you're frustrated, 21_N.gif Jere2201. Forget about the scores for a while and just take some time to learn your new camera and have some fun shooting. Keep working at it and things will come around.

I can do better than that, my top 3 we're shot with the Rebel 300D (which I believe was the first digital rebel? you prob know off the top of your head)

Yup. It was marketed as the "300D", the "Digital Rebel" and the "Kiss", depending on where it was sold.

i thought the "Kiss" was the Rebel XS or 1000D in Japan.

They resurrected the name. Also, I think maybe it was originally "Digital Kiss" on the 300D...

I'm really trying to put a S10 shot into my top ten, but that's gonna be a real challenge I think...

Funny enough, as Bear mentioned, standards here have risen quite a bit - interestingly my Metal on Metal entry will be the first appearance of the S10 in a challenge in almost 8 years - I think it should provide a pretty solid metric on just how much things have changed in that time.

As for my top ten? Yeah, I use my 50D too much. Every one of my top ten is the 50D except for #5 and #6 which are S95 shots.

4 of my top 5 are with my 5d mk1, have to check my 20d think that's had a 6+ though
10/01/2012 03:06:48 PM · #18
i guess i'm the only one knows how to properly use their gear?
10/01/2012 03:08:50 PM · #19
Reality for me was jan to feb we were off work a lot due to weather do I had a lot of free time and most my top 5 and ribbon are fromnthatbtime when I had days not minutes for challenges.

Heh... Do you even use the MkII? Certainly can't tell from your high scoring images. ;)
