So many years ago I spent some time in Tokyo living on the edge of society. It was within a group of traveling artists, one a kid from New York who was into photography. He only had a Nikon SLR and one lens. What he liked to capture was precisely the same sort of images as I see here. And I am glad to see them, to know that this much has remained unchanged from my youth.

A lot of my interpretations of Japan are influenced by how Japan is portrayed in the media when I was young. If I watch some kind of documentary on Kyoto, I can guarantee there'll be some kind of shamisen playing in the background.

I'm glad these photos bring back a sense of nostalgia for you. It's the kind of "Japan" that I grew up imagining, and I'm sure it's the same for that kid in your group as well.

Of course, there are far more modernized buildings with glass windowpanes and high tech security; I enjoy the old-school parts of Tokyo more.

I studied Japanese for 3 years (two years in high school and another year during my undergrad). I've always been fascinated by Japanese culture....but admittedly mostly the stereotypical Japanese culture that we know here in the west. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your series.

Have you had a chance to visit Japan yet? Tokyo a fascinating city with so many different aspects of the culture clashing in one place.

That experience was my third time in Japan and lasted a bit more than a month. My first was a two-day stop in 1962 when the ship taking me to Korea put in at Yokuska. Second was a couple of weeks of R&R in 1963. Finally, 1983 to 1986 I lived in the north of Japan at Misawa Air Base, where the culture was distinctly old Japan outside the influence of the military.

Oh boy. I just looked at a few sample TIFF files (Sample ZIP 1 (external link), Sample ZIP 2 (external link)) from the PhaseOne XF 100MP (external link) (it has a Sony sensor inside). I'm blown away by the amount of sharpness and detail it can capture. Open the portrait TIFF in Sample ZIP 2 (external link) and see for yourself... Sony kicking ass, as usual. :lol:

I am just now getting to open these...I looked through all of them, and the one that shows where that camera shines, is as you mentioned that portrait...that is amazing detail in that image, and to me, is exactly what a camera like that is designed for. The landscapes while nice, and the files are huge, they are not as impressive to me.

I would love to visit Japan! I'm currently researching a trip to Maui or Oahu. I'm leaning towards to Maui since I've read it is more exotic. Any recommendations on where to stay in Maui? I know that it can be quite pricey there. The trip will be this April or May.

How long you going for and is there anything in particular you want to spend time doing/seeing? If it was my first trip there and I was spending more than a week, I'd split my rentals into a couple areas so that you don't have to do too much daily driving. I'd either split the time between Kihea and Lahaina/Kaanapali areas, or between one of those and Hana. Staying in Hana lets you have enough time to really explore that part of the island, and makes the Hana drive a lot more relaxing since you're not on a time table to hit all the sights and then drive back. If you do go over to Hana, even for the day, I recommend you do the full loop through the dry side instead of doing an out-and-back along the Hana road. Ignore the warnings about 4 wheel drive. The roads are fine (mostly), and you'll be going right past some cool wineries.

Planning 7 or 8 days. Going with our 2.5 half year old so there won't be much opportunity to do the road to Hana. Well, maybe just a short stint and back. I just don't think he will do well with all the turns and the long drive.

We want to have a relaxing vacation checking out the beaches, dining, scenery, hiking, swimming, and definitely a luau. We would probably pay for our son to experience the dolphins and if we could do some whale watching, that would be great but it may be late in the year for it. Of course, I'll be there taking photos too!

I think maybe splitting our time between Kihea and Lahaina/Kaanapali areas and choosing budge accommodations for the first part and then luxury for the latter part of the trip would work nicely.

Huh? Nikon D5. Come on, get excited and pre-order that high-ISO monster!!! :p
Seriously I never expect serious photography gear to be announced at CES, so I am actually a bit shocked by Nikon's big splash. Impressive new cameras.

It is annoying to see touch-screen interaction on the new D5, because the a7 series should have had touchscreen controls from the very beginning imo.
