I’ve been reviewing cameras for nearly 5 years on mike eckman dot com, and while it’s been a lot of fun, many other vintage camera blogs have come and risen to the occasion doing basically the same thing I’ve been doing.
Casual Photophile, 35mmc, Kosmo Foto, Japan Camera Hunter, EMULSIVE, Canny Cameras, Photothinking.com, Camera Go Camera, AlexLuyck, the GAS Haus, and many many others have countless reviews of the same cameras I used to talk about.
I still like blogging, but in a bit of an identity crisis, I decided to make a change and write about something else I am very passionate about, which is HEAVY METAL MUSIC!
As a life long metal head, I have many decades worth of vinyl records, CDs, and hell, even a few cassettes that I can talk about on a weekly basis.
If you liked my blend of TL;DR camera reviews, you’re going to love 5000+ words on what I think about the direction Metallica has gone in recent years!
Up the Irons!
Edit: 4/2/2019 For those of you who missed the joke, yesterday I “rebranded” the site as switching to a heavy metal music review site.
Many people who have only discovered this site in recent years likely don’t know, but when mike eckman dot com was formed in 2012, it was just a random blog for all of my personal interests, not just cameras. I used to post my thoughts on music and other things back then, so I took two very old posts and quickly edited them to make them look new and sent them out to social media.
I changed my Facebook page for this site to reflect some metal album covers, and even created a heavy metal themed slider and logo for the site. For those who missed it. This is what the main landing page for the site looked like yesterday.
Thanks to everyone for the fun comments, both in this thread and on Facebook. I’m not going away any time soon, so hopefully you can continue to enjoy many future camera and photography related posts!
