REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
unmoderated group rec.photo.digital.slr-systems
unmoderated group rec.photo.digital.zlr
unmoderated group rec.photo.digital.point+shoot
unmoderated group rec.photo.digital.rangefinder

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the reorganization of
the digital photography groups in the rec.photo.digital hierarchy. This
is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time. Procedural
details are below.

CHANGES:

1. Three additional newsgroups have been added to this proposal
2. Change of name from rec.photo.digital.slr to
rec.photo.digital.slr-systems
3. Digital rangefinders moved from digital SLR group to their own
newsgroup, rec.photo.digital.rangefinder

The creation of any or all of these proposed newgroups would NOT
require the removal of rec.photo.digital - RPD would continue to
stay alive as a functioning newsgroup.

Newsgroup lines:
rec.photo.digital.point+shoot Point-and-shoot digital cameras.
rec.photo.digital.rangefinder Digital rangefinder camera systems.
rec.photo.digital.slr-systems Digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera systems.
rec.photo.digital.zlr Digital cameras with fixed zoom lenses & manual controls.

RATIONALE: all groups

The growth of digital photography has caused the only Big-8 digital
photography newsgroup (rec.photo.digital) to become overwhelmed with an
enormous volume of posts. RPD was created to discuss all general
aspects of digital photography - including cameras, scanners, printers,
software, and other related topics. More and more people are using
digital cameras, and learning about photography. The modern digital
camera has evolved into a family of different flavors. Different tools
have different needs. Four new groups are proposed to offer digital
photographers technology-specific forums which allow users to
concentrate on what best meets their current needs.

RATIONALE: rec.photo.digital.slr-systems

The proposed newsgroup should be created because it will provide an open
forum for the discussion of digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera
systems, separate from film SLR cameras and non-SLR digital cameras.
Digital SLR photography is growing at an amazing rate. It is time to
create a Big-8 newsgroup for digital SLR enthusiasts. Rec.photo.digital
was created before the digital photography revolution peaked. At that
time, digital SLR camera systems were not easily obtainable by the
average person, due to high cost and limited availability. Due to
advances in the past year alone by some of the major camera
manufacturers, a person can find digital SLR camera equipment for sale
at almost every shopping mall, strip mall, or electronics store on
earth, at very reasonable prices.

RATIONALE: rec.photo.digital.zlr

The proposed newsgroup should be created because it will provide an open
forum for the discussion of high-end digital cameras with zoom lenses
and full manual controls, accessories for those cameras, and using those
cameras, separate from digital SLR cameras, digital rangefinders and
digital point-and-shoot cameras. These cameras are frequently referred
to as digital ZLR (zoom lens reflex) cameras or SLR-like digital
cameras, and typically have an SLR-like appearance due to the bulk of
the lens rather than the relatively more compact shape of most
point-and-shoot cameras. The digital ZLR is emerging as the camera of
choice for many people that have graduated from basic point-and-shoot
digital cameras, but don't need the added bulk and weight of a
comparably equipped digital SLR.

RATIONALE: rec.photo.digital.point+shoot

The proposed newsgroup should be created because it will provide an open
forum for the discussion of point-and-shoot digital cameras, accessories
for those cameras, and using those cameras, separate from digital SLR,
digital ZLR, and digital rangefinder cameras. Point-and-shoot digicams
are more popular then ever. Image quality from these generally compact
cameras is beginning to rival that of their larger digital SLR and
digital ZLR cousins. It makes sense to create a new newsgroup for the
largest segment of the digital camera population: the point-and-shoot
digicams.

RATIONALE: rec.photo.digital.rangefinder

The proposed newsgroup should be created because it will provide an open
forum for the discussion of digital rangefinder cameras, lenses and
accessories for those cameras, and using those cameras, separate from
digital SLR, digital ZLR, and digital point-and shoot cameras. Digital
rangefinders are currently in development by camera manufacturers such
as Leica, Voigtlander, Contax, and Epson. Upon availability, these
digital bodies will offer a viable digital solution for owners of Leica,
Zeiss, Voigtlander and other quality lenses for rangefinders. There is
already a good level of enthusiasm and discussion surrounding this
unique category of digital cameras.

CHARTER: rec.photo.digital.slr-systems

This newsgroup, rec.photo.digital.slr-systems, is an open forum for the
discussion of digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera systems.

These systems consist of:

-Digital SLR (DSLR) camera bodies with mounts for detachable lenses
-Lenses for those cameras

Additional On-Topic Discussion:

-Discussion of any relevant accessories for those camera systems,
including but not limited to: external flash units, memory cards,
microdrives, lens filters/hoods, camera bags/cases, DSLR
camera/lens/accessory maintenance, tripods and monopods
-Photography techniques, as long as the discussion remains within the
context of DSLR photography
-Image post-processing, as long as the discussion remains within the
context of DSLR photography
-Posting links to personal photo galleries or images, as long as the
discussion remains within the context of DSLR photography
-Discussion of digital backs for film SLR bodies

What Is Considered Off-Topic:

-Discussion of pure film cameras
-Discussion of digital point-and-shoot, ZLR, rangefinder, or any other
non-SLR digital cameras
-Discussion of any cameras with non-detachable lenses
-Discussion of digital rangefinders
-Discussion of scanners
-Discussion of printers
-Posting links to personal photo galleries or images, not in the context
of DSLR photography

Posting off-topic should be kept to a minimum. All off-topic posts
should be prefixed with [OT] or another easily-identifiable prefix in
the subject line. If a segment of any on-topic thread ever becomes
clearly off-topic, it is the duty of those individuals posting to change
the subject line to reflect the off-topic change.

Debating the pros and cons of digital photography vs. film photography
is off-topic. Please be polite and try to not steer any conversations in
that direction. In the event that any segment of any on-topic thread
ever becomes clearly off-topic by debating the pros and cons of digital
photography vs. film photography, it is the duty of those individuals
posting to change the subject line to reflect the off-topic change.

What Is Considered Inappropriate:

- Crossposting to any other newsgroup except where the post is of direct
relevance to each group in the crosspost

What Is Not Permitted:

-Posts from mail2news gateways and/or anonymous remailers
-Flame wars (comparisons between different digital SLR brands or systems
are permitted as long as they do not degenerate into personal flames)
-Signatures with more than 4 lines

-Personal attacks
-Binary postings (i.e. non text postings) other than PGP and small
binary signatures
-Commercial advertisements:

This newsgroup explicitly prohibits the posting of advertisements of any
kind, whether personal, private or commercial, as well as all other
promotional material, whether or not it is in any way related to
photography.

Auction announcements (Ebay.com and others) are prohibited.

Posting links to commercial websites with the sole intention of
promoting those sites is not permitted; links to commercial websites may
be posted in the context of answering a specific question.

All postings made to this group should conform to existing Usenet
guidelines (see news.announce.newusers for guideline documents).

When posting on rec.photo.digital.slr-systems, please use standard
Usenet netiquette. Treat other posters with courtesy and follow standard
conventions when replying to posts. Please trim the posts you reply to,
retaining only the significant portions in your follow up. Preserve

PROCEDURE:

This is a request for discussion, not a call for votes. In this phase
of the process, any potential problems with the proposed newsgroups
should be raised and resolved. The discussion period will continue for
a minimum of 21 days (starting from when the first RFD for this proposal
is posted to news.announce.newgroups), after which a Call For Votes
(CFV) will be posted by a neutral vote taker. Please do not attempt to
vote until this happens.

All discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.

This RFD attempts to comply fully with the Usenet newsgroup creation
guidelines outlined in "How to Create a New Usenet Newsgroup" and "How
to Format and Submit a New Group Proposal". Please refer to these
documents (available in news.announce.newgroups) if you have any
questions about the process.

DISTRIBUTION:

This RFD has been posted to the following newsgroups:

news.groups,

Hi Everyone. I would like to thank David, Bill, Rose, and Alexis for
joining the proponent team. As many of you already know David and Bill
submitted a proposal for the ZLR group. Alexis submitted a proposal for
an ultra-compact digital camera group - this was a surprise to Alan and
me. Todd and the good people of the NAN moderation team decided that it
would be best if we merged all three of these proposed groups into a
single RFD. Fortunately, we were able to collaborate and make that
happen.

The ultra-compact proposal seemed a bit too narrow - cameras in this RFD
are categorized by ability, not size. Alexis agreed to reshape her group
idea around all point-and-shoot-only digital cameras - regardless of
physical size.

The name of the digital SLR systems group was changed to include the
term "slr-systems" in the newsgroup name. This specifies that the
newsgroup is for discussion of digital SLR systems - digital SLR bodies
with mounts for exchangeable lenses WITH NO EXCEPTIONS. Rangefinders
were removed from the DSLR systems group - thus the birth of the
rangefinder group, which was originally suggested in e-mails by Rose
(owner of a Leica M6).

Digital reflex cameras and non-reflex cameras with non-removable zoom
lenses are covered by the ZLR newsgroup - I strongly suspect that this
group might be the busiest of all four, if passed. ZLRs are excellent
cameras, and there are enough users to warrant their own newsgroup. I
strongly believe that all four of these newsgroups will flourish, if
passed.

With the proposal of these four newsgroups, every digital camera is at
home in one of them. Each group would provide a Big-8 home for different
flavors of real digital cameras - all of which are capable of giving
excellent image quality in many situations.

I would also like to thank everyone who contributed to the RFD process,
whether in the news.groups discussion, or via e-mail. I welcome your
feedback.

I do not agree with this for two reasons...
1. an SLR does not require a lens to be removable. it can be fixed.
2. I feel the group should be moderated.

once those are done, I will vote for it when the CFD is called.

However, I propose another group which most of teh membership would prefer to
join, which is RPD.canon.slr and which would be moderated.
If you need a proponent for it, I would take it. I have not gone thru the
creation of a rec. group in 10 yrs or more but I would certainly think that most
people on RPD would rather be on a Canon slr list and would like for it to be
moderated and would like the rules loosened to include discussions on aspects
related to the "systems" as the recently created term has been used. iow
discussions on CF, storage, printers, etc. having to do with the Canon dSLR.

fwiw

Moderation will cause a newsgroup to be DOA. If you don't believe me, go to
rec.photo.moderated.

Wow, you guys (and gals) have been busy while I've been away! The new
structure looks great too, but I do have a very slight concern about
cross posting. As the charters stand with RFD4 it would be acceptable
to make a cross post a query about something generic like memory cards
to all groups in the RPD hierarchy. Is that what we want, or do we
want a clause like "should be restricted to the RPD group and the
subgroup(s) frequented by the poster"?

Apparently not, as I'm not happy

What a joke, they call it a reorg and ignore the 2 most important groups.

I think they're planning on playing 'dodge the troll'
get enough groups, da sekret hand shake, they be in there
