garyknrd: Watching this made me go pull out some old prints I made years ago. I used to get rolls of Tec pan 2415 and Konica 1600. Pull them off the roll in a changing bag and onto a large spool and Hyper the film. Pulling a vacuum on the container then cooking it. Then back onto the roll and into the camera for a nights shooting. LOL. Then back home to the bathroom for processing. I still have an old Besler 23 C around somewhere. What a mess.Makes you appreciate Digital.. But a lot of fun back then.Did any of you old timers do any of this kind of processing?
" Just about anyone who has done black and white darkroom work can do that."Right...a handful...;)
In '68, High-School photo class, we weren't allowed to touch 35mm until the second year --everything was 4x5 on a Crown Graphic --and those dodged and burnt-in 8x10s needed to be perfectly spotted, as well. We had 12 Beselers in a huge darkroom, along with several contact-printers for the 8x10 Deardorff in the studio. It was a wonderful experience, with a great instructor.Anyone else know how to hand-spot prints?
Shifter: ZZZZZZZ. ZZZ. ZZZZZZZZZZ. It's called Photoshop, Ansel lovers.
"If someone says something negative about a God, you're gonna get creamed here. " Not negative...stupid.Enjoy your fishing expedition...
Eric Hensel: There are a lot of very smart people asking really pointless questions...;)
I always give the benefit of the doubt. -until proven otherwise.
Omexis: They must be operating their cameras at a loss. I appreciate their commitment but Foveon is a loss product.
I am saying that, although there is extreme sharpness at the pixel level, I am also seeing false rendering. It's an *impressive* performance from an APSC sensor, though.
I understand the technology. Sorry --the grain structure is much larger, and crisp-edged on the foveon, creating the impression of greater detail, fine detail is crunchy and enlarged. The Bayer is fuzzier, but there's more *real* detail in the Bayer's. Look at this other example, the background looks like sand, and the threads are too hard edged, with filaments enlarged. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=sigma_dp2q&attr13_1=phaseone_iq180&attr13_2=nikon_d810a&attr13_3=sony_a7rii&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=raw&attr15_3=raw&attr16_0=100&attr16_1=35&attr16_2=200&attr16_3=100&attr171_3=off&normalization=compare&widget=1&x=-0.31724467069678636&y=0.060522009537117435
Wonderful personality, and expressions from the dancer...
Great detail with those cameras, but some of it is false, or exaggerated --look at the Phase 1. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=sigma_dp2q&attr13_1=phaseone_iq180&attr13_2=nikon_d810a&attr13_3=sony_a7rii&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=raw&attr15_3=raw&attr16_0=100&attr16_1=35&attr16_2=200&attr16_3=100&attr171_3=off&normalization=compare&widget=1&x=-0.5306649697741012&y=0.32997423418265104
Theelderkeynes: Talking to Sigma UK this afternoon they say the recommended UK sterling price will be the same, numerically, as that for the dollar. The pound may have sunk, but not that far...
That's quite a bit, though.
Wonderful body of work. It would have been nice to have seen some of them when I was studying Art and Photo, back in the late 60s, early 70s, but those were different times. The world is a bigger, better place, now.
Phileas Fogg: Interesting camera. Still pricey for me, especially with lenses. But it's time all 'pro-grade' cameras put at least flip up and down screen. My OMD EM-1 is imo a pro grade camera and I like the flip up and down screen options I have with it.
"you're making an imperative out of your opinion. That's what I object to." What was your opinion, deep7, chopped liver? We all want what we want, and justify the particulars a million ways...
The Davinator: Hmmmm....Canon 50f1.2 on a Somy......
"Sony is sharp but really overpriced" No...it isn't overpriced.
"That would be at odds with the minimalist ethic."The minimalist "ethic" is only as fixed as the line you draw in the sand at low-tide. I think a flipping screen's a great idea, as well.
dave veneri: Consider that if only 1% of the U.S. residents were fruit cakes and off their rockers ( like the ones who doubt these photos or think the Govt. is constantly out to doop us) then that means a whopping 3 MILLION people are mentally out to lunch! keep that fact in mind as I'm most certain that many of those 3 million are members of this forum.
"" what would be your state of mind if the evidence forced you to believe that the conspiracy theorists were actually right, and you were wrong?You're kidding, right? The evidence is *overwhelmingly* against your supposed "conspiracy" -in fact your little mind can't conceive of the mountains of evidence against it. No one doing real science even gives your supposed "conspiracy" a second thought. Nobody can hear you scream, out in space my friend :)
Honestly -it looks like a Spiratone ;)
Clint Dunn: I can't believe how many nutjob comments on here from the 'Truther' fools saying this is fake...'like the moon landing'. What has society come to that masses of people have such a distrust for their gov't that they want to re-write history. Some of these idiots even think the Earth is flat:http://anonhq.com/the-flat-earth-conspiracy-is-nasa-fooling-the-world/
Please tell me most of you were just fooling around or trying to be ironic...and not just complete morons.
Haha --I won't waste my time. The evidence is everywhere, it's *overwhelming*, and you can't see.
cgarrard: Affordable compact medium format- why did it take so long for manufacturers to do it... good on Hasselblad to make an announcement that actually interested me :)
"Affordable compact medium format- why did it take so long for manufacturers to do it"Pentax?
" No possible explanation for that." Certainly, there is -but your mind is closed.
You're just making yourself look naive, now. There were too few missions of either kind to develop any kind of statistical probabilities. As far as 6 missions with no one killed...they were damned good. Try again.
georgehere: "24-600mm equivalent F2.4-4 Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens"
Why is DPR so shy to tell the truth? The lens is equivalent to 24-600mm f/6.5-11.
Keep smilin' Carey...
