  • I had an M8 for some time. If you're used to full-frame/135 film, the first thing to know is that the M8's sensor is a bit smaller, so there's a 1.33x "crop factor" for field of view. If you ...
  • Here are some samples, a mix of the M 240 and Alpha 7S : http://jimfisher.smugmug.com/keyword/lomography%20russar%2020mm%20f5.6/ I'm still working on a review, but it does have a look the reminds ...
  • Created discussions A Year Wiith the GR
    Hello all.... I wrote up a short blog post about my first year (well, 14 months or so, because I'm a bit slow sometimes to finish what I've started) with the GR. Hope you enjoy it. http://www.dague ...
  • Mechanical issue. The rangefinder cam bumps up against a baffle that's present in digital Ms, but not in film bodies. It can mount and focus in the close-focus part of its range, but can't be used ...
  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    The Boston gig has been cancelled. I wouldn't worry about it, though, it's not a big college town.

  • If aperture ismt a huge concern, the Zeiss C Biogon 35mm f2.8 is incredibly sharp, compact, and wont break the bank. I shot hit a ton if images on the M8 with a pre-FLE 35 Lux ASPH, and I truly ...
  • The question was in regards to manual zoom, not manual focus.
  • It's a power zoom only; there's no mechanical option like on the 12-50mm.
  • I wrote this a while back, talking about why I bought an M8 and why I was still using it in 2012. (I sold it later that year, to help fund an M240) : http://www.daguerreotyping.com/?p=2114 My job ...
  • Aha. Chalk that one up to aging brain cells. My bad.
  • Your best bet is tracking down the old K 28mm tilt shift lens. But it might be less expensive to buy a second hand NEX and the adapter. -- Jim http://www.pcmag.com/reviews/digital-cameras http://ww ...
  • Understood. I am puzzled that Nikon didn't put a split-prism in the DF, or at least offer it up as an option, given that it lauded compatibility with pre-AI lenses. But I believe you'd be able to ...
  • I sold my M8 about a year ago.  It's an older camera, with some limitations that your D800 doesn't have. The sensor is a CCD and, if you shoot Raw/DNG, I'd keep it set to ISO 1250 or less; was ...
  • No reason why it wouldn't. The goggles are just there to allow you to focus with the optical rangefinder of an M camera. -- Jim http://www.pcmag.com/reviews/digital-cameras http://www.daguerreotypi ...
  • Rangefinder glass is not known for its macro capability. Hawk's adapter will provide a more dramatic difference in close focus with wide-angle lenses. Consider a 28mm. But you won't get the ...
