  • You took the words right out of my mouth (or put the thoughts in my head to then come out of my mouth)  Whatever way it happened I agree.  When I worked in camera retail (years and years back) ...
  • I agree that this website and related forums is really a tech/equipment oriented one and that's what you sign up for when you join.  Ask the admins to create a Photo Praise Forum and a Photo ...
  • Possibly, maybe - http://www.getdpi.com/wp/2015/03/h-cam-master-ts-adapter/
  • I agree with and love the simplicity of the Nikons (and my Horseman 6x9 field camera) I grew up with. We used to go out to look for photos to take, the camera's minimal controls confining us ...
  • Thanks all for continuing to add comments.  They are all very helpful.
  • There seems to be a day not far off when driving a car will be really be just sitting in a car, as taking a photograph is now more and more just pushing a button. Technology reigns supreme and ...
  • I fully concur with David. I don't want to see every level of tone of every object in an image. I happen to really like the grain as it is in your images. Post more if you get the chance. Cheers chk
  • Thanks for the link Marc.  Now I want to keep the whole Contax thing quiet so prices don't go up. Cheers chk
  • Marc Thank you again.  I didn't realize the variations in the lenses and will keep a watch out.  The 3D Pop is something I like for certain subject matter. Cheers chk
  • Mathieu and Marc, Thank you both for your replies and info.  These lenses seem to be gems for legacy glass and I am eager to put some to use. Very nice shots in this thread. PS, I was stationed in ...
  • Mathieu - is this a made in Germany lens or a made in Japan lens? I ask only because when I do a search on an auction site most are made in Japan and I don't know if there is a difference in the ...
  • I don't think any of the issues with quadcopters stems from people who fly them properly. All of the reservations about them and the possible regulations regarding their use are because of those who ...
  • Thanks all for your input. As I got from Tom's answer and as Neil Holmes wrote "It depends" I wanted to make sure that plunking down the cash for a Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS and appropriate adapter ...
  • Say I get a current Canon mount Tokina, Tamron, Sigma, etc. Do they work as well (focus, aperture control, etc) as the original manufacturer lenses when adapted (appropriate adapter) to a Sony or ...
  • Athough some pleasant shots, I would not describe these as portraits. They are mostly some casual headshots and group shots. I think the term portrait has been stretch thin here.

  • If one approach is appropriate to present a story, then that is the appropriate look.  Lawrence of Arabia in 70mm(65mm) is wide and a stunning piece of film. Cheers chk
  • It's amazing how something that was created as a procedure to overcome a limitation (using the whole film frame to retain the most image quality instead of wasting it) in film turns into a "look". ...
  • Replied in Irakly
    Absolutely agree with Paul.  Do not in anyway second guess these photographs.  The OP has a unique ability to see and what he has done is amazing.  A technical qualifier such as sharpness has no ...
  • You brought me into lives with your images.  Lives I never would have experienced otherwise.  I felt both detached and drawn in at the same time.  Thank you again and post more when you get the ...
  • Created discussion thread Interesting read from a photojournalist
