  • The lab I used is gone, sadly, but Ilford has a mail order lab: http://www.ilfordlab-us.com/ . I haven't tried them, but it is Ilford.
  • I could do a lot of further analysis, and it's clear you're done a lot, but I think it comes down to a few things.  Both cameras are excellent, so I don't think there's a wrong choice.  The best...
  • In your position I would likely look at the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and E-M1 as well as the Fuji X-E2 and possibly X-E1 (recently replaced by the X-E2).  Then I'd probably pick the one that felt the...

  • I'm not entirely clear on what you're asking, but the professionals I know all shoot digital, a few of which have never shot film.  The two who do still use film mainly do so for their personal...
  • High end audio can be fascinating. There is a lot of gear for reasonable prices that can really make a playback system come alive, but some people go off the deep end. As in the turntable alone...
