  • Replied in Social media
    But I'm a facebook user.  So you were. Another superficial comment.  All the disclaimer needed its to include a "some" or "many" or "certain" etc.  But instead you just paint with a broad brush.  ...
  • Replied in Bingo! (nt)
  • Replied in Social media
    Exactly.  We are social critters and technology has provided this easy avenue for social interaction.  Surely some people over do it.  But that's true of so many things.  Like most things, in ...
  • Replied in Social media
    I use Facebook to converse and share ideas.  I don't consider DPR to be an anonymous forum. I post my real name. A selfie need not be any more vain than sending a snapshot of your vacation to ...
  • That's a pretty gross oversimplification. I've posted a two or three "selfies" in my lifetime. All times when traveling on moderately long road trips. All times while on the road. In each case, I ...
  • I was aware that some lenses were constant aperture via electronic control of the aperture and accounted for that in my initial comment about constant aperture lenses.  I guess it makes sense that ...
  • Yes, but that's not the way images are typically viewed.  You just described why the 40-50mm lens is considered normal - it's perspective matches the typical viewing distance/magnification of a ...
  • About what I expected.  And not really very good. You are just back-fitting a definition to fit your assertions.  Asserting the requirement for chemical reactions eliminates digital by definition. ...
  • Even at the end of the 20th century, as digital was clearly pushing film out, Kodak was still hard at work at doing the same thing sensor makers are doing today - increasing sensitivity and detail ...
  • Some photographers today stick with one brand of camera over another because the prefer the colors and look that they get from certain sensor companies. I've shown that Panasonic and Olympus used ...
  • You make a number of valid points about how film differs from digital. But your assertions about film being somehow organic is so far unsupported. I looked up a number of the different uses for ...
  • Well, it isn't as though there were no filters used.  The sensors in digital cameras have UV and IR filters in the filter stack on their imaging face.  These filters should knock out some of the ...
  • For the same reason that film engineers have tried to do the same with film grain - that is, come up with emulsions that minimize it as much as possible. In short, because from an ...
  • Replied in Mostly false.
    To the OP, the above is you best answer if your goal is to understand what is going on.
  • If you change the word "distortion" to "perspective" or maybe "perspective distortion", then the three points of understanding that you list are pretty much correct unless someone want to get ...
  • The exit pupil is not the image circle that would be projected onto paper. It is the circle you would see when you look directly through the back of the lens. Take the lens caps off of the ...
  • Well I think this is where the film guys don't get it.  Yes, the grain formation is different.  But it isn't any more or less "natural."  That's just the term chosen to describe film based on the ...
  • Which is basically what I said, to which you then decided to assert that they were the components upon which the image is built.  Now you are back to what I was saying, that noise is an artifact ...
  • I guess it's only a matter of time before the "3D" nature of film would be brought up. Sigh ... Someone's emotional impressions of an experience don't mean much here. I'm sure I'd feel nostalgic if ...
  • My finger tips became "tanned" because I'd get too lazy to use tongs and would move prints from developer to stop to fixer by hand.... ;^) Though that may be a different kind of disaster than what ...
