    One easy way to check that your film is properly loaded is as follow. 1. load the film 2. bring the film counter to 0. 3. Carefully rotate the rewind knob as if you were rewinding the film and stop ...
  • Il you feel that OVF is of some importance in your photographic experience, then you should by all means consider the x-pro 1. I have an x-pro 1, and have recently tried an xt1. The evf of the XT1 ...
  • I ran this highly unscientific test myself, with the 35mm 1.4. I focused on a cloudy sky with very visible shapes and shades. This to make sure I was focusing at infinity. Although it is not easy ...
  • I'm a great, great fan of Kertesz. But I will readily admit that the image I posted in not reminiscent of his fantastic style.
  • personally I don't see it as romantic. For me, it's the pigeon which really gives a certain sense of geometry to the image, as it seems to stand both in the center of the circle drawn by the ...
  • interesting that we have digressed from photography to literature here :-) Zola was certainly a bigger than life character. The opposition his writing met had to do with his vivid depiction of the ...
  • I didn't know that ! Thanks for the information. I will be looking for this book. Given the volume of his writing, it is amazing that he had time to also indulge in photography ! When did he sleep ...
  • There is a retrospective on HCB at the Georges Pompidou Center Until June 9. You may be able to save on the entry fee and get even more of HCB ! :-)
  • i have, more than once. I live in Paris :-) hundreds of negs, but for how many hours of going around looking for some valuable scenes ? personally, I have some 600 films archived, and that doesn't ...
  • Personally, when if face the work of an artist recognized worldwide which I don't understand (and that has happened to me more than once) I tend to question possibly my ability to grasp the ...
  • Precisely, he did not blaze away, but waited for what he called the decisive moment to take the picture. As for the examples linked, in my personal opinion, they are, except for a few exceptions, ...
  • I live in Paris and do a lot of photography there (check out my gallery for proof). Here's my two cents. 1. Paris is a walkable city, and a wonderful playground for photographers, so you are going ...
  • Replied in same here
    yes, the 18mm is not the sharpest, but the small size was a deciding factor for me. And yes, the 35L is better, and better be given the price difference :-) the 5d3 will show banding but you really ...

    Check out the noise on the shot posted here. For me it is very pleasing and film-like. And you are talking to a guy who routinely soups up Tri-x in Rodinal ! Which probably puts me in the category ...
  • I wouldn't say main and backup, but two systems in parallel. x pro 1 when I need to be light and/or inconspicuous. Canon 5DIII when speed matters (kids running, capoeira roda…) or when I need ...

    You have a point: wrong wording on my side (English not my first language). I share your opinion that in the end there is no such thing as truth in photography. So let me rephrase that : the Canon ...
  • Replied in same here
    me ? A xtrans hater ? I must have misunderstood the definition of the word hate ! :-) As for colors, sorry to disagree. In my opinion, the canon 5d3 has slightly better awb than the fuji. Of ...
  • Agreed, so much so that this what I do. I test both ways, on a tripod and handheld. It is the combination of both tests that give you the optimal of a particular camera/lens combination as well ...
  • Replied in same here
    Maybe a slight loss of sense of perspective here ? I mean, I'm thoroughly satisfied with the xtrans sensor: the x pro 1 for me has become the digital equivalent of my Leica M6, since digital Leica ...
  • When testing handheld, you are not just testing the sharpness of motion blur (a concept I fail to understand, by the way). You are testing how much motion blur a camera produces, due to shutter ...
