About me:

I've been enjoying Photography for over 30 years using everything
from Instamatic cameras to large format. Digital experimentation
began in 2001, but I still use film when it is more appropriate.
Regardless, my darkroom is now fully digital and my enjoyment of
this hobby keeps on growing. I take delight in sharing with other
people, the wonders I see in God's creation.

  • Thanks.  That helped a lot.  The challenge with knowledge databases is knowing the particular key words that are used that key not be obvious to everyone. Any words of wisdom on how the sync the ...
  • Aperture allowed me to have one registered copy on my lap top and my desk top at the same time.  Does anyone know if this is possible with C1P?  I have looked though their literature and have been ...
  • Stick them in a RAID enclosure or a NAS enclosure.  Run them as JPOD (just a pile of disks) or as a RAID 5 or RAID 10 to have some redundancy in case of an HDD failure. I have a QNAP Turbo NAS that ...
  • Thanks for sharing this.  I am a longtime Aperture user and I am looking for an appropriate replacement.  It is great to see differing points of view and experience to help me formulate a plan ...
  • Thanks for the advice and comments.  They are appreciated.  I am also concerned with how long the hardware will be supported by future operating systems.  Will likely go with something new a ...
  • I have both the Rokinon 14mm and Canon 17-40 mm lenses. The Rokinon is sharper and has better contrast. Super wide! The distortion is easily corrected with the PTLens plug-in. Manual focus is not ...
  • $800
  • Thanks.  I was planning on getting a high speed SSD for it and increasing the RAM.  Since I have not been looking seriously at new hardware since 2007, I was not sure how this one stacked up.
  • Created questions Mac Pro 5,1 worth it?
    I have an opportunity to pick up a mid 2010 Mac Pro 5,1 for a reasonable price.  Of course it is very expandable and upgradable and has firewire ports.  My question is, has it been eclipsed ...
  • There is nothing like the smell and feel of oiled cherry wood on my 4x5 field camera.  :-)
  • I run 3T WD Reds in my QNAP 419.  Two were good right from the start, the third was DOA and the fourth  died within a few days.  The replacements have been performing stellar now for almost 3 ...
  • Replied in Get a Holga
    It all depends upon what YOU want to do with the camera.  The 'Blads are wonderful cameras, but since you were originally interested in trying out medium format, it may be too much money for a ...
  • Exactly.  The other bonus is the light weight of the Rollicord.  It is mostly a compact empty box filled with air.  A very light compact medium format camera that is very easy to carry along on ...
  • Look for a Twin Lens reflex camera that does not have interchangeable lenses for the best priced entry medium format camera. They are small and light while providing a great photographic ...
  • You can get decent prints regardless of the hardware you are using. None are perfect. It sounds like you need to spend a little time working with the software manuals to understand the Print ...
  • Hi Chits, I have the 350D and the 50 f1.8.  You need to keep in mind that at f1.8, the depth of focus is extremely thin.  My initial frustration with this lens was more a result of ME not placing ...
  • Replied in I'm beat
    Check out a Depth of Focus Calculator and you will see that a 24 mm lens at f2.8 focused at 5 feet has at most 6 inches depth of field (3 inches each way).  That does not mean all 6 inches will be ...
  • Thanks Joger!  That was very helpful.  I will definitely look into a Sinology unit in the new year as a replacement to my QNAP.
