  • Both the Leica M and Leica M lenses are made by Leica not Panasonic. (there is no Panasonic equivalent) For the OP, take a look here for one opinion : http://luminous-landscape.com/cameraquest-leic ...
  • Replied in Many types
    Yes, it was a lazy example of a "simple" design. I had a Celestron C8 (orange, Schmidt-Cassegrain) and have sold many types of these mirror/cat lenses and telescopes,  including the MTO that I ...
  • I was explaining how a security guard may think or may be trained to think. In these situations it does help a lot to imagine how the other side thinks. I happen to know that I have nothing to ...
  • Replied in 500:1...
    Funny thing , I was just going to use that National Geographic example... Years ago, well before digital, I was having a chat with one of their photographers and one of the questions was about how ...
  • For you benefit , I will explain. One good way to plan a robbery or a  siege is to know the environment you intend to stage your siege in. So no matter if it is an office, a shop, a bank or a ...
  • Replied in Many types
    Yes , some are better than others... Here is one basic design, the Maksutov : Maksutov and now one of the more complex catadioptric versions, the 8 element Tamron SP 500mm : Tamron 500mm BB This is ...
  • Possibly a bit of paranoia but you can hardly blame them after the recent lindt Cafe saga. Not that I am insinuating you pose a risk but they don't know that , do they ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wik ...
  • There are several designs each with their own out of focus look. Pentax even made a zoom mirror lens, 500-800mm F8-F12. Vivitar made a very heavy but sought after 600mm F8 Series One as well as an ...
  • Nice but nothing to do with bokeh...
  • "I didn't enter any guesses, but I made my own guesses and they were all right." Yes and this morning I correctly guessed yesterday's weather
  • If it isn't already clear, the Raven does not exist , it's just a design :
  • I have two of those Raven on order. One for spare parts.
  • Neither... There is a Minolta 7000 there (35mm film) that has an electronic release and the Samsung NX 10 does have a movie mode. (on the main dial between Smart (in blue) and Scene)
  • A local comedian used to joke that man has nipples "just in case" . You need to like the absurd to get that one and if you do you will fall in love with that lever. That Epson (a Cosina dressed up ...
  • For decades both in Australia and the UK there have been many reports of large cats mostly described as "black panthers" roaming around the countryside. Now, just like with UFO reports, both ...
  • Yes the RD1 is a good spanner in the works. No visible screen, film wind on lever, look alike rewind at the other end, and very much looking like  the film camera it was based upon including the ...
  • Replied in wrong
    here is a film camera with the first and only Cinemascope LCD screen :
  • Replied in wrong
    "On the other hand there is never an LCD on the back of a film SLR." You may just want to take another look at the Maxxum 7 posted above...
  • The OP posted : "Of these cameras , how do you know which camera is film, which is digital?" Of those cameras , the ones in that photo, the movie mode distinction is correct. Anyway, in general ...
  • I never seen a movie camera that used film and looked remotely like any of the cameras in the Op's photo. The closet match would be the Nalcom that looked like an Hasselblad
