AscherJim's recent activity

  • Replied in Rodrigue
    And perhaps even some of the "Okies" (from the 1930's).
  • I'll go down to my local bank cash machine just after breakfast and will get back to you.  Many thanks, Jim
  • I disagree with the negative view just expressed.  In fact, I was wondering if I can buy a print.  (Maybe as a contribution to your eventual purchase of a 246.)  Keep at it.  You definitely show ...
  • A further thought on the matter of the SD1 arguably being comparable to the Leica 246 in production quality of black-and-white images, one thing the Sigma SD15 (my camera) and the SD1 have in ...
  • I do use MIS products, namely their black carbon ink and their mixing base, all of which Roark was (and is) an adviser to them for.  I use the QTR rip, with printing "formulas" I've modified from ...
  • I have for years been a great "fan" of Roark's (and have in fact consulted him by email on occasion).  The printing mixture I finally settled on several years ago is a three-ink mixture -- 100%, ...
  • I do indeed have a printer (in fact, two of them) and I mix my own carbon dilution inks.  But I believe there still are intrinsic limitations in ink jet printing, no matter how many dilutions of ...
  • Your latest responses to DMiller and myself again are most elucidating.  However, in addition to the cost of the new Leica -- which I'd have one hell of a time justifying to my wife (as well as ...
  • Ted:  In my earlier response to Truman, I forgot to mention that I am in this forum because I'm also a proud owner (and user) of a Sigma SD15, which I have additionally used for infrared ...
  • Truman:  You present a very good point (or points).  I'm a black-and-white photographer (for about 70 years!), but isn't the use of Silver Efex Pro really just a matter of applying filters after ...
  • Tom:  I considered this method previously myself, but rejected it because it seem too unnecessarily "cumbersome," requiring that an actual photo in focus and well lit be taken of the labeled ...
  • Tom: Regarding keeping track of what lens(es) I've used with each sequence of photos, I've recently evolved the following "technique" which, as odd as it may sound, is quite easy and works quite ...
  • As the LensTagger site states at the outset, it is designed to accommodate "legacy" lenses, i.e. lenses that are not electronically tied to the camera and provide lens data automatically.  With ...
  • Tom: A belated response on this other subject (GXR feature) you've raised, I've been using for years the external LensTagger Lightroom plugin for EXIF labeling of my photos which allows me far ...
  • Many thanks for the clarification -- and refreshing my memory on how Duncan died.  I find it interesting (to myself) that the two cameras I'm currently using -- the GXR and the RD1 -- range from ...
  • Tom:  Can you translate that for northern hemisphere residents like myself?  Am I correct to interpret that as a form of praise?  Regards, Jim
  • Great combined response everyone.  You've all provided me a very clear means to get a useful grip on this feature (rather well-hidden by the manufacturer!).  With all the impressive technological ...
  • Tom:  I'd like to jump in here to state that in my several years now of much happiness with my GXR A12, I've never been able to figure out just exactly what the "Box" mode is -- and how to access ...
  • Having converted by SD15 to work with Nikon lenses, I was then able readily to obtain adapters for other makes of lenses to work with my new "Nikon" mount (including even for my ...
  • I converted my SD15 to use Nikon-F lenses, with the simple kit I purchased from SigmaCumLaude. http://www.sigmacumlaude.com/ They have kits for many different brand lenses for converting Sigma ...
