  • I appreciate the information.
  • Thanks to the help I received on this forum, I was able to sell my WWII vintage Leica and lenses on eBay. Thank you! The buyer was very happy with the sale, and so was I. A couple of months later I...
  • "Photo counter" is probably not the correct term. I'm planning to sell one of my older Olys, the C-5500. I know it didn't get much use, and I'd like to be able to state how many images were taken...
  • Replied in But Dave....
    It's a 4x5, a singleton. Doesn't appear to be any different than the others, but who knows? (Not I.)  :-)
  • Replied in But Dave....
    If that were the case, wouldn't the other negatives be black too?
  • I wish I knew why this happens with only certain negatives. I tried another negative a few minutes ago, and it scanned just fine. Back to the problem negative, and it was still a problem--emulsion...
  • I tried that yesterday, and the resulting scan looked just like the preview: all black. But thanks!  :-)
  • I've scanned many hundreds of b&w negatives (my dad's) using a Canon 9950f and have been more than happy with the results. Occasionally (rarely) an image will show up completely black in the...
  • Very much appreciate the helpful information--thank you!
  • Thanks, both of you. The information is helpful, and I appreciate it. I think I made my question about using the camera more complicated than it should have been. I'm trying to find out how to take...
  • Last month I posted here asking for advice on a vintage Leica. Here's the thread. Since then, I found another lens for the camera (pictured below). I assume it's a 135mm? Is there anything you can...
  • Thank you, Richard. The camera is a Panasonic (FZ35), and I found the AVCHD folder. Three folders inside it: AVCHDTN, BDMV, and IISVPL. I found STREAM in BDMV. My movie appears to be there. Do you...
  • After owning digital cameras for over a decade, I shot my first movie with one the other day. It was very short--just 1 min., 15 sec.--and I can play it back in my camera. But when I looked at my...
  • I've often said knowing where to stand is my strongest "talent" as a photographer. And I'm good at spotting photo ops. Plus I was lucky to have been taught about exposure when I was 10 years old....
  • I took a look at other shots from that night, and I think the glow you mentioned was probably one of these garden lights: Susan1 old farmhouse, 2 dogs, 5 cats, 3 computers
  • I took my LX3 to a July 4th party last night and took some pictures at twilight and after dark. This was my first experience photographing fireworks without a viewfinder. My previous method was to...
  • I was thinking of running a roll of film through it, mostly so I could tell prospective buyers it's functional. Also, I'm curious. But although my previous post probably sounded like I'm still...
  • My husband was born in 1930, so the camera was probably his father's. His dad served in WWII; I wonder if he acquired it overseas. I tend to be sentimental about these things, but I don't mind...
  • I found this camera and lens among my late husband's things. We were married 40 years, and I don't believe he used it in all that time. Any idea how old it is? Is it worth selling? I've sold some...
