  • For most purposes...it works just fine to use some kind of light table, lay the negative on the table, lay a piece of glass across the negative to flatten it, and photograph it by hand using any ...
  • I bought a new desktop computer, and went back to scanning some of my old film, but the scanner had been flakey for a long time. Hooking it up to Windows II was, however very easy, I bought a ...
  • Sounds right.  I bought a V.  I don't use that other stuff. Tradeoff was "2 exactly the same" vs "USB connection".  Neither one seemed overwhelming, but the USB seemed better.
  • I come to this question myself, and I thank those from two years ago for the insight. I will point out that connecting my old LS-4000 (bought new in 2002) to a modern computer was nearly problem ...
  • Why they don't just enable this is bizarre.
  • <i>The 11-22mm seems great but it's not fast at all.</i> Can you explain a bit about how you intend to use your new lens such that the need for speed dominates all other factors?
  • Get the EF-M 11-22. It's a real bargain. Keep the M around even after you move on, just to use that lens.
  • Buy a new system when you can't pass by what you're missing, but keep your M gear around. There are a few things that the M system is close enough to the best that obsolescence is far away. For me, ...
  • This is a Sony camera forum. We don't know much about legacy brands. In particular, it's a "Sony Cyber-shot" forum, which references cameras without changeable lenses. But full frame mirrorless ...
  • The R and Z lenses definitely aren't old models with a adapter slapped on. There's an RF version of the Canon 600mm/f4. Sells for $12,999. https://static.bhphoto.com/images/multiple_images/images50 ...
  • Why would they be so foolish as to waste money investing in products with no viable market? They all knew what they were doing when they abandoned this collapsed market. They can be expected to ...
  • Guess what cameras he used. The photographic world pretty much changed between 1960 and 1969, driven largely by the Nikon F.
  • And what other useful lessons for the future do you draw from century-old cameras? Until well into the '60s, the sensor we now know as "full frame" was thought of as far too small for professional ...
  • There aren't any new superzoom cameras, as the camera makers have abandoned this shrinking sector. They're following the money, which right now is in full frame mirrorless lenses. Once that's ...
  • Rubbish. The cameras didn't need to support tilt/shift. Those (a few architectural photographers) who needed them could buy TS lenses. Most didn't. Show us a serious camera from 1922 which didn't ...
  • Even in this day, many are still buying superzooms from 2015-2019. Correct, because none of them has advanced since about 2018, and they remain competitive even limited to last generation technology.
  • The next era is going to be people buying full frame lenses and putting them on crop sensors. Even if, we presume the cost of a full sensor lens is pretty much the same as the cost of an APS-C ...
  • Someone who sometimes 'needs' the same quality and resolution at 1000mm equivalent or beyond is better off with a second camera for that. You and I come to a different valuation for having one very ...
  • Fine, but who do you think will buy this monster camera with a tiny sensor and probably very soft lens? Not that monster, not that soft. Recall that there was a time when a "pro" camera needed to ...
  • That would be APS-C, not 1". Smaller. Much smaller. We can now look back on the first superzoom era, roughly 2012 to 2018.  The three most advanced cameras from that era (judged subjectively by ...
