  • For those complaining the price is too high, may I remind you it is the same as a Nikon D5 and only $500 US more than a Canon IDx-II . I doubt the FF cameras can duplicate the IQ of its larger...

    Outta My Way!
  • @Paul -- I didn't get the word that K200 was 120. Thanks for the correction.

    And I didn't even think about magazine work, where 35mm K"chrome had a monopolistic hold. Of course, there are fewer...

  • Here's what puzzles me and makes me doubt Kodachrome's return:

    The spokesman said Ektachrome was reintroduced because of professional demand. Ektachrome came in many sizes including 120 and 220,...

  • TheWhiteDog wrote "just need to get a camera and 2-3 primes..."

    OMG, you just opened my eyes! Film is the ultimate retro-hipster pose, but, you are right, and, if so, buyers will need...

  • "Nikon" was a mashup of its full name -- Nippon (Japan) Kogaku (Optical Works) -- so it would be pronounced like the first syllable of "Nippon".

    Another explanation is if the Japanese language has...

  • @Rolliex: Kodak has always held the processing of Kodachrome to in-house, for reasons that are probably technical but secret nonetheless. Whether they will license the process in future...

  • entoman wrote "photographing on film, and then developing and printing it...."

    Kodachrome is a slide film which can only be processed by Kodak itself, unlike Ektachrome, which can be souped in a...

  • @lancet: In my long lifetime, my dad had a new ca. 1960 122S (Amazon) I drove as a teenager; I was impressed most by its build quality. Eight years later, my sister bought a new 144. She loved...

  • I disagree. especially about your comparison with Volvo. First, I'll take on your implied generalization about Chinese ownership with respect to Hasselblad. If we were to believe the article's...

  • H'mm. Has my memory failed me in this matter?

  • I used the first version of this lens (sold by Vivitar as "Series 1" in the 70s). I sold it and regretted its sale for years; ten years or so ago I bought a later, autfocus version marketed by...

  • @Fujica -- Have you tried other, proprietary formats? Do you have the same problems with them? If so, it sounds like a software issue, or inexperience.

    Developing a raw file is just the first...

  • @Fujica -- What exactly do you mean? I import Pentax DNG files in Darktable, Irfanview, Raw Therapee, Gwenview, and other "developers" without any problems or artifacts at all. I imagine Leica's...

  • A third Tiltall user, here. I also keep a 25-year-old Velbon in the car, just in case I need support while out in the country. Never did yet, though....

  • I do not know whether. However, to do so does not seem like a good idea to me, as exposure for light-skinned people would be very different from that for darker-skinned people. It does not seem...

  • Sorry for the double-posting: I thought I had lost the first while collecting links, so I wrote it again. Dumb!
