Have fun selling my photographs.

  • I guess that it is just my contrary nature, but a like the original scan better than your adjusted image.  Maybe if your adjustments had been more subtle, I might have agreed that they were an ...
  • Thank you for posting this.  What a sad day for the United States.  We have a large minority of the population who brought this on.
  • Probably the best solution is to buy some 120 film and wind it onto a 620 spool. Hopefully there is one in your camera. That is what I did to try an old Kodak Duaflex camera. Here is a link to my ...
  • Before I sent the camera off, I checked the battery holder with a volt meter.  It turns out that one of the springs was corroded.  When I cleaned that up, the camera again worked.  So I never sent ...
  • Created discussion thread Bundled for Cold Weather
    Here is a photo of my wife all bundled up for cold weather on one of our daily walks.  Nothing special about this photo, but I just thought it was interesting.  Taken with my cell phone since I ...
  • If you want the sharpest possible images at any distance you should not rely on depth of field.  For example, if you enlarge a section of an image, something within the depth of field will not ...
  • The problem with the F5 is that it is very difficult to get parts, and there are not many places to get one repaired. A few weeks ago I lost the battery tray for my F5.  I could not find one to buy ...
  • I have the same problem with an Olympus E10 digital camera.  One of the first real digital cameras that did not cost 5K or more.  It now sits on a shelf on display but not used.  Interesting ...
  • If well maintained, dip and dunk machines can be very reliable.  Of course, the user must know how to hang the film properly.  When my brother and I had a lab in the 70s and early 80s, we had a ...
  • A good lab would run control strips at minimum every day checking them with a high quality densitometer. And then make adjustments to the chemistry as needed.  In addition, even with automated ...
  • I have the BH-40 and use it with a Nikon D800 and Sigma pro 150-600. That lens and camera may be pushing the BH-40 a bit, but it works fine.  Note that the Sigma pro lens is heavier than the 200-500. ...
  • Unless the prints are made with an enlarger and not from a scanned negative as most labs do, the prints are really digital.  It is hard to tell how a lab makes these prints unless you ask them.  I ...
  • I also tried the lens on my Nikon D800 and had no problem with focus. I could even use the green focus dot. Here is one image and my post in adapted lens. https://4.img-dpreview.com/files/p/E~forum ...
  • Thanks, but they are not in stock now.  If they were in stock earlier, they must have sold quickly.  I have been put on there list to notify my when they are in stock.  I didn't get notified.  ...
  • Thanks Marty for the suggestion. Using 3d printing also occurred to me.  My guess is that it will be quite expensive for a single item.  I will check it out.  Maybe since the trays are so hard to ...
  • Kodak DCS 100 based on Nikon F3 body Kodak DCS Pro 14n one of the first full frame digital cameras based on Nikon body. Contax N digitall - first full 35mm frame digital camera Canon EOS-1Ds - 2nd ...
  • Makes sense.  I lost the battery tray for a Nikon F5 and was unable to find one anywhere.  So I went to Ebay looking for a non-working camera.  To my surprise none of them included the battery ...
  • Created discussion thread Pleased with KEH Camera
    I recently bought a Nikon F5 from KEH that was marked bargain. Boy was I surprised that the camera looks almost new to me. Just slight wear and a few minor scuff marks. I have no idea was it was ...
  • Well the only way I could find a battery tray was to buy another F5. I bought one from KEH that said bargain for $280. I was surprised at how good the condition of this camera is. Other than a few ...
  • I agree that spending 200K on a turntable is crazy.  Some reviewers claim that those turntables sound better than less expensive ones.  I have no idea if that is true, but even if it is, spending ...
