WillemB's recent activity

  • By the way, is there an indian trading post and large parking place next to the bridge? If so, I happened to be there many many years ago...
  • No damage if for short moments. The last time I read about damage was about a damaged shutter from an old Leica. It had a small puncture burned in its rubbered cloth shutter by wearing it without ...
  • Replied in Leica watch
    Just like switching shirts, I change my $75 quartz watch with its yellow bezel for my Rolex Eplorer2 with black bezel. The cheap Lorus Sports is so sunny and nice that it makes me happy ...

  • Hi, Something seems not right... Left turning versus right turning star trails without the distortion in the landscape of a UWA lens? Too light sky for the very bright star trails combined with the ...

  • Replied in Free Turn
    Sorry, Claude, not in California, but in Europe. However, a year after my picture was taken, the blue lady temporarely was removed , due to the upcoming work on the building in the background ...

    Where?
  • Thank you Dave, for your reply. I will read the articles and make up my mind. Regards, Willem
  • Created question thread MamIya 6 adapter?
    Hello, What to do with my beautyful Mamiya-6 lenses? Just sell them cheap with the body or looking for a possible adapter (perhaps a tilt-shift adapter for FF)? Regards, Willem
  • And the sensor in the Fujifilm HS50EXR is effective only 8 MB...
  • I think that ‘ La campanella’ is his most virtuous work, meaning most difficult to play on the piano...It was his personal show piece iirc.
  • Could  Goethes Lotte have met him in Weimar? Different times probably.
