just Tony's recent activity

  • I put new batteries in my Nikon F3 which I’ve dry fired a few times without issues in the last two decades, and got a few rolls of interesting B&W film to play with, coming soon. But the camera is ...
  • NEOWISE is a straightforward naked eye view from inside town and quite easy to capture with a relatively casual effort. Z 7, 85mm @ f/2.0, 4 seconds at ISO 400, stationary on tripod . 1.5 hours ...
  • Fwiw, due to the disruption of Covid-19 they have reduced the volume of services which remain available to already existing customers. They say that they are not currently accepting new ones. The ...
  • My soon to be wife when watching me prep the camera bag for a trip: “Do you actually own only black things? Seriously?” Me: “Well... yeah, now that you mention it. Is the wedding still on?” 🤞
  • 1970: load the film 2020: load the card
  • The item finally arrived three days after I wrote the story above. It was left on my doorstep a mere two hours after the FIRST notification I received from the carrier that it had left the ...
  • While projecting the images onto a screen and shooting the result is very simple to imagine and you could get the screens from garage sales for mere pennies, it will give you significant headaches ...
  • Replied in Nikon F2
    The Nikon F2S, F2Sb and F2AS finder versions had an accessory that could control the aperture of declicked Ai-S lenses. There’s a lug on every Ai-S lens’s aperture ring for it that isn’t often ...
  • Yes, with careful shopping really good ones can be obtained. I’m using them to illuminate prints on my walls. Just be a touch cautious about CRI. There are some very well grounded people in the ...
  • Think of the ES2 as part of a light table (no light source) that provides the functions of holding the film, doing that parallel to your sensor, and excluding stray light. Those are achievable ...
  • Replied in Why bother?
    Different tools for different goals. If Ansel Adams ever got good results with reflectance spot meters then the design concept might not have been completely wrong. His understanding of exposure ...
  • Replied in Spider Rock
    Even better is to not apply sharpening to the sky area in the first place. In Lightroom there is a control in the sharpening module called Masking that deselects areas with lesser detail. And most ...
  • The Sony IMX321 sensor is in the D500. Much of the rest of your observations would be attributed to the jpg generating firmware not the sensor hardware.
  • Iterative techniques take time, they just do. The long list above illustrates how that could become a lot of time. However by using both hands to adjust two controls at once the process can be ...
  • I'm sorry to hear about your frustrating experience. I would expect that the store will take care of it financially since that has always been the case for me when things have gone wrong. They ...
  • 🤣 Back on topic, it’s easy to detect the presence of OBAs in papers that I have here at home, yet another to reliably figure that out in an online catalog before I populate the shopping cart. ...
  • I find that these “deep violet” lights do indeed work for this purpose. If you need to train your eyes for what to look for in the “negative” cases, shine the light on the matte side of a piece of ...
  • After chucking the log scaling I'm seeing it much more clearly now. Thanks again.
  • Jim, what is the feature on that linked graph that calls your attention to 3200? Not knowing what you’re looking for it seems fairly unremarkable at my first glance. Thanks.
  • Replied in Maybe
    In theory, Theory and Practice are the same.... you can finish the rest. With D500, 500PF, my hands , and 1/2500 second, hands down having the VR activated gives me a superior keeper ratio vs no ...
